UPDATE: The puppy is dead. Suicide. The sweep in Florida was too much. This is a low moment for me. I really thought this would be a boost. Now I'm out $350 not to mention burial costs. I went ahead and named him posthumously. Kip. It's in honor of my favorite Kip of all time. That's right. Kip Adotta, the very funny comedian. What now? I've got some ideas that we'll kick around on Monday's show. But for now this will have to do for weekend inspiration for the ballclub:
IF THE BRAVES DON'T MAKE THE PLAYOFFS, THIS
PUPPY PRAYING MANTIS DIES!
I'm not even talking about winning the NL East. Forget about that. Just get in the playoffs.
Bosox win 4-1. Whatever.
I bought this puppy for the baseball season. I have not named her because I don't want to grow attached. If you want the puppy to live, let's get some winning going.
