This American Life: The Rookie

+

I was listening to back episodes of This American Life and came across a lovely piece about an ex-pat American trying to save his son from the evil European with... Walter Johnson and Ty Cobb? Though the 5-year old has never seen a baseball, the baseball bedtime stories rivet him.... Go to the 27:00 mark to hear that part (though the first segment is worthwhile, as well). Also. Larry King said this yesterday (regarding the Miami Heat): "Well, if you're a sports fan, you know that generally people think that automatically an all- star team would beat an everyday other team. That's not true...For example, if you took the all-star team of the National League this year and played the Phillies, Phillies would beat them probably seven or eight out of ten, because they're a cohesive unit." I did not know that.
