I’ve discovered the roots of my personal recession: dumb online bets

Yup: yesterday’s ill-considered offer to pay out $20 to anyone who didn’t laugh out loud at The Great Schlep has put me in the hole. I can’t even blame a bunch of bozos, either: Baseball Musings’ Dave Pinto and ESPN’s Keith Law both took, and won, my challenge. (Check out Keith’s September 9 piece on Papelbon and his pitch selection; it goes well with my recent post on Pap and closer fatigue.) Anyway. I’ll know better than to lead with my chin — at least where comedic taste and money is concerned — in the future.

Seriously: try to watch this without spitting up your Cheerios. And I don’t care which side of the political spectrum you’re on. (Be warned: I haven’t lost thus far.)
