This thread, as always, is dedicated to the late Duke Snider, whose hatred for Halloween and that certain team in Norcal were well-documented.

I tried to arrange an orange-free October this year, but the Asterisks* forced their way into the playoffs. Well, so did the other "obnoxious orange"-clad team.

Unfortunately, Houston is still playing, while that team is--thankfully--sitting at home.

Our vampires only drink blue blood!

And, making its return after pre-emption by COVID last year, is the Aztecs Halloween game taking place tonight at Tony Gwynn Stadium!
Very Happy

We were not able to go because we were invited to a Game 4 viewing party at the home of some good friends. How was it? I was sorry to miss it but they did not plan it very well. It should have been tomorrow afternoon so as not to interfere with the World series. That would be the actual day of Halloween, too. They have played it on Sunday afternoons several times in the past.

Headline from yesterday's L.A. Times following Braves' Game 5 loss:

"Atlanta Fails to Exorcise Demons"
