It is now Football Season

The World Series ended last night.....finally. Congratulations, Phillies. They won in '80 and now in '08. Break out the confetti in 2080, I guess.

I love word play and one of my favorites is baseball related. Spoonerisms occur when you flip flop the first letters of two words. How's this: former Baltimore Oriole centerfielder Paul Blair. His Spoonerized name stated his occupation. Paul Blair, the ballplayer. Wonder if his parents had dreams of a major leaguer when they named him? Unlikely.
