There was a time at which I would've sat around after this and tried to spit out a full wrap-up. Those days have long since passed. Just once I'd like to have a September where the emotional lift provided by an exciting team with playoff aspirations helps push against the cumulative fatigue of blogging nearly every day at considerable length. This, alas, will not be that September.
Only 20 left to go. Honestly, as much as this year's playoffs are shaping up to be a nightmare, and as dull as the dead points of the offseason can get, I just want this to be over. This is really wearing me down.

The LL community is represented by 25% of the faces in that picture. 37.5% if you count Scrappy the Scapegoat's owner, who's the elderly hobgoblin in the bottom left. That is one committed evil-doer.
