Yikes. The Dodgers took Game One yesterday, although it wasn’t necessarily easy. But thanks to the playoff heroics of (long sigh) Chris Taylor and (delighted giggle) Yasiel Puig, the long-suffering fans of LA were treated to a playoff victory, and we were treated to Keith Olbermann ascending to the Peaks of Ornery. Then, because Puig is the gift that does not stop giving, we were treated to this response:
