Hope everyone had a lovely and relaxing holiday weekend. Did you know it’s September now? Crazy, huh. Also, did you know there are 24 Mariners baseball games left in 2017? The fuck, right? Also also, did you know the no-pitcher-havin’ Seattle Mariners are still somehow only 2.5 games out of the second Wild Card spot? I bet you did know that because otherwise you probably wouldn’t be here on good ol’ LL, the last bastion of goodness on these here internets.

Oh yeah, another thing that happened over the long weekend was Justin Verlander rudely crashing the AL West party. Fuckin’ dick. Hey, remember the last time he faced the Mariners and had his no-hitter and whole day ruined by these very same Seattle Mariners? Do that again, Mariners, but also while beating the god damn Astros.

Hurricanes, wild fires, stealing signs with Apple Watches, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria.....good gravy. Let’s watch some god dang baseball and chill the heck out.
