Hello, and welcome to this game thread.

Here you may write about Game 5 of the American League Championship Series. Or, as this lovely British attorney coined it, “The American League Baseball Finals.” Oh, England.

Here you may also write about Not Baseball, but if that’s your preference might I direct you to the latest OT? (These were my favorites for years, because I’m a terribly nosey person and love to learn about the lives of others.)

You may not write about politics, nor may you slander candy corn.

Here’s a consolation prize:
