It’s a new month! October certainly went out like lion, and I’m hoping for a gentler November all around.

  • Lizard = The best Lizzie.
  • MVL = Most Valuable Lizzie’er: The person with the most Lizzies in the period under review (usually the past two weeks)
  • Top 10 of 2012 = The folks with the most aggregate Lizzie points YTD (1 point for every Lizzie, 3 points for every Lizard)

As you already know, this is all completely subjective and according to my whims. Let’s go!


  • I remember when I was 20 and thought I had life experiences that were sufficient to guide me.
  • I see but one egg.  “Bacons and egg.”
  • His juevos are covered up
  • My Halloween costume would be the umpire who called the infield fly rule in the Braves-Cardinals game. All I need is a seeing-eye dog.
  • There’s no way to avoid it any longer–the Cardinals held on to win 8-3 over the Giants. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go shout at strangers and set something on fire.
  • This is why there are no Lizzies in politics.
  • Jeff Samardzija came through with a successful conversion to the starting rotation. Admit it…you thought this experiment would explode in our faces. I certainly did.
  • Losers!
  • What about free agents like Johnson, who are slightly overpaid but play really hard?  Certainly there is room for a free agent of that nature.
  • Reed has now had 10 seasons in the bigs, that means he also plays long.
  • Elsewhere in the National League, if you had October 23rd in your When Will Ozzie Guillen Get Fired pool, congratulations.
  • Their viewing choice was less mainstream–a British stop-motion cartoon about the adventures of a group of bath toys called the Rubbadubbers.
  • Hmm..didn’t Eddie Murphy in Coming to Amereica have a team of “ruba dub dub bers?”
  • “The royal penis is clean”
  • “…, your highness.”
  • So the Giants won using Ryan Theriot and the bunt. That must really chap a lot of hides.
  • I’m coping by watching video highlights from the season.
  • Must be a pretty short video.
  • She didn’t say they were Cub highlights…
  • I’m coping by watching my copy of “Optometric and Cardiac Diagnostic Highlights by Sports Blog Distracted Health Care Practitioners.” Spellbinding.
  • Zoom.
  • I have a fantasy team… it has nothing to do with sports, however.


  • I’d like to see a woman become the new Chicago Cubs color commentator.
