Sox vs. O's, 7:10.

I'd tell you all the things Michael Kay said in today's All-Time Jeter Ass-Kissing Extravaganza, but you wouldn't believe me. You'd think I was doing some kind of sarcastic post. I will say that Jeter getting his 3,000th hit the way he did should be an example to all those ballplayers who cheat on their taxes, are constantly stroking their ego by appearing in countless commercials, and constantly try to steal calls and deceive the umps to get an advantage. Oh wait...
