200 grey-haired BBWAA members just shakingly zipped up.

The destruction of the working man's American dream. Very funny.

If it was just the trailer promoting the run-up to the postseason I could take it l because I'd never see it. But since it will be used going to and returning from every damn commercial break during TBS's playoff games, I despise it without having seen it.

Was that a shot of Adrian Gonzalez in a Dodger uniform I saw?

Bruce is playing around the corner at Vernon Downs racetrack tonight.

Be nice if there was more of the team with best record in baseball (and which is actually going to win the thing) than one millisecond shot of Joey Votto...

Hot damn! On one hand, it's kinda funny in a Born in the USA way to see anything off of Wrecking Ball be used for something like this, but at least they picked a single that actually is supposed to be uplifting.

Seeing the Boss at Wrigley next weekend and I'm pretty sure it will be the best thing I see at Clark & Addison this year.

I would have preferred "Land of Hope and Glory" by Madness.

From the new album Wrecking Ball? Hope and Dreams was on the Live in NY album like a decade ago, and that version was way better than this one.

"This train, is for saints and sinners..."

Cut to Derek Jeter and Pete Rose.

"This train, is for whores and gamblers..."

Cut to .... #justsayin

You got to hand it Springsteen, I like him every bit as much now as I did 30 years ago.

[hands that to Springsteen]

For me, "Hope & Glory" by the Skids.

"Power and the Glory" is really not one of Saxon's best songs. Maybe "See the Light Shining".

Land of Hopes & Dreame & 4.0 Overnight Ratings ... the Postseason on TBS!!!

Yikes, way too optimistic:

Land of Hopes & Dreams & 2.0 Overnight Ratings ... the Postseason on TBS!!!!!

Oh dear, my prediction in comment #24 is fated to be more true than ever before.
