Didn't think it was poosible, but I've actually gotten cuter.


Universal Children's Week starts today.


Arlington, Tx. -- If the Rays had not made the playoffs with their dramatic come-from-behind win against the Yankees on Wednesday, Kelly Shoppach would have hit the road Friday night, making the 1 1/2-hour drive from Fort Worth to Waco, Texas, to watch the McGregor Bulldogs play Florence High.

Instead, the Rays reached the postseason and Shoppach spent Friday night dismantling the team he adored as a youngster growing up in the Fort Worth area.

Shoppach homered twice and Matt Moore continued to live up to all the hype as the Rays posted a 9-0 win in the first game of their best-of-five American League Division Series with the Rangers.

Shoppach had five RBIs and three hits off Rangers starter C.J. Wilson that put the game on ice early. In doing so, Shoppach joined Johnny Bench as the second catcher to have two home runs and five RBIs in a postseason game.

Read the rest here.
