Top of 9th inning, Hunter Pence hits a game-tying hit with two out.
Top of 11th inning, Hunter Pence hits a home run to give the Giants the lead.
Bottom of 11th inning, Hunter Pence dives to catch a two-out, bases loaded, sinking liner to save the game.

Hunter Pence, the living legend, begins tonight.

Knowing they were facing a rookie Quarterback, the Buccaneers threw some defensive looks at the Vikings that Bridgewater had not seen before.

That is a classic clip.

One of my favorite all time quotes comes from a James Joyce fishing trip of legend with a few close friends. Can't remember who all the others were (notable wits and intellects), but they were in or beside a stream when one of them caught a fish, took it off the hook, dropped it in his creel and proclaimed:

"Woman's plaice is in the holm".

"[She] wouldn't be able to handle it It's nothing against you personally but all the time I'm alive, a woman will never referee in my league."

Nothing against you, it's more an issue with the 50% of the world that shares the same gender as you.

Does size matter? Apparently so at White Hart Lane.

Watching the 30 for 30 on The Boz, which is fantastic.

The quote of the night from Brian so far, in response to getting popped for steroids: "I let The Boz handle it, and The Boz doesn't make good decisions."
