Sad, but exciting day

450px-aaron_715.jpgThis day of the year is always a sad but exciting day. Today is the first day since early this spring that there has not been baseball.  This reprieve will only be for a short time since the playoffs start tomorrow, but it is still another season in the books.  This year is  particularly sad since my #1 Team the D-Rays stunk again, and my #2 team the Braves crashed at the end of the year missing the playoffs by a long-shot.  Additionally, I was in first place all year in my fantasy league only to loose to my brother in the championship round (congrats Steve).  This year is more sad than exciting, but the playoffs always help to cheer me up.
