So the Diamondbacks won the World Series. With all the magic New York had, and the recent bad times, it's tough not to have mixed feelings about that. Plus, I hate when really young new franchise teams win, since it was the punkass Florida Marlins that bought big talent, beat in the Cleveland Indians in 7, and then completely dismantled the team the next year, having got what they paid for.

Ok, this is kind of odd. It's an old commercial for Joust on the Atari 5200. It's a full two minutes. The middle part is a bit long and pointless, but the final 20 seconds is very bizarre and wonderfully spooky and surreal.
