World Series Game 2: NY Yankees take it 3-1

2009ws

Yanks take Game 2,  3-1

Series tied 1 game a piece

WSJ blogged the game here

Derek-Jeter-celebrates-du-001

Here is the moment I yelled at the TV:

10:40: I need to know if Derek Jeter tried to sacrifice with two strikes, or if Joe Girardi signaled him to do it. Girardi should be the first manager fired in the middle of a World Series if it was him.

And Yankees fan deluxe Ben Kabak of the great Yankees blog River Avenue Blues notes that Jeter bunts on his own all the time with two strikes. Yanks fans should hope The Captain doesn’t become The Manager in 10 years.

10:38: Tim McCarver: “At 0-2, there is no way Jeter is still bunting. Too good a hitter.”

Jeter bunts foul and is out. — Fitzgerald

Medium ‘Night of the Living Dead – Bite Me’ Episode airs Friday, 900pm

SciFiWire has it, sounds awesome. We love the show, our previous posts on Medium here.

…Medium is planning one of the more amusing Halloween episodes we’ve come across, a TV mash-up with Night of the Living Dead. The episode is (also amusingly) called “Bite Me” and runs Friday, Oct. 30, at 9 p.m.

“We literally insert Allison into the 1968 George Romero movie Night of the Living Dead,” said Medium creator and executive producer Glenn Gordon Caron. Of course, there’s also a mystery to be solved in her waking world, involving a missing funeral director.

'Bite Me' airs Fri., Oct. 30th at 900pm on CBS

Caron said the idea of putting a character from one of his series into an old movie has been kicking around for 20 years. “Actually I was going to do it on Moonlighting years ago. We were going to do it with an AIP movie. I think it was Godzilla vs. Mothra.” (Now, that’s an episode we would have watched!)…

…”Craig and I thought it sounded like a fun idea, but we had to find the right film,” said Doherty. “We did a search for public-domain films and realized that Night of the Living Dead was public domain. It was really amazing and perfect. Craig and I are huge zombie movie fans. … We also thought it was perfect for a Halloween episode.”

To provide some sense of jeopardy for the dream, the writers decided to do something they haven’t done before on Medium, where Allison begins to suffer real physical damage from her adventures into the world of black and white. “You have to be as worried about Allison as you would be if this were her waking life. So a zombie bite in the dream will follow her out into her waking life.”….

Update: Bill finally signed! see here

Update 4: 11/2 New thread up to follow the UE vote here

Update 3: Reid has put off the vote as expected to next week. Vote to close debate now scheduled for Nov 2nd (CQ Politics):

The extension and expansion of a tax credit for first-time homebuyers has been incorporated into Senate legislation that would extend unemployment benefits.

The Senate will hold a procedural vote on the legislation on Nov. 2. A vote on final passage of the entire package probably will happen by the end of next week.

The underlying bill on unemployment benefits had been held up by disagreements among Senate leaders about how to handle amendments.

…Reid offered a time agreement that would have allowed for consideration of two Republican amendments aimed at funding the unemployment benefit extension using TARP funds and increasing oversight of the bailout. But no amendments will be taken up next week, a spokesman for Reid said Friday….

AceShowBiz:

…During the (Paley Ctr) panel held in Los Angeles on Wednesday, October 28, creator Alan Ball and other writers such as Raelle Tucker and Alexander Woo came out with a lot of spoilers for the new season.

First thing first, Ball answered the question about season 2’s cliffhanger where Bill was abducted by an unknown person. Ball spilled that fans need not wait long because it will be revealed immediately in the first episode. Another juicy spoiler would be shirtless Eric. “ appears without most of his clothes in the very first episode of season 3,” Ball revealed.

OH AWESOME!! Readers of the books know what that likely means!! Sookie finding Eric wandering on a road naked with amnesia perhaps?! YOWSA! And Debbie Pelt is coming, oh that evil Debbie!
