The Rays. The fucking Rays!


Eleven seasons. 1,033 losses. And the Tampa Bay Rays are in the playoffs.

We can't think of a better story in baseball since Sosa and McGwire chased and caught history in 1998. Probably the best season in sports since the New Orleans Saints captured the affection of a battered city in 2006. Last to first is trite as hell, but Tampa was a fucking doormat for years, and they started to believe, have a wealth of young talent, and shit, they're in the playoffs!

Go Tampa! Go Rays! World Series or bust! We're getting our playoff mohawk tomorrow.
