Interviews are always bad

Yesterday's game was pretty interesting-- for a game without any Jeff action.

Angels in the Infield did do an interview with Jeff, wherein we learned the following:

1) Jeff's back had been bothering him for months

2) A "fight" like the one at BP on Tuesday, can unite the team not just for a night, but for an entire season. Who knew?

3) Baby Luke (Jeff's son) is 5 months old-- probably.

4) Jeff has ADD or some other affliction that makes it impossible for him to sit still.

5) Jeff can use (sort of) the word camaraderie, but seems sketchy on who the opposing team is, witness "The Texas".

6) Jeff has a heretofore unknown affinity for SCUBA diving.

7) What do you get when you put Jeff on camera? Jeff is the deer, the camera is the headlights, you can imagine the rest.

Thank goodness we won the series. As Paula Abdul would say, it was "key important." If we can't even make a solid case for ourselves in our division, there is no way we can speak of any kind of post season aspirations. These were critical games. And, oddly enough, they were won by pitching-- something I thought we needed help with.
