Mets become the first team to clinch a division, their first NL East title since 1988.
  • This could've happened as early as Thursday, when the Mets had a 3-game lead and the Phillies had a double-header, but the Phillies refused to lose and the Mets were swept over the weekend in Pittsburgh.

Armadillos crawling into southern Illinois
  • When will the Illinois congress seal off the southern border to prevent those foreign nuisance animals from taking the road kill jobs which rightfully belong to native Illinois nuisances.

The trailer for The Invisible
  • "From the studio that brought you "The Sixth Sense," "The Invisible" is a supernatural thriller about a teenager who finds himself trapped between the worlds of the living and the deceased. Nick (Justin Chatwin), is a high school senior with a bright future until, in a tragic case of mistaken identity, he is brutally attacked by a troubled girl, Annie (Margarita Levieva), and his body is left for dead. Now in limbo, not quite dead but invisible to the living, his spirit can only watch as his mother (Academy Award® winner Marcia Gay Harden) and the police search frantically for him, unaware that he is only hours away from truly perishing."
  • I hate it when they falsely perish.

"Major League Baseball career hits leader Peter Rose has reportedly signed a collection of 'confession balls.'"
  • I've never seen him called "Peter" before. The new, dignified Rose?
  • According to the New York Daily News, Rose, who was banished from the sport for gambling on games, signed the inscription "I'm sorry I bet on baseball", on the balls which are expected to become collectors' items.
  • I think I've explained why Pete bet on baseball. He had to do something. When he retired from baseball as the all-time hit leader, one of his teammates said, "I'll betcha a million bucks you get in the Hall of Fame ...?"

The trailer for Climates
  • "Winner of the prestigious Fipresci Award at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival, 'Climates' is internationally acclaimed writer-director Nuri Bilge Ceylan's sublime follow-up to his Cannes multi-award winner 'Distant.' Beautifully drawn and meticulously observed, the film vividly recalls the cinema of Italian master Michelangelo Antonioni with its poetic use of landscape and the incisive, exquisitely visual rendering of loneliness, loss and the often-elusive nature of happiness. During a sweltering summer vacation on the Aegean coast, the relationship between middle-aged professor Isa (played by Ceylan himself) and his younger, television producer girlfriend Bahar (the luminous Ebru Ceylan, Ceylan's real-life wife) brutally implodes. Back in Istanbul that fall, Isa rekindles a torrid affair with a previous lover. But when he learns that Bahar has left the city for a job in the snowy East, he follows her there to win her back. Boasting subtly powerful performances, heart-stoppingly stunning cinematography (Ceylan’s first work in high definition) and densely textured sound design, 'Climates' is the Turkish filmmaker's most gorgeous rumination yet on the fragility and complexity of human relationships."
