Several years ago, back when Guns 'N Roses song Paradise City was a hot new hit, the Backsliders owner Melinda and her family were out visiting Colorado as they frequently did. Melinda and Bloomington Baseball owner Jay came across a relic, similar to this balloon. The two found it so humorous that the phrase caught on and it became a bit of a running joke. When it came time for the Percell Family Fantasy Baseball League to warrant a blog, the name was an obvious choice for the same reasons as to why the phrase caught the attention of Jay and Melinda.

If you want to see a boring video of Randy Johnson talking about the watch, there's one on youtube. But If you're like me, you'd rather watch this:

I'm in Milwaukee at a Brewers game, but I'm not sure why. I'm routing for the Brewers, so they must be playing the Cubs.
With two outs, Carlos Gomez hits a single, which brings up Ryan Braun. Braun bounces a pitch back to the mound, but the pitcher doesn't get a good grip on the ball. At the precise moment that I snap the camera on my cell phone, Braun is leaping through the air in a superman pose and the pitcher is sliding past him into foul territory. The ball flies away toward the first base coach while Braun's descent brings him an infield single.
Then, immediately, the inning ends entirely too early thanks to my alarm clock.

What an awesome story! Dearborn, Missouri? No way!
Apparently the ticket numbers were randomly generated, so Frank White and Bret Saberhagen don't have to get offended that they were left off the ticket. I guess this doesn't mean that the Royals will win the 2013 World Series either. Even though the Royals connection didn't make the ticket a winner, this is an awesome story.
What do you think a lotto winner in Dearborn, Missouri would buy first? If you said a red Camaro, you're right.
This story wins the offseason. By far.

It's somewhat comforting to know that there is a franchise that is run worse than the Rockies.
. . . and it's also somewhat disturbing.

The new uniforms are a big improvement, but I really don't like how they just decided to leave the synthesizer on demo mode.
Oh well, at least it wasn't as bad as this.

Wow. Doesn't that just fill you with a large number of powerful emotions?

No really. That was actually Barry Zito singing.

If you want a closer look at what you just saw, io9 has a good screencap breakdown.
If you think it was strikingly similar to the trailer of another recent superhero blockbuster, you're probably right.
So when can I pre-purchase my tickets?
