Hobbits and Baseball - What's Not To Love?

Regular friend-o-the-llamas ChrisN sends along a linkie to a fantastic NY Times correction.

The mistake seems to have been made originally by Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey, which is about what you would expect, but as ChrisN says, you'd think the Grey Lady would know better. (Next they'll be saying that Glamdring was carried by Gwaihir the Windlord!)

Oh, speaking of linkies, thankee to all of you who sent along the LlamaFont thingie, including most recently the lovely and talented Sarah G. I would have posted a suitable response using said font, but I can't figure out how to cut n' paste it. Yip! Yip!

Turned out to be a nail-biter of a game, dinnit?

I missed most of it, since I was still at the office working my 9-to-5 gubmint job (that's 9AM to 5AM, it seems). Disappointing that the Braves gave up so many unearned runs - to this point, the defense had been much better than last year. But it's nice to see that they have the same fight under Freddy G. that they had under Cox.

The biggest loss may not be the game, but Jason Heyward - he had to come out of the game late with a shoulder injury, and he's having an MRI this afternoon. Could be nothing... or it could shut him down for the year.
