"Meanwhile, the first saucer people have reached Earth..."

This is my wallet. It's made of Tyvek. I love this damn thing. I've had it for...eight years now? I don't even remember. Certainly longer than any other wallet I've had, including forays into nylon/velco and stupid eelskin. Though much of this has been because I can't find a replacement. It was a Christmas gift from my uncle, who found it at the gift shop at the Cooper Hewitt Museum. They don't have them any more; no one does. The company that made them, Fun Folds, has vanished. A little more information, and pics of similar Tyvek wallets, can be found here.
Needless to say, if you come across any of these, please let me know where I can get my hands on one. Otherwise, me and VWOOSH! here are together for the long haul.

I'm inching back into the world of fantasy sports after about 10 years out, so go join Mark's Baseball Challenge group and pummel this noob a little, won't you?

The U2 of sports??

This is the first time I've ever based a post on something this person had to say. I don't see me doing it again anytime soon.

The answer to his ridiculous question is quite simple, though. The "winning" entity:

is vastly overrated,

is bewilderingly popular,

has overly defensive fans,

clogs up the airwaves,

is led by a pompous buffoon who's often given a free pass for his humanitarian work

ladies and gentlemen, the U2 of sports...
