Not sure what's the most appropriate threat for this, but posting it here: The epic (and not so epic) mustaches of baseball.

So the Dutch are building an MLB-quality ballpark, and running into some funny obstacles along the way:

Major League Baseball has sent some top consultants to assure that the ballpark meets its specifications. For the pitcher’s mound and batter’s circle, for instance, the league insisted on a special blend of clay, silt and gravel common in American ballparks (Fenway Park seems to have been the model), yet the mix could not be found in Europe.

So the Dutch, not without some grumbling, flew in 200 tons of it from Virginia, and consultants for Major League Baseball installed it. Dutch customs officials at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, totally perplexed by a shipment of that much clay, accompanied the trucks to the building site, apparently to make sure nothing else was concealed inside the neat plastic bundles.

In good sporting news for the Flying Spaghetti Monster, the Pirates beat the Reds in the NL Wild Card Game, 6-2.

And the most entertaining part of the game.

In some ways it's shame that Portsmouth FC aren't called Portsmouth Pirates...mind you judging by their finances over the last few years they'd be a rubbish bunch of plunderers.
