The days are getting shorter. The temperature is dropping. The leaves are beginning to change colors. Which can mean only one thing: Mid-September baseball! Now I know that much of the drama has been drained from the pennant race (See the AL Central, AL West and NL Central races for examples). But both the NL and AL East races are still full of excitement, and the NL West, like every year it seems, is a 3-team dead-heat towards the finish line. To top it off, two intense series start tonight; the Braves and Phillies, and the Yankees and Rays.

Tomorrow, the wait finally ends. Football is back and all is well in the world! Thursday, The Minnesota Vikings travel to New Orleans in a rematch of January’s epic NFC Championship Game. To refresh your memory, the Vikings dominated play, but self-induced wounds (fumbles and interceptions) cost them dearly, especially Brett Favre’s inexcusable INT late in the fourth quarter that forced an overtime and eventually sent the Saints to Super Bowl glory.
Tomorrow, the Saints open up the 2010 season as defending champs, while the Vikings seek redemption and revenge for January’s falter.
Check out some pics from that game if your memory is still just a bit fuzzy:
Glorious Victory vs. Agonizing Defeat
