TO/TOO/TWO TUESDAY for September 16, 2008

I don't know which I'm more gleeful about--the silly homonym error (the writer should have written affected, dammit!) or how the Houston Astros have been getting their butts kicked by the Cubbies, therefore (hopefully) ending the Astros' quest for the wild card, which means the National League Wild Card fight is really just between the Phillies and the Brew Crew. The fewer competitors the Phillies have in that race, the happier/calmer/less maniacal I am. I want my boys to go to the playoffs this year--I don't care if they sneak past the Mets to take the NL East championship, or if they ace the Brewers out of the Wild Card spot, but goshdarnit, I want to see Hamels and Utley and Dobbs play some playoff games for the second year in a row! Is that too much to ask? Make it happen, Fightin' Phils--make it happen!

They could have used "impacted".

Indeed, they could have. At least they wouldn't have had any chance of a homonym error if they'd used "impacted"! But, alas...*sigh*.
