A Marked Dollar Bill

I received a dollar bill that had writing on it recently. Someone had inscribed:

The MLB Regular Season

Between the AL division races and the NL Wildcard traffic jam, the 2012 MLB regular season has been fun to follow. Over the past two weeks the Phillies went on an improbable winning streak to raise their play-off hopes from the dead, then promptly went into Houston and lost 3 of 4 to the worst team in the league, destroying those new hopes. This has been a tough season. I still love the Phillies, and I most definitely love the Phillies. The play-offs would be better with my team in them–but regardless it’s going to be an excellent October for MLB.
