Sundays usually belong to baseball around late June, but if you didn't watch the World Cup today, I don't know how to talk to you. Incredible theatre. Timeless elegance.

Maybe I can make you appreciate the beautiful game, before our segment is through. Or maybe we can find common ground with homers and steals, middle-relief heroes, rocking rookies and sizzling Rockies. The usual off-the-board topics are welcome, too, as usual; wine, women, song. Mix your cocktail, Flanagan, and meet up at 10:30 pm ET.
