If you don't really care about the World Series. I'll give you someone to root for: Freddy Sanchez, short stop 2nd baseman for the San Francisco Giants. Freddy spent the beginning of his major league career and lasted 6 years as a member of my hometown team, the sad sad Pittsburgh Pirates. If you know the plight of the Pittsburgh Pirates, you know that 6 years is like an eternity. However in those 6 depressing years, Freddy managed to win a batting title, become a 2-time All-Star, and above all else, receive the honor of being one of Pittsburgh's most 25 beautiful people by Pittsburgh Magazine. Cool, right?! Go Freddy!

Just recently my friend and colleague, Thien Pham and I had the opportunity to interview one of my favorite cartoonists of all time, Brian Ralph for our comics podcast, The Comix Claptrap. It was really fun. Give it a listen!
