Behold: Max Scherzer’s goggles

We noted this last year when he sported the same eyewear, but this doesn’t stop tickling me. Last night Tigers starter Max Scherzer — who has Heterochromia iridum (i.e.  two different eye colors) — rocked some appropriate goggles in the Tigers AL Central-clinching celebration. From my TV to you:

And yes, because the couple of you who actually saw “Wayne’s World 2” are already thinking it:

If there is an ALCS Game 7, Ric Flair will call out “Play Ball!”

I don’t really care who wins the ALCS, but part of me wants to see it go seven games now. Why? Because if the Astros win tonight and force a Game 7, the series will be visited by a Rolex-wearin,’ kiss-stealin,’ wheelin-dealin,’ limousine ridin,’ jet flyin,’ son of a gun, jack! From the Chronicle:

The Astros-Yankees American League Championship Series gets to a Game 7, the Astros will have pro wrestling superstar Ric Flair call out “Play Ball!” before the game in a video message. Astros right fielder Josh Reddick is a huge wrestling fan and uses Flair’s entrance music every time he steps to the plate at Minute Maid Park. Fans also have adopted the wrestler’s “Woo!” yell throughout the season.

That’s pretty cool. It’d be even cooler if it ended with a Dusty Finish.
