I’m A Cross Between Chandler + Monica

Another one of those fun quizzes that best describes you as famous person or character. This is the Friends one.

Which Friends Character Are You?

You are part Monica. You have a go-all-out nature. Your friends better watch out, because you play to win. Also, when it comes to order and cleanliness, you’re a bit obsessive compulsive. Your best trait, however, is your thoughtfulness. You go to great lengths to care for your friends.
You are part Chandler. You’re funny and that’s why people like to have you around. You’re also a great friend, and when someone you care about is in trouble, they know to come to you for some level-headed advice followed by some sharp sarcasm.

Funny… I always thought I was more like Ross.

I was right that the Nintendo Wii would be the best-selling next generation gaming console. Now if only HD-DVD would get a move on over Blu ray, I’d be 2 for 2.

Another good article by ESPN’s Peter Gammons. This time he explores managerial experience in the postseason.

He loves Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (stupid name, BTW) manager Mike Scioscia:

To begin with, it’s the style of play. During Scioscia’s first spring training as manager, Shawn Wooten made a baserunning blunder and was thrown out at third base by what Scioscia estimates was “20 feet.” Wooten slinked back toward the dugout, looking for a place to hide, yet Scioscia went up to him and said, “That’s great. Never stop being aggressive. Don’t worry about getting thrown out.” By the manager’s count, it happened to three or four other players that spring, and thus a style, philosophy and courage was born. “No one is afraid here,” Figgins says. “We play a little differently than other teams, but no one’s afraid.”

That situation is always weird. On one hand, you don’t want to make that first out. One the other hand, coaches will always tell you that if you make a baserunning mistake, be sure it’s an aggressive one. I lean toward the latter.

If you’re constantly putting pressure on the defense, chances are the defense will fail because (1) not many teams emphasize defense fundamentals or efficiency all that often and (2) it’s easier to make the other team beat you than you having to beat them.
