Yeah, it's no surprise to most that I'd be a bit upset over the outcome of the World Series — that should be obvious to even the most casual observer of this site or, ya know, others. Still, I'm proud of my little Tiger team that could — they went farther than anyone expected. But, while watching the post-game, I did happen to notice that Chevrolet has completely taken over the game of baseball. Above you'll see a quick camera snapshot of the screen as 31-year-old Cardinals shortstop David Eckstein, receives both his MVP trophy and a bright yellow Chevy Corvette Z06. (Kudos to that, I'm sure, need to go to Corvette PRanista Travis Parman — who we've no doubt wheeled that 500+ hp beast onto the field himself.) Yup, the husband of Ashley "That 70's Show" Drane now finally has "my first car I can call my own from the beginning." What the hell's this dude been doing with his paycheck over the past five years — I thought selling out was a prerequisite. Hell, as you can see from the other pic we took below the jump — it's probably a rule in MLB.

iamjames — I know. That's why I took the flash off for the second picture. I was less worried about making sure the flash was off on the first pic, and more worried about finding it and turning it on. But yeah, keep it up with the know-it-all critical commentary, it works wonders. Hey, did we have a commenter execution this week?
