1:20: The Panic Meter.
* The Overreaction.
* The Overreaction to the Overreaction.
* The Cubs have more elements than the periodic table.

26:10: Save The Intentional Walk!
* One of the game's great dramas!
* Fangraphs: On The Shrinking Strike Zone And Lengthening Games.

* I mis-inferred. Carmelo Anthony chose the money and New York instead of, purportedly to parochial Bulls pundits, a chance to win and Chicago.
52:21: Golden Slumbers.
* Golden Thunder.
* Cavs, Raptors.
55:18: Sharks vs. Penguins.
1:01:46: Chicago Fire Still Owned By Bad Man.
