Baseball on the brain

I was goofing around with CNN’s Paul LaMonica on Friday — he joked that no one wanted to talk about the market ’cause everyone was so whupped from watching the 11 inning ALCS game 7 game between the Yankees and the Sox the night before.

I gave him my Chicago Cubs VIX joke [1], and he used it: Earnings? Economy? Wall Street cared more about balls and strikes than bonds and stocks this week [2].

Funny stuff . . .
