The NFL may be getting better ratings than the MLB playoffs, but we live in a world where American Idol is king, so do we really want to equate popularity with merit?
For me? I'll go all hipster and add that we baseball folk have the hipsters on our side. Evidence? Author Dave Eggers went to Game 1 of the World Series at AT&T Park and turned in his sketchbook from the opening game. Check out his sketches at the Bay Citizen .
Really, all joking aside, Eggers' A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius lives up to its name.
