During the Jays game tonight, announcer Rod Black decided to talk about the Jays’ remote wild card hopes. The following sequence occurred:

Rod: “Again, the chances are remote because the Jays have so many teams to vault over, and they’re all playing each other. The numbers don’t really play out…”
Me (thinking): Ok, pablum, but fine. Rod’s not reinventing the wheel with that, and maybe Pat (Tabler, the analyst) can get a good response.
Rod: “…You have to be a whiz at Sudoku to figure this out.”
Me: *head explodes*
What does Sudoku have to do with the Jays making the playoffs? Does he have any idea of how to play that game? Why would… how… Guh.
The conclusion: Rod Black makes me angry.
