And for the last piece of Red Sox-related link goodness, Mike the Internet Guy is willing to trade his search engine optimization services for your tickets to the World Series.

The Guardian Unlimited reports that a man was sentenced to three years in jail after throwing a puppy off an apartment balcony, causing the dog to have to be put to sleep. Seems to me the man should have spent three years getting tossed off a balcony and onto his head. Whatever.

BoingBoing pointed to a great Harper’s Weekly excerpt that confirms what I lknew in my heart as a child growing up on Long Island. Forty-nine percent of New Jersey residents admit they’d rather live somewhere else, probably because it smells like dead cat. CoughRaecough.
