We start this week's episode in the cheeriest of moods following Yordan Alvarez's dramatic walk-off home run to give Houston a 1-0 lead in the best of five Divisional Series with Seattle. From there we contemplate whether home field advantage any big advantage at all in baseball, meditate over how much if at all the 5-days rest will effect the four teams that earned byes, and gravitate to the recent Right Said Fred vs. Beyoncé  kerfuffle.

Vanilla Ice released "Ice Ice Baby" in August 1990, which technically is the last year of the 1980's in a way.  Beyoncé's self titled LP was nominated for a Grammy Best Album in 2014, not "Lemonade," which came next.
