11/13/1958:

Preliminary plans for the Continental League, a potential third Major League, are announced. The league proposed new teams in New York, Toronto, Houston, Denver, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Buffalo, Dallas-Ft. Worth, and Atlanta. MLB responded by adding 10 expansion teams over the next 11 seasons, ending the league's chances of success.

The fans have spoken: There's no crying! There's no crying in baseball! 

And thanks to a furious rally by baseball-themed wedding partisans and baseball-themed funeral detractors, the results flipped... it's now okay to provide Cracker-Jacks to your wedding guests, but inappropriate to use Mets logos on your coffin.

Last week's results, and this week's candidates: http://j.mp/TbGg9L

It's the first Saturday without meaningful ballgames since March 31. What are you doing to pass the time?

Baseball-themed weddings? 55.6% foul. Baseball-themed funerals? 57.1% fair. Moral of the story: if you're going to include baseball in your major life event, you'd better not be around to enjoy it.
