Those pesky A's! And they didn't even do us the favor of similarly beating up on the Yankees. Though it was impressive to get to see Manea throw his no-hitter.

The Red Sox were a real class act about the no-hitter.

The A's did actually win the series against the Yankees, or they would have but a safe call at the plate was overturned on review even though there was really no clear way to see that the ump was wrong. :(

That sounds like the Song of Songs.

Bewilder us with cricket
Refresh us with apples...

Her hair is like a flock of goats, moving down the slopes of Gilead.

Also from the Song of Songs, which is Solomon’s. From memory, though.

Thy teeth as a row of the shorn ewes
That have come up from the washing,
For all of them are forming twins,
And a bereaved one is not among them.

Maria would appreciate it, probably.

Her teeth are white, like clean, healthy sheep. And I had the slopes of Gilead bit explained to me as how a big flock of black and brown goats would look from a distance in the sun, kind of shiny.

Song of Solomon is in the Christian Bible, but in my church we don't read from it anymore. Tired of jumping through hoops trying to phrase a somewhat erotic love song as a (rather tortured, to put it mildly) metaphor for Christ's love for the church.

My sheep are multicolored. That's why it didn't make sense. Even when they are newly shorn, you don't want your teeth looking black and brown and grey.
