Ford's not the only geek around here.

I was out of town over the weekend, and missed out on Lew Ford's stretch of homeruneriffic brilliance against the Mariners. That doesn't mean he was far from my mind, though. One of the activities I engaged in was an impromptu tournament of MLB 2K5, which I only halfheartedly participated in, since I'm not really into baseball video games. At one point, my opponent pulled off some ridiculous move to swing for what seemed to be a free home run to left-center. I had my Virtual Lew follow the play anyway though (because I could imagine Virtual Gardy chewing him out if he didn't), and wonder of wonders, he climbed the wall and snatched that free homer away from the other player. Clearly, the stars were aligned: even Fake Computerized Virtual Lew could do no wrong last weekend.

And the best thing about MLB 2K5? When Ford is at bat, they actually play a sound clip of the crowd chanting "Lewwwwwwww." How great is that?
