We were treated to the sweet taste of pennant race baseball last night as 42-year-old Jason Giambi blasted a two-out, pinch-hit, game-winning home run to give the Indians a 5-4 win over the White Sox.

To add insult to injury, as New York continued their late-season fade, Mariano Rivera Bobblehead Day caused chaos in the Bronx.

The good news doesn't stop there, though. Fauria has become Twitter buddies with Joey Fatone!
