Best Metlike score one could hope for on December 20:

Your University of South Florida Bulls 41

Other Team from Wherever 14

That’s the final in the surprisingly prestigious magicJack St. Petersburg Bowl [1], played Saturday at a briefly reconfigured Tropicana Field — a multipurpose stadium whose purposes are baseball and football, you say? — up the road apiece from old Al Lang Field, where No. 41 (Mr. Seaver) and No. 14 (Mr. Hodges) would prepare themselves and the rest of the world for miracles and numerical immortality.

Good work, beloved if perpetually obscure alma mater. Now bring on Spring Training already yet.
