We're live-blogging this afternoon's Jays-A's game. Join us as we celebrate the life and times of future Hall of Famer and President of the United States Shannon Stewart.

Today's American League game between the Oakland Athletics and Toronto Blue Jays is the most recent baseball game ever played, and is thereby the most important. Please join me at 12:37 Eastern for what we're going to go ahead and refer to as the Shannon Stewart Spectacular.

Please, feel free to join in by adding a comment. I'll try to post as many as yours as I can without gumming up the works. (Hint: if your comment is especially vulgar, it won't be posted.)

If you've hung around for previous live blogs, you know the deal: at some point, we will debate and vote on the most Athletics player of all time. Later, we'll debate who is the most Blue Jays player of all time.

There is also a moderate possibility that we will start talking about couches.
