Today's title comes from the stark and crushing Bruce Springsteen song "Highway Patrolman," off the Nebraska album, which is essentially just The Man kicking the crap out of John Q. Public, set to music. Not sure what it says about me that it is my favorite Springsteen record.

A.J. faces off against Zack Miner today in the second game of the series, and the Jays look to stay above .500. Let's go Jays!
