Come celebrate Festivus with some baseball-themed Feats of Strength and Airing of Grievances

As the holiday season comes into full swing, it is important that we not neglect new holidays. Most widely known among new winter holidays is Festivus -- an alternative celebration created by Frank Costanza in "Seinfeld" as a retreat from consumerism. Of course, Jerry Seinfeld is himself a huge baseball fan, necessitating a blending of Festivus and baseball.

So, come gather 'round the Festivus Pole and settle in for some Feats of Strength and an Airing of Grievances, baseball style:

Gather around the aluminum pole ... Festivus is upon us.

As Costanza discovered many years ago in the midst of a violent toy store encounter, there truly was a better way. By combining baseball and Festivus, there may be an even better way.
