We've fallen behind in reporting on the fledging 2006 media-softball season, but we're determined to make it up to you. First, and most interestingly, High Times has graciously begun providing newsreel-style "Potcasts" of their games. We're duly impressed with the craftsmanship, but, even more than that, we're impressed with the thing's actual existence. We could never motivate to get something like that finished, even if we were sober.

BusinessWeek's less-streaming report is after the jump.

RIVERSIDE PARK — A late-game rally wasn't enough for the Paris Review on Thursday night, as BusinessWeek rocked the highfalutin literary world and won its home opener, 13 to 5.

Dave Purcell pitched a gem on BusinessWeek's newly renovated, all-turf field, keeping the Paris Review hitless through the first three innings. Martin Sanchez and Burt Helm scored a home run each, while veterans Pradeep Varghese, Jonathan Byrne, Jen Girardier, Jan Simmonds, Jay Petrow, Craig Bell, and Jeff Fox all delivered with their usual aggressive, yet courteous, style of play. Promising rookies Kyle Sullivan and Janie Ho also put in solid performances. Brian Hindo hit into a fielder's choice, and did it with dignity. Well played ball!

We hope to see everyone next week when we take on DC Comics. The rest of the sked is below:
