Wow! What an amazing story. I’ll add more to this later, just couldn’t wait to get it to you ~

A computer does the MLB schedule now. Until 2005, however, a husband-wife couple did it. By hand. And, apart from being impossibly cute, they are apparently brilliant.

Grantland’s 30 for 30 series meets Henry and Holly Stephenson in this 12 minute short. And it’s brilliant too. And funny. And toward the end, kind of sad.

Just a wonderful mini-documentary. Check it out.
