Default 2012 Magic Number Countdown Thread

Now that the magic number has reached Sesame Street number territory (20 downward), I think the time is appropriate to start the countdown. You can all feel free to crucify me if you think this is too soon or the Sox choke big time down the stretch. Anyway, the magic number is indeed 20.

Does that make Detroit's magic # 26?

I feel like it shouldn't have been that hard for me to figure that out.

Greatest Arsenal goal I have ever witnessed. Chills to this day watching it.

Since the Sesame Street video's chorus clearly copies Alice Cooper, here you go.

No, they were up 5-0 yesterday before holding on. They were up 3-0, and then were down 5-3 before Miguel jacked a 3 run homer.
