Another list! But really, is there anything better to do on a snowy day than read year-end collections? NOPE.

And so, we turn to Jason Gay at The Wall Street Journal. His ninth favorite moment of 2010:

Who picked San Francisco to win the 2010 World Series? You too? We put $4 down last March, and now we own a Bugatti Veyron powered by white truffles! But not even Jerry Garcia’s ghost could have predicted that a team with a wildly eccentric pitching staff and no-name position players could deliver the first Giant title by the Bay. The year’s hairiest, best-smelling victory.

Go read the whole list. It’s excellent.

If there was a top 10 list for “Writers we’re happy to have back on the sports beat,” Mr. Gay would certainly push for the No. 1 slot.
