Solution: Vox Populi, Vox Dei

Well, that about clears it out in here ladies and gentlemen. Here's how yesterday's puzzle broke down. Starting with the familiar quote from Vin, and changing the letters as instructed, one moves from page to page, each starting and ending with a familiar quote.

"A very pleasant good evening to you, wherever you may be." (Vin Scully) becomes "Baseball is only dull to dull minds" (Red Barber) becomes "I led the league in go get 'em next time." (Bob Uecker) becomes "It could be. It might be. It is! A home run!" (Harry Caray) becomes "I went through baseball as a player to be named later" (Joe Garagiola) becomes "...behind the bag, it gets by Buckner!" (Vin Scully)

The second Scully quote becomes an instruction. "Tinyurl. Use the first letter of each last name."

The quotes run Scully, Barber, Uecker, Caray, Garagiola, Scully, so the resulting URL is http://tinyurl.com/sbucgs, which takes you to Don Drysdale's Baseball Reference page.

It has been a wild ride with you guys, though I'm looking forward to a offseason to replenish the contents of my cranium.

Sadly, the victory parade has been canceled due to a slow economic quarter, but the board of directors has graciously agreed to provide a small token of gratitude to the victor for his efforts, to be announced shortly.

Sweet! I solved it and moved from the 10 range to the...10 range. *does a half-hearted dance*

I haven't updated the sidebar yet. You definitely gained a few spots, Dusty.
