• World Series. New York Yankees 7, Philadelphia Phillies 3. Hideki Matsui tied a World Series record with six RBI, including a two-run homer and a two-run single in his first two at-bats and the Yankees never looked back. The Yankees won their 27th title, Matsui became the first-ever Japanese born player to win MVP of the World Series, and apparently, all is right with the world. Woo. [MLB.com]

• Sure, this is cool, but when is Motel 6 going to build a hotel in space? Architects from Barcelona have announced plans to build a hotel in space and intends to have it open in 2012. To spend a three-night stay at the Galactic Suite Space Resort, it will cost you approximately $4 million which includes an eight-week training course on a tropical island. I imagine the trip to the hotel would be a lot like that scene in 2001: A Space Odyssey, right down to the hip looking space flight attendants. Cool. [Yahoo!/Reuters]
