Voting. It is what makes the US of A a stupendous place to live.
Some random thoughts below the fold
Walking around the Coliseum yesterday, my wife remarked, "I know this place is a dump, but it isn't going to be the same when it is gone."
Despite evidence to the contrary, (she married me for instance) my wife is a sage woman. Yesterday was a great day to meander about the Coliseum and chat with friends, ushers, random concessionaires... Even if the place wasn't electric, it was comfortable. Like my old pair of Doc Martens that made it through the grunge years with me.
Now two random thoughts that aren't as comfortable:
- I'll take a guy like Nyjer Morgan, who plays hard, over a lot of other MLB players. I watched highlight after highlight of the incidents leading up to the brawl in Florida last week. Most of what the Marlins players were mad about was overblown. He ran over the catcher. Isn't that what you do when he is standing in front of the plate and you are trying to score? I love that after they plunked him, he swiped second. I loved even more that he took third. Don't want him to steal? Don't plunk him.
- Jeff Larish, my new favorite player. I hope he makes the mullet fashionable again.
I love that it's a Sunday in September, the Angels are in town, and the brooms are out. See you at game time.
