World Series

So, between a particularly busy choral schedule this month and the kitchen renovations, Wonderful Husband and I are starting to run out of steam a little bit. Last night was our first night at home with no other commitments - no rehearsals, no concerts, no pieces of the renovation that absolutely had to get done. Despite the fact that I'm starting to get just a little bit cranky about the state of uncleanliness in the house (pretty much everything, upstairs and down, is covered in plaster dust), we talked ourselves in to having a very quiet evening, sitting on the couch, watching the baseball on TV. It was a very very good choice.

Maternal Unit has a very strong allegiance to Boston, having spent time at Harvard, so I often lean that way too, when the Jays aren't around to cheer for. But this time, I have to say, I can't help but root for the Rockies. I don't think there's anybody out there - no baseball writer, expert, broadcaster, commentator - who predicted that Colorado would be in the World Series, and for that, the team is to be encouraged.

That being said, last night's game was a bit of a bummer.

Hey! last night's game was a nummy delight from beginning to end, what are ya? the best part was the absence of the Retarding Factor that afflicts Coors Field...

I think it's the LACK of a retarding factor that affects Coors Field, but anyway...

My dream someday is to play golf at those higher altitudes, so I can actually out drive my wife.
