and a bit of this and that.
Perhaps not the most important to you, but for this As fan – a solo home run by Chapman in the first inning turned out to be the only score in the game. WIN! The Red Sox don’t quite have it together this year, but I don’t think that is going to last. They certainly out hit the As, but defense and amazing fielding prevented any of those hits from turning into a scoring run. Even more amazing – Laureano once again threw out Bogaerts at third base to rob the Sox of their potential game tying run in the 9th. (FYI – at the wall in center field directly to third without a relay). If Bogaerts had been happy with his double….
In other ramblings – my friend Carmen is touring in Australia and New Zealand. (Did I mention that we were roommates in college?) Even though cruising is great and you can extend networks of friendship around the the world, it doesn’t mean that you get to see as much as if you were on land in some areas of the world. From what I can tell, she is having a great time and has taken some really amazing photos – which you really should look at here.
Yesterday was Monday according to UCHastings. Yes, I know it is Tuesday, but since all Federal/California holidays are celebrated on Monday it would place undue burden on those classes which meet on Mondays. This semester, with the just past holiday (Monday off) we are celebrating by holding Monday classes on Tues. And the normal classes held on Tuesday are just skipped. The good thing? No incredibly long afternoon. The more difficult? Disruption…
Off to sleep….
