Good News on the Homefront | 09/26/07
Yesterday I found out my thesis was officially ready to be passed on to my committee. Awesome. I celebrated by playing two games of football with Chris. In our "experimental" first game (calling all plays we'd never called) I won but in our second "real" game, he pulled out a last-second win with 0:06 left despite having that time left with 80 yards between him and the end zone. Chris has the Playstation pass figured out--the magic touch that can have the QB throw it with the right "touch". I still do not have that despite playing for almost a month on the weekends now. I can whip 'em in there but that can (and does) end up as an interception. One day I'll get you Chris.
The heat is on in the National League with only 4/5 games left. The Cubs have the "safest" lead of 2 games on the Brewers. The Mets have collapsed and the Phillies have been hot. In the NL West I'm pulling for the Rockies because they seem to be the short-term version of the Cubs (but with a tiny payroll and fans that don't care). It should be an interesting couple of days since they Cubs have already lost two in a row to the hated Marlins. A couple more losses and they'll be watching the playoffs...again.
