Whacked | 08/20/09
Chris whacked me in the neck with the ball during his drubbing of me in racquetball yesterday. Although I was competitive, I wasn't competitive enough to even win a single game. There were no wall-grabbing shots, no half-floor/half-wall scooters, and no ricochets off the little glass box that holds our keys. There was only him outplaying the hell out of me. It's been a while since I felt like I really got crushed. I guess I can reset the timer to 24 hours ago.
The new season of Dexter came in the mail so I watched a couple episodes of it between churning out work. I like this season--I like Miguel (he was also Matthew Santos on West Wing) as the ADA. I'm sure I'm not the only one wondering if Dexter is going to kill him. I would have to assume so since that's kind of the point of the show.
The Cubs are absolutely horrible and even though my former favorite player (MARMOL) is the new closer, I doubt it will make any difference. Barring a miracle they're not going to make the playoffs. There are worse things but it's always nice to see the Cubbies make it (and then get swept in the first round). On the bright side, college football is starting soon and it looks like there are a good number of Miami's players that are either hurt or in jail that could miss the game against FSU. Hooray!
