Kris Kristofferson sang a song, “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down.” I’m listening to it now. Soft, sad and sweet.
Shredded wheat for breakfast. Heading to the mall to pick up my suit. Moving kind of slow this morning. Long night.
I didn’t think they’d play last night. Great, great game. Last night is why I love baseball. I just wish the people who ran the sport and the televising of it loved it like those who blogged with me last night.
That’s a game everybody should have seen. Too bad much of the country missed it. You have to know there were those who flipped on FOX and flipped it off after seeing a sit-com. Others watched college football. Others just went to sleep. The World Series is your showcase event and people miss it.
I’ll be watching tonight, but before I’ll watch Giants-Steelers.
If there’s anything on your mind before then, here’s your message board. Talk soon. Later, JD.
It has to be a good morning somewhere. Boston, perhaps? Gotta think they didn’t get much sleep in Tampa last night. If you’re the Rays you have to be a little concerned. The Red Sox have come back before.
Twice they’ve been down 3-to-1 (including 3-0 to the Yankees in 2004) and rallied. This is a team with a backbone. And, with Jon Lester pitching tonight, you have to like their chances. The decision to go to the bullpen instead of giving Scott Kazmir a shot to work out of trouble could be the turning point to the series.
Of course, I’ll blog the game with you tonight. I’ll also have a post up at 1 p.m., for those watching football.
For those of you on the West Coast, or can’t sleep, this thread is for you. Let’s have your thoughts on where you thought the season might have turned, the playoffs, the free-agents you fancy, or anything else on your mind.
The Internet has made it easy to follow the Mets from any where at anytime. If you’re on the West Coast, like poster Patrick, you’re probably ready to talk Mets while most of us in the East Coast are calling it a night.
Not anymore. I will run this post for awhile, hopefully to find out how many friends I have from the West Coast. Ask questions and make your comments, and I’ll answer them in the morning. If it turns out there’s a lot of you out there, I’ll do a midnight Mets Chat Room.
Of course, if you’re on the East Coast and can’t sleep, which happens to almost nightly, I hope you jump in also.
