I almost thought we were going to have some more late inning magic tonight. After beating the Orioles in their last at-bat the last two nights, the Sox entered the last of the 9th down 9-5 to Baltimore. Three singles loaded the bases (including one by Ellis Burks, after spending nearly the entire season on the disabled list - he got a huge ovation from the Fenway crowd), then Manny came up and hit a single to score Mueller and Guitierrez. Ortiz came up as the potential winning run, but ended the excitement by flying out deep to right.

The Yankees beat Tampa Bay in a makeup of a hurricane delayed game, so the Sox enter the weekend series 4 1/2 games back. They really need a sweep of the Empire to make a serious run at the division title.

Tomorrow is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement and the holiest day on the Jewish calendar. I've never really liked this holiday - too many things remind you of the things you screwed up on over the last year. But I'll be at the synagogue tomorrow night and Saturday.

Next week will be exactly 90 days before our trip to Florida, which means it's time to make our priority seatings at Disney for December. We'll be doing our now traditional dinner at Chef Mickey's with my parents and my brother and his family, of course. Also, we're going to try to sign up the kids for this pirate cruise Disney runs. Basically, you drop the kids off at the Grand Floridian, where they go off in a boat with some Disney Cast Members who take them on a "treasure hunt" around the lake. They get lunch and a bunch of little trinkets, in addition to a pirate hat with Mickey Mouse ears attached. It sounds like fun. A. and I are going to get reservations at Jiko at the Animal Kingdom Lodge for our grown-ups night out this year. The reviews I've seen of the place have been outstanding and we've never been to the Lodge before, so I'd like to check it out.
