A few thoughts as we wrap up the weekend:
  • Is there a worse baseball name than Taylor Teagarden of the Rangers? He sounds like he should be hosting a show on the Food Network or something.
  • Scary, scary day for the Patriots. Yeah, they beat the Kansas City Chiefs, but nobody really cares about that. Tom Brady went down with a left knee injury in the first quarter and never returned. I'm not trying to restate what is already overwhelmingly obvious, but the Pats aren't going anywhere without Gisele's main squeeze directing the offense. No reports as to Brady's status online yet, as the entire region waits with bated breath.
  • Everyone lost who we needed to lose today - the Rays, Twins,White Sox and Yankees. Sox are 1.5 games behind the Rays going into this week's three game series at Fenway. They are also 6.5 games up in the wild card race. It should be an exciting three days against the Rays this week (I'm still amazed that the Sox have a critical series against Tampa Bay in September).
  • The Yankees lost two out of three to Seattle this weekend? Have they just quit trying?
  • My family has taken up hiking recently. We did two hikes in Vermont (one up Mt. Tom in Woodstock). Today we went over to Walden Pond and hiked around the pond. Everyone had a fun time. I don't think we're going to get big into overnight hikes or anything like that, but 2-3 mile walks into the woods seem to be about our speed.
That's it! Think happy thoughts for Brady's knee.
