Here is what I have concluded about October baseball:
CLE @ BOS
NYY @ LAA
MIL @ NYM
AZ @ PHI
Boston, New York Yankees, Milwaukee, and Arizona advance
(AZ advances on 3 consecutive walkoffs by Eric Byrnes; Boston advances because the Indians suck)
NYY vs. BOS — New York wins in 5 (Boston can win the opener to create tension for a day)
MIL vs. AZ — Milwaukee wins in 7 (Byrnes can’t beat the immense coolness of Prince Fielder)
World Series 2007:
New York Yankees vs. Milwaukee Brewers — New York wins in 7 (I’m all for getting Milwaukee fans’ hopes up by letting them win the first three games)
I recently discovered that Ogden Nash is somewhat of a sav. His style of poetry is not unlike Billy Collins’; this must be why I like it so much. It’s humorous and pointless, down-to-earth and completely random. If not for Tim Lincecum, I’d be in love all over again.
This week has been insane. Monday was better than most Mondays, I think… I don’t remember exactly why, but I don’t recall feeling lethargic or crabby after school. The boys had water polo on Tuesday, so the girls’ team (a.k.a. me, Eva, Danielle, and Shirley) went to go support them and such. Wednesday and Thursday we got to play (we lost 8-0 on Wednesday); it was not terrible, nor a waste of time.
I’m struggling my way through the arrangement of Schindler’s List that I have for piano — it is also not terrible, nor a waste of time.
No football tonight; maybe I’ll do homework instead. A terrible waste of time if I ever saw one.
