A. Today, we figured out how to hook up the pitching machine to a generator for batting practice. It was cool, even though I had to buy a $30 extension cord at Home Depot to do it. The kids are tired, though - playing three games in four days in this weather will do it to ya, I guess. Big game Friday night, then we have one of our chief rivals on Monday (they beat us twice last year in a doubleheader sweep). I feel like this is a killer schedule.
B. Does anyone have any insight into whether or not I should bother fighting a $100 red light ticket in Washington DC? I got one in the mail the other day, and it really sucks. I don't even remember being in that blasted city in February. One way you can get out of it is to say someone else was driving - but you have to provide their name, address, and driver's license number. After reading that, I'm embarassed to say that I have been racking my brain for a dead relative from whom I might be able to obtain a driver's license number. No such luck, however.
C. I'm somewhat anxious because the Baltimore Sun Spring Sports Preview is out tomorrow (I believe) and want to hear what they have to say about the 11-5 season we put together last year. Probably another year without a mention, I guess. Maybe it's best to be a snake in the grass.
D. I'm hoping to do some serious drinking tomorrow night.
E. After listening to two separate features on Andre Braugher today on NPR - including one in the afternoon that featured a lengthy clip from what sounds like an enthralling episode of Homicide - as well as reading an article about him and the new show in today's Baltimore Sun, I'm actually regretting not having cable right now so I might be able to watch that new show of his. I wish network TV would put on stuff that sounds as good as Thief does. I was going to get into that new Love Monkey show a few weeks back, but they cancelled it after three episodes, and there's nothing else I want to watch on network TV right now.
