The Baseball Desert

Forward thinking

Next time I arrange to have dinner with good friends of mine, I'll check that it's not on the day the playoffs start! After all my complaining that games generally start at 1am or 4am French time, Major League baseball finally schedules some playogff games at a reasonable hour (first pitch of the Twins / Yankees is in about ten minutes...) and I'm off out to dinner with friends... All I can say is that the food had better be good!!

With a bit of luck, I'll be back in time to see some of the Marlins / Giants game on the West Coast. I'll start practicing tonight's line on the train into Paris: "Waiter - can I get the check, please?"...
