WEEKEND FULL OF SPORTS...

I'm the first to admit I'm not that into sports other than the NBA, so I surprised myself by spending a big part of the weekend as a couch potato and found I'm pretty good at it. Watched UO and OSU football games, Timbers/Sounders soccer and even MLB. Glad to see Boston pull out the win against Detroit. Bit of a nostalgia trip for me remembering my dorm room at Boston U that was on the 12th floor and overlooked Fenway Park. With a good pair of binoculars I could listen on the radio and watch from my desk. I hear PEARL JAM cut a deal with Fox to use their songs during the World Series, so it looks like I'll be watching more baseball this year.
