The game itself was great. Not too many hits, a solid 3-2 game, Danville won over Springfield. The winning run scored from second on a wild pitch, which was awfully exciting. And it's probably those sorts of plays that go a long way towards explaining Springfield's 4-15 record.
In personal news, I'm now completely out of my old apartment. The floors have been mopped/vacuumed, the counters and sinks have been cleaned out. I plan on shampooing the carpets this evening, and then I'll be done. That's a positive. On the negative side of things, I won't have internet at home for at least a month, maybe more like two, two and a half. I've moved into my mom's while she's in France chaperoning a school trip. And she's still using dial up. I think she might be getting broadband soon, but not until she gets back. As slow as dial up is, it's better than nothing, but I still can't use it. The USB modem she has apparently doesn't have any Windows 7 drivers. And no unsecured wireless for me to, uh, commandeer. It's another reason to look forward to moving into the new place when we'll get U-Verse internet. Have I mentioned how excited I am for that?
With all the moving and cat care-taking this weekend, I didn't get to watch too many games. I did watch the Cubs get an all-too-rare win on Friday, though. The Royals are really a pretty decent team, though they've definitely slowed down from a hot start. The future is bright in Kansas City, though. Watch out for them to make a return trip to the playoffs maybe even next year. That would be the first playoff berth since 1985, where they outright stole the World Series from St. Louis. Not that the Royals were a bad team by any stretch, but there's a reason the name Don Denkinger is still famous, especially in Missouri. I also want to clarify that the Royals were a very good team basically up until the strike, they were just the "Always a Bridesmaid" team when it came to postseason play.
Now that the moving has calmed down, there will be some bigger and better blog posts up ahead, more in line with the Marlins post of last week. Those are the sorts of posts I started this blog to write. Now, granted, doing that daily is tough, so I don't know that I can deliver that every day. But I want to deliver that more often than not, and I haven't done that recently. The posts might get done later, but at least until we closer to the wedding, I'm going to really try to churn out more quality pieces.
