So, the Cubs didn't do so hot yesterday, losing 9-1. And now we get the Giants and Reds coming through town to put us down even further. What a mess this team is turning out to be. I have to say, though, this Pirates-Brewers series intrigues me. But, I don't get either of those teams on TV. Oh well.
In hockey, the Sharks finally did something good in the playoffs, taking game seven from the Red Wings. For those of you not following hockey, you should. And secondly, San Jose had taken the first three games of this series, and looked to have a stranglehold on at least two, if not all three of the next games. And managed to lose all of them. So, like the Canucks before them, the Sharks were facing a pretty humiliating collapse. Thankfully, order was restored, and we get a one-two match up in the west. The East, not so much. A pair of sweeps gave us the fourth-seeded Tampa Bay Lightning against the third-seeded Boston Bruins. That will still be a great series, even without the apparently cursed Capitals. And the Stanley Cup should be great regardless, but I'm sticking by my Vancouver pick.
That's really about all I have for today, I've got some other things I need to take care of. First, I have to make a hotel reservation and call one of my cousins to let them know I'm coming for my uncle Charlie and aunt Dottie's 40th wedding anniversary. I also need to try reinstalling Open Office so I can get wedding invites printed. I had them all designed, but my printer insists they need to be printed landscape, no matter how many times I tell it it's wrong without any hint of being right. And, my home internet being what it is (pilfered), I haven't had any luck downloading it at home. By the way, if you were expecting a Save-the-Date and didn't get one, shoot me an email or message. No offense was intended, and there's a very good chance one was sent, but I didn't have the proper address or it was otherwise lost in the mail.
I'm also thinking about trying to arrange some interviews for the blog, but I need some way to record the calls, and I have no idea how to do that with a cell phone. Any ideas?
And on that note, Happy Friday the 13th.
