Some serious lightning is delaying the start of the game Brett Favre says he'll be "lights out". OK Brett, but it wasn't a slow week in the sports pages here in NY - Yankees ALDS began (and ended) vs. the Twins; hockey season kicked off (the Islanders are 1-0-1); the Giants proved to the rest of the league that they're for real; and Brett Favre still managed to hog the headlines.
Watching the Giants/Braves on TBS - thank God Chip Caray isn't doing these games. He was one of the worst in the business. Along with Joe Morgan.
SNL just did a skit on NBC Sunday Night Football - pretty funny stuff. Check it out here: SNL's NBC Sunday Night Football.
Now I have to figure out where to get a MetroCard at 9:00pm on Columbus Day so that we can ride the bus into the city tomorrow. I may have to wake up and take a stroll early in the morning. Probably going to get a little lift in anyway, try to make myself feel a little better.
The day off today was a real nice treat - seems like days off don't really exist because there is always something else going on - sporting events, outside groups coming in - and I really never have a day off. Today was the first day since school started that I didn't have to do a thing related to work. Outstanding.
Getting a little hot in here, lightning is still striking outside. Going to try to get a few more photos and then hit the hay. First, I gotta take the little guy out so he don't pee in the apartment. Dodging bolts.
Speaking of bolts, the OAKLAND RAIDERS beat the Chargers for the first time in seven years. The Raiders are a respectable 2-3, but have to travel to nearby San Fran to take on the hapless 49ers. Looks like a trap game to me. Hell, 2-3 ain't bad - took them 6 weeks to get W #2 last year. Looks like there's some improvement going on in Raider Nation.
