Two games...TWO GAMES! Well the Rangers did it in dramatic fashion yesterday. Down two in the bottom of the ninth. Then down one with two outs and only a solitary strike left. Yet a guy who was in a oh-fer-23 slump doubles in the two guys on base, and the Rangers find themselves a mere two games out...TWO GAMES! This occurred as I was driving down Greenville Ave. on my way home from work. So if you saw a guy pumping his fist and yelling wildly while trying to keep it in the lane, that might have been me. Two of my buddies called me before I was even able to get home. One had been at the game(yes I'm in a jealous rage) and sounded quite hoarse. It's hard to be in a bad mood when you got good friends and baseball on your side, and I find myself approaching giddy.
Quickly, on the Kerry front. I see this today in the WashPost about the candidate who is now running on an anti-war platform. I will quote the esteemed Senator from Massachusetts reacting after the "U.N. Security Council had just adopted a resolution against Iraq that was watered down at the behest of the French and the Russians." He said:
"We know we can't count on the French. We know we can't count on the Russians," said Mr. Kerry. "We know that Iraq is a danger to the United States, and we reserve the right to take preemptive action whenever we feel it's in our national interest."
Bush couldn't have said it better himself.
