It was a great weekend in baseball for milestones, we hear. Alas, we did not have the good fortune of witnessing any of them, for we were
dragged invited to a Dave Matthews concert in Hartford on Saturday, and despite no longer being in high school, we obliged and went along. (Hey, it wasn't all that bad!) We did not get back in front of a TV until 2 a.m., sadly, when we watched on SportsCenter a very bizarre Barry Bonds' post-game press conference, where he spoke glowingly about Hank Aaron, Alex Rodriguez, and Tom Glavine; it may have been the cerebral, but for at least that moment, he came across as a pretty gracious fellow.
Anyway, we were back in our apartment last night, in time to see a few innings of the Mets/Cubs game. It was the bottom of the 7th and it looked like the Mets' bullpen was about to blow the game for Glavine -- you could feel the tension! Glavine's soaw wife couldn't sit still! -- but Aaron Heilman (we think) slammed the door on all that, and then Mets went on to cruise to a 8-3 win. So we offer our congratulations to Glavine, and all that.
