Prof and Scouts are asleep, as they well should be, but here in der Vaterland six hours ahead of you guys I’ve had breakfast (muesli, fruit and yogurt, gut black bread, smoked trout with dill sauce and more really rich German coffe), taken my vitamins, taken a brisk walk across campus and settled back in my room to put the finishing touches on tomorrow’s presentation. So, I thought I’d set up this morning’s HS/SS thread and spare them the trouble, so they could get right to their analysis of the game.
In the only Division Series game of interest last night, the recently commodified Justin Verlander and the Astros put a hurtin’ on Sale and the Beanbags, 8-2. Jose Altuve had a three dinger night.
In the other game, the Borg sleepwalked through a 4-0 loss to the Wahoos. To be fair, I didn’t watch any of it myself. I did so much walking yesterday that by eleven o’clock Mainz time I was tired enough to fall asleep even without watching a ballgame with Cleveland in it, which I consider the most effective tranquilizer you can buy with a cable subscription: trypanosome-free sleeping sickness. To be fair yet again, I was also pretty worn out from laughing my nates loose at the unfolding Morongate scandal in Washington. I just checked the score this morning and put it up, along with probable cause, where our fearless leaders can continue the narrative. I’ll take a pass. I need to stay awake and finish writing my talk.
Have at it, guys.
