Yanks 2, Boston 0

I know, I know, it's still very early ... but that was fun.

The Bosox tied the game in the 9th inning, and Derek Jeter came up in the bottom of the 9th, the Stadium bathed in spring sunlight, and hit a walk-off home run to win the game for the Yanks, 4-3. Carl Pavano failed to get his first Yankee win, but he had 7Ks in 6 1/3 innings of work.

Okay, I promise not to do this for every game. It's just so good to see baseball again.

Comments welcome.


Liverpool 2 - Juventus 1

(I'm assuming you find European soccer scores about as interesting as I find US baseball scores :-p)


Yes, yes, that's why I promised not to make this a regular blog category. But at least you called it "soccer" rather than "football." :)


Hey Chris, post away on whatever interests you :-) It is your site after all...

As for calling it "soccer", using the term "football" with Americans always leads to mass confusion ;-)

In all seriousness, on the international level "football" often seems to be used as a blanket term that takes in association football (soccer), American football, Aussie football, even rugby etc, so considering the full context I must admit that the British colloquial usage of "football" as a synonym of "soccer" is indeed terribly confusing...

Tell me about it!

At least ~baseball~ is ~baseball~.

In Brooklyn, however, there is an old time game called "stickball," which is like baseball, except it takes place on the streets, where cars and sewers stand in for bases, and a bat shaped like a broom stick (without the broom) is used. Many a classic baseball player in NYC got their start with stickball.
