Today and tomorrow

Well, I'm home. I'm thankful to have had an uneventful return trip. But today has been a very hectic and busy day getting myself reorganized--or rather, that is, beginning to get myself reorganized. So, no time for blogging today, although I plan to post tomorrow.

By the way, on the plane back to Logan they showed the movie "Fever Pitch," supposedly a light and entertaining comedy about a rabid Red Sox fan. Being a fan myself--although I plan to take the next few decades off, now that they've finally won the Series--I thought I'd like it. Unfortunately, though, it was lame, unconvincing, and pretty unfunny (unless they cut all the good parts to give it that G rating). Ah, well.

Same movie we saw returning from SF (on Delta) a few weeks ago. My expectations were soooo low that the movie actually surprised me on the upside... meaning that it evoked a mild almost smile a time or two.

The original "Fever Pitch" is a great movie. The cover of the DVD looks like a cheap 80's flick, but the movie it worth renting.

Forget the movie - the book by Nick Hornby is fantastic. It's a funny, insightful, and sometimes touching memoir of his own lifelong obsession of the Arsenal soccer team. This is the book sports fans give to non-sports fans to explain (justify? apologize for?) their dementia.
