Edit for factoid that doesn't deserve its own post: the first time I started watching baseball, in 1987, when my Minnesota Twins won the World Series, they were playing the St. Louis Cardinals. And every game in that series was won by the home team. Neat, huh?
And a quick heads-up... in the morning I may decide to cancel the party tomorrow night, in favor of a more relaxing time leading into what may be a tough week at work. I will post and send email by noon if that's the case; so far I have something like four or five positive RSVPs though.
