damn timing

Trina Hamlin is playing Club Passim tomorrow night, and I scheduled a party for then! D'oh!

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.

and then it happened again when the Twins beat the Braves in the 1991 World Series. :)

so would you have been incredibly torn if it were the twins vs. redsox in the Series?

Well, they couldn't be in the World Series together, but if it had been them in the ALCS... I think I would have made popcorn, sat back, and watched what happened.

I can't tell if my desire to stand out in a crowd would win out over my joy at the fact this home team is so beloved...

I wonder what it says about me that how I react would depend on how I wanted to interact with the crowd I'm watching with. But really, that's all sports is, a big fake abstraction to base group distinctions on.

Or something. I should develop this line of thinking futher some other time...
