The day has arrived, as the Phillies square off with the Yankees in pursuit of a back-to-back MLB Championship. They can do it, I am confident. (And just in case they need any help, I am sure all Phillies Phans out there will be superstitiously pursuing all sorts of ritualized behaviors to help carry off the win for the good guys.) I believe that Yankees’ fans are too sophisticated and cocky to indulge in such activities, which will be their downfall. (Or is that downphall?)
In other news, I see that the BHS girls’ soccer team won their first tournament game (yesterday over White Mountain) and face off against Hopkinton on Friday. (The Gilford girls lost their opening match-up and are out of the tournament … an unusual (character-building) ending for that squad. The Red Raiders team is trying to recreat the glory days of the 2005 State Championship season … good luck ladies – you are off to a great start!
On the political front, how irksome is Joe Lieberman? Really! Self righteous twit – I wonder who is lining his pockets.
“Is the heavy concentration of the insurance industry in Connecticut influencing his vote?
“It has nothing to do with it,” he said.
Yeah, Joe … and we should believe you because … ?
Did I say self righteous twit already? It feels good.
