You know what I’m talking about.
As I went to sleep after the Phillies succumbed 3-1, I was reminded of a passage from “Two Tramps in Mudtime” (Robert Frost) – a great description of my feeling as the Series evened to 1-1 …
The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You’re one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
A wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you’re two months back in the middle of March.
Okay, maybe not March – but definitely not May this morning!
What else is happening? Yesterday the USWNT beat Germany 1-0 on a Wambach goal … which is about all I know. Interestingly, the Gates-Crowley Beer Summit appears to have some legs … while we are sad to report that Halloween candy is, apparently, very, very evil. Who knew?
So now I am running late, depressed, bummed about Halloween candy, AND sleep deprived … tough way to end the week.
Come on Phillies, cheer me up tomorrow!
