Waking up to snow here in NH, and the big decision is when to go do the food shopping. (Never is not an option.) Rather than answer that burning question, I just lost myself for @ half an hour noodling around on the web looking for things to write about. I landed amongst a bunch of Phillies’ videos on YouTube – celebrations of the 2008 World Series win, the late Harry Kalas calling the win, stuff about the work Chase Utley and his wife Jen do for the SPCA, etc. But this was my favorite …
Fuck yeah – and here’s to doing it again in 2010! (But first the Eagles …)
That took me to an interview I recently heard on MLB Home Plate with Doug Glanville … former player and now occasional Op Ed Writer for the Times. Of course, I immediately liked him because he had played for the Phillies (it’s nice to be able to simplify one’s likes and dislikes in that way – great time-saver, if you ask me).
The interview was about a piece he had written on Tiger Woods’ downfall – kinda the inside scoop from a pro athlete’s point of view. I was impressed, both with the interview and the op-ed. Gonna keep my eye out for more from Doug … and as the snow falls, I find myself also looking for a good book about baseball. Any suggestions?
Speaking of snow … check out the Wovel instead of a snowblower. We’re on the bandwagon. Who knows, maybe we’ll do a video one of these days – let you see how it’s done!
