A bit of baseball history could be made

The regular season is just about over, so my beloved future Hall of Famer Greg Maddux won't have many more starts after tonight. If the rumors are true and he's really going to retire at the end of this season, this could be the last time he'll ever face San Francisco. Already one of the best pitchers in baseball history, he needs only one more regular-season victory to move past Roger (boo! hiss!) Clemens to be the 7th winningest pitcher ever.

So tonight is not just another game. I'm so nervous, you'd think I was watching the Cubs! (The Boys in Blue really kinda sucked today, losing 12-6. Cincinnati beat the Brewers, though, so the Cubs' Magic Number is 1.)

Day 19 -- September Fitness Challenge

An apple/blue cheese/blueberry salad, two hard-boiled eggs and yogurt with blueberries on the bottom.

That's protein, calcium, fiber, and vitamin C.

A filling and nutritious way to spend my time stuck here at my desk. I'm waiting to hear from Sears that I can pick up my new DVD player. It's just a few blocks away and I'm hoping I can rush over and get it before I'm missed.
