A Little Baseball

For baseball fans only:

On this day 100 years ago, the Pittsburgh Pirates and Brooklyn Superbas (today the Dodgers) played what the Baseball Reference Bullpen describes as "the most evenly
matched game ever." Both teams used two pitchers, scored eight runs, and recorded 13 hits, two errors, 38 at-bats, five strikeouts, three walks, 13 assists, 27 putouts, one hit batter and one passed ball. The game wasperhaps fittingly called on account of darkness, thus preserving the total deadlock.

It's important to know the difference, but neither one should be in government.

River Trip in One Week

One week from today, I'll be launching my raft on the San Juan river. This makes me very happy, but now I have to get all my gear organized. Where did I put that patch kit?

Today at six minutes and seven seconds after five o'clock it will officially be 05:06:07 8/9/10, which won't happen again until 3010 2110 (edit: corrected, thanks to a commenter. Doubt I'll be around for it, anyway). I believe that is a perfectly good reason for a toast.

A Sunday Funny

For some unclear (sunspots?) reason, my wireless connection is really inconsistent today. It's rather annoying.
