Mish-Mash

I don't get much into politics on this blog, but I consider myself a political junkie. I voted late last week (Early Voting in VA) and am still reading everything I can find on all the hot political issues. I even watched the Obama infomercial last night.

If nothing else, that man can deliver prepared remarks like few ever could.

My other thought everytime I see Obama speak in public? This must have been what it was like when the Beatles came to the US. I have never seen anything like this. He came to the stadium across the water from me. Claire and I thought me might drop in to check out the event...He was not scheduled to speak until 9:30 and the place was packed 5 hours early. Holy cow.

-----

Congratulations to the Philidelphia Phillies for winning the World Series. It is always a bitter-sweet time for me...I am happy to have seen it and always love playoff baseball, but that last pitch means that I will not get any more baseball until next Spring...hurumph.

My proof that the blogging world changes you...As I watched the Phil's win the World Series last night, my very first thought was of this video over at Poop and Boogies. My second thought was wondering how much jumping around was going on at his house...

Obama will be here on Friday morning, and I honestly thought about pulling my boys out of school and going down to his rally, because I believe we're on the cusp of huge change that will be impactful to my kids in the future. He's scheduled to speak in the morning, though, and wow, when I've read about turnouts in other cities, I realized I'd have to camp out the night prior....and, well, that's Trick or Treat night here, so, yeah, candy kind of won out with the kids!

I too am sad that baseball season is officially over. Did you hear about my Garret Anderson? So sad.

Hurry up Spring!

Are you coming to AZ for spring training next year? There's a new Irish Pub that opened across the street from Peoria Sports Complex. We'll buy you a beer. And maybe lunch if we like you in real life and you're not weird or anything. :)

I watched the Phillies win the World Series too. I was worried that the pitcher got squished under the pile of players thought.

I was sad that it was not the Red Sox though. But, then I saw the Phillie Phanatic dancing around and I had to laugh!!!!

My condolences on the end of baseball season - are you gonna wear black for the next couple weeks? Oh, and I was thinking about you the other day and wondering who you were voting for.
