Okay, the Red Sox are officially going to ruin my year if they don’t come back and win this series against the evil Yankees. Doesn’t America really need a Boston-Houston World Series, the perfect companion to this all-important election, anyhow? C’mon, people — support the Sox!


As previously posted, I left my umbrella at a bar a few weeks back. I haven’t replaced it, thereby ensuring a horrible commute into Manhattan on this pouring, freezing afternoon. But I’m going in to play Halo 2. Could be much, much worse.
