Well, I did it - I walked to the bus and rode to Angels Stadium to watch the Angels play the Tigers.

So how did the grand experiment work out? Very well.

The walking - to and from the bus stop (both from home and the stadium) was comfortable. I chatted with some very nice people as I left the bus both times: one was a fellow Angels fan and another was a nice Latina from my neighborhood who just wanted a little conversation. Since my seat was in the sun for most of the game, I wound up sitting a few rows higher in the shade. And the Angels won, which always helps make for a nice game.

The only lowlights were once I got home. I didn't put enough sunscreen on my legs, so I have sunburns on both my shins (I wore my cargo shorts to the game). My right knee was a little achy (it's just fine today). And I was exhausted enough to take a nap in the early afternoon.

I will most likely do this again when I attend my next game...and if it's an afternoon game I'll use more sunscreen.


The temperature will be jumping this weekend - up into the low 100s.

The fans are on, and the water dish reservoir will stay full.

We'll all be all right.


From the Sometimes I Hate It When I'm Right Dept.:

Guess who wants the health care bill passed in honor of Saint Ted Kennedy.

Just remember - we DON'T get Kennedy's plan.


Burt Prelutsky got the following e-mail that I think sums up Obama's health plan perfectly:

"Let me get this straight. We're going to pass a health care plan written by a committee whose head said he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that didn't read it but exempts them from abiding by it, signed by a President who smokes and is also exempted, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that's nearly broke. What could possibly go wrong?"


From the guy who brought you the "Sphere" room escape game comes a new one - Lights.

This one involves math, a mini-LCD game, and a live dog.

Oh, and there are two exits. Can you find both?


The new part for the bowling game has arrived, so I need to get in to work.

Be seeing you.
