Sportscenter update

Just like Howard Bashman, I spent Friday night watching live a terrific baseball game between NL East rivals.  Courtesy of a great friend in a high place, I had an amazing seat in the absolute front row at Shea Stadium on the third-base side for Florida Marlins 4, New York Metropolitans 3.  You can access the wraps from MLB.com at this link.

The game had lots of highlights from our seats, including a great view of the visitors returning to the dug-out after each side retired, a beat-out bunt in the Mets only scoring inning, and a flying bat when a Marlins pinch hitter lost his grip.  Unfortunately for those root, root, rooting for the home team, Billy Wagner blew only his second save of the season and so, as the great song goes, the game's result ultimately was a "shame."  But I still had a great time (despite fall-like weather) and was grateful for my host's hospitality.

Meanwhile, as I was traveling to Shea, Tiger Woods almost rewrote another record at the PGA Championship.  It's hard not to have a strong feeling that nobody is going to catch him this weekend.  Of course, I recommend The Golf Blog for coverage.

"Metropolitans!?" I don't think I ever thought about what "Mets" meant. Midwesterner that I am, I guess I thought it had something to do with wurst.
