They're letting a 12 year old girl throw out the first pitch to celebrate her pitching a perfect game.

I've gotten a few nice pictures, but the actual finish line is obscured from my building. Ah well.

Blarghy!

What a crappy commute. Not because of the marathon though, because of the damn early Red Sox game! It took me over 1/2 an hour to park at Riverside. From now on I need to check when there's an early game and make sure I get to the parking lot earlier.

Go Orioles!

Marathon

I work right by Copley Plaza and this is apparently where the Boston Marathon ends. Much of the preperation is already done with a block closed to vehicular traffic and a tent set up over the road for the entire block. I'm coming in to work on Monday so that should be an interesting commute.

Yesterday as I was leaving work I passed a spread-out group of people as I walked to the train. They were walking in the opposite direction and obviously in town to compete in the Marathon as they were all wearing running suits. They were clearly a group, though separated, because they were all wearing the same style and color running suit. I immediately thought they were Kenyans because of the wonderful reputation the Kenyan people have for running marathons, but really they could have been from anywhere.

What struck me most was the expression and physical attitude of the man who was in front of the group. Some of the women behind him were chatting with one another and looking about, several others were just looking about. The man in front had the happiest look I'd ever seen on another person's face. An open-mouthed grin, eyes wide as he tried to take in everything at once, arms bent at the elbow so his hands were in front of his chest, below his chin, hands closed, but not tightly. It made me happy just to see his elation.

In the future if I'm ever feeling put out by the inconveniences of the Marathon, I'm just going to remember him and I won't mind any more.

So today is the registration day for the Athol Canoe Race thing.

Superbowl

Even though the Packers weren't in it and the team I did root for ended up losing, it was still one of the most exciting 4th quarters of a Superbowl I've ever seen.

Hmmm

Is it wrong that when I'm watching football I always giggle when they announce the penalty of "illegal touching"?

Penalties

I just watched a drive on Monday Night Football where the team started on the 13 and drove for a td. There were so many penalties that the team covered 112 yards for the TD.

Yesterday I was watching the Packers game on the plane. The big story of the game was Aaron Rodgers succeeding Brett Favre as the starting QB for the Packers.

At one point they listed what happened to the various QBs that replaced legends. They listed a bunch like Namath, Montana, Elway and Marino and the QBs that followed. The announcer, I think it was Ron Jaworski, said

"Each of these situations was unique and this one's no different."

I laughed loud enough that [livejournal.com profile] emilytheslayer heard me over her headphones and asked me what happened.

Sox?

I just got a call from my agency. Next Tuesday night at 7 PM they're taking consultants to a Sox game. Should I go?

Last night I was dreaming of being in a race. It was a science-fictiony, scavenger-hunt race and I was winning handily. Eventually I was winning so easily that my brain evidently decided it was boring and switched to another dream, as though it were an NFL blowout. "We now take you to a more interesting dream already in progress." It was quite odd...

Football

There's a spring league that is now nationwide. Tickets are cheap, $10 per person. While the season is almost over, and I need to remember earlier next year, I might want to go to one of the last games this year. There are games on the 14th.
This is the league, the Independant Woman's Football League. They have teams in the area in Holyoke (Hurricanes), Medway (New England Intensity), Manchester (Freedom) and Somerville (Boston Militia). I think Medway has a home game on the 14th. There's also a team in Hamden, CT (Connecticut Cyclones) (and one in Portland, Maine (S. Maine Rebels), but I mention the CT one 'cause they're playing Holyoke and I'm not sure where as the schedule says @Holyoke, but the Holyoke website says they don't have home games those two dates...)

Anyway, I was thinking we could go to the New England Intensity game on the 14th and maybe next year we could go to some of the games in far off Somerville.

Anyone interested?
