Roadkill

Shea?

Chipper Jones named his new son "Shea," after Shea Stadium, a place where Chipper is is consistently and vociferously booed every time he comes to the plate. The only person who was booed more loudly last time I was there was Mike Stanton (who plays for the Mets, so not so good for Mike). Although I have to admit I'd rather go through life named "Shea" than "Chipper."

Now if we can just get the kid to change his last name to "Guevara."

Wicked

So, I finally finished Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. Collapse )

I've started Jim Bouton's Ball Four. It's been a couple of decades since I last read it. My original copy is long gone, loaned to someone who never returned it. Last year I picked up a new edition containing a lot of extra material. More later.
