Wednesday Rain and Sports Musings


Rainy Day
Today, it is supposed to be another rainy, wet, cool, autumn-like day to close out the summer. 


It rained and stormed last evening and that meant the Orioles game did not start until 9:15 PM. Which is  getting pretty close to my bed time. It was sad, because I had tickets other game, but decided to stay dry at home. 

The Orioles defeated the team from up north whose name shall remain un written and are now just 1game out of the final wild card position. They are hanging around.

The Orioles have sent me the post-season ticket offer! I usually get excited because when the tickets are printed, I have a World Series ticket to look at. So far, I have not had the chance to use it. Sadly. Maybe this year? 

The family conducted its Fantasy Football Draft last evening. That means that the NFL season kick-off is just a few days away--well, tomorrow. I get more teams to cheer for and be frustrated by their on field performance. What a deal!

Go Ravens! 

Because of the weather I am beginning to plan the closing of the pool. I hate closing my pool, but between the leaves falling from the trees into the water and the temperatures being too cool to make me want to swim one last time, I am wondering why I am paying to keep the pool open. 

Sadly. 

Closing the pool is like saying good-bye to summer. Maybe it is time. 

Just like the weather. Summer seems to have escaped and gone away.
