One other distraction was the baseball playoffs. I'm a lifelong Mariners fan and usually when they are "finished" so is my interest in the season. Despite the fact that this may have been the most ghastly season in Mariners history, I watched a lot of playoff baseball. In this year of the pitcher, there were just too many great performances to let it slip away unwatched and unnoticed. I loved the Giants/Rangers matchup and was thrilled to see the Giants finally win it all. Lincecum, Lee, Matt Cain, and Doc Halladay were fun to watch and it was worth the time and trouble to pay some attention.
In any case, I hope to return this blog to our wargaming sponsor-the letter M for miniatures. Until I do, I'll read and listen to Soundgarden or Iggy Pop (my current musical passions,) read a lot and enjoy the Museum of Flight. Stay tuned, we'll return to regular programming soon.
