As I'm writing this, the Phillies are going into the 9th inning, leading the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2. A good sign.
Last week I finished reading Mage-Guard of Hamor by L.E. Modesitt. I've enjoyed reading all of the books in Modesitt's Recluce Saga, but I think that Mage-Guard and Natural Ordermage are the best so far.
I will offer a classic amusing cultural link: The Viagra Prank (or as I like to call it, Viagra in church). The Phillies are still at bat in the 9th inning in game 1 of the 2008 World Series. Oh, well, you will know what happened by the time you read this.
