Giants Fanatic

Today's Forecast in Hell: Snow Showers

The San Francisco Giants' hard-hitting but notoriously slow-footed catcher Bengie Molina hit a triple in last night's 9-4 defeat of the hated L.A. Dodgers. A hit like that by almost any other player in the Major Leagues would have been an inside-the-park home run. I like how in the clip color commentator Mike Krukow says "I just lost a bet!" I can't see or hear the games up here in Oregon, but I assume that Kruk had made a bet against Bengie hitting a triple this year.

Thanks to gridlore for tipping me off about this.

Prognosis Not Good

Instead of getting better, I'm feeling worse today than yesterday. When we went into Stayton, I picked up high blood-pressure/diabetic-safe cough and cold medicine. For some reason, my health care spending account says that's a permitted expense, while aspirin and Breath-Right strips are not. I had to pay for the latter two things out of pocket and I will get reimbursed later. Annoying, really.

The pharmacy section was all out of surgical face masks. We went and bought particulate masks from the paint section. I wore it while we were out shopping not for my own sake, but so that if I coughed or sneezed, it wouldn't trouble people around me that much.

Right now, however, what I'd like to do is go back to bed.
