One Last Fling This Season

On the spur of the moment, I decided to buy a ticket to Wednesday night's Giants game. It's the last home game of the season, and the Giants were out of contention by the All-Star break, but hey, they're trying to do their job as "spoiler," (so it's not like they're sleepwalking through these games) and there is a chance, if his injured toe relents sufficiently to let him hobble on to the field to play for an inning or so, that I'll get to see Barry Bonds play his final home game as a Giant -- or possibly ever, if he can't find anyone willing to pay what he wants to be paid for next season.

(Actually, I think some AL team will fork over the money for Bonds as a DH to play out the string.)
