There is actual news! From an actual news source! Technically speaking since I have Mondays off, I could make this game. I might give it a shot, depending on the weather and I don’t have a Mariners game scheduled that night, so it would be worth the trip. I’ve never been to a college ball game, and think it would be good for me to go. It would certainly be interesting to see the college level of play, and I didn’t get up there near as often as I should have last year.

Meanwhile, I was fortunate enough in my post-game morning adventures to have some time to listen to Brock and Salk on ESPN. They talked to Shannon Drayer about the Mariners Japanese foibles, and a little bit about what was ahead. I am still reserving judgement. I think that throwing a bunch of people – no matter how professional – into such a tight schedule is not the best recipe for winning, but I’m not accepting that as a total excuse. It’s not as if being in a different country has suddenly changed the game, its rules, or our players ability to play. I can only hope that they fare better against opponents that they are familiar with Wednesday morning. The Oakland A’s did not seem to have as much trouble with either the Tigers or the Giants, beating the Giants in a 5-run shutout. I guess we’ll see what we see. Whatever the case, I’m getting ready for bed now in hopes that I can keep my awful sleep schedule up into the next two days. Will be coming back Wednesday morning with photos and a post. Until then…
