I'm Back, Somewhat Late . . . and Venting

New, comments

Apologies to everyone, and most expecially Stros Bro, for not resuming my normal duties 'round here Friday night.  

Though I wanted nothing more than to check out the Friday night fight between Peavy and Woody, alas, it was not in the cards.

Our flight out of New York's entirely overtaxed LaGuardia airport was scheduled for 3:30 in the afternoon; but due to weather and probably some other factors, we finally boarded at about 6:00.  Then we sat on the tarmac for another 2-1/2 hours, finally taking off about 8:30 at night.

Once on the ground in FTL, what with finding the valet stand, having to watch while the valet stand jumpstarted my car, then rushing to the gas station as my gastank showed below E, I wasn't even home until after Woody had shocked the baseball world, more or less, by taking the win over Peavy.

That's when I turned on my computer and got the Blue Screen of Death.  

That's why I didn't blog yesterday, because I had to rebuild Drayton (my lovingly named server computer) from the motherboard up, and then had to do a fresh install of Windows.

I began work at about 10 AM, and will admit that I had internet again by the start of the game, but I was kind of beat, so after a few more software installs, I simply sat down and watched the game on TV from about the fifth inning.

I'm still not sure what's up with Carlos and Roy, that's next on my list, to find out.

So anyway, sorry for the tardiness, sorry for the kvetching, but I've had a brutal last couple days . . . even while the club has done alright.

I'll be updating some of the features onsite that had been suspended when I left, and will be posting a Game Hero from last night and then a Game Thread later today.

I also hope to get to the Yankee Stadium pictures I promised bwhite.

Thanks, as always, for reading.
