1. I missed the beginning of last night's Yankees/Sox game, but for a good reason - Kath's dad was in town and we ended up discovering this absolutely fantastic Italian place up on Ditmars; I forsee us going there many, many times in the future. I love my neighborhood, and I don't know it nearly well enough; I'm continually pleased by what we discover out here. All you Brooklynites have no idea what you're missing, so let me just say: bigger apartments / lower rents / better food / better subways. The end.

2. I did get home in time to see The Captain come through in the 8th. That was an epic at-bat; there was one point where Jeter had 2 strikes, Fenway was going crazy, and I was absolutely positive that Schilling was going to strike him out - Jeter ended up fouling two tough pitches, and so Fenway's energy subsided somewhat, and then BLAMMO - over the Monster.

3. The AVClub has a great feature up today: 18 Reasons Why 1997 Might Be the Next 1967. Personally, I'd always been of the opinion that 1989 was one of the greatest years in music history, but this feature makes a pretty compelling case for 1997. Which, incidentally, was 10 years ago, and now I feel INCREDIBLY OLD.
