2:11 AM

It's late and I need to be up in 5 hours. I just got back from game 1 of the American League playoffs between the wonderful Oakland A's and the dastardly evil Boston Red Sox. I am so delirious, but elation fills my soul as the A's won in the bottom of the 12th inning on a bunt. I left to go to the A's game at 5 PM and have returned at 2 AM. 9 hours of my life has been devoted to this wretched sport, where the players make millions and millions, but I can't help it. I've got pennant fever and I've caught it big time. I need to be up early so I can work a few hours and then I'm off to Oakland to see game 2 which starts at 1 PM. The drive is so long, but it's worth it. Hopefully traffic won't be to bad. I'm pretty delirious, but wanted to write something about the game. Hip Hip Hooray!! Go A'S.
peace always,
Mike Park
