Today is one of those days where I actually have to put on my suit and tie and be a lawyer out in front of a court and God and everyone, so there won’t be any content at least until this afternoon and quite possibly at all depending on how good or bad court goes for me.
Not that even a bad day in court — and they’re all pretty bad — will make this a bad day. This evening I’m taking the kids to their first ever baseball game: the Columbus Clippers vs. the Indianapolis Indians in the Clippers’ new home ballpark. Not sure how I feel about that park yet. On the one hand it was publicly financed, so I should be angry about it, but on the other hand, the team itself is owned by the public — the Franklin County, Ohio government — so at least indirectly the team paid for it itself. Hmmm.
Either way, I am looking forward to seeing what my kids make of live baseball. Odds favor demands to go home not long after the hot dogs are consumed and that weird seal that the Clippers call a mascot scares the tuna salad out of them. Which is fine. Neither Rome nor my baseball habit was built in a day, so I can’t expect my kids to be into it instantly. Besides, on Saturday I’m going to Cincinnati for the Reds-Braves, this time without the kids, so there’s going to be much baseball regardless.
Maybe see you later this afternoon, but if not, have a swell weekend.
