Quote of the day
"When you're a little kid and you're in your backyard, you're taking ... dry swings or pretending that when you're in the mirror ... that you're somebody or whatever, you put yourself in this position. You put yourself in Game 1, Game 7, Championship Series, World Series, stuff like that. That's what you work for. Every mile I've run, my entire life, and every little tubing exercise and sinker I've thrown playing catch, is everything I've done to get to this point. That's great, but we still have more games after Game 1. " -- Texas Rangers game one starter C.J. Wilson
The RIHC draft has begun, and there are no surprises in the first three picks (Durant, LeBron, Chris Paul). From the research that Iíve done, I have yet to see any other top 3, although the order of those three is sometimes different. After that, the various pundits begin to diverge.
Baseball action resumes tonight. The Rangers will need to find a way to win at home, or the A.L. series may not be very interesting.
Iíll be in New York City next Sunday-Wednesday. My trip is unrelated to the baseball series, and New York is one of those cities where the extra activity associated with the playoffs will probably be lost in the normal bustle. Iíll actually be reconnecting with my actuarial roots (and a number of my former actuarial cronies), attending the annual meeting of the Society of Actuaries. As such, Iíll probably skip the blurb for those three days. Maintaining stats and participating in the RIHC draft will be enough fill my spare moments.

Another annual Society of Actuaries meeting, eh? Well, we all know how crazy those get, give me a call if you need some legal advice or bail money, all hours.
