7:16 a.m. Pretends to be asleep when Rakes wakes up, causing Angie to get out of bed to get him.
7:43 a.m. KEEPS pretending to be asleep when Trot wakes up, once again causing Ang to go upstairs and get the boy.
8:12 a.m. Finally gets up when Ciera does because Rakes has soccer practice at 9:00a.m.
9:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. Takes Rakes to soccer practice. Laughs nonstop the whole time at ten 3 year olds practicing kicking. Reminds self that at this age there is no goalie, and laughs some more. I also took Rakes to play on the playground for 20 minutes after practice, since I'm a sucker for a 3 year old asking if "me tould do play on dat playground for a dittle bit, Dad."
11:00 a.m. to 12:25 p.m. Takes Ciera to cheerleading practice, where I spent the whole time alternating between watching her and reading my SI 2007 NFL preview issue, silently hoping candaon from SG would ask me to be his "assistant to the general manager."
12:30 p.m. to 1:07 p.m. Ate lunch.
1:15 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Takes the dervishes to the pool.
2:45 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. While the boys napped, watched Gordon Ramsay's "Kitchen Nightmares" online: I have no idea why I'm obsessed with a foul mouthed Englishman who cooks. I just am.
4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. I honestly can't recall it all: I remember many threats of punishment, throwing of baseballs, and sword fighting, and that's about it.
7:00 p.m. to 10:15 p.m. Watched Clay Buchholtz, in only his second MLB start, pitch a no hitter: Yep, at the ripe old age of 23, Clay Freaking Buchholtz pitched a NO HITTER against the O's. And I got to see it.
A 5 game lead, a no hitter by a wet behind the ears rookie, and a 10-0 win over the Orioles on a day the Yankees beat the Devil Rays.
And it's still a 5 game lead.
If this isn't a sign for the post season, I don't know what is.
