Jon Crispin's Notebook

This and That

We went to see the Sox last night and it was a very interesting evening.  A make-up day game was scheduled for 1 pm.  It started raining in the bottom of the 5th so it was delayed for three hours.  Out tickets were for 7 pm but due to the delay, the Sox allowed anyone with a ticket for the night game to watch the end of the first game which restarted at around 6.00.  Kind of confusing, I know, but we went in, watched them win the early one, cleared out of the park, came back in and watched ours start at 8.00.  The Sox led 1-0 until the top of the ninth when the Rays tied it up on a solo home run.  Jonny Gomes hit a walk off in the bottom of the ninth to win it.  It was a beautiful evening and the rain held off until the drive home.

This morning we drove Peter to New Haven to catch the train back to DC.  We had a great week with him.  The underground walkway to the platforms at the station is a bit outer spacey.

After his train left Cris and I drove to West Haven to walk along the sound and enjoy the beautiful day.  There is a lovely park with a walking/bike path along the beach.  We saw some old guys playing bocce ball and trash talking.  It was very sweet and familiar.  The above view made me a bit sad, as Dave’s Arcade-Carousel must have been very cool when it was still here.  You can tell the original sign just said “Arcade-Carousel” but someone got some stick-on letters to memorialize Dave.  He probably deserves the kind thought.
