I got to see Jim Thome hit a homerun into the river on a fence. Then I saw a game winning homerun in the bottom of the 9th and the end of the Pirates 13 game losing streak.
Pittsburgh buses are dumb. Sometimes you pay when you get on the bus, sometimes you pay when you get off. It is some weird tribal custom I think. Bus drivers in this town get snippy if you don't know the code, yinz.
Jack and I kept trying to convince his friends Mike and Emily that a good middle name for their son, due in September, would be Pops - after former Pirate great Willie Stargell. How great would it be to call an infant by the name Pops?
Sometimes Summer Dan writes checks that Regular Dan can't quite cash. But I had to help Jack and Kara celebrate their last night in their house before moving to N.C. tomorrow. Hangovers in Pittsburgh are somewhat cured by watching World Cup action.
Tonight - another Pirates game after watching Italy - Ukraine in an Italian neighborhood. Then it is Jack's last show with his band.
Tomorrow I'm flying to St. Louis to meet Balgavy and Hot Tub Eric.
