"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."

Baseball Fever

The World Series started last night. This year we're running a low-grade Baseball Fever because our local team isn't in the running.

Instead of watching Game 1, we chose to re-live the delirium of last year and celebrate the fact that the Boston Red Sox are still--at least until this year's contest is decided--the reigning world champions. We watched Fever Pitch starring Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore.

Now another team has a chance to reverse a decades' old curse. So we'll shout what we shouted a year ago (with apologies to any Astros fans out there):

Go Sox!
