my Sunday feeling

Been lumpy today. Slept in, then watched Old Timers Day, and now watching the regular game. There's nothing quite so amazing as the Yankees' OTD. Seeing the likes of Whitey Ford and Bobby Richardson and Moose Skowron and Yogi Berra alongside Yankees I grew up watching like Reggie Jackson and Ron Guidry and Bucky Dent and Graig Nettles to more recent greats like Dwight Gooden and Mike Mussina and Joe Girardi and David Cone.

Probably the most impressive moment was seeing 60-year-old Mickey Rivers stretch a single into a double with a burst of speed after rounding first. Half the current players don't run that fast... *laughs*

Some of the interviews were fun, too, but my favorite was Ken Griffey Sr., who was a pip.

Now I'm watching Joba Chamberlain pitch one of his best starts of the year. Sadly, Edwin Jackson is doing likewise for the Tigers, and it's tied 1-1, with both teams having a solo homer and nought else.

Off to the forebearance for dinner tonight, and need to do more work on Spectres....

Edited to add: Mark Teixeira just crushed a shot to right to make it 2-1 Yanks.
