after the meeting i waited for the 86 bus to take me back into harvard square. it felt so humiliating, because under normal circumstance, i would've taken the motorcycle, and i could've been in 5 minutes instead of waiting almost an hour for the bus to show up. the sky was an explosion of different cloud types.
paid a visit to the garden before coming home. after a shower i made an omelette for a late lunch. in the evening i made some of that filipino pork noodle soup again for dinner.
tonight was the first red sox game with our new left fielder, jason bay. didn't realize it at the time, but his name easily converts to a local nickname, "the bay state." i watched his pre-game interview, guy kind of reminded me of jon olerud, or possibly a papelbon sibling. he had a great game: after a standing ovation, he draw a walk on his first at bat. later in the inning he managed to score a run. then he made an awesome sliding backhand catch in left field to prevent the a's from scoring (a play manny may or may not have made, depending on how he felt that day). the run bay scored turned out to be very important because it was the only run the red sox managed to get before going into extra innings. things came to a head in the 12th, when bay hit a triple, and then jed lowrie knocked him in for the game ending run. manny who?
