I am delighted to report that tonight I successfully watched baseball with Bo, our new baby guinea pig. We watched a great pitchers duel as the Dodgers defeated the Rockies 1-0; this was their last game without Manny, a 50-game span during which they went 29-21 and retained the best record in baseball. Great pitching will trump great hitting every time.
Little Bo seemed to enjoy the game, making chirps at appropriate moments and even sampling a wheat thin or two (he does not appear to like cheese however.) He cannot replace Smokey, our beloved previous pig, who demonstrated a great understanding of the game, but he is doing his best as a relief pig. He is amazingly cute and his cuddly demeanor is perfect for sports-watching. We are of course both anticipating the Tour de France [which starts Saturday] with great interest.
