Critical Section

in the company of Giants

Tim Lincecum wins game 5 to clinch the Series for the GiantsTonight I am in Houston, and was working out, and was idly switching channels on the little TV attached to my trainer, and OMG the World Series is on, who knew?  And so I watched the Giants defeat the Rangers and win the Series, 4-1, behind the awesome pitching of Tim Lincecum.  Believe it or not, this was the *first* baseball game I have watched all season - all season! - and it just so happened to be the last game of the year.  Go figure.  Anyway it was great fun and it made for a great workout; I spent 90 minutes on the trainer and burned 1200 calories :)

Peyton Manning leads the Colts past the TexansLater I took a nice walk down to Monarch's, a cool restaurant in the University area of Houston, and while there enjoyed a nice steak and a Trefethen Merlot while watching Indianapolis defeat Houston 30-17 on Monday Night Football.  Peyton Manning was too much for the Texans and that was that.  Just so happened to be the *first* football game I have watched all season - all season! - and it was pretty fun, what with me rooting for the Colts in a Houston restaurant full of Texans' fans.  Made the steak just that little bit tastier.  So be it.

You wake up in the morning, you just *never* know what is going to happen that day :)
