I played hooky and went to get Senator Kerry to sign his book for me:
(Sorry Bev, I didn't ask him about Ohio. His book is of course about the environment, and it would have been in poor taste to say: "Do you ever have second thoughts about not asking for a recount in Cuyahoga County?")
Update (6/7): Claudia Feldman was visibly irritated at having to cover the event.
Then I went to the College World Series at Reckling Park:
Rice spanked Prairie View 5-0. There was a large crowd, and Prairie View has some talented athletes -- including the son of former Reds outfielder Bobby Tolan -- but they were overmatched by the pitching and sound fundamentals of the Owls. A two-run home run by centerfielder Tyler Henley in the first inning gave Rice all they would need, but the poor Panthers committed four errors, at least three of them throwing, and two on a single play allowing two runs to score late.
They seemed a little intimidated at the fact they were in the CWS, and playing the #2 nationally ranked team, and they played like it.
When I got back home after being gone all afternoon and evening, Teddi was so excited that she vomited her dinner.
It was an eventful day.
