I apologize in advance for the lack of posts lately.
Uhhh . . . you see, I've been a bit occupied at night.
I don't usually watch that much TV (which would explain why I usually get so much more stuff done!). But this week, I've been drawn to the television almost every night.
It's been an exciting week for Boston sports fans. I grew up in a city that had no sports teams. I didn't go to my first real baseball game until I was in high school (and that was still minor league - go Toledo Mud Hens!). When I moved to Boston, it just so happened to be the beginning of that era when Boston started doing really, really, well in sports.
Of course, it was infectious. I'd never seen an entire city so passionate about its sports teams.
For example, during the games leading up to the 2004 World Series against the Yankees, our law school professor set aside time to let us watch snippets of important games during class. On my walk back home from the subway station, I walked by restaurants and bars with TVs playing the games everywhere. People talked about it at work. Even if you were a complete sports newbie (which I was), you couldn't help but get caught up in it.
Anyway, it's been (and still is!) a fun ride.
But now . . . back to our regular scheduled program. I've got tons of posts coming up, covering topics such as the Martha's Vineyard Food and Wine Festival, a short series on Montreal, a longer series on my recent trip to Tokyo and Kyoto, snapshots on some of my recent restaurant experiences in Boston, and definitely some cooking posts (I know I've been a bit lackluster in that area lately - I blame it on the ease of roasting all my farm share vegetables this summer!).
Congratulations Boston Red Sox!
