An American Yankee Fan in Italy

You might wonder why things have been so quiet around here lately. That's because I'm currently in Europe, on vacation.

One of the wonders of being in Europe is that it has been virtually impossible to follow baseball. The ALDS has come in odd flashes: the first couple of nights, our hotel had CNN world, which meant watching the same highlights over and over again, almost a day late. For the weekend, however, I went out to the countryside...which meant no baseball info at all, with the series tied 1-1.

La Chiquita understood how hard this was for me. With the time difference here, there isn't the option of just heading off to a bar with a satellite dish--game time is 2:00 AM. Before the next city we would hit, I knew full well the series--and the Yanks' season--could be over.

Luckily, it seems that we have survived the weekend, to return to Los Anaheimos de Angeles for a conclusive game 5. All I can say is Let's Go Yanks!

That, and I'm sure I'll hear all about it tomorrow.
