Is Anybody Out There?

The Reds are officially out of it, Griffey's pulled an abdominal muscle, and the game tonight doesn't even start until 10:15. It will be the dedicated Cincinnati-area Reds fan who stays up for this one.

On the other hand, it's Thursday, which is among my favorite nights to party. Maybe I'll stay up late and give myself a manicure or do some scrapbooking.

Or maybe I'll find a press release to call a post for the day and call it a night.

Go Reds!
