I do not think that I will stay up right now trying to figure it all out since it seems to be very early in the match. :)

I cannot argue that one. Strings of consecutive numbers (e.g. 12345 or 24680) are also fun.

I believe that a Butler loss today secures me one of my two NCAA pools. I made top 10% in the other but cannot do any better than that regardless of the outcome of today's games.

As long as Red Stripe sponsors the game broadcasts and is the staple drink of the cricketers in this hemisphere, SFOTerry will be counted among the missing.

Now, if good wine were featured instead, I then could see him getting up some interest (between SF Giants games).

snod08 Apr 2, 11 10:51 am

Its a really close game till now.

Given where the cricketers in this hemisphere live, I think Red Stripe will continue to sponsor the broadcasts for some time to come.

Now that baseball season has started, it will be easy to be occupied elsewhere (in my case, at least until June :rolleyes:).

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

India are the new World Champions in Cricket!! for the next four years!!!

The Indian captain played a scintillating innings and took them all the way through the game today.

Sri Lanka played first and hit 274.
India hit 277 in reply with 10 balls to spare...but it was a nail biter!

Congratulations. Enjoy the beautiful day here (I have spent the afternoon driving my daughter around, as is typical for a weekend).

Hello B:rolleyes:x?

I have always been a UA guy, so I have never ventured into teh Box before. However, now that we are all one big "happy" family, I thought I'd come and say hi.

I'm in SFO, on an MR from snowy, miserable, YYC to IST and BLQ and back in only a couple days. Should be interesting, especially the 13.5 hr flight on TK from LAX-IST. In Y:td:.

In my own convoluted way, I made it to the first page of the new new new box. ^ :D This is what I get for having a life and traveling* for the past few days.

How many Boxes will there be? Did we need a new box? :confused:

Good happenings at casa d'sbm12 this evening. Lots of food on the stove and in the oven and the vodka is being served cold with a sliver of lime. Really nothing to complain about.

Me too. Daughter #2 is very interested in colonial history (good thing we live here rather than where I grew up) and we went out there in the fall to explore the soldiers' huts and Washington's headquarters. The river is very pretty there.

That is far superior to the offerings at our house. I'm coming to your place. @:-)

It is very difficult to follow which of the many Boxen one refers to. If my understanding of numbering conventions is correct, this would be 1.3, no?

My wife was just in PHL and ate at a couple of restaurants we used to frequent. Now, you are describing another place I used to go to - often. Why do you do this to me? Mean. :( I miss Valley Forge. At one point, I was looking to buy a house near by there.

Move back here. Who do we need to talk to at St. Christopher's or Nemours or CHOP?

Living out there would be too far away from the city for me (or, now, the airport, since I seem to go there more often than the city), but it is pretty to visit.

My wife and I overwhelming agreement with bold above. Please talk to CHOP. Do you know John Maris, MD? He's the man in charge of their cancer center. Help me get back to PHL (or close by).

For the first time, I also drove around there (usually just park and walk).
one can keep taking pictures non-stop there!!

Golly, we want the exact opposite...i want to move to IAH, and you want to get to PHL.

Now, if only we had the same job, we can switch.:p

What do you do again? I'll start learning/training for your job immediately.
