Ugh: It was 90 degrees today, and 190 in my apartment. I stayed home with this bug raging – so much sinus pressure, sore throat, congestion, exhaustion. Dozed on my futon today while listening to proceedings from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and then WIBC for the Talk of Gasoline Alley. Donald Davidson is my hero! That man knows just about every fact, statistic and piece of trivia about the speedway and the 500. I always learn a ton listening to his call-in show. Trying to cool this place down enough to sleep and I’m keeping an ear on the Giants-Mets game. Fifth inning and the Giants have blown it open with a series of home runs – in this inning alone, Molina has hit TWO home runs. Current score: 9-1 Giants.
