So it was lovely....

...in the old-fashioned sense, drifting off to sleep Tuesday eve not with a knotty intellectual study like American Babylon by Fr. Neuhaus, nor with the misanthropic meanderings of many of the passages in Updike's Widows of Eastwick, nor the occasionally sexual provocations in Family Planning, but to simply drift off under the green baseball fields of a Reds/Brewers game on television, drifting off even as the Reds took a rare commanding lead. I'd taped the game and woke up with it as well. Welcome back baseball!
