odds, evens, and ends

+ my mom and sisters are visiting for a few days, so that’s fun.

+ my softball team is 6-5 with a big game tonight against 6-6 Calvary Monument.

+ I’ve got a quick article on enjoying your fantasy football draft up at Suite 101.

+ new Coldplay album is as good as expected in my book. Standout tracks so far are “Lovers in Japan”, “Death and all his friends”, and “Lost!”. According to Chris Martin, their tour dates will feature magical balls. They’ve also announced that Santogold will be opening for them. Not super excited about that…but whatever.

+ we’re about 2 weeks away from Parker’s maiden voyage to Fenway.  With Big Papi likely to be on the sideline, I really hope Manny plays when we’re there. Can’t wait to see the look on Parker’s face when he sees the Green Monstah for the first time.
