The Angels are up 2-0 against the Red Sox. Read that sentence again and let it sink in. I don't believe it half of the time myself. But whether I'm dreaming or wide awake, I wore my too-red-to-be-seen-in-the-Ukrainian-public Angel shirt today to celebrate. While walking down the street with the aforementioned shirt exposed, I saw Sergei, the Academic Dean of KTS, coming from the opposite direction. As he approached, I noticed that he was wearing his New York Yankees hat. As soon as he recognized me, he, without hesitation and with a look of trepidation, turned his hat backwards. Hmmm. Was it in jest, or are Yankee fans the world over shaking in their boots at the prospect of facing us in the ALCS?

Angels are down 3 games to 1. I guess I was wrong about the Yankees being worried. Needless to say, I'm the worried one now. But, as mentioned, I start teaching Monday and it will be a much less hectic week if I wake up tomorrow and the Angels are out of it. I really couldn't care less about a New York vs. Philadelphia World Series.
