Postscript to End of Summer

It was a warm sunny day in Oakland, with just enough breeze to keep the temperature comfortable. A colleague and I saw the A’s starting pitcher, Brandon McCarthy, pitch a complete shut-out game, as they beat the Mariner’s 3-0. My sequence of wins and losses is broken and I am 5-4 on the season.
I am now sat in the garden under a cloudless sky, typing this and wondering whether to open a bottle of wine or mix a cocktail.

  1. Funny how a shutout is boring for all but the fans of the winning pitcher’s team – even though a relatively unusual outcome for the sport in general.
