There is a partial/annular solar eclipse in progress in Europe right now.
My parents both retired from their State of Connecticut jobs today, taking early retirement. Upon arriving home, they were greeted by a stuffed-animal welcoming committee:
Here’s a shot of my dad getting out of his car as he arrived home from work:
Central Connecticut State University, the Division I college in the next town over from Newington, is playing Arizona State University, where Becky is going to graduate school, in the opening round of the NCAA baseball regionals tonight at 10:00 PM Eastern time.
The game is at Tempe, Arizona, and the ASU Sun Devils are heavily favored over the CCSU Blue Devils. Which means, if Central pulls off the upset, I can talk some serious trash to Becky. :)
UPDATE: Oh, well. Arizona State 14, Central Connecticut State 2.
UPDATE: Oh, wait… I assumed that was a final score. I guess it’s only in the top of the eighth. Uh, go Central! You can do it! Pull the comeback! Heh.
UPDATE: Okay, now it’s over. Same score: ASU 14, CCSU 2, final. D’oh!
