I'm playing in a softball league this summer that my brother in-law Mike put together. When I was living in Champaign, I remember being up in Chicago and hearing Mike and my other brother in-law Paul talk about their softball league. I was more than a little jealous. It seemed like so much fun to hang out with friends and family and play some softball!

Now that I'm living in Chicago (and staffed locally), I'm able to take part. It's been fun so far. We have a pretty strong team (our record is 3-1). It turns out that I'm a pretty solid base-hit producer. And even though I'm playing right field to minimize my defensive impact, I managed to catch a fly ball last night. Good times.

Copa Mundial 2006

Since I don't have cable, the only channel that I can watch the World Cup on is the local Univision affiliate, D66.1. I'm more dissapointed that it's in SD than I am that it's in Spanish. But hey, at least I can watch a few matches!

Edit: I take that back. ABC D7.1 will air world cup matches in HD on Saturday and Sunday. Record series: done.

World Naked Bike Ride

I heard a bunch of hooting and hollering outside of my window. I looked out and—much to my surprise—saw hundreds of bikes being ridden by naked and scantily-clad people. A little digging on the Internet turned up the World Naked Bike Ride event. You know how I see it? I saw some boobies: my Saturday night has been a success. :)
