From the weekend

The weekend was a whirlwind of fun. My fiancee had her bridal shower. Her friend came in from D.C. and a good time was had by all.

In addition to the shower, my bride and her family set about getting the chuppa ready for the wedding. Seeing as how they had only a fuzzy idea of what a chuppa is, since they are catholics (yes, it will be a dual officiant, interfaith, mixed marriage. Score cards will be available), they did a pretty good job at creating one.

Among the better news of the weekend was that the Tigers defeated the New York Yankees. According to some reports, this could be the end of Joe Torre as the manager for the Bronx bombers. The rumour is that he will be replaced by Lou Pinella. Pinella has been in talks, according to various sources, with a number of teams, including the San Francisco Giants. Which leaves me wondering, would Torre be good for the Giants if he did become available? Or the better question is, can Torre be successful without the same amount of financial support that Steinbrenner has been providing all these years, which the Giants ownership could nto hope to match?

But the best news of all from this weekend? The Dodgers lost.
