This season will forever be divided in two:
Like Lofton before him, Lawton's leadoff styling will propel the Cubs to a Wild Card victory and the playoffs.

Thus speaks Jason.


I've added a new link, Scott and Sue Sail Away, to the "nifty links" section. This blog follows two people on their journey from Chicago out to Key West and beyond. After New Years, they should be island-hopping in the Carribean.

How did they do it? Well, at age 55 Scott went ahead and retired from teaching, Scott and Sue sold all their belongings (house, car, um...everything) , and they boarded their 30' Catalina and started sailing in the wet water of the US. All they own is their boat and whatever fits in it. So far they have made it to Rochester, NY and will be in New York City by mid-August.

This is a very addicting site, I have to say, as they blog about their adventures when they hit various ports and there is a map with some big red arrows that shows their progress. It is also quite the popular site and will sure grow more popular as they wend their way down the coast.

Oh, and did I mention that they're my in-laws? What sort of family did I marry into?

I think we all wish we could just sail away sometimes. They just actually did it.
