It's rocky's favorite time of the sports year--the start of the baseball season and the start of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Tigers mounted an incredible comeback today with a 3-run ninth inning to beat the Indians 9-8. The Giants made a more modest comeback behind the superhuman pitching of little Timmy Lincecum. Both of my teams are off to a fast start. Go Tigers! Go Giants!
I actually had tickets to today's Giants game, but ended up not going due to a 4-hour rain delay. Instead of "play ball!" it was "play jazz!" Namely this lovely album of jazzy interpretations of baseball standards by Andre Previn and Russ Freeman--fine West Coast Jazz for the start of the baseball season.
