You can't make this stuff up...

The Farrelly brothers are having to rewrite and reshoot the ending of a romantic comedy with Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon that takes place through the Red Sox 2004 season, because when they first wrote it (based on a Nick Hornby novel), they naturally assumed the Sox were going to tank in October.


A skeleton crew and key actors flew to St. Louis this week to shoot a scene or two at the final game.

My costume...

Yes, I know it's kind of a lame costume, but I wore my trusty Cornell hockey jersey and carried a borrowed hockey stick to this afternoon's CIT staff Halloween party.

Sunday night's costume for a murder mystery dinner is a little bit more interesting, and certainly more labour-intensive. We'll see how it goes.

Off to the Chariot and then the hockey game soon. (Found someone to use the ticket!)

Great start from the Big Red

First real home game of the season, after last weekend's exhibition game, saw Cornell hosting Army. We used to play Army regularly, so it's nice to see this match-up once in a while. The Army game is often especially scrappy; sports psychologists say black uniforms seem to get teams riled up.

Tonight wasn't too scrappy, despite what must've been a huge mounting case of frustration on Army's part as Cornell kept scoring and they didn't. Final score was 7-1. Cornell has some impressive new players, including the 5'6" Topher Scott. (I actually wouldn't be surprised if he were an inch or two shy of that.)

Kinda disappointed in the coworker I gave my second ticket to this afternoon, who obviously didn't really grasp that I meant it when I said if she took the ticket, she had to come. I don't appreciate being blown off under any circumstances, but I really hate letting a hockey ticket go to waste. :-)

Got home to find a package of Northwoods Fire Seasoning courtesy of aedifica, who was telling me about the stuff the other night. Thanks, Liza! Since then I've been relaxing in front of the TiVo. Still have some catching up to do from my trip last weekend, but I've been making a dent the last couple of nights!
