I'm trying bravely not to get too giddy about the Phillies' chances in the NLCS against the Dodgers. The Phillies' come-and-go offense is prone to lengthy collective funks, and that's not a recipe for postseason success. But one can always hope, can't one?
Notre Dame is 4-1 and heading into a stretch of road games, starting this weekend vs. North Carolina. The Irish are maturing quickly and my hoped-for record of 8-4 and a decent bowl game both seem within reach. In November, Nicky, my Mom and I will be at M&T Bank Stadium to watch the Navy game.
No classes tomorrow due to Yom Kippur. I'll be back in a bit with a review of UNCLE SCROOGE #379.
