Weekend Review

A few quick personal notes here before the allergy medications kick in and I zonk out...wasn't able to catch most of the action this weekend (save for the 9 innings spent at the CoPa on Saturday) for two really big reasons:

1) Myself and my girlfriend of 2 1/2 years just got engaged and time was spent with family celebrating.
2) My new fiancee is a teacher. Since teaching jobs are just as scarce as every other job in Michigan. We will be relocating to Atlanta. She is leaving next weekend(with myself following near the end of the year), and time not spent with family or at the ballpark, was spent packing.

So in between helping her pack and getting pats on the back...there was my weekend in a nutshell. A little insight on why I had to marry this girl, we were going to leave on Saturday, but she delayed to Sunday morning so we could get one last Tigers game in. I can thank the fireworks for that one, as I don't know if she might have been so receptive of the idea had not the lure of the after game firework show been there.

Here's the weekend's baseball action, in box score form:

Game 78

Tigers 1 Twins 11

Game 79

Tigers 5 Twins 8

Game 80

Tigers 1 Twins 0

Congratulations on getting engaged, R&R.

And best of luck to you on your trek down South. I'm wondering if such a move is in the (semi) near future for me, as well. I've been keeping a close eye on the job market down there.

Thanks. It's been a crazy couple of months and now a wedding and relocating by year end...yeah I think the craziness level will stay at a constant high level from here on out
