Red Sox, Patriots and Leopards...Oh My!

It's been great to be a New England sports fan lately. The Boston Red Sox clinched their 7th World Series title last night after sweeping the Colorado Rockies. And, the New England Patriots have run their record to 8-0 after shellacking the Washington Redskins 52-7 this weekend. The sports pages are ablaze with disgruntled fans and offended, PC-geared, commentators who say the Patriots are "running up the score" on their opponents. Yeah, they are. Scoring records were made to be broken. Why SHOULDN'T the Patriots try to beat the other teams as much as possible. And to the Patriot opponents who have complained about the scoring, here's a tip: If you don't like it - stop them. It's that easy (or maybe it isn't, and that's why you're so upset).

Okay, so that's what's going on in the sports world, right now. At least, in my sports world. I'm working my butt off at my new job, trying to figure out PC mysteries and do my best to keep up with the Mac work we have had. Apple released OS 10.5, nicknamed Leopard, on Friday, and I've been doing my best to learn all the features. I haven't installed it on my Mac Mini, but I do have it up and running on my (work's) MacBook Pro, and it's been doing great on there. I like a lot of the features it offers, and it makes finding information on your computer pretty easy. I think once I have more things on this laptop, it will be a real time saver. Until then, it just kinda looks pretty.

I have to say that the Bos Sox have a special place in my heart and I have pangs of the "sickness" from time to time, but they have been mighty impressive as of late.

I'm still on Mac OS 9.3 (Back before they had cool codenames for OS's!)
