May the 1992 spirit of Tim Wakefield be alive and strong today in R.A. Dickey . . .

You've got to be kidding me. Dickey gives up a HR to Wainwright. 2-1 Mets. 33% of the game in the books.

Mets get run back. Up 6-2 . . . headed to bottom of 8th.

Not at airport. Local radio station on in background. Working on a lengthy brief today; door closed; radio on . . . Wakefield "juju" working. Also helps to have three working computer screens on my desk . . . email on one, word processing on another, internet on third . . . gotta love technology.

I started using dual screens a year ago, and cannot remember how I got anything done before implementing the change.
