I was at work, ready to listen to Game 3 of the Series. And now the World Series won't start until next Tuesday. Hmm.
 
By the way, I have 2 copies of the Chronicle and 2 of the Examiner from 25 years ago tomorrow, (heat-sealed in poly bags the next day at work). I was standing in the 7-11 when the delivery guy brought in a bundle of each, very deservedly beaming with pride, and I bought 2 of each, magnanimously leaving the rest for other customers. The next customer bought the entire stack.
