And for good measure . . .
Sacred Heart I and Sacred Heart II
As for Butler's class . . . I couldn't find it. Anyone?
•Lindy's magazine has it's FCS top-25 out for next fall and here are three teams of interest:
•Two of the three teams above will be dreaming of making it to the FCS Championship game, slated for Jan. 5 in Frisco, Texas. Harvard will be, as comedian Robert Klein said in this memorable audio clip about appearing on Jeopardy, "just watching." (If you listen to the clip, be sure to click the little "x" on the annoying pop-up ad.)
•Our Green Machine Cal Ripken baseball team capped off the regular season last night with another 10-run rule victory. It's our third unbeaten regular season in a row. The team now heads to Maine to play five games in three days at Harold Alford Fenway Park in Maine (although I've taken a pass on the trip) before starting the playoffs next week.
•After last night's game it was off to Hanover High School for the Mega Concert, two-plus hours of music with a Certain Hanover High Senior playing percussion. This afternoon his baseball team plays in the state tournament down near Manchester. Hanover isn't the favorite, but hey, it's a 12 vs. 5 game and you know about those ;-)
That Certain Hanover High Graduate, meanwhile, finishes final exams in Barcelona today and then tours a little in France and Italy before returning across the pond for her brother's graduation and the start of Sophomore Summer in Big Green Land.
•And finally, our "new" used car is at the mechanic today for inspection. When we set up the appointment the mechanic who has gotten to know us well over the years of taking care of our, um, older cars asked, "Did you have someone look it over for you?" (Clearly, he has a good grasp of my mechanical knowledge.) Hearing the answer, he (probably) gulped and said, "I'll look it over for you." I think he'll like what he sees but keep your fingers crossed. I mean, it may have only 100,000 miles on it, but it is a 12-year-old car.
