So I went out with NewMSWStudent last night. We stopped by her new place for me to check it out, then headed over to Berkeley to Pyramid Brew Pub for dinner and beer. Just an FYI for anyone planning to drive from the East Bay to SF sometime in the next several years - don't! Traffic last night around 7:30 was already backed up to the MacArthur Maze, which slowed our progress to Berkeley.
But I digress...We had a great conversation, then good beer and food. Since we were in a bar, and there was a television, a neighboring table was quite excited to watch the baseball game...so we got to talking baseball: how I hate it, how she enjoys going to live games to people watch...and then she utters this absolutely brilliant observation, "We're so concerned about our baseball players using steroids, but no one's concerned about how our football players got to be so f*cking huge!" Absolutely! (Without padding, some of these guys are like buildings. How does that happen?)
On a slight tangent, I'm in the midst of deciding if I can afford some travel this spring, and I was hoping to solicite opinions about the weather in London in April.
