Labor Day slipping away

Where is the time going on Labor Day? It’s already after 6 p.m. I guess my time is winding down in Kansas City. Back to Russell soon enough. I probably should drive back tonight to Russell and save the hotel points or money, but if I do stay, I can get some work done, finish it off, then drive back from 10 to 2 at a more leisurely pace. I have a decision to make. Soon.

The Milwaukee Brewers’ rapid freefall continued today at Wrigley Field. Their 4-2 loss to the Cubs, plus the Cardinals’ 5-4 victory over the Pirates in St. Louis, puts Milwaukee out of first place, whether it be tied or alone, for the first time since the first week of the season. I didn’t expect the Brewers to make the postseason after their fast start, but for it to be happening now is a little distressing. I’m doing my best not to get emotional over it, and so far, I haven’t.

The Royals were spared by Mother Nature early this morning when heavy thunderstorms suspended their game with Cleveland. The Indians scored twice in the top of the 10th to take the lead when the game was halted. The game will now resume in Cleveland Sept. 22, since the Indians don’t visit Kansas City again this season. Luckily this was a division game, or else the Royals might have had a hard time getting the game resumed.

Prior to 2006, the game would have been declared a tie, Under baseball’s official rules, when the visiting team breaks a tie and the home team cannot take its turn at bat, the game reverts to the last completed inning. That would have forced the game to start over, even though the statistics would count.

The Royals host Texas at 7:10.

This is the last Monday without the NFL until December 29. There is a college game on tonight, Miami at Louisville, the Cardinals’ first in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
