Getting Jefferson Right co-author Michael Coulter and I went down to watch the Pittsburgh Pirates play the San Diego Padres a couple of nights ago. We should have known there would be a (100 minute or so) rain delay from this sky:
We were on the very top row which turned out to be an amazing view of Pittsburgh. Here’s one more:
PNC Park is a beautiful place to watch a game. In case you were wondering the Pirates won and swept the Padres at home for the first time in over a decade.
That would be midnight. Here is the entry for my girl child’s high school video production class. Play it and rate it awesome and they might get the spot on television during the Super [Commercial] Bowl.
Some fun for the weekend. This picture was taken by Marcia Brennan of nearby Pittsburgh while she was in Washington, D.C. for a rally opposing the House health care bill. She sent this around and gave me permission to post.
Now let’s think up a caption for this beauty. I say it is a contest, but there really isn’t a prize. Or maybe I’ll send out a Throckmorton band CD for the winner.
If you haven’t watched Tim Hawkins in action, you are in for a treat. This video is more political than any of his other work. If you are a fan of the government now, then you might want to click through and watch some of his other skits. Well worth it.
