Running a bit on fumes…

Kind of tired, but am learning stuff. My question: how much balance to give between examples and theory? To learn time series, you really need both.

Workout notes: weights only: pull ups (5 sets of 10, one of 5), incline: 10 x 135, decline: 7 x 175, military: 7 x 50 standing, 15 x 50 seated (got it; right arm still an issue though), 10 x 40 standing, rows: 3 sets of 10 x 50, 10 x 110 machine: 6 x 30, 6 x 50 goblet squats, leg presses (10), plank, headstand, etc. Knee bends: 4 lb. medicine ball is almost comfortable; lots of progress.

Politics: this is an interesting article about Pete Buttigeig and how he is covered. He is an interesting guy; I’d like for him to have had either Congressional or gubernatorial service first though.

Biden is supposed to enter tomorrow. Sigh…I do want new blood but if this is what it takes to beat Trump…

Illinois 4, Bradley 2 (great game though)

For at least the 3’rd year in a row, the visiting team won each game in the Illinois vs. Bradley baseball series.

Last night, Illinois defeated Bradley 4-2 in a very entertaining college baseball game that featured a bit of everything. Of course, from my point of view, it was heartbreaking as BU had its chances to win..and even out hit the Illini 7-4 in the first 9 innings.

The first 8 innings were a pitcher’s duel that had BU tying the game in the bottom of the 7’th with a solo home run. The action featured a “Sports Center Highlight” worthy play on a ground out by the Bradley shortstop and an excellent play by the Illinois pitcher which prevented BU from scoring with 2 out (hard grounder was stopped and the runner thrown out).

Then in the 9’th, Illinois got a towering home run to right field to lead 2-1. BU got an infield hit that hit the ground and bounced up almost as high as a pop up. A wild pitch moved the runner to second and two long fly balls moved the runner to 3’rd and then home.

But in the 10’th, the Illini bats woke up for a couple of singles with 2 outs (nice left fielder to 3’rd throw out though) to lead 4-2, and that is how it ended.

Though I am sorry Bradley didn’t win, it was a fun game..and nice to see the players on other teams there to support them.
