Read last night of the upcoming 20th anniversary of Cal Ripken's 2131 game this September 6. I was at a number of the run-up games (this was before Peter Angelos drove the Orioles out of me completely and baseball - I thought - nearly), and I know I was at 2129 (Landru and I think he was there, Hamster, were you? I think you were), and I didn't take a thousand photos with a digital camera nor blog about it the next day yet I've a vivid memory of enjoying myself thoroughly. The youtube is my door-locking ritual from yesterday, used daily on house and car and anything I want locked since I left the backdoor unlocked at closing of Crown Books 826 on my first night as a Second Key Manager (in which I was nearly fired - if I had been fired I would not have met Earthgirl and there would be no Planet) back when the Orioles still played at Memorial and Cal Ripken was a rookie. Fine metaphors abound.
