There’s been a lot of sportiness going on in my world lately, how about in yours? I found myself at a sports bar last night to watch the US Open Women’s final, and I was surrounded by 23 or so TVs excitedly blasting the football season’s premiere. I’m not historically a sports fanatic, but there was something comforting about all those glowing screens. Plus, I have Yankees tickets for tonight. So I’m really in the mood.
