To the rest of the country – from one of the places that celebrates it (the 2 being Mass. and Maine). Lots of rain right now, so the Red Sox traditional 11 AM game may be delayed, but the Marathon will be up and running – heh heh – on time. As for what it’s about, here, from Emerson’s Concord Hymn:

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.

Now I need some sleep.

Baseball comes up a lot in the writing of Peter Abrahams (aka Spencer Quinn). Here’s a little something from TO FETCH A THIEF (3rd in the Chet and Bernie series but they can be read in any order! Don’t forget – Bernie pitched for Army):

Were we going anyplace special? I didn’t know, but I never turned down the chance for a walk. Soon we came to one of those places for throwing baseballs at milk bottles. We’d been to one before, me, Bernie, Suzie. The guy running it – tattoos all over his face, I never like that in a human – told us to get the hell out of there and never come back. By that time Bernie had won too many stuffed animals to carry, but why anyone would want even one was beyond me.

We had some Dodger fans in front of us. They were very funny and friendly and perhaps drunk.

Red Sox in 6. But no New Englander (like us) can hate the Dodgers, not when they’re managed by Dave Roberts. Here’s what he did in 2004 (below) and changed everything!
