Back in Boston for the Convention and before the political games begin, I enjoyed the Sox v. Yankees game. And what a game it was!
Wow, talk about a rivalry that makes the Democrats and Republicans look tame! By the way, I was a cautious fan and quickly donned my "anybody but the Yankees" attitude (and had no beer thrown at me as I made my exit).
As for Convention activities, they get started in earnest tonight, with a welcome reception for each delegation. Oregon (and I think Washington) will be over at the Boston Latin School. Thank goodness the various public safety unions and the city have made peace in the past few days. I am glad we get to enjoy a reception instead of joining our union friends on a picket line or just staying at the hotel for the evening. Meanwhile, we're hoping they'll be ready for us on the security front by the time things get started tomorrow.
