Endy Chavez!

Mets and Cards are tied 1-1 in the bottom of the eighth at this point. LaRussa just took Suppan out of the game after pitching a hell of a game. I gotta say, though, that whoever wins, the most amazing moment of any of the playoff games this year was Endy Chavez's catch of what should have been a home run by Scott Rolen. You'll see the clips over and over tomorrow. Wow.


Metablogging while watching baseball

This is the end, I hope, of another extended absence from the bjimblog.

It occurred to me while reading Dave Winer's posts on Scripting News that the reason I have these months-long gaps in the blog is that I try to make each post an major event. Dave doesn't do that. He's posting while watching the same Mets/Cards game that I'm watching. (Duncan just hit a home run -- Cards 4, Mets 2). I was treating posts too much like work.

Part of that was trying to add all those tags. I write directly in HTML, but don't want to have to remember the syntax for Technorati tags. I see that the new Blogger beta has a Labels for this post box below, so I'll start using that, and see what that does.
