Me thinks some people don't follow baseball and despite the video I posted yesterday, didn't understand my tongue and cheek reference to beards. For those, I meant no offense and facial hair doesn't really bother me, except to say when its on the faces of San Francisco Giants who swept my home town team in the World Series. Their beards are a big part of that team's persona. Even fans get into it and wear fake beards to their games! Maybe if you watch the video, you'll understand it was merely an attempt at humor and a salve for my disappointment. I had no idea people were so sensitive about beards. Me? When it comes to Giants, I now fear the beard!
On to other things. Family and friends I have along the east coast are safe today and that makes me especially thankful. Everything else pales in comparison, including losing a few baseball games. We've had some wind, rain, cold and few downed branches here in Detroit, but nothing to write home about. Along Lake Huron, fairly far from the Atlantic Ocean, 29 foot waves are being reported. Yesterday, I saw video of crazy people making the best of the storm and surfing in Chicago on Lake Michigan. Granted those surfers were clad head to toe in special gear to protect them from the cold, but it still had to be freezing. It was in Detroit. I was clad in wool, alpaca and down and I was still cold!
