It's 2:00 a.m., and Chris and I (along with Charles and Holton) are just back from the Ballpark at Arlington. We went tonight to watch our two favorite AL teams: the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the DFW Rangers of Arlington. The Angels seem to have upset both citizens of LA and of Anaheim with their new name . . . but they're still one of our two favorite teams. And tonight, John Lackey was pitching and got his first win of '05. We've now gotten to see John pitch a couple times in Arlington and once in Anaheim. There's not much better than a night at the ballpark with your child. So glad for every game Matt and I took in, and now I'm thankful that Chris (still wearing his back brace) can go again. It's a hard spring for him, since he's having to sit out baseball. But seeing him at the park (in his Rangers shirt with his Angels cap) -- well, it seemed like a moment of normalcy following months of chaos. Now for a few short hours of sleep. Tomorrow night's message in "Oasis" may be rather brief!
