Back to back.  Ugh

It all worked out.  He seemed a little wild with a lot of full counts but didn’t walk anyone right?

Just the roar at Fenway when he first came out to the mound in the top of the 1st gave me goosebumps.  Been two years since he’s pitched.

This does feel like when a kid’s travel soccer team is struggling, so the coach arranges for a game against the town’s B-team to get their confidence up.  You just pray it doesn’t backfire and the B-Team wins, ha.  I feel like college teams do that all the time too.

14 runs scored for the Sox and the 5th inning isn’t even done.

I flew southwest from PVD to LAS and both times were great. Interesting.

I fly it out of PVD some. This time I had to take it out of Logan and it sucked. 
when I used to travel for work pre Covid I flew jet blue to San Diego a lot. Non stop. Awsone flight.

Like Dave said, SW used to be a lot better. But honestly they all suck right now.

Airline travel overall sucks except for a  few instances I guess when you fly a premium airline and/or have something like first class seating.

I’ve always had good luck flying American, of course I’m probably jinxing myself saying that. I haven’t flown since summer 2019 when we went to England and Germany. Flew from BOS to LHR on AA. The return was on British Airways. I was surprised how nice that was. Decent meals and snacks. We were lucky enough to have an empty seat in our row so that greatly improved the comfort level.

I flew AA this past week. Packed in like sardines, but at least departed and arrived on time.

I never understood why folks had so much trouble lining up by number frankly.  It seemed way more orderly than on AA, etc., when they call group 3 and everyone pushes to the gate all at once like a herd of cattle.   Or want to pay like $30 extra to not sit in a middle seat or at the back of the plane.

I can’t stand Southwest.  I liked them back in the 1990s but now they are pretty bad.  JetBlue for a discount airline blow them away

JetBlue hasn’t been discount in a long time.  It’s now considered legacy.   The very worst is American.    I accumulated hundreds of thousands of miles which I used and said good bye.   Must be management-attitude sucks.  It’s a shame because I got my Aadvantage # in 1984-one of the early ones.

Nowadays airlines are recouping what they lost in the early days of the pandemic but it seems they are really putting the squeeze on.   My favorite airline is Delta.

Sad what is happening in Kabul. from all the death on 9/11, to the years of fighting, now back to square one. It's an empty feeling. Fall of Saigon x2

 My nephew's marine unit are the ones in Kabul now removing US citizens and US embassy staff.  The mission should be completed in 72 hours.  It seems that there will be a peaceful transfer of power there.  Our government is in contact with the taliban telling them it's in their best interest not to take the city by force.

With Bagram and all bases fallen, I am curious where the 5k troops deployed actually are. The airport?

Afghanistan has been a tribal mess for centuries and neither the old USSR nor the US changed that much.  What's especially sad is the Taliban's treatment of women - slaves and brood mares.  :fulltilt:

Wife's been working the BOS to LHR this month. She's been bringing back some decent IPAs.

Boston (and New York) are great cities to fly out of as no one airline dominates the market. Keeps prices down due to competition, at least relative other hubs.

Living in Dallas, it was either AA out of DFW or WN out of DAL if you didn’t want to connect. Of course, at the time, I kind of liked the high prices as work paid for all my travel and the higher the price of the ticket, the more miles and status earned. 
 

I still mostly fly AA and continue  to maintain their mid-tier status. Pre-Covid, good luck getting an upgrade out of DFW, LGA, BOS, etc.. In the post-Covid world, I’m batting about 75% as a platinum. Not bad!

Sitting at the marina in our boat wondering why the restaurant isn't that busy when ordinarily it would be. They have no internet so cash only. Lost business. We're so dependent on credit.

It’s true, I’m not sure when the last time was that I carried cash on me.

Town of Stowe had a 2-hour internet outage on a Friday evening from like 5-7pm recently that wrecked town.  Hotels, restaurants, shops, even gas stations couldn’t process any electronic payments for two hours on a busy Friday evening.
