I've always liked storms. Yesterday's especially. It made sense. We had nothing but college football and gunboat gray skies to bide our time until today. Yet the delay seemed appropriate. Brett Myers' performance Friday against the Mets was masterly. My buddy and I watched the thing slack-jawed, awed by what Myers was able to do. Eight innings of shutout baseball - and all from a guy who's had a very strange season indeed. Greg Dobbs' homer barely cleared the wall. Amazing stuff all around.
John Gonzalez has written for the Inquirer, Boston magazine, Village Voice Media, Men's Journal and a host of other outlets he either can't remember or chooses to forget. He also ran for U.S. Congress once (and still won't shut up about it). After scribbling many words for print publications, he's now committed full-time to digital endeavors. Turns out the Internet isn't a fad after all. Tell your friends.
