.......I walked up to Fisher's last night to catch the Canes-Sabres game. I usually feel safe jaywalking across Elm Street because there's not much traffic at that hour. But as I cut across the parking lot of First Presbyterian Church, I noticed the brand new pedestrian crosswalk across from the new Magnolia Place condos. I decided to take it, and I honestly felt safer and more secure as I crossed the street. Not such bad things, I thought to myself.

Once safely ensconced in Fisher's, I enjoyed the perfect sports fan's evening. Normally I prefer autumn, when the baseball pennant races and playoffs run merge with football season. But spring's not so bad either. Last night, I enjoyed a fast-paced, extremely physical matchup between two great hockey teams, saw the Yankees get out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth against the Red Sox, then finished the evening watching Steve Nash take charge.

I feel good today.
