Greetings from Gate E-9

Here we are at the Harmon Killebrew International Airport in Minneapolis waiting to return home. This airport is actually very nice and easy to use.

Caught Pineapple Express last night. I wouldn’t rush out to see it, but you could probably do worse. James Franco and Seth Rogan are funny. The best part was spotting which secondary characters were in previous Judd Apatow movies.

The Yankees are off today and start a three-day homestand on Friday against the Royals. It’ll be interesting to see how the crowd treats them. Let’s be honest, the road trip was brutal. It’s one thing to lose, it’s quite another to play so carelessly.


Bruce Springsteen released four live songs from his current tour on iTunes. One of them is The Ghost of Tom Joad with Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine. Morello’s guitar solo at the end of the song is amazing. He’s really innovative. You can download the song or video if you’re interested.

UPDATE: 4:20 p.m.: Yeah, I’m an idiot. Morello is with Rage Against the Machine. That’s what I get for blogging when I’ve had three hours of sleep. Thanks to everybody who set me straight.


Check back later, the Yankees have said they’ll provide an update on Dan Giese’s shoulder. If he’s out, they’ll need a starter for Tuesday and it could well be Phil Hughes.
