A day in the life

Read the news today, oh boy.

You know that moment in the Beatles song A Day in the Life, when the orchestra plays through complete chaos only to end on the same note? For that segment of the song, the beginning and the end were structured, but each individual player was free to find his way from Point A to Point B.

That’s what traveling on the Yankees beat is like. We all start in one city, and we end in a different city. How we get there is completely up to the individual.

On the off day between Games 4 and 5 of the American League Championship Series, Marc Carig decided to Tweet his entire day. He started with his 4:23 cab to the airport and let the rest of the day unfold: Checking the morning clips, getting a fast food lunch, making fun of my shoes, covering the afternoon workout, having a drink at the hotel bar. It’s all in there.

He posted the entire day on his personal blog.

Check it out. It’s quality morning reading, but fair warning: Marc grew up outside of Oakland so some of the lingo is a bit odd. Ya’ll gotta be ready for that.

Woke up, fell out of bed,
Dragged a comb across my head.
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup,
And looking up I noticed I was late.
