a long one in toronto

quite a long one between the angels and the blue jays tonight. the jays won 2-1 in 18 innings - a franchise record for extra innings played. both teams scored a run in the 9th, then nothing until the 18th. good thing for toronto is the have a 3 game set at home against texas starting tomorrow. bad thing for the angels - they have to go to new york and play the yankees for three. a long night tonight.

w.e.m. grand prix of edmonton

sebastian bordais won the wem grand prix of edmonton this afternoon. had a pretty decent run today. paul tracy finished 3rd in this race considering a bit of a brake problem. prior to this race, there was the toyota atlantic race. katherine legge won this one after a great pass in turn 12, helped by charles zwolsman getting hung up by a couple of slower cars heading into turns 11 and 12. by the way, my arms are a little on the red side. otherwise, it was a great day.
