Told myself I would finish editing my manuscript today. Instead I am transfixed by the Brewers game on my television screen. Who is this pitcher on the mound and what did they do with the mess that was Suppan in his previous starts? I can’t stop watching. Must see Suppan gain another scoreless inning. Okay, I’ll compromise. I’m hitting mute on the commercial breaks and turning my eyes to chapter nineteen until the top of the sixth starts.
