The Giants came back from a two-touchdown deficit at halftime, and took a huge 24-17 road victory over the Redskins. Maybe I should start watching their games more often. The Jets beat the Dolphins as well, so the back pages of tomorrow's New York papers won't carry warnings of panic or calls to deliver coaches' heads on a silver platter.

As for the Mets, their lead over the Phillies has been tenuous over this past week, but today's results have restored the margin to two and a half games going into this final week of the season. The magic number is down to five, and this fan has just a bit more confidence in our ability to extend the season into October and make a run at the big prize.

Something I forgot in the last entry: on the checkout line at Wal-Mart today, the guy in front of me had no ID, and also mentioned that it was his birthday today. A few seconds later, he disclosed that it was also his mother's birthday. In my 9,642 days of life to date, I have never met anyone who has shared that distinction with me.
