Today was a mostly sports-filled day for me. I started off with a run this morning of 20 miles. Following that, I pretty much felt like laying on the couch the rest of the day, which is mostly what I ended up doing. I was flipping back and forth between a couple of early football games and the final Cleveland Indians baseball game of the season. They ended up winning, and in the process won like 9 of their last 11 games or something crazy like that. Too bad they couldn’t manage that last year, when they did the exact opposite to miss the playoffs. I’m not sure what to make of their chances next year, especially since there are 3 better teams than them just in their division. But I will keep an eye on them over the winter and hopefully they add to the team, instead of subtract like they did last offseason.
After that, I ended up watching a good portion of the Cleveland Browns football game against the Raiders. I skipped a bunch of the 1st half after they got off to a very lackluster start (as usual), but the 2nd half was pretty good. I’m not a huge fan like I was when I was younger, but I like to see them do good. I just haven’t been able to really get back into them since they returned back in 1999(?), but maybe that will change in time.
After that, I went out to dinner at one of my favorite places, Aladdins Eatery, out in Hudson, home to quite possibly the world’s best hummus. Their menu is full of delicious Middle Eastern themed meals, and I have never had something there that I haven’t really enjoyed, and tonight was no different. It’s always good to eat knowing that you burned about 2,500 calories earlier. Takes away the guilt.
