3. Walked from my daughter’s house in the German Village to the new Clippers’ stadium on the other side of downtown – a walk she claims is 2 miles, but felt like the Bataan Death March. (Note to self: Never go for a stroll with a woman who is training for the Boston Marathon.)

5. Came home and absolutely crashed, taking my weary old body to bed at 8:30.
