It’s 3am and I’m still awake

Being awake at 3am is a bad thing when you have a toddler who gets up between 6am and 6:30. She doesn’t understand that Saturdays are for sleeping in. I had no intention of staying up so late, but a number of events conspired to keep me up. First, I foolishly drank a Coke at like 9:15 after having had coffee earlier. Then, around 10, I started playing Beetle Adventure Racing on my N64. I spent quite a while playing and I made a lot of progress in the game, but the thrill of racing got my mind going, making it difficult to just head off to bed.

While waiting to become sleepy again, I paid attention to how my fantasy baseball team was doing. Unfortunately, this got me worked up, too, since one of my closers came on in a non-save situation, only to find himself in line to pick up the win if the Angels were able to get a run out of a bases loaded, 1 out situation. I was sitting in front of the computer, watching the game on MLB.TV and whispering (Heather and Elizabeth were asleep) shouts at the batter, Mike Napoli, to not ground into a double play. Fortunately, he came through with a sacrifice fly to drive in a run and win the game for the Angels and Francisco Rodriguez. With that unexpected win I extended my lead against my opponent this week.

With that game out of the way, I turned my attention to the Dodgers/Diamondbacks game, which had just gone into extra innings. I have a player on each team, but both began the game on the bench. Later in the game, they were both brought in to pinch hit and then play their normal positions. As I kept track of the statistical categories I was winning and losing, I found myself rooting for various things to happen in the game. Unfortunately, my guys (and others) didn’t really help me out in seeing my desires fulfilled. And, I stayed up to see them do nothing for me… That said, I am leading my opponent 11-3 right now. If I can hold it together through the weekend and the two guys ahead of me continue to lose, I could get into the championship bracket in the playoffs…
Ok, I’m going to bed now.
