Snow Day. Posted by Hello

Some pictures from our window overlooking Main St in downtown Cincinnati. That little storefront in the lower left of the bottom picture is what we call the "40oz. Store." It's the local bodega which doubles as both beer store and crackhead hangout.
Anyway, thanks to Mother Nature, I got to sleep in today. Our restaurant was closed for lunch due to the fact that Cincinnati is such a poorly run city that no snowplows or salt trucks have been through downtown yet. It was like being a kid on a snow day. Una cosa buena.
The Red Sox signed Wade Miller to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with up to $3 million in incentives. Miller had won 45 games over 3 seasons before he was brought down last year by a rotator cuff injury. Miller is expected to resume throwing in January and should be ready for the start of the season. I think this was a great move by Theo. I'm finally starting to feel a little more at-ease with the guys that will be showing up in Florida in february, even though I'm still a little weirded out by having to cheer for David Wells.
Oh well. It could be worse. I could have to cheer for Javier Vazquez, hehehehehehe.
