Misty and Foggy

Those skeptical of global warming can cite last night's weather conditions at Citi Field -- a damp 58 degrees accented by dense fog and a steady mist -- on June 11th. It initially looked as if skies were going to clear when we arrived.

Above: One of New York's new sports celebrities threw the ceremonial first pitch -- Football Giants 1st round draft choice Hakeem Nicks. As a wide receiver, wouldn't it have been more appropriate if he'd caught the ball and Eli Manning had thrown it?
Some scenes from Citi on a night reminiscent of the 1986 post-season. But that was October -- this was mid-June.
Above: Many ballplayers can say they went to William Howard Taft High School. 46 year old Phillies starting pitcher Jamie Moyer is the only one who can say he went to William Howard Taft's inauguration.
Looking like baseball's best off-season signing, Phillies left fielder Raul Ibanez. The former Royal and Mariner slammed a 10th inning homer to give the Phils a 6-3 victory.
