I may be on the other side of the world, but when my baseball team is in the World Series, I know about it. We just got off the Abel Tasman track, one of New Zealand’s Great Walks, and I beelined to a computer to catch the last few pitches of Game Four. And Magglio Ordonez wins it in the bottom of the ninth with a three-run homer. GO TIGERS! And just in time for my birthday … 🙂

More on Abel Tasman later. In the meantime, I’ve got to get to a town with some proper sports bars.
