[Post-game update: Well, that was a fun NFL season.] I went to Burlington, Mass., yesterday so I could have a meal at the nearest Chick-Fil-A1 and to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown Cambridge. The meal was delicious (chargrilled club value meal with large waffle fries and a classic sandwich in addition), but this Papelbon sighting ruined it. I also saw Milan Lucic and Marc Savard jerseys. Savard is a good hockey player, and it was a kid wearing the jersey. But Lucic? The guy was in Abercrombie & Fitch.2 Lucic is an awful player. These fans don't make any sense.
Anyway, Comcast or the NFL or someone messed up, because the Redskins-Giants game is supposed to be on TV here, so I'll watch it at home. That does go against the whole Garden Pest philosophy of showing up at local places and rooting for out-of-town teams, but since the people here don't really like the Giants anyway, I wouldn't be making a wortwhile point.
1. Tied with In-N-Out as the best fast food joint in the world, according to U.S. News and World Report. Penn is third (Penn can't crack the top 2).
2. I wasn't shopping at Abercrombie & Fitch. I just saw the guy in there.
