And so Saturday comes to an end and Halloween begins. I always liked Halloween, a day you can be whatever it is you want to be and get candy to boot. So if a tall girl dressed in black leather shows up at your door today don’t ask if you know her, it’s not important, just humor her and give her candy, preferably Kit Kats or Snickers. Girl can be a bitch and you don’t want to piss her off, a few candy bars is a small price to pay for peace of mind.
Sorry if at times this seems to be turning into a sports blog but fall seems to be the best time of year for sports and today was a fun day. Made my planed road trip south to see my sis and her team play in the district field hockey playoff and damn they won again. Seems my mini me’s career still refuses to die. They play again on Tuesday and with a win will play for the district championship with a likely invitation to the state playoffs. It was sweet to see her play again, hell it was just nice to see her. I know the feeling I got when I was in her position. When something you love, something that has been a part of your life for a long time, is about to end but you just don’t know when. I’m sure the tears will flow at some point, I only wish I could be there for her at that moment but I don’t think it will be.
Than I spent the night with my dad watching Penn State’s football team take apart Michigan. It was a great game with Evan Royster becoming the leading rusher in PSU football history, and that is a very select group. It was a strange feeling though watching the game with my dad, watching a ‘white out night’ game I would always have been at, and knowing Sean was there at one of his last games in the student section. One of those moments when it’s as if the gods are telling you it’s just time to move on. As I figured we would my dad and I also spent much of the game discussing the Phillies demise.
So it was a good day for both sports and family. At the same time it was more than little sad.
Happy Halloween my friends, don’t forget the Kit Kats.

A funny breakfast footnote I wanted to add last night and forgot. On the drive from my sis' game to my dad's I stopped at a little Amish roadside stand to pick up a pumpkin and some pies to take to work today. Nothing exciting other than the look I got from the people at the stand. You would have thought I came from another world. I suppose they don't get many black clad artsie lesbian vq wannabes in Lancaster County but they took my money anyway, I loved it. Happy Halloween peeps :)
