Ten Things...

...That Make October the Best Month of the Year

10. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.

9. Jacket weather.

8. Colorful fall leaves rustling in the breeze.

7. Pumpkin carving.

6. Crisp, tart apples from our local produce stand.

5. The eerie glow of our Spooky Town Village in the dark.

4. Re-watching all of our Tim Burton movies.

3. Compiling the sequel to Instant Halloween (Coming Soon).

2. Having an excuse to dress Eddie up as a Wookiee and ask for candy from strangers.

1. The Baseball Playoffs - True, things aren't quite the same for me this year without the Yankees. But there are still plenty of teams with feel good stories to root for. There's the Tampa Bay Rays, literally exorcising their demons and making the postseason, winning the AL East, and heck, even finishing with a record above .500 for the first time. Or the unlikely pair of former Yankee manager Joe Torre and former Red Sox slugger Manny Ramirez uniting to help the Dodgers peak at just the right time. And lest we forget, the Cubbies are staring down 100 years of futility (although currently they are blinking). I am more than willing to temporarily switch my allegiance and cheer on any of these teams. Okay, really I am rooting for any team not from Boston.

You might recall that Kristen and I attended a (Devil) Rays game last September. My oh my, what a difference a year makes.

Dave, I feel that this is an appropriate time to mention that the YANKEES SUCK.

Thank you.

My fave is also the wookie profile. I do love all of those things about fall.. Russ would be offended that you didn't mention college football.

I was planning on rooting for who ever the cubs were playing but since the dodger took care of that for me I don't know who to cheer for now.
