[M.A.P.L.E. VII-20] No Clock

This weekend has been all about baseball and softball for me: yesterday I went to the White Sox / Rangers game, where the Sox rallied from an 0-3 deficit to win 5-3.

Today, I’ve been listening to the Wildcats / Bulldogs game, where the score changes, per scoring inning, have been (NU listed first) 0-2, 4-2, 4-3, 4-7, 6-7, and it is currently in the sixth inning–Northwestern has 6 outs to work with.

[Taglit 5-Year Retrospective-part 8 of 11] A Place in Time

25:30

25:30. Sounds like it could be a lot of different things. One thing that I will jokingly refer to is a scoreline, like Northwestern vs. Central Michigan football from a few years ago.

Or, it could denote a chapter and verse in Scripture. Yes, and in some sense that has an indirect link to what I am talking about.

Actually, both the theme of football and religion can enter this post!
