TO apparently has a skill that OC lacks... talking.
They played pretty equal on the field, but TO was the showman, especially when OC took the name "Robin" to TO's "Batman". Toast.

Rochester, NY's Battle of the Roadside Joints: Vic & Irvs or Don & Bobs?
Kind of like "Ginger or Mary Ann?" Each has Rochester's best oral fixations in mind, but you have to taste a little to make a commitment:
V&I: wide and floppy
D&B: thinner, solid
Hot sauce [Greek, meat-style]:
V&I: crushed red pepper, thin
D&B: thicker, chili-like
Decisive victory! Next up: LDR Char Pit [and I remember the rings as contenders].

Opening Day, Frontier Field, Rochester Red Wings AAA baseball [of the Minnesota Twins]
Chilly... even our would-be tour director Steve Smith bailed. Pussy! Maybe 8 of us truebloods showed up in 39F temps for the ceremonially civic dog-and-pony show. After the Mayor, after the County Executive, after the flag waving, after the wounded police officer beating all odds to throw out the semi-first pitch, etc, we finally got around to honoring some old git who hadn't received his Purple Heart commedation back during "The Big One". I salute you, citizen!!
Speaking of dogs, Rochester's "white hot" was out in all its glory, slathered in mustard, ketchup, relish, onions, etc. Opening Day [and most other games] are equally about taste and aroma.
Oh, the game... it was well played, regardless of temps dropping to 37F. Wings blew a lead, but broke the tie in the 8th to hold on.
After any game, it's fun to stop by Knuckles Knockout Grill. Working the beer tap is 'Stina. Her mom calls her Christina, but truth is, 'Stina's all grown up. I know, I know, my Motorola RAZR camera phone sucks.

College hockey: does it get any better than Cornell, the Big Red?
Thanks to Chris in Ithaca, I've seen several men's games this season. They've won the ECAC Championship and the cheering fans [Lynah Faithful] make the difference.
Even the zamboni driver gets in the spirit as you can see while he wanders the crowd during his down time.

Sometimes I amaze myself...
...at what I can whip up in a ol' black beauty. I've been doing some more website work and getting paid in beef. Really.
