    It was. I even played a quick quarter of football before running out of the house! Just not at the same time as I was shaving.

    The question is who are you routing for. 3 of the teams are NYY rivals - Braves, Dodgers, and Red Sox. I'm routing for Houston.

    Doing my best to stay neutral but what I'm finding is that as I'm watching I end up rooting for a team. Last night it was hard to root against the Red Sox. That offense is scary good. In the ninth I found myself cheering for Houston because I was hoping they would stage an incredible comeback.
    Over in the National League I have to go with the Dodgers. My wife and I went to LA for our 26th anniversary in 2018. We went to Dodger Stadium to see a game and it was incredible.

    As I move chronologically through my Open Combs for the month, this is the last of the vintage ones...and what a great shaver it is. A wonderful combination of smoothness and efficiency.
    Have a great day all!

    Just got back from camping with 7 first graders, and seven new dads, 5 of which had never slept in tent, so just a photo. Tonight was all about the Tabac. Well Whipped with a Chubby 2, and scraped off with the Gillette Heritage Razor. Whatever blade was in there already. Pretty robotic shave, I'm tired. But I did get something in the mail, and I challenge any of you Tabac-onists to match me for this one ounce for ounce, full shower to the shave all Tabac. Tabac shower gel, Tabac Soap, Tabac Balm, Splash of Tabac AS, finish off with a big body splash of Tabac Cologne.

    Like random, but in Berlin instead of Tokyo, and yes, I tossed off my shirt a la Bronson!
