World Series - Game 3 Results

An outstanding pitching performance by the Cards' Chris Carpenter propelled St. Louis to a 5-0 win over the Tigers in game 3 of the Fall Classic.  With the win, the Cardinals hold a 2-1 series lead.

Game 3 Summary:  Tigers 0, Cardinals 5

The Tigers need to generate some offense, which has been almost non-existant since the series began.  But I have a feeling that things will turn around for them very soon.  Game 4 is scheduled for 8:00, the Tigers' will send Jeremy Bonderman to the mound and he will be opposed by the Cardinals' Jeff Suppan.  Detroit needs to have both their offense and pitching work for them tonight to avoid going 1-3 in the series.

Writing Status

I was able to complete a page for Five Card Stud yesterday and I hope to do so again today.  I'm starting to get in a writing groove again and I hope I can keep it up.  Spider-Man's Wonderful Life is still simmering on the back burner for the time being but I still have about half of the second chapter completed.

My plan is to get FCS completed this week, preferably by the weekend.  Then I'd be able to get back to SWL.

I'm feeling pretty good about everything concerning these two stories and once I take care of one, I'll be able to devote all my writing time on the other.

Veronic Mars - Charlie Don't Surf

A few things are happening in this installment as Logan hires Veronica to find out how his trust fund is mysteriously dwindling.  She also is hired by the fraternity that is at the center of the rapes that have been occurring at Hearst College.

During her investigation of Logan's inheritance, Veronica discovers that it is going to a Charlie Stone.  Upon further discovery, she learns that Charlie is Logan's half brother.  Logan sets up a meet with his brother and gets to know him better.  After she meets Charlie, Veronica continues her digging.  Visiting Charlie's class, she finds out that the one she met the other night is not the Charlie that she meets at his classroom.  It turns out that the imposter was a reporter for Vanity Fair, just to get a story about Logan.  Once that is cleared up, Logan tries to get in contact with the real Charlie Stone.

Dick Casablanas is the member of the frat that approaches Veronica about working for them in order to clear them of being apart of the rapes.  Parker, the last rape victim, still isn't very kind to Veronica.  She keeps telling Veronica that she doesn't understand until Veronica sets her straight.  She doesn't go into detail but Veronica lets Parker know what had happened to her.  During this investigation, Veronica draws the ire of past victims and their supporters.  Doing her job the best way she knows how, Veronica finally finds the evidence that she needs to clear the frat much to the dismay of many people, including Parker.  Once again, Veronica tells Parker that she will do everything in her power to find the rapist but she wants to make sure she gets the right culprit.  During those scenes I really cheered Veronica on.  She didn't like working for the frat but at least she found out that no one there was responsible for the rapes.  I eagerly await for this arc to end.
