Dear Rays,

Thank you for doing your best to make this a series.  Course it won't really be a series until Boston trails but it is a start.  Now, it's up to the Dodgers to get back into it at home against the Phils later today.

I'm not familiar with the picture, is that Cacaphonix (sp?) from Asterix?

The best thing I can say about last night's game is: At least a local guy scored the winning run.

The Dodgers remain sworn enemies in the Bronx even with Joe Torre, Don Mattingly and Larry Bowa with the team. I once saw Jayson Werth go out of his way to do something very nice for a dedicated old fan when he was playing AAA ball in Syracuse so I'll go with the Phillies.

Not a bad call on the picture. No, it's Gaston LaGaffe, another French comic, and my all-time favorite. The guy who created him, Franquin, was the MAN.

3 A contemporary of Peyo; the originator of The Smurfs; of whom I had some serious consideration about his Les Schtroumpfs Noirs, but a fine cartoonist nonetheless >;) They obviously shared the same influences, though Franquin I think had a more refined technique.
