I’m in California for the next couple of weeks, doing some work with my dad. It’s nice to be back here, even if it’s cloudy and rainy.

As I got back, the Bay Area was talking about Barry Bonds hitting home run #714, tying him with Babe Ruth for 2nd place among all time home run hitters, but back in Prague everyone was talking about the hockey championship, not to mention the fight between Rath and Macek.

I haven’t seen video of the fight, so I can’t judge if this was a hissy-fit slapfight or if the two of the most-hated men in Czech politics really threw down. Regardless, I’m only sad that they didn’t really hurt each other.

UPDATE 17:57 PDT 210506: Thanks to reader bartj in the comments, here is a link to a video of the incident, which looks more like something from the Three Stooges or Benny Hill rather than full-gospel fisticuffs.
