A game-tying ninth inning home run. A managerial ejection. A walk-off ten inning win. What more can you ask from a baseball game?
Well, if it were shorter, I could get home and do my blog, right? Right.
Today, Boromir suggests another route, seeing as the road through Moria is terrifyingly awful. Why not cut out towards the sea, and wind around south? Nope, Gandalf won’t allow it. They don’t have the time, and will likely be watched by their enemies. As a group, they will be watched more closely than as individuals. Thus, the only path must be through Moria, which can’t be all that bad, right? Sauron’s dungeons would be worse, if that’s any comfort.
-the Isen: River running through Isengard. As if that wasn’t obvious.
-Langstrand: Coastal land to the southwest. Loosely populated.
-Lebennin: Region of Gondor closer to the coast. Also very rural.
-Barad-dûr: Sauron’s tower. Bad. Very, very bad. Like, duh.
It is finally named, the Dark Tower is! It’s kind of the best, most evil-sounding thing ever.

Yes, so Boromir wants to go all the way out to the coast, and travel through these rough, rural lands. At first it seems like an okay plan, but it will take close to a year, being so roundabout. Time is not on our heroes’ side.
Oh boy, oh boy, I need to go to bed. Last note: the eagles haven’t been laying idle this whole time. They’ve actually sent reports of the movements of orcs in Middle-earth. Apparently, orcs have massed in distant lands, but no sign of them has been seen moving towards Moria. So we’re off easy, right?

Winning feels good. Blogging about Lord of the Rings when you get home? Even better.
