Let the games begin

I asked for it. Now I hope I make it home in time from work to get it.

The US Senate race begins with some earnestness this evening with a debate among the four principals on the Democratic side. The 7 p.m. start makes it somewhat problematic for people who don't punch out at 5 p.m., but heck, it's a start.

Since Attorney General Martha Coakley fancies herself as the front runner, the focus will obviously be on her -- and Coakley needs to avoid mistakes like saying she has foreign policy experience because her sister lives overseas.

Rep. Michael Capuano, who does have experience, will be quick to pounce on that. But he needs to be ready to defend the fact that he has taken overseas trips on taxpayer dimes despite the fact he hasn't been focused on foreign policy during his years in Congress.

Alan Khazei and Steve Pagliuca? Well they just have to show up. Lightning may strike -- Coakley or Capuano.

And Money Pags should be grateful the debate isn't tomorrow night -- when the Celtics open their quest for No. 18 in Cleveland.

Any idea if this will be televised?
