Here’s to you Jacoby

Hey everyone! 

First of all I need to apologize for my lack of entires over the weekend. As I briefly mentioned in my last post, which Grady has taken way too seriously, this week is Finals Week at Clemson. Today I had my hardest final (History of Science and Technology in Society, sounds like a party doesn’t it?) and I spent the whole weekend studying for it. Therefore I had zero time to write an entry. You may have noticed I have been commenting, however, that is because reading and commenting makes a very good study break. So does Facebook as others of you may have noticed.
While I was studying I was however watching baseball. I saw all games of the Indians/Twins series and at least parts of all games of the Yankees/Red Sox series. And yes I was watching when Jacoby stole home and at the same time my heart. I have been very candid about what I like in a baseball player and speed is pretty much it. So stealing home was amazing. Good job Jacoby.
I haven’t quite decided how Grady will be getting my heart back. It may be tough. Or maybe not. It may be as simple as smiling or may be as difficult as bunting for a hit or stealing 2 or 3 bases or hitting a home run. Yes I know I don’t put a high priority on the long ball but it would not hurt his cause. Anyway this series should be interesting. All of my favorite players minus So Taguchi on one field and in one game. It is incredibly difficult for me to watch the Indians and Red Sox play because I am so torn most of the game. I want Jacoby and JD to do well but I want the Indians to win. I also pray we never have to face Papelbon because hopefully we are winning by the ninth inning so there is no need for a closer and then I don’t have to want Papelbon to do well but want the hitters to do well too. That is impossible.
Here is one my friends statuses from this weekend: “Things learned by Cubs fans: When you buy a ticket to Wrigley you can always bank on seeing the bottom of the ninth.”

    Do I have to come up to Clemson and being a Intervention with some of the other bloggers.
    You can not go from loving Grady Sizemore, who still gets his morning coffee at the same place for the last 4 years, to the “Mighty Mouse who scored”.
    I can undertand infactuation and a instand connection with someone, but please do not go into the Red Sox light.
    It is a bad place for Indian fans, and you might not be seen from again.
    Please come back to your Tribe ways, and all will be right with the world. Either that, or I am going to get with Orangebird and we come on up and have an Intervention in I-85.

    Julia- Thanks! The hardest one is over so I’m pretty much home free from now on.
    Jane- The Indians will always be first. No matter who they play.
    Kaybee- Yeah usually. I just loved that steal.
    Matt- Sportscenter will always basketball and football over baseball no matter how good the play is. True story.
    Sue- Yeah and he had the guts to do it.
    Ryas- No worries. Grady definitely just took my heart back. Don’t know how but he did. I will never desert the Tribe but I will like the Red Sox as long as they have Jacoby and JD (#’s 2 and 3 on my favorite players ever list). And where does he get his coffee because I am so going when I go to Cleveland this summer.

    Yes…I have totally noticed that Facebook makes a great study break. Almost too great sometimes! But, good luck with your finals! I bet it’s a great feeling to have summer just around the corner…I’ve still got about five weeks.
    But, I am totally with you regarding the Jacoby steal. It’s good to know Grady has your heart back, but Jacoby may have mine for a while…
