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.”
I hate them. They are boring and since everyone and their mom has an off day today there is really nothing to do. UPDATE: Two more games are postponed and another is in a delay. At this rate there will be no baseball at all.
This is what I do on off days. Watch videos of my crazy friends who dress up in bunny suits and steal people out of tour groups. This same person showed up in my room at like one o’clock with a flashlight shining in my face. Don’t worry they knew the girl they kidnapped from the tour. Funny story: One person in the tour group says, “That was creepy.” Another says immediately afterwards, “That makes me really want to go here.” We do our best to help the tour guides out.
So I will make my entry about something that caused a lot of discussion on Facebook today. So if you are not on Facebook I will explain to you what happened. There is an application on Facebook called Living Social. This application allows you to procrastinate even more or pay even lass attention in class by letting you pick your top five of anything such as Favorite Pro Sports Teams (Cleveland Indians, St. Louis Cardinals, Manchester United, Texas rangers, and Indianapolis Colts) or Celebrity Crushes (Grady Sizemore, Channing Tatum, Jacoby Ellsbury, Ian Kinsler, Nick Markakis), etc. You may think that this would get old but as anyone who has Facebook and is familiar with any application they never get old, ever. I have done about five million of these top five lists (exaggeration, but a lot) and eventually ran out of lists to do. So I made my own. I entitled it Baseball’s Best Fans. Here is my list with explanations.
5) Boston red Sox- (I also thought this one would cause problems.) I know a lot of people think Red Sox fans can be rude and just down right nasty but I have yet to meet a mean Red Sox fan. They all know and LOVE baseball. They cheer for everything. I love watching games at Fenway (on TV only, I have never been) because it is such a good atmosphere. Everyone treats every game like it is a playoff game. The only reason they are not higher is because they can be a little rude to visiting fans, especially Yankee fans (not that Yankee fans are any nicer). Also people throw pizza at each other. (Just for you Julia.)
Let the arguing begin.
5) I don’t remember. I used it a long time ago.
