So my New Year’s Resolution this year is too start writing again. I am going to try to schedule it into my day so I can get back into the habit of writing. I apologize for the long absence but I just got busy and eventually I got out of the habit of posting anything.
As you all know I went to Busch Stadium last night to watch the Cardinals play the Pirates. The Cardinals beat the Pirates by a score of 4-2. It was a good game. I even saw an Albert Pujols home run and almost an Adam Wainwright home run. If that seems confusing to some of you who remember that Wainwright pitched Tuesday night, he was a pinch hitter. That’s right, Tony LaRussa pinch hit a pitcher. Wainwright is a good hitter though so it is not quite as silly as it sounds.
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.
Congratulations to Austin at The Bottom Line for knowing the quotes were from Boy Meets World.
I hate the Rangers. I also hate the Indians. Thanks a lot guys. That sucked. I would have been fine with 9 runs for the Rangers as long as it meant not just 1 run for the Indians. Thanks. I hate Josh Hamilton, I hate Ian Kinsler, I hate Kevin Millwood, I hate Cliff Lee, I really hate Travis Hafner, and I hate Grady. Okay I do not actually hate any of these people; I am just frustrated with most of them. Grady is a little bit less on my hate list. He did manage to get the Indians first hit of the season but he struck out in first at bat which if you remember was during Psychology. It took a lot of self-control to not scream at the computer during class. This was not fun. It was supposed to be fun. I was not amused. Stupid Indians. There you have it; my first official rant.
“I know you can be overwhelmed (the Indians today) and you can be underwhelmed (the Indians fans today) but can you ever just be whelmed?” “I think you can in Europe.”
My favorite movie. Name it.
He is sensible and so incredible
And all my single friends are jealous
He says everything I need to hear and it’s like
I couldn’t ask for anything better
He opens up my door and I get into his car
And he says you look beautiful tonight
And I feel perfectly fine
But I miss screaming and fighting and kissing in the rain
And it’s 2am and I’m cursing your name
You’re so in love that you act insane
And that’s the way I loved you
Breakin’ down and coming undone
It’s a roller coaster kinda rush
And I never knew I could feel that much
And that’s the way I loved you
He respects my space and never makes me wait
And he calls exactly when he says he will
He’s close to my mother, talks business with my father
He’s charming and endearing and I’m comfortable
And my heart’s not breaking
Cause I’m not feeling anything at all
And you were wild and crazy
Just so frustrating intoxicating complicated
Got away by some mistake and now…
So apparently it is a tradition around here to dedicate a blog entry to a player who wore the number you are one the latest leaders. So I decided since I grew up watching the Cardinals I am allowed to choose players from them too. This time I chose:
After the 2007 regular season something happened in my baseball life. I was babysitting sometime in October and the family I babysit for only has a few cable channels so every time I babysit I have to watch whatever is on the normal network channels after Maggie goes to sleep. Luckily that night there was a baseball game on, Indians vs. Yankees. Naturally I was cheering for the Indians as they were not the Yankees and I as a rule do not cheer for the Yankees. I don’t remember which game was on, I know I should probably remember this since I guess it would be my first ever memory as an Indians fan but I don’t. All I know after that night I was an Indians fan. I didn’t understand it but I was and still am. There is something about the Indians that I just love. I can’t put my finger on it but there is something special about them. I know everyone probably thinks it is all because of Grady Sizemore but it’s not. If that were the case I would have been a Red Sox fan at that point because my favorite player back then was JD Drew who was and still is on the Red Sox. However back then I hated the Red Sox only a little less than the Yankees. For some reason I was drawn to the Indians that offseason and I have been a diehard fan ever since.
