Move along, nothing to see here...

There will be no blog entry today due to my attitude. I'm having one of those days where everything little thing is going wrong and seemingly every minute that passes brings some new devilry.

It started when, for some unknown reason, I woke up at 0200 this morning to watch the Red Sox get their asses kicked by the hated New York Yankees (and their $200 million payroll). It has gotten continually worse from there. Ever have one of those days where each succession of events makes you start to think that the Man above is toying with your emotions? That's my day so far.

So come back tomorrow when I'm in a better mood. Or don't. I don't care.

I used to date a girl who was such a constant bitch that I once told her: "I swear, you've got reverse-PMS...every 28 days, you get nice for a few days..."

I can't imagine you being in a bad mood. It's just the opening game & today there's another one scheduled so hopefully their 9-2 lost on Monday will be reversed .
Don't hate me if I'm a Yankee Fan :P

Want some cheese with that whine?

Rik said...

Mel - I'm sorry, but as a Yankees fan, I must hate you now.

eThib - You are primitive to water.

Mel said...

You musta really hate me now.....3-4 Yankee wins again :P

Rik said...

Is somebody speaking on here? I can't hear anybody, especially any Yankees fans who might be on here...

Not sure if you have read this , but I thought it'll cheer u up a bit.

10 Reasons Baseball Is a Weird Sport

Baseball is the American national pastime and many people take the game rather seriously ( Just like my friend Rik :P ) . In our earnest dedication, we may sometimes lose sight of some of the game's striking peculiarities. So let's take a step back for a moment and review the top 10 reasons baseball is one weird sport.

1. If a batter fails two-thirds of the time, they're still considered an excellent batter. It's too bad this standard isn't applied to everything else in life.

2. It is legal to "steal" in this game. This is, perhaps, a questionable example for children.

3. If you aren't such a good hitter, you can have a pinch hitter bat for you. If you aren't such a fast runner, you can have someone--a pinch runner--come in and run for you. At what point, you might wonder, is a team entirely comprised of "pinch" players?

4. There's a rule preventing pitchers from spitting on the ball. They can spit anywhere else they like, apparently.

5. If a batter walks with the bases loaded, he is credited with an RBI (Run Batted In). That's right: even though he didn't hit the ball.

6. The game is played on dirt and grass, but if the ball gets dirty, it is replaced with a new clean ball.

7. If a batter accidentally hits the catcher when swinging, it's the catcher's fault, even if the catcher gets injured. The batter is awarded a base. The catcher gets an apology, if he's lucky.

8. The coaches and managers wear the same uniforms as the players.

9. When a pitcher walks a batter, the batter jogs to first base. Incongruous, but it is a nice show of effort.

10. The 7th-inning stretch makes baseball the only sport where spectators must take part in calisthenics.
