No Rest For The Wicked As Another Imperial Campaign Begins....

I going to try and temper my hatred for West Coast games just this once.....

Wow, it's gonna be a long night.

The NCAA's and opening night on the West Coast vs Oakland. The baseball gods are testing me early.

I wanted to join some friends and watch the games out somewhere. But call me the anti-R. Kelly , cuz my body's telling me no and my mind's telling me no.

Will outside forces have a say in my eventual whereabouts? We'll know soon enough.

I hope you stayed up for that!!! I wrote about on my blog this morning, but have you thot about what Zito's ERA is today? Ouch! Ha ha, I can't stop laughing, because I've always thot he was a bit of a douche, doing Yoga, playing his guitar, being all milque-toasty...not my fave. I do feel a bit bad for how hard he's gonna have to work for the rest of the season after that performance, but Whew! Did I ever have fun last night!!!!!

I didn't care quite so much about the basketball game, since both my fave teams (Georgetown and Gonzaga) were already out, but I suppose I was rooting for UCLA, since not only are they the ones who beat my Zaga Bulldogs, but I hate Florida coach Billy Donovan. Oh well...

Happy Baseball Season!

Darth-
You disappoint me. Despite your multi-sport, multi-time zone fatigue, I thought you would herald the beginning of the baseball season with at least one shot at Red Sox nation.
So since you're a little off your game, I thought I might ignite
things.
I was going through the New York Times Baseball Preview section on Sunday. In it was a piece called "Six Who May Decline." Number 5 among the 6 who may decline was Johnny Damon. Below is what was written about Mr. Damon;

"Raising his batting average for a second consecutive season made it possible to ignore that Damon declined in on base percentage and slugging percentage" Essentially he gave up 23 walks and 10 home runs for 18 more singles. He is 32, and 8 straight years of more than 580 at-bats could take their toll soon. Likely to be hampered by the switch to Yankee Stadium from Fenway Park, Damon may become an expensive mistake."

Remember, before you launch into one of your endless diatribes one season does not a season make, and Damon struck out in his first offical at bat. Of course you'll probably say it didn't count because he wasn't wearing pinstripes.

Would you pass the Coco Crisps please?

Game on big fella!
