Doubleheader today! Was pretty crap in the first game, popping stuff up all over the place, which is not like me – I’m the guy who swings at pitches over my head and still manages to pound them into the dirt. We won both games though, so it’s all good.

I resorted to going back to my funky pigeon-toed stance with the leg-kick, and that seemed to get me back into a ground-ball/line-drive groove, thankfully. 6-12 with a double, 5 runs, and 2 RBI overall. Not a whole lot of action in the outfield- one catch, and a few more I couldn’t quite get to. Threw the ball better than usual, but didn’t actually throw anyone out…

Current stats: 6 games, .459 BA (17-37), 3 2B, 9 runs, 9 RBI.

    Hey, that’s a good picture. You won even though you were drinking beer? I hope no-one knocked over their beer. Good show.

    I’m still debating whether I want to or not. I did look into how much the flight tickets would be. I’m working on trying to pay the Mcard so I can put the tickets and car rental on that.

    I was thinking of landing in Baltimore, MD, then driving to Philadelphia. My car-pool rider told me it would be worth it, monetarily.

    Nah, no beer for me. Strictly water, followed by my traditional postgame Dr Pepper.

    I have no travel recommendations, but I do hope you can make it.

    I’m still hoping to make Eschacon, depends on when work can let me out of my box. :)

    completely OT, Eli, but these came across the transom on an old email account:

    Banisters J. Hostages
    Omnibus S. Knee

    Thought you should know.

    You must use your Jedi powers to think yourself *outside* the box, des.

    It’s just not fair. Tigre gets *all* the cool spammer names. Hell, I don’t hardly get any spam at all now, except, like, Christian dating and Christian debt help. We’ll just forget that I’m a financially solvent Jewgnostic with a girlfriend, hmm?

    I can only play virtually! Damn!

    I’ve been getting those, too. I wonder where they got my email address?
