It's all over but the trading

I seem remember the local paper used to have a smiling Chief Wahoo on the masthead when the Indians won and a frowning Wahoo with a crumpled feather when they lost. We would be seeing that sad little chief plenty this year.

One morning last week when I woke up our five year old, the baseball nut, he asked "Did the Indians win last night, Dad?" "No son, they lost" A very matter-of-fact observation followed from the tyke, "They stink!"

And so the rich family tradition continues.

Pandora Reminds Me...

that Del Amitri's "The Last To Know" may be the most perfect song of the 1990's.

Women's Professional Fast-Pitch

Last week as John and I were surfing looking for any baseball in the afternoon (John thinks we can watch any MLB team at anytime of the day) we came across Women's fast pitch. I thought it was the Women's College World Series so I stopped. It was not - apparently they have a professional league now. It was entertaining as the centerfielder for Philadelphia was making some unbelievable catches. The thing that I was mostly disturbed about was the shape some of these women were in. I know I'm completely out of shape but I'm not a professional baseball player. Yikes! Marla Hootch looks like Marilyn Monroe compared to these girls!

US Open

Holy cow - what a tournament! It has been so awesome and we get a bonus 18 holes tomorrow! Forget Sesame Street - we are watching golf!

Sara Evans

I read on yesterday that Sara wants to have another baby with her soon to be husband Jay. Keep in mind between the two of them they have 7 children. Yikes! I guess she figures between her and Jay's looks the kid couldn't look too bad.

Good job Cliff Lee!

Win #10 last night. I'm glad Wedge let him come back out after the rain delay. Who would have guessed it. It would be nice to get Fausto healthy and CC pitching consistently and our bat showing up everyday - we could put a run together - I'm hoping and praying. The way they keep doing the Buffalo shuffle it looks like they are pulling all the strings to get something going. We will just have to wait and see.
