|03:09 pm - Disappointed|
Is anyone else disappointed by the World Series? I've never been a fan of domes in baseball, but to have a world series postponed mid-game and then resumed 3 nights later is icky.
Of course, Hoppie is quick to point out that any other game would have been called at the end of the 5th when the Phillies were ahead, so they would have won. I don't know. It just feels wrong to me. Another legacy of the Selig era.
1. Give me a compliment. A real, meaningful compliment. Not something like: OMG I LOVE YOU YOU ARE TOTALLY AWESOME!!!11
2. Post this in your journal so I can compliment you.
Another action/adventure dream last night
I was a 36 year old stud pretending to be a high schooler so I could figure out what was going on. I did. There was a bunch of aliens who called themselves Perz...something or other. I remember the P and the z and know they weren't right next to each other. There might also have been a b in the name. I befriended the head cheerleader who wasn't a high schooler either. She was one of the aliens and I used her to get close to them. One of the best scenes is when my characters says, "Look I'm a 36 year old. I obviously DON'T belong in High School. You clearly don't either. What's going on here?" and then she told me; which just goes to show that sometimes honesty is the best policy.
Then I broke into the conference room, stole the huge diamond for the laser gun thing and pretend to leap out the window on the far side of the room. They "followed" me out the window, while I actually sat in a chair in the conference room and pretended I belonged there. After they sent people out of the window I supposedly went through and out the door I'd come in by, I went out a window on a different side of of the room and headed to the project site where a scientist was eagerly awaiting the diamond. I gave it to him and asked something, and he told me he was enthusiastically waiting for his partners, brokers in world piece. I asked if they were the Perz....people and of course they were. I explained that they weren't interested in peace so much as they were enslaving the world. He was chagrined. I explained that I'd gotten the diamond from them and he could continue his experimenting, they'd never think to look for the diamond exactly where they'd taken it. They'd be looking for me though. I forgot what happened after that.
Current Mood: sleepy
You inspired me to soliefriends an experience based on this post and something that happened at my meeting yesterday.
I'm going to talk about the rule change briefly tonight. Let's just say this isn't one we can pin on Selig.
Regardless, it will be associated with him as commissioner and held up in the future as another example of how he has mismanaged baseball.
It would be incorrectly associated with him as commissioner and held up in the future as another example of how he has mismanaged baseball.
I'm all for virtually kicking Selig in the balls at any turn, but this one isn't his.
I called the world series win at the end of march :)
there were games rained out in 2006. bud bent the rules to make sure the game resumed. i was pleased with the ending.
Fixed the HTML. (before I got your post! Therefore I win!! I mean, uh, thanks for the heads up.)
Having had no dog in the race (and genuinely not caring who won is an interesting feeling), it seemed like it began with a spark and died in a disappointing fizzle.
i'm usually an NL guy. however, if the cubs were in the WS, i'd be for the AL team, even if it were a team i really hated because the media always televises their games. my hate for the cubs trumps all!
I appreciated the fact that you are attentive to others and their needs. Their real needs and not just in a Hi how are you today way - but in a really, how ARE you doing way.
On the other subject -- I am just glad that so many peeps WATCHED baseball for a change in that rain shorted last game. Go Baseball!
Sadly I missed it. Maahj Jongg. I'd have missed it even if it was the Red Sox (although I'd have it on play-by-play on my cellphone, instead of just checking in a few times discretely under the table.)
