First Things First!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of our FOUNDERS, JimCrikket!!!
(I figured saying Founder was a nod to his more senior status )
Another game of baseball that I probably won’t get to see but.. maybe I’ll get in toward the end.. I’m really intrigued to see how Deduno fairs against this Rays team. I have to admit that I respect what the Rays do a LOT (sometimes more than my own team) and friendly association (competition) can’t hurt if we are able to glean something from the meetings!
And who knew that it would FEEL like Florida in Minnesota while the boys were on the road!

So I popped my head in to the game early to find a run deficit – yelled at the boys to fix that by the time I returned. Which I will give them credit for – they did! They even had a one run lead when I returned! And then I had to again… Maybe it’s my fault for not giving them further instructions to KEEP the lead until I got back again.. or maybe I shouldn’t have left but it is funny how life keeps interfering with baseball lately.
Oh well.. same time, same place tomorrow..
