Well, so far, we are looking pretty damn good I’m telling you. We pitch, we hit, and we run. I mean what more could you ask for as a starter than to go out and by the second inning have a three run cushion or even more. Anyway, it has been going really well for me and for the team. Oh, and just to let you all know, Matt Thayer is now in Lake Elsinore with me, so if our articles look at all alike, then....BACK OFF!
Not a lot happens differently each day and now that we are in the same place we can just cheat off each other and write the same thing. HA! Do sump bout it!
I thought that it would be appropriate that I gave everybody out there a picture of my dog just so all you thugs out there looking to break into my house would know, hey, Bella be watchin’ the house, and Bella be takin’ a chunk outcha ass you get too close. I know that it’s hard to believe, with her posture and her rugged outside, but Bella is a lot tougher than she looks.
Anyway, I would like to give a quick hello to my whole
family that is out in
the pole dancers or whatever the case may be.
I’m talking we get down and dirty playing some Halo, which actually consumes at least four or five hours of our days in spring training and is outstanding. I know what some of you might be thinking, “Wow this guy might have a little nerd in him.” Well, there might be a little nerd inside me, but isn’t there in all of us? I mean just sit back and take a second and think where your nerdery might come into play. When you wake up in the morning, get the paper, and you go straight to the business section instead of the sports. I mean let’s be honest, no one is at your house to judge you, you know you don’t know what all those little letters and numbers mean on the stock page, so save it, and pick up the sports page. Or how about when you are driving to work early early in the morning when no one is out on the roads and you’re going to speed limit and using your turn signal when the only other thing on the road with you is the dotted lines. Or how about when you do get to work and you laugh or smile every single morning about your screen saver that you won’t change because you think it is just hilarious.
Lets be honest now, we are all dorks in our own way. So back to the art of the video game.
We have so much fun playing those games we have some guys that even have ear pieces for their cell phones for when they get the dreaded call from the Mrs. If that’s not goofy enough for you, we even call them the ‘X-Box ear piece’ or the ‘Playstation ear piece’. I mean it’s legit. We like to get down and dirty playing some Madden or even some old school James Bond. I’m telling you it passes the time so much faster, and it just keeps me out of any trouble that might be screaming my name. Yeah OK, I don’t know where or why I decided to tell you all that but I thought it was an interesting, fun fact about what we do to pass the time so hey, I’m a nerd. I have my fourth start of the season today and I’m really looking forward to it. I’m just starting to feel completely comfortable with my surroundings, and when I say comfortable with my surroundings, I mean yeah I’m definitely not moving up this year, and I think that I will be ok. This will be the second time that I will face Rancho this year, so I’m assuming that they will be ready for me just as I am ready for them.
Let’s see, for my pre-game ritual, I like to try and
sleep just about as long as I can, ya know, like when you’re laying in
bed, and your back starts to hurt a little bit, but you don’t want to get
up because you already missed the three o’clock Saved By the Bell episode
that was on. Then I like to get up, take a long shower just because
usually by that time on the other days that I am not pitching I’m running
or shagging fly balls, so I like to be in the shower and think about that and
kinda laugh about the fact that it’s my day to do what I want until five.
I eat a good meal, then sit down watch a little TV, and then off to the
Anyway, I think that that will be it for me since, I need to focus on my outing today, and plus, I need to rehearse my response to the local newspapers question, “Fourth homerun tonight, your thoughts?” so I need to start thinking of what to say. Until next week, out.
I miss you Kristen, just a little bit longer and you will be
here, away from all the
