Don’t you just hate the wait



My next entry is my 100th this season ! I didn’t think I knew that many words. Actually there are a few more floating around the internet that I can’t seem to find, but I digress.

It’s no joke when your craving a smoke.  At one point today today I actually felt my skin crawling, straight up man, wierd.

Hey, if your young and reading this, and you don’t smoke.

 DON”T EVER pick up a cigarette EVER. You’ll spend the rest of you life trying to put it down. I’ll make it. Tomorrow will be a better day for me.

Nuff said on that for the moment.

Funny, Colorado was actually quiet today. Why was it so quiet you ask? Because…



 Ok, I was going to go into this Boston Red Sox one liner, but I do believe they’re feeling the pain today. Besides,  I’m the type of person who’ll  knock you down a few knotches, but I wont grind your face into the ground.

Boston, the healing process starts today.

Bet the plane ride back to Boston was depressing, or was it Josh?

You were what at least a mile high up in the air right? It’s an elite club.

 Phillie is getting my support for this World Series. As I said before, no particular reason.

 I figured I’d join a few of my buddies this postseason instead of go against them.

 Plus, only one World Series in 125 years. The Phillies are still hungry.FunnyMathFractionsProblem.jpg


I’m finding this Joe Maddon guy an odd but interesting fella. Every now and then you need a dorky guy with a different style to shake up the establishment a little, and his funny math has made for some interesting watercooler chatter..

And rightly so, wonder if he is available for tutoring?

   The wife and I are big Broncos fans.

 Go figure huh, tonights game against New England was one of the worst Broncos games I have ever seen. It was ugly from the first play, and went straight down the crapper from there.

Final Score New England 41, Denver 7. Ouch..

It’s not like it was on Monday Night Football or anything. Hello America we suck. Just look.

I’ve got a feeling the Barrel man is home with some warm pants on. Because it’s not worth freezing your “boys” when they play like that…D

Wake up Phillies, Tampa Bay is here to stay

10/19/08 10:10 MST – I officially smoked my last cigarette today..Anyone who has been through this ordeal, any advice or help would be cool..Thanks

What a game. I was glued to my seat. Red Sox were in it to win it till the very last out. Anyone else sick of  that Poltergeist commercial?

 I guess now I can see why nine = eight. Who can argue with Joe’s math? Dude looks like a genius now.

Is Joe Maddon sporting some variation of a Mohawk??

One more thing, who the hell picked Bon Jovi to be the band for MLB? Bon Jovi? Come on. Remember the lyrics from his last hit. ” when the world gets in my way, I say, have a nice day” He should have retired after releasing that crap.

AC/DC wasn’t available? How about ZZ Top? Shoot, Night Ranger or even Michael Jackson would have been a  better choice than Bon Jovi. I’d rather hear a country singer than his bubble gum rock. Bon Jovi singing for baseball is like the Backstreet boys sing for Hockey. Not a good mix.   I’ll deal this year,  but don’t even think of him next year.

1. Karmic justice for the last World Series last year, it still hurts.

2. Not having to watch Youkilus at bat for at least five months. The dudes batting stance is creepy.

3. Now that the Boston is finished the rest of the Country can buy some double bubble gum. Terry Francona had the nations supply shipped to his house.

4. In your face Josh Beckett, ha, haha haha. Yes I know it’s childish, but it feels good.

5. The mob of Boston fans who live in Colorado will finally be silenced, at least for a few months.

Good because I’ve had an entire year of it.


I’m actually glad that Boston gave Tampa a run for their money. Up until these last couple of losses to Boston, the Rays looked unstoptable. Now I’ve seen that this Rays team can be beat. It just isn’t going to be easy. I remember what the time off before the World Series did to the Rockies last season. I’m hoping the Phillies don’t follow that path.  

Rays 3, Red Sox 1.

Congrats to the Tampa Bay Rays, The winner of the 2008 ALCS. Wake up Phillie, you better be ready for this team…Cause they’re ready for you…I can’t wait for Wednesday…DThumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Green Floppy Hat.JPG
