I saw Bush get boo'd at the Opening Day at RFK too. You'd think I was a Nats fan.

GO Red Sox.

ps - stupid Bush can actually throw.
This is a check to see if I have any male readers. Please comment if you're here?

-no good title-

In a poker tournament played on Thursday, I found that if I had a small pocket pair and just called after an honest hesitation over raising, I would hit a set on the flop.
More times than not, I'd be against a flush draw if I was called.
I believe I won each one but don't remember clearly.

Was a good spring break....Back to work in the mornin'

- back to work on a few different posts:

OPENING DAY....again!!
My First View of the New NATIONALS' STADIUM. It's from waterside (left) of the new DOT HQ building (beautiful building btw).

I can't wait to bring you play-by-play action. I'll have to figure out how to do it via cellphone so I do that during the season.
What I really need is for XM and Sirius to get their shit together and load baseball on my Stilletto! How money would it be to listen the game via satelite while at the game? That's why I like the thought of minor league games.

See ya after the game....well, maybe another post is coming b4 it. we'll see what kinda time I have. Gotta do another 1273 calories ;)

See ya from the game. Not sure where season ticket seats are but WOO!!

RED SOX Update: Preseason win but where is significant. Tell me why and win a prize.
In more special news, in their last pre-season warm-up/mid-beginning of season due to Japan/back in USA = Red Sox beat the Dodgers. Sorry Alyssa but there's a reason why we're the defending World Champs and have all but 2 returning starters. How do you improve diamonds and platnium? I rest my case.

Play Ball
Earth Hour - 8pm
Please participate in saving the earth's resources by turning off your lights and other energy consuming products for 1 hour tonight. One freakin' hour without power. You can't do it?

Wah. I don't care. blah blah....
Dude, usually I could give a fuck myself but for some odd reason I'm behind this one.
Get behind's one hour to save your own lungs, life, blah blah..

RACE TRAIN - Daniel Brafman

Happy Friday to ya!
Happy Birthday Scottie my boy!
I love you little guy. You are the best thing in my world =*!
(K, just know)
Take it easy today
Song of the day:
On bended knee is no way to be free
Lifting up an empty cup I ask silently
That all my destinations will accept the one that's me
So I can breathe

Circles they grow and they swallow people whole
Half their lives they say goodnight to wives they'll never know
Got a mind full of questions and a teacher in my soul
And so it goes

Don't come closer or I'll have to go
Owning me like gravity are places that pull
If ever there was someone to keep me at home
It would be you

Everyone I come across in cages they bought
They think of me and my wandering but I'm never what they thought
Got my indignation but I'm pure in all my thoughts
I'm alive

Wind i my hair I feel part of everywhere
Underneath my being is a road that disappeared
Late at night I hear the trees they're singing with the dead

Leave it to me as I find a way to be
Consider me a satellite forever orbiting
I knew all the rules but the rules did not know me


3 Hours
Back to Baseball Breakfast

1-0 in the Japan series, the Sox took down the A's in this first struggle of the season. With 5 lead changes, great game. Hope everybody set their Tivos.

Still working on a few other posts but my legs both ache and are numb. It's a strange sensation but i know they're feeling the 22 miles from today.

Wait for the newer post. 6am. Game Time. PLAY BALL!

Baseball for Breakfast!!
When the Red Sox take on Oakland in Japan, Dice-K gets his chance to show how he's going to shoulder the team by being the #1 pitcher to start the 2008 season and how Sox will get it done for at least 20 more days as Beckett will be on the 15-DL =(

In other and more of the 'who cares' news, the New York Yankees who I can't believe we are now required to say their name as of there is another Yankees team people would be yapping about in their best Brooklyn/Queens impersonation.

The Washington Nationals will weave their way through the rubble surrounding their new stadium and will try to take on the other league.

Good luck to us and let's....

Scene in a Crystal Ball
Yea ok. It's a well-known fact that if you're famous enough, kiss enough ass the team in one and probably payway or another, you can play an inning of baseball.

Shit, Jordon did it....and don't tell me that guy was really going to be a pro ball player; please. I'm sure there are more too, but who cares. Let em. I mean, if you could, wouldn't you? Ok maybe not with the scumbags of MLB but another certain current world champion team

So Yay for the over-the-hype, done-with-his-career, monster-of-bullshitters, Billy Crystal and his spout with the New York cheating Yankees.

That's what I really wanna address here (since it hasn't been written about time and time again).

The Yankee organization has been a tradition of purchasing players to make the playoffs and win the World Series. From the Babe to the Rocket and I have no problem with that. Free agency the way it is, unimaginable salaries....this is the way that our national pasttime has gone: Those with the most money, Win.

Shocking given that's the way America has decided to go: Off the deep-end into Capitalism.

The US Dollar is so low that you'd think the tresurary department will print the Doritos' slogan on the new 5 dollar bill (printed and released today, in your stores pronto!)

That's a whole other post, GO SOX!!!

Washington Nats from the Washington Post/DCist

Nats Pick Stadium Music (Updated)

Yes please. (Photo by Sam Kittner)

Mea major culpa, full list of song choices below, Chuck Brown is indeed included, apologies to the Nats.

This asking-the-fans-to-pick-the-music trend has been percolating for a few years--remember last spring, when fans were allowed to pick David Wright's at-bat music--but the Nationals have now entered the American Idol era with a wide-ranging musical plea to their fans. From this morning's release:

Through an online voting system, fans may select the song the team plays after a Nationals Home Run, during the Seventh Inning Stretch (immediately following baseball's traditional "Take Me Out To The Ballgame") and after a Nationals victory....

Fans may choose from a selection of songs, including "Because We Can" by Fat Boy Slim or "Song 2 (Woo Hoo)" by Blur for the Home Run song, and "Build Me Up Buttercup" by The Foundations or "Shout" from Otis Day and the Knights for the Seventh Inning Stretch. Choices for the Nationals Victory Song include "Beautiful Day" by U2 and "How Do You Like Me Now" by Toby Keith.

UPDATE: The full list of choices:

Home Runs: Because We Can (Fatboy Slim), Bustin Loose (Chuck Brown), Kernkraft 400 (Zombie Nation), Off We Go--Air Force Theme (Robert Crawford), Song 2-Woo Hoo (Blur).

7th Inning Stretch: Build Me Up Buttercup (The Foundations), Rock Me Gently (Andy Kim), September (Earth Wind & Fire), Shout (Otis Day and the Knights), The Gambler (Kenny Rogers), Twist And Shout (the Beatles), YMCA (Village People), You Gotta Have Heart (Damn Yankees The Musical).

Post-game Victories: Beautiful Day (U2), Celebration (Kool and the Gang), Dancing In The Streets (Martha Reeves and the Vandelas), How Do You Like Me Now (Toby Keith), Rock and Roll Part 2 (Gary Glitter).

I guess I'll endorse Blur, Buttercup and none of the above in the three categories. Seriously, couldn't we work one Chuck Brown tune in here? Bad Brains? Minor Threat? Even the lamentable Good Charlotte chaps at least have the benefit of being local.

If "Shout" becomes the 7th Inning tradition....well, I just feel like with a new stadium, a new team, a new quadrant, a new outfield, a new scoreboard and a new concessionaire, it might befit the team not to choose a 7th Inning anthem that is regularly played in every sports venue in the country.

I call that the audacity of hope, and I believe that yes, we can seize our future. But that's the beauty of democracy, I guess. Voting begins tomorrow at 9 am; no word if write-ins are accepted, but I'd be curious to hear your musical additional ideas.

- Andy's Party?
Silly Rabbit
Trix are for kids. But as of late, sugar is out. 1/3rd in some cereals. But even 1/3 less sugar is too much.

For example while the Froot Loops are a wonderful way to wake you up (without Folgers), they scream SUGAR to the extent that your mouth needs to reject 35% of to not wanna hurl.

-Insert Crispix-

This is the perfect cereal.
The better-than-Cherrios cereal.
The right cereal to do the job:
It calms it the fuck down.
I don't know if it's the entire 35% as that will be determined on the Crispix-to-Loop ratio.

Ever do this problem in your statistics class kids? Yea me neither. oh well. Calm down.

Just like the cereal every person needs to 'calm it the fuck down'. That the technical term we use around the homestead.

People just get way too excited over the smallest shit. I guess who am I to say what's important in someone else's world and that they shouldn't get so excited over something happening...or not happening. Whatever happens, happens and try not to look behind the curtain.

This guy needs to calm the F down!

Let's just pretend it's not Monday
Am I learning yet? -self-poker-tip
Agression works.

Strong bet the turn knowing you'll receive at least one caller,
the river should be played with the utmost of confidence.

This works if you don't see the same thing on their face. That's when the hand begins.

Last week left me up $40 after winning $80 Wednesday but losing $40 on Friday.

At any rate, I learned a bit what Charlie does and am a better player than Jared. Sang will get bored late which is good.
Against Frank, you can play the man but mostly, I need to play my cards.
Watch my play and what I give away and the purpose of acting a certain way. Focus along with discipline.

Ya Hoo!! I'm a bot

If I hear Yamo Be There one more time, I'm gonna Yamo burn this place to the ground
- 40 year old Virgin.

And if fucking Yahoo asked me to verify an email I'm sending myself so I am sure that I'm not a bot,
it's curtains to the whole internet.

I mean holy shit and jesus christ,
stop fuckin' asking me,
you pesky middle school-aged program!

What the hell, you don't get enough attention from Microsoft?

There is no reason why it should take me 3 tries to see through your fucking number scribble. By the time I send it, I could give a fuck and makes me second guess (and third guess) if the email is even worth it!

"Wah. I didn't get purchased so now I'm gonna be all cranky to those that haven't completely switched over to Gmail yet"
Yea, that'll make us stay. That'll help you sell the company. "Hey, we're so secure that you can't even send email!"

I don't have enough bullshit going on that I need my email giving me crap?
Skins and Bones, Obsession Part 2 - Video
....and they say that Idiots live!
Where's George?
After once again not being successful with the Tivo,
I decided to enjoy entering more bills into Where's George. and that ..what is that, you say?

Go find out!

Then again, I took yesterday off from training. I didn't exactly want to but we had company in town. I guess with 76 days left, I can't really afford to miss many more days; if any. I'm sure to take some days to rest as it's good for any person under training but I think that doing something 6 days a week isn't too much to ask for.

I've been good with 5 but it doesn't feel like enough and I feel guilty if too many of them are bunched together.
---hours later-----
Good run. Chest a little tight but good stuff.

[18:49] Kbear: KRF i could do without though. makes me think of kermit.
Song: Newest Obsession
Lately I've been measuring
Seems my time is growing thin
Wind me up and watch me spin
Watch me spin
