The Sky is Falling


I guess 5 no hit innings just don't buy what it used to. Daisuke Matsuzaka went 5 innings, 6 K's, and no hits. The fact he walked 5 guys has apparently made every sports writer and columnist into Chicken Little.


It's Spring Training guys. He pitched NO HIT BALL for 5 innings. So he walked a few guys: big freaking deal. Did they score? No. Did it cause him to lose focus? No. Do the 5 walks mean he will turn into Rick Ankiel at Yankee Stadium come July? The answer, I guess, is yes if you read the Boston sports people.


I swear, if I were a Red Sox player, I would boycott these morons all year. I don't think they can function unless they are stirring up the pot and causing trouble. From Manny to Theo to Tito to Drew to Dice-K. I'm done with the lot of them: they can write their fertilizer all they want, and from here on out I refuse to read it. Hacks, all of them, and I'm not giving their ego the satisfaction of reading their babble anymore. I'll read ESPN.com and Schill's blog to get my info, and watch NESN to keep up. I'm tired of all the negative B.S.


Come October, I firmly believe the Sox will be in the post season, and Matsuzaka will have won a minimum of 16 games. CHB and the rest can all go ask Slappy how his therapy is playing out.


For Pete's sake, can the season start already?

And you thought Sooner football was tempermental. Thats why they call it a perfect game, it doesn't happen everyday! Is bean stalk bunken with you

Ted D said...

Nope: he must be reading up on his Haiku lessons. Bub, Sooner football has nothing on these Boston writers: these guys can't write a positive story. They have convinced me.

I gotta ask it again: highlights?

scott h said...

Just a little touch of sun to brighten the day .

Kaylee said...

Nice post Scott you gotta learn how to spell I just read your posts.I am bad but you uh well need work too.He pitched great today:)

scott h said...

Kaylee did you bump your head at school today? I believe I was dead on last post. But I have decided to not correct you until you reach 50 mistakes in one post!

Kaylee said...

Scott:No I am on spring Break i am talking about the ones you made on TEDS last post!

Kaylee said...

Hey scott if you think i am bad here dont ever read my blog!Thanks for cutting me slack:)

Tex said...

hey Ted. long day today..getting ready to head to bed. in Lubbock this week.

I hate boston sportwriters. Im ready for baseball!!

Ted D said...

Me to Tex. Both the hating and getting ready to head to bed.

Bub, I don't care how you spin it, you are a man in his 40's getting highlights: you are in crisis.

And where did Oat Bran go?

Kaylee said...

Scott your wife is actually gunna let you do that?

Kaylee said...

//And where did Oat Bran go? //


HE ran before I called him a squirrel.

Tex said...

scottie...you are NOT a Sooner fan are YOU???? i had higher hopes

Kaylee said...

careful TEX I got yelled out for putting the "ie" at the end of his name.

John said...

Hey Ted, I got up at 5 a.m. to watch Dice-K today and you're exactly right. He's ready and I'm willing to bet the closer issue will go away on the days he pitches: complete games anyone?:)

Tex said...

Scotty
Scottie
it all sounds the same to me.
besides...if im gonna call matt Matty and ted Tedy
it stands to reason I call Scott Scottie....cos he's different

Ted D said...

Tex, I've got Matty's laptop out and I'm WIRELESS! I've come a long way, huh? John, 5 am? You are a true Red Sox fan. I hope NZ is treating you well.

Thanks to everyone for stopping by. Scott actually has to work for the next few months so it'll be relatively quiet around here during the day. :)

Kaylee said...

I know TEX I WAS JUST WATRNING YOU!

scott h said...

Ok Kaylee you are at 48 and its 4:30 here. Yes highlites,Sales increase its a proven fact. Ted are you and pencil shavings going to milk this market to death. Come on give us a remote story, live from the bedroom suites dept.

scott h said...

Yep Tex Crimson and Cream or was that crimson and clover . The rest of this group are to young for that one. I'm a fan BUT I can turn it off when season is over I don't bleed Sooner Red. And Texas is just one game not a life style like some here!

Tex said...

just so ya know I am NOT some huge UT fan. I personally like A&M but dont get all into college ball. My college alma mater doesnt even have a football team...they do rank in baseball though. Lamar University in Beaumont..my other degree is from Sam Houston...no teams to brag about..just a nationally known CJ School :)

that Red River Rivalry is TOO much...course its pretty much like the Red Sox vs Yankee.

scott h said...

If you are a sooner basket ball fan you know lamar univ Coach Billy Tubbs came from their to OU in the late 80's best time for OU. Run and Gun style bunch of points. What is your Masters in I think I want one

Kaylee said...

thanks scott wheen I reach 50 i will beware.

Kaylee said...

Hey scott What color you arent going crazy on us are you?!?!

scott h said...

Kaylee First thats 50. Just a little blond highlites

Kaylee said...

Okay Bring it on Scott.I can handle you.Blonde aint bad I see boys at my school with pink and purple so blonde isnt that bad.

Kaylee said...

But seriously can you count 48+1 is not 50.

Kaylee said...

Unless of course,I have the wrong people teaching me math.

scott h said...

Kaylee I would check, If you are required to wear shorts and tennis shoes you might be in gym class not math!

Kaylee said...

scott:I am pretty sure I know the difference!

Tex said...

got my BS in Criminal Justice from Lamar and YES I watched Billy coach many a night! I was in college during the 70's and 80's...single parent so I took the long degree plan.
Got my MS in Criminal Justice Mgt from Sam Houston in Huntsville
im thinking of either getting another MS in Creative Writing or PhD in Social Policy or something like that

scott h said...

Hey Tex thats neat. You are a rare bird working in your degree field! I have a commercial art advertising BA and a psycho minor. The psycho part I use quite a bit!!

Kaylee said...

I am phsyco too okay maybe just crazy but still!

Ted D said...

I get home late and Scotty seems to have taken over as blog administrator. Had to stay late for a dinner tonight, but Ciera rode over with Matt's wife and little girl, so I got to have a dinner date with the prettiest girl in the world.

Scotty, Tex has a masters degree: and here you thought only goofballs like Matt and I were on here this whole time!

Kaylee said...

Goodballs?Thats the perfect category for me:)I gotta do a stupid job interview tommorrow cos my mom is making me get a job.I dont wanta work!

Kaylee said...

I meant goofballs!

Tex said...

i started college in hopes of a Marine Biology degree...marriage and a kid derailed it...changed the degree plan after the divorce since the plan was to go to a college elsewhere..but looks like I still got a job cleaning up the environment. :)

it is odd how so many people get degrees just to pursue other careers. the only thing i woulda done diff was getting a minor in Creative Writing instead of Sociology...but they told us back then you couldnt do anything with it

Kaylee said...

I want to go to a culinary school but,I gotta finish this dumb high school first.

Tex said...

oh and scott Psychobabble is mandatory on the blog sites

Ted D said...

Tex, I've got a BA in broadcast journalism and work in Furniture Sales: I guess if it don't work out I could do the midnight shift at some classic rock station!

I don't think to many people back then could have forseen the internet, a place where even idiots like me get on and write!

You have a gift with the poem thing: And while Matt is right, my eyes do glaze over at anything deeper than a Winnie the Pooh story, I can tell you have a passion for it. I really admire you, as I admire all intelligent people. Just because I'm not one does not mean I can't recognize one!

Hope you are having a good trip.

Kaylee said...

TEX aint that mandatory anywhere you go?!

scott h said...

Tex its amazing what you figure out you would like to do after you stumble around for a few years. I get hung up saying if it wasn't about money I would kmow what I want to do. Ted are you still awake.

Kaylee said...

KNOW IS K-N-O-W Scott.

Ted D said...

Still kicking, but just barely. Working a new post, but the fact my brain won't work is getting in the way. I'd like to be an out of work lottery winner spending my days sleeping and watching baseball games: I'm just to tight to actually buy a ticket.

Oat Bran, on the other hand, plays frequently in the hopes of hitting it big. Meanwhile, you think Baby Caroline gets that new pink dress her Mom wants to buy her?

Kaylee said...

I must say between the comments I make here and over on SG I am lucky I havent gotten my butt kicked yet.

scott h said...

You almost described the plant business! PARTNER. What is oat bran doing? Kaylee the thought of you holding knives and forks kinda scares me

Kaylee said...

Good scott be afraid be very afraid.

Kaylee said...

BTW those are gunna be my famous last words before i die to warn people.

Tex said...

ya know...after my divorce I had to just get a job. my sis was working at a mental health agency..she got me a job working at a residential treatment facility...I met this guy out partying...he was a criminal justice major...the rest is history...funny how life takes a turn. I love what i do...still love nature! and although im not in a govt job for the money...wish the pay was better

and Ted...i am no more intelligent than you. We all have our levels of what we are smart in. You are smart in the most important things in life...Love and Family. I wish I could have found that at a young age....i havent given up hope yet :)

Ted D said...

Glad you caught the hint Bub: I'm telling you, an East coast franchise is just what you need.

Have no idea where hemp is: came by while I was reading to Rakes and picked up the wango tango, so I was figuring he'd jump in sometime.

Kaylee said...

See scott got a taste of the "other" side of me there!

Ted D said...

Tex, if there were some way I could make a living using all the useless sports trivia and tv trivia I have stored in my head, I'd be The Donald: instead, I can't remember to take out the trash.

And trust me, I'm not smart. While trying to use Matt's laptop today, I asked another sales rep what I was doing wrong: turns out, instead of using the Wi Fi whatchamacallit, I was using Matt's memory stick he had in his bag instead!

Toldja I was a moron!

(Beat you to it Raisin Bran: early bird catches the worm.)

scott h said...

Hemp (he he) I like that one! Almost as good as marbles not quite.

scott h said...

Ted I'm telling you, we go on one or two adventures and you will be a freakin funkin wagner

Kaylee said...

//and you will be a freakin funkin wagner//

What the heck is that scott?apparently I aint updated on the adult language people speak these days.

scott h said...

Or you will be a classic rock junkie flipflop wearing hair highlited seasonal worker!

scott h said...

Kaylee that means your head is full of all kinds of knowledge

Kaylee said...

Oh okay.Scott I dont even what you tro predict my future.

Ted D said...

//Or you will be a classic rock junkie flipflop wearing hair highlited seasonal worker!//

WE have a WINNER!

Except for the highlights: little to metro for me.

scott h said...

Kaylee I think you will be a sales rep for the spellcheck company!

Kaylee said...

okay scott You are killing me here you have me laughing nonstop now.I might have to be cos I cant spell on my own.

Ted D said...

Kaylee, cover your ears: I gotta ask Scott a question:

Bub, am I an idiot for just watching that dumb Jimmy Kimmel/Queen Latifa movie on FX because that show "Dirt" comes on tonight and they are hinting at a Courtney Cox/Jennifer Anniston kiss and I was scared I'd miss it?

Just wondering.

Kaylee said...

I am not reading that last comment of yours TED after reading the first sentence.

Tex said...

hey ya I forgot to tell ya. I went walking around this manmade lake here in lubbock at the Buddy Holly Park..anyway...ducks, geese AND prairiedogs! I walked then sat watching the ducks..started laughing to myself thinking...but that dont mean you can call me a treehugger

Tex said...

good lordie TED! what IS IT about "that" scenario men find attractive?

Kaylee said...

//ducks, geese AND prairiedogs//

I ptrefer the Viscious animals like the sharks,wolfs,coyotes.Okay I think ya get it!

Ted D said...

Tex, did you just turn into Matt?

Just curious.

I pick on the boy 'cause I love him: he just makes it to easy.

And Tex, I like nature just as much as the next person: just enjoy it from the comfort of my air conditioned house, thats all!

Kaylee said...

I prefer the viscious people too:)

Ted D said...

//good lordie TED! what IS IT about "that" scenario men find attractive?//

Tex, If I could tell you that, I'd quit schlepping furniture for a living a go into writing self help books: Angie asks me the same thing, and I have no answer.

Hmm.., wonder where highlights went?

Kaylee said...

I truely need to get a life before I reveal too much about my I dont need to give my life story.

Tex said...

ted you'd be surprised at my other poems I write. im really devastated right now at losing many poems off my laptop this weekend...its like part of yourself gone

Kaylee said...

I like any poems anybody else writes because I cant write myself.

Ted D said...

What happened Tex? Did it crash?

Man, that sucks. Did you have them saved anywhere else?

(Like I know how to save something on a computer. And where did Scott go? Is it lights out time at the Shady Hills retirement village already?)

Tex said...

work computer crashed sunday...i write while on the road. anyway...its just a bummer.

im watching comedy central...whats that guy?? not foxworthy or cable guy...he's fucking hilarious

Ted D said...

Tex, if Stacy reads that last comment, she will die. And I'm dead serious.

Kaylee said...

alright my sister is killing me with this kenny chesney and britney spears crap shes listening to SHE is gunna pay if she keeps listening to it.............enough things make me insane besides that.

Tex said...

ok

Kaylee said...

//ok//

Are you saying that to me or TED?

Tex said...

computer is messing with me...keep trying to delete ..

Ted D said...

Tex.... are you OK?..... Keep fading in.... out...

What are you trying to delete? Your comment? I can delete it if you want.

scott h said...

Ok I'm back Sonya is ebay selling and I could not get her off(the computer). did Tex just drop the F BOMB. F BOMB, F BOMB. Marbles is meaningless now! Kaylee I think it is your bedtime. Tex we can fix that laptop!

Ted D said...

I am, after all, BLOG ADMINISTRATOR here.

Ted D said...

Scott, thanks for clarifying: that is my sister you know. You never answered my Cox/Anniston question. I'm not gonna censor Tex: was just letting her know Stacy's death may very well be on her head.

Tex said...

ted delete yourself...my computer being in lubbock...bad wireless connections...who knows..i cant seem to delete it

Kaylee said...

Scott,with all the caffeine I have drank today maybe I will go to bed at 1am or 2 am if im lucky:)

scott h said...

TED for the love of god tivo that. My tivo is recording every nci sci lmnop show thats on!

Ted D said...

Tex, I'm not gonna delete it: I'll just tell Stacy to skip this one. She goes to bed at 8:30 anyway, so no harm, no foul.

Highlights, are you gonna answer my question or not? And what is Sonya selling on EBAY? Is it as good as Manny's grill?

Ted D said...

Forgot to TIVO, and it's in the bedroom, where Angie has been fast asleep for the last 2 hours.

Who say's romance is dead?

Kaylee said...

nothings as good aas that TED!

scott h said...

I answered you. We started last month kinda for fun. I sold a hall and oates special edition album for 52.00 can you believe that. She has been selling the kids old clothes.

Ted D said...

All right everyone: I'm just about gone. This real work is killing me.

New post coming up, and I hope everyone has a great night.

scott h said...

kaylee you sound like a sheep,assss

Ted D said...

Did I tell you Hall and Oates did a concert last night at Furniture Market? Seriously they did. I went home, but they had a pretty good turnout.

How the mighty have fallen.

Night Bub.

scott h said...

TEd its only 11:00 out their!

scott h said...

Kaylee said...

Thank you scott!I take that as a compliment!Scott where do you live?

Ted D said...

I know man, but I got up at 6 and got home at 8:20.

I'm gassed, with 5 more days to go. If I made any money at this thing it would be worth it, intead it's just long hours and no pay.

By the way, DIRT was WAY overrated.

I'm very dissapointed.

scott h said...

Alright Ted talk to you tomorrow. Kaylee no way you might get mad and runaway from home and show up on my doorstep.Remember I already have a Kaleigh for a daughter

Kaylee said...
