The Sports Equivalent Of Hitting The Lottery

Team USA beat Team Canada in the WBC today, with Youk hitting a bomb to help contribute to the win.

As I type, Team Venezuela is playing Team Italy on my television, Pedroia is somewhere spouting off at someone and The Commander, at least in my mind, is stomping around his house yelling expletives at the top of his lungs about A-Rod, Joe Maddon and his whacked out glasses, and why it's so hard to find Captain Crunch Peanut Butter cereal at the grocery store these days.

Have I mentioned how happy I am that baseball is back?

You'll take anything the slighest bit baseball related at this point, won't you.

Sad, really. :)

Yes. Yes I will, Stacy. Shoot, I'd settle for video of Tito hitting fungo's to Iggy Suerez right about now.

See? Tex gets me. :)

I'll join you in that dance! Two days of live baseball on my tv. - what more can you ask?!

Dude, you crack me up! Glad you're a happy pappy now.

BTW, how does the lotto tie in with this post? I'm slow, I know, but I can't figure it. If seeing the WBC is the equivalent to winning the lotto, the jackpot must be very meager indeed!

Ted D said...

It pretty much doesn't get better until it's the regular season, Beth. So dance away.

Mattie, I have no idea what I'm talking about. Have you not figured this out yet?

the lotto figures into any convo

Thanks for the back up, Sis.

Our little brother needs his head examined.
