6 ack em flight tomorrow, meaning a 3:30 wake up, so I'm gonna tap out early.

Rain delay!

Hey, as long as there's no actual baseball: has everyone seen this RE2PECT ad? I might just buy a pair of Nikes (something I haven't done in about 15 years).

(I particularly like how 'RE2PECT' is a kind of converse of our term 'NunE5'.)

[3] Just watched that. If they'd done it without the celebs (but kept Lester and Jordan) I would have loved it. But it's still good. Don't be surprised if that ends up appearing in game threads when he does good from here on out.

That's not a Nike commercial, that's actually Jordan's own brand (Jeter is a spokesman). Classy tribute.

Stanton is a MONSTER.

[5] I think Jordan's brand actually is Nike. Look here.

[6] Yikes..I never saw the Josh Hamilton at OYS Derby, was that as impressive? Really looked like Stanton was going to clear the stadium..

Muchmuchmuchmuchmuch too large a dose of Chris Berman for my taste.

Chris Berman is probably the biggest reason I *don't* watch the HRD. Even with the mute button on, that voice, that HR call is grating on my grey matter! ;-P
