Play Ball!


Spanning the World of Sport: Tough loss for Coach Cal and Kentucky last night, huh?

(Hey, Frank: Yeah, you get props over here.)

Now we turn to baseball. Tonight gives the Cubs, Cardinals for the season opener on ESPN. Tomorrow afternoon at the Stadium, life after Jeter begins with our man Tanaka on the hill against Russell Martin and those douchy Blue Jays.

The sun’s been out the past few days and though it’s still brisk at times, in the sun it’s lovely.

Spring’s here. Happy Pesach, Happy Easter.

Let’s Go Base-ball!

My son is a UW student. That was definitely the best, most satisfying college basketball game I've ever seen.

I think any college player on a team that loses in the Final Four pretty much gets a pass for saying pretty much anything off the top of his head. That must be a soul-crushing experience, especially if you were the favorite.

In Dunedin last week having dinner at a nice restaurant on the water. Russell Martin was at the table in front of us. He was clean shaving. I thought he was going back to the Yanks.
Tomorrow ABD applies. "On Wisconsin"

Thanks to k-zone it looks like I have dental floss shaped rectangle stuck on my tv.
[1] This born and bred ND fan found Thursday night's game both more satisfying and soul-crushing. : (

I'm so damn happy baseball is back! But certainly will never be going to the Satdium again while nonsense like this is implemented: http://yankees.lhblogs.com/2015/04/05/yankees-ask-fans-arrive-early-mondays-opener/
