        1. I mean, I totally agree. 3 hours to get to the point? yawn indeed. However, Leo really delivers as an actor in crisis (I don't know if he's playing himself here or not, but he was pretty convincing).

  1. just home from 11 days on the road. It was good to sleep in my own bed for a change.

    GrandpaS and GrandmaS are prepping to begin moving into their 4plex unit in the old folks' home (it has full-spectrum up to/including a memory unit) in a couple weeks. We got some stuff loaded into a trailer because of course he wants to drive shit down himself from Up North to Bloomington.

    But it was a good visit. Got a boat ride, got a bunch of stuff done for them, played some cribbage, ate and drank more than enough.

    Also, the Girl is safely in place in Little Nikita school her teaching position in Ruskieland. Proof of life established via FB video chat. Technology is effing amazing.

  2. Good news on the Nelson Cruz front.

      1. It's still so goofy to me that "ruptured tendon" is "oh, thank god" kind of news. Like, thank goodness that tendon isn't getting in the way anymore, all it ever did was hold him back.

  3. 2020 schedule out today. I think I'll be going to Cleveland in May. My dad wants to see the Rock Hall and we'll combine with Twins game.

    1. Three weekend series in Chicago.

      July 4 (CLE), labor day (TB), and the week before school (BOS) are all parks the little guy hasn't visited yet.

      Pretty good schedule for us.

      1. Unfortunately a bad schedule for the Twins. 15 games in April including a 10 game home stand that includes the only Seattle and Boston visits. Also only 10 home games in July and only two weekend games that whole month.

    1. They got 4 in the first game. Can they get 14 in the second? Maybe!

      Thankfully the Twins have many Tigers pitchers to beat up later in the year

      1. and 3 more in the second game. Sheesh, the Orioles are embarrassing.

        Yankees now just 11 behind the Twins, though the Twins have two games in hand.

  4. I've been breathing in the lovely LA smog! (Or, more accurately, the overly air conditioned hotel air.)

    I was here for work, but the whole family came along, and the boys had a blast going to see the Dodgers play the Diamondbacks yesterday--particularly the moment with back-to-back home runs!

    I'll be heading back to the good ol' Central time zone shortly, and I'm not looking forward to the moment the alarm goes off far too early tomorrow morning...

    1. Love the mid-century vibe, Dodger dogs and sunshine, but getting out of Chavez Ravine after the game...ugh.

      1. The last time I was in Chaves Ravine there had been two beatings in the parking lot the previous week. I didn't really understand until I tried to drive home....

  5. Made it to Minneapolis this past weekend and had a grand time. No Twins game (my friend does not like sportsballs one bit which is fine), but hit up Pizza Luce (good!) and Blue Door Pub (great!) was going to go to Matts for a J.L. but was not willing to stand in a long line while it was raining. Im going to hav to visit soon and come up with a bigger list of places to go.
