Down 2-0 after two and a half. Unlucky inning for Pineda full of bloops and a potential DP ricocheting (Dazzle word!) off an umpire.
Just saw a guy walk by wearing a "Bring Back the Trees" shirt. That's a new one. Oh, and I also spotted a Tyny jersey.
Looks like Mags isn't around to get this set up, so I'll throw this together and figure out how to do a spreadsheet later (or rely upon a spreadsheet maestro like DG or spooky).
Anyway, for your choices
Brighton & Hove Albion
West Ham United
SPOILERS below and I'll get it all compiled. (Or maybe I'll outsource it.) You got till next Saturdayish to get it in.
I mentioned this a few weeks ago, but I'm meeting Chris Jaffe this morning for brunch at the 3 Squares Restaurant in Maple Grove at about 9:45 if anyone else wants to chat baseball and history for a little while.
This is the fourth straight game I have attended in which a Twin was picked off the bases. Stupid.
I flipped on the game only to hear Jackendick blathering about shifts ruining the game.
Harry Kane is pretty good.
Darren Viola (Repoz back when I used to visit Baseball Think Factory) pointed out that New Yorkers will be missing out on a lot of synergy if Gary Sánchez isn't invited to participate in this year's New Year's Eve ball drop.
We're about two months into the great potty training adventure and . . . there are about 10 stickers total on our progress chart. The first weekend, as expected, had one success and many accidents. The second weekend had several more successes, and we thought he would be ready to take it to school and keep working at it. Instead, he had an absolute meltdown that Monday at school, so we backed off a little bit. Then we went to Germany and his grandmother, who promised to keep at it, ... did not keep at it. Since then, we've had a few successes at school and a stray one at home. He's willing to patiently sit on the training potty and read books for extended periods of time, but nothing happens.
So we bribe successes with stickers, M&Ms, and the ultimate reward of ice cream if he ever fills up his chart. We also make a really big deal any time there is a success to support him. Any other ideas?
