Jesus, I’m not sure I can take any more Super Bowl *hype*. I think I could handle hype about the game but that’s not what we’ve gotten this week. Deer antler spray, homophobic hysteria from that dolt Culliver and now a whiny cheerleader complaining about being left off the Ravens cheerleader squad because she gained 1.8 pounds. It’s all a bunch of nonsense. Play the game already and put these story lines out of their misery…….
The Panda’s team just won the Venezuelan Winter League Championships, of which he was named the MVP. I’ve been spending my normal amount of winter time worrying about how large he’s gotten since last November. Here’s a recent pic of him celebrating his home run and he looks about the same to me:
The fact is, he spent his off season playing baseball and that is probably the best thing for him. There were reports that his abdominal pain hospitalization was caused by a disease called colitis. That’s a little scary, that’s a serious condition. But there are many different types of colitis so I guess we should wait and see what’s going on with him. In many cases people who have colitis are put on a steroid called Prednisone with one of the main side effects being a swelling of the face. I’m not sure if The Panda’s face could tolerate such a side effect.
But until we know more, life probably couldn’t be much better than it is right now for Sandoval.
