Baseball. Back. Baby.

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on April 4, 2016

Really intrigued to see how Bumgarner does today. Vegas seems to be a bit skeptical too as the total is 7.5 (a little high for a MadBum start) and the Brewers are +157 to win. With Peralta going against a stud like Bum I would have expected them to be at least +220 to win. Even with them being at home.

But Bum sucked this spring as he tried to shake off two mysterious aches. Pitching isn’t like riding a tractor and I hope he isn’t trying to soldier-thru one or two actual injuries. I guess we’ll find out today.

Season predictions hold no interest for me anymore. Anyone can blabber out who they think will win the divisions but teams change dramatically over the course of the season and unless you put $$$$ down on it does anyone care if you’re right?

It’s great to see Loo and his tiny url’s back at it again. This morning, while making coffee in the dark, I wondered quietly to myself who was taller, Loo or his tiny url’s…..

James is back, too. Probably got stuck in a winter-long line at Costco trying to purchase bulk loads of plastic wrap. Who knows, he might actually need it this year.

Well Flappers, we’ve managed to sludge our way through another winter. No BBOTD’s, only a few haiku’s. The important thing is that we broke on through to the other side. I’ve opened back up the Eastern and Western arms of Flavor Industries. I’m looking for a few good latex salesmen.

The sun will be rising soon. It’s supposed to get near 90 here this week before temps plunge back down. A nice reminder that Summer is on it’s way and our favorite sport starts today to guide through the heat, the fresh cut grass, the bikini clad Flapperettes and all the rest of the radness that comes with this time of year…….

    Clutch shot by that kid, NC let Nova advance the ball too easily. This Shows why college ball is better than NBA except Dubs games…

        It’s on A1 for the Cherry Hill Courier Post (across the river in NJ).

    the ending truly captured the joy and heartbreak of sports in two seconds, or less

    Great start, but that park is a joke, especially with the roof closed…

    Watching the replay of the game tonight, I have to wonder wtf is up with Magowan? Dodger blue sweater over a pink shirt? The woman with the big tits however is impressive. She’s keeping score, pitch by pitch.

    • Macdog said, on April 4, 2016 at 9:34 pm

      Yeah, looked like she stayed to the end.

  9. unca_chuck said, on April 4, 2016 at 9:54 pm

    Awwww come on, DJ. Without the roof the game is snowed out and we don’t get or epic win or Jugs McGee in the front row.

    Just checking the tape and Carter getting thrown out at 2nd on the ball in the dirt was a huge play. As was the melting rope by Pagan.

  11. unca_chuck said, on April 4, 2016 at 10:08 pm

    Wow. Just got to the best part…..

    Gotta love that.

    I ain’t no basketball maven, but I thought Villanova’s final play was good. The point guard brought the ball down as quickly as possible, drove toward the key as if toward the hoop, but then flipped back to the sharp shooter following right behind who had just a fraction of a second to beat both the D and the buzzer. And so he did.

    If a few guys have the flu, what du you du? Give ’em facemasks? Keep them away from everybody else? Put them in cabs, not on the bus? Fly ’em on commercial? What?…
