Totally out of my go-to-bed-at-9pm-on-weekdays character...but I finally made it to a Rockies game last night with my Dearest Manda, and even indulged in a few microbrews (shocker). Only downfall was a missed all the drama with the Bachelor Pad. I hear there were lots of tears...but don't worry, I totally DVR'd it!
But the game was great. Company was fantastic and I even learned a couple of things. One - all pin stripes on baseball uniforms are navy...no matter what the team colors are. Crazy! Two - the term southpaw originated from left handed pitchers because home base was always west and therefore the leftys faced south. Interesting....who would have thought!!
Ask me about football and I will talk your ear off. But baseball is a foreign world to me. I even started a Baseball Fantasy League this year with Gator Guy with hopes that I would learn more. From the league I conclude with the following:
1. I still do not know any thing more about baseball than I did before. This is supported by the fact that I have not changed anything on my team since day one and have now gone from 10th to 3rd place. Wish Fantasy Football was that easy.
2. I created a team of pervs. Seriously. I named the league Ball Smackers (long story, but the short version is some drunk guy kept yelling out Ball Smackers on the train. I thought I was so funny that I wrote it down on my sudoku and decided to name any kickball or baseball team after it.) Gator Guy and I determined that we should leave the league public just to see if we got anyone else. Well, I built it...and they came. Example team names are: Family Jewels, Blue Balls, and Big Long Balls. Seriously....I created a league for all the pervs. Well done Kat. Well done.
