On The Receiving End

The Brewers really took one (or twelve) to the chin last night.  I’m not sure why everyone is/was so keen on Dave Bush; I’ve never seen him as anything other than mediocre.  His fastball is slow, he works slowly, and he regularly gets roughed up for a bunch of runs (particularly early).  Good ol’ Ned is high on the kid, though, so that means he’ll be pitching (and losing) for the rest of the season.  Early in the game things looked good.  It was in the fifth that the Reds really broke the door open and streamed through.  Say lah vee.

In the ‘April Showers Bring May Flowers’ equation, we’re firmly in the ‘showers’ part.  Rain two days ago, rain yesterday, rain today, thunderstorms tomorrow.  The grass is starting to turn from brown to green, which is heartening and I was able to jog to the gym yesterday.  I just gotta wait out the next week; then it’s off to California from the 20th to the 26th, followed by a Las Vegas vacation.

I decided to start writing about the housing crash and my opinions on it, but I haven’t posted anything yet because I’m unsure where to start and because, when dealing with a contentious topic such as this, I really hem and haw when discussing it.  I need to make sure I present my views correctly.  I hope those posts will be more thought out and edited than the dreck I currently serve to you, my adoring friends.

  1. I used to not like shousie so much, but I’ve warmed up to him lately. Turnbow is about to implode again.

  2. Wait, wait, wait. Bush is 3rd. Villanueva AND Parra are after him in the rotation. You jerk, you’re wrong.

  3. It’s not too much to ask that your number 3 pitcher doesn’t suck donkey nuts. Cal– back me up here, it probably says something about this in Casey At The Bat or something, right? Greg at the Bat…

  4. The outlook wasn’t brilliant for the Mudville nine that day;
    The score stood four to two, with but one inning more to play,
    And then when Cooney died at first, and Barrows did the same,
    A pall-like silence fell upon the patrons of the game.

    A straggling few got up to go in deep despair. The rest
    Clung to that hope which springs eternal in the human breast;
    They thought, “If only Greg could but get a whack at that —
    We’d put up even money now, with Greg at the bat.”

  5. we were down to 1 soda and i think rach-o tried to hide it in the back of the fridge so she could have it with dinner. i caught that shit and said

    “oh, so you da try ta hide a soda bitch?”

    it’s fun to say.

  6. Is that like, Jar-Jar Binks talk or something? BTW– I watched Star Wars 1-3 a couple of weeks ago, and with the hindsight that only 9 years can bring you– George Lucas was out of his fuckin’ mind with that shit.

  7. me-sa say yes

    cal, i took rach-o up to the top of the BOA. she enjoyed it. we were surrounded by snobby bankers of the most comically typical kind…. single malt this, single malt that, single malt the other. one guy admitted to drinking bourbon and i swear to god i’m not lying, they threw him off the building. the asian woman in a well tailored gray suit with chunky black frames snickered and then erupted “SELLING WHEAT!” then the monopoly man came squirted out from around the corner, “DID SOMEBODY SAY SELLING WHEAT?!” then his moniCAL fell out “oh dear! my moniCAL!”

    on the elevator ride down i jumped up and down and tried to break it. no luck. great work BOA! jump-proof elevators!
