    Random Thoughts

    The wind is making some interesting tones as it goes by the building. Some people might find the sounds creepy, but those people probably need to expand their minds.

    RIP Don Rickles (Mr. Warmth)

    Don't forget his Tonight Show appearances as well.... Respect.

    Opening Day vs. Toronto 4/3 3:05

    My technical issues persist, but a happy Opening Day to you all (happier with an Orioles win, obviously).

    vs. TWINS, 4/04 (Opening Day)

    Happy Opening Day. Hopefully this ends well. Still not here, but still not dead.

    vs. RAYS, 4/06 (Opening Day)

    Happy Opening Day. I won't be posting much, because the ads have really been destroying my site experience over the last several months. When I do show up, I end up not being able to navigate reasonably well, and I inevitably give up. So, no, not dead, just inactive.
  6. Good stuff. Vastly improved aesthetics, and some functionalities as well. Would really like to take a trip down one ST (a pipe dream, ha).

    Are we heading for gasoline below $2/gallon?

    Exactly. I will probably have her use it as a go-to whenever she's driving back home or going north and wants a snack along with it, or other normal things like that. She'll at least get more discount out of that than what she gets anywhere else, which is about nada.

    Are we heading for gasoline below $2/gallon?

    That is really good. If I went to them, it was usually the one at the 50 Bus./Nanticoke Rd./W Isabella St. intersection. My sister is still there, so I'll have to let her know about that.

    Are we heading for gasoline below $2/gallon?

    I'm just glad that after this coming weekend, I won't have any long-ish car trips for at least six weeks. Cutting our average daily gasoline expenditures to a small fraction of a dollar also has been great, as have the sizable discounts we enjoy when we actually need to get gas.

    Congrats to Madison Bumgarner

    A tremendous performance in the Series. Once the outcome of Game 6 was known, I knew he would be back last night - just a manner of how many innings. To go five was just about surreal. No one else could have been Series MVP.

    This is nothing compared to 1969

    I agree this doesn't top '69, but I believe it is pretty far up the list. It feels worse to me than '96 or '97, but it can't top the World Series losses. Those all were heinous. The Orioles haven't been relevant for enough of my lifetime to have had that many playoff frustrations, but this is definitely the worst of them.

    vs. ROYALS, 10/15 (A.L.C.S., Game Four)

    Quite so. I was hoping for a well-fought series that real baseball fans would be able to enjoy, not a cakewalk for a bunch of douchebags and bandwagoneers.

    vs. ROYALS, 10/15 (A.L.C.S., Game Four)

    Like I said earlier, the Royals are now on my permanent S-list. This is the biggest sports disappointment of my lifetime that I can clearly remember (Super Bowl XVIII, while in my lifetime, is a bit hazy). I felt uneasy before the series began, and once they didn't bounce back in Game 2, I figured that was it, but I wanted to be wrong. Not even one MF-ing win. A bed-crapping for the ages. Simply ridiculous. This tops '96 and '97 by far. I want nothing but pain for Kansas City and all their fans, and I want it never to end. I want them henceforth consigned to baseball hell, with no hope for returning.
