Ahhhhhhh… Baseball At Last


Warm Sunday afternoon in April.  Coors Field.  Watching the Rockies beat the Padres with my wife and two sons and two brothers and a sister with all their wives and kids, etc.  Drinking a cold beer with my feet up.  Trying to keep Gruntessa from hogging all the Coors.  Throwing pistachios at my oldest niece/god-daughter and getting pelted in return because she has a helluva arm.  Enjoying Patriarchy.  Maybe getting a little bummed out because I can’t properly babe-watch, since all the best looking women in the section are gals I’m related to.  But then being kinda proud of that.  Thinking we better enjoy this season before Hillary gets in the White House.  Maybe the Apocalypse won’t be so bad after all.  Maybe.

    one of the only sports I really like; but then they sold my boyhood home team when I was nine.
    I just can’t bring myself to watch a game anymore. It just ain’t the same.

    What… no snow in Colorado????? It’s only April. Must be global warming or something.

    Maybe I’m unAmerican or something but I’ve always hated baseball unless I was playing. It bore the hell out of me. Damn, that’s a slow game. At least it’s more interesting to watch than golf. 🙂

    Glad you and yours enjoy it though.

    • Anything goes in April! You just don’t know ahead of time. Hey ‘Nox, me and the missus are going to be in Virginia a lot this month and next. I’ll be working a lot, but we should be at the York River Craft Beer Festival in Yorktown this Saturday. Keep us in mind! Maybe we can buy you that beer I keep promising!
