Bizarro World

The Cubs and the Rays share the best record in baseball.

The GEO Metro is making a comeback.

$2.99/Gallon gas is a promotion.

Clay Aiken impregnated a female.

I keep expecting Kevin, Gene and Feldmen to come walking toward me at any moment?

He Walks

I'm a little late in posting this, but two babies can wear a brother out.

Behold, the Luke Man.

He's still got his sea legs a bit, but a pretty dominant performance for his first official week of walking.  Every time that I let him walk in the front yard, he runs toward the road, flailing his arms the entire way.  I have to run after him looking like a bad parent who let my kid almost run out into the road.  I don't know what he sees over there at First Pres, but it must be pretty important.

What do you think of his walking skills?

Don't Call me Johnny Fairweather

The Tampa Bay Devil Rays are in first place in the AL East! They have the best record in the American League.

I know it's only May 14th, but I'm going on record and predicting that the Rays will win the pennant and make it to the World Series. Travis thinks they may play the Marlins and it would be an all Florida World Series. The "War of I-4," as he puts it, although to go from Tampa to Miami, you wouldn't really take I-4. Maybe they could call it the "War of I-75 to Alligator Alley" or something.

I started this season with a fresh interest in baseball. I have watched at least half of the games (which considering the amount of games in a MLB season, to watch half is an accomplishment) and have been to one game live (the first time I saw the Rays actually win a game in 5 or so tries). They are exciting to watch and most importantly, they can pitch. They are 4th in the AL in team ERA. Shield's has in his last two home games pitched a two hitter and a one hitter, both complete games. Kazmir is back and pitched 6 shut-out innings in the game Ryan and I went to on Saturday night. Ryan and I decided that every time Kazmir comes to the mound, they should play Led Zeppelin's Kasmir. At least WE thought it was funny. If you haven't been to a Rays game lately, be prepared to think you are at a Mississippi State home game what with all the cowbell. The Rays evidently have a fever and the only cure is more cowbell. It's almost annoying.

The Rays, in what is arguably the toughest division in all of baseball, are in first place. I might actually have some sports to cheer for while I wait for football season.
