The B-Word

Can you believe we are more than halfway through May and I haven't even mentioned the B-word on my blog? Not even once since spring training started in March. But I can't hold back any longer.

The Red Sox and Cubbies are both in first place in their division but the Rockies are struggling down in third. the critics are having a field day saying it proves the fluke of their World Series appearance lat year. Well, fluke or no fluke I was proud of them to just get there. I get to watch 2 games/week over here and am seriously considering subscribing to mlb live over the internet. problem with this is I am asleep for most games.....so it doesn't really work for me.

We are going to be in the states for nearly 3 weeks this summer. In the schedule, we've got plans to catch 1 game in Colorado. I wonder if my family would be cross if I sit in front of the television watching baseball all day/all night every day. Yeah, that probably won't go down so well.

Sebastian has started batting practice in the back garden. He's good. Do scouting agents come over here?

Oh, how I love the boys of summer!

Here in Sacramento we have the "girls (women) of summer"
WNBA Sacramento Monarchs. They won the first game by a good margin. SO...while you are watching baseball, I will be at all except one of the Monarch's home games. Good luck to your teams. Three Monarchs are potential Olympic players.

Not to worry.....I don't have your email address. Not sure what happened to that. We are very busy but will squeeze you in. We have plans on 9, 12, 13, and 14 June. And more plans on 18 and 19 June. So there are a few evenings in there. Maybe 15 June? Would love to meet the better half of your family!
