Patiently Desperate

I’m back! Well, I didn’t go anywhere, but I was so busy enjoying all this rain that I didn’t get to blogging this weekend. It’s been raining since Thursday here, and I think we’re on the third storm right now. It’s been raining so much that even some of the people who love rain are starting to get sick of it. Not me, though. I don’t think I could live in a world that rained constantly, but this is a lot of fun. We haven’t had this great of a rain in a long time. We are getting very well watered. So funny how I was able to write an entry about summer last week!

In baseball news, of course there’s the A-Rod thing. I don’t want to talk about it. Just go read Julia’s letter to Bud Selig and sign it. Oh, A-Rod…

In Padres news, there are going to be 34 pitchers in Spring Training! How exciting. Actually, it is, since pitchers and catchers report THIS WEEKEND!!! I think we’re going to make it!!

Wow, this offseason has actually gone by pretty quickly! It’s amazing. Suddenly, we’re only a few days away from Spring Training. I think it helped that I didn’t keep a countdown this year. Last year I started a countdown the day after Game 163 from like 250 days or so. That was a really long offseason. But this year, I didn’t do a countdown at all and it practically flew by. But the thing that really got me through this offseason was this blog and this blogosphere. I just want to thank all you guys for blogging and commenting all offseason, for supporting me through all the Padres’ tough moves. It was a long, hard offseason for a lot of fans, but we made it. Thank you!!

It’s going to be a very interesting season. I am so excited to see how the Padres can do this year. I hope they can exceed their very low expectations. It’s just going to be amazing to have baseball back. I am very desperate for baseball, but I can wait. It’s almost here :)

I’m glad you’re enjoying the rain. I’m not. Well, not today at least. I didn’t get the memo that it was supposed to be pouring rain at 7:00 this morning. When I left my apartment, there was a light drizzle. Five minutes later when I leave Starbucks, it’s pouring. And I didn’t bring my umbrella. Needless to say, I was soaking wet when I got to the trolley five minutes later. And I had to go to class. But I’m so excited that pitchers and catchers report this weekend. I feel like it’s taking forever!

Yeah, Jen, I probably enjoy it more because I don’t have to be out in it! I can just sit here and enjoy it from the safety of the house. When I got up this morning, it was pouring, and it didn’t stop for a few hours. But I bet we’re going to get Santa Anas or something later this week. You know this crazy San Diego weather: pouring rain one day, and summer conditions the next :)

Kaybee – thank you for the link and the support of my letter! Your rain – I think we’re getting it either Wednesday or Thursday. I guess it will melt a lot of the snow!

The rain isn’t bad. I kind of like it. I can’t wait for baseball to start!!!

Sorry, but this isn’t your year. The Dodgers are still very strong, except for their pitching, and I think the Giants can win the pennant, with or without Manny.

The rain… don’t even talk to me about it!!! it’s supposed to turn into snow and then come over here by Friday. I just keep thinking about how my Rockies will be gathering in nice, sunny Arizona and here I am, all the way in Colorado, with nothing but a blog and two feet of snow.
The Padres have set themselves up pretty good this year, just not good enough. The Rockies are gonna rule!

It was SO cold today here! I don’t like this kind of weather. It can bug me. Glad to hear that you are back.
Kaybee, we made it through our toughest offseason, yet. Finally! Actually, it was my first time blogging during offseason. It’s a good experience. I met many other great people like you and got into blogging! Pitchers and catchers report is coming this week!! I can’t wait for that. Oh yeah, go Padres!http://hyunyoung.mlblogs.com
