#19

I know. I’ve been super lazy about blogging and commenting lately. For some reason, ever since the season ended, I haven’t had much motivation to blog. Not good. So when I looked at the Latest Leaders today, I was super surprised that I was still in my general area with #19!!! I was pretty shocked. Thanks so much to all my incredible readers here. Even though I haven’t been giving you much, it’s so cool to know that you’re still visiting. Thank you. It really means a lot to me.

UPDATE: So I didn’t realize that this Latest Leaders was for the whole regular season. That’s so cool! From April to October, this blog was #19 in popularlity. Wow. THANK YOU!!!

I’ve dedicated this number to this man before, but it’s worth doing again:

besthittertonyg.jpgSo this last weekend I was in Arizona. Since we really didn’t have anything to do, I thought this would be a perfect oppurtunity to go check out some of the Spring Training stadiums. We only got to one, Hohokam Stadium, which is the Cubs’ Spring Training facility.

It was a very interesting experience. First of all, it was 100 degrees outside. When we got there, there was about half an hour until a game was starting between the Mesa Solar Sox and the Surprise Rafters. Craziest thing. You would have never guessed that there was a game about to be played. It was so quiet! Sure, there were a few people in the stands, but it was so still and peaceful.

We walked behind the field and were able to get a great view of the stadium.

Well, since the Red Sox got elimiated, I haven’t really been tied to the playoffs. I got to watch a few of the games while I was in Arizona, which was really cool. Though I’m definitely not cheering for the Yankees, I gotta say that that walk-off win the other night was pretty cool. But only because it was Jerry Hairston Jr. who scored the winning run. He’s so much like Scotty, it’s incredible!

Wow, I just checked the score from last nights Phillie-Dodger game: 11-0 Phillies!!! Wow, I really love that score!

No Padres news lately :(
