Random Thoughts

While waiting for the phone to ring.

Watched the Jays play again. I've really watched a lot of baseball recently. Which is good, being single and all. Baseball has a way of making the evening pass by really slowly. Real slow.

Anyways, for future me, the reason I haven't posted a blog in a while is because I was filming that television show. Which I can't tell you about because of a signed confidentiality agreement. Needless to say, you know what happened.

Back to baseball. The Jays aren't going to go into the playoffs this year. It's time for that August swoon into September dissapointment. Going into last weekends series in Detroit, Jays were 4 games out of a wildcard chasing the A's, yankees and Indians. It's now tuesday, they got swept by Detroit and lost the first game of a series against the yanks last night. They didn't score, but a blown call at second base on a stolen base (Zaun, a great catcher, is indicative of how reputation seals your fate with the umps, threw the ball to Hudson, who should finally win a gold glove this year) led to a 5 run inning, making a 2-0 lead into a 7-0 one. Anyways, one of the best, if not the best defensive teams in baseball, the Jays are without Cy Halladay and Not-so-Cy Lilly, and just don't have the arms to make it. Although they do play alot against the yanks, so they could do the whole world a favour and beat them. Expletive the yankees.

It's been a trend, since 95 up until the last few years when they really sucked, that the Jays would keep around .500, their fans hoping and waiting for that one big winning streak to propell them into the playoffs, and instead getting a losing one. It's 4 games now by my count, losing wise, and it looks like that's the fate. Not to be pessemistic, but perhaps an arm in the rotation could help for next year, and get one of the current arms into long relief.

And maybe a bat. That would be nice.

Football starts soon, I need to read up and catch up on the news. I've got a stack of research materials to plow through, and now that I have some time off school until the fall term, I should be able to plow through it. I have a week now. Just a bit by bit should do it. One position a day. Knowing myself, I'm not going to do anything until much later.

Saw a pirated version of the Family guy movie last night. Few blatent laugh out loud moments. Good times. Even said "lol" but not as one word, as letters.

Maybe Jays can win tonite. fuck the yankees.
