4:20pm 30 minutes later and I’m walkin’ on sunshine, oh yeah…even if the weather’s still brutal in KC…the mid-7th inning cutin went much better, as the Yankees took the lead…it’s all ebb and flow, ebb and flow…Time to watch the bullpen go to work and get ready for the postgame…Happy Easter!
3:50pm I just did it again…walked up to the set before any outs were made in the bottom of the 4th…the Royals rally for 2 runs to take the lead…I really have to re-think my mid-game, cut-in philosophy. That steady rain in Kansas City does not look like any fun at all.
Hope you’re enjoying a great day with family or friends…or both. Good start for the Yankees again today, thanks to the blindingly blurry legs of Brett Gardner. Did you see him steal second base? Some guys take a quick peek toward the plate while they’re racing to the bag. Brett just keeps his head turned to the left, like he’s watching his favorite sitcom while running. Kinda reminds me of that one commercial where the sprinter’s legs are going a million miles a minute, and he’s talking to the camera and texting at the same time! Challenge I want to take Gardner on in a footrace…here’s the challenge…a race all the way around the bases…Gardner has to start at home plate and run all the way around. Meanwhile, I will run from home to first while eating a double chocolate donut and balancing a super XL cup o’ joe. I think I could BARELY beat him…but if I were to drop a small chunk o’ donut on the way, I’d probably stop to pick it up, even if it’s covered in chalk (what I call…powdered sugar coating), and the door would be open for him to beat me. Body Double Do you ever play that game where you see somebody that kinda looks like somebody, so you draw the comparison? Well, this might be a stretch, but check out the dugout shots on YES of Royals manager Trey Hillman…a brief glimpse, especially of the eye area, looks like it could be Christian Bale in some kind of movie makeup…like it’s Christian Bale playing the role of Trey Hillman. Let me know…is that a stretch?
