Wow, this game is flying and I’m just getting a chance to Blob! I’ve been distracted by a lot of things tonight, including being partially consumed with the very strange sound coming from a floor below my office…it sounds like…well, like…a big guy with a bad case of gas. It’s actually, I think, a jigsaw cutting something…but it’s a bit disconcerting every time someone walks in and the sound starts…I get a very sheepish look on my face and I have to say, “It’s ain’t me.”
Chatty Kimmy I saw the live chat with Kim Jones went well! A lot of questions, some very interesting and witty answers. I really thought when she was asked who her favorite YES announcer is to work with, it was me WAY ahead of anybody else, but she did the whole diplomatic, “I love them all” thing. It’s me, trust me. I’m sure she’ll get a kick out of me writing that…and I’ll instantly slide down the list!
Call Me Jinxie Another reason I’ve been away from my Blobbin’ computer is because I’ve been up on the set most of the night, monitoring the Matt Garza perfecto attempt vs. the Red Sox, so I can do updates. First time I do a check from the Trop, I announce Garza has a no-no through 4 and Michael says, “Way to jinx him, Bob”. I do another update after 6, the perfect game still intact…then top 7, Jacoby Ellsbury leads off with a weak grounder past Garza for an infield hit. Perfect game, gone…no-hitter, gone…Michael gets on me for jinxing it…Flash piles on…Good stuff. Bring it on, I can take it.
Picture This Also tonight, I was testing the new digital camera I bought so I can take pics around here, as promised, and post them on the Blob. I’ve been doing tests in the studio, seeing if I need the lights up or down (we don’t always keep the studio lights on), which parts of the studio can be seen easily…and then, at some point, I’m going to go ambush the guys and ladies in the control room, paparazzi-style, and fire off some shots! I hope to post them soon. Have a great night!
