KJ is on fire!

I’ve gotta re-think my 4th inning strategy.  Now, I don’t wanna come across as overly superstitious, but weird things happen when I’m going to the set for the 4th inning cutin, when I do an update from another game.  It always seems that, when I leave my office mid-4th, and head up to the studio, the bottom half of the inning goes on waaaaay too long.  And in the case of tonight’s game, or any road game, that’s not good for the Yankees.  I sit down, plug in, mike up and sit, sit, sit.  Finally, the update.  Not good.  I’m gonna have to change things up, maybe leave my office with one out in the bottom of the 4th.  I know, I’m crazy…wouldn’t be the first time that’s been said!  Check ya later…
C’mon Blob! Man, I’ve gotta ramp it up … Kim Jones is absolutely crushing me with her new blog. She just fired off a pregame memo, and she says she’s already planning in-game updates … Keeping Up With the Jones?! No kiddin’, KJ!

Deep breath, everyone 
I’m always amazed at how many people go a little kookoo bananas after a season-opening loss. CC’s gonna be fine. So is Tex. I heard somebody say, “There’s a lot of baseball left.” Almost ridiculous to hear after just one game, no? I just wonder how many straight wins it would take for those already putting a toe over the ledge to step back and chill a bit.

Day off? For what?!
Nah, I know why MLB schedules a day off after a season opener, but the day off yesterday was like being on the part of a roller coaster that’s NOT a thrill … like you just go screaming at an 80-degree angle down a track, then level off and coast around a corner … keep the adrenaline flowin’!

By the way, you know what I love to do when I’m on a coaster at a theme park? Find out where the camera is that takes a picture you can buy after the ride’s over. I did that a month or so ago at Aerosmith’s Rockin’ Rollercoaster at Disney. It’s right at the start … 0-70 mph in no time flat, and I make the goofiest or most shocked faces. Just watch the reaction of the people you’re riding with when they see the picture! Priceless. Maybe I’ll do the same thing at the start of the pregame tonight, or maybe not.But now ya know how I get my kicks on a coaster. More later….
