    Game's in an hour and a half, it's pouring, but no cancellation announced yet.

    Let the people in to buy six dollar hot dogs and thirteen dollar cups of beer and then send them home with a last minute cancellation.

    If you have to refund the ticket money, at least make some of it back first.

    American capitalism is special.

    The bleacher tickets for which I paid $1 when I was in college cost $20 now.
    The $4 box seats are like $125 or so.
    I can't guess what parking is.
    That's more than inflation, my friends.
    Nice to have cable and a 70" screen, though.

    OK. I've got the New England Sports Network on.

    So far, just one ad after another.

    Still don't know if they're playing in this soggy weather.

    These goddamned commercials just go on and on and on.

    I think that this is like maybe the 15th straight ad. Maybe more.

    OK. It looks like they're going to try to get it started.

    They're talking to Cora. I can't believe that they've brought Cordero back up.
    I can hit major league pitching as well as he can right now. And I'm almost 75.

    And now more fucking ads. Capitalism blows. Put baseball on State TV!!!

    Money isn’t worth as much as it used to be. My dad bought a box of fifty 22 bullets for 5 cents when he was a boy. For me they were 40 cents. For my son, that same box of Federal ammo costs $4.

    Nice comeback today. It’s never a bad day when the Yankees lose.

    Yes. Going into the eighth losing 4-0 and getting no-hit to boot-- then suddenly asking your closer to save a 5-4 lead in the top of the 9th and he manages to do it--that never sucks.
    Against the Yankees, though, it's extra special. Growing up, I spent my life watching them do things like that to us.
    Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, and Whitey Ford may all be dead mow--but they can still give me nightmares on a bad night.

    The cost of center-fire ammo is really ridiculous, though.

    Home from church tonight. Watching the Olympics while rooting for the White Sox. Hoping they hold on.

    Today would have been an awesome day to play golf and we didn't have a game planned.
    I wonder if the course is dry enough to drive the carts off the paths yet.
    I doubt it. This July has been basically under water.

    My friend is a renowned brown grass bump and run shot wizard, but his talent has gone to waste this year.
    The advantage is to those of us with a lawn dart lob and stick approach.
    The ball mark tool gets a workout on seasons like this.

    Yanks have left. I think the Jays are coming in.
    I remember going to the old Exhibition Stadium in Toronto before they built the Rogers SkyDome.
    The kids were like seven and ten and loved rooting for the Red Sox on foreign turf.
    But they also made me go on some stupid boat ride under Niagara Falls where we all got soaked despite the provided slickers.

    This being my thread, I suppose I should stay on topic a little bit.
    Pachys suck.

    Had work today…lots of trees to cut down from around a friend’s fenced yard. His yard was being swallowed up. Got the trees on the ground without getting any on his house so it was a good morning. [Edit: I had to go to the school at 1 this afternoon and help interview a prospective math teacher for this coming school year. Very good candidate and I recommended they hire him immediately.] My son has friends coming over to play video games tonight. Will be feeding some 17-18 year old pizza…BLTs for me and the missus. I’ll watch whatever baseball is on the tube.

    No golf until Wednesday. Taking dad to his cancer doctor in the morning…1 1/2 hour drive. Cutting the downed trees into firewood for my BIL tomorrow evening. Golf Wednesday sounds good. Dry here. Bump and run is the way to go.

    Hope things work out for Leaning's dad, of course.

    No time to cook and be ready to flip on the Sox while we eat.
    Looks like another take out night.
    Let's see how long I can get away with it before the Gestapo has something to say about all the takeout.

    KFC is health food, isn't it? It's an answer for accusations of too much red meat.

    Also remember that with crust, tomato, cheese, and a meat topping, pizza is a balanced meal with all the food groups.

    Another come from behind win versus Team Canada tonight.

    Verdugo's unprofessional home run trot would have earned him a fastball in the ribs tomorrow night if they played the game the way they used to.
    Alex needs to learn how to act as if he's done it before, but maybe I'm just old school.

    Been watching the Olympics and baseball this evening. Mainly watching the Reds and Cubs. Good game. Be interesting to see what repercussions Baez earns from the league for his escapade after his walkoff hit. If he faces Reds pitching anymore this year I’d expect him to receive a ball to the ribs … fine, ejection, suspension be hanged. Mr. Niblick might have me chronologically by about 20 years but I’m definitely old school.

    They’re gonna biopsy dads tumor again and try to determine if he’s a candidate for the newer immunotherapy drugs. None of us want to see him have to take chemotherapy. He’s 90, still drives wherever he wants to go, raises a decent sized garden and does pretty much what he wants to do. We don’t want to see his quality of life diminished too much. Ultimately it’s up to him and what he wants to do though. Taking the boys (my son and his friend) to stack brush and load firewood this evening. I’ll cut, they’ll load and stack. Reminds me of when I was a kid working with dad.
