    I read an interesting story on the internet about food served at baseball stadiums all over the country. In Texas you can get Tex-Mex food, in California you can get a fish taco or crab salad, and out east they have enormous sandwiches. (Where is PNC Park? They have a Primanti Brothers sandwich and I saw that restaurant on Guy Fieri's show.) Up in Milwaukee you can have a Usinger bratwurst instead of a hot dog.... yum! I'd like to try the fish taco, please and I love Mexican food.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    It hasn't been a very good day for baseball in Chicago. The Cubs ... lost to Pittsburgh. The White Sox had a lead, but their pitcher gave up a grand slam. I'm not sure who the Sox' opponent was.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!

    Today is a double-header in Boston, as yesterday night, they would have needed kayaks in the outfield. and a snorkel mark for the catcher!

    I have been going to some of the local minor league games here in town....

    Growing up as a kid? I rooted against the hated Reds, Pete Rose, Cesar Geronimo, Dave Concepcion and the rest of gang.........

    The team here is a farm club for the Reds, so I have had to stifle myself when I go to the games.

    ---------

    The one thing that I really do enjoy is the atmosphere at the stadium.

    It's not as tense as a major league game and the fans are much more well behaved.

    It's sad that people take sports too seriously.

    Oh, Cubbies. You are breaking my heart. You were up 3-0 going into the ninth inning - against the Mets - and you gave the win away. When the fans said "Maybe next year" last year, we really meant it.

    I started life as a Red Sox fan. As a native of Rhode Island they were the closest. My uncle took my brother and I to Fenway Park when we were just kids - my first visit to a "real" ball park.

    As I got older I sort of switched to the Yankees - after all, they did win the occasional Championship. I remember game 5 of the 1956 World Series - racing home from school to see Don Larsen pitch a perfect game. After I graduated from Nursing School, I worked in NYC - Columbia-Presbyterian. A patient gave me 2 tickets to game 5 of the 1962 World Series. The Yankees beat the Giants - what fun that was

    I moved to Michigan in 1966 and immediately loved the Tigers. And two years later they won the World Series

    I'm a Tiger fan through and through. But when the Sox won in 2004 I almost went nuts. What a fantastic run of baseball that was. The person I most thought of that night was my Uncle Lester - how happy he would have been when they won.

    The Tigers are doing well this year. It's fun to watch our lineup when they are on a role. Poor opposing pitchers - can't figure out who to walk 'cause the next one up is perfectly capable of driving the ball out of the park

    The Cubs are 15 games behind Pittsburgh in the National League Central. The White Sox are also quite a ways out. d:-(

    It has been an interesting season so far ... I do like it when it's not just the same teams on top, the AL East has several good teams going!

    I'm getting SO tired of the umpires acting like they're more important than the players.

    http://www.dallasnews.com/sports/tex...pens-to-me.ece

    It was a borderline ball, which normally gets called a strike with a hot pitcher on the mound, and Kulpa has to turn a possible no-hitter into a headline about himself.
    The one eyed man in the kingdom of the blind wasn't king, he was stoned for seeing light.

    But isn't it all about Ego?

    I will be glad when we can get through a sportscast without hearing a certain Suspended-but-playing Yankee's name. Sigh. Why would a manager even want him on the field but to generate publicity?
