I've been all around LA, driven through the desert, parked at the Pacific, and stopped over in the San Fran airport but I've never been to San Diego. I really do want to go to the zoo there one day. (Random, when Jenna and I road tripped to St. Louis in 07 we went to the zoo in the morning before the Braves game - it was fun!)
Anyway! Let's discuss a few things about the end of the San Francisco trip, yes?
#1 Most Important Thing! Jonny got his first save of 2011! Here's the video; how great is his grin!
Have we mentioned that the Braves have had a good-luck song going the past few days? It’s Eddie Money’s “Shakin’,” and Ross is usually the one singing it in the clubhouse (and dancing a bit to it; if only we had video of that).
I know locker room stuff is private and all that, but boy, would we love to see/hear this. (Also, the girl in this video has some amazingly horrible/"wonderful" 1982 makeup. I think the worst I've ever done is letting my lipstick get a little too red. My hair, on the other hand...) :D
Back to Braves, and awesome things, my girlfriends are still talking last Sunday's "Sunday School" special on FSN. Check out this video where Beardy Rossy teaches how to pick off a runner at second base -- at least, that's what they say he's teaching us. I'm still stuck on how he says he practices "boom... boom" in front of the mirror.
Yesterday's "Sunday School" was Ske talking about the art of Pinch Hitting. My brother's girlfriend liked his smile. Then I showed her his giant back tattoo, and she got really freaked out. Oops. Have to redo that fandom somehow. (Will post that video when FSN puts it on the site!)
My nickname for McLouth - "Pittsburgh Nate" - is all over Twitter these days. I don't know what to do with that. It's strange to see something you created get picked up.
I know I have no say at all, and I didn't like them when they first debuted, but I have grown to love the navy road tops. I like them better than the gray tops - they look better on all the boys, and make everyone look slim (in a nice way - not calling anyone fat). Does the starting pitcher still choose the jersey of the day?
The header has another few tweaks - I work part-time with a professional photographer, and she helped me with her pro Lightroom to sharpen the pic and rearrange the text in a pleasing way. You should hire her for all your photography needs. She did my profile pic / twitter pic, and I'm notoriously camera shy, so if she got a pic or a dozen I'm happy with, that's pretty amazing. :D
