    Timing might not be ideal, but you're ahead of the game if it's anything but 'Please send money!' Sounds like a fun way to finish the weekend.

    I remember reading The Onion Field when I was like 6. The nosey neighbor lady chewed my Mom out for letting me read that. My Mom just shrugged and said, "he read The Naked and the Dead last week, just because it had Naked in the title".

    Comiskey Park, the Onion Field of Dreams.

    / was trying to figure out how to work the novel in as a setup - tough because it's in LA - then found that Gibby did the honors for me in the meantime

    Good effort by Santana. His instinct (from what little I've seen) has been to turn and play balls off the wall but the jumping catch at the wall is part of the CF repertoire, and he's started to do that.

    She just graduated from HS last week. She hasn't even had a practice with them yet. It's just an exhibition, she's nervous, but she will kick butt. It's a shame she is only 5'6". She is one of the best setters I have ever watched play.

    Just think how much more popular Catcher in the Rye would have been with a more suggestive title than one implying baseball and agriculture.

    One of the most frustrating things about the Twins pitching staff. Even when a team doesn't care if they strikeout like Houston, the Twins still can't strike them out.

    A Setter? That's her photo you use for your avatar?

    I thought she looked more like a Weimaraner.

    I think I read Catcher in the Rye by accident. I thought it was about baseball and all it did was make me angry at John Lennon.

    I was once a "Rough Coated Painter" so I got fired from my painting job.
