How about a long ball with runners on?

There, caught up. Not pretty, but Parm's double gives me hope.

Me too.

 

(though i'm also entertained coming up with a rhyme for hope)

What is Stealer's Wheel, Alex?

Even spelled it right.  Apparently the old K-Tel ad didn't

For Mr. Chief's sake, I hope his 7,000 post is, of course, "Winnah!"

Rafferty and Egan wrote it as a joke, IIRC.

I was just going to say Rafferty was the singer, but then I couldn't have named the other guy.

I just got a text from my best buddy. He says,"I cannot watch anymore. They can't hit, field, or run the bases. And Anderson just sits there with a blank look on his face. I can't take it."

And just to be it in some perspective, he actually loves the Twins more than me.

Text him back and let him know Anderson isn't responsible for the hitting, fielding, or baserunning.

Lol ... yep.  Or ... could just be any area of town along the lake shore ... but that's a pretty ridiculous line as there isn't an 'East side' like there is a 'North Side,' a 'West Side' and a 'South Side.'

don't forget The Loop... Which isn't really a "side" so much as a geographical area

I can't put my finger on it... But there is something nefarious about your roots.

Your Grandmas probably what... Brought Polio to America?

Just a bunch of farmers as far as I know:lol:

I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Damn it, stringer ... you were thinking it ... you put it out there in the universe with that thought ... it was your fault!

I reached 300 posts tonight, nowhere near as dramatic.  I am going to try to time my 7000th post for when we win the world series, so I need to figure out how to pace myself until October.

I had that song on an old K-Tel compilation record.  I wore that record out playing it so much - I Shot the Sheriff, Midnight Train to Georgia, Seasons in the Son, Stuck in the Middle With You... OK, I had weird taste in music in 5th grade.


That's what everyone was listening to in 1974 ... Paper Lace was #1... Somebody bought a copy.
