Net take one buck after paying a bored 6 year old in your row a dollar to do the actual scratching off.


Nope... Price is up to 5 bucks now. Kids are passing by dollars lying on the street now.

Well, the Twins got Ricky a lead ... let's see what hee can do with it.

I think the key to Ricky Nolasco winning games is to never get him a lead.

 

/ wait, what?

You're probably right, but then there's my weird ability to sometimes be able to Tom Sawyer kids into getting fired up about doing boring, repetitive tasks.Not always, but a thing of beauty when it works.

That actually works if you think of it as distinct from him being credited with a Win.Somewhere you can probably see what the team's record is when he starts games.

 

Not going to look though, because as noted earlier, lazy, but even more so because I fear that looking it up might take away my last hope that there's a way the Twins get value from his contract.

Croutons in salad?

If you just put the lettuce and dressing and tomatoes in between toast. It'll be the same thing.

Croutons in there is kinda like a salad sandwich.

Use mayonnaise as the dressing and sprinkle in some bacon bits, and you basically have a BLT if you include croutons.

Strawberry hits a homer.

Smithers:"Brilliant strategy, sir."

That's kind of like when you're completely full at OC Buffet and starting to think about laying down on the floor with your sweat pants untied, and somebody at your table shows up with the most tempting dessert ever, which you missed but now will make the whole experience seem like a mistake.
