NESN will do that to you.

What I find amusing is how many people carp about Dick and Bert. However, when you listen to people like Hawk, Gubicza, Suzyn Waldman and yes, the NESN announcers, you quickly realize that Dick and Bert pretty good in comparison.

Or at least no worse.

I'm smoking a tri-tip for tacos today. Yes, I'm rubbing it in. Smoked a meatloaf this last week. It was outstanding.


Mmmm, never would have thought about smoking meatloaf... Just grilled Kentucky bourbon marinated chicken kabobs and made a smokehouse macaroni salad for dinner.

It is too bad that we are so focused on us that we cannot accept and appreciate the World Classic.  It really is a great thing and I hope it expands and creates even more acceptance.

I'm just not a big fan of it but have watched some of it. Last nights game between the US and DR was pretty good baseball watching.

I use my pellet grill for all kinds of things.

 

If it's ovenable, it's grillable! ® :)

This is the last ST game I will be watching from afar. Well, sort of. I won't be at all the remaining games, just the ones in Fort Myers. But I'll still be in Florida so the away games will still be watched not from afar but from nearer.

 

The Twins game yesterday ... um ... no comment.

 

But when I got home from work last night, I turned on the action of the WBC. As some of you know, I'm not the biggest fan of the WBC, but hey, it's still baseball. As long as it's there, I'll watch it here and there. And what a game to catch. All kinds of excitement. Everyone is abuzz about Stanton's homerun, but for me it was Adam Jones' catch in deep, right center, robbing his Orioles teammate, Manny Machado, of a homerun that could have been a difference maker. In the end, I think that catch was the difference maker, and the turn of the game. The U.S. went on to win the game 6-3 over the Domican Republic 'dream team', eliminating them from the tournament. Anyway ... and now it's today.

 

Twins travel the far 6 miles over to JetBlue Park. Haley is getting the start ... okay ...

Sigh. I keep telling myself I'm going to make it to Spring Training. One of these decades. Hopefully, before I run out of decades.

If my parents didn't live here, I wouldn't go every year, but I'd certainly try to make it every so often. It's really a worthwhile trip to do at least once in your lifetime.

"Precautionary measures for left triceps tightness."

Shoot- at my advanced age, left tricep tightness is something to look forward to.  It'd prove I still had a left tricep, for one thing...  and probably take the mind off all the other things that creak and groan every morning!

Only in the form of an answer. Sort of a reverse Jeopardy.
