Speaking of my trip to Texas, it's weird...they really are cowboys down there. I'm walking out of the free breakfast at the hotel, and somebody in a huge ten gallen cowboy hat asks if anyone wanted to help round up 18 steers.

 

I told him "Sure, friend...20."

Speaking of Moose and Squirrel, back during my former life I was stationed at a NATO headquarters in Italy. We had an older Italian NCO working with us whose English, while better than my Italian, was pretty rough.

I told him about "Wassamatta U" and how it stood for "what is the matter with you?"

He thought that was the funniest thing he had ever heard.

I'm in a little bit of trouble with Mrs Chief, and I don't get it. She claims I don't appreciate her, don't listen to her, don't UNDERSTAND her. You know, all the normal, baseless complaints a wife lists about her hard working, faithful husband. blah blah blah.

 

Anywho, I agree to see a marriage counselor, just to keep her quiet. I don't get it, but after our first visit, things seem even worse. 

 

Things were going fine, until the nice lady asked me "And what's your wife's favorite flower?"

 

Well, I thought a minute--and I have to admit I needed to think a minute--and suddenly it came to me.

 

"GOLD MEDAL" I beamed.

So, like 50 pitches for Nova and 3 swinging strikes if I counted right.

Gibson has three in his 19 pitches.

Took me a bit, but probably because I have trouble with 2 + 2.

I keep thinking there will be a case of the struggles down the line but I thought I would have seen that by now.

The good news about Gibson - he's good against bad teams, which means he's probably going to have a great outing tonight.
