Not at all. She loved it.


I must have read that wrong... For 9 months... I was a wreck... If a Dr. Would have prescribed Bed Rest... I would have asked the Dr. To move in with us.

We haven't been the same since SARS......Tie Domi is part Gorilla, immune to human flu viruses. Either that or he doesn't know the difference between the flu and the permanent concussion he has.


I've always assumed that Canadians rarely report having the flu because:

A. Constant Cold Weather builds up the immune system
B. Lack of human hygiene builds up the immune system.
C. Hangovers every morning can feel like the flu so when they actually get the flu... They can't tell the difference.

People who drink continuously don't get hangovers.
In fact, they get reverse hangovers. They feel awful if they wake up after a night of being sober.

I'm going need some experienced confirmation.

Hey North... Is this true?

I didn't put a smiley face on it that time, but when it doubt, if you think you read it wrong, I was joking.

This saves me from when I type something flat out wrong.* "I was joking. Duh."

/ * Yes, this means I'm joking all the time.

LOL... Pregnancy was the thing that freaked me out most in my life... It was seriously 9 months of me soaking in worry and everything went perfectly fine.

Once my sons were born... I threw them around... I let them put pennies in the outlet... I didnt worry much anymore.

But... The pregnancy part. I was a wimpy piece of jelly.

I'm excited to watch Bonderman today. I love watching these guys that haven't pitched in a few years try to make comebacks like Bonderman, Chris Young, Kazmir, Harden, etc.

One of my fondest Metrodome memories was of Bondmerman carrying a one hitter into the eighth and then getting Dome-balled into a loss with a bunch of choppers and then him melting down and kicking the water cooler in the dugout.

I agree... Baseball has tons of sub plots that make the game beyond interesting for me.

I'm also excited to watch Herrmann play. He has to be gulping a bit.

That was a Blackburn inning of 2008 if ever I've seen one.

He threw well if throwing well means finding the wheelhouse.

Every ball was tagged pretty good. Good Fortune to escape without damage... Let's see if can settle down going forward.

The Twins were apparently playing indoor baseball in 2010 per Dick. He must be referring to games in Tampa.

Bonderman is looking very sharp today. Hitting the corners and keeping the ball down.

It was just one inning... Plenty of time for rusty mistakes.

Hopefully The Twins are more inclined to exploit them... Yesterday they were not.
