Dickbert: "If Florimon hits one out here, it'll be his first as a RH batter this year."

Carnac: Jamey Carroll.
Ed: Jamey Carroll. Fine player. Gritty. Solid. A gamer.
Carnac: (double take) Thank you for the insights, Vin Scully.
Ed: I appreciate the game played the right way, Your Magnificence.
Carnac: May the fleas of a thousand reindeer infest your Christmas tree.
Ed: (But Johnny, it's not Christm... never mind.) Hey yo! And the envelope?
Carnac: Who is the oldest major leaguer to achieve his 1000th hit?
Ed: That's not a Carnac question.
Carnac: I know. I just wanted to throw that out there for consideration.

I thought the Twins would be to young to remember a 154 game season, guess not.

I've been to one in Japan. About 20 yrs ago. In Hamamatsu.


We lived in Japan for 6 1/2 yrs. Loved it.


They have DQs in America too. You should try one.

I grew up with a DQ sign flashing into my bedroom window when I was a kid. It was some kind of subliminal mind control ... I have a difficult time NOT stopping at a DQ when I see one.

Did you get to see Nishi play?

I don't think so. We left in 2003 and I don't think he was in the "majors" there yet. Not sure. I did watch a decent amount of baseball there. I lived less than an hour from the Seibu Lions home park.

I have the same problem when driving through the red light district.

I think that was prolly the lights on the cop cars, and your parents just told you it was a "flashing DQ sign."

Sometimes great minds think alike. And then, there's me and Chief.

There are Japanese women there, which is obviously a very good thing.

You're welcome. Of course, the Twins had Ron Davis, the Indians not so much

Any of you do TRX or ViPR workouts?

No, but lately I've been doing some PBR.

I read somewhere it's got the highest concentration of Japanese women of any country in the world.
