Bobby and I have tentatively settled on a bet for the ALCS. As of right now, it involves humorous garb to be worn at the next WPBT live event. Terms are still being debated. Anyone have Joe Seebok's phone number?
I've been wondering if the Ewing Theory (a team makes an inspiring run after losing a superstar player) applies to X? A's were 0-9 in clinching games during our monogamy. Since she went free agent and started dating, they're 1-0. And the Douchebag is a Dodger fan. The Curse of the Trampino?
I'm working from home today because of other circumstances, but it's serendipitous that I'll be on the couch when the first pitch flies. Still trying to get a ruling on what time it's kopacetic to hit the bottle.
Daytime television sucks. I happened across a show called "Naked Science" that totally didn't deliver on it's title. I'm down to PBA Bowling on ESPN Classic or Punk'd.
I'm in the embryonic stages of planning a Vegas trip. The surprising thing is, it wasn't my idea. Looks like the weekend of Dec. 8-10. Not going to be my usual decadent assault on the city, as I will likely be taking in a show. Yes, you heard that correctly. Is it considered bad manners to offer prop bets during "Phantom of the Opera?"
I just finished my first pot of coffee of the morning. That should help with the jitters. One more cup and I'll be sweating like a drug mule.
For those of you who might consider placing a fictional wager on the ALCS, you'd be wise to remember the early West Coast start means twighlight baseball in Oakland. The hitters will be in shadow and the pitcher in sun for the first few innings which means it'll be tough going at the plate. Forecast says partly cloudy tonight, so the effect might be lessened somewhat. Did I just aid and abet?
I have a parent/teacher conference today. I expect glowing reports on my boy, but considering past events, I hope the words "Omaha" and "Jackass" don't come up.
Is it 5 oclock yet?
