oh well

phillies won the world series. oh well. not much you can do about that. i'm kinda nonchalant about this partially 'cause none of my buddies were in the series so i don't really have a reason to care, and i have other things to hyperventilate about right now, like my thesis paper.

something to cheer anyone up:

just a quick post

you know, to give the illusion that i'm updating when i'm really not 'cause i have a lot of homework. but who really wants to do a campaign for the election of 1912 or redo a vinegar/baking soda lab report?

(ha, i didn't realize that i typed this at 4:44. ha ha 4 :D. and what a coincidence that this is the 3yr anniversary of me meeting the real #4 (long story, don't ask). wow. what a small world.)

i think this might work to my advantage

as much as i was kinda surprised when i read the boston dirt dogs feed from a few days ago (how the sox were considering trading lowell), i started thinking and part of me remembered that before last season, alex had signed a 1-year contract with the royals. needless to say, i put two and two together and discovered that this has a very slight chance of working (at least in the world of mandachan where everything works out to my advantage. after all, 2 + 2 does equal 4 :D). of course, the royals need to be willing to give up alex, which i don't really see happening (he's one of their best players), but they wouldn't have a problem filling the spot (they have teahen and seven bajillion 1B-OF who could play position musical chairs). that would make my life as a divided loyalty fan a LOT easier, though.

just thinking out loud.

another another real quick post

mr. big nose is pitching tonight!
just had to get that out there. nothing interesting since wednesday, sorry.

let's go... *ugh, fine* rays.

Wednesday, October 22, 2008


world series game 1 tonight. still don't know who to root for. i guess i'll go for the rays 'cause they're in the american league. and because evan longoria is awesome (that really is the hot corner, isn't it?).

this is really boring now. oh well. let's go *gulp* rays.
(that really bums me out for having to say that, ya know.)

*punches pillow with fist*

(what i did this morning after hearing about the score)
darn those rays. darn matt garza, aka mr. big nose (there, david, that was my 'i hate matt garza' post). and finally, i'm ashamed to say darn the offense. it wasn't lester's fault, he gave up 3 runs over 7 innings, that's pretty darn good. ('course, it would've been awesome if he pulled a may 19th...) oh well, you win some, you lose some, you have bad days (been there before, let me tell you that). and now i don't know who to root for in the world series, 'cause i don't like the phillies and i don't like the rays, mostly for beating the red sox. now would be the time for spontaneous dugout combustion(jk). guess we'll just have to wait til spring training. or the season opener, which is against the rays (who's cruel idea was that?!?!). or july 9-12 or sept 21-24, when they play the royals.

on a lighter note, they had the yahoo players choice awards for outstanding pitcher today, and i'm happy 'cause lincecum got it for the NL (cliff lee got it for the AL, duh) and he's just totally awesome. (here's the video. he's so adorable.)

one last time for 2008: let's go red sox!
and royals!

Saturday, October 18, 2008

do or die

ok, i know that if the sox don't win at the trop tonight, the dugout won't just spontaneously combust, but losing tonight's game would mean bye-bye world series and all those people who bought furniture at jordan's would actually have to pay for their couches or tables or whatever. not to mentioned that homecoming night would be ruined for me, but that's a minor side note.

so as a final good luck, let's go red sox!

comeback kings of the century!

heck yeah!
ok, i admit, i stopped watching it after matsuzaka gave up those 2 homers in a row because they were down 5-zip and i'm like, 'oop, it's over. when's spring training?'
so when my mom was checking the weather this morning and she said 'the red sox won!', i was like 'WHAT?!?!', dropped everything and ran into the computer. yay for late-game rallies!

(picture courtesy of the boston dirt dogs feed on google reader)

lets go red sox! woo!

bullpen blowup much?

all i can say is that the rays better not win tomorrow night (it'd be even better if they didn't win saturday or sunday, either...) I know we've gotten out of the 3-1 hole before (cripes, we've gotten out of a 3-0 hole), but this ain't lookin' too good. (hence the reason why i wore my alex jersey on top of my ellsbury shirt for sports day today)
oh well. could be worse.

*scoffs* aww, i wish i lived closer to the big K (that being kauffman stadium), or at least was in the vicinity on sept. 20th for the 'shirts off their backs' hooflah (scroll down to the bottom) 'cause then i would've had a chance to meet alex and get an autographed jersey. i'm bummed. (although, game-fresh jersey, game-fresh dirt and sweat... but still! what might've been an opportunity to meet one of my buddies!)

lost 9-1. dang. here we go again. (which reminds me of that song by ok go which has another one of the awesomest music videos ever...)
although, as long as the rays don't win the next two, i'll have some form of entertainment while i'm selling drinks and crap at homecoming. they actually had the game on in the teachers' lounge last year, so i'd be in the gym, come out for a drink, check the score, go back in the gym, come out for a drink, check the score... you get the idea. (i think they won 13-1 that game against cleveland)

anyway... estoy happy 'cause i actually passed the mile for once (9:28, which isn't totally impressive, but i'm happy i passed). and i got taken down by a football player today in ultimate frisbee in gym, which really hurt but it was kinda funny. totally my fault.

(7:47pm- awww, psssht, i might as well not even watch tonight's game. ellsbury's not playing. and yikes lowell is out for the season and has to get hip surgery. good luck, lowell! we'll miss you!)

Monday, October 13, 2008


well, happy día de la raza, since my spanish classes have scarred me for life and made me realize that we're getting a day off in remembrance for some mass-murderer (columbus ended up killing off an entire tribe of west indies natives, either by physically killing them through slavery or killing them with diseases from europe)

on a lighter note, i was watching vh1 this morning and one of these really cool 'you oughta know' artists kinda struck me as... well, i can't really put an adjective to it, but he has the same last name as me so i was thinking wouldn't it be cool if he was my long-lost cousin or something. i wouldn't put it past that, since my dad's family is humonsterous and i've only met a handful of relatives.
(and the other thing was that he kinda looked like a younger version of jason bay, but that's aside the point. i might be related to someone famous!)

and this has nothing to do with anything i talked about, but you have to check out the music video for 'so what' by pink. it's hilarious and totally random and it's just awesome.

and this also has nothing to do with what i was talking about, but david sent me the link to this article. it's funny. and the comments are pretty great too.

Sunday, October 12, 2008


they lost, 9-8 in 11. and going by the boston dirt dogs google reader thing, ellsbury did absolutely nothing. i'll doublecheck that. (yup, 0-fer. oh well. i've been there before.)

oh well. game 3 on monday. garza vs. lester (garza has a funny mug, btw)

Saturday, October 11, 2008


yay sox won game 1, 2-zip! woo! matsuzaka had a no-hitter into the 7th and ended up only giving up 4 hits (and no runs, obviously). (bad things: ellsbury had an 0-fer and drew got hit by a pitch and was on the ground)

and that's it for my recap. game 2, coming up!

Friday, October 10, 2008

friday night baseball!

ALCS game 1, here we come! i'm pretty sure it's matsuzaka vs. shields.
woo! lets go sox!

and here's an interesting map i found:

just something to think about.

Wednesday, October 8, 2008

half day = half post

mostly 'cause nothing really noteworthy has happened since yesterday. except for the fact that i got attacked by a binder and now have a big scratch on my arm.

however, i highly suggest you check out the yahoo! sports picture gallery for the sox 'cause it is hilarious. and ellsbury's blog has some awesome stuff, as usual.

so have fun. will post again when anything interesting comes up.

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

woo! ALCS!

this post is self-explanatory. and so is the picture. yay sox!

and now i am going to eat lunch 'cause i had to make up a drawing assignment at lunch and ran out of time and i am hungry.

(and by the way, it's casey and ellsbury, just in case you couldn't tell)

*shakes head*

shaking head for 2 reasons.
1. sox lost 5-4 in 12 last night. but i must admit, that 3-run single was AWESOME, even though i only heard it, not saw it.
2. david specifically went out of his way to google-image my buddies (which you know) and he decided to email me a very bad picture of alex from when he was in college. it must've been his yearbook picture or something 'cause he's in a suit and his hair's all slicked back. and his face is all broken out, so david must've thought it was good for getting me mad. it worked. but it made me laugh too.

that's it. game 4 (yay 4 :D) tonight, lester vs. lackey. and i have a us history essay due tomorrow grrr...

(4:31pm- for those of you who might be interested, here's the link to that terrible picture. since ellie wanted to see it, i'll put you all through the optional torture.)

this isn't really important but it made my day.
i was at the mall and i was sitting in the food court when i saw a guy in the burger king line and he was wearing a royals shirt (i could tell 'cause of the 's', he was standing sideways) so i was all 'hee hee' and i wondered who was on the back until he turned his back to us and i was like 'OMG HE'S WEARING AN ALEX SHIRT!!!!' (it was from his rookie year, the #7)

so that made my day. along with seeing that lincecum lookalike at dairy queen again

:D :D :D :D

two down, one to go

(and i know that was ellie's last comment :D)

yup, 7-5. drew and bay both had homeruns, ellsbury (and drew again) had doubles*, and papelbon out-awesomed k-rod. ALCS, here we come! woo!

meh. football game tonight for school. and i'm gonna freeze 'cause we have to wear our shortsleeved band polos AND IT GETS REALLY COLD IN THE STANDS!!!! aaugh!

*(here's ellsbury's double. and he's lookin' a little on the scruffy side, too. or maybe that's just me...)

Thursday, October 2, 2008

one down, two to go

(it's out of 5, right? yeah, i think so.)
so yeah, red sox won 4-1. lester went 7 innings with only 1 run, bay hit a 2-run homer off of lackey, and ellsbury went 3 for 5 with a double, a ribbie single, 2 stolen bases and a nice diving catch (darnit they didn't have it on a video clip).

(yeah, i know i said that i wouldn't go crazy with the postseason bloggery but i lied, ok? i have nothing better to do. and homework/studying isn't fun.)

another soxtober, baby!

yay the playoffs start tonight! and of course, the red sox (since i need to differentiate now that the white sox are in, too) are playing the angels. on the west coast. at 10-whatever pm west coast time. that sucks.

oh, and has anyone noticed that i got really lazy and haven't capitalized anything in, like, forever? not even names. i'm bad. cripes, half the time i don't even use complete sentences. or correct english, for that matter. oh well. who cares?

anyway, i believe that a let's go red sox is in order. even though it pretty much goes without saying.

yay! :D

(3:14pm- ok, this doesn't really have anything to do with the rest of the post, but i rocked again in softball, went 3 for 4. that's 7 for 10, you do the math, in the unit. 'course, it's kinda bad to think that i did better today in gym than all last season hitting-wise...)
(3:29pm- and i've decided that i hate elastics. when i have these stupid things in, i can't open my mouth enough to barely even drink out of a cup. or eat. or talk. and that's a problem.)
