Sidenote Saturdays: Sorry, Luke Skywalker
Saturday, April 05, 2008
Happy Saturday, friends and foes! No work, no school, and, best of all, Sidenote Saturdays on YC!
-----------------------------------

There is an article about me in the Buffalo News today. Check it out!
http://www.buffalonews.com/opinion/columns/othersports/story/315991.html
-----------------------------------

I have a baby blanket that I sleep with Every night. Its name is Quilty.
-----------------------------------

Mike Hampton and Carl Pavano should get married and have embarrassingly injury-prone babies together.
-----------------------------------

I am such a friendless dork that I have actually been to baseball games ALONE.
-----------------------------------

I met Tony Gwynn at the NAB Conference last year (sidenote within a sidenote: I'll be there again this year) and I was so impressed by him. Extremely friendly, approachable, and down to earth.
-----------------------------------

Why are baseball players so damn sensitive? Any time a player shows the slightest twinkling of emotion the opposing batter or pitcher gets offended and bitter. Last year the Mets were always having fun and the rest of the NL was all up in arms about it after playing them... but in other sports anything goes:


-----------------------------------
Speaking of the Mets, they are about to get Rickrolled:

-----------------------------------

I have never seen a single minute of the Star Wars saga and I have no intention of doing so.
-----------------------------------

Well, that's all I can think of for today. The Yanks blew it again today, so I'm a tad bummed. Perhaps I'll write something about the pathetic display the Yanks have put up over the past two games in a bit!

Read last week's Sidenote Saturdays: Way to Go, Mexico!

    Hey, what's wrong with going to baseball games alone? That's what I'm planning on doing tomorrow if its not raining here in Atlanta... Of course, I too am a friendless dork. Congrats on the Buffalo news piece! Go Sabres (well, next season...)

    Hey Maureen!
    Nice piece in the Buffalo News!
    Bummer about today's game. Bats need to come alive. The errors don't help either... Oh well, there's another chance tomorrow.
    Keep up the great work!

    The Buffalo News put together quite a nice article about you. Buffalo holds a special place in my heart since I went to college out there. Keep posting and we will all keep reading.

    99% of us have gone to games alone.

    o Nice piece in the Buffalo paper =)

    o Ditto on going to games alone, we've all done it, lol

    o Say "I'll call you Quilty, because you're a quilt," in your best G.W. Bush voice. Laugh. Repeat.

    o I read on the Daily News that Frank Thomas didn't care that Jobamania gave him the fist pump. It seems like its only the New York media that's making a big deal about it. Is only El Capitan Derek allowed to fist pump now? Michael Kay doesn't seem to have a problem with that. Nobody complains when Manny poses at home plate after jacking one over the Green Monster. Nobody told the Juicy Juice Twins, Jose and Mark, that they shouldn't smash their popeye sized forearms together because it showed up the normal sized humans on their own team like Walt Weiss and Eck. Using the logic of the New York media, Old Man Schilling should've been forced to change his bloody sock because he was just rubbing it in all of our faces how much of a better human being that he is than the rest of us. (And that was a waste of blood, after all, we all know that Curt Schilling's blood cures chikungunya fever in small African children.) Give Jobamania a break. He struck out his boyhood hero. If I had just K'd Donnie Dinger, I would fist pump, too.

    And you can't tell me that if Suzy Waldman got dinged by a foul ball, Michael Kay wouldn't fist pump.... =p


    And darn you, YC, I think that I just used my best material on comments on your site, and have nothing for myself, lol =)

    I have friends, but sometimes I just LIKE going to games alone! :) Less distraction! I really like your blog, despite the fact you're a Yankees fan! :)

Granderson "shares the lessons that he learned growing up--the importance of family and choosing the right friends, the power of listening and staying positive, and most important, the value of being yourself."
