Don't ask me... ask Barry!

Usually I don't notice that baseball exists until about... August (need July to recover from the Stanley Cup Final, lech at the babies in the draft). But because I got more into baseball last season and I now listen to sports talk radio almost daily, and there's a whole circus surrounding Barry Bonds (and Barry Zito, to a lesser extent) I've noticed the bizarre rite known as "spring training".



Hee!

I have to admit that going to a Giants game and watching Zito or Matt Cain pitch, getting a hot dog and garlic fries (or maybe a hot fudge sundae! *faints*) sounds like a nice time to me (ignoring the part where I'll be freezing my ass off in June and that, oh yeah, it's the Giants :P).

I enjoy going to A's games more, but SF does have a newer park and it's so near. I could even walk there from my office except that I totally wouldn't cos' it would mean walking through Bummage Central. I would just pick up the super cheap $10 seats (nosebleeds, not bleachers. I'm terrified of the bleachers because I think a ball will hit me. I know that's why people like to be there, but I don't like it when things are thrown at me).

I sense some sort of massacre coming in the Oilers/Senators game.

I love PacBell SBC AT&T Park. And if you went some day I could go, I would totally love to! Especially if they're playing the Cubs.

Excellent! Both times I went I spent all game making fun of the Giants, haha.

Are you going to the NHL Draft? I'm seriously thinking about it because at least two of our baby boys will be there.

*giggle* Nah. If it were in San Jose sure, but I think I'm happy just watching on TV.

Part of me wants to laugh, and the other part of me wants to box up Barry Bonds and ship him far, far away from Zito! (And away from California, America . . . baseball . . . hee.)

Ahhh, I have the same problem! Even (technically great) seats at hockey games freak me out. I choose to be behind the netting!

I expect it to be . . . uh. Interesting. I'm not sure how yet, though.

The T-shirts were Barry Bonds' idea!

You can make a drinking game of it. Drink every time Petr adjusts his crotch on screen.

Haha, really? Damn it, they are funny.

I'm taking this advice, but so far I haven't seen him adjust at all! Stupid Sens broadcast; I feel so cheated.

I got hit in the head with a hockey puck once at a WMU game. After I made sure I had the puck in my possession, I was like, "WOOOOO!!!!!" and joking around. It was great. And I still sit in the same seat I was in when I got hit.

See, I'm the opposite. I sit right on the glass at WMU hockey games because A: I love the view, and B: it amuses me when hockey players and pucks coming slamming into the glass in front of me.

Oh, well, hockey is totally different. There's tons more foul balls that go into the crowd than hockey pucks.

Lord, I wish I would've known! I've been a huge baseball fan all my life, so Spring Training is definitely a phenomenon.

Especially in Red Sox Nation, of which I am a part of. They make a big deal about the equipment truck leaving Fenway to go to Florida. Seriously. They have a rally.

In fact, I think some people get more excited about Truck day than when pitchers and catchers report.

Haha, that's pretty funny. It's all about the party?

I don't know if it's even really about the rally. It's just.. the truck leaving is the official start of baseball season for some people. That is how much they miss it in the offseason and it's just that big of a part of their lives.

frankly, i'm glad i have hockey for the offseasons. heh
