Fill ‘Em Up!

Aah, postseason baseball… Everyone’s a little on edge.  Professional athletes (even the seasoned ones) get jitters. Fans are barely holding onto their sanity.  Winners, losers, adrenaline, infield fly primers….  all part of the drama.  And from what I can tell, there are two ways to dwell in this unique era (not “error”, mind you… that’s something entirely different despite what the TBS broadcast sounds like during a Cards/Nats game.)...

Has it been this long?

So, this blogging thing is like riding a bike… right?? This season has been a crazy, hot MESS (and I’m not even talking about the baseball stuff yet.)  Angela had a wedding to plan.  I had a family to pack up and move to a new town.  Needless to say, we’ve both been spread thinner than the bullpen back in April and May.

What is it about baseball’s sleeper moments that resonate with some of us so completely?  I regularly get the chance to admire Cardinals like Berkman, Albert Pujols and Matt Holliday smacking it out of the park, but...

Baby Birds Weekend Update

The Memphis Redbirds have won the first two games in their current series against the Oklahoma City Redhawks, and I was in heaven there at the ballpark this weekend for all the baby bird fun.  The two games were very different experiences, both wonderful in their own way.  The first game, Saturday, was an evening game with the family – the kiddos, Hubby, me and my Mom.  We laughed and chatted about the players, cheered on our boys and...
