I like baseball.  That’s not exactly a secret, I suppose.

But what you folks might not realize is that I like baseball just for the sake of baseball itself.  What I mean by that is that I enjoy watching baseball even when I don’t have a particular rooting interest.  Weird, but true.

If you don’t appreciate the intricacies of baseball, then you’re probably stupid.  Or just not watching closely enough.  Or maybe both.

Seriously, I’m really not joking here.  Just about every person I’ve ever met who has made it their passion to tell me how much they hate baseball?  Well, they mostly turned out to be either stupid or not particularly observant.  Or both.  Sorry, but it’s true.

Stadiums

Years ago, a good friend of mine, and myself, toured the east coast hitting various Minor League parks.  It was fun to say the least.  I wouldn’t trade that for anything.

Moreover, I always thought someday that I’d do a summer tour of Major League parks as well.  Unfortunately, so far, that hasn’t happened.  But I still hope.

That being said, I have managed to hit several Major league parks from time to time….

  • Baltimore (obviously) – Memorial Stadium (before it was gone), also of course, Camden Yards
  • Philadelphia – Veterans Stadium (before it was gone)
  • Pittsburgh – Three Rivers Stadium (before it was gone)
  • New York – Old Yankee Stadium (before it was gone)
  • Cincinnati – Riverfront Stadium (before it was gone)
  • Cleveland – Municipal Stadium (before it was gone)
  • Atlanta – Fulton County Stadium (before it was gone)

Wow, this is getting depressing now.  I think I need to update my baseball stadium resume.  Starting now….

Petco Park

I’ve never been to Petco, before.  But by the time you read this, I will have been there.  And still will be….unless they’ve kicked me out by now.  Hopefully not, but….  No promises.

And I am very much looking forward to it.  Low Commander of the Super Soldiers, a few of his closest friends, and myself will be seated in Petco tonight, getting ready to watch the Padres host the Cards.

Look how fucking cool that place looks.  If you don’t see beauty there, then I don’t even know you.

Go ahead, it’s OK.  You can admit that you’re jealous.  Really…It’s OK.  I would be jealous too if I wasn’t there right now.  Honestly.  But I am there right now.

Suck it, peasants.

(And that ladies and gentlemen, is called karma)

((Keep reading below))

Last Minute Addendum

Aaaaaaand, you can forget all of that I wrote up there.  “Circumstances” have made it such that I couldn’t get to San Diego on time tonight.  I’m very disappointed.

I also might need to call a plumber, but that’s a whole other matter.  Never you mind about that!!!!!

However, LCSS has assured me that he and his peeps will still go to the game and have some fun for me.

So in honor of those fine folks, the theme remains the same.

Plus running in and out of the bathroom gives me little time to change it at this point anyway,  sooooo…..  Yeah.

So, Some Baseball Sexy

Yes, I did a baseball theme last year, I know.  But this year, in observance of tonight’s attendance, it’s a Padres’ and Cardinals’ girls Sexy night.

Don’t like it?  Tough shit.  I won’t be around to hear your complaints because I’m at a baseball game in San Diego.  Probably drunk.  Possibly high.  So how much of a fuck do you think I give right now?

Exactly.

But I do hope you enjoy….

Ooooof.  I’d like to have batting practice with her.  Holy shit.

OK.  That’s it.  Soooooo….. In the words of Charlie Kelly…

That’s baseball, baby!!!  California, USA.  What do now?  They got chicken in Philly?

Why Charlie, that’s my favorite kind of girl.  How fortunate.

Also…this guy was hanging outside my window yesterday afternoon.  I thought the price was fair, but by the time I got downstairs he had moved on.

I am dealing with the Yankees two game losing streak by getting hammered. The fact that it’s Friday is mere coincidence, I assure you.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to Yankees twitter to demand that Boone be fired because 26-11 is a shit record. Or something.

I love baseball, but baseball fans can eat a bag of dicks.

Not sure if any of you guys are deadheads, but I found a documentary on Amazon Prime called “Long Strange Trip” that is amazing. I put it on expecting to hate it and turn it off after ten minutes, but it’s really tremendous. Rich with early home movies of Jerry and Pigpen. And their roadies are the baddest motherfuckers in rock and roll history. It’s six one hour episodes and absolutely worth a watch.

If I get in a fight tonight, will it be because that dude saw me staring at his lady’s cleavage, or because lady BFC saw it?

If you were looking at her cleavage it’s because you were supposed to. That’s why she was sticking her tits out. Sorry but it’s true.

It’s not that I hate baseball, I just had bad luck with it.

I quit playing baseball my little league year. Me and my former best friend were coached by my BF’s dad. My BF’s dad was a lunatic who only put his son at pitcher. Shocking, I know. Anyway, I was the coach’s whipping boy, out of sheer bitterness that I was better than his son. During a playoffs game, we all were complaining about the shitty umps, but the coach signalled me out and tore into me. So I picked up my glove, grabbed my bat and quit. Another kid’s father heard this and took his kid out.

But at least I had my favorite team doing well, the Montreal Expos. …

Baseball and I were not meant to be.

Brick Meathook

Did the announcer just say that there’s another month of hockey?

How long does this go for? How many rounds are there?

Wakezilla

There’s 4 rounds and it’s 2 months long. It easily could be 4-6 weeks long, but, shitty scheduling has made the Playoffs drag on seemingly forever

Brick Meathook

Great fucking hustle? As for me, I need to do some more traveling, as here’s my list.

Old Yankee Stadium (obviously, the last game I went to there was the ’08 ASG which was a blast)
Camden Yards (they were heckling Jermaine Dye all game)
Shea Stadium (went to one game with my graduating HS class… Felix Hernandez hit a grand slam)
New Yankee Stadium (first game was A-Rod’s 600th homer)
Citi Field

If you feel better you can still make it to Dodger Stadium and The Big A which both have home games tonight, tomorrow, and Sunday. Get a cheap nose bleed seat and get high with my bowl. Drive to downtown L.A. and take an Uber to Dodger Stadium or take the special Angels train from Union Station direct to the Anaheim stadium. The train costs $7 round trip.

This is an excellent plan.

I’ve watched games at Dodger Stadium and Anaheim Stadium.

I’ve taken the tour at the Diamondbacks stadium including getting an up close view of the pool and the dugouts.

I’ve spit on Fenway Park.

SonOfSpam

I was with a party (PARTY) who rented the pool suite at Chase.

Felt like a fucking millionaire for a day.

Stadiums that I have been to ranked.
1. PNC Park in Yinzerville. Great facility good food, good beer, and Cutch was a weapon.
2. Rockies Field. I was super high and super drunk and I still remember it.
3. Safeco – Good beer, great location.
4. The Big O! Was 18 in 94 and went to Uni in Mtl for the summer. They were fucking robbed by the strike. It was a shithole but was a party atmosphere.
5. Prudential or whatever the fuck in Cleveland. They serve chicken and waffle burger with no hot sauce. There is no hot sauce anywhere in that place. I searched.
6. Rogers. Beer is expensive and there are douchebags everywhere
7. Whatever the hell the White Sox play in. Boring atmosphere, I was really hungover
8. Metrodome. I really liked how the revolving doors sucked you in to the building.
9. Kingdome. What. A. Shithole
10. Fenway because it rained.

I think that’s it. Shit I thought it’d be more.

I really would have like to have gone to Wrigley the weekend I was there a couple years back. It was hot and sunny for 5 days. You are from there, is it really just a beer garden?

The bleachers are a legit shitshow, but as a perpetual 80 year old, I enjoy the bond with the old fogies keeping score.

Waaaaay too many Cardinals fans in there.

ballsofsteelandfury

I never miss playoff baseball because every pitch is a tense and dramatic thing. The strategy and everything surrounding the action is enthralling.

However, when there are 162 games in the regular season, I can’t muster up the energy.

Hockey is similar. I absolutely adore playoff hockey and May is the best month of the sports year because there is a playoff game almost every day. Regular season, though, it is hard to care that much.

Given that, hey look! Caps and Lightning are about to start!
