Saturday salutations

Leave a comment

I accomplished a few things today so I’m feeling pleased sitting here at the end of the day. I know I made a few people happy and what more can you ask of a day. Although I wish I was more productive this weekend. It’s been a good one and I don’t take those for granted but I do regret missing opportunities. Maybe I can make up for it a bit this evening.

I can’t believe its almost baseball time again. I hope this off-season doesn’t taint the game too much. One because I still enjoy the game and have a team that is going to contend to cheer for.

I’d like to report a STOLEN BASE.

Cheating doesn’t seem to be taken with the same contempt as it once was. Not sure where it was exchanged for the integrity of the game but it seems to just keep repeating itself through history. It’s very sad. For what is left that we can believe in? Only time and integrity of those who play it and own the teams can restore it.

I think I’m going to make more of an effort to get to the park and catch a few games this year. Maybe a family outing or a few trips with the boys. I mean I’m right between the Nationals and Orioles parks so I can see the National and American league teams. Why not take advantage of a warm afternoon and play hooky one day.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Action is better than inaction when it comes to most things.
  • I think I’ll take the action of hitting the sack before midnight this evening.
