My Annual Right Of Itchy Inconvenience

Well, since it's warm out, I've been wearing my shorts and short sleeve shirts, and that means my annual dose of sun poisoning. I have been getting it for most of my life, and it really sucks, since I can't stay outside as much as I'd like. The weird thing about it is you can make it go away, but you can't keep it from happening! I can put SPF 1000 on it and I still end up one great big welt. And it itches like crazy! But, I've been putting Gold Bond on it, and that seems to be working. My Dad says to wear long sleeve shirts, but you try wearing them in 90 degree plus weather!

If it's NHL Playoff Time.....

Then It must mean that there are going to be games that go into absurdly multiple overtimes.  Seems like every year, you have a couple games that go into 3 or 4 overtimes. I can only imagine the fatigue the players must feel   when you get into the 2nd or 3rd OT.  Games like that usually end on a fluke play, because they      just have no more energy to go on. If it's bad for the players, think about the people who watch the games on TV! A game usually starts around 7-8 PM local time, and these Multiple OT games can end  at 3 in the morning or later.  And if it's a game out west, then if you're in the Easter time zone, you have to add 3 hours to that, then  sleep in the next day!  The longest one I've ever watched was a 5 OT game between Philly and Pittsburgh about 5 or 6 years ago, it ended around 2:30 AM. But when my Washington Capitals get into one, I usually turn the game off, because they usually lose the long ones.

Today's Orioles/Red Sox game was totally stomach turning! How the hell can you blow a 5 run lead with 1 out in the bottom of the 9th? During my 18 years as an Orioles fan, I've seen em blow a lot of games. but never like this one! after the first out, they O's committed 2 errors, including the catcher missing an easy popup, and the pitcher failing to cover first base on a groundout. A game like this can either bring the team together, or it can mark the beginning of a collapse. We shall see which way the O's go.

A Blast From The Past

Whilst hanging out in chat tonight, someone in voice started playing some of the music from Schoolhouse Rock. That took me back in time to when I was a little kid. Every weekend, I'd spend the weekend at my Aunt's , and on Saturday mornings, I's get up early to watch cartoons on TV, and Schoolhouse Rock was usually the first one on. Those were the days.....
