My Most Unususal Christmas

Christmas 1985 had to be my most craziest Christmas! Starting, my Mom won a cruise to the Bahamas from her work, so she and my Dad went over Christmas. Since she only had 2 tickets, I had to stay with my Sister her in West Virginia. It was very boring here that week, since A few weeks before, Moorefield had pretty much been destroyed by a flood. Anyway...........Now the fun

To get to Florida to catch the cruise ship, Mom and Dad had to fly from Virginia to Miami. Mom handled the flight pretty well, but Dad just about freaked out! So after completing their cruise, which they really loved, when they got Back to Miami, Dad wouldn't get back on the plane. The only vehicle they could find was a U-Haul truck, so they drove back home in that. That still makes me laugh my ass off every time I think about it!

My Christmas List

Christmas is almost here, so here's some things I'd like to get:

1: A new VCR/DVD recorder combo.

2: Revell 1/72 USS Gato Submarine model kit.

3: Battlestar Galactica Season 3 on DVD

4: Books

5: Clothes


Trouble In Birdland

Spring Training is 2 months away, but it already looks like it's going to be a long season for my Baltimore Orioles. Lets see what's going on after a horrid 2007:

1:Traded one of their top players (Miguel Tejada)
2: Had another top player (Brian Roberts) caught up in the Steroid scandal
3: Will possibly trade their best pitcher, Erik Bedard.
4: Their closer (Chris Ray) and another top reliever (Danys Bayez) will both miss
the upcoming season due to elbow surgeries.
5: If Bedard is traded, the only experienced starter on the roster would be the
erratic Daniel Cabrera, an 18 game loser.

Here are some of my ideas to keep the 2008 season from becoming worse then
1988 was.

1: Resign Free Agent Pitcher Steve Trachsel, who the O's traded at the deadline in
July. He's an innings eater, and throws strikes.

2: Sign free agent pitcher Carlos Silva. He also eats innings, and hardly walks

3: Trade Cabrera, newly acquired Luke Scott, and 3-4 minor leaguers to the Cubs
for Kerry Wood. Wood could take over as the closer, letting Jamie Walker and
Chad Bradford resume their 7th and 8th inning relief duties.

4: Sign any free agent hitter willing to come to Baltimore.

Yesterday we had our first snow of the year. We had about 2 inches maybe. Winter is here!
