Seriously, that was awesome. That’s baseball, drama and when (I’m sorry I forgot who Buck’s broadcast partner was) said his hands were sweaty during the bottom of the ninth run. I smiled. I love it .. and it’s frickin March!

MLB.com you need to integrate that site with this blog section. Every pic, stat, profile vid .etc needs to be instantly bloggable with 1 click! I can’t even find a good pic gallery from last night. Pretty much anywhere. Fox Sports photo galleries are a joke. ESPN isn’t cutting it and usually Yahoo sports has the most … only has one and 50 million from SK vs Japan. Which is good, cuz I passed out after the USA win.

I wanted to post after Rios smashed one, the Delgado after! I waved my imaginary Puerto Rican Jays flag all over. Then Rios got another RBI and I hope he doesn’t break anything. Then again he’s now out (and the rest of the Mets starting lineup save for Wright who ironically put them out) so phew. Rios survived! ahaha.

When Bernie stepped in, I held onto my Yankee cap and then he pooted a nubbler to 1st. Oh well. This game was hyped already then that Beltran snag off Brian. whooo boy that calls for Mel Allen “How about that!??!”.

I swear I thought Youk was gonna K or DP and end it. Walking in the 4th run. Then the Wright smash. Unbelievable. I wish I was at THAT game! It reminded me of USA vs Canada game. I love that Team USA has the passion. Yes JP you will NEVER live it down.

The only pic I really want is the post win Youkilis face. I wish I could get a shot of it. It was during the mound jubilation. His face was the epitome of celebration for athletes: Relief, Excitement, Pride, and a whole lotta YEAAAAAAHHH!!!!!!!!!. I figured at least Boston Dirt Dogs or other Red Sox sites would have found it. But no, they TYPICALLY decide that being a Sox Nation member means too intrinsically hate on the Yanks, in this era particularly A-Rod and his Details mag photoshoot. A shoot, set up by a photographer, who is artsy. Big deal, he loves himself. Shouldn’t he? HATORZZ!111! ahah. But it’s true, people are hating cuz he’s fly. Dumb people. Concentrate on yourself maybe once. ahah.

Ps that Leprechaun pic is at the top because that’s the funniest pic I found while searching for pics. The runner up….

Silver King no likey Mehico losing.

Final WBC thought (for today). I assume Japan will beat Cuba and take the final spot. So the “final four” will be South Korea, Venezuela, USA and Japan with the latter 2 being (on paper) the strongest and most powerful baseball nations actually becoming the weaker 2 teams so far. SK and Venez are on that tournament/playoff hot streak. Venezuela may have had too many games off (the biggest gripe so far) that may slow them. South Korea looks so dominant. Maybe I’ll get to see them when I’m not falling asleep.

Predictionne … SK vs Venezuela in finals. SK wins. Japan wins consolation game vs USA.

USA baseball will be hyped and ready in 2012. So will I.

WBC Loot!

Man I’m not even tired. Just got back from Beneswayla vs Ooh Ess Eh! Watching Mehico vs Aussies. Man I wish Canada was in That pool…. well we couldn’t beat Italy so ..

Anyways I had mad fun in my 6 games in 5 days March marathon. I’m not even tired like I supposed I would be .. I’m jealous .. of San Diego.

3 more weeks until live baseball? Noooo … too long, I should go to Dunedin this weekend. haha.

MLBogs is gonna be my new obsession and I haven’t really done anything yet. I even got commenter and .. my chesire cat grin is the featured blog?? and I’m not even a cute blonde Cubbies fan. Aww shux.

I’ll link all you guys in a sec and then tomorrow I’ll take my stride around the MLBlog diamond.

For now I leave u with my loot.

Yes I scored a Venezuelan flag. I HAD too. BTW I was in the 2nd row directly behind 1st base/all the photographers.

Now I gotta edit and choose pics. Fun times … but I wish i was still at section 115 row 2 seat 109. I miss my 5 day home already.

Still Shocked

The Canada shock is gone. Besides, I live in Toronto, I’m used to it. I’m also used to smiling and then quickly adapting to other cultures and getting swooped up in it.

Truthfully the 2 most enthusiastic fan bases are in the Pool C Finale. Not only have I admired the Venezuelan charm, but I still love my Americano bretheren. I’ve actually met some … gasp … rational, reasonable and fun BoSox fans. … What’s next me cheering for Cena against Edge?

I’ll post the pics later, I’m excited still for this final game of the round. Maybe it’s cuz after it I can sleep, buy groceries, clean up my home .. and maybe you know … relax. yeah right.

I came home last night from the game and immediately turned on to watch Shock n Awe WBC 09 part 3 or 9 I dunno. Upset City .. 83 mill payroll vs 400 gs . ahaha.

Damn.

I’m almost as excited for this Blog “therapy” as I am for MLB season to start.

Ok methinks the proxy server is gonna figure out this isn’t my lunch time. ahaha.

Time to go bounce . 4 hrs to go.

I’ll play around with this place soon time.

Warm Up Toss

This is definitely a long time coming. Although the reason for starting an MLBlog right now is due to the frenzy of the WBC (or my craving for baseball in March), it was inevitable.

I think about Baseball 24/7. Ken Burns ain’t got nuttin on me. I’m also Canadian where that is VERY frustrating around here, when it’s summer and the lead story is a possibility of a coaching change to the Toronto Marlies NEXT season or The Leafs have a charity golf game.

Bah. I’m also West-Indian, so the family is more into Cricket and tolerates it because of the similarities. Except for my dad. My Baseball journey begins and will continue for life because of my dad.

For Christmas I created a DVD montage video of our lifelong baseball road trips (up to our home away from home city’s farewell to Shea and Bambino’s Casa) for him. It was also a “lil” bit for me. Ok a whole lot. I still watch it.

From Exhibition Stadium to the Astrodome to Miller Park, you keep building MLB Stadiums and I’ll keep going.

I hope someday I will get to watch a game in Japan, Cuba, Puerto Rico and thanks to my newfound South American compadres – BENESWAYLAAHH. VENNNEZUUELLLAH AAAROUFF .. I have no idea what they are saying but section 115 1st base side down at the Rogers Centre is all Venezuela town right now and I love it.

That was my intro post. I have way more to say, you will soon find this out.

I’ll end with the reasoning of the blog name.
