How are you? A couple of games came on last night, nothing major..... ;)
First of all, let me say I am purposely recusing myself from the NLCS for two reasons, I have always loved blue and gold teams, which gives me partial to the brewers, but ozzie smith is one of my favorite players of all time, I think he helped transform the ss position.......and LaRussa is one of my favorite managers of all time from the Oakland A's days.......
So it would be unfair because I am torn.
No disrespect, congrats to the Cards but its far from over.
Much respect to Pujous, you put on the line this year, baby...........
The Daddy in you told St. Louis management my play will dictate my pay.
If that ain't schwagg, then what is.......
But the Brewers ain't going down with out a fight so at 7:05 cst, PLEASE SHOW THE NLCS SOME LOVE. THEY ARE OUR BROTHERS, THESE ARE OUR CITIES AND PLEASE IN NO WAY TAKE MY REFUSAL TO CHOOSE A TEAM REFLECT THAT THIS CS DOES NOT DESERVE AS MUCH ATTENTION AS THE ALSCS.
BASEBALL IS AN AMERICAN THING.
IT ALLOWS OUR DADDIES OF EVERY RACE TO HELP FOLK LIKE COMMUNICATE.......
It allows young men, and young women to learn about team work and values.
It allows all of us to learn.
Support them in ratings.
We will be brief today. I am still not feeling well, so today I am full of wolf chili w/ jalapeno juice.
Hey it works, but it induces coughing and since I am still healing from surgery, painful times. So bear with me for these couple of words
The fact that Cain is beating Romney shows the frustration of voters. Shows the intelligence of voters. Romney it doesn't matter about Christie, it doesn't matter that Obama's reelection campaign team has chosen you as the appointed one. It don't matter about your money, how polished your answers are, how many hustlers......... I mean bundlers ;) you have going for your sir. The people need someone that can relate to them and it is not your fault by ANY MEANS SIR, YOUR MAMA AND DADDY LOVED YOU, amen for that....and blessed you with a childhood that is not common to many.
But right now, just like the game in two hours, the people need a team, they need leaders that have been there, that know the system.
Cain isn't that person, but we'll get to that tomorrow.
See, just like the namesake of these books, in baseball, you have to let a beat build........
Right now, Cain is on a drum solo, just like Verlander is on his....
But the race belongs not to the swift nor the strong, nor those with triple crowns, it belongs to he(she) who endureth the longest.
And endurance in politics and baseball, takes a team.
It takes a band of individuals..........
That's all for politics, today.
Not a I told you so day, but a I tried to tell you Romney and Perry and Palin and Christie and Paul and Huntsman and Santorum that it will come down to a minority race or gender, I prefer gender, I want Obama and Lady gaga to keep that poker face they have going.
One note, please read my blog list bluegrass pundit, if you thought solyndra was bad, he has uncovered a new company in which 15 permanent jobs where produced at a cost of 80 million dollars each. LET ME REPEAT 80 MILLION DOLLARS EACH WITHOUT A WORD............ WITHOUT A PEEP FROM THE MEDIA.
Now let's talk a little baseball.
We all know what happened last night in the ALCS. First of all, pitcher Tommy I AM SO SORRY, I WATCHED YOU SPEAK IN THE PRESS CONFERENCE ON GAME THREE AND I WAS SO DOPED UP ON SUDAFED AND THE LIKE, I think I got in my mind that you had already played.
I APOLOGIZE. I AM SO SORRY, THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO. PLEASE DO NOT THINK I DO NOT VALUE YOUR EFFORT, AND EVERY NAME I DO NOT MENTION BECAUSE I DO.
I REALLY DO.
Let me tell a story and then we are out of here.
When I watch the game, I love to see the dugouts, I love to see the faces of the men, it reminds me of the little boys in them. The boys that grew up on those dugouts, in those cleats, I watch their anticipation, their heartbreak. It makes me want to hug every last one of them, in a purely platonic way baseball wives and girlfriends ;)
Because it reminds me of the kids I am not going to have. Not a matter of can't, I just don't have time. I know what God has planned for me and that is just not in the cards. It makes me think about wanting to protect all of them, keep them from harm. I love my sisters, but its been hard on the men these days, these young and the old. They are being replaced by metrosexual stuff, that I am not going get into today.
I wish that everyone could win, I saw the faces of hope and tears in those Detroit fans... I know they are hurting as bad as I am now because my homemade medicine is making me cough so hard, I am crying....... Maybe that's because God is letting me hide my tears for my Detroit fans. I love this nation, all of it.
But there is a deeper battle to be won, and that involves the Texas Rangers.
In one of those dugouts, not even in this country, there lived a little boy and he played baseball, but he loved a basketball player by the name of Michael Jordan.
For those who think atheletes are stupid, not powerful, please, that's physical physics. For those who think those who excel in sports don't affect others not only in their respective sports, but leaders of all kinds.......I respectfully ask you to let me finish.
That young man young man had a bat in his hand, but a man who clinched basketball games is who he wanted to be like.
That man was Nelson Cruz.
This man has made trips to the hall of fame, twice in one week. But when I look up at espn.com, all I see is Verlander. No offense, no disrespect to him. ERA, wins and ko's. Baby, he's the boston bruin championship ring bling
(Marc Cuban can you please stop being so cheap and have some semblance of pride! geez)
But this man made history, hall of fame history twice in one week.
I wanted nap to play because he was trained by one of the catchers in the game that I think defined the position. Mike Sosa. I know Nap is a hollywood, dude, florida, but hollywood none the less.
I watched the press conference last night, and I noticed that Cruz's english ain't the best and a lot of reporters didn't have questions for him like they should. Hell, Nelson my english ain't always on the up and up either. But give credit and props where it is due, MEDIA, HAD RODRIGUEZ or any other player that was more well spoken, he would be gracing the cover now instead of college football or Verlander, baseball only knows the language of the game, not the one that comes out of our mouths.
He's sweet and kind, and from what his teammates, say about him, he is Jordan because Jordan was dedicated to defense, did you see that gun he threw, Jordan was dedicated to his teammates, he cut his salary for pippen, he sat and watched with pride as nap spoke b/c nap showed some guns to. I wanted nap to play b/c I know the chip he carries.
So Because of what you all stand for Texas Rangers,
I am going to tell you the rest of the conversation I had with mother nature, and then a little song and that's out.
Mother nature finished her dance, it was through raining. We sat down and talked,
I asked "Why did you do that, from all the tsunamis, Bush will never say the word Katrina again, you don't think the world knows your power, come on, you nature?"
She laughed "Yeah, you right about that, but the same reason why the media won't show the rangers love is the same reason mark cuban will never admit who got his a** to sit down, shut up and let his players be the focus: you not you personally but the truths God puts on your heart to speak. If Verlander and Wilson had pitched, would there be a game 5, I don't know. Whose to say, that's on God. But in order for the Rangers, to get the respect they deserve, they gotta go through more, they gotta slay more dragons.
They gotta rob Verlander of his crowns, his bling in his own field in broad daylight. No basketball, no distractions."
I nodded and I thought for awhile and then I said well.........."that means no sweeps, that means a game 5, that means the best road team is going to face the american league's best pitcher on his turf, in his town............."
She looked back at me and asked "What are you going to do?"
I responded "Hell, I ain't on the field, have you seen me run?"
"Nah, they don't need me by any means. They the AL champs, they know what to do but just in case, if what you say is true, on Thursday, at game five, Imma tell the world, all the all the haters who looking for a reason......... no hype songs, detroit is going to play with all of their hearts, none of that. I am just going to keep doing what I always do and say"
We just need one mo
Wrap it up today is the game plan
Ha ha... 3-1 sound good, at least for minute
but AL champs got a ring to it
Aint no cliff lee, it is a little different
But we still at the cliff, you see the difference?
Verlander no choice but to be the ending
B/c mother nature took his beginning
Baby boys, time to finish
You the champs, time to end this
Y'all got Detroit tiggas by the tail yo
make them cats say no mo
Y'all more than worthy, but time to get dirty b/c the haters still aint going to give in,
until you close the book of tiggas and say amen
This his mound, but your game,
Your boy nelly headed to hall of fame
But in the midst of his stats and glory
Y'all got leaders in beltran saying five mo homie
We can't celebrate no time for pride
rest dont reside
until all our hands is on that final prize
Its gonna take that back 9
and all our efforts to avoid tigga mines
and we aint no tim allen, but its tool time
So rangers we gotta nail 'em, toss and scale 'em, just repel 'em
So Mitch, and Josh, And Elvis can go tell 'em
And Nap, big Murph, CJ and Nolan can back'em
And detroit can't fight'em
And the league cant deny 'em
Media gota find'em
Cuz Young saying, brother we gotta prove it
Make the world say whoa nelly
We a team good and plenty, headed for heaven
We end this now, then we can all say you are legend
Then go the cliff and yell tricks
Now that a how team wins b****
We a team deep like trump rich
Now kiss that bat called nelly's switch
Let title Jordan fit
And the beat goes boom, boom, boom,
Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom,
It goes boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
Now say it (yeah)
And mother nature looked incredously and said "That's it"
I said yeah, all they need was a beat b**** ;)
Man, play ball, they coming with heat and heart, Cruz you wanna be like mike
Mike took dreams, destinies, and rings,
Verlander got three crowns,
work with your brothers all you need is one.
that win total is all you need to alter.
Y'ALL THE CHAMPS! PLAY LIKE IT! PITCH LIKE IT! THROW LIKE IT! MANAGE LIKE IT! HIT LIKE IT!
EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU, DON'T NEED ME OR ANYONE ELSE BUT WHAT'S RIGHT THERE IN THAT DUGOUT.
THE CHAMPSIONSHIP SONG DON'T HAVE THE LYRICS YET, BUT THE BEAT GOES........
boom, boom, boom,
Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom,
It goes boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
Now say it (yeah)
Something some dusty cowboys boots in Alvin, Texas can tap to as well as some Gucci Loafers in Dallas, and some Justins in Fort Worth.
Win this game, be the first to write your lyrics on that sweet song called the Fall Classic.
do you, BE YOU.
Follow the beat, take one crown and you there :)
