I will come for you at night-time
I will raise you from your sleep
I will kiss you in four places
As I go running along your street
-So I called up my dad who just got back from Scottsdale, Arizona.
Boof: Did you know you were right down the street from a who’s who of the baseball world?
Dad: What do ya mean? I know Puckett was down the street.
Boof: Well the US baseball team is there, many former players and current players flew down there to see Kirby, and a quite a few teams train there for spring training.
Cool? If that were me there. I’d never sleep at all.
- So I was watching the Dominican Republic/Venezuela game (if you missed it, you should probably bleach your eyes and go blind forever because it was just that awesome) and I checked up on the ole blog.

Usually I have about 50 total in one day but this day was absolutely insane! I did some quick checking and found out that the Star tribune actually put my link up on their front page. Not only that but I really got a kick out of being linked alongside the likes of nationally renown “bat-girl” and Twins geek (who came out of retirement to write some words about Puckett). Seth Speaks even said some kind words about my previous post. I nearly threw up because all of those bloggers (as nerdy as it may sound) were my true inspiration for doing this, here, piece of crap blog a couple years ago.
I really got a kick out of it!
-I looked in my basement for that pennant I talked about yesterday and I forgot about all the other autographs I had on it. Other than Puckett I had Paul Molitor, Tom Kelly, and Rick Aguilera. I also had other forgettable guys like Frankie Rodriguez and Ron Coomer but whatever. I should probably frame that.
-The new strongbad email is about as good as I’ve seen.
If you’ve missed the World Baseball Classic, tomorrow I’ll talk all about it.
