This Spring Sucked and Spring Training Sucked too!
- I mean how screwed up has this been? Hardly any Spring Training! The Dodgers and D-Backs have really gotten ripped. maybe it will end up being a good thing, but I don’t know.
- Quas, e-mail me!
- Mercer beats Duke? Who saw that coming? Coach K… are you slipping?
- I was in Orlando all week, where it was in the 70’s all week. It’s 70 here today in Indy and will be 30 tomorrow with a chance of snow. What…..????
- Vegas last week. Orlando this week. Myrtle Beach next week. I need to slow down, but it’s too much fun!
- Andrew Bynum would help the Pacers win the NBA Championship, but he can’t physically do it anymore. What a shame. You see flashes and then he can’t walk the next
- Don’t blame Jim Buss, it was Jeanie that let Phil go! I think the Lakers are toast!
- Turner and Gordon at 2B as a platoon? Looks a lot like it.
- Matt Kemp will be back by April 15th.
- I have to get up at 4AM to watch the Dodgers? Goodnight everybody!
