So I'm all set to listen to the first Dodgers game of spring...
Edited on Thu Mar-02-06 12:45 PM by Oeditpus Rex
and the audio stream is that of the Pittsburgh-Washington game.

Thanks, mlb.com. :grr:



Edit: They fixed it. I missed the first inning and a half.

Bastards.

4. Funny how women often say 'My (insert name of ball club)'
Or, when talking to me, "Your Dodgers."

I can just see me saying "My Dodgers are on radio today," and the other kids kicking my ass.

6. I never thought of that
Differences in socialization I guess.

3. Dodgers! Yes! Dodgers!
As soon as the regular season starts, my Kings logo gets replaced with the Dodgers logo.

9. That's the one! I'm glad I'm not alone here. So, who
do you hate more, the Yanks or Giants? Or is there another contender?

13. The Jankees, by a *long* shot
I gave up hating the Giants years ago, during that several-years gap before MLB Audio, when they were all the baseball I could listen to. (The Dodgers' "flagship" station is a 5,000-watt squeaker, and the nearest one in their network to me is about 200 miles away.)

Every year, I hope for a mid-air crash between the Jankees' and Braves' planes. :evilgrin:

14. I tend to hope for a crash between
the Yankees' and Giants' planes. The Braves would share the spotlight instead of the Giants, but my disgust with Barry Bonds grows with every passing year. Actually, not year - week.

43. 'Photographs, ay?'
Yes, I have his card, and a lot of candid, you know, CANDID photography, say no more!

Editor's note: It might has nothing to do with baseball, but it keeps yer thread on top. Nugde nudge.

What kind of sport is it then? Not anything Olympic I see. Otherwise it would have 'Goaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal!' in it.

It's another one of those language things.

Sure there is a goal_to_win. However there is no_goalpost in baseball.

The little guy in my picture is 'Michel from Lnneberga,' a character from Astrid Lindgren who wrote also 'Pippi Longstockings.' I just love him, and he looks quite like what I looked once as a kid.

31. Now if they were allowed to carry the bat with them around the bases...
and if the ball is there and they can get the guy off base...

they are safe...

now that would make it interesting.
