The 5 W's

Ichiro Suzuki
10 time all-star, 10 time gold glove winner, lifetime .300 hitter, and surely to be the first Japanese born MLB player to be inducted into Cooperstown.   What else could cap this career?  The ultimate, a World Series ring, but that's just not gonna happen with the Mariners.   Ichiro has been a class act his entire career with the Mariners, playing with some real dogs of teams.    Isn't it about time the Mariners showed some class and traded him to a contender? 

Minor League Baseball
Minor league baseball is alive and well in Eugene.   The Emeralds are a damn good team, having just set the NW league record for consecutive wins at 14.  A follower of the Em's, and you say it's about time.   Agreed.   Special thanks to Verizon for buying up all the tickets at PK Park for the game on the 5th and giving them away for, are you ready, FREE!   I got seats 11 rows up from the Emerald's dugout for the record setting game.   Makes me want to re-think my cell carrier next time my contract is up - are you listening AT&T?

Finish already...

Are they ever going to finish with the Willie Lyles crud?  The only ones not tired of this are the sports writers.   Settle it one way or another!  
Another when - when are we going to have a trouble-free off-season?


10 years of frequent flyer miles, tax returns, a couple of bucks in savings and we are off to Orlando in August to visit 
Harry Potter

and Mickey!  

  Huh, what was the question?  I'll have to get back to you on that....
