Keeping the Faith
(Written February 29 at 12:45pm, posted late due to technical difficulties)
I'm sitting on the lanai of my friend Patty's condo in Marco Island, Florida, also known as Home Base for the duration of my vacation. The weather is absolutely beautiful — sunny and warm — after a couple sunny and cool days (but still better than what they're having back at home). All in all, I have absolutely no reason to complain.
After arriving late Wednesday afternoon, I saw the two college games yesterday, blowouts both (24-0 vs. Boston College, 15-0 vs. Northeastern). The BC kids definitely had it worse, facing the a-team infield and pitching. Northeastern faced some of the top pitching prospects, starting with Justin Masterson. We'll see how some of these guys look against actual major leaguers.
One more quick note before I leave for lunch and the beach: I have found Kelly's Spring Training Hottie of 2008. He is Chris Carter, wearing #77 and not having played yet. I'll post a picture later so you can see how right I am.

So said Tru
I have no excuses for my long absence. I suffered no dread diseases that had me comatose and hospitalized; I wasn't lying in a ditch on the side of the road, undiscovered for months after a terrible auto accident or ferocious winter storm; aliens did not abduct me and perform torturous experiments upon my body and mind. No, I'm just a big bag of ca-ca. But I'm back. And I'm leaving for spring training in...
(Drum roll, please...)
(Wait for it...)
(Are you ready?)
Three days, folks. That's a Washington's birthday holiday weekend. A 3-day Macy's sale. The very same amount of time it took Jesus Christ to eat the last supper, die on a cross, and rise from the dead. Except that I fortunately, don't have to save humankind in that amount of time. All I have to do is pack, get myself and my luggage to Logan Airport, and board a plane to a magical place where I won't have to see this for a week.
OK, kids I'll see. But they won't be trudging through snow, which means neither will I.
I'm almost ready to go. Going through the checklist in my mind...
I'm still trying to find a way to download the aforementioned butt shots from the aforementioned camera without the accompanying software, but once I resolve that small glitch, I'll be ready to post image after image that will have you feeling almost like you're there with me.
Talk to you then.
