You can't swing a dead cat...

Today's lunchtime walk was spoiled by the Papelbon jersey you might be able to make out on the guy on the left. Then, at the gym, someone had a green shirt that said "Papelbon's Pub" or something. I guess I just don't get what's so special about this guy. If he even makes it into a game, he only plays for around one inning. How hard is that? I can guarantee you that if you open my closet, you won't see a stash of Gregg Olson jerseys.

Meanwhile, I learned while doing my monthly check-in that the Orioles swept the Red Sox in their recent trip here, which just ended yesterday. (I meant to actually go to the games, but I found some horse tranquilizer, so I used that instead.) And by "swept" I mean, of course, an "Orioles sweep" — that is, that the Orioles recorded at least one hit in each game against Boston. Things are looking up.


  1. Aww, you take lunchtime walks? That's so cute! Almost as cute as a constipated Jon Papelbon taking a dump right on the field:

  2. I take those walks when I want to get away, but as you can see, it doesn't always work.
