Got back from AZ the night before last. The rest of the trip was very pleasant, indeed. The Cubbies ended up going 2-2 while we were there. The 3rd game was rather interesting because it ended on a flubbed double play. It was at Ho Ho Kam, so the Cubbies were fielding in the 9th with 1 out. If I remember correctly, there were runners on 1st and 2nd. A ground ball was hit and tossed over to 2nd for an out. The baserunner did not get out of the way of the throw and blocked the throw to first; instant double play because of player interference. It was one of the odder Cubs wins that I’ve seen, spring training or otherwise.
It was definitely a very nice trip, for sure. It was definitely one of the more relaxing vacations I’ve had; took my mind off of everything but baseball.
So, the rest of the weekend has been slacking, so far. It’s been a really nice weekend, that’s for sure; I’ve even turned on the air conditioning. I think it probably won’t last, though, knowing Alabama weather.
SciFi Friday was indescribably awesome; SG-1 ended on a really nice note, and so did Atlantis. Galactica is becoming more and more awesome every single time I watch a new episode. I think that the series absolutely blows away the original disco incarnation of the story 🙂 There’s just so much happening on so many fronts. It’s definitely something that makes every episode uberly interesting.
I’m watching SG-1 right now; it’s the first one that had McKay in it. His character seems almost more pompus and arrogant than how he is now on Atlantis. He called Carter a “dumb blonde” *snicker*
I got a new game called Rise of Nations. So far, the game looks a good bit like Age of Empires. It might even distract me from WoW a little bit. Of course, it’s trading one gaming addiction for another. lol.
Tomorrow is Easter; I can’t believe how quickly this year is going, so far. Next thing ya know, it’ll be the middle of July or something. It’s rather ironic that it seems the older you get, the quicker time seems to past. I think that the work world makes you way too busy 😛 lol. It makes everything fly by in seemingly short amounts of time.
Oh, and I can renew the wings addiction tomorrow. w00t! 🙂
But, tell me have you seen the marvelous breadfish?
