Arwen Evenstar + Ian Kinsler
25 Rangers caught off their guard, to be exact. LOTR fans will know that line is spoken by Arwen to Aragorn in the Fellowship of the Ring and the scene reminds me of what has happened these past two days. It’s all been very odd and very sad for me watching because it doesn’t look like the World Series should; two good and equally matched ballclubs playing tough games. Even the people without Texas sympathies in my house are not enjoying this to the fullest. Here’s to some fierce Ranger play in the coming days. ::clinks glass of orange juice::
I wanted to share a photo of my Halloween pumpkin last year with y’all.
Z, that is, for Zito. I am not obsessed or a stalker, it just seemed like the perfect letter for a pumpkin and it happened to fit with Barry’s name. ::cue the lady doth protest too much::
I did want to convince the Giants organization to let me in just for batting practice so I could carry a sign that said, “I Love U, J.D.”. (JD being Jon Daniels) but I didn’t get around to it in the post East Coast haze. It’s not like I had a huge amount of success the last time I did this- Ryan Braun didn’t seem to notice that I loved him- but there’s always a first time. JD might be more of a gentleman, who knows. If the series comes back to San Fran, I will try lobbying with the front office. I seriously promise to leave as soon as the cage comes down.
Lastly, here is the clear version of me and the World Series trophy.
The only other baseball themed thing about my NY trip (other than, you know, talking to everyone about it) was seeing Citi Field from my cab on the way to JFK. It’s a pretty field, from the outside, going at 70 on the freeway. Next time, I am going in the spring…
Enjoy the final days of baseball season and hugs and happy Halloween to all.
