Peace and Love and Antlers to All + My Resolutions for 2011

Peace and love and antlers to all!

I am purging 2010 (though seriously, what is there to purge?  The Giants and the Rangers played each other in the World Series) by redoing my nail polish.  Even so, I love New Year’s Eve and am pumped for 2011.  It’s going to be very good.  Armando Galarraga will do fantastically along with Eugenio Velez (he’ll do well, but the Dodgers won’t, of course) and Joe Martinez, who will be signed by the Rangers before the offseason ends.  ::Diamond Girl gives Jon Daniels a very pointed look::  The Niners may also hire me as their GM (okay, yes, that’s unlikely).  Bud Selig will decide to do important things like make the wild card wild and rename the Winter Meetings (this year from December 6th-9th) because everyone knows winter begins on December 21st.  The world will get over their Glee complex and watch baseball instead.  And the world will accept the antlers as the truth of all creation and wear them all year round.

I’m not really into New Year resolutions, but I’m going to try it this year. 

1.  I resolve to visit my grandparents in Los Angeles without fighting over whether Wilson or Broxton is a better closer. 

2.  I resolve to dissolve my life savings and go to Citi Field or Yankee Stadium. 

3.  I resolve to carry a sign to an A’s vs. Rangers game and get the object of my sign to autograph it. 

4.  I resolve to crash the 2011 GM Meetings. 

5.  I resolve to repeat my feat of walking over every inch of AT&T Park in stilettos. 

Okay.  I now have plenty to do next year.  Soon it’ll be time (It’s Time!) to settle in for a night of delayed Times Square.  Happy New Year everyone.   Hugs and cupcakes and aviator Prada sunglasses to all in the coming year.  2011’s gonna rule.

p.s.  2010 was my first year at this- blogging- and so I want to thank you all again for reading and commenting.  71 entries.  A lot of talk about Ryan Braun.  I dig the world.

    I resolve to visit my grandparents in Los Angles without fighting over whether Wilson or Broxton is a better closer… That shouldn’t be too hard. After Wilson’s performance this year and Broxton’s lack there of, I would think there wouldn’t even be an argument anymore, LOL. Fun list. Happy New Year!

    • You don’t know my grandparents, Kristen. We’ll still argue about it. Just kidding! You’re right, my LA trips should be more peaceful this year. Thanks for reading!

    I think you got some really good resolutions there.
    Worst thing aboutmaking resolution like that is now you got to walk the walk. Nopt always the easiest thing to do when two of the stadium you want to see are about 3,000+ miles to the East.
    But I have been to cavernous Citi Field…..You got to buy stuff at the fruitstand….seriously.
    As for the GM Meetings, bring a good resume with you since a lot of the minor league clubs do some hiring at that event. You could find yourself working for a team in the minors for a year or two, but that promotion to the “Show” would be worth running around in a hot dog suit during the 7th inning stretch.

    • Are you kidding, Renegade? I’d kill to run around in a hot dog suit during the 7th inning strech. It would make for a wicked good photo op :)

      I’ll keep the fruitstand thing in mind, if I make it back to New York this year. Crossing my fingers about that.
