Quick notes of the ring ceremony… green is hard color to pull off. And the green of the boxes on the field really clashed with the green of the grass. Call me a nit-picker, but that was a pretty nit-picky ceremony. And did you notice that the farther down the line they got, the goofier they got? They were stoic at the beginning and partying at the end. And yes, it was more than slightly overdone. Really? Silver platters?
Moving on… congratulations to Kristen and Gerald Dempsey the Third! I’ve always wanted to do this and Buster’s is finally giving me the chance. Twin name suggestions. A useful list for our Rookie of the Year.
*Whiteside and Molina (he stole their jobs. The least he could do is name his kids after them, right?)
*Luke and Leia
*S & F (though this might garner some uncomfortable questions about what they stand for)
*Erin and Aaron
*Lee and Sburg (Leesburg, GA, that is.)
*Bruce and Brian (you know what I’m talkin’ about, right?)
*Ray and Rocky (going with the baseball theme)
*Kristen and Kirsten (after their mama)
*May and May (in honor of his call-up month)
*Jon and Dave OR Kruk and Kuip
*And lastly… the best twins ever. Thompson and Thomson.
I’m going to be honest: I fell asleep during yesterday’s game. I vaguely remember Rowand missing a ball and when I woke up it was a few innings later. So I my opinions are a little disjointed. Basically, the thing that bothered me was that the so-called A Squad doesn’t seem a whole lot less threatening than B Squad, who played today. The team- particularly the offense- just seems a little sleepy to me. They’ve obviously had good games but I still think they need friendly whack across the face (happy to, you know, oblige). Andres Torres healing up really fast and that closer of theirs wising up really fast wouldn’t hurt either.
And since Bruce Bochy said that there’s some “crud” going around the clubhouse? I’d like to suggest some Immune Support Tea from Yogi. Not only is that stuff magic but it also tastes like a piece of heaven. That coming from a pure black coffee gal.
p.s. Does someone running the Giants website have a wacky sense of humor? Or an obsession with the pitching staff’s teeth?
