Just wanted to give a quick congrats to Gary Sheffield, who hit his 500th home run last week with the New York Mets. He’s been stuck on 499 since last season and we got to see him hit #500 on the MLB Network. Check out our ball.
You’ve probably noticed that my Rockies are off to a slow start. They haven’t been playing well at all… It’s early and I still have faith, but it can be tough to watch at times. I just watched Franklin Morales give up back-to-back home runs to the nasty Diamondbacks. I really don’t like those guys.
This road trip has been too long. Come back to Coors Field guys!
Friday night, usually means “Guy’s Night”. Typically, Mom has to work those nights, so Dad and I usually just hang out at home. There’s plenty for us to do at home and we always manage to find a way to have a little fun.
Sometimes we hang out and listen to music. Dad’s got a bunch of these round, shiny things that play groovy tunes. I like to look at the pictures and try to eat them.
Word to the wise, they look better than they taste.
After that, sometimes we get inspired to go and make a little music of our own. Dad’s got this noisy thing in his “man cave” that I like to smack.
I don’t know who this crazy guy is, but I like him. I like his wild hair and cool pants.
After jammin’, it’s time for a break. I’ve found the best way to wind down is with a little MLB Network. I pulled my bat out tonight during “Hot Stove”, to work on my bunting technique.
This is about the time that I start to get tired. Really tired. Which means, it’s about time for our bottles. Can you figure out which one is mine?
Mine’s the one in the middle. Dad likes this stuff called beer. He says his favorites are from Belgium, whatever that means. I’ll be honest with you, the stuff is gross. I think his tastebuds might be broken or something. I don’t argue with him though. It just means more milk for me.
So Friday nights are pretty great, even when there aren’t any baseball games to watch. You should give it a try sometime. You won’t regret it.
I’m still rockin’ with the MLB Network. It’s pretty perfect if you ask me. Anyway, Tim Lincecum is going to be on the Hot Stove show tonight. Even though he’s not a Rockie, he’s one of my favorite players.
I always cheer for him unless he’s playing my Rockies! I’m looking forward to hearing what he has to say about winning the Cy Young Award and what he’s been doing during the offseason. Maybe he’ll even throw some pitches in Studio 42! Check him out.
I’m hooked on the MLB Network. I can’t seem to get enough of this awesome channel!
I’m also learning a lot. Since I’m just a year old and have only witnessed one full season of baseball, I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. Last night, Dad and I watched an entire game from the 1956 World Series. We saw Don Larsen throw a perfect game. There were lots of legends on the field, including Jackie Robinson, Duke Snider, Yogi Berra and Mickey Mantle.
Tonight, we’ve been watching the Red Sox run from the 2004 World Series. Well done MLB Network! You’ve got me hooked.
I’m excited that I can get a baseball fix anytime I want. Just yesterday, I was excited about a hockey game at Wrigley Field, for the simple fact that it was being played at a baseball stadium.
While it makes for an interesting game, it’s still not baseball. The MLB Network is doing it up right. All day, every day. It’s the perfect start to 2009. Check it out and tell them Baby Paul sent you!
