Why hello there, Major League Baseball. It's great to finally see *you* again...


You might not get anything coherent outta me today, you guys. I'll be too busy squealing. Baseball season! Starts TONIGHT! I finally get to watch my Phillies again! *squeal* I'll be watching on TV, but my lucky parents will actually be at the game. Not that I'm ridiculously jealous or anything... ;)

I'll be spending today tweaking my fantasy baseball rosters and counting down the minutes until I get to watch the first regular-season baseball game of 2009, which just happens to involve the current and super-fabulous World Phucking Champions, the Philadelphia Phillies. And I'll be squealing, of course...

Thanks to CRANE for spotting this misspelling of Philadelphia. (I admit, sometimes I, too, misspell Philadelphia when I'm writing about the Phillies, but I do it on purpose. I spell it like this: BILFadelphia. As in the BILFadelphia Phillies. This is because there's an abundance of attractive ballplayers on the team--so many, in fact, that the team needs to be renamed to indicate the high level of BILFiness, or BILFishness, or BILFitude, present on the team. I mean, hel-lo Cole Hamels, Chase Utley, Greg Dobbs, Jayson Werth, and Ryan Madson...)

Philadelphi makes them sound Greek.

LOL. You're awful ;-)

And here I thought all that screeching was from a critter down by the river.

I've loved baseball all my life. The trouble these days is that I scarcely have time to watch it, and don't know anyone besides my son (who's working and going to school full-time) to watch it with :-(

Go Red Sox!

PLAY BALL! Oh yeah!!!

Not jealous in the slightest! Never saw the draw to many of the sports to be honest. I only watched for the tight pants. ~grinz~

I can just hear the "boing" as you jump up and down while watching your BILFadephia Phillies.

GO CUBS!!!!!

@ Bridgete: Yeah, it does, doesn't it?

In that case, I would like one order of baklava and some Philadelphi Phillies to go, please! :)

@ Carlos: LOL! Nope, that was the screeching of a Phillies fan who is VERY excited for baseball to be starting again!

Awww, I wish you had the time to watch more games! I purchased the MLB TV package this season, and I think it'll let you watch "reruns" of games that have just recently happened. So if you have that package, and it's 3 AM and you wanna watch some baseball...well, then, you totally can!

Maybe you and your son should take a little weekend trip together in the summer when he's on break from school--pick a city, go see a baseball game. Could be a fun and not-terribly-expensive mini-vacation! :)

@ MarieC: I second that! :)

@ LadyStyx: I like the tight pants, too. 'Specially when they're on Phillies and Twins players... ;)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ ChicagoLady: It's bigger than a "boing." It's a...SPROING! :)

Go Phillies AND Cubbies!!! :)

1. Play ball!
2. Go Cardinals!
3. White Sox fans will have to wait until tomorrow for opening day, thanks to a late April Fool's Day joke by Mother Nature.

Who would've thought baseball games would be *snowed out* in April? I guess I'm glad I live on the east coast...we're just getting rain here today...
