So it’s been longer than I wanted it to be but I got a little bit busy this week. I will probably shoot for one entry a week. Hopefully I can handle that.
Not much has really happened with the Cardinals but can I just want to say that I really want John Smoltz back. I really like him and the cardinals need more pitching. He is on my wish list for the Cards.
We beat Maryland! I was not sure it was going to happen especially with Stitt out but they did it! I am so proud of them. Now they just need to beat Virginia Tech this weekend. They have given us problems in the past but we should be able to beat them if they actually show up and play.
Just waiting for Spring Training.
Just waiting for the Opening Ceremony.
And now for a song! Let’s see if I can still do these…
Fuzzy Blue Lights- Owl City
This song kind of feels like the offseason to me. It is kind of melancholy and has the same mood that I do when I have no baseball to get me through the day.
If I could look across the country
From California to New Jersey
Then I would count the parks and lake resorts
And number all the jets and airports.
Al those rather dreary rain clouds still bother me
Because I look through the camera eyepiece and cannot see.
The rain clouds part is my life right now. Clemson has two- three seasons from what I can tell. HOT, Pleasant, and then rain until you drown. We are currently in rain until you drown and since my rain boots have holes in them I am not well prepared. And rain makes me feel dreary and I have no baseball to cheer me up.
If I could open up my window
And see from tampa Bay to Juno
Then I would survey all those open miles
And line them up in single file
Everywhere I look I see green scenic sublime
And all those oceanic vistas
Are so divine.
If I were standing on the balcony
And you were walking down below
I’d feel rather depressed and out of place
And lonely just to watch you go
If you were swinging from the highway overpass
Within the western hemisphere
I’d feel rather afraid and insincere
If you began to disappear
This is how I feel when baseball leaves for the winter. Depressed and out of place and lonely. Come back baseball!
If I was walking through a sad art gallery
And you were driving through the night
I’d feel rather alone and ill at ease
Beneath the brilliant showroom light.
If I was flying on a plane above your town
And you were gazing at the sky
Somehow I’d feel intact and reassured
If you began to wave good-bye.
But the song ends with hope and feeling reassured because Spring Training is coming! It is almost here everyone!
