Hello, fellow baseball fanatics! It’s been far too long since I posted. Please excuse the manic nature of this entry. I have been so very busy with a whole array of activities. I don’t even know where to begin. I’m just going to dive in. Bear with me.
Here is a picture of my new puppy. His name is GIBSON. Yes, Kirk Gibson. My brother named him. I wandered into a pet shop in January and found Gibson. After learning that he had been in the pet shop since AUGUST, I had to get him. He was on sale. Yup, the bargain bin. I think he waited for me to find him. He is such a good puppy. I love him madly.
I’ve also done quite a bit of traveling for TOUCH since my last entry. I went to Atlanta for the NHL All-Star Game, Arizona for the Super Bowl, and New Orleans for the NBA All-Star Game. Tough life,
huh? I had amazing experiences at all the events but I felt like I was cheating on baseball. Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned. I am so proud that the clothing line has taken off the way it has and that female sports fans have been so supportive. Female sports fans, if you are reading this, thank you so much for your support. Here are some pictures from all three of the events.
The NHL All-Star Game:
In Arizona with my two best buddies Alaa and David:
With Swin Cash of the Detroit Shock at the NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans:
I have been doing a lot of interviews for Wisegal (which airs March 15 on Lifetime) and Pathology (which finally will be in theaters April 18). I usually hate doing those kinds of interviews, but I’m really proud of both of these projects so it hasn’t been too bad. I start back to work on My Name Is Earl next week. I am happy the strike is over.
In my free time, I learned how to crochet (insert old lady joke here) and have been glued to the news for the primary coverage. It is so beautiful that people are engaged again in politics. And although I think both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama would do a good job running the country, I voted for Obama on Super Tuesday. His message of hope has renewed my faith in politics. After the last (disenchanting) eight years of “fear politics” and controversy, it’s inspiring to feel hopeful again.
Okay. Okay. Okay. Now on to BASEBALL!!!! I am so freaking excited for the season to start. Woooooohooooo! Joe Torre in a Dodgers uni? Are you kidding me? Is there anything more amazing than that? I think not.
Some questions for all you Dodgers fans out there:
Third base: LaRoche or Nomar? Personally, I think Nomar coming off the bench gives us a lot more options. He can play all infielder positions well and he has enough pop to serve us well off the bench.
And a question for all you baseball fans out there: Thoughts on Clemens and his congressional testimony? In my opinion, it was a total circus that proved that little in congress is bipartisan.
ESPN is reporting that “There is a photo of Roger Clemens at Canseco’s house during the June 1998 party, according to the New York Daily News — a photo that would contradict Clemens’ sworn testimony that he never attended the party.”
Wow. That’s some bad news for Clemens.
