It is hard to believe that the season is over. Where does the time go? It really does speed up the older you get. To all my readers in your twenties: Enjoy it. Don’t rush. Bask in the glory of this time in your life.
I hate the end of regular season baseball. Not only because it means that we will shortly be without baseball, but also because it means winter is coming. That’s another thing about baseball that I love. I love that it is so representative of a passing year and time. The postseason brings fall. The offseason brings winter. Spring Training brings the promise of the summer and a clean slate.
The season has had its ups and downs but overall, it was a great reminder of what I love about the sport. With a little bit of hope, an amazing skipper, and a player with a big bat and a seemingly bigger heart, the boys in blue fought the good fight and made it to the postseason.
I just want to take a moment to thank St. Louis for their unbelievable hospitality during my visit. Thank you, St. Louis Cardinals and thank you to everyone who stood in line and supported the TOUCH appearance (Kent Loan and CJ – you are the best!). I truly had a wonderful time and will remember it with great fondness. I am such a lucky girl.
Here are some pictures from the event:
See you in the postseason! We’re back!
Four games against the Pirates, six against the Giants, and three against the Padres. That’s all that stands in the way of a trip back to the postseason, and everyone knows that all you have to do is be one of the eight these days and anything can happen. Obviously I am happy with a 4 1/2-game lead entering the Pirates series. Let’s take it one game at a time and GO BLUE! In the meantime, thanks for your continued comments and I wanted to pass along this press release for my upcoming appearance in St. Louis for TOUCH. I look forward to meeting more fans.
ALYSSA MILANO SHOWS OFF HIGH-END CARDINALS FASHION FOR WOMEN AT BUSCH STADIUM SEPT. 26
Sportservice, the Food and Retail Provider at Busch Stadium, Welcomes Actress and Fashion Designer Alyssa Milano for an Autograph Signing for her TOUCH Fashion Collection
ST. LOUIS (Sept. 12, 2008) – Cardinals fans purchasing their favorite team’s apparel will receive more for their money on Friday, Sept. 26. Thanks to the St. Louis Cardinals and Delaware North Companies Sportservice, the food service and retail provider at Busch Stadium, actress Alyssa Milano will be greeting Cardinals fans from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. for a promotional autograph signing of her TOUCH clothing line at the Official Cardinals Team Store.
“I created TOUCH for women who love sports as much as I do and want to be comfy, but still stylish, while cheering on their favorite team,” said Alyssa Milano. “Cardinals fans are known for their passion for their team, and I was inspired to create the TOUCH collection for exactly that kind of fan!”
Milano, a celebrated actress best known for her role on the hit television shows “Charmed” and “Who’s the Boss,” created the women’s fashion line TOUCH by Alyssa Milano to give female fans a chic option for sporting their team’s logo. Major League Baseball and G-III Sports partnered with Milano to bring the TOUCH collection to baseball stadiums across the country, including Busch Stadium and select retailers.
“The St. Louis Cardinals and Sportservice have always been ahead of the curve when it comes to providing St. Louis fans with the most innovative, fashion-forward apparel available. We’re proud to have been one of the front-runners in offering fans Alyssa’s wildly popular fashions,” said Loren Pawlitz, Sportservice retail manager at Busch Stadium. “Women appreciate the versatility of the TOUCH line because it’s both stylish and comfortable, and the pieces are hip enough to transition to post-game celebrations.”
Sportservice oversees all retail operations within Busch Stadium and was instrumental in bringing Milano to St. Louis for this event. Retail managers made the decision to carry Milano’s line in 2007, in response to fans’ needs. Milano’s TOUCH line is one of hundreds of retail options making the Official Cardinals Team Store one of the most diverse and authentic selections of Cardinals merchandise available.
“We’re thrilled to host Alyssa and are excited to see the fans’ reactions,” added Pawlitz. “Cardinals fans are some of the most passionate fans in the country, and we have no doubt they’ll convey this enthusiasm when they welcome Alyssa to St. Louis for this special event.”
Firstly, I just want to say thank you to all those who left words of support regarding SINGLE WITH PARENTS being picked up. I am extremely appreciative that ABC has given me the opportunity to be on the network and hope that you guys like the show. I can’t wait to start filming.
Now, on to why we are all here — VERY IMPORTANT SERIES THIS WEEKEND AGAINST THE D-BACKS! Oh God, it gives me heartburn. We’re a game and a half behind Arizona. There are 22 games left to go. You do the math. Dodger Dugout has listed our numbers this season against the D’Backs, so take a look.
And now I pose a question:
Do you think it is a coincidence that the Dodgers have been winning ever since Jeff Kent, the supposed “clubhouse cancer,” hasn’t been in the clubhouse?
P.S. I was being sarcastic in my last post about the K.M.I.L.A.F. Jeeze, tough crowd. But Manny did wave to me from the dugout Wednesday night so if he keeps that up, I may just defer my weekly paychecks from SINGLE WITH PARENTS to help the McCourts out. Yup. Team player here. Again…sarcastic. (My weekly paychecks probably couldn’t even pay for Manny’s dreadlock maintenance.)
