Jon -

Where's the tiger? Underneath and in front of a panda bear with a painful and unhappy look on it's face, if you catch my drift... :):)LOL
Ah, my ribs hurt...

Hey smarty pants En-to-man...The true dining starts this even...:)

High today mid-40's...Let's hope the Latins don't freeze to death...;) Just might touch the high 30's by games end.

Yeah, there's a lot of baseball left to play...

Uh, like maybe two games?

I have to admit, this one is tough for me.
I love Prince (the first baseman, not the pop star). Who in modern baseball has protected the MVP in two consecutive seasons on different teams (and opposite leagues)?
But, I love Hunter, too. Have done so since his Houston days. The rumor around here was that he waved his "no trade" to go only to Pittsburgh or SanFrancisco - Philly wanted too much, so we got a BlueJay instead. Also, The Freak and the former Bucco - Vogey. And there is something to say about watching a chubby Panda jog around the bases with his shirt untucked...
I guess it means that I'm rooting for the guys that dumped our two Central Division rivals.
Go Giants
Sorry Spence
All men who fish may in turn be divided into two parts: those who fish for trout and those who don't. Trout fishermen are a race apart: they are a dedicated crew- indolent, improvident, and quietly mad.

You and me both brother...After tonights game...I'm leaving town...Heading to the UP...It's where us Michiganders go to flee "the Silence of the Bats"...

BTW...Love the new photo there...He looks intense...Does he want to pinch hit for the Tigers tomorrow night? ...Notice the lack of smiley face here? I'm not kidding.

Can't say that the pitching has gone south...No support for the pitching effort.

Kurt...I must tip my cap to the Giants...They seem relaxed, having fun, and playing some good baseball.

All I can hear is a sort of, well...aaaagghghhhhg (choking sound)...

Good thing I shot a couple of firearms today. Took the tension out of missing warm weather, trout season, AND watching the home team lose. If I could just get my danged kayak out for a day of fly fishing, without wind or rain, I might just make it through to ice fishing with my sanity left...after all, NO HOCKEY...

Oh yeah, what were we talking about, Colorado? Never fished there...drove through it a couple of times on my way to Oregon though!

BTW Kurt, a panda bear? I miss the symbolism, and thanks for the mental imagery, now I don't remember what I was like before I read your post, I've lost my innocence...

Pablo Sandoval (the guy who hit 3 home-runs the other night) was given the nick-name "Kung-fu Panda" by Giant pitcher Barry Zito after a particularly graceful slide at home plate. For such a big man, he often makes amazingly agile moves when making plays. It got picked up by the press and stuck with the fans, who usually refer to him simply as "the Panda." Now you know more about the Giants than those annoying FOX announcers...:)

Oh yeah, what were we talking about, Colorado?

Don't think so. There may have been a couple of posts from more than 6 years ago that did, sort of...:)

Well... I can now happily put my broom away and get back to fishing... You're no longer an enemy, Spence. Back to being a good friend - not that winning or losing would have made a difference!:) Since this thread has long since left the purpose of Troutnut, what the heck is professional hockey up to besides self-destruction (Spence & Tony)?

Kurt, many of the hockey players went to Europe to play in the Continental Hockey League (KHL), primarily to keep in shape and keep their sklills up while they can't play here in the States. And, I'm sure boredom killing is part of the reason too...me, I'm thinking about ice fishing...

Kurt-
It is a matter of greed and greedier. You can put management or rank & file as either one.

Me? Sure I miss it, but I'm enjoying watching my sons play and taking large quantities of indomethacin to treat my knees each time I skate with them.

Bruce/Goose/Lastchance/Feathers5 and I may take my boys and head to Johnstown to see the new NAHL team - The Tomahawks. It won't be like watching a Johnstown Jets (or Charlestown Chiefs) game at the War Memorial, but it will still be fun...

I'm back in a Junior A rink myself Tony...Good to see boys skating before dollars & cents get in the way anyway...Just testosterone and pride. :)
