After my  yearly trip to Gatlinburg and spoty internet upon my return  we jump in our time machine one of my dream cars( although for me it was because of certain show that was my favorite of  my early childhood 10 years later)

to 8/10/1969 and

the cardinals road game in San fran  (amazing that Bob Gibson and Juan Marischal started but did not complete the game on that  Sunday afernoon)!1m28!1m12!1m3!1d26807828.443215717!2d-121.06208916668513!3d34.895406158447955!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!4m13!3e6!4m5!1s0x885953eacb08a589%3A0x4ab1d7ae7eb779a8!2sGatlinburg%2C+TN+37738!3m2!1d35.714259!2d-83.5101638!4m5!1s0x808f7f30de5d1b35%3A0x29a13d0732b24b8f!2s602+Jamestown+Avenue%2C+San+Francisco%2C+California!3m2!1d37.7135483!2d-122.3857003!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sus!4v1502399049259“>

Rain delay possible  in tonights royals cards game if there is i will try to find some Harry Carry and Jack buck  kmox auido from back in the day plus what might have been on KSDtv(televised Cards games back then)  as if that day’s game had a rain delay

While we were  away 3  former mlb players passed away My  prayers go out to the  fans, teammates, friends,  and families of Darren , Don , and Lee  They were all very determined on the field and very genial off of it,

Fantasy friday 7/28/2017 Yanks may roll to AL east title

With the young core of offense an  even deepper pen and the corner infield sloved with trades  the Yanks looked  like they were going be  the team who might a narrowly win the  AL east , but if the rotation pitches like Tanaka did tonight  the Redsox and Rays will being eating the Yankees dust!1m28!1m12!1m3!1d3025705.4235885195!2d-79.12113599463454!3d42.218923041050054!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!4m13!3e6!4m5!1s0x89d4cb90d7c63ba5%3A0x323555502ab4c477!2sToronto%2C+ON%2C+Canada!3m2!1d43.653226!2d-79.3831843!4m5!1s0x89c2f42c5ae76971%3A0x4940c3d9559a1e08!2sYankee+Stadium%2C+1+E+161st+St%2C+Bronx%2C+NY+10451!3m2!1d40.8296426!2d-73.9261745!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sus!4v1501309203512“>

throwback thursday Happy birthday lil sis 7/27/1985

4;00 am on that Saturday you decided to  singal tthat you would enter this world  causing me to  miss  Mr and Mrs Kings ( teachers from Southwestern ) and making dad  hurl clothes at me while mom called grandma to meet us at the hospital. My 9 year old self was scared we would get put in jail for speeding as dad drove to the hospital Mom said the police would help us get there quick if they stop us because she was having a baby. I went to grandma’s  and  grandpa’s house watching cartoons waiting for you

Dad came by later with a roll of it’s a girl mints and told me  They  named you Jennifer , the name  I suggested, that was awesome. I was a big bro i was going to teach you to like the Reds ( you became an Angels fan) and play  games with you( Ok sorry i tried to make you play candyland at age 1)  , and watch cartoons ( an actvity i love doing with them two little people that now call you Mom.  I see alot of the happy high energy  headstrong younger you in them)

Here is some other totally rad stuff that was going on in this world on your birthday

In case you were wondering what your Angels did on that day  That got smoked in Toronto at a stadium no longer there ( do you feel old now)

They lost today  too in Cleveland

hope  Number 32 was a good one love you kiddo


Family time ,extra baseball channels,going to ballgame with old buds square dancing parents, and Abe Lincoln slowed blog

I have been a little slow on the blogging with my  going to see my niece’s Mini 4-H at her local fair, Family reunions, The Mlb extra innings preview (yes i know ironic) keeping up late last week, getting together with my  Southwestern School friends Andy and John for A  Reds game last Monday with some great memories and about 6 hours of nonstop laughter

, and tagging along with my folks to the Illinois state Square Dance Convention in Springfield  where we also visited the Abe Lincoln Museum I learned that Abe  had a lazy eye due to a horse kicking him as a kid and he was not popular during his presidency they also had a baseball  exhibit featuring  the Cubs, Cards, and  Whitesox.
