This is just a compilation of a few things…
Hilarious, Painful Mistake
Check out this video. hahahaha….
Then I heard SlamBall is coming back. A few years ago I was at a college retreat and became engrossed in this. I’m happy to hear it is back for all to enjoy:
As most of you know, the Sox are back in Spring Training. Yesterday, they went to the White House to visit the President as the World Series Champions. Bush managed to make a joke about Manny not being there because his grandmother must have died again. The first time they went to the White House after winning in 2004, Manny missed it supposedly because his grandmother was sick. No one believed him then, and Bush managed to make light of it again.
Then I saw this picture, which is priceless:
It totally looks photoshopped, but he rode in the side car from the White House to Walter Reed to visit some troops. Francona apparently rode in it from the Airport to the White House, and challenged Papi to do it, himself. Then Kyle Snyder rode in it from Walter Reed to the airport, which apparently was longer than the other two. He said it was so cold, but he wouldn’t get out and go to the bus because he wouldn’t stop hearing it from his friends. I like this team, and that picture is hilarious.
Speaking of Boston sports, on Monday I went to the Celtics game against the Clippers at the Staples Center here in LA. It was funny how many Boston fans there were. Everyone around us were Boston fans, and the guys next to us were talking in Boston accents and spent the 4th quarter talking about Spring Training, the Sox, and the Yankees. The place was full of green jerseys, shirts, and Red Sox hats. It was just great. The Celts blew ’em out by 28, and the 4th quarter was all the young guys playing against each other. When we walked out into the concourse after the game, it was like we were in the Garden. I would say by the end of the game that the Celtics fans outnumbered others by 4-1. EVERYONE was a Celtics fan.
Micah has been sick this week, but is now apparently getting better. He was looking pretty bad at some points, with a high fever, but now he is getting better. He lost a couple pounds, but now appears to be on the rebound. Leah’s looking forward to getting out of the house, as she’s been trapped there quite a bit, lately.
Lately, I’ve been hearing people use the word ‘literally’ a lot, and hardly any of it is really literal. For example, I’m watching a sporting event and someone says, “He’s literally giving 110% out there.” That phrase ‘110%’ already is annoying because its impossible, but then you throw literal in there and its literally impossible! Or someone may say, “It literally killed him.” Well, no. It didn’t. It may have brought him great pain, but it didn’t literally kill him. I’m now going to be the ‘literal’ police, but not literally. There will be no badge or actual penalties.
Here are a couple funny videos that the kids showed me this weekend:
