Two Home Run Derbies…

…we won one and we lost the other.

What about these calves says ‘baseball player?’ Absolutely nothing.”  I found that quite entertaining.  I’m glad these guys did such a neat community service project.  Sounds like fun.

That’s really all I have to say for today.  I’m hitting the game this afternoon, so we’ll hope for a win in the rubber game.  I’ve got to go find a compressed air can to blow the air out of my desktop so I can get back to using it.  This laptop is slower than Carlos Lee running to first.
