On The Bright Side…

I am a Red’s fan. Ryan is a Giants fan. We obviously want those two teams to win the World Series. If not the Reds then I hope the Giants win. If not the Giants he better hope the Reds win. If neither of these teams win, well someone else will. And of course on one level that will suck. But more than a Reds fan, I’m a baseball fan and here are some positives that would come from each of the other teams winning it all.

I’m putting these in the order I’d like them to win (following of course the Reds and Giants.)

1. Minnesota Twins (more…)

February 2010 Link Round-up; Highlights and Lowlights

On March 1st I take my ASVAB as I begin the road to Army OCS. But before I can do that I have to post the February 2010 link dump and the military had some news that will be making this list. For starters…

An unmanned Blackhawk Helicopter is in the works
. The only drawback is this assures there will be no sequel to Black Hawk Down. <Yahoo!>

I finally saw The Hurt Lockerand I thought it was great (though I’d love to hear from actual EOD personnel). Surprisingly those brilliant people who give it out major movie awards have acknowledged it’s greatness. Will the academy? <Yahoo!>

Crime does pay, and it pays very well (in Canada). <CBC>

Ever wonder what a baseball player’s fan mail looks like? Scroll down to February 25th on Pat Neshek’s blog. (more…)

Robin Yount Corked?

A link to this auction was posted on Pat Neshek’s forum. The item is supposed to be a game-used, corked bat used by Brewers legend and Hall of Famer Robin Yount. I for one won’t pass any sort of judgement based on this one piece of evidence suggesting Yount was a “cheater”. For one, even though they have very good reason to believe the bat was used by Yount extensively, it’s still not like they took the bat right out of his hands and caught him red-handed. I don’t know much about the process of corking a bat, but theoretically couldn’t it have been done after he retired the bat? I’m not saying I think that’s the case either. I’m just saying their are too many possibilities to brand Yount a cheater. (more…)

Win and You’re (tw)In

This blog is called Monozygotic. On that note, I feel like I must talk the Minnesota Twins. On Tuesday they face the Detroit Tigers in a tiebreaker game for the AL Central spot in the playoffs. Over the last 20 games the Twins have won 16 including 4 wins against the Tigers leaving both teams with records of 86-76.

I personally am rooting for the Twins to pull off this come-from-behind run. Sure the fact that they caught the Tigers and forced this playoff is remarkable in itself. But it will be quickly forgotten if they don’t win Tuesday’s game. Their late season run is not the only reason why I’m hoping they win. The fact that they’re called the “Twins” has absolutely nothing to do with I want them to win.

The reason I want them to win comes down to one player. One Twin who didn’t even throw a pitch this season. (more…)

Final Vote Curse?

While reminiscing in his blog Twin’s Relief Pitcher, Pat Neshek, made a startling observation. He suggests (in jest?) that there may be Final Vote curse. Let’s look at his evidence

The Places I Have Come To Love The Most

Since graduating and moving home I have not had much of anything going on. The Internet has given me something to keep my mind off the mind numbing boring routine that has become my life, and in addition to that, I got a gym membership and I go job hunting from time to time. But let’s face it. These days if you walk into a place and inquire about a job they tell you “You need to apply online.” No one wants human to human interaction anymore if it can possibly be avoided. So basically I’m on the Internet when I’m job hunting as well as when I’m sitting around doing nothing. All that to say, I’m always on the Internet and I’m going to share with you the sites that I frequent most often.
