    Blame me for the scheduling. Things didn’t work out the last couple of days. But Wednesday it is.

    I think I’ll track the wild card race from the beginning of the season this time. Besides being more realistic, it might be interesting to pay attention to some teams from the central and the west. Get to know their players a bit.

    The last time I listened to Jimmy Buffett on purpose I was about 20 years old. I stuck him in the player on a whim a few minutes ago and, hell, these are good tunes.

    Bub, speaking of west-coast, my mom is ALL OVER a story about an A’s farm-league player – pitcher, I think – might be wrong – who has given up dreams of big league play in lieu of becoming a catholic priest. In THIS day and age. WTF, is all I have to say. Whole feature story on him in the Oakland Tribune this past weekend. Criz-azy.

    Grant Desme. That’s him. NOT a pitcher…I’m hazy on stats most days…

    Princess Leah Says:

    JJ…I do. I just don’t like to brag about it. Welcome back Mr. Dylan. Jimmy Buffet? Really?

    Make ABT proud.

    “In THIS day and age. WTF, is all I have to say.”

    As in “Welcome The Father?”

    I heard about that. I think he was their top prospect, too. Choice between being an entertainer or a different sort of helper to his fellow man, I guess. Then there’s the dollars… admirable choice in my opinion.

    Yes, really Jimmy Buffett.

    “Now he lives in the Islands, fishes the pilins
    and drinks his green label each day.
    Writing his memoirs, losing his hearing,
    but he don’t care what most people say.

    After eighty-six years of perpetual motion,
    if he likes you, he’ll smile and he’ll say,
    ‘Jimmy, some of it’s magic. Some of it’s tragic.
    But I’ve had a good life all the way.'”

    Anne Says:

    Admirable, sure, I just find it stunning that he made the choice that most wouldn’t.

  13. 213
    Bubdylan Says:

    Oh, I’d make that choice in a second. If not for the … you know… hardship and stuff. 8)

    Curt Says:

    Think Pat Tillman with a frock. Or flock…..

    Princess Leah Says:

    That’s gonna be one hellava church softball team.

    Curt Says:

    I used to play against former Braves’ 1st baseman Mike Bell. He might not have stuck around the majors much, but could sure hit a softball a long way.

  17. 217
    Princess Leah Says:

    NEW SHOW!!!!!!

    Curt Says:

    Bubdylan Says:

    Curt, that’s cool you played against Bell.

    Speaking of which, it’s occurred to me that the ABT crew has met a few ballplayers and dignitaries. I’d be interested in seeing a list. At least a top 5 or 10 or some such, of famous or quasi-famous (like Bell) folks you’ve run into. By top 5 or 10, I mean which experiences you liked best, not necessarily the most impressive names or whatever.

    Any takers?

    I saw Burt Reynolds at a Florida State game. From, like, half a mile a way. His mustache was quite clear, though.

    Anne Says:

    No one ever believes this one, but I met O J Simpson at Alioto’s Restaurant in SF when I was 10 (this was 1980). He was having lunch with two other guys, smiling and signing autographs, totally normal. How the mighty have fallen.

    My mother insisted it was Reggie Jackson. Silly mom…she doesn’t know if baseball is the one with halves and quarters or innings. Sigh.

    Bubdylan Says:

    I don’t believe you.

    “If mom don’t see IT,
    you must omit.”

    *punches self in the face*

    I saw Ted Turner at his MT Grill. He thought my, at the time, infant son was cute. Keith Lockhart and I chatted it up at Urgent Care in 1999. We were both sick and had sick kids with us. It was a blast. Finally, I ran into David Hasselhoff in LAX in 1996 or so. He didn’t play ball but dude is enormous. That was before all the surgery that left him looking like a chick.

    MattChu – I don’t plan to make any ST games this year (can’t speak for the other guys). It just never seems to fit into the family vacation budget. I bet it’s really fun down there, though.

    JJ – In terms of producing, my buddy Mike is the smart IT guy behind the scenes who developed and maintains the web site and helped me design the technology we use to record and post the show. And, week to week, I do the post production on the show and get it out to the website and iTunes. Curt, for the record, is our Twitter-er. Hammy just shows up and collects a big fat paycheck.

    Bub – I don’t really meet a lot of famous people outside of the time I spent with credentials at the ballpark this past season. Although, I will say that my 90 seconds I had with Dale Murphy (when he was giving his fireside chat at the Mormon Church in Roswell, GA), cementing our interview with him, was really cool. He was amazingly genuine and warm. And Glavine was very down to earth when I met up with him. Seemed like a regular guy. At the stadium, Jerome Jurenovich and Chip Caray were both incredibly accommodating and good natured about me just walking up to them and asking if they’d be on the show. They both, without hesitation, said sure and proceeded to give me their cell numbers. I was kinda of blown away by that.

    The show will be up late tonight, folks. We’re not getting down to business until after 10pm. It will likely be up after midnight.
