Delmon Young

Funny how a lot of stories lately have focused on the big,bad Elijah Dukes. Many have lauded Dukes skills on the field, but many incidents have led to his ability to produce in the major leauges to be questioned due to many behavioral incidents.

Last year, many questioned the decision of the Devil Rays to allow super-prospect Delmon Young to room with Dukes for the Double A season. Supposedly Dukes was influencing Young in a bad way. However, recent Baseball America articles have attempted to shine a more positive light on Dukes, saying that he doesn't go out, doesn't drink, doesn't smoke, etc. However, Young has had yet another run-in with a minor league umpire. Could someone please start to question his character instead of blaming his actions on Elijah Dukes?

So yeah, checking my myspace account today (yeah, I'm a goon, I have one). Got yet another drunked post from someone on my friends list. Not to fault the drunkenness, as I do believe that nearly everyone has left a drunken message or two. What bothers me is that this individual knows me, tells me they know my girlfriend (which they do). Then they proceed to tell me that one of my friends recently stole their heart and that I should say something to them. No thanks, the person who left me this post is currently married. Guess I'll just sit back and laugh at this one.

More Chuck Norris

I haven't blessed anyone with posting some random Chuck Norris facts found from around the web in a while. So, while I'm bored, here goes nothing.

-Chuck Norris' calendar goes straight from March 31st to April 2nd; no one fools Chuck Norris.

-Chuck Norris is currently in a legal battle with the makers of Bubble Tape. Norris claims "6 Feet of Fun" is actually the trademark for his penis.

-Chuck Norris ends every relationship with "Its not me, its you".

-If it looks like chicken, tastes like chicken, and feels like chicken but Chuck Norris says its beef, then it's fucking beef.

-Geico saved 15% by switching to Chuck Norris.

-The phrase "Made by Chuck Norris" is imprinted beneath the surface of China.

-Chuck Norris' dog is trained to pick up his own poop because Chuck Norris will not take shit from anyone.

-Chuck Norris once survived a suicide bombing. He was the bomber.

-Chuck Norris' sperm can penetrate 13 condoms, the birth control pill, a brick wall, and the 1975 Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line in order to impregnate a woman.

-Chuck Norris doesn't have a bank account. He just tells the bank how much he needs.

Sage Francis

Good stuff. I hadn't listened to any of my Sage Francis cd's in quite a while, so I popped one into my car's cd player today and was reminded of what hip-hop should be. It shouldn't be about gangster stuff, it should be about real societal issues. It should be in itself a form of dramatic, performed poetry. Check out Sage's site and some of his stuff.

Winning for a change

Wow, things have changed since I was in high school. Our baseball team was ultra talented, but we couldn't win enough games to even make the playoffs. The South Central League was a perennial state power, and we seemingly always found a way to finish 5th in league, one spot out of a playoff berth. Looks like the Canon boys are finally winning. This years team is currently second in league at 7-4 and look like they're headed for a playoff berth. Congrats kids.

Big Weekend

This weekend will be the final home series of the season for the Colorado State University-Pueblo men's baseball team. We'll be facing the Regis University Rangers in a four game conference series. Two games will be played on Friday at Rawlings Field on the CSUP campus. Saturday's game will be this year's Pack the Park night and will be played at 7pm at Runyon Field right off of I-25. Before that game, there'll be a free clinic for kids. Many great prizes will also be given away before the game. Be sure and check it out if you have time. We set the national division II attendance mark with over 3600 fans at the game last year and will be trying to break that record this year.

5 More Weeks

That's right, five more weeks and I can pick up a baseball again. I had a checkup with my surgeon on Tuesday up in Denver. He said I need to come see him again for a final check in 4-5 weeks and then he'll clear me to start my 12-step throwing program. Woohoo! Five more months or so and I'll be back on the mound throwing bullpens. Hopefully the rehab keeps going well and the shoulder keeps getting stronger.

My Boys are Playing

Two teammates of mine from last year are continuing their professional baseball careers at the moment. One of my good friends and former Colorado State University Pueblo centerfielder Mike Massaro is off to a great start with the Oakland Athletics Class A affiliate Kane County Cougars.

My former catcher Danny Cummins got his first at-bat of the season the other night and launched a three run homerun. He's currently with the New York Mets High Class A affiliate St. Lucie Mets.

Congrats to both.

Moving Sucks

One more week.

My lease is ending in a week. Definitely not a big fan of moving. Guess I'm going to throw my stuff into a storage shed and live with my girlfriend for finals week. Gonna then live with my parents for a couple months this summer until I sign a new lease.

All of this moving will probably be done by my parents, as I'm still not cleared by a doctor to lift heavier than 20 pounds with my right arm. Fun stuff for them.

So everyone, have pity on me, I've got tons of shit laying all around our house and it might take a miracle for me to get it all packed.

Big Game Tonight

Anyone in the Pueblo area who has some free time tonight should head on over to the CSU-Pueblo campus. 6PM tonight at Rawlings Field your Colorado State University-Pueblo Thuderwolves Baseball Team will be taking on arch-rival Mesa State.

Currently, the Pack are one game behind Mesa in the conference standings. Ace Jeff Williams will be taking the mound for the Pack, while Mesa will counter with Luke Cheever, who no-hit Colorado School of Mines last weekend.

Good job Phil!

My boy Phil Mickelson won again! After last weekend's big-time performance, Phil seemed on a roll heading into the Master's. While Tiger missed some putts on Sunday, Phil played a very steady round of golf to claim his second master's title in the last three years.

Good job Phil Mickelson!

Probably the sickest, worst stuff you've ever read

Our whole lives, society has frowned upon dirty jokes, sexual innuendo, etc. Well, I haven't. I can remember storing up the dirty jokes from the back of school buses my entire school career.

I still can rattle them off at will, but unfortunately, most of them have faded from memory. However, the dirtiest joke I've ever told in my life started circulating around my mind at the tender age of three. Here it goes:

Wanna hear a really dirty joke?

5 White horses fell in the mud

My Roommate is Bad Mutha

Congrats to my roommate Jeff Williams. He was once again named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week.

Hopefully he'll keep throwing like this and find himself in some pro ball this summer. He's a badass, if you're in Pueblo come watch him toss a ball. He throws heat.

Looking Like a Lobster

So maybe I should purchase some sunscreen. Yesterday I decided that I should attend my little sister's first high school golf tournament. Being that it was nice and sunny outside, I decided to wear some shorts and flip flops with a polo shirt.

Worked out pretty well until later last night. After about 6 hours of continual sun exposure, my formerly pearly white legs are now looking like a New England Lobster. It stings.....badly.

But hey, maybe my tan will start to improve. That would be pretty sweet. Might kinda give me a headstart before I hit the tanning beds before heading to Mexico this summer.
