Return to the Ravine

The Dodgers haven’t played a home game in 15 days. I’m hoping to hear Randy Newman on piano and vocals after tonight’s game.

Winning is the cure to all that ails me

When your baseball team wins a game …

  • The food is more delicious.
  • The sun shines brighter.
  • The flowers smell better.
  • The women are prettier.
  • The breeze is cooler.
  • The music sounds better.
  • The problems in your life don’t seem quite as bad.

At least until the next game starts.

Last night: Dodgers 8, Braves 2

Different uniform, same smile

Maisa is playing for Fort Dodge in a national tournament this week in Kansas City. She looks tough in that uniform! 😀

Cousin Spencer lives in KC and dropped by to watch today’s games.

Class 4A opponents are put on notice

I enjoyed watching my alma mater Western Dubuque win its substate final last night.

This is a heck of a team. The Bobcats struck out just twice in 40 plate appearances against an excellent Cedar Rapids Prairie team. Final score: 9-0.

WD also has three excellent pitchers. Class 4A teams are no doubt concerned about the possibility of matching up against the Bobcats.
