We are not worthy

Poetry has been called “Emotion recollected in tranquility.”   And tonight the SF Giants, especially Madison Bumgarner and Conor Gillaspie proved a great baseball game is poetry.


Even as a little kid, I liked baseball. But I can trace the moment when I really fell in love for life to 1968, when my favorite pitcher, who had won WS games 2 & 5, pitched a improbable complete game to win game 7. #MickeyLolich #MadisonBumgarner #Leftiesrule #SFGiants


Pitcher who threw 1st pitch for #SFGiants in do-or-die game walked off mound having thrown last pitch of game. #oldschool #Madbum #WildCard

And for fans outside the San Francisco Bay Area – Conor Gillaspie?  Who?  Yeah. The man at third base who replaced Nunez who replaced the beloved Matt Duffy and his awesome cat Skeeter.  Buy this man a kitten.  A big one.


Heck of a #NLWildCard game. Good thing we didn’t have a scintillating #VPDebate to distract us from it. #SFGiants #NYMets

Not a pleasant side story at Toronto’s Rogers Centre to last night’s Blue Jays win, as Orioles’ LF Hyun Soo Kim had a beer thrown at him. This would never have happened had NY made the playoffs and the game been at Yankee Stadium. Beer there is much too expensive to throw at opposing players.

While #BuckShowalter knows he made mistake, he can take comfort knowing #ZackBritton can now pitch multiple innings in game 2. ALWildCard

A British study found that family travel may not be that relaxing, as the combination of new places and dealing with new people can take up a lot of “brain power” and leave everyone exhausted.
So maybe it’s not such a bad thing for Dad to turn that car around and go home.

A Utah man posted a picture of the hospital bill for his baby’s delivery, which included a $39.95 fee for “skin to skin”, getting to hold the baby it was born. The hospital was no doubt appalled, thinking the fee should have been at least twice that.

A Samsung Galaxy Note 7 exploded during boarding of a Southwest flight at Louisville yesterday. Maybe Blackberry needs a new slogan, “Our phones are old but they don’t blow up.”

Al Gore is going to campaign this week for Hillary Clinton. And things were going so well.

Nice blue tie last night, Gov. Pence.   “It wasn’t blue It was red.” #VPDebate

#TimKaine “My running mate should be President. #MikePence “I have a running mate?” #VPDebate



An interesting story from earlier this year on Mike Pence reported by the IndyStar – The Governor in 2015 had plans to start “a state-run taxpayer-funded news outlet that would make pre-written news stories available to Indiana media, as well as sometimes break news about his administration.” He dropped the plan after it was ridiculed with names like “Pravda on the Plains.”
Maybe THIS is why Trump really chose him as a potential V.P?

Well, that didn’t take long. Now Trump on Mike Pence’s debate performance: “I’m getting a lot of credit because that’s really my first so-called choice, my first hire as we would say in Las Vegas.” Uh, has the Donald forgotten all the campaign staff he has hired, and fired?

Trump’s tweet last night “The constant interruptions last night by Tim Kaine should not have been allowed. ”
Of course Mike Pence should have been able to interrupt more. Because he is the bestest, greatest running mate of all time.
