Roundup: 12 Year 0ld Boy Edition

1) I spent a good chunk of my weekend listening to John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WCBS cover the Yankees/Sox games. John and Suzyn are the announcers for the Yanks out of New York. Both are never negative about players or teams. In fact, on Sunday, they both spent at least an inning going over the 1967 Bo Sox's players. Yeah, they can be a little obscure, but it's baseball. After that Sunday game....we got El Capitan showing a little emotion below. The Yanks clinched the best record in the Majors, and the division. There's still a lot of baseball to be played, but "Go Yankees!"

2) Few things make me smile as much as Goths. Granted, I don't understand the movement, so I wouldn't make a very good goth (and I hate wearing black, but that's a post for another day), but goths still make me smile. Needless to say this picture of the Prime Minister of Spain's Goth Daughters? Awesome. I can't decide which one is my favorite.

3) Have I mentioned yet, that my life revolves around baseball right now? Last week one of my brothers (guess which) told me that he dreamt he was at a baseball game with Derek Jeter. A few days ago, Kelli dreamt she was a new Red Sox fan with a ton of gear. She was really excited to tell a friend of ours about her newly acquired fascination with Boston..and a little apprehensive how I would react.

4) To Celebrate the end of the Fiscal Year (Okay, that would be me), Kell and I are going to Maine. I've never been north of Boston so I'm really excited. Plus, we're hoping to go whale watching and spend quality time around Bar Harbor. I've even been practicing to say Bar Harbor like a native.

5) This picture came out last week or the week before, but it still cracks me up. Seriously, our president is a geek.

The PM's gothic daughters look like they take after their mother. It makes me wonder if their outfits were tamed down a bit for the photo op.

I'm just glad that no pictures of me as 13 are on the internet! haha. Poor girls.

Megan-Oh, now I'm curious to see what the original outfits looked like.

Steve- Were you a 13 year old goth? That makes me like you more, if you were.

You know, these girls are just being themselves (we think), and for that we celebrate them for it!

As for baseball ---
Did you see/hear the prank ARod instigated after Ramiro Pena hit his first ML home run in the game last night? Go Yankees & keep it cool & loose.

Even better, I was a 13 year old goth GIRL! hahaha.
