I love you, Brandon Morrow!!!

OK, so onto something new, yet again. Maybe you don't know this about me, but I love baseball. Mariners' baseball. And when I seen the hope for the Mariners' future flashing at 24 frames per second* in front of me, I can't help but get really, really excited! And tonight, Brandon Morrow blew the sliding roof off the place. I remember watching his first game as a Mariner's reliever and thinking, "They should really let this guy start. He's kind of amazing." And, he got his big league chance tonight and he surpassed all expectations. He pitched more than eight (8!) hit less innings. Someone finally stole one off him, but you just couldn't ask for better. I will remember watching this game tonight when he's pitching in the Mariner's first appearance in the World Series. I can't wait.

With all the teen exuberance I can muster I want to shout, "I love you, Brandon Morrow!"

*Is cable broadcast baseball shot on film?

The Others "Pale In" Comparison

I just wanted to say that I am loving Sarah Palin right now. She's got a huge heart and is actually, truly genuine. Beyond that she's a real deal candidate who left it all on the convention floor. That's the way I like to see it played. She's not mean spirited, but feisty.

She knows how to get things done and won't be bought and sold like most politicians.

Go get 'em, "Sarah Barracuda."
