Friday, June 23, 2017 – My Three Favorite Blogs. And Snarky Friday and the CWS.
Before the weekly Friday Snark arrives, here are three bloggers I enjoy reading. If and why they read my dribble Here’s What I’m Thinking I cannot say, but I am happy when I see a like them. I try to return the LIKE because I like your stuff too.
First if you are looking for items of beauty, Donna Kramer’s My One Beautiful Thing covers the spectrum from magnificent to creepy, but always intriguing. I like the fact she blogs about beauty in the world and actively searches and shares. We should all look for beauty and can be reminded of such by reading some her posts.
If you are not leaning toward beauty that day, check out Ben’s Bitter Blog. We Make Bitter Better. What a Snark you are. Love it. Ben is a funny guy. Yes, bitterness can be funny. I start laughing at his posts and then realize “Oh I just had that happen to me.” Loved your comments about those who think we just whip out these 500 words and throw in some still pics and videos and boom. http://frame.bloglovin.com/?post=5709890675&blog=8330055&frame_type=none
Christian Mihai. Not only do I get to say HWIT is read worldwide, but so does Christian. I love your photo. Like me, you either used an old photograph or you are a child prodigy – probably both. Thank you for the encouragement about blogging. I read What I Learned Five Years of Blogging often – like yesterday when I did not post anything and thought “why bother?” Thanks for the support and inspiration.
Check out these three for a diversity of interests, viewpoints and perspectives on life.
But now entering the page from the left margin is The Friday Snark to take us out to the ballgame at the College World Series (CWS).
Now getting on the Go-Home, See You Next Year Bus are the Louisville Cardinals. The second base umpire graduated from the Stevie Wonder School of Umpiring. It is probably an online MOOC from TCU. (Google MOOC). Mr. Ump, you should be thankful the Louisville coach only chewed your butt out before being ejected. It could have been UCLA softball coach, Lisa Fernandez. She would have laid your blind butt on second base.
CWS and ESPN Announcers. After an intense discussion of LSU’s shortstop, Kramer Robertson’s new hair color (he went from dark brown to stringy, drug store, roommate done blond), you actually spent the entire Louisville bottom of the eighth inning discussing Bob Gibson and Sandy Koufax. While they are indeed on the roster of pitching greats, they were NOT on the baseball diamond! The TCU pitcher smoked the first two Louisville batters with six pitches that even I could determine were awesome. I believe the term is “Rembrandt the plate.” Not one time, did you call a TCU or Louisville players’ name. Call the damn game! I would much rather hear: “Three up and three down for the Cardinals on NINE TCU pitches going to the bottom of the eighth” than “Well, if I faced Bob Gibson…” Talk about ad nauseous.
Are you listening, Ben?
Tonight we get to see what color Kramer Robertson’s hair is as LSU faces Oregon State. Here’s what I’m thinking…
Tiger like Beaver tonight, but Beaver come back to eat Tiger. Then Beaver is eaten twice – one for entrée and one for dessert – by Big Ass Alligator from Florida swamp.
