Friday, June 22, 2018 – Baseball, Omaha and Snarky Friday!

To the Big 12 (which are really only 10 schools) Conference and the Other Conferences:

SEC! It just means more!

Let’s Go Mississippi State Bulldogs!

Tuesday, June 12, 2018 – Star Trek and the CWS From The Bridge

Captain’s Log – Star Date – 06.12.2018 – From the bridge of the USS My House

It arrived this morning! A piece of furniture that can charge my cell phone, tablet and laptop – all at the same time. Can you believe – furniture that plugs into the wall. It has a wireless switch over in the event the electricity goes out.

Please know that between this high tech love seat and my new high tech bed that I may never leave my house again. Also because after purchasing these two items I have no funds to go anywhere.

This weekend, from one of these vantage points, I will watch the College World Series – also known as The SEC Conference versus the Big 12 Conference with a few other schools thrown in to round out the bracket.

So who will I root, root, root for this weekend from reclines of the techno furniture? This is the final series I would like to see. THE University of Texas versus Mississippi State! If the Texas Aggies are not playing, then I’m going with the other SEC team of maroon and white and with a dog mascot. GO STATE!

Monday, May 9, 2016 – Texas Aggies – Armed and Dangerous

Monday, May 9, 2016 – Texas Aggies – Armed and Dangerous

I am not referring to the fact that we as Texans can carry hand-guns like real rootin’ tootin’ gun totin’ cowboys from days of yore. Like so many public universities, TAMU has campus carry. You can carry your handgun, but only in selected areas. I hope if a shooter shoots it is where I can carry my gun.

Campus tour 7.5.2014 2014-07-05 098 (800x600)

FYI – You can’t carry your gun here, Pilgrim.

I am referring to the no-hit shut out pitched by Texas Aggie Kyle Simonds against # 10 Vanderbilt. Try that on with your Gloria jeans from the 1980’s.

Simonds made history as only the 11th Aggie in over 100 years to pitch a no hitter. Vanderbilt hit the ball hard in the ninth, but center fielder Nick Choruby made a spectacular diving catch. The game was one error away from Simonds pitching a perfect game. But it was a Maddux just the same. For a game to be a Maddux, the pitcher must toss a complete game shutout, and throw fewer than 100 pitches. Simonds threw 83 pitches. Can I get a big WHOOP, please!

It is a long way still to Omaha and the College World Series on June 18-28/29. Of course the Aggies must get through the dreaded SEC with good teams such as LSU and Florida. We will meet the Commodores (not the Lionel Richie group) again too.

Hopefully the Aggie baseball pitching staff is deep and strong enough to carry us to and through the tournament to the dogpile in Omaha. I wonder if one of those pitchers can play quarterback.
