Before I even begin to write anything, I think we need to just take a moment to relax....and look at bunnies:
OK. I feel a little bit better now.
Baby bunnies in gingham tea cups are almost adorable enough to make me not think about the fact that we just lost a series to Seattle. Almost, but not quite.
They are probably cute enough to make me stop throwing things though. It's a start.
Here's something else that makes me feel little better: Gas is still like $4.25/gal at Seattle gas stations. Suck it, Seattle.
Oh, and this picture makes me feel a little better too. Can you find the funny? Look close.
You know, I had been hoping we could take advantage of the Seattle games this 2nd half, so that an almost inevitable craptastic 4 game series in Anaheim wouldn't hurt so much. But.....no. That's not really how this is turning out. Suddenly playing 7 more games against the M's doesn't make me quite as giddy as it once did.
I do have to give some kudos to Jason Kubel tonight. He did pretty awesome. And at the end of the game, when I was desperately chanting "Don't be 'Third Out Kubel,' don't be 'Third Out Kubel,' don't be 'Third Out Kubel'....." he came through and was NOT, in fact, the third out of the 9th. So....good job, I guess. Thanks.
I'm sorry for bringing up the end of the game. You were trying not to think about it, weren't you?
That's better, right?
