We Messed With Texas Part II and Other Things

The Orioles again defeated the Texas Rangers in extras 7-5. The game was very intersting to say the least. George Sherill allowed two runs in the ninth but he still got the save


“This pitch will have a very nerve wrecking outcome”

The way he goes about saves reminds of Todd Jones.

The Orioles got homers from Huff

and Adam Jones

Adam Jones is congratulated after hitting a two-run home run in the 10th inning against the Texas Rangers. The Orioles (6-2) won, 7-5, in 10 innings.

whom I’m really taking a liking to.

Alfredo Simon came out early with an injury

Orioles shortstop Cesar Izturis chats with starter Alfredo Simon in the second inning. Simon left the game with a sore elbow.

“Would it feel better if your Mommy gave it a kissy?”

And the bullpen did enough to hold back the Rangers just enough to let the O’s win. Now I gotta give kudos to a ezcellent play made in the third by Adam Jones, B-Rob, and Gregg Zaun and a little Ryan Freel. There’s a gapper hit, Adam Jones grabs throws it (Ryan Freel squated down to make an easier throw) to B-Rob who throw to Zaunn who lays the tag Micheal Young

and stops a run from scoring. I got out of my seat after Zaunny made that play and I uttered some words of happiness I can’t recall. Overall another excellent game all around by the O’s.

If (and when) we win tonight I will have a PSD, you can guess what it is.


Tonight the Orioles will all don the 42 uniforms of Jack Rosevelt Robinson. if you look you will notice the fact those uniforms

 Orioles plan tribute to Jackie Robinson

lack a name on the back as way to pay tribute in a different way. I think that is the same reason that Mo Rivera hasn’t given up his number, his name isn’t on the unifrom!


I hope you had a peaceful Tax Day. (I doubt it) I don’t have to pay taxes (as of now:-()


First Bob and I have blog called Young Guns

(another 5 minute PSD)

and you can tell what it’s about. Anyone can read it we also are looking for those in grades 6-12 to join as bloogers.

We also copied form Julia and Scott and we have a bet on the O’s-Sox series coimg up soon, uno problemo it’s a four game series this slipped under priamrily my nose until just now if the series is tied then we’ll each have to do posts. if the Sox split or win the series somehow what are you suggestions Julia, Bob suggested Jed Lowrie!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m think Babe Ruth (he counts and I’ll focus on his Sox days and just a little about that trade)



It’s obvious who my dedication is:


Jack Rosevelt Robinson. No explanation needed.
