There WAS something to cheer about

Forget about Gagne gacking up a 1 run lead in the ninth: If my memory serves me, winning the division is not a prerequisite to being the World Series winner. And besides, we still are in first place: so unless I find out otherwise, all I can hear is "blah, blah, blah, blah"

Ciera had her first REAL game tonight as a cheerleader for the Yellow Jackets.

Between chasing Rakes off the bleachers, telling Rakes to STOP kicking dirt on people, and threatening Rakes with corporal punishment if he DIDN'T LEAVE THAT LITTLE BOY'S TOY alone, I thought she was fantastic.

In fact, a prettier cheerleader you could never find. The fact that none of the girls had any idea there was a game going on doesn't matter: in fact, I couldn't tell you if the football team won or lost.

I was there to watch my little girl cheer: as a sports fan, you have no idea how weird that is for me to type. But I honestly don't know: when it comes to your children, everything you've ever believed in just sort of gets tossed to the side.

A big thank you to JD for updating me during the game with the Sox score: I'm starting to think I should have stayed there for an extra hour: Rakes wouldn't have cared. He just wanted to climb the bleachers and terrorize the other kids.

Tomorrow is another day: the Sox have a 2.5 game lead. And the Natural is on the hill.

It's not perfect: but I'll take it.

Does anyone know a Dr. I can get some Prozac from cheap?

I believe you are to far down the road for prozac. I'm thinking crack or liquid Drain O.

Ted D said...

Yeah, you may be right.

What about Heroin?

Nothing bad can happen with that, right?

KAYLEE said...

You guys are full of it....and BOY IS SHE CUTE!!!!!!!!

I used to cheerlead but quit when I was 12!

KAYLEE said...

/////Kaylee I thought you moved to Omaha and had disconnected your computer.///////

NO SCOTT!!!!!!! Do I need to be here more? you trying to telling me something?

Carol said...

We're #1
We can't be #2
And we're going to beat
The whoopse out of you (Yankees ;)

HorshamScouse said...

You should get th team to bring something back from Toronto. That's where all the cheap stuff comes from.

.... or so I've heard.

Nice pic of Ciera in her uni. Cheerleading's not a big thing in the UK, so much so that when you said that Ciera was going out for her first game my immediate thought was: 'Equality: she'd make a great running back.' :)

Tex said...

\\Tex is one of those names better than the other?//

you think I'm not catching this? I'm a Thoreau kind of girl...simplify simplify simplify

JMP said...

Ciera look great in her uniform. I bet she had a grand time. Its a lot of fun watching your kids in any type of organized activity. Makes you beam like the sun!!! Enjoy it Ted! Its the best feeling on earth!

Ted D said...

Sorry for not commenting on everyone this morning: had a hectic day.

Carol, I like your rhyme: and a win tonight would help my nerves.

Horsham, "so you've been told"? Yeah..... and I was trying to figure out a way to say she would be at a football game but not playing and that was the best I could do. :) Yeah, no rough sports for her: I'll leave that to the hellions.

Tex, shock of all shocks, but I'm lost. ::waves hand over own head::

jmp, I do the best I can to enjoy it all: it's just now that we are getting into "running one or the other" all over town mode. Once I get into the swing of things I'm sure I'll be fine.

Tex said...

sorry ted but my most recent post is for Scottie...he posted to me on the previous post of yours.

::rolls eyes to Scott::

Carol said...

Ted, it says in the rule book that you're not allowed to have hectic days :D And I think Buchholz is good for anyone's nerves - Looking forward to tonight's game!

Ted D said...

Ah: gotcha Tex.

Can you take texts when you're teaching tonight? If you can, I'll send you some on the game. Only good ones of course.

beckperson said...

Ted, you're getting to be quite the texter. How have I missed being on your list?


Ted D said...

Carol, I somehow missed your comment: can I have a copy of that rulebook? I've got a few people I'd like to give it to. Looking forward to the kid pitching tonight.

Becks, email me your cell phone # and I'll text you something: probably "Get out of the rubber room". ;)

Mattie said...

Man, I go on a little sabbatical, and the ship comes apart at the seams...

Ted D said...

It's all your fault.

Christine E. said...

Evening everyone;

Ted: your girl looks adorable--glad she had a good time doing the cheeleader thing..:-)

Can the Sox seem to care any less? 3 up, 3 down, the only run/hit coming from JD Drew--they are not making this kid work AT ALL....

This team has me thoroghly disgusted..I am cranky, frustrated, I am barking at people for no reason...


Hope everyone is well!

Go Sox!

Ted D said...

Christine, it's OK. They still have time, and just think about how great you'll feel when they win tonight.

No Manny, No Youk: we need to get healthy.

Thanks for the nice words about Ciera: I'm a little partial to her myself. ;)

Mattie said...

Bro, I was wondering why we hadn't talked in a few I hold me personally responsible for the collapse.

Christine E. said...


Bases loaded and Sir Julio the Useless is well....USELESS..

They don't deserve toe win if they cannot beat this horribly crappy team!

I hate this!


Ted D said...

Mattie, it hasn't been for lack of effort: sorry for all the phone tag today.

Christine, you have got to cheer up: when they win, what will you think about yourself? ;)

Mattie said...

Yeah,'re talking but all I hear is "blah blah blah"

Where have I heard that recently?

I KNOW! I hate that it bothers me so much...they are a BASEBALL team for god's sake!

I feel all cranky and irrational--Do you have any of the that crack or liquid drain O left?

Go Sox!

I HATE LOSING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


and be here in october?


Mattie said...

Bub, we got Rusty a crate finally. But the poor guy can't come in the house, so he's out under the car port. He seems to be slightly ill with me, though I can't imagine why.

Ted D said...

Just hit him across the nose with a newspaper and be done with it.

Christine, I'm right there with you: strangely I'm calm though. I want to win the division BAD. However, I'd rather win it ALL. And in '04, we DID win it all. As the Wild Card.

And I could have cared less: bottom line is, we'll be in the dance. And as a fan, that's about as much as you can ask for. I still think they win the division by 5 games: the day off tomorrow and Tampa for the weekend is just what they need.

JMP said...

Hey Ted.
Did ya catch Gordon on FOX tonight?
That big guy, the part-owner, Peter,
reminded me of baby-huey. looked like him and acted like him.
What a nasty kitchen. My question is WHERE ARE THE HEALTH INSPECTORS???
After watching this show I might never eat out again!!!

Ted D said...

jmp, I TiVo'd it: off day tomorrow, figure I'll catch up with Gordon and Prison Break then.

Only thing I like about the offseason: I can watch a show when it happens. Plus the TiVO is in the bedroom, which means I can't watch after a game.

The wife goes to bed at an unGodly hour most nights.

scott h said...

Jr its a little out of character and ALARMING that you have so quickley started playing the," who says you have to win the division , we can win it all as a wildcard". Card.

Come on lets see that stiff upperlip. oops a little worm dirt just fell out!

Ted D said...

Don't get me wrong Bub: I WANT the division: and the worm dirt doesn't have anything to do with that.

I'm just trying to spin a positive on a negative right now: this is getting a bit ridiculous.
