Vodka, Vodka, Who's Got The Vodka?

It's been a rough week here at the Bat Cave and it's only Monday. Besides the whole being hacked thing (which I'll learn to let go of, eventually, promise) my Detroit Tigers are playing like shit crap. Seriously. For a team that was supposed to be so super-fantastic they sure do suck wind. And lucky me, that's how I'll be spending my upcoming Memorial Day! Watching my crappy Tigers likely get the crap kicked out of them by the on-a-roll Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Anaheim Angels. Normally I would like to think the mere presence of The Super Librarian in the stands would knock some sense into these guys - but with my current string of bad luck? Watch - someone will end up breaking a leg.

In other happier, sunshiner news - head on over to The Good The Bad The Unread today for more Harlequin SuperRomance madness with a guest post by Ellen Hartman! And yep, another chance to win free books! This one will be of great interest for you baby haters out there. These two books we're giving away? Not a baby in sight. Check it out.

Remember it's not just about the scoreboard, it's also about beer, hot dogs and peanuts. Oh, and don't forget sunburn, booing and the seven inning stretch. It's baseball baby! Baseball!

That said you've inspired others with your tragedy. I've been changing passwords and checking things twice. Hope you're feeling better.

Yeah, but baseball is more fun when your team isn't playing like crap :) It's not so much that they're losing, it's how terrible they're playing. Just awful. I'd take comfort in the fact that the Yankees are also terrible right now - but with ARod and Posada both out they at least have an excuse.

Yeah! Change those passwords! Don't be like me. It's so NOT fun.

You'll need harder drugs than Vodka.
Try switching to hockey. Illich does have one team playing well right now.

Big Sis: I am so out of the loop on hockey that I didn't know until yesterday that the Penguins made the finals. Geez. We DID watch the Dallas/Detroit game last night though, and now that the Red Wings are in I imagine we'll be tuning in a bit more regularly.

Love the pic! :) You know I love Patsy - want to be her when I grow up! :)

Oh, and I'm with Rosie - have a beer, a dog, and some peanuts and it's all good. Nothing like drinking at a game...only reason I would go. :)

I'm crossing my fingers for your Tigers to whip those Angels every game cause my team can't seem to put a win together again. They play Boston this weekend -- I think I need a lot of Vodka too LOL
