Koufax

Counting Down...

We have achieved daffodils (well, two of them, anyway), and about a week and a half earlier than last year. Tried to pick up some forsythia plants at the Depot last night, but the garden center wasn't open yet. It is open today, however, so I shall stop by tonight. It's supposed to be a lovely weekend, so I shall dig, and perhaps do some other yard work.

The Dodgers broke camp after Wednesday's game, with most of the team heading to Las Vegas to play an exhibition against the Mariners. Collapse )

I should probably also note that Anna Benson has filed for divorce from her husband, Kris, a pitcher with the Orioles. Anna was quite the distraction as she tried to promote her own career as a minor celebrity wannabe while her soon-to-be ex was pitching for the Mets last year. She publically threatened to sleep with everyone on the team if she ever caught hubby cheating on her. The pitching poor Mets grew tired of her act, and traded Kris, a decent pitcher, to the Orioles for a handful of magic beans and Jorge Julio. She claims the marriage is "irretrievably broken." I suspect it's more that you can't keep the girl down in Baltimore after she's seen New York.
