I love it when a plan comes together.

Pictures from San Diego
I’ve really got nothing at all to talk about lately, so… I put up a few pictures from the games in San Diego. They can be found here: http://flickr.com/photos/penner42/sets/72157605578587212/.
I told myself I’d never do it, but I have sadly jumped on the Twitter bandwagon. Dammit. http://www.twitter.com/metsfan/ (0)

I will not be joining everyone in Vegas this weekend, for a few reasons. I really didn’t want to go just Friday night to Sunday night (or Monday morning), and I’ve already got plans for my vacation days this year. Also, I haven’t played much poker lately, and just generally don’t know if I can handle a weekend in Vegas right now. Anyway, I’m sure everyone will manage to have a good time without me. 🙂
Instead, I’m heading to San Diego this weekend, and going to two Mets/Padres games. Saturday night, I’m sitting way up in the nosebleeds, and then Sunday afternoon I’ll be four rows behind the Mets dugout. Looks like I’ll get to see Oliver Perez and Pedro pitch. It’s going to be a scary couple of games. I’ve never been to PETCO Park (all caps? really?) before, so it should be fun. The Mets look like they might have started to turn things around, winning three straight series now. Of course, two of those series were against the Dodgers (mediocre) and the Giants (bad), but one was against the Marlins, who have been pretty good. The Padres are another bad team, so hopefully we can pull out another series there.
I’m looking forward to this. I think I need to get out of Santa Barbara for a weekend right now.
MLB.tv is now showing EVERY game as blacked out in my location, regardless of where the game is. They need to fix their damn system, or just get rid of the damn blackouts so this stuff isn’t necessary. (0)

Pedro comes off the DL tonight, making his first start since the first week of the season. He’s facing Barry Zito and the Giants. The game is sort of a rematch of a game I went to in 2003, except back then both pitchers were good. And it was Red Sox/A’s, not Mets/Giants.
Hopefully, this game will have the same winning pitcher as the one five years ago.
Weird. MLB.tv has all of a sudden started working on my Linux machine at work. I guess I can now watch the Mets lose all the time, instead of just following the gamecasts. (0)
Is it too early to stop paying attention to baseball? meh. (0)

Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.
I’ve been looking for a Back to the Future related t-shirt that doesn’t suck for a while now. I finally found one. This got delivered this week:
From Snorg Tees.
I’ve got nothing else for you at the moment.
It’s not even ten minutes after the game was supposed to start, and tonight’s Mets/Yanks game is already postponed due to rain. Stupid weather. (0)
