adios sunshine

the warm weather is gone and the struggle with winter is about to begin, i hope i'm ready.

after the harrowing experience of being kidnapped by a nogoodnik neighborhood punk, the scooter is in dry dock. i spent the better part of yesterday cleaning out and organizing all the treasures and clutter that were collected in the summer to make room the poor thing. the oil was changed, the tank was filled with ethonal-free high octane gas and now it's just a matter of finding the trickle charger to finish the task.

i've had the scooter for two summers now and try as i may, i couldn't come up with a good nickname, but this morning jesus whispered the magical nickname in my ear.

from this point forward, the mighty scooter shall be known as MACK. mack is a very important name in classic literature. it was mack who ended the reign of terror from yertle, the tyrant of salamasond and it was mack who organized the mighty frog hunt in cannery row. yes, mack is a titan of classic  literature. long live mack and thank you jesus!

but scooters aren't the center of my universe at the moment.  the baseball playoffs have me in seventh heaven. yesterday i watched verlander throw a complete game for the astros with 13 strikeouts!  it's pretty rare to see a complete game pitched in the era of bullpens and pitch counts. the cherry on top was the fact that it was against those evil new york yankees! verlander's cherry on top is kate upton.

the dodgers beat the cubs which was great but kershaw only lasted 5 innings which has me worried. kershaw is my favorite player and he was on the disabled list this year due to a back strain and that gives me pause. kershaw vs verlander in the world series would be a match made in heaven.

speaking of heaven, i've decided it might be the place for me after all.  studying the nag hammadi library by day and orgasming on baseball in the evening has convinced me that there just might be something to the intelligent design point of view.

mack, verlander, kershaw, nag hammadi library...........


billy loves you sons of bitches.

  1. Anyone who kicks the Yankees ass is a hero to me!
    I don’t know a thing about the nag hammadi library or the Gnostics. You have, as usual, tickled my interest. Mack is a fine name for the scooter. I do admire the way you care for your things in this use it up and throw away society.

  2. Even without intelligent design you can still believe in a heaven, and it can be what you want it to be. Cooling off here also, at least for a few days.

  3. Wait, why do you cheer against the Cubs? No fair!

    Those dang Dogers are getting the best of my Cubbies.

    I do appreciate good pitching like that Verlander performance, but all I can think about right now is why can't the Cubs hit? They had the most runs in the second half of the season, and then all the bats went cold. Baseball is a crazy game, my friend.

  4. Yes, winter is coming. Glad to hear the scooter got a proper name. The Astros are going to need another gem from Verlander to stay in the playoffs. And Kershaw bounced back pretty well last night so I think he's going to be OK. Take care, Mr. Rosewater.

  5. The link in which Johnny Cash is standing in front of a choir of women clad in white reminds me of his appearance on Columbo. Did you ever catch that?
