"I believe in the Church of Baseball. I've tried all the major religions, and most of the minor ones. I've worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms, and Isadora Duncan. I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I heard that, I gave Jesus a chance. But it just didn't work out between us. The Lord laid too much guilt on me. I prefer metaphysics to theology. You see, there's no guilt in baseball, and it's never boring... which makes it like sex...I've tried 'em all, I really have, and the only church that truly feeds the soul, day in, day out, is the Church of Baseball."

BASEBALL! The Philles lost to the Braves in the opening game of the season. Alas, but I don't actually care much about either teams. Tomorrow MY team, ORIOLES, is up against the Yankees. I am looking forward to having games on while doing work this month. BASEBALL! I am really excited.

Meanwhile, Jezebel had a great post from last year: 3 Reasons Why Smart Women Love Baseball. This year, they have a great opening day post with MOVIE CLIPS. GO.


And now either to work on fic or sleep.

THE ORIOLES WON 10-5 AGAINST THE YANKEES! HAH! I don't care what the sports forecasters say, it is going to be a great season. By the way, the new Road uniforms?! AWESOME. I am so glad they have Baltimore written on them. The Mets won against the Reds! Which is also awesome.

My work load is crazy but I am ignoring it like usual. My brain says NO.

ORIOLES! Why, hello there Mr. Jones!
