Thursday goodness, in the form of a FANTASTIC baseball game at at&t park last night w/ mighty mighty matt cain. i met a philly on the street earlier this week (awkward, but whatever.) this beast, above, is pretty much awesome all the time. hooray thursday.
DOGS, SAN FRANCISCO
In my ongoing quest to be somewhat adequately prepared for an earthquake/natural disaster/zombie apocalypse, i stock up on weird survival tools. enter best made co. supplier of beautiful tools. i’d be super willing to try out a best made axe for future zombie survival and report back, if any one at best made co is down. i’m currently eyeing, in order of sanity:
can opener, set of 5, $5
silver gripper tweezers, $6.5
match safe, $9
axe sling $175 how the frack is it april? in april the inside of my brain looks like: baseball baseball work work and baseball. could be better. could be worse. these guys. angel pagan (played w/ the mets last season) and melky (royals last season) have fit in nicely. angel pagan isn’t hitting that well right now but i like him, and melky, well, his name is melky. bumgarner and cain are locked down for years. buster posey has shingles, lincecum looks kind of lost and brian wilson is out for the season.
People always tell me they don’t like baseball. try this: find it on the radio, your local announcers, and sit outside, drink a cheap beer, maybe tune your bike or just look at the stars. my dad used to put it on the car radio with all the doors open and pull weeds or kick a soccer ball with me. baseball always sounds like summer, even when it’s cold and rainy in san francisco.
