Oh Yeah, I Still Have a Blog

Sorry about the lack of content lately. I've been all wrapped up in playing fantasy baseball. This is something that I've avoided for the last three years because of how addictive it is. I used to spend my afternoons refreshing ESPN.com updates on every game being played, looking at how all of my players were doing. It was worse than crack. So I walked away and vowed never to return.

But a funny thing happened this year. I started getting very involved with a blog called Lookout Landing. We actually get together and play softball, whiffleball and football year round. We meet up at the bar occasionally to drink beer and have developed some nice friendships. Some of those guys invited all the Lookout Landing regulars to play in a fantasy baseball league. Next thing I knew, I was signed up for three different teams!

So... the official baseball season actually began two days ago. The Oakland Athletics and the Boston Redsox opened the season by playing a two-game series in Japan. The rest of the regular season doesn't start for another week or so. This was just an exhibition thing. Guess who was up at 3:00am this morning to catch some of the game live (I had to see how Rich Harden was pitching, since he's on two of my fantasy baseball teams.)

Luckily, I'm fully aware of how cracked out this behavior is (and OMG I'm tired today.) I'm hoping that no intervention is necessary. If I decide to completely abandon Stave It Off, or start only writing about fantasy baseball, someone please punch me. Mebbe I can chalk it up to how much I just love baseball.

BTW, Olaiya is playing on my softball team this year! That totally rocks. I always wanted to date a softball player.

Dude, you gotta be real underhanded with those softball players. They'll throw you a curveball just to watch you strike out. It's totally hit-or-miss. Good luck getting past first base.

Anonymous,
"Still dating" wouldn't be the right term. We're seeing each other again. We're "romantically linked" as they say in the tabloids. Breaking up just didn't stick. We had unresolved issues of love and affection.
