Random thoughts on a rainy Thursday

Here are some random thoughts as October comes to a close.

  • I’m rooting for the Rangers to win the World Series. Making the World Series in consecutive seasons is no easy feat, and it would be great for their loyal fans to experience a baseball championship parade.
  • I still don’t understand how in the biggest game of the season there was such a big communications breakdown between the Cards dugout and bullpen.
  • Does anyone really care whether the NBA ever plays a game again or not? Okay, that’s not nice of me since I have some friends employed by NBA teams and I’d hate to see them lose their jobs. So for the sake of my friends I hope the NBA figures out how to save their season.
  • Is it time for spring training yet?
  • In a strange scheduling quirk, we’ll start the 2012 season ahead of several major league teams as the big leagues don’t start until we do this year.
  • I just spent a week in California and did I mention it was nearly cloudless and 75 for the whole week? A guy could get used to that type of weather.  Oh wait, for 35 years I was used to it.
  • I’m personally rooting for Tony Beasley to return to Harrisburg as the Sens manager in 2012.
  • Can you really get used to the cold and snow?
  • Kudos to new Caps radio guy John Walton on a great start in DC, but then, did you expect anything different? He’s the consummate professional.
  • Thanks to Tim Foreman, Brandon Forsburg, and Ben Moyer (and many more), Metro Bank Park is nearly ready for baseball after the floods in mid-September. Those guys have done an amazing job cleaning the field and the ballpark.
  • Did you notice that over the past two seasons the Senators have the best record in the Eastern League at 157 wins and 127 losses for a winning percentage of .553?
  • Is it time for spring training yet?
  • When all is said and done, does Albert stay with the Cards or does he end up somewhere else?
  • How many out there remember when the Kansas City Royals weren’t a small market team, but a franchise blueprint to follow?
  • Can the 49ers keep it up and a respectable season?
  • I’d like to watch one more night baseball game at Candlestick Park to see if it was really as bad as I remember!?!
  • Best Senators game this season you ask? Too many to chose from but it’s hard to argue against September 1st with the Cowboy Monkeys Rodeo and Stephen Strasburg on the mound.  And did I mention the Senators clinched the regular season division championship that night!?!?
  • I can’t wait for the gates to open to Metro Bank Park in 2012 as we have some pretty cool changes in store for fans this coming season along with more interesting entertainment.
  • Only because my wife watches, but am I the only one that thinks Chas Bono can’t dance? I don’t care about anything else, I thought the show was about dancing!?!?
  • Do we really still need a video on how to buckle the lap buckle on an airplane? Really?

Okay, I think that’s it with the random thoughts on this dreary Thursday.  It’ll be a nice night to prepare  for Saturdays broadcast and to watch game 6, if it’s not rained out.
