back again. i'm becoming more as a pop in than a regular...i'm jus taking care of a few things.

i went to the braves cardinals game on monday and saw chipper jones get hurt again. at least he's okay. and i'm also going to another game next week with a friend. i live in florida, so we can go to spring training games more easily than a regular season game.

have yet to play mvp 07, but will when i get time this weekend and finish up a few things. i'm still trying to get myself in order, but we're getting there. i may get back into modding depending on how things go.

got my diploma from college, and still wating for transcript. i will start looking for a job at the end of the month. have to enjoy spring training.

still in the boonis. chances of driving are none...i may have to move to a more bike friendly city.

more on sunday.

...From 60 degree weather on Tuesday to 20 degree weather today with almost a foot of snow. Yeah, that's the Northeast for you. Don't tell us who live here how much it sucks. (We already know.)

...For those of you who don't have the 1994 mod by Hory, take the time to download it and install it. You'll see how baseball was just thirteen years ago. It's a great mod.

...Good luck to Carter and Trues with that competition site that has gone up this week. Lot's of people joining! Get some games in and enjoy that new part of the site.

...No, I didn't join.

...Got to get a cortisone shot in my right knee in about a month. Not looking forward to that at all.

...I'm glad Gary Sheffield is not on the Yankees anymore. This guy never shuts up.

...College basketball to me is more fun to watch than the pro game.

...Do any of you guys think a major trade will happen with any team before opening day?

...The best times in your life are when you are in school. The problem is you don't realize it until that time has passed.

...Send a thanks to your favorite modder today. They are the reason why this site is here today.

-- I think I like this site more as a user than a moderator.

-- Relationships are hard.

-- Depression sucks the life out of you. You spend all day/night in bed and don't sleep at all.

-- The 94 mod kicks ***. Donate/give thanks if you feel the same way.

-- Happiness feels elusive this morning.

Florida's been awesome. I've been here about a week now an its been great. I saw the Jays vs. Detroit in Dunedin yesterday, today I drove the 2 hrs to watch them face the Astros in Kissimmee and tomorrow I'm going back to Dunedin to watch the Jays take on the Yankees before I go back to Miami. Its been quite an adventure and I'm loving every minute of it. Plus the Golf courses here are awesome I played a round in Miami last Tuesay.

Here goes:

...drafting my second fantasy team today. Last time I had lots of resources with like 5 webpages of projections open. This time I'm drafting with nothing except maybe baseball-reference.com for a few... baseball references.

...Nooooooo! I just checked the draft order, and I'm right smack dab in the middle. Since this is a snake round, I'll be in the middle of everything. The last person has more advantage than the middle person, because they have the last pick of the first round and first pick of the second.

...Signs of the apocalypse: "sources" spelled wrong on a towel washing-instruction tag.

...I like this year's Yankee team. Of course, I probably said the same thing about last year's team, and look how they turned out... still, I'm defenitely excited about baseball season!

...Did I mention I was excited about baseball season?

...If global wasrming wasn't real (even though it is), or if we weren't the cause of it, does that mean you would suddenly take care of the environment less?

...Obama in '08! :D

...Check out everything in my sig. Join/read/comment/mourn (for karma)!

The Jays are looking to dump Jon Thomson already, and replace him with Josh Towers...How come I am starting to worry, and it's only March?

I have a feeling the Jays are going to regress as a team this year, and Thomas will want out by June. Towers will self destruct, we have no reliable back-up catcher, and shortstop is still iffy, even with Clayton...another third place finish for us.

Anyone watching the "Black Donnellys". Excellent show.

Make sure you join in the "Ladder Competition". Carter and Trues have put a lot of work into it. Should be fun, once the games pickup.

See you next week.

The best times in your life are when you are in school. The problem is you don't realize it until that time has passed.

...Opening Day (not to be confused with that opening night crap - sorry, I still think the first game of the season should be a day game)...t-minus 1 week, 6 days, and some hours.

...although Purdue had other ideas, Florida's still alive for the repeat. Kansas, if both teams make it that far, will be a hell of a Final Four game. if they get to the finals, Florida will take it.

...basically that's it - Opening Day is occupying 98% of my thoughts. can't wait!

My one thought of the day has to do with the NCAA tourney. I've been hearing how there was only one good day of basketball among the first 4 (Saturday). As a genuine college basketball fan, I loved every minute of the tourney so far. People can bash the tournament committee all they want, but they have clearly done a fine job so far - no seed higher than a 7 is still left in the tournament. I'm glad there's no George Mason this year. I want only teams that have a serious chance of winning the national championship in the Sweet 16. You can not tell me George Mason was one of the best 4 teams last year in college basketball. The tournament has been perfect so far in my eyes, and I can't wait for Thursday to watch more of it.

...One week from today baseball season starts!! Isn't that great? It will be the Mets at the Cardinals at 8:05 pm EST. Probably on ESPN. Whatever happened to the Reds kicking off the season with a day game in Cincinnati?

...Probably the best uniform in the National Hockey League has to be the one the Montreal Canadians wear. Of course, many of you here will debate this.

...The only good thing about the injury to Chien-Ming Wang, if you can call it a good thing, is this hamstring injury happened right now instead of during the pennant race.

...The guy that wrote this article made some good points about the increased urgency of the Yankees getting Roger Clemens. Personally, I hope the guy stays retired because I'm sick of looking at him.

...It has been four straight days since I have walked on snow. What a nice feeling.

...Mvp baseball is at its most enjoyable when you are playing it against someone on here online.

...I tried Tiger Woods 2007 but I still like the Links series. Also, I have CD's full of courses for that game from here so I am all set.

...I don't like it when people come up to me and say "try this, you'll like it" when I know I don't.

...I have a niece on Saturday who will be turning twelve years old. Where has the time gone?

...The conclusion of the NCAA tournament is going to make the rest of this week fly by.

...MLB 07 The Show(PS2) is growing on me big time. Mostly thanks to the great pitching interface. The franchise bug still sucks. So does the lack of roster editing.(it can be done, but its a pain in the butt) With some creative slider tweaking, it plays pretty close to MVP.

...I've switched to bottled beer only. No more cans.

...Taking a year off from playing (real) baseball. This will be the first season Ive missed since I took a year off to coach legion ball in 1993. My legs and my shoulder can use a break. Plus Im going to be swamped at work this summer. Plus Im fat.

...Its supposed to be 89 here today. Not liking that much.

...Subscribed to DirecTV and the MLB Extra Innings package. Wired up a box in my garage. The wife and kids each get their own room in the new house, the garage is mine. Now I need to go buy a recliner and a little fridge.

...I wish there were more Royals on the Pic of the Day.

...I used to be a big hockey(Avalanche) and college football(CSU Rams) fan, but my interest has declined in recent years. Now its pretty much all baseball.

i've been going to quite a few spring training games the past couple of weeks, and i think my photography skills are getting much better than before.

today was one of the first days it felt like true spring bliss. now i'm wating for the regular season to start so the games mean something. i'm tired of basketball non stop. but college baseball is nice.

but i'm going to one more game on wedesnday before that date...

i keep forgetting that my friends still have school sometimes, as i'm in post graduate mode, and my friends are ultra busy with their projects and stuff. i actually helped one of my best friends big time on his project, and he did very well, but he's still stressed, like most of my fellow classmates that started out with me.

but i'm still mad at the school for opening the library right after i graduate (liars).

i think i'm ready to get back into mvp again, i have the time this year, just need to finish up some loose ends first.

waiting for opening day now...get here soon...

... The Redwings lost that shootout on the most bogus calls ever. the one they called a goal, the puck came in the net like 5 seconds after the ref declared it no goal and the play over. And then, the puck clearly was in when the wings shot, but, no goal

... I'm really getting into basketball. I've been playing it all the time now.

... I can't wait for baseball to start.

.... I just had to make a Cookbook for Home Ec.(don't ask) And it took me like 5 hours.

Not Much is new, but here goes:

Went to a birthday party for my cousin last night. My brother and I bought a quart of Jagrmeister...don't remember much, accept my wife driving my drunk *** home.

Leaving to take my son to see the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Should be good for a laugh. He is 8 now, and has kind of grown put of them, but he still wants to see this.

Baseball for real next week. Can't wait! Love this time of year...before you know it, it will be October, and we all will be reminiscing about the season that was.

My wife is starting to look pregnant. Starting to get a little belly. It suits her...I am a lucky man.

See you all next week.

...baseball. Happiness.

...Yankee season: not starting to good. Two starters injured. My stomach doesn't feel so good... Nervousness.

...OSU headed to final four. Happiness.

...Georgetown good match to be OSU. Nervousness.

...I discovered http://www.uniwatchblog.com about a week ago, and I've been reading it almost every day, it's really quite cool.

...Just so people know I'm not an impostor: ditto.

...This week: I'm gonna make my random thoughts just commentary on other peoples random thoughts :D

...I don't know whether or not abc is an impostor, but I sure do like his avatar, the sprial is very nice.

...MLB 2K7 is not crap, but it's noooo MVP.

...Wang being injured sucks, a whole lot, cause the Yanks can sure use him, and I too can't wait to see a live game.

...The Red Wings did get screwed on that call, but it's not like they need the points too badly.

...We could use more Royals for POTD, mostly though Alex Gordon cause I really can't think of many more Royals worthy of it.

...I really do miss seeing the Reds lead off the season, it's just tradition, coming from one of the fans in the younger group on mvpmods this should be a sign of the kinda fan I am.

Nice idea. Good job.

Yeah, I guess so. But what's stopping Ace152 (the guy who posted this thought) from posting Royals photos himself? I won't do it because of one reason. I hate the Royals.

...It's here! Opening day (well really opening night) for Major League Baseball. Even though I won't be able to watch the Yankees live until Wednesday, I am going to be watching as much baseball as I can this week. :stickman:

...I am up in the air right now about buying the MLB Extra Innings package. The good thing about it is that I can see a lot of games but the reality of it is that I only tune into YES.

...Count me in for someone who is happy that Carl Pavano is pitching tomorrow for the Yanks. We need him because he does have a good right arm.

...Each year at this time I try to think of something nice to say about the Red Sox because of the start of another season. Right now I can't think of anything.

...Every once in awhile I play non-sports games. I just got this game from a website called Big Fish Games and this game is called Abra Academy. You have to go around looking for hidden objects in a picture. It's a good looking game as you can see by that screenshot.

...Today's April Fools Day, which immediately makes me think of Alfonso Soriano, the clown prince of laziness.

...If I have to beg you Mr. Fuzzone, I will. Please release Total Classics Phase 7. You and TeamFUZZ are the best.

...Forget it, I can't think of anything nice to say about the Red Sox. :wall:

...Oh, A-Rod? Knock the cover off the ball this year so you shut up those people who boo for no reason at all.

...Next week I may not be here for the Random Thoughts, so you guys just can handle it then without me. I might be going out of town for Easter, but it is not certain yet.

...One. More. Game.

...Penguins are in the playoffs. That means I can finally watch them this season. Can't wait to see how the kids do in that environment.

...and, of course, baseball is here. I'm still of the mind that the first game of the season should be a day game; but I'll take what I can get.

...and here's something nice you can say about the Red Sox Y4L:

they aren't the Dodgers.

O-P-E-N-I-N-G D-A-Y!!!!!!!!!

As Borat would say, "Verrryyyyy Niiicccceeeee!!!!!!!!"

I have to work until 9:00pm, so I will miss the first half an hour of the Mets and cards tonight. I will get home, open a beer and watch what will be the only National League game I see this season.

Tomorrow, the Jays play at 2:05pm AST. I will see the first hour, and then have to go to work. Blahhhh! Next year I am taking my vacation the first week of baseball season.

The New York Rangers are scaring me. I would love to see them make the playoffs, and not see them get bounced out of the first round. They are in 7th place, barely clinging to their playoff lives.

April.1! Thank goodness spring is here in full swing. Can't wait for summer. It was nice driving to work yesterday with the windows down, listening to the Jays and Reds on the radio.

Easter is next weekend. Damn that Bunny to hell.

See you all next week.
