Little late night blog action coming at ya because that’s just how I roll after a game like this. My Orioles get the walk off win against the NL leading Nationals. I just flat out love this team. From top to bottom. From Seth Smith proving his worth every time he sneaks in the line up to old man JJ Hardy laying down clutch hits to weird ass Mark Trumbo finally flicking the stick when it matters. I EVEN love Ubaldo, thanks in part to his performance tonight. Only 5 hits and 2 walks despite 29 batters faced from him? 6 strike outs? Ya fuckin kiddin me? I’m choosing to blame Adam Lind’s 3 run home run on Buck, Ubaldo was indeed dealing but you gotta pull him at that point. Oh well. Let it sink in that Ubaldo Jimenez struck out Bryce Harper tonight. Just let it seep on in like a nice spicy Spanish marinade.
There aren’t enough good things to say about a team that can get owned by Scherzer all night long (understandably) and still keep their heads in the game to rally in the 8th and 9th, and eventually deep into the 12th. Hard to not be overly excited that these guys could beat the projections yet again. When you’re beating teams like the Nationals with our rotation, your brain starts seeing pennants and trophies and you gotta slap yourself around a bit and remember its just May. Or maybe that’s just me. For now I’m just enjoying the show.
PS: How bout Caleb Fuckin Joseph this series eh?
9:11PM 5/9/2017 — Needed to do a quick rant here. WordPress is absolute trash. This site makes no sense whatsoever. The front page of the site said that about 27% of the internet uses WordPress? I’m calling bullshit. Let’s see some proof. This site is so clunky. I have no clue how to just view my page. I’ve got some weird purple star circle thing as my logo now? I have no clue what that is or why it is there. I have no clue how to get this page to look how I want it! All of the themes look like cliche websites for marketing / advertising majors who are trying to get hired in NYC. Just needed to vent about this. Gonna post this blog I guess but who knows if it will even show up.
Here it is, folks. The main event. The “ManCave Manifesto”. This name might suck ass, I’m not sure yet. This will be my recurring blog where I curl up on the luxurious couch that resides in my parent’s basement and blog my sack off about whatever pressing issue that might pop in my mind. I’d like to use this first Manifesto to lay a foundation for what KEEP IT PG will be. To set the vibe so to speak. Kinda like the first time you hang out with a girl and you try super hard and look presentable and smell nice and pay. Gotta make that VERY good first impression so that the second impression can kinda suck but it’s still okay. So, with that said, I’ll open by saying my ass is severely chapped by all things Chicago Cubs over the past 48 hours. Allow me to explain.
First of all, you’ll come to learn that I HATE the Yankees. I’m a big Orioles fan so it just comes with the territory. Despise that team. So when Sunday Night Baseball rolls around, of course I bet the Cubs and root hard against the Yankees. I wasn’t just being a hater, I legitimately thought it was a good bet. Big believer that the Yankees will regress eventually. Whatever. To make a long story short, I suffer through 18 innings of horrendous ESPN commentary (#FireMendoza #FireBoone) just for the Yanks to pull it off right in my stupid face. Even after Chapman practically hands the Cubs the game by loading the bases in the 9th and then hitting Rizzo with a 100mph missile right to the wrist. What a nightmare.
So like a true degenerate, I see an opportunity emerge from this loss. I realize that there will be HUGE value in fading the Cubs the next day because, well, because they just played 18 innings. Duh. Concrete logi. My bet – Colorado Rockies ML vs Chicago Cubs. This was a no brainer. Like I said, 18 innings on Sunday night baseball, lost, got beat up, and then have to travel to Colorado (altitude – ever heard of it?) to play the Rockies who are high key very good? Uhh yeah I’m gonna smash dat ML. Arrieta was on the bump for the Cubs so Chicago was still the favorite. I loved the line. I loved this bet. I had found a diamond in the rough. I KNEW the Cubs would get smacked around. Rizzo just got drilled! Javy was hurting! I KNEW Arrieta would stink out loud. He has been so suspect this season. Must be off the juice. Anyway, gametime comes on Monday and it gets postponed to today due to a HAIL STORM in MAY in Colorado. What the actual fuck. I figure, “Damn, now they’re gonna play this game Tuesday. The Cubs will be rested by then and my logic becomes invalid” so I don’t bet it today. What do you know, Arrieta gets rocked out of this world and Rockies win 10-4. Nice.
What’s up and welcome to the show. KEEP IT PG is a blog I’m starting, not because I want to, but because I need to. I’m an average dude who lives an average life with an above average desire to get my thoughts in writing. This will be my attempt at a comedy site. A sports blog. A meme haven. A gambling den. A viral video dump. A fantasy sports forum. Whatever it is to me, might not be what it is for you. Dont overthink it. Dont be offended. Buy a ticket, take the ride. enjoy.
BREAKING — I’ve had a blog for 13 minutes and already fucked it up. Posted a little blog giving my shpeal just to find out that this was the post I was supposed to edit as my “first blog” and it’s got this bogus fucking picture that I can’t figure out how to get rid of. This site blows thus far. Get it together wordpress. Guess I’ll just pound sand.
