    Suggestion received. I'll let ya know how it tastes if nothing better comes to mind... or to mouth.

    I was trying to think, um, more metaphorically.

    Anyway, I see there's guides to thinking added to the top. Hold on while catch up...

    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    Bonofacio batting leadoff and playing CF for the Cubs... 3-4 with a stolen base.

    I'm just sayin... For no particular reason.

    Great shout ChiTown. Just cracked open a bottle of Grolsch. Although it is currently 8.30pm where I am, so kind of acceptable.

    Also watching the Cubs Pirates game, Liriano was excellent until the 6th. Painful to watch if Nolasco doesn't pitch well today.

    I wore #3 when I was in high school. I want to get a customized Twins jersey with my name on it, but I think it would be disrespectful to use the #3 on a Twins jersey with my name on it so I'll have to pick a different number.

    Only "Killebrew", belongs on a Twins' #3 jersey

    Glad to know it's 8:30 somewhere in the world! That's all I need to know.

    Hmm ... England somewhere? Ireland? Scotland? Or maybe you haven't 'sprung forward' yet.
