Saturday==>There is no other way to express what yesterday was to your favorite Sunshine State blogger other than ... SENSORY OVERLOAD ... caused, of course, by watching four excellent baseball games. The first began at 12:30pm and the final out of the 4th game was around 1:00am.
I did take about an hour break in the early evening to do a brief walk and wander session. This, with my usual walking regime during the games resulted in recording==>5.13 miles, which ain’t bad, IMHO.
So ... we will begin this abbreviated posting ... abbreviated because today will be another sports day, college football and baseball ... with a brief summary of what went down in the baseball world ...
12:30pm==>ALDS - Rangers/Blue Jays, won by the Rangers 6-4 in 14-innings. The win put the Rangers up 2-0. The crucial third game will be on Sunday at 8:10pm. The Blue Jays are in a ton of trouble.
3:30pm==>ALDS - Astros/Royals, won by the Royals 5-4, to even the series 1-1. The next game will be on Sunday at 4:10pm.
6:30pm==>NLDS - Cubs/Cards, won by the Cards 4-0 on a stellar performance from starter John Lackey and the bullpen.
The next game is today at 5:30pm, carried on TBS. On the mound for the Cubs (0-1) will be Kyle Hendricks (8-7) vs, Jaimes Garcia (10-6) for the Cards (1-0).
9:30pm==>NLDS - Mets/Dodgers, won by the Mets 3-1 as the Mets Jacob deGrom and Dodgers Clayton Kershaw were in an AWESOME pitching duel.
The next game is tonight at 9:00pm, carried on TBS. On the mound for the Mets (1-0) will be Noah Syndergaard (9-7) vs Zack Greinke (19-3) for the Dodgers (0-1).
Yes, my loyal and faithful readers and followers these were four excellent games, particularly if you are an avid baseball fan like moi.
Moving on ...
My plans for today will be to remain in front of my 42” flat screen TV in my cool and comfortable Winter Park apartment watching sports ... college football and baseball ... all leading up to the highlight ... tada ...
Gators/Missouri at 7:30pm from Columbia, Missouri, carried on SECN.
This is Mizzou’s Homecoming game, making our chances for a win even tougher ... but ... Billi Pod’s gut tells him that his Gators will hang tough for the entire game, winning 24-17.
OK, we will close this out with something that all of you out there in the morass known as cyberspace need to read and understand ... drum roll ... read it all ... and don’t be prudish ... read it all ...You are to very welcum.
So ... now let’s just keep ...
Yesterday’s mileage==>5.13 miles (or, 11,214 steps)
Total mileage for 2015==>1,139.73 miles (average 4.04 miles per day)
