    Re: Off days suck

    I'm painting some doors upstairs and my wife asked if I was going to paint them tonight. Then she remembered we watch a number of TV shows on Thursday and I said, "the Reds are playing tomorrow night, so I'll listen to the game while I paint." 'Nuff said.

    Back to your situation - she's a keeper if she understands off-days.

    You married a cardinals fan?

    Son, that ain't right.

    I'm standing on my patio grilling burgers and sipping a cold one.

    Nice evening. Daffodils are in full bloom.

    I'm going to watch the Giants game myself, lots of baseball out there on off days. It's the AS game that kills me

    Interesting series coming up this weekend against Tampa Bay. Hopefully the Reds can take at least 2 of 3 before that team from Pittsburgh strolls into town next week.
