This thread took a really weird turn, but I'm loving every bit of it.

Johnny's English is still pretty rough, but that was a cool interview.
I couldn't imagine being thrown into a foreign land, not knowing the language and also having to work my way into the highest level of that country's professional sports pastime.

Watching the game highlights, Reds fans screwed up by not knocking into Schumaker's glove on Rizzo's HR. We could have gotten an out from it going by the rule that took away Santiago's HR.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

As it were, that ball was coming right at us off the bat and the wind took it toward LF just enough, so my main objective was to protect my wife as to not show up on Sportscenter as the loser that let his gal get whacked while he cowered in fear of a hit baseball.
