DLD 4/27/09 Rawr means you're old.

If you haven't done it yet, wish Marquez67 a belated happy birthday.  He's older than me, so I can make fun of him for being so old.

I'm sitting here, staring at my wall.  On it, I've got magnets of the 2009 season, Jason Kendall, Marco Scutaro, Mark Kotsay, Bobby Crosby, Eric Chavez and Justin Duchscherer, though upon further inspection, it may be a very bad omen to be on my wall.  I've also got the wall calendar with Staplehead staring down at me.  i've also got the picture of OAS before we built Mt. Doom.

I now have a JG poster that a certain someone sent me up there as well (ty, Lynn!).

Obviously, I'm insane in my fandom for the A's.  I'm not alone in that.  Most everyone here is just as nuts for the green and gold.  Listen, normal run-of-the-mill fans don't come to fan-based websites and start debates with people whom they have more in common with than their own family.

There's a lesson in there somewhere, I think.

 

Meanwhile, back at the farm...

 

I don't own this (but I bet one of you does), but I'd like to...A's hooptie!

I'm not positive (yes I am), but I think they're parked at BART, like a real fan does!

 

They may not be zombies (jury's still out on Crosby), but SuSlu thinks they may be vampires:

DAY TIME: Until Saturday, the A's had no reason to smile or give high-fives under the sun as they had not won during the day this season. They were one of only two teams to enter play 0-6 during the day, and their losing streak in day games was nine in a row dating back to last season. In those six day losses, the A's hit .162 with 16 runs, compared with .271 and 43 runs in nine night games.

Make my Buck the T-Buck,don't want my Buck stepped on.  Just saying.

 

Off Day today, travelling to Texas to visit our old friend, Wash.

 

Oh, and HANNAHAN!

 

Dump, AN monkeys, dump.
