DLD 5/11/2010: In other news, I saw a perfect game less than 48 hours ago!


And I can't stop talking about it!

And neither can a variety of other people including John Donaldson who was the A's second baseman during the Catfish perfecto and who says "I liked to fell out when I saw that on ESPN,"  and many residents of Stockton who have a very personal connection with the game, such as the Braden protege who says "Someone who just made major-league history was there, kickin' it in my living room," and even our own trusty and well-beloved Billy Beane who says "He's got a lot of Wolverine in him."  -- I'm not entirely sure that's a good thing, but whatever.





And in other news: more on the theme of Chavy at his back always hearing time's winged chariot drawing near (did I get that right? it's from memory); and in my ever-popular "comparative news in Oakland and Minnesota" department: we have seagulls, but Target Field has falcons; we hate the slegnA, but the Twins hate the White Sox; and Dallas has a feisty grandma, but a 65-year-old woman in Saint Paul hit a purse snatcher upside the head with her cane.    (This sort of thing  doesn't happen a lot in the Twin Cities; if you're going there to see the A's in August or September, don't worry.)

 

I'm late for a meeting, so dump away!
