The One Where We Play A Game from Sporcle and then PLAY OUR FIRST SPRING TRAINING GAME!

Okay, I swear this is not a sponsored post. I received nothing except an email from Sporcle, telling me that they created a game for me. I LOVE games! And I LOVE presents! Plus, I'm not working 80 hour work weeks anymore this month, so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm not going to lie; I probably played the game at least 20 times, until I got all of the correct answers. So apparently, I'm 10. And also maybe a little competitive.

If you'd like to Sporcle the 2012 Spring Training Oakland Athletics Roster, be my guest. Seriously, it's awesome. It's a scorecard, listing players numbers and their positions. All you have to do is type A's players into the box at the top (doesn't have to be in order) and it enters them into the correct slot. Good luck naming the 59 players in 6 minutes. Seriously, go play and report your score. And then play again until you get all of the players, and then realize that you can now do play-by-play for Spring Training games, (and spell the names correctly...as everyone knows, this is my Achilles heel), which start TODAY AT NOON! But really, if you want to know all the players you will be hearing about this month, check it out.

(By the way, if Sporcle is reading this, how much fun would it be to have another game using A's rosters of years' past? Say the 25-man roster of the '89 teams? Or 2000, 2001, 2002?)

I will see you back here in a few hours for our very first Spring Training game thread, at 12PM, West Coast time. A's vs. Mariners.
