starting rotation for the lynx this year

the guy isn't even a mascot... he just pitches better in full furry gear.

Also, you should see the heater on the left guy. His age isn't the only thing in the high 90s

twelve years pass...

Man, I'd love to apply for this:

Having just retired, the timing's perfect. Of the nine duties and qualifications, though, I fulfill exactly one of them ("interest and enthusiasm for baseball"), leaving me at the back of the line with this guy. (Or behind--he's got the Yankees on his resumé.)

I think that's a better reference than my last principal would give me...

The HOF was pretty good. Not a lot to see--there are 5 or 6 rooms--but they've inducted 100+ people, a good mix of Canadians and relevant non-Canadians, and reading some of the bios was instructive. Merchandise is pricey; I did buy the card set of all the inductees for $50. Four baseball field surround the museum, and they were nice.

Best thing about the day was deciding that when I vacate the city--which I seriously plan to do within the next year or so--St. Mary's is at the top of my list now. The town is beautiful, the houses are 1/3-1/2 of what you pay in Toronto, and I think I'd be very happy there.

Happy retirement clem!

I have to admit that I didn't know where the Canadian Baseball HOF was ...

one year passes...

Wow--my post just above is where I decided to move to St. Mary's...No HOF class this year, and the induction of Olerud/Morneau/Ward/Doucet still on hold.

Now that I'm on the inside, out there pulling weeds, I'm going to lobby hard for Munenori.

St. Marys...St. Marys...I even have a T-shirt that says "St. Marys: Apostrophe-Free Since 1864."
