I love it, Credo! Yes, indeed, Keats looks great in a ballcap. He'd look even better in an Astros cap and a Texans jersey...

oops, sorry. :oops: :wink: :lol:

I would say that he'd look better in a Seattle Mariners' jersey but I wouldn't want to associate Keats with failure :roll:

See, I'd like to think that Keats the baseball fan would put his support in a small-market team that still reaches to defy the capitalistic dominance of large-market teams (*cough*Yankees*cough*), like the Twins. :wink:

It's like cricket only about a billion times better. :P

Cricket is the most boring sport ever. :lol: :roll:

Exactly! :P So, imagine taking a cricket match and speeding up the action to condense it into about 2 1/2 to 3 hours of play rather than, say, 2 1/2 to 3 days, and you might have something more like baseball. :lol:

But really, a lot of people find baseball boring as well, since compared to most other sports, things do happen rather slowly: a lot of downtime with outbursts of frenzied activity here and there. But that's what I like about it. It's a friendly sport. You can go to a game, have a beer and a hotdog, chat with your friends, and still catch everything that's going on, and you sort of get the sense that the players Plus, it's an easy sport to understand, and one that pretty much anyone can play. In short, it's all that and a bag of chips. :wink:

Oh, puh-lease. . . A Twins cap and a Mauer jersey (leading the MLB in batting average) with Francisco Liriano on the mound (leading the MLB in ERA), thank you very much. :P :wink:

You're kidding, right, Credo?? Have you seen Andy Pettitte?? The Astros' other star pitcher?? I mean he's hot (Louisiana boy who's 6 foot 5!!) and a great athlete... :lol:

His career stats are amazing. Don't get jealous--the Twins can't have him. :P

No offense, but we don't need your pitchers. :P We've got some of the best in the majors as it is (Liriano leading in ERA, Santana leading in strikeouts, Nathan one of the best closers in the AL right now . . .). We're busting at the seams with awesome pitchers that other teams want to steal from us (and they'd better not!).

And I'll remind you that my Twinkies won their last series with your Astros. :wink:

But anyway, back to Keats sightings. . . the same blog, in another entry, described a pitching matchup as a "Keats vs. Shelley," as well as several other pairings throughout history and the arts.

CASSIUS
Did Cicero say any thing?

CASCA
Ay, he spoke Greek.

CASSIUS
To what effect?

CASCA
Nay, an I tell you that, Ill ne'er look you i' the
face again: but those that understood him smiled at
one another and shook their heads; but, for mine own
part, it was Greek to me.

:wink:

Sorry, we just love our baseball here--something oddly nostalgic and American about it simultaneously--there's always a rash of baseball movies, too...if you want to get the essence of it (not that anyone cares, but...)--watch "Field of Dreams" or "Bull Durham"--both with Kevin Costner--or, better yet, watch "The Sandlot." That's a great movie about how American kids learn to seamlessly weave baseball into their culture and upbringing. :wink:
