It's almost midnight and I realize that I haven't blogged in forever. I'm also supposed to be working on something for work work, but I'm procrastinating.
I was at my soccer game earlier tonight and one of the girls on my team that lurks GLB told me how she found it depressing to be watching all of these young Padres lose during Spring Training. I said to her, "Buck up, kid! Ain't nobody won no trophy for Cactus League champs!" I think it cheered her up cause she was like, "Man, Dex. You're right!" Truth be told, maybe somebody does get a trophy for Cactus League. I'm pretty sure they don't, but I'm picturing a bronze cactus made of melted pennies.
I don't know if you guys follow the Gaslamp Ball Twitter feed, but you're missing out on some good time random thoughts. For instance, I had a thought today that the Padres should start some of their games at 4:20PM in the afternoon, to capitalize on fans who want to sit around for 3 hours and not think about anything. Have them on Thursdays and call them 4:20 Fursdays. Legalize it!
Also, I'm thinking that it would be fun to open up a second hand underwears store. Not the weird kind like in Japan, but something wholesome where people could sell their old underwears and other people who can't afford underwears could buy some stylish ones for cheap. That was on Twitter too. It only mildly related to Gaslamp Ball in that I figured I might use some of the Gaslamp Ball Office Petty Cash to rent space somewhere downtown.
Here's a baseball movie pitch that ended up on Twitter: The Devil and Roy Oswalt. Imagine like the Devil and Daniel Webster except with Roy Oswalt. Roy Oswalt makes a deal with the devil to become the greatest pitcher the game has ever seen, except for whatever reason, he just becomes Roy Oswalt. Then when the devil tries to cash in on Roy Oswalt's soul, Oswalt's like, "Dude, I was pretty good, but I weren't no best ever."
And then here's the twist at the end...
That's deep, right? The devil can do some crazy stuff, but he can't compete with the steroid era. There's like a whole moral thing that happened there.
Actually, have you guys heard about the Adrian Gonzalez Celebrity Bowling Bash? It's $220 to play and you get a celebrity on your team. I haven't talked to JBox about it yet, but I'm thinking that JBox and I should use some of the Gaslamp Ball Petty Cash that isn't getting used for a secondhand underwears store and maybe play in that thing. If you want to join, you have to pay your own way, but we could all play and anybody who's on our team would be getting a deal cause me and jbox might count as an extra celebrity between the two of us. We would make bowling jokes and whoever our "real" celebrity is would get all annoyed with us like, "Dude! I'm the celebrity here!"
Anyways, I better get back to work.
