So the Brewers are almost 30 games into the season and I haven’t been able to catch one at the park. I live about an hour and half away from Milwaukee, but kids, no time, a new house and yeah a new house is surely keeping me from getting down to one. Well at least I’m catching them on TV. As I stated in a previous post, there is absolutely nothing like taking in games live. Perhaps I only need one game to wet my whistle and then I’ll be good.
Any way, how ’bout them Brewers? There are so many good things to talk about. Pieces of the puzzle are falling into place. It takes so many hitters to get hot, they might as well sit the first couple weeks of the season out. Like clockwork, each hitter in the Brewer lineup is coming around. Hardy is hot now, hopefully he can pick up the rest of the guys who have fizzled. The most important thing IMO, has been the middle relief. Probably the most underrated part of the game ever has been carrying the Brewers thus far. I say underrated because if you look at any middle relievers in history I can’t name a stud. I can’t think of a player’s baseball card that is worth over a 25 cents!
Upcoming games, Reds for two and Cubs for three at home. Let’s hope they stay strong and take 2 of 3 from the Chubs this weekend.
Speaking of baseball cards, since I’ve been 8, I’ve been a fan of them. I’ve collected for a few years and stopped once I decided to spend my money on booze. That was about twelve years ago though. Since I’ve moved boxes in the house I’ve found my baseball cards again and I’m curious to see what my cards might be worth. Something, I’ll probably save for a rainy day.
As for the “new” baseball cards, have a look:
“The cards, called Topps 3-D Live, are built with technology created by augmented reality company Total Immersion. All you have to do is download an ActiveX control from the Toppstown.com
Web site. Once it’s installed, you simply click on the appropriate
player, hold your card up to any webcam, and the player will appear to
pop up in 3-D on your monitor’s image.”
Alright, this is crazy! I think I need to check this out. My mind is going in the gutter real quick on with this one.
