Well, That Does It for This Year
October 29th, 2011 by slangon

Congratulations to the St. Louis Cardinals and all their fans on becoming the 2011 World Champions of Baseball. (Note to self: Next year, if the Rangers should make it to the World Series again, out of fairness to them and their fans, I SHOULD NOT ROOT FOR THEM. Even if their matched up against the […]

Did You Watch That World Seri — Hey Look, a Shiny Thing
October 20th, 2011 by slangon

I tried. I started watching the game last night and for the first few innings I was into it. Particularly the first inning, when there was a few very strange plays. In the top of the inning, Ian Kinsler was batting and slapped a grounder down the third base line that ended up for a […]

I Believe Some Congratulations are in Order
August 16th, 2011 by slangon

Yesterday around baseball a couple of significant milestones were reached. First off, Jim Thome joined the 600 Home Run Club, becoming just the 8th man in the history of the game to do so. Thome reached the milestone in his 8167th at-bat. Only one other player in history did it faster. That player was Babe […]

Good Luck, Frankie
July 13th, 2011 by slangon

Well, it’s official. Frankie Rodriguez and the specter of his $17 Million vesting option have moved on to the sunny environs of Wisconsin. Honestly, I’m at a little bit of a loss as to how to feel about this. On one hand, I was never a K-Rod hater as some Mets fans and local media […]

Happy Beer Drinking Day!
March 17th, 2011 by slangon

There was a line going out the door of McSorleys as I was coming it to work this morning. That can mean only one thing. St. Paddys Day is upon us. It’s time for the Second Annual Condition: Poor St. Patricks Day Parade of Cardboard. Have fun, everybody. Don’t drink too much green beer.

Days Until And

Congratulations to Joey Votto
November 23rd, 2010 by slangon

Yesterday it was announced that The Reds Joey Votto won the National League Most Valuable Player Award. Although I really didn’t have any vested interest in any of the leading candidates, I was pretty happy to see the young 1st baseman get the honors. I don’t have anything particular against Albert Pujols, but sometimes it’s […]

Heading Back to the House That the House That Ruth Built Built
October 18th, 2010 by slangon

It was a pretty exciting sports weekend at the SlangKo Corporate Headquarters. The Rangers beat the Yankees on Saturday after they should have beat them on Friday as well. The Giants beat the Phillies ace in Philadelphia, leaving Citizens Bank Park with the Series at 1-1 after facing the 2 Roys. The other Giants hung […]

Happy Opening Day
April 5th, 2010 by slangon

So it’s finally here. I guess technically yesterday was the season opener, but really who cares about the defending world champs playing against their bitter rivals at one of the oldest ballparks in the country. SNORE! Right now as I type this, we’re looking at roughly 3 hours until Johan Santana throws the first pitch […]

These Just Dropped into my Lap
April 2nd, 2010 by slangon

I mentioned earlier in the week that I made a couple of trades recently that knocked quite a few cards off of my wantlists. This particular one comes from Peter over at Dropped Third Strike. Amazingly, he was able to kill off all the remaining cards I needed for the 2010 Topps base set. Even […]
