Blogged Down in Seattle

Well that sure sucked. Texas blanks Seattle 4-0 on the first day of the big celebration for the 2001 116 win team. The Mariners have not scored a run in 26 innings and are on a six game slide that feels like it will never end. I was not going to write tonight as I am tired of ranting about various negative aspects of this franchise but I figured I better say something lest I completely Blog Down and cease to exist as an unpaid semi-journalist ie Blogger. I’m sure better men than me have reached the same point on the blogosphere and just quit the whole deal leaving another URL to float around the web with old posts that mean nothing to anyone¬†anymore.


I just wish it was winter already (or is it?) and I could be getting my hopes up again for my annual¬†Spring Training trip. But no we have lots of baseball left to play and it seems to get worse every night. I have begun to gaze over at the NL Central standings lately to keep an eye on the Pirates and Brewers trying to figure out how I could remake this blog into some sort of random small-market blog and poach some readers from those two exciting teams. Then of course there is the Tacoma Rainiers just down the road and the nifty new stadium that I haven’t seen yet hmmmm……..Or of course I could somehow find the courage to head down to the Safe Saturday night to see if I can stomach the hoopla around the 2011 season and maybe catch a peak of some of the old warriors that the PR hacks flew in to town to try and make us forget the current state of affairs in Mariners Nation……I think I’ll decide in the morning……..Go M’s! and Pirates!

      Geez you know it is bad when even the commentors have no comment…..Will the last true believer make sure Rick the Peanut Man gets a proper retirement party?

    Hang in there, Jeff. You made it through last year, you can do it again, right? At least there is still a slim possibility of your prediction of a third place finish to come true.
