Anyway, after the extra late night, there is ZERO chance of me posting that interview, BUT I did want to thank everyone for their comments! I was super psyched when my Mom told me she had a file of clippings of some of my stories when I was reporting on the Orioles. My Mom rules and I wasn’t really surprised that she saved them, but I was surprised to see them period. It was a neat blast from the past of O’s history, too. I hadn’t thought much about guys like Matt Riley, Luis Matos, Larry Bigbie, Ntema Ndungidi, Rick Elder, Ivanon Coffie or John Parrish lately… Anyway, I will do my best to get it all typed up proper soon.
I SHOULD sign off cuz I need to be at work in about 4 hours AND I am working a double tomorrow, BUT I wanted to show off one more thing… This came from my LCS. Its location has become more ideal of late. Its less than 2 miles from my school and right next to my favorite local coffee shop, The Greatest Coffee. This means I have been stopping in to my LCS at least 3 times a week and every time I stop in it seems like he has something new and awesome. This item falls into the first category, not sure if it falls into the latter.
When I walked in this afternoon the owner said “What would you say if I could guarantee you a jersey in a $3.00 pack?” I quickly handed him $3.00 and he started laughing hysterically, more like maniacally… It turns out he wasn’t talking about a pack of “cards” but it was a jersey. Well, maybe a sweater. Here is a pic of the pack and here is what was folded up inside of it. I believe this is a Calgary Flames jersey. He didn’t have a Lightning sweater and I don’t think the Hartford Whalers were represented, so I just picked one at random. If anyone (and I mean you Captain Canuck) is interested in these little shirts, please let me know your team preference and I will grab ‘em next week… Okay, that’s all for now. Thanks again! I will be posting tomorrow night, starting around 8:00 PM, so I hope to see y’all then! Off to bed. Go Rays! Troll out.
