Over the last few weeks our wonderful internet provider has failed to provide us with service at my home. It’s been very frustrating for me and my wife. Thankfully, we were both able to check our emails at work, but I wasn’t able to do much else. Unfortunately, the company we are using is the only high speed option we have considering where we live. I have considered trying out satellite internet, but it’s $300 to install and $60 a month. That’s a little more than I am willing to pay.
Anyway, I have been able to watch a few of the WBC games. I think the USA team looks great. Their attitude is awesome. It’s gotta be Mark DeRosa rubbing off on everyone. He’s a gamer and always seems to have fun when he’s playing. It doesn’t hurt having Jeter, Pedroia and Youkilis either. Those guys are all battle tested. Rollins, Wright, Victorino and the list goes on. It’s great. I still wish the WBC was in November though. I don’t like it during spring training.
I had a Ranall Simon sighting last night as I was watching the Netherlands play Puerto Rico. Man, he’s gotten huge. I still appreciate what he did for the Cubs in 2003. Too bad the Netherlands lost though. I would have liked to see him play some more.
Now that I am back online I look forward to writing some posts about my beloved Cubs. It’s going to be a great year!
