Around the Horn: Favorite Player...

Favorite player...oh, this is gonna be hard one cuz if I had to choose, my favorite player actually doesn't play for the Brewers anymore.

Corey Hart.  He's actually the one that got me into baseball & not because of his looks or his athletic ability - it was all because of his name & a certain song from the 80's:

I would always say:  "ah, Corey Hart...does he too wear his sunglasses at night?"  He was my man.  I had many of the t-shirts with his name on the back.  I voted non-stop for him during his run at the All-Star Game.  I was a fan!  Then...then, he left the Brewers & me for the Mariners & then off to the Pirates.  So, the good thing with the Pirates, the Brewers play them a lot so I'll see him again.  Awhoo hoo!

Now, if I had to choose my favorite player from my favorite team, I would probably go with Scooter Gennett & again, not because of his looks or ability but because of his name.

Okay, maybe he's a little cutie.  :)  

The Brewers' team has changed so much that it's hard to pick a favorite cuz they'll be traded off before you know it.  The only one that we can keep around is the lying druggie:

Ryan Braun sat behind this podium & broke my heart.  I stood behind him the first time there was steroids talk but then he did it again.  He lost me as a fan.  I'm not even kidding.  I took down his things I had hanging on the wall, I gave all my Braun shirts to Goodwill, he broke my heart & I don't know if it'll be a break that will ever be mended, he can try but I do know that I'll never buy another Braun item again.

Good Lord, get me talking about baseball & look at me go.  Again, Jessa & Kasey, I love this link-up!  :) 


  1. OKAY Scooter, I would be his fan based on his name too. for sure. but bummer about Braun man. I hate when they can't just be adults about things. "sorry guys I made a mistake" it's not that hard.

    1. You can cheer for Scooter, I'll letcha. Ha, ha! :)

  2. I feel your pain on both counts: my favorite player was traded away several years ago, and I went to the same school as Ryan Braun (AND we're both Jewish!) so that was a huge betrayal. I totally approve of Scooter, though! Great name + adorable = totally winner. :)

    1. You went to the same school as Braun, you've gone to a pretty popular school as I know that he isn't the only "famous person" to come from there.

      If you would like to cheer for Scooter with me, that would be great! Ha!

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/orApril.

My five this week are five of my latest funnies pinned on Pinterest.  Lately, work has been a lil difficult & I need something to make me smile on this Friday morning.  So, here we go:

So, are there any posts that have been giving you a giggle lately?  If so, please share.
Have a great weekend, yall!
