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!

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

True frickin' dat!  The old phrase "think before you speak" comes to mind.  I know that sometimes emotions get the best of us & we don't think things through before we let words leave our lips.  Sometimes those words can be hurtful, embarrassing or lovable.  Lovable doesn't seem to be one that comes to mind, I'm sure, but I remember the first time that Goose told me that he loved me.  He didn't think it through & those three lil words came flying outta his mouth at a birthday party in an old friend's living room.  I could not believe it but those words were already out in the universe.

I doubt that Goose would change anything now but at the time, it scared him to say those words & he probably would have thought it through a little better but, in that case, I'm glad that he didn't.

However, I'm really trying to get the girls to think before they speak & I tell them that once words leave their lips, they may have it off thei…
