Stay On Target

The Super Bowl serves as an excellent signpost for the “we’re almost there” point of the MLB offseason.  Once the big game is over, I know it’s only a matter of days before pitchers and catchers report to spring training and some real baseball action presents itself.  This is a good thing, particularly this year, because I am running out of episodes of Glee (don’t judge) and Breaking Bad to watch, and the Bulls don’t play every single day.

I wish they did!

In fact, this year, the NBA has done a fine job of keeping my attention.  After a 10 year hiatus, all it took for me to care about the league again was a universal villain in the Miami Scheme Team paired with a plethora of explosive, young talent (Derrick Rose, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, etc.).  It still doesn’t compare to the sensational grind of 162, but the kind of drama that creeps out of this modern NBA is as close to the old World Wrestling Federation as one can find in any legitimate league.

And, of course, there’s always this:

I know it’s Hydrox cookies in place of Oreos, but until the Oreo season gets started again, the Hyrdox highlights are taming my appetite for excitement.

Peace,

I was always a Hydrox person over Oreos!!!! Both the cookie and the cream parts are way better.

As an adult, I agree, Jane, but since Oreos are sweeter, as a kid I wouldn’t even look at Hydrox. I didn’t know until recently that Oreo stole the Hydrox recipe/model… and the rest is history.

Just wasting time until baseball season…
Um. I don’t know what a Hydrox is.

Oh boy, Too Soxy. I think I may have dated myself.

the end of super bowl means the tast of baseball is getting so close

HOT DOG, J-DUB! Title Number 12 in 2012!

We still don’t watch much NBA, but the kids and I watched the Harlem Globetrotters last week! Now THAT’S entertainment. As far as TV goes, I can’t wait until Feb. 19 when the great Kenny Powers makes his return to the mound…that should saitsfy me for a bit until the real baseball starts!!!!
