A talking post?

Filed under: Random Stuff — Scott @

This post is really a test post, I am testing NaturallySpeaking from Dragon Software it is dictation software that may or may not be working. I am watching the words delayed by about anywhere from 1 to 5 seconds as I speak them, but the accuracy seems to be pretty good.
I will talk a little bit about the Royal who won again today to go to 2-1 on the season and it had three excellent, outstanding even, starting pitching performances. Gil Meche on opening day perhaps the best of the three – the one not get the win as Kyle Farnsworth was a disaster and gave up the game-winning home run. Zach Greinke very impressive, got to the bullpen and went with Jose Cruz to Soria and today in the rubber match of the series Kyle Davies picked up right where he left of in the regular season so outstanding pitching winning 2, dropping 1. But they left way too many runners on base and its little scary. Still, 2-1 and coming back for the home opener and maybe Sydney Ponson can prove me wrong and beat the Yankees.
So thank you for letting me do one post here while I talk into my microphone instead of typing. Continue Reading

But….are kidding me?

One of the arguments is that the division is really weak. Since when? Exactly a year ago this time the AL Central was considered the best division in baseball. Now, just a year later it’s winnable by the Royals??? Wow – that’s a stretch. Continue Reading

Firing your Secretary

Another great e-mail that you have to love, even if you see it coming in the end.

Last week was my birthday
and I didn’t feel very well
waking up on that morning.

I went downstairs for breakfast
hoping my wife would be pleasant and say,
“Happy Birthday!”,
and possibly have a small present for me.

As it turned out,
she barely said good morning,
let alone
” Happy Birthday.”

I thought…

Well, that’s marriage for you,
but the kids…
They will remember. Continue Reading
