Did tie up and show up, more or less, today.
Gave the guys a
tho it's not exactly hashtag-mood.
Realizing that baseball's about to have its opening day, and having gotten access to games in the sports package I had to buy from Comcast to keep DVRing TCM (and Noir Alley), I set up recording of all the Royals games, go get a peak at that team and see if I can muster some fandom, to have baseball to get into. They're young and fast and good at defense, and I like those things, plus have KC fondness. I also set up a recording of the Astros-Mariners opening, knowing susandennis is going to be watching. And Verlander's set to pitch, and I've liked him.
Then today I added the Orioles and the Tigers games. This'll be way too much baseball to watch all of, but I can look into those teams too, and maybe pick one. 60 games is such a short season.
The crowdlessness is strange, and makes it too quiet. Especially weird after a home run. KC still has the organ and the announcements and other riling-up-the-throng things, and a few cut-outs here & there (people have to donate to team-designated charities). Salvador Perez is back at catcher for KC, so that's something to anchor something on. And KC management declared it would pay all its minor-leaguers for the whole (cancelled) season, after which other teams caved, even if they'd earlier said they wouldn't pay for anything beyond May.
This last heat wave was a hard one for me. Tomorrow night it'll get into the lower 60°s F.
Today's subjects for pondering (all one subject, also): futility. Pointlessness, despair/hopelessness, meaninglessness. If you have a kid, there's always a point, right?
