To borrow a famous line from John Fogerty, "Put me in coach. I'm ready to play."
Finally! But like I said. "I'm Back."
And I'm ready to play, blog, write. Even work. Yeeehaaaa!
But now back to baseball:
Yes, I'm a Rebel. And, yes, I'm a Braves fan. I mean, I am an Atlanta girl and I grew up with Ted Turner. 24/7.
But HEY! What up with getting whupped by San Francisco, boys? Fer cryin out loud!
For the record? I still love ya man.
In spite of being a Rebel, I've got lots of Yankee blood in my veins. My grandfather's nickname was Yank and my dad was little Yank. Then my mama was a Yankee, too.
So, it's no wonder that I loves me some Yankee baseball. Those dudes are always smokin'. Till they got smoked by some Texas sluggers.
Us Rebels know about smokin'. You know, Boston butts and all. No not Sox butts. Pig butts.
Slow smoke one of those little pig puppies and you've got yourself the best pulled pork fixin's in the world. Just don't mess it up with that sweet sweet sauce. Use something spicy vinegary with just a little sweet to tone it down.
Mmmm. Now that's some good World Series eatin'.
Go get 'em, Rebels. Umm Rangers. Show my Californians how we slug 'em in Texas.
This is dedicated to all my friends, family and followers, baseball fans or no. The video is a classic, set to one of my favorite baseball songs, "Centerfield" by John Fogerty. Turn it up. :D
Time to go smoke a butt, That Rebel, Olivia
P.S. If you weren't grinning or in tears or both after watching this video, you MUST watch it agin. Just sayin'. And turn it UP!
