Baseball is a very exciting game full of very exciting events. I will break down and analyze what I think are the top ten most exciting parts in baseball. Before I get started I would like to point out that my list is based on things that could happen at any time. Unfortunately perfect games and no-hitters are not on my list, although they have their own excitement. Now lets get down to business.
One of my oldest and best friends came to me in a Facebook message and suggested that I write about the best piece of advice that I have ever received. I thought this was a very intriguing question and a lot of instances came to mind. Other than the advice to write this post, about three or four things came to mind when thinking about the best advice I have ever gotten.
Currently sitting in the basement waiting out the tornado warning that is going through Clay County. Roxie, our lovely lab shepherd mix, was a hassle to take to the basement. Knowing that she wouldn't come to the basement willingly, I resorted to putting her in her kennel and attempting to carry her down. Little did I know, she decided to thrash and wiggle while i carried it down two flights of stairs. I finally got her down, closed the doors and decided to let her roam the basement. All she did was sit by the stairs. After about twenty minutes, i had the urge to go check the weather. I didn't want to haul her back upstairs so I tried to coax her back into her kennel. No luck. So the next thing to do was to try to throw treats in the kennel to let make her follow. No luck. Eventually, after about five minutes and twenty treats, she reluctantly went into her kennel. Now we are both chilling here in the basement where it is eerily quiet. Cheers everyone!!
While watching the Boys in Blue play in Baltimore tonight, the crew at FS Kansas City put up a graphic about the Royals leading the majors in innings pitched by rookies. They had something like 110.2 innings pitched by rookies while the next team, Tampa Bay I believe, or Texas, had 98 innings. This comes as no surprise to me because it seems like every bullpen arm we have is a rookie.
I am going to follow the style of a favortie blogger of mine, Joe Posnanski, and make a list of topics to write about. Not only will this give my viewers, albeit only a few right now, a chance to see what is coming up and chime in with ideas, but it helps me to remember what I want to write about.
I have to admit, I enjoy reading people's comments about articles and news stories on the internet. I also like to read message boards (mostly KSU). I enjoy reading and hearing people's opinions about stuff that I am interested in. Two of the most common places I like to read these message boards at are theofficetally.com, a fan site for the television show "The Office", and the KSU scout.com website.
Well, this is my first blog post. I named my blog "Rounding the Bases" as a double entendre. It is meant to reflect my passion for baseball and to cover more than just sports in this blog. I am hoping I can provide a nice view on many things in society. As an avid Kansas City Royals fan, my entries most likely focus on this during the summer. I am also the biggest K-State fan around so there is a great possibility that many posts will be about that as well. Television and movies are also some of my interests. I hope I can make this blog grow and gain some readers! Thanks!
