Blogging From Indy, But the Song Remains the Same
Greetings from the Baseball Winter Meetings in Indianapolis — a thoroughly exhausting, sometimes exhilarating festival of national pastime activity. A recap of Day One can be read HERE, and there will be more to come over the remainder of the week.
I had a plan when it came to blogging from the meetings, and it was a good one — to take a lot of pictures and then post them. But I was thwarted in these plans, this time by my inability to bring a cord that connects from my camera to the computer.
So these pictures, they will have to wait. Instead, I’ll have to revert to my usual antics and simply blog about whatever I happen to have scrawled on my notepad.
Such as the Carolina-California League All-Star Logo, which was unveiled last week. This year’s game is taking place in Myrtle Beach, hence the beachy-theme:
A great logo, to be sure. But still secondary to the Texas League’s masterpiece.
Moving on, I would like to mention the fact that the Bowie Baysox are currently staging “Louie’s Winter Warm-Up Coloring Contest.” I am mentioning this only because last year’s Thanksgiving-themed contest yielded this brilliant piece of American adolescent folk art:
Finally, I recently received an impressive cache of Minor League mascot photos from Sue, the woman behind the blog “Rants, Raves, and Random Thoughts.” I will do a post on these when I get the chance, but there is one that needs to be shared immediately. It is a backside view of “Rasta Fish”, who attended a Clearwater Threshers game in order to join in the birthday celebrations of team mascot Phinley.
And with that, I’m going to call it a blogging day.
