  1. You can blame the Miami game on me pc. For the last two years they have been "that team" for me. I can't seem to guess them properly...long way to go on this one though!
  2. Craziness in the early going.
  3. Some basics: Nine innings in a regular game - no ties in baseball Games are not timed, they go on for as long as it takes for a team to have more runs than the opponent Nine players are in the field on defense Visiting team bats first A run is scored when a batter touches all of the bases including home plate The batting team keeps going until there are three outs If the home team has the lead after the visiting team reaches three outs in the ninth inning the game is over If you digest that, I can give you more if you are interested.....and there is a lot more.
  4. Marlam, if you don't mind sharing, what brand and or model camera do you use? My camera went bouncing down a set of cement stairs like a Slinky. I would like to buy a new one without going too crazy on the price. I'd like one that is good for taking photos at concerts - cell phones take horrible photos under the bright lights of a show. But it also has to be a model that is allowed into a concert venue. I've got a few photos taken with my cell phone that I'd like to share. Somehow I was able to get a doe to pose for me :-).
  5. Much talent on display here.

  9. So sorry I can only choose tonight's game. I will try to get the remaining games in tomorrow. New Orleans
  10. I missed his recent US tour. He does put on a hell of a show, I'm happy you were able to see it. Maybe he'll come back around in 2016.
  11. I too watched "Sonic Highways" - pretty good. Last weekend I saw "20,000 Days on Earth" in the theater. Here's a quick synopsis: Drama and reality combine in a fictitious 24 hours in the life of musician and international cultural icon Nick Cave. With startlingly frank insights and an intimate portrayal of the artistic process, the film examines what makes us who we are, and celebrates the transformative power of the creative spirit. I did not know much about Nick Cave before seeing the film, may have given a quick listen - a recommendation from our Strider. I am now a fan, been

  16. Hi E! Understood, leave it at that. Happy Season everyone.
  17. Anyone besides Strider and me who have favorite teams playing tonight?
  18. It was, thanks! How are you and your family? Hope things are getting better and better. The concert - It was a gorgeous night, Jack and his band played for about 2 1/2 hours. The stage was set on top of the bullpens at Fenway Park, the audience was seated in the bleachers. I thought they sounded great, he has a wonderful band. High energy, very entertaining.
  19. Good luck to you guys - and gal ebk - who have teams to support in the post season!

  22. Elton was one of my favorites growing up too. After not seeing him live since the early 90s, I went to a show last year, not expecting to love it. I was proven wrong. He was fantastic. He signed autographs during the "encore pause" at the show I went to as well. I've talked about it a lot - I had never seen it done and was impressed. Maybe EJ is not such a diva after all!
