Five Foto Friday: Roster moves from the week

Welcome to the 40-man roster, Lane Adams! High fives for you! I hope Christian Colon is at least this smiley upon his addition to the 40-man. Former Husker Michael Mariot is also on the Big roster now. Woot for him! Irving Falu was DFA’d and probably isn’t long for this organization. Surely someone will pick …

Frontline, and football.

I watched last night’s incredible PBS Frontline documentary, League of Denial, with keen interest. I have, erm, a special interest* in the suffering that can follow a person who’s had too many concussions. *the short version: I had too many concussions, and spent my early 20s in a daze, with no short-term memory, limited long-term …

Fun with anagrams and the Royals roster

Years ago, someone at Royals Review put together a hilarious list* of anagrams of the Royals’ 40-man roster, yielding such classics as “Lo, Danger Ox!” and “Crime Horse.”.

Your Anthony Seratelli Photo of the Day

If you follow me on Twitter, you might see me tweet a “Seratelli photo of the day” often. The team has been away, so it’s been a while, but today’s was an obvious choice – Seratelli drove in the winning run for Omaha in the 11th inning this afternoon. Here’s Johnny Giavotella greeting him on …

Manny Being…

So, so dumb. But I'm amused.

I can’t explain exactly why, but the idiot-simplicity of this sign made me chuckle. __________________________________________________________________________________ Please consider supporting my writing and photography by doing your Amazon shopping through my affiliate link. (Explanation here.)

Plays at the plate all over the place

Last night I saw something I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen before – three plays at the plate in one inning. Omaha scored on one of the, which is fortunate because it was all they would get for many innings.     BONUS PLAY: Check out this incredible shot that New Orleans broadcaster Tim Grubbs …
