I'm Alive

I am alive and back at the helms of this blog.

After a nice vacation in the Land Down Under, where I didn't bother using the internet and checking up on things except for the odd peep at the NHL/NBA Playoffs and a few scores in MLB, I feel great!!! It was nice to leave behind all the technology and kind of go back to an "old fashioned" life. Honestly, I didn't really miss using my computer and staying in the loop of everything that happens in sports. Anyways, on to something more interesting for you readers.

You see that guy with the Jays logo on his chest? Well, I'm disgusted by him. Every time I look at him it makes me sick. Every fifth day he walks onto the mound and basically does his thing, I just hurl at the thought of him.

For all of you who know me, I love this guy. So let me explain all the above. I'm disgusted by him because he's just too good. It just isn't fair that someone is that good at something and everyone who steps into the batters box has almost no chance of succeeding. Every time I look at him I just think, how come I couldn't have 1% of his skill so I could have had a chance to move past my university baseball career. Guy is just gold! Finally, the hurling comment. Well, it was said for more effect than anything else.

Anyone watch the Yankees visit the Skydome (aka Roy's Home, Halladay Inn, etc.)? Some dude who jumped ship, AJ Burnett, was back on the mound and he was throwing against Halladay. For those of you who thought it was just another game you were wrong. We all know the Jays wanted to kick the shit out of AJ for taking the money and leaving in the offseason.

The final stat line.
Roy - 9IP, 1ER, 0BB, 5Ks, and 0 HRs.
AJ - 7.2IP, 5ER, 4BB, 3Ks, and 1HR.

I am absolutely speechless at this moment. Roy is just too good. He reminds me of little leagues where there is always one kid who strikes out 15 guys a game because he's just too good. Halladay is in a league all of his own right now and describing this situation as "he's in the zone" doesn't do justice.

Roy Halladay is a man among boys. He is absolutely amazing to watch. It's a priveledge and an honor to watch him pitch every 5 days.

Welcome back from the land down under.
