Random Thoughts: Good Bye Cito

Blue Jays Leader Adieu

This week the Blue Jays end another frustrating season and they bid farewell to Cito Gaston as their Manager. I was a big baseball fan, but when the Montreal Expos left, my heart for the game left with it, but I do sometimes watch a Blue Jays game (and daydream of what might have been if Montreal had won the 1994 World Series). Ken Burns’ Tenth Inning is also on PBS this week, so it did really make me melancholy for my younger days walking to Jarry Park and watching Bob Bailey, Rusty Staub and the rest of my heroes play ball. Baseball is a boys game, played by men, but it’s also a business now (a very SLOW played business).

A True Expo!

This week I wrote about Johnny Cash and his One Piece at a Time concept of Personal Finance, Not Making the Same Mistake Twice, asked What is in a Word, and pointed out that The Answer is Always No Unless You Ask. I also added a video about Social Networking that while a little off topic, was interesting.

In the blogosphere there was no limit to the interesting posts (not many about baseball sadly):

Twitter feed where I re-tweet many great articles by some of my featured writers (and make the occasional odd or off colour commentary on life (in 140 characters or less)). I am also on Digg as Big Cajun Man as well.

Also remember my RSS feed is available too, for those who enjoy reading without looking at my archaic page lay out, and I have added an RSS Comment Feed as well.

    Thanks for the mention BCM. Too bad about Cito. I guess we’ll have to wait another 10 years for him…

    Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for the mention. Nice to see that the Jays won at home for Cito’s last game (nice to beat the Yankees too).

    Have a great weekend!

    I love Cito and I’ll really miss his steady hand. I thought the Jays’ season went relatively well considering the poor expectations in April. If they can continue to lead the majors in HRs next season, get some consistent pitching, and have Lind and Hill contribute again, they’ll do much better in 2011.

    Thanks for including my water heater saga today and have a great weekend! 🙂
