Random Thoughts: Wild Finishes

As a young lad, I enjoyed walking to Jarry Park to watch the Expos play baseball, and I even enjoyed watching baseball in the Olympic Stadium, but my love for baseball has really wained (due to the length of the games), however Wednesday night we saw two teams manage to Snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in a spectacular manner. This kind of unbelievable finish gives you hope that the Global economy may actually turn itself around, but that remains to be seen. Will I be watching the baseball playoffs? I think it will be much like you watch most baseball games: you turn on the game, watch the first inning, go out cut the grass, check out the 4th inning, read War and Peace from cover to cover, watch the 7th inning, count every grain of sand in the Sahara, and then catch the 9th inning.

Go Expos! Yes I know they don’t have a team (yet), but I can always dream (of Rusty Staub, Mack Jones, Bill Lee, the BUS Squad and Blue Monday)

OK! Blue Jays! Let’s, Play, ball… no seriously, this week I was all over the map in terms of content, but still some interesting stuff:

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

Have alook at my micro-blog on Twitter, where you can see a whole plethora of good articles and pithy comments by me as well. 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, on reddit, Tumblr and other Social Media sites (look for the BigCajunMan userid) as well.

If you have social media accounts, don’t forget to vote for my posts (see the nifty dashboard on the bottom of each article, where you can cast your votes). As they say in Quebec, vote early and vote often!

This site is iPhone Friendly (and Android , iPod Touch and iPad Friendly), enjoy it on the go, in a readable format for the device. If you are reading with an iPhone or Android device, drop me a comment and tell me if this needs any improvements. This site is also in the Kindle US Blog list, if you are interested, not available in Canada yet (because no Blogs are available in Canada on a Kindle?!?).
