So Many Things to Remember

I was doing a good job keeping the foul count for each team...one team had 9 and the other team had 8, when I saw a player with a string in her hair, and that distracted me a little, cause I couldn't tell if it was a band, or just string..then a player was in the lane for 1....2...and I lost track of the foul count...so one team had 3 seconds, and the other team had 8 fouls, was it? Then we had a held ball and I tried to remember which team had the arrow, but I did remember one team had 9 fouls... , then I glanced at the clock, it it ran down more than a second, and for a split second I had definite knowledge, it was either an 8 or a 9..maybe a 3...

In my pregame now, I mention I have short term memory loss..

If you want to master memory loss, try being a Cubs fan.

You know, I'm a life-long Cubs fan I get tired of people making fun of....what was I saying? I forgot. I'm going to go have another Old Style.

At least Cubs fans know it's over by the end of July..Astros fans had to endure slow torture with bamboo shoots under the fingernails.

Roger Clemens got the franchise for that particular concession stand when he signed with the 'Stros, didn't he? Kinda like a signing bonus?

If so, you can stop by the Yankee clubhouse for your dose...

Well, it's pretty much a given that there ain't anyone on the Cubbies taking performance-enhancing drugs. And if there are, they should get their money back.

Sigh...no kidding.

I think they ordered them off one of those internet sites, like, www.joe's drug shack.com, or www.'Roids 'R Us.com.

I wish they would've stuck to the legitimate sites, like www.barrybonds.com.

Here in Portland, we refer to a drug ring as the Blazer team huddle.
