SOME CANCER, MLB, POP CULTURE

I fell asleep to “Meg Myers” the album “Sorry”

I exercised to “Into Eternity” all albums on shuffle. First song I heard today! Great way to start my day.

Yep, that’s 2 days in a row that I’ve exceeded my exercise total. The crunches will stay at 1500 a day. The leg lifts could possibly increase from 120 a day. The squats & push ups will go up eventually. I don’t flip a switch & say to myself “OK, today you’re going to do 100 extra of this” I just see how I feel that day and usually add 10 extra if I have enough energy to achieve that. I go all out for at least 2 hours, then I come in this room & write a blog post. I do kind of like exercising, I feel a bit better after a good workout. “There’s always someone doing better than me.” That’s my mantra everyday. I’m not trying to “…I don’t wanna brag, I don’t wanna boast…” about it. I’m trying to stay humble about it & report on what I’m doing. I know that a TON of people don’t have the time to do what I’m doing, so no I’m in no way judging anyone.

The MLB has added some new rules that they’re going to have to adjust or get rid of. Video replay. They want to speed the game up to attract more fans. I like the idea of speeding the game up & video replay. Why do they let a coach talk to a person on the phone to determine if the field manager want’s the play reviewed by an umpire in New York? Within 10 seconds make a decision to either have it reviewed or not, & no phone call allowed for anyone in the dugout. When the umpires review the play, how about just have the umpires that are actually working the game on the field review it within 90 seconds & not 5 minutes.

They’ve recently added a rule at 2nd base. You’re no longer allowed to slide past the base to break up a double play, it might hurt someone, especially if you touch them Then the runner at 2nd is out as is the runner on his way to first base. REALLY? OK, don’t slide in with your cleats up then. Slide in normally & you might touch the SS or 2nd baseman? Don’t slide beyond the base, you don’t need to. If you’re sliding into 2nd base you’re going to touch someone. Don’t tackle them or knock the wind out of them, slide normally that could break up the double play. Don’t do this…

There’s another stupid rule at home plate. Now a back catcher can’t bloke the plate unless the ball is there before the runner arrives at the plate, to avoid collisions. This is why the rule was changed, a big name back catcher got hurt. REALLY? The game’s been played that way for 100 years, now you want to change it? How about changing it so that the runner has to slide & the catcher can decide if they want to block the plate or not?

You turn you’re phone off at a movie theater. Why not at a live show or concert? I completely agree with this, take you’re phone back to your vehicle or give it to a parent if you can’t drive.

Here’s a concert that I was at & I ended up watching 50% of the show through a stranger’s cell phone. WHY? We were handed cell phones before many people learned proper cell phone etiquette. No I don’t own or want a cell phone. I’m OK with other people having them though, please check with people around you at a public venue before you begin using your phone for whatever reason?

I saw a different show with an older audience. The 2 people in front of me asked if they could take a photo and later on a short video. That’s fine with me. I don’t dislike cell phones. I just think that some people need to learn when it’s OK & not OK to use them.

Taylor Swift will be writing a song in the near future!
