ONE OF THE REGRET I HAVE IN LIFE IS NEVER LEARNING TO PLAY THE GUITAR. I TOOK SOME LESSONS, BUT DIDN'T TAKE IT TOO SERIOUS WHEN I WAS YOUNGER.  BASEBALL ALWAYS TOOK UP TOO MUCH TIME. NO REGRETS. IN COLLEGE IT WAS LIKE A FULL TIME JOB EXECPT TO WAS A BLAST. THE TRAVELING WITH TEAMMATE WAS GREAT.

I PLAY THE GUITAR VERY POORLY AND READ MUSIC VERY SLOWLY. I CAN BASICLLY PLAY LIVING AFTER MIDNIGHT AND BREAKING THE LAW VERY SLOPPILY.

I GET UPSET WITH MY SON SOMETIMES. I ALWAYS THOUGHT I'D PUSH HIM AT SPORTS. HE PLAYS AND I COACH BUT HE IS AVERAGE, WHICH IS FINE. HE DOESN'T HAVE THE GIFT THAT I HAD. WITH MUSIC THOUGH HE READS MUSCI BEAUTIFULLY. HE PLAYS THE GUITAR AND PIANO. PERFORMS IN SCHOOL WITH THE BAND AND SOLO, BUT HE HAS NO INTEREST IN IT. HE DOES IT BECAUSE HE HAS TO. HE JUST STARTED HIGH SCHOOL AND IT IS NO LONGER MANDITORY, AND HE HASN'T PLAYED SINCE JUNE. 

MY OTHER REGRET IS NEVER PLAYING ICE HOCKEY.

Point well taken, Scorp. I love baseball. Played all my life up until a few years ago. As an adult ( in my late 20's early 30's) I played tournament softball with a state team in Cal. Traveled all around the country playing ball. I was on the field seven days a week! Tourneys every weekend and leagues during the week. I lived for it. Metal music has always been a passion. Fronted a couple bands in my youth and did the whole bar scene. This thing with the Project has really been a wonderful outlet for my music. MM and I enjoy playing together and we put out some decent material. I relate very well with what you are saying!

I GUESS ITS LIKE ANYTHING ELSE. WHEN YOU LOVE SOMETHING AND TALK ABOUT IT ALOT YOU GET TO LEARN IT. 

MY WHOLE LIFE, HEAVY METAL AND BASEBALL HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THERE FOR ME. THOSE ARE TWO, PLACES I CAN GO TO ESCAPE THE STRESSES OF EVERYDAY LIFE. TALKING BASEBALL OR READING A BOOK, LISTENING TO OR TALKING ABOUT MUSIC WITH A COLD BEER AND SOME FRIENDS. OTHER THAN MY FAMILY THATS ALL I NEED.

I must say, I am thoroughly impressed, Scorp. WOW! I was not good enough to play on my college team. You have a wonderful knowledge of Dodger history! Very impressive, indeed.
I know the folks in Chicago have much to cry about, given that their Cubbies lost again, but they are used to it. The Dodgers have a winning organization and I really believed we were destined for the Series this year. It is very difficult to let go!!   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by scorpion01 from Wednesday, October 15, 2008 11:55:30 AM)

I'LL BE PULLING FOR THEM HARD ALSO. ORIGINATING IN BROOKLYN, THERE ARE STILL MANY DIE HARD DODGER FANS HERE. 

MANY OF THE TROLLY CAR TRACKS STILL EXIST IN BROOKLYN WHICH IS WHERE THE DODGERS GOT THEIR NAME. PEOPLE USED TO DODGE IN FRONT OF THE TROLLY CARS TO CROSS THE STREETS. ONE OF THE SEVERAL NAMES THE DODGERS WENT BY WHEN IN BROOKLYN WAS THE TROLLY DODGERS BEFORE IT WAS SHORTENED TO JUST THE DODGERS. THEY WERE ALSO CALLED THE BRIDES GROOMS FOR A FEW YEARS. 

WE STILL HAVE JACKIE ROBINSON PARKWAY, CARL ERSKINE STREET, GIL HODGES BRIDGE. THE BROOKLYN CYCLONES MASCOTTE ARE TWO BIRDS CALLED SANDY AND PEEWEE. 

THE METS NEW STADIUM NEXT YEAR WILL LOOK SIMILAR TO EBBITS FIELS AND WILL FEATURE A JACKIE ROBINSON ROTUNDA.

I'M A HUGE GIL HODGES FAN I PLAYED FOR AND NOW MANAGE 2 BASEBALL TEAMS AT GIL HODGES LITTLE LEAGUE. WE PLAY AT GIL HODGES STADIUM. 

WE STILL SEE MANY OF THE PLAYERS AND WIVES FROM THE DODGERS AT THE CYCLONES GAMES. 
MY SON LAST YEAR GOT TO GO ON THE FIELS IN HIS UNIFORM FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM WITH JOHNNY PODRES BEFORE HE PASSED AWAY AND JOAN HODGES.

WE MET CARL ERSKINE A FEW MONTHS BACK WHEN THE HAD A BOBBLE HEAD NIGHT FOR HIM. 

I FIRMLY BELIEVE GIL HODGES SHOULD BE ELECTED TO THE HALL OF FAME. I'D LOVE TO DISCUSS IT FURTHER WITH ANYONE WILLING TO HAVE THE CONVERSATION.  HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS ARE TREMENDOUS. MOST POEPLE LOOK ARE THE RAW NUMBERS AND DON'T APPRECIATE  HOW GREAT HE WAS.

I ALSO PLAYED BASEBALL AT HIGHLEVELS WHEN I WAY YOUNGER. WON THE NATIONAL BABE RUTH WORLD SETRES IN 1977, PLAYED DIVISION 1 COLLEGE BALL AGAINST MAY TO BE PROFESSIONAL PLAYERS. I ACTUYALLY HAVE OUR ANNUAL ALUMNI GAME THIS WEEKEND. 

ANYWAY GOOD LUCK TONIGHT. AND BESIDES JOE TORRE WAS BORN IN BROOKLYN

Very good point, Scorp. My problem is, I am a die-hard Dodger fan. I grew up in LA and wanted to play for them when I was a kid....you know? I went to college in LA and planned on being a professional baseball player. My grandmother always wanted me to be a Dodger. Our whole family bleeds Dodger Blue. It is tremendously difficult to watch them lose this year after all that went SO right when they got Manny and turned things around. The HUGE mistake that was Andruw Jones, the injuries to key players. I really believed that this was the year, you know?

I will be in front of my TV tonight. Hoping. Praying. Wearing my Dodger jersey and begging  the baseball gods to please, PLEASE let us back in it. It is hard to accept defeat, even when you can smell it.

AFTER LAST NIGHT I REALLY BELIEVE IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO WINS THE NATIONAL LEAGUE. THE RAYS DON'T KNOW THEY WERE INVITED TO THE PARTY JUST TO FILL A SPOT.  THEY ARE YOUNG, HUNGRY AND TALANTED FROM TOP TO BOTTOM.

I THINK MANY OF US WOULD HAVE LOVED TO SEE TORRE AND MANNY AS WELL AS NOMAR AND LOWE AND MATTINGLY GO IN AND BEAT BOSTON IN THE WORLD SERIES. ESPECIALLY THE TV NETWORKS. BIG RATINGS! 

I HAVE A ROOTING INTEREST IN THE RAYS IN GETTING TO KNOW SCOTT KAZMIR WHEN HE PLAYED HER IN BROOKLYN FOR THE CYCLONES (MINOR LEAGUE TEAM FOR THE METS) BUT I DIDN'T EXPECT THEN TO GO THIS FAR.

Well, tonight is it as far as the Dodgers are concerned. They are in a "win or go home" position from this point. The youth factor is clearly showing. I will be rooting hard for them, but it is obviously time for a bit of "divine intervention".
[Deep Freeze] Tuesday, October 14, 2008 9:00:26 PM 
AAAAARRRRGGGHH!!! I hate to agree with you on this shotz but they were PATHETIC! How the hell do you blow a lead like that??? I am officially PISSED OFF!!! Oops, wrong Thread.
