This was done to the not at all dulcet tones of the Mariner broadcasters. Yesterday, our best pitcher (also one of the best pitchers in baseball) gave up 9 runs in the 1st inning. It redefined ugly. Today, the Mariners responded by morphing into a run factory. I have, for years, always felt so sad for the broadcasters having to sound cheery and hopeful about a team that lives in the basement every single year. They do a great job and deserve a day like today.
After the game, I spent some quality time with YouTube swimming lessons. I need to really knuckle down and teach myself how to breathe by turning my head either way. Right now it only goes to the right and I think that's what's making my neck and shoulders sore - or at least contributing to it. I tried, this morning, to swim some laps turning my head to the left. It wasn't that successful. But now I have some good tips and things to try from Coach YouTube. I'll be giving them a go tomorrow morning.
I had a great cheese burger for dinner and I have a nutty buddy waiting in the freezer.
The Sounders band just chanted on by my terrace. Knitting and junk TV on tap tonight.
What a lovely Saturday.
