It’s time for some Spider Baseball! The University of Richmond baseball team had an eleven game win streak going until George Mason came to town and beat them yesterday. Both the Spiders and Patriots now have 11-4 records. And college baseball continues here on Friday when the Princeton Tigers try to demonstrate some Ivy League superiority. Good luck!
I definitely need to get over there this weekend and take some photos. Everyone is fixated on college basketball with March Madness in full swing but U of R is not going anywhere on the hard court. Last year they made it to the sweet sixteen round! So there’s room for baseball here in Richmond this year. The forecast is calling for sunny weather in the 70’s and 80’s with scattered T-storms this weekend.
And there are reports of a 6.8 earthquake off the coast of Japan! Yikes. I noted yesterday that we were having dreams about earthquakes and here they are! Thankfully there are no reports of any major damage or injury. No tsunamis. There have been thousands of aftershocks since the devastating quake last March. So when there are news reports you have to assume this one is worse. Can you imagine living in a place where there are thousands of tremors happening? That’s like every day! That’s like every time the wind blows the ground shakes!
That’s like it’s time to get out and move someplace where things are more solid. Where’s that? I have no idea. Apparently they are not even solid here in Virginia. Last summer our house shook like an old washing machine. The earth is acting like it wants to shake us off like water on a wet dog.
“Like” is the word of the day, blogging fans. Like it’s time to say goodnight. Or, good day! In any case it’s time to enjoy the weather and baseball as the cherry blossoms burst onto the scene early and the ground trembles with delight. That’s fine. Just as long as it doesn’t get too excited! No one would like that.
