Sorry for the random title, I have that LMFAO song stuck in my head :). Also, in approximately 4 months and 1 day until I can legally take some shots shots shots shots shots. I am extremely excited for things going on right now which is great since my last entry was such a downer. I didn’t get much response from it which doesn’t surprise me since it was so negative. But I am happy to report that I still love and support the Rockies! During that time of being bummed, I erased my Twitter. I made a new one tonight and started fresh. So, before i get to baseball I just wanna let you all know what I’ve been doing. My summer has been busy/awesome so far. I still haven’t been to a pool or water world yet this year but the summer is still young. I’ve been going to pool halls and hookah bars and just hanging with friends almost every day. Saturday I had to stay home and recover from how much I had been going out, I missed a lot of baseball though which really sucked but I have been catching up on it these past few days. I was at work, last day before vacation and I got a text that said, “The pitcher from Detroit just got screwed.” At first I just ignored it because it’s Detroit and we weren’t playing them and I was extremely busy at work so I was like, “eh whatevs.” Once I got off I remembered the text and I wrote back asking what happened. That’s when I heard the story of one of my new idols, Armando Galarraga. I hadn’t even seen the replay, just reading the description made me mad because I can’t stand when umpires blow calls. I got online and looked up the replay and that was not a blown call, it was a blind man throwing out a random call of “safe.” Jim Joyce, the umpire who blew that call apologized and felt horrible and a lot of people respect that, but I don’t. That call should have never been blown in the first place. Ground balls almost always result in an out. Galarraga was very classy about it, though. I have a temper so if I were him, I am not sure I would have handled it as well as he did. In my mind, that was a perfect game and he did great! Just as touching to me as when Ubaldo pitched his no-no. I respect and am touched by Armando’s performance because he is a good athlete and shows good sportsmanship. Some players, who will go unnamed, I do not like or respect at all because they are either arrogant while they play or in the media or they dont show good sportsmanship. Galarraga had such good sportsmanship and integrity, that he was rewarded with a Corvette. I watched the video and it was awesome! People were cheering for him, and Joyce had tears in his eyes and patted Armando on the back and Armando just smiled and accepted his prize. I really think they should have overturned the call though. I love that baseball has stayed true to its origins, but when calls like this are blown, I think replay is needed. It’s not like it was a blown home run call that cost either team the game… This was going to be a perfect game! I was shocked just by seeing Ubaldo’s no hitter. If Ubaldo was going for a perfect game and I was there, or even the man myself… and I got screwed out of it, I would probably have a heart attack! I am very passionate about sports, moments like championship games and perfect games make my eyes water because of how special they are. Back to Jim Joyce, though. I do not agree with his call period but seeing him cry showed me that he cared and really felt responsible for his call and for ruining Galarraga’s spot in the history books, and it made me respect him a little bit. But, to end this part of my entry, Armando Galarraga, in my eyes had a perfect game and I will always respect and look up to that man. I love it, I love how we find and come across new idols every day. Most of my idols are come from sports and one of them is definitely Troy. I touch on this because he is currently growing a mullet for charity for Children’s Hospital and for the special games Colorado. I saw him do an interview saying how fans from other teams give him grief about his mullet but once they find out what it’s for he thinks they will respect it more. I definitely respect it for because when I first saw it I was like, “first “Party in the USA” and now this?!” Hahah, nah I am playing, everything the man does has purpose and the purpose is always a positive, caring thing so kudos to him and his mullet! I was talking about charitable things with a friend and we came up with the idea of eating a bag of sunflower seeds a day or having a sunflower seed eating contest. I thought it was pretty cool. Oh, and if you wanna donate to Tulo’s cause you can go to http://www.coloradorockies.com/mullet. Let me sidetrack for a moment, if I may… My brother got married this weekend so that is another thing I have been doing! It was such a nice wedding and I met a lot of cool people and went to an after party haha. Here’s a pic of the wedding party, it was one of my favorites.
