Lunch Break Ramblings

Today, while eating my two day old chicken breast, I was thinking about the lack of love that low market teams get in the news.

The Colorado Rockies just went on a streak in which they won 16 out of 17. This is virtually unheard of in baseball. Yet, the most recent ESPN power ranking has them at 15 in the league. I understand that they were unbelievably bad before the streak, but c'mon.

Between the Rockies and the Nuggets, Colorado gets no love from the media. The Nuggets were the number 2 team in the west for most of the season and didn't get much press until they took the Lakers to six games in the conference finals. Everybody knows who Andrew Bynum is, but not many could tell you who Nene Hilario is. The lack of coverage kinda pisses me off.

The Rockies rarely play on ESPN. Their games are only televised on the local stations. Yet teams like the Mets and Dodgers are frequently televised, even when they suck.

Anyway, I don't have too big of a point, just kinda Rambling before I have to go back to work.

There is something unique about being close. Close physical and emotional proximity creates an exciting yet soothing feeling.

I enjoy sunshine. I enjoy the breeze. I enjoy being barefoot. I enjoy baseball. I enjoy the rain. I enjoy running. I enjoy gazing. I enjoy kissing. I enjoy walking. I enjoy talking. I enjoy listening. I enjoy laughing. I enjoy drinking.

These things I enjoy most with her...
