Blockbusters, Brackets, and Basketball
Hey fans, as the second month of the season comes to an end, our team is 22-26. We hit a couple of rough patches, but we are 6-3 over our past 9 games, playing well. We aren’t quite at the dog days of summer yet, but we are in a stretch of 24 straight games without a day off. So when you have day games, it is important to take advantage of your afternoon and evening. I am a big movie buff, so over the past week I have taken in 3 movies.
The other day after a day game I went to go see the new movie Angels and Demons. I saw The Davinci Code and also read the book, and I thought this movie was just as good. Tom Hanks and Ron Howard are a great duo, and I recommend seeing it if you haven’t already.
I also saw X-Men: Wolverine and The Terminator. Both were action adventures that were sequels to the originals. If you are in the mood for cheap entertainment and good special effects, these movies are good for you!
Also recently, if you do not follow college baseball, the NCAA playoffs have begun. This weekend is the first round regional bracket. A few of my teammates and I are following the games on ESPN. Although USC did not make the tournament, Coastal Carolina and Ohio State (my roommates alma mater’s) made it. And UC Irvine, where my younger brother plays baseball at, made it as well. These college playoff games are exciting and bring back old memories of playing with a metal bat!
I have also been following the NBA playoffs. I originally predicted the Cavaliers taking on the Lakers, but Orlando is looking good. There are a lot of Magic fans in Tampa, being only 45 minutes away from Amway Arena, where they play. But I will be wearing purple and gold this week, for my heart must stay true to my hometown Lakers. It should be a fun and exciting series.
That’s all I got this week, thanks again to all those who follow the Tampa Yankees and my blog. God Bless.
