Unbelievably Horrible!

Where did our Windians disappear to?  They started out this playoff series against the Yankees with two amazing games but pretty much have fallen apart when they went to play in New York.  I just can't believe it!  This is not the same team on the field, the Indians to not make 4 errors in one game and give away 6 unearned runs!!!  (I'd like to know when was the last time that happened.)

If I had to choose one word to sum up last night's game, it would be HORRIBLE!  What word would you choose?

The Indians were struggling all night long.  The only bright spots were the homeruns by Santana and Perez and the few base runners.  Although, I did think some of our bullpen did a great job.  What I don't understand though is why Francona only let them pitch to two or three guys and then took them out when they did so well.  He does that all the time with Tyler Olson.  I haven't seen him pitch poorly yet, but he never gets to stay in for any length of time.

I really hope the Indians can use this day off to recoup, relax, rest up and come ready to play at home and win the final game of this series.  They need to relax and play their game. The question is, can they do it in a must win situation.  They certainly did not do it in NY.

C'mon tribe, let's win on Wednesday!

American Ninja Warrior Was Disappointing

Just like last year, no one was able to finish the course in the finale at Las Vegas.  I can't get over the fact that they just declare no winner and that's it.  I think they should just give those that got the farthest along a second chance and let them keep competing until someone does win, like in baseball.

I admire the athletes and like to hear their stories but feel bad that no one won after all the effort they put into training for this.  It was just a big let down and anti-climatic to say the least!  None of the athletes made it to stage 4 this year.

What do you think about this show and do you agree they need to have a winner?

Windians Are So Much Fun to Watch - Let's Go Tribe, All the Way This Year!

I took a day off work to go to the Cleveland Indians game with my husband on the day they broke the American League Record for most wins in a row.  It was a great game with lots of fun things:  the KC Royals catcher and manager got thrown out, a pitched ball hit the umpire in the shoulder and knocked him down, a hard batted ball cam back to our pitcher who caught it but then fell over on his butt and lost the ball, the outfield sprinklers came on during the game (apparently someone forgot to turn off the timer for the day game).  Fans were all friendly and in a good mood, it seemed like a playoff atmosphere.

We had Club Seats that include all the free food you can eat thanks to my place of employment (one of the perks).  I chowed down with 1 cheeseburger, 3 fries, two slices of cheese pizza, 3 slices of blueberry dessert pizza, 3 ice cream bars and popcorn which I was sort of forced into.  Several containers were sitting out for people to take and as we walked by, my husband took a hand full from one of them.  I told him he couldn't do that because no one wants some stranger's hand in their popcorn and they expect a full one too.  So, I took the one he started and we shared it.

Then the next game was sold out and the Indians continued their winning streak to 22 in dramatic fashion, with a walk-off win!  Like Tom Hamilton said, "Someone wins the World Series every year but no other team in the American League has won 22 straight!"

Love the tribe!  Hopefully, this will be our year to win the World Series!  Their winning streak came to an end last night with a score of 4-3, but watching the crowd afterward, you would have thought they won.  It was a great moment when the fans gave them a standing ovation and the team came out and tipped their hats to the crowd.  See it here:  Fans Salute Tribe After Record Streak Ends

Stupid Photobucket Really Got Me Mad--Boo on Photobucket!

I seldom used Photobucket but did open an account way back when.  I was just beginning my computer experience and was participating in some forums on My Space.  In order to include some pics, I used photobucket and that is the only reason I started on there.  I never liked it much, found the website very user unfriendly and pretty much ignored it after that for the most part.

Now I not only got an email about having to upgrade my account and PAY to do it but also had messages on this blog to upgrade my account!  (I came across this on someone else's blog as well.)  UGH!  NOT doing that. Unfortunately though, photobucket somehow was able to put their ad on my widgets!  I emailed photobucket asking them to remove them and was told they couldn't unless I pay to upgrade.  I closed my photobucket account.  I do not want anything to do with them!  This really gets me mad!

I also tried deleting the widget and starting over but the photobucket ad still showed up.  It is very annoying and frustrating.  If anyone has any suggestions as to how I can get this fixed other than paying for an upgrade on an account I do not want, I would love to hear them.

Dog Gone Fun at the Cleveland Zoo

video

Last Saturday, we saw a dog show at the zoo with stunt dogs who were all rescue dogs.  It was so much fun that we went again the next day and this time brought my camera along.  Saturday, I got to pet Confetti, the last dog.   It was very fun seeing the dogs really enjoy doing their stunts and I liked how they got the audience involved as well.

You still can go see it this weekend yet! 

(I apologize for the poor quality of this video but I had to use the email save for it to make it small enough to upload to my blog.)
