Getting Ready For The All-Star Game, & A Look At My Tribe-Filled Life.

This is going to be a entry with a lot of different info, so brace yourself. :}
First off, the home-run derby of last night. I watched the whole thing, and let me tell you..I was so wrong in my predictions! I thought it would come down to Albert and Carlos, & it came down to Nelson & Price. Who, “became king” according to the announcers. I was very suprised that Albert didn’t win, I thought he would at least be the top two. I enjoyed the derby a lot, and the special thing is..this was the first one I ever saw! It wont be my first All-Star game though, I watched that last year and stayed up until 1:00 in the morning.

Albert Pujols did very well though, I really liked his swing. The weird thing I noticed was that before when he swung, he had a kick to it, & then he suddenly didn’t. Either he was trying to lucky up his swing, or he was just tired, I’m not sure.

Okay, now into my Tribe-Filled Life. I cant have an Indians blog without talking about just how obsessive I am about my team. First off, my room. Every year I get more Tribe stuff to put in my room, & this is what I have so far : An Indians blanket and matching pillow, a Grady Sizemore Pennant, a “Official Indians Clubhouse” sign that you see before you enter my room, a Tribe Teddy Bear,a Grady Sizemore Cup, a Indians pennant, a Indians license plate, a Shin-Shoo-Choo poster, a HUGE blow up bat, a Mini Indians bat, a Indians doorhanger, a Indians flag, an Indians Pez Dispenser, a Indians ticket, 2 Tribe headbands and 2 sweatbands, a Indians cup, a Omar Vizquel baseball, and a regular Tribe baseball, & some pictures around my room. Now that’s just accesories..I have a lot of Tribe clothes too. I am going to put some pics below.

These are not all my Tribe things, just some of them. & The words about Cleveland fans is what is on the back of my Indians Pez Dispenser. 🙂

Last but NOT least, the All-Star Game. Who do you all think will win? I hope the AL wins, and to be honest I think they will. I’m predicting another extra inning game. Victor Martinez is catching, & he is the only representative going to the game for us. He said this about the All Star Game ; “Getting to be here with my family and enjoying it is great,” he said. “You look around and you see all these great players, and you have to enjoy it. The All-Star Game is all about having fun.” He was also asked where he would like to be next & said ; “I would like to stay [with Cleveland],” he said, “and hopefully retire as an Indian.”

    This was the first time I watched the Home Run Derby too. It was very interesting!! Wow, you have a ton of Indians stuff!! That is so cool. It’s going to be a very interesting All-Star game. I really hope the NL wins, but we’ll have to see

    Love all the Indians stuff! Wish I could’ve had a room like that when I was younger! Not Indians, or course, but Red Sox or Expos would’ve been fine. 🙂 The Rays came around while I was in college, so I had to pretend to grow up! Then again, it would’ve been a wonderful way to annoy my roommate! LOL!

    Yeah, you read my prection, I knew Prince would win! I love his swing. It is so fun to watch. Imagine how far he could hit the ball if he actually ate meat (he is a vegitarian). And how do you know Victor Martinez is catching in the All Star game? He may not even play, since Joe Mauer is starting.

    IT’S TIME – – come on Giant fans. Please post your displeasure of Zito and get him the hell out of the lineup. The Giants have a chance to win and Zito will be the reason we don’t if he’s left in the rotation. Eat the contract and make up the contract loss with the ensuing playoff ticket sales and fever that will sweep SF and the nation. We have a very good story here and a good chance to do something special – – IF ZITO IS OUT OF THE ROTATION. It’s time – – speak up fans – here in the blogs and the call-in shows – every day until the Giants bite the bullet. Fans – don’t think of it any other way than ‘it’s just business’. Barry signed the contract and he’s keeping the money – just business right? Well, if Barry is killing the team then replace him – it’s just business! Go Giants – Go away Zito.

    Ok. That tears it. I’m getting a Rays bedspread NOW.

    I, like you, am very easy to buy for when holidays or birthdays come up. Get me a Rays hat, a Cubs t-shirt, or a bobblehead of Evan Longoria and I’m good. I love the little trinkets you can put around the room.
