Got schedule mixed up

I said it was Giants v Astros I was going to watch, I got timeslots mixed up. I actually watched A's v Rangers. No need to talk about disappointment though. This was a cracking game filled with some real excitement. From what the commentators were saying it sounded like the Rangers had promised much in the first two games, but did not manage to convert.

Well, they converted this one 2-1. Good solid pitching from Lewis until he let Dye get away with a HR in the 6th which rattled him. Sign of inexperience still I guess, I hope he learns to settle because his earlier performance was sheer class. The fielding though was what was great about this game. Two fantastic outfield catches, some nice double plays, plus a few other nice moves. Of course there was a Soriano error that threatened to ruin it for the Rangers, turning a popout out into a double. But then Menge (I think) made two catches out in the left to finish off the innings.

Great game, even if I kept threatening to doze off because of mu general exhausted state after job apps.

Luckily Good Friday is a Bank Holiday. Just one more day at work to cope with. Surely I can survive that.

This was not in the script

Devil Rays beat Yankees in Florida 9-4

This may well not be able to last, but go Tampa!

Tonight, clear of apps, I intend to actually take time to watch the Giants v Astros without feeling guilty (I may even feel virtuous and do my ironing).

Incidentally, I don't really get much option of what to watch. Whatever is on NASNs schedule.

Done and done

Finally, for the next couple of days at least, I am free from the scourge of job applications.

In all honesty I am now mostly depressed about what I wrote, but that palls next to my joy and having finished the damned thing and sent it off.

Now if only I actually got the job life would be so sweet.

Watch this space, as they say.

I. Hate. This. Job. Application.

I swear this entire process was made to make me feel miserable.

Fortunately baseball has started.

And in a side note, congrats to the Devil Rays and the Os, and the other underdogs that have won in the last few days. There is something wonderful about a game (any game) where the underdogs can turn the tables like this. Like the soccer World Cup in Japan - when Senegal beat France in the opening match it electrified the tournament.

More blogging when app gets done,
