Tuesdays are grey too?

This morning looked just like yesterday morning, grey and rainy…

For dinner tonight, Genifer made this buffalo chicken pasta

Omigosh. It was soooo good. It was just the right amount of spicy. We had garlic bread with our buffalo chicken pasta. And I love garlic bread.

Then it was back for another walk. And it was still grey and rainy…

Good evening from Northside…

We watched a few more episodes of The Queen’s Gambit tonight.

On the iPad, I watched the Dodgers buy themselves a World Series title. I mean, they had the best team that money could buy. Spared no expense. In my opinion, this season and this World Series should always have an asterisk next to it. But that might be because I just really dislike the Dodgers. They’re like the Yankees of the West. Only without all the championships. 😀🌄❤️

Today felt like autumn.

The sky was very pretty this morning…

It’s still been pretty warm with temperature in the mid-to-upper 70s and low 80s. But today was a little bit cooler with a high of just 70º…

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made an Autumn Sausage Veggie & Apple Sheet Pan for dinner…

With Stove Top stuffing! I love Stove Top stuffing…

Thankfully, it’s finally Stove Top stuffing season again. Stuffing makes it feel like autumn. Did I mention I love stuffing?

Good evening from Northside…

And that was our Tuesday. We watched the the Rays go 3-0 up on the cheaters from Houston. And the Braves took a 2-0 lead over the Dodgers. A Rays versus Braves World Series wouldn’t be too bad. 😀🌄⚾️❤️

Watching baseball one year ago.

One year ago today, we got to see the best player in baseball, Mike Trout of the Angels play baseball at GABP with our friends…

And we saw Mike Trout go yard…

And it was an awesome night. I miss going to Reds baseball games so much. Thanks for all the wonderful memories, Timehop. 😀🦕⚾️❤️

A Friday with Reds baseball.

We got up extra early this morning to run a couple of errands before work. But first, we had to walk the dogs. It was a little hazy this morning. The hill off in the distance looked extra distant today…

Good morning from Northside…

Our little shrub in our front yard is so blossomy…

We ran to Lowe’s so Genifer could get another gallon of paint for the living room. And then we swung through Mad Llama for coffee

And we made it back home for my 9am meeting. It turned out to be a very pretty day…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we watched the entire Reds game, from the first pitch until the last…

The Reds looked formidable as they beat the Tigers 7-1. It was really good to watch the Reds again! And it’s so amazing to have MLB back in our lives. While we were watching the game, Oscar snuck in between the sofa and the ottoman…

It was such a pretty evening…

It was a really good Friday. It’s terrific to have baseball back! 😀⚾️❤️

Baseball is back!

Welcome back baseball! Our Redlegs look like they have a pretty good team this year…

This is going to be a very unique, one-of-a-kind season the likes of which will hopefully never happen again. It should make the baseball really interesting…

With the COVID-19 shortened regular season only being 60 games long, every game is really going to matter. And I hope baseball can make it all the way through the regular season to get the expanded playoffs…

Because that sounds like it would be a blast! Fingers crossed that the COVID-19 doesn’t ruin this too. 😀⚾️🦠❤️

I don’t understand why baseball didn’t try to create a bubble just like the other major North American sports. After a rocky start, the MLS bubble seems to be holding really well and the so far the NBA bubble seems to be intact too. It’ll be interesting to see if the MLB made a huge mistake by not creating a bubble in Arizona with all the little spring training ballparks out there. I guess we’ll find out.

One. More. Day.

Baseball is back tomorrow! We’re so excited to finally get to watch our Redlegs again!

And where it’ll be incredible to have MLB baseball back, I’ve been enjoying the MLS is Back tournament so much. I’ve watched every match of the tournament either live or recorded or both. It’s been so much fun to watch. I’ve really looked forward to the matches with the 9am kickoffs every morning over the last couple of weeks. It’s been awesome to get ready for work and then be able to listen to a live soccer match while I settle in and start my workday. Today was the last day of the group stage play. And unfortunately, I think that means no more 9am kickoffs.

Now that the morning soccer matches are over, I’m probably going to go back to listening to the KBO baseball games as I start work each day. I’ve been missing my Doosan Bears baseball during the soccer tournament.

I’m really happy that sports are back. It makes the world feel a little more normal again. 😀⚾️⚽️🇰🇷📺❤️

Timehopping.

Five years ago today was the MLB All-Star Game live from Great American Ballpark in beautiful downtown Cincinnati…

Five years on and it’s still one of the most incredible sporting events I’ve ever attended. But it wasn’t just the All-Star Game, it was all the build-up to the game, all the months of excitement around Cincinnati and all the events of All-Star Week that made it such a memorable event. That, and getting to snap a photo of these guys…

We’ve done some pretty incredible stuff in Cincinnati.

Thanks for all the wonderful memories, Timehop. 😀🦕⚾️❤️

All in on the KBO.

I’ve really gone all in on the Korean Baseball games they’ve been playing on ESPN. Not having MLB baseball, or really sports in general, has been pretty annoying. And Korean Baseball is definitely filling the void. It’s been super fun to watch and learn about a new league that I’ve never been exposed to before.

The KBO games start ridiculously early, what with coming live from Korea and all. I set our YouTubeTV to record all of them. And then I listen to them while I’m working during the day. The KBO baseball has been pretty entertaining. The games are competitive. It’s been compared to a triple-A league here in the States. And for the most part, the games aren’t lacking in offense. There’s a lot of scoring. Because there is a lack of dominant, overpowering pitchers in the KBO.

I decided pretty early on that my KBO team would be the Doosan Bears from Seoul. I flirted briefly with making my team the NC Dinos. But I decided to go with the Bears because I love bears just a little bit more than I love dinosaurs. But it was really close.

I even ordered a Doosan Bears ballcap all the way from Korean…

If you haven’t been watching, the games are being played in empty stadiums because of the COVD-19 pandemic. In this morning’s KBO game live from Daejeon Hanbat Baseball Stadium, home of the Hanwha Eagles, every seat behind home plate was filled with donated stuffed animals

How awesome is that? The commentators said that the animals would all be donated to children’s charities. The more I watch the KBO, the more I like it. It’s the baseball we know and love with a uniquely Asian twist. And it’s pretty entertaining.

ESPN said they’ll be showing the rest of this season in its entirety, including the playoffs. I hope that the are more seasons of Korean baseball after this one. It’s darn pretty fun. And it’s great to have some baseball back in our lives. 😀⚾️🐻❤️

Pause for paws.

Oscar is sooooo fluffy

He gets a very much needed haircut on Friday. 😀🐾✂️❤️

And here’s photo of Oscar when we were still able to watch baseball…

I really miss baseball.

Five years ago.

Five years ago today was what will forever be known as the Great Power Stack Fire Game of 2015. Or the Reds game when one of the Power Stacks caught on fire…

Thanks for the memories, Timehop.  I miss baseball so dang much. 😀⚾️🔥❤️
