Raised in Fullerton, living in Las Vegas.

One of my best memories is getting the chance to sell programs at Game Seven of the 2002 World Series - which was the very first postseason game I'd ever attended in any capacity. Yelling "ANGELS WIN!" at the top of my lungs while waving around $20 souvenir programs and celebrating with my fellow Angels fans was unforgettable.

Right up there was getting the chance to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before an Angels game wearing a Halos Heaven shirt.

Angels Light-up Car Decal

15

I was watching Shark Tank because I've become a poor, starving entrepreneur and watching other people's really stupid ideas make them money makes me happy. One pitch was for a light-up car decal, which just sounded great, and now it's available as a licensed Angels decal for $25. If I wasn't a poor, starving entrepreneur then I'd buy one myself, but I'll have to live vicariously though someone else here taking the plunge.

Yankees Fans vs. Cliff Lee's Wife

6

Who wants to put on some Rangers garb and start spitting on Mrs. Lee in the World Series? Regardless, good to see a player's wife actually try to dissuade her husband from going to New York.

Bengie Molina vs. ESPN

Bengie writes that "ESPN's sarcastic depiction of me running in slow motion down third base and getting thrown out at home in the Marlins' game was hard to take."

I hate to see all the injuries up in Oakland, but them's the breaks. We're tied for first.

The Yankees Payroll

6

The following is a screed about the Yankees payroll. It is, I think, something that is always bubbling below the surface of baseball (when you are not a Yankees fan). I rarely write about it because … it’s like writing about the heat in Phoenix. We all know it’s there, and we don’t really want to talk about it anymore. But with the Yankees winning the World Series and then talking about how it showed the team’s character, well, yeah, I thought maybe this once …

While Philadelphia players admitted the 11-month championship-winless streak has been difficult for them personally, most agreed that it's the fans who've suffered most, enduring more than 500,000 minutes without a World Series victory. "Our fans are incredible," said left fielder Raul Ibanez, who was brought to the Phillies during the offseason in the hopes that he could help Philadelphia finally get back on the winning track. "If I were them, I would have given up on us weeks ago, after we lost our 69th game and failed to win the National League East by more than 10 [games]. But they stuck with us."

Okay, so the pitch wasn't a good one, but Pettit caught it, and for that I'm grateful. And I got to wear my Del Ninja shirt on the mound at Angels Stadium -- Thanks for Cupie to getting it to me juuust in the nick of time!

Angels face possible discipline for calling out umpires

I guess the umpires went crying to the MLB home office after getting picked on by the Angels pitching and coaching staff?
