I'm Cathy. A's fan since 1999, Barry Zito fan since 1998. Don't read too much into it. Recent University of the Pacific graduate. Newly transplanted NRAF. Living life on the East Coast, representing the West Coast. I like to write, especially when I can write about my life AND baseball in tandem. Sometimes, the only thing that's fair in life is between the foul lines.

My groovy new-fangled purse + OPEN THREAD

The first time I tried to post this, the computer shut down. Let's try again. I made a new purse thingy. I don't like the word purse. It sounds too prissy. :P I got bored, had a bag and transfer...


Open Thread PLUS a plea for pictures

Since the game was at 10:30 today, I think we need some fun. And I need a diversion from my BORING biology homework. And I need some help for you guys. For English, I have to bring in something...


My venting diary about BAL game plus crappy pics

Helloo everyone! As you may know, I was at the game yesterday. I'm not in the greatest mood from it. Quite frankly, it wasn't the best game I've ever been to. I woke up later than anticipated, and...


Open Thread PLUS my spiffy new bag

Remember when I asked for that Huston quote last night? Well, I found one. And I loved it. It fit perfectly with what I was planning to do. McFood, it wasn't a hairpiece. It was a bag. What else is...


Open Thread PLUS my AN day poster :)

Since there is no game today , there is no post-game discussion about how the A's did today. Therefore, we need to make our own fun. Today with the off day, I decided to start on my AN day...


Stringently Gobbledygook...

...which translates into Strictly Enforced Nonsense. Yes, they're both words. I love my thesaurus. Blez doesn't open Open Threads anymore , and that causes the extreme need for gibberish. Or...

Clubhouse remains a funhouse

I was on www.oaklandathletics.com (no surprise) and I stumbled upon one of the best articles I had read in a long time. You want to get Bobby Crosby moving again after he's grinded out nine hard...


Macy's Day!

Ahh... today, June 16th, was the day the gods would be at my second home, Stoneridge mall. Bobby Crosby and Eric Byrnes were to make an appearance at 6:00 PM. I was so excited, my friend and I...

Yankees anyone?

Hey there, everyone. I was just wondering... is anyone here going to the Yanks game tomorrow? I'd sure love to meet some ANers at the game tomorrow. We would have a blast! I'll be hard to miss. I'm...


My Moneyball Bookreport

Remember that Moneyball report I asked you guys for help on a while back? Well, it ended up being a success. I did an oral presentation and a written report (the oral presentation being extra...


Final Spring Training game... I met Huston!

Oh My God. I met Huston Street. I asked him about AN. :D He thought I said A&M. He confirmed that he indeed visited AN often. Yes! That was an extremely... exciting conversation for me. :) I asked...


Interview with Huston Street

I was looking for some stuff on Huston Street and this interview came up. I thought it was really cool; Huston has a lot of interesting stuff to say. This was done on June 10th of last year. I'm...



In the Open Lurker thread, (http://www.athleticsnation.com/story/2005/3/8/82016/66749#commenttop), LD shared www.gizoogle.com with us. I was curious so I went to investigate. It turns out it...


Fan Fest Pics

As of two hours ago, I recieved my Fan Fest pictures from the store. Yeah, they're shitty pictures, but I was too busy having fun to take many pictures. That, and the guards wouldn't let me take...


"Moneyball" Book report... HELP!!!!

    "I wrote this book because I fell in love with a story. The story concerned a small group of undervalued professional baseball players and executives, many of whom had been rejected as unfit...


How well do you know the A's?

AN is quiet. Too quiet. I've decided to post a quiz. I bet all of you know the A's pretty well. Hopefully. But, with the help of the internet, I have come up with this quiz. Try not to look up the...


Favorite Players and gimme reasons why :p

I think a diary like this might have been started about a week or so ago but since I wasn't here, I wished to start a new one. Ever since I came on AN, I have been very vocal on my two favorite...

Something to make you smile

At Livermore High School, Dr. Green (our principal... his name is just a coincidence) expects a lot of the Concert Choir. So much, that he gave us a song to sing at the next rally, i guess. I loved...


A diary to pass the time

As I sit here, bored out of my mind, waiting for school to start yet again, I can't help but think about my A's game experiences. From getting hit on by Angels fans to meeting Mark Mulder to being...


Suspensions given to NBA players

The suspensions have been given out! A bit harsh but they totally deserved it. Pacers forward Ron Artest has been suspended for the remainder of the season. Indiana guard Stephen Jackson has been...


A Tribute to Huddy's rookie season

You know, what we least want to happen most inevitable will happen. One of the Big Three will go. Unfortunately, we will all be affected in some way if either one of them goes. If Mulder goes,...


Pedro to the Yanks?

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=1921200 Interesting article, really. About how Jorge Posada would feel if Pedro were to go to NY. One can't easily forget the 2003 ALDS. Hmm... I wonder...


How did each player contribute to the A's?

All in all, I think the A's did pretty well in 2004. Not good enough to get into the post season, but well enough to keep us entertained throughout six months. Now before I ask my question, I want...
