The Game That Would Not End

9

We were lucky enough to escape Tuesday night while the Angels were still alive... pics from the 1-1 tie we LEFT.

I'm calling it now!

14

These guys are going on a winning jag - something crazy like 14 out of 16, 15 out of 18 - they will come thiiiiiiiis close to a wild card. Watching them last night was like watching the 2002 Angels - they were having fun, making awesome plays, and they never doubted for a second they could come back. Go for it, guys!!

Weaver series photo

3

I saw some amazing "series" shots from the Olympics and I remembered I had a good series of Weaver from last year. I am still learning how to adjust the layers, but this is more fun than thinking about last night's game!

Photos from 7-29 game

Got to see Mr. Greinke's debut yesterday. There are some warm-up shots, his first pitch (sequence), and the few hits we had - I have lots of shots of our guys striking out, but who wants to see that? Had to leave early so was spared the agony of Albert's last at-bat.

OT: Transit of Venus pics

21

Put my newly-built solar filter to good use yesterday, shot Venus crossing the sun from about 4 - 8 pst. Had to move the camera to avoid a tree, and those are not rings on the sun in the last couple of frames, they are power lines...

Here are some photos from last night's HH meetup at Throwbacks in honor of eyespy's visit to the mainland. I lost track of names, sorry. I think someone is gooing to consolidate all the pcitures, here are mine. Feel free to download, I have high res images if needed. I'll be out today so wanted to get these up, e-mail me if you need anything ckkoogler at earthlink dot net.

Completely OT: Eclipse Images

17

Yesterday I made a solar filter for my zoom lens and took pictures of the eclipse - it was a lot more fun than watching the game, and took far less time. I had to move my camera around to avoid trees, etc... which is why some angles change. I must say, looking directly at the sun and not being blinded is pretty cool.

Freakin' me out!

30

In a kitchen drawer I use every day, deep in the back, is a cheesey bottle opener that plays Rory's call of the final out of the 2002 WS. 15 minutes ago, I opened the drawer and heard "Here's the pitch to Lofton, fly ball center field - Erstad says he's got it. Erstad makes the catch! The Anaheim Angels are the champions of baseball!!!" I was trying to open the drawer and figure out where the damn thing was, I heard it about 8 times. Made me sad, and then hopeful this is some kind of ghost from the past coming to our rescue. And I don't believe in that shit. But it's kind of freakin' me out.

First game of the season

A few pics from our first game - sadly, a loss. But it was great to be there, this season is going to be fun!

Spring Training 3-11

Link to pics here. I attended a conference in Phoenix this week, we flew in on Sunday and met my cousin and his wife at Tempe Diablo for the split-squad Angels-Indians game. It was a perfect day,...

"It's the fans that need spring training. You gotta get 'em interested. Wake 'em up and let 'em know that their season is coming, The good times are gonna roll." - Harry Cary I am so damned excited, we are going to Sunday's game! It's a split squad, I rolled the dice that the big guns will play at home. I got seats near 1st base, and would love to post pics of Mr. Pujols in action. Or Mr. Morales. Or even Mr. Trumbo, in a pinch. Honestly, I don't care who we see, I just can't wait to be sitting in the sun watching the Angels play. Never been to Diablo Stadium, any info/suggestions are welcome.

Tip of the hat to Club Top5 for this - a comprehensive list of the characters who populate our forums. (Note: clicking 'next warrior' brings a random selection, so if you don't want to miss any you need to use the dropdown). A little dated but still spot-on!

I am a lucky friggin' girl!!!!! Mrs. Raskul (trust me, there is nothing wrong with that) picked a grab bag at the Angels For Animals event today, and guess what was inside - a Scott Downs autographed baseball and the Golden Ticket to the VIP meet & greet with Howie and 4 other PTBNL! Awesome, is all I can say!

Who would you hire?

A lot of people around here are calling for Arte to fire Tony Reagins. I'm starting to believe it might be necessary as well as possible. I have no idea where you get a new GM - are they groomed...

We went to our first game of the season on Sunday. It was perfect weather, I had a new camera and awesome rental lens (sorry for the color shifting!) - and then Jered Weaver pitched an amazing game!

Only a few Angels on the list - maybe they acquired Wells to help some of the other guys set up accounts...

Jose Guillen is NUTS!

Summary of the last paragraph of an article about his trade to the Giants: "Guillen struggled with injuries in Kansas City... he was out for weeks after a knee injury sustained while putting on a shin guard and missed several days of 2009 spring training after deciding to rip out an ingrown toenail with a pair of pliers."
