The National Pastime

9 Jun

We’re having a baseball day today. First, Rob listened to the Indians game (they won!). Then we took the ipad to the gym where I downloaded Major League. It took over an hour to download, which was sort of a drag. I used the computer lab at the gym to email Rob on the progress every 5 seconds. All internet access in Australia has data limits, which is soooooo annoying. And we were close to our limit for this month, which it why I used the wifi at the gym. We just finished watching Major League, such a silly movie. I hadn’t seen it in many years. Did you know the big guy that is into voodoo is the All State Insurance/President on 24 actor?

Best line from the movie:

Jake Taylor: I play for the Indians.
Claire Holloway: Here in Cleveland? I didn’t know they still had a team!
Jake Taylor: Yup, we’ve got uniforms and everything, it’s really great!

Next we’re going to watch episode 10 of the Ken Burns Baseball documentary. I can now probably get a few baseball trivia questions right in Trivial Pursuit. I’ll be unstoppable!

The only things missing are hotdogs and cotton candy for dinner.
