I just bought some of these ugly shoes. I got the sea blue ones. I'm kind of ashamed, because they're really ugly and a little too trendy for my taste. But I know a bunch of people who have them and love them and I just couldn't resist. I'm a total shoe whore and I'm strangely attracted to ugly shoes. I wonder if there are support groups for this. I got mine on ebay because I couldn't find any online shoe stores that had the blue ones in stock. Or, if they had them in stock, they wanted $10 for shipping. That's not happening. I refuse to pay more than $5 to ship something. There are limited exceptions to that rule, like large or really hard to find items that I must have, but generally i say hell no. I am sick and tired of merchants and ebay sellers who try to make an extra buck by over charging for shipping. Greedy bastards. Anyway, my ugly shoes are on the way. I hope they get here before I leave for the lake Friday after work.
The Redhawks won 11-1 last night. It was pretty fun. The Hawks scored in the 6th inning, earning everyone in attendance (but most importantly, me) a coupon for a free taco at Taco Bueno. They also earned me a Pizza Hut card with 9 buy 1 get 1 free coupons on it because they scored 9 runs. It was a productive evening. I really don't care about getting these things because I accumulate tons of them during the season and never use them. But still, it's really fun to cheer for them. I want this free stuff that I don't use simply because I'm greedy. Greed is fun. Kind of sad, eh?
There were a ton of hit batters in the game last night. I was expecting a brawl but it never happened. I'm hoping that maybe there will be some bad blood that holds over to the next three games in the series due to the hit batters and blowout nature of last night's game. There could easily be a brawl soon. I know it's kind of lame to hope for a brawl, but it's just so rare in minor league ball. We only get fights every 3 or 4 years. I cherish fights when we have them. It's not that I'm totally blood thirsty. For instance, I don't care about hockey fights anymore. They were fun when I first started watching hockey, but they happen so much that they're more of a nuisance than anything else. There's no novelty to a hockey fight. But baseball fights are awesome. The unintentional comedy is off the charts.
Gotta run. I really just wanted to drop in briefly and confess my shoe whore shame. I didn't mean to go into a detailed analysis of my views on fighting. Toodles.
