About Minda

I hail from Nebraska, and I like to take pictures. I love the Royals more than what the Surgeon General recommends (the recommendation, in case you need to know, is about 4.5 milligrams per day for persons of average height and weight).

The Twins are IN

So…that game just happened. It was a thrilling combination of bad teams, bad umpiring, bad announcers, and a stadium that everyone hates…but it was fun.

Congratulations to the Twins for outlasting the Tigers to get to the postseason. Now, go get some rest before your game in New York!

Celebrating O-Cab's key home run. Who knew he could FLY, too?

Payoff of paying attention to Florida State

So this crazy football game happened. If you missed it, basically Miami and Florida State went back and forth and Miami came back in the final moments and took the lead. Da U won 38-34.

I hate both teams. Despise them. Like really, the only way for me to win this game as a fan was if both teams lost. But hey, watching FSU isn’t the worst thing in the world with the guy they have under center. Christian Ponder is totally cute, right? It’s not just me? Help me decide.

Hike! Hellooooo Chris Ponder!

The Ladies… play MLB GM: Call up Lenny DiNardo?

If I had a nickel for every time I wanted to do Royals General Manager Dayton Moore’s job, I’d have…a shitload of nickels. I’d love to think GMDM totally reads all the Royals blogs out there, and considers our suggestions. That’s proooobably not the case at all, but just in case: Hey GMDM, call up Lenny DiNardo! He could help your bullpen! And he’s a lefty!

Oh, and…he looks like this:

Ben Roethlisberger…fix your TV? That’s the best you’ve got?

The charges* filed against Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger this weekend are serious, and in no way do the Ladies… condone such acts. Sexual violence is disgusting and pathetic, and should not be committed by anyone at any time. We doubt many of you would disagree.

One could also file a lawsuit against that shirt.

*If you haven’t heard, Big Ben faces counts of assault, sexual assault and batter, false imprisonment, false pretenses, fraud, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Story here. If true…not cool, Ben.

HOWEVER, I couldn’t help but smirk at the line he allegedly laid down on the Harrah’s employee who filed the suit. Continue reading

I was there (sort of): CWS championship series, Game 1

If you haven’t been watching the College World Series, tonight would be a good time to tune in to ESPN. Tonight is game two of a 3-game championship series between LSU and Texas, two teams who fully expect to play in Omaha every summer and who are generally fun to watch.

Rosenblatt Stadium didnt stay empty for long after this Tigers warmup!

Pre-draft photo gallery – your future MLB hotties?

It’s almost here, it’s almost here! The MLB draft is next week, and at this point we already know that the Washington Nationals will sign Stephen Strasburg, and the only mystery is how historically big his signing bonus and contract will be.

This man and his million strikeouts will be very rich in a week

This man and his million strikeouts will be very rich in a week.

But let’s take a look at a few of the guys who will be drafted after Strasburg, shall we? We might be seeing them in the Majors someday, after all… Continue reading
