Yeah...I'd Tote That

The smell of a quality, leather handbag is like a fine perfume to this baseball gal’s nose. But how much BETTER would it’s scent be and with how much MORE STYLE would I have, as I tote this BASEBALL GLOVE HANDBAG??
LOVE IT. WANT IT.
But would I take on the challenge of making one for myself? Hmmm. I have made a handful of repurposed handbags/totes/purses but I don’t know…

For now the only way for me to ‘swipe this bag’ is by cash or charge.

Later this summer, I will share the baseball style bags I have created.

Relaced Love,

Riding the Pine and Don’t Mind

RIding the Pine and Don't Mind

Bench your behind in style in this unique chair for the baseball fanatic. The creator combined bats and a couple of bases in the seat area for comfort.
What do you think? Would you put this at your home field in your man cave, sports-themed room or rec room?
I personally think it’s clever, stylish and well it’s BASEBALL so what’s not to like? However, I think this unique chair isn’t built for comfort but more for conversation 🙂

Alright, my friends and followers….I began this little blurb before I became sick and  felt like staying in bed for the rest of my life. That being said, please note that Cabrera did NOT turn 31-years-old yesterday. However, our Triple Crown Winner came back with a vengeance during last night’s game against the Tiger’s division rivals, the Chicago White Sox. Miggy went 3-for-5 with an RBI double and a 2-run home run. His double went into right center field gap and his homer went into the seats in right field. I continue to hear, “Miggy’s back” but folks, did the man ever REALLY leave? Nah, he did not leave the building, however, the man’s ability to send a baseball out of any MLB stadium will continue to amaze us.

My family and close friends know I find Miguel “Miggy” Cabrera absolutely fascinating as a one of baseball’s most talented players, ever. In honor of his amazing abilities as an athlete and incredibly sharp baseball mind, as well as him turning 31-years-old, I thought I would share this photo which compares Miguel to Hank Aaron. I mean, wow, I’d say both men are in good company?

Anyways, I am in the middle of raking leaves (blah) and felt motivated to complete this during my quick break. Time to throw my Detroit Tigers sweatshirt back on and finish the yard before I watch Cabrera go yard tonight at Comerica. Yeah, I know…but his love of the game, his ability, his baseball smarts, his sense of humor…we get to watch this baseball player in action and I count it a privilege.

A somewhat-related trivia regarding Miguel: Did you know he wears two different cleats, one for home games and one for away games? And if you do, could you identify them? (And yes, yes I can but I was curious if others pay attention to this type of thing). I am tomboy yes, but I do appreciate coordinating outfits and style  as well!

 

Belle Was Placed On The DL

Belle Was Placed On The DL

That “DL” in the title of this post stands for the disabled list, for those of you following this sporty and witty baseball blog of mine. I have never been so sleepy in all my thirty-six…nope, I mean my thirty-seven years on this earth! I did not bring myself into the doctors not because I don’t have insurance or because I don’t have the time, but actually due to I strongly prefer not to go to the doctor when I’m sick. I always tell myself (and others that are irritated around me) that “it’ll pass and I will be fine.” Sooo, I was placed on the disabled list due to a fever, swollen glands and constant tiredness for more than a week. I am back and kicking around on the world wide web now, headache not so bad tonight!

I often Google vintage baseball articles or images and tonight as I was Googling (pretty sure that’s a verb?) I came across this humorous saying. Can you relate to it? I mean shoot, I have yelled at my Phillips television as I’m watching the Detroit Tiger’s baseball game plenty of times. Everyone remember the infamous Jim Joyce (umpire) and Armando Galarraga blown first base call to ruin his perfect game, right? In fact, if you begin typing in Armando’s name or Jim Joyce’s name, Google connects them automatically-those two men will forever be connected from that. Let’s recall though that Galarraga was amazingly gracious and forgiving of Joyce. And Joyce even shed some tears in later interviews, understanding he cost that young man a perfect game in the record books. Too bad he didn’t have the instant replay that this 2014 MLB season has, eh?

Anyways, baseball fans, it has just struck midnight here in Michigan and I am still yet trying to recover from this illness (whatever it was) and I should get to bed.
Remember, please look for the upcoming post in which I discuss one of the MLB’s best pitchers in the game of baseball today. I’ll be discussing basically his pitching mechanics and reveal one of the most important things he has going for him in which I believe make him an outstanding pitching and one that batters do not wish to compete against.
Time to turn the stadium lights off and go to bed!
Good night!

Battling Bipolar Disorder One Inning At A Time

Battling Bipolar Disorder One Inning At A Time

Struggling with bipolar disorder can create solid innings in life to disastrous innings in which a person would just rather forget. Remember living with this mental illness is ongoing process and that a person is never “healed”. From medication changes, mental health professional visits and emotional mood swings, a patient needs to always remain aware of their condition.
A quote I heard recently:
“I overcome it (bipolar disorder) by never letting it out of my sight.”
In other words, you (or someone you know) constantly are aware of your moods, medications and medical professional visits.
One game at a time.

Hat-Head Covered With The D

Hat-Head Covered With The D

Any of my other gals or guys who love baseball (and it doesn’t have to be Detroit Tigers 🙂 ), throw their baseball hat on when you need to run to the store quick? My day has been blogging, tweeting, chatting baseball as I watched the 2nd Detroit game of the season and haven’t had time to jump in the shower yet! Put my favorite baseball hat on and maybe add a ponytail, just maybe.
Next post I will be discussing the manager’s challenge rule. The Tiger’s Brad Ausmus went 2/2 during today’s game when he chose to challenge the umpire’s first base calls.
Gotta go…where’s my hat?!
