Well as all you guys know by now Spring Training has started and it has been
a little while since I have written a blog. Yes, I have been pretty busy and I am tired when I get home but that's no excuse (haha). Anyway, Spring Training has gone great so far. I have had a blast seeing all the guys and meeting all the new guys this year, we really have a great bunch of guys this year and I'm super excited to get these games rolling so we can get this season under way. The first couple days of camp we did the normal stuff: you know physicals and all the running tests and all that stuff, to see if we were all ready coming into spring. After the Spring Training speech from Manny we finally got to the playing part of the game, which all of us do best. Some of the guys that I have been talking to and hanging out with on and off the field are Luke Montz, Jordan Zimmermann, John Lannan, Ryan Zimmerman, Nick Johnson, Mike O'Conner, Joel Hanrahan, Tyler Clippard, Ian Desmond, Clint Everts, Brian Peacock, Devin Ivany, Fast Eddie, and Bailey (Lannan's dog). I mean there's more but hey, I can't list everyone on the roster. This Spring really has a different feel to it. There is a lot more energy and just different attitudes going around, everyone here belives that we are a good team and that last year is over and that we are going to win this year. It's an awesome feeling to be a part of this camp. Some of the other things going on around here is just a lot of media stuff. Next week we start games so that's another thing to look forward too. Besides that, everything else right now is going real smooth, my arm feels great and it's really great to see that this whole team is healthy and ready to start this 2009 year off with a bang. Also it's great to see all the fans out here. I mean there has been a lot of people coming everyday, even in this freezing cold weather ( 45 degrees haha). Also if you haven't filled out your Oscar poll: you have 'til tomorrow to do it. I will be keeping up with this every 2 to 3 days, no more going 2 weeks without blogging. Also, check out this thing I did with Ron Jon Surf Shop the other day, it was pretty fun to do.
†† Well lets see its been a couple days since my last Bally’s minute, so other than just lifting weights, throwing, and crushing people in Ncaa Football online not much new. †But one thing thats new is a song that has really been pumping me up while im lifting and I have been listening to about 35 times daily. †Its called Just Dance by Lady GaGa and Colby O’Donis, I need everyone that looks at this blog to go download it well actually go to ITunes and buy it so you dont get in trouble (haha) its a great song and im thinking about using it as my come out song when I hit.
hough he’s a NorCal guy. ¬†(Most of you guys won’t know what that means, but, anywho). ¬†I mean let me tell you a little story about Nick and I, and you be the judge. ¬†So he was hurt and there was like a month or so left in the season and he was cleaning out his locker, and I come over and he’s like “take whatever you want,” and I say “what?” and he’s like “take anything you want in my locker it’s the least I can do, you’re my boy.” ¬†So he ends up giving me all these bobble heads and wrist bands and stuff but the best thing he gave me was a pink mothers day bat. ¬†I’m talking about a one-of-a-kind thing. ¬†He said it was between me and his mom who got it and he gave it to me haha. ¬†So there you go right there. ¬†So this week my “Minute Man” was Nick Johnson and next blog it could be you. ¬†You guys have to give me reasons that you should be on Bally’s Minute. ¬†Honorable mention this week goes to: Ryan Zimmerman, Jeremey Plexico, Clint Everts,Colin Cowherd, (PS3: me online beating people in NCAA Football.)
