Weekend Thrills

MlbextraI was excited to get back to LA yesterday and flip on the TV and discover that MLB Extra Innings was back on In Demand.  I promptly called Time Warner and ordered the package, so now I get to enjoy all the games this season without having to switch to DirecTV!

The good vibes kept up throughout the weekend as I watched today’s game and saw the Cards go on an offensive rampage.  What a relief to see Pujols jack two homers and get 5 RBIs!  Let’s hope this means he’s back to his old self.  Also thrilling was the terrific defense by our outfield.  Preston Wilson atoned for his 2 errors in the opening series vs the Mets with a spectacular running catch, and the usually shaky Duncan also made an acrobatic grab. And with the wind whipping around, no fly ball was a gimme today.  Duncan also homered and raised his avg. to .412!

The last bit of excitement this weekend was a star sighting – my dog briefly met Jake Gyllenhaal’s dog at a sidewalk cafe in Venice
