Called up the homies and I'm askin' y'all
Which court are y'all playin' basketball?
Get me on the court and I'm trouble
Last week f---ed around and got a triple double
Freaking brothers every way like M.J.
I can't believe, today was a good day
--- Ice Cube, It Was a Good Day
As a baseball fan (or at least this baseball fan), it just doesn't get much better than yesterday.
The Twins, behind yet another dominant Johan Santana start, beat the Rangers for their fourth straight win. In the process, they put another game between themselves and the rest of the American League Central, because both the White Sox and Indians lost. In addition to all that, my second-favorite team, the Oakland A's, beat the Orioles and gained a full game on the Rangers, who lost to the Twins.
Taking it even further ... my main man Mike Cameron homered, I got to see Scott Kazmir make his major league debut (and get his first major league win), and Jason Bay, who I recently acquired in my Diamond-Mind keeper league, went 2-for-4 with a walk.
Hell, even Luis Rivas had two hits and an RBI!
To help me celebrate, please read this ...
