Pinger is a website/service that I was recently made aware of.  Basically it's a service you sign up for that lets you send people voicemails.  You call the number they give you and say who you want to leave a message for.  Then you record a message and your recipient gets a text message letting them know they have a pinger message.  They are then able to call and check the message. 

I like this because sometimes there are times I want to call somebody to let them know something, but I don't really want to or have the time to have a conversation.  I haven't yet decided if this Pinger thing is a good idea.  It's more personal than a text message but possibly less convenient and definitely less personal than an actual phone call where I "risk" having to talk to the person.  So if you get some text saying you have a Pinger message, you know what it is.


Schilling Blogs

First - yes, the A's had a crap game yesterday.  I blame Bobby Crosby.  He needs to deliver this season or the fans will definitely be calling for his head.  I imagine if he has a subpar season, by the All-Star break we may be hearing some rumblings.

Curt Schilling had a crappy game yesterday too - I think he was somewhere around 70 pitches before the second inning ended.  He blogged about his outing here.  If you're a baseball fan you may enjoy reading Curt's blog.  During Spring Training he put up a lot of posts answering different questions, etc.  He writes pretty well and it's pretty cool to be able to read the opinions/thoughts of a baseball pro (a great one no less) from the inside.


Play Ball

Hallelujah, it's opening day!

Today is the day every baseball fan thinks their team has a chance. Today the sun shines a little brighter, the birds sing a little clearer, and the sky looks a little...bluer. I love baseball season and I'm so glad it's back. The A's begin their defense of the AL West crown today against a team they completely dominated (17-2) last year. Let's hope the Mariners don't make up for lost time this season.

Today Danny Haren faces "the King" Felix Hernandez. I'm up at school today but you can rest assured that on my break I will find my way into some Mill Valley sports venue (should such a place exist) to watch my beloved green and gold take the field.

This season I am hoping to see Travis Buck deliver on the hype, watch Harden stay healthy all season, and see Nick Swisher turn into a bonafide supahstar.
