The Spring From Hell Contiinues....and the Gas Keeps on Rising
Well it seems I have nothing much to say of late...because the weather has been in the forefront of my conversations. The rains have been persistent and almost every overnight has been wet for the past 3 weeks, April was a disaster, and May is not starting out much better. As predicted, my NWC game at Allen East was washed out last night...however after clearing my calender, I got a call from a umpiring buddy, Ron, from Lima...he was scheduled to work a game at nearby Coldwatet but had taken a foul ball off the throat/neck area in a college game over the weekend, and was in some pain. He asked me to take his place, as Coldwater was still planning on playing their game. So, I headed the 8 miles south and west, and worked the plate for the Cavs vs Waynesfield game...a steady light rain came down throughout most of the contest, but we finished up the 13 to1...4 1/2 inning run rule Coldwater win. Soon after the game ended, the rains came down harder, and lasted throughout the night...causing the cancellation of tonight's WBL game at Van Wert vs St. Marys. I doubt if any, or at least very few in this area, will get played tonight.
The Osama Aftermath? The economy is still problem #1
While our Man-Child of a President gets the accolades and thumbs up from the adoring press(including Fox News) for bringing down Osama Bin Laden...the long term outlook remains unchanged. Sure, as a country we are all giddy that this piece of crap is laying at the bottom of the sea as shark food...but we have much more pressing concerns.
Obammy wants the economy to collapse, it's all part of his and his lemmings grand dream of a The Socialist States of America. Those that think otherwise are blind to what is going on, or just plain stupid. Gas in western Ohio is $4.20 a gallon...don't bet it won't be $5 by Memorial Day....and as it rises, the economy will continue to sink...Bank It!
So celebrate the death of the Islamic slug named Osama, but beware of his fellow Islamic evil doer, Obama....in the long run, he is far more dangerous....
