Sorry, but I have to post this. The Atlanta Braves won they're 10th striaght division title tonight " a new record in all sports in the U.S.", beating the Florida Marlins by a score of 20 to 3. If memorey serves me right two administrators " witch will remain nameless, they know how they are" on this board told me the Braves wouldn't do anything this year. Well surprise, surprise.

On another note, Barry Bonds hit his 71st and 72nd home run tonight. Beating Mark McGwire's record for most home runs in a single season.

Yeah...watching it can be boring, but playing it.....

There is nothing like the smell of the fresh cut grass in the outfield mixing with the smell of the leather from your glove, the way you can sometimes smell popcorn in the stands if the wind is blowing just right, the feeling you get as you stretch out and make the diving grab in deep left center....

It's the way the ball comes off the bat as you line a hit down the left field line, the dirt and dust that swirl around you as you slide into 2nd base. Or the feeling you get when you hit the ball just right, and 400 feet later, it falls....over the center field fence. :D

I remember standing out there, playing under the lights, your whole world consists of what's going on in front of you, and for a while, everything is simple, and the only thing that matters is the next pitch.....

That is why I love the game.

Maybe the same reason why you all like Cricket. Baseball is about strategy and going with the odds.

Hey Stacy, I with ya. I love the Braves. Who cares if they have a tendency to choke in the World Series, at least there consistent right?;)

As for Bonds, was it just me, or did it seem like it wasn't as big of a deal as when McGwire broke the record?

Yeah s-code I was at the game yesterday when the Braves sweeped the Astros. A good game if your a Braves fan.

No, it's not just you the press made a bigger deal with McGwire. But it may have been that way because him and Sosa was neck to neck for the record. If anyone noticed, back when McGwire broke the home run record. He never hit a home run against the Braves pitching staff. :) Of course Bonds did.:(
