Aaron Nola of the #phillies just threw a 4 hit complete game shutout of the #mets. Struck out 8 with no walks. 103 pitches.
Talk about a throwback.

FYI, someone just asked me, "Could you please put a CW on those US politics posts?"

I said no sorry,, just mute me.

I don't understand CWing political posts. And that doesn't mean you need to @ me explaining why. I know THEIR reasons, I just disagree with them and won't do it.

I respect CWs for other things, but not politics. Politics is news and people need to be aware of what's happening. It's not gory or violent, it's politics.

Kthxbye.

Someone apparently blocked me for asking them 2x to read my whole thread (total of 2 posts) before twice responding inaccurately after only reading the first one.

I really don’t get it.

I love that Angel Hernandez had a reputation as a terrible umpire back in the 1990s and 2000s and then people developed advanced methods of grading umpire performance and it turns out he stinks. Not many legends are able to adapt across eras like that

From @iboudreau.bsky:

When "tech" meant faster computers and smaller phones, it was exciting, you wanted to know what they were going to come up with next. Now it's a bunch of assholes trying to figure out new ways to charge you a subscription to look at the shittiest ads you can imagine.

Yeah, I’m not a fan of this kit. They could have gone with blue pants and hope that they would match the jerseys.

This isn’t hard to understand. Pushing for max effort and max spin on every pitch takes a toll. Greg Maddux threw 91 mph; give me a group of starting pitchers who know how to hit spots and change speeds any day. #MLB #baseball @baseball @baseball https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/columnist/bob-nightengale/2024/04/07/spencer-strider-shane-bieber-mlb-elbow-injury-tommy-john/73232661007/

Long night so far.

A call from my sister just after midnight that she’d taken mum to the hospital.

Been holding bedside vigil while sister goes home and gets some sleep. Doctors running tests and whatnot. Morphine for the pain. Machines that go “bing”.

It’s about 4:30am and mum’s snoring with a plethora of tubes and wires.

Eyes are heavy. Chair is uncomfortable. The nurses showed me where I could make a cup of coffee for myself.

Does anyone else have trouble doing one thing at a time? Like if I'm doing chores it helps to have a podcast or talk to someone, or watching TV, I need to do something with my hands, like a little handy craft, or a simple game. I love movies, but the movie has to be absolutely fascinating for me to want to go to a theater where I just need to sit there and watch. I have a large amount of tabs open on my phone all the time and I flit back and forth through a bunch of different things. Weed helps calm this down a bit.

When I’m puttering around in the yard or the garage I almost always have music on - usually jazz - or a baseball game on. Love #jazz and #baseball on the radio. Inside is a different story: usually listen to #classicalmusic

Since I've talked a lot about change today, I'll ask a question about it:

If you've changed something in your life or about yourself, how did you do it, and why?

sjharder,
@sjharder@sfba.social avatar

@RickiTarr
On July 18, 1983, I quit drinking. I entered an inpatient rehab unit and came to realize that my life was out of control. I would have lost everything had I not made that change: my career, my marriage, everything that I enjoyed. It wasn’t and hasn’t been easy.
I’ve been sober since then.

Alright, getting back into this Mastodon thing. Who should I follow?

sjharder,
@sjharder@sfba.social avatar

@maaikees
The thing I found is that it’s okay to follow a bunch of people initially and unfollow them later if you find their posts aren’t of particular interest to you. Here’s some of the folks that I enjoy following:

@GottaLaff
@StillRise1963
@lisamelton
@Deglassco
@RickiTarr
@3x10to8mps
@OldAndCranky
@skykiss
@NorcalGma2

Before crowbars were invented, crows would drink at home.

The local crowbar was shut down because of all the murders.

Police are still investigating the caws.
