Damn you sportscasters! Damn you all to hell! I saw Andres Torres first! I picked him out last year as a baseball stud and I became a fangirl – now you all jump on my bandwagon! Ha – I say – ha ha! Really, ask my husband…the very first time I saw him play with the San Francisco Giants, I said, Who is that man and why doesn’t he get more playing time? Like, why isn’t he starting every game? Of course he had some injuries last year, but anybody with half a brain could see what kind of athlete he is!
Thursday’s San Francisco Chronicle – The Sporting Green headline – Torres, as in torrid.
I like it – Torrid Torres! On Wednesday, against the Marlins, he had a Splash Hit. He now has two. My other favorite Giants player, Aubrey Huff, also has two. So…here are my guys – and they have been since the first time I saw them – Andres Torres, Juan Uribe, Aubrey Huff, Travis Ishikawa, and Jonathan Sanchez. Yeah, sure, everybody likes The Freak, Matt Cain, and Brian Wilson. Man, that Bumgarner can throw and Buster Posey is amazing - why the heck wasn’t he brought up sooner??? Hmmmm??? I like every guy on that team, but I love me some Andres Torres!
Yes, there is no contradiction…you can write science fiction/romance and still love baseball. My guys have always been baseball players.
So…Thank you very much Steph, at Fangs Wands and Fairy Dust, for letting me take over your blog yesterday and many thanks to those of you who stopped by.
Today, Friday, I’m over at Anna’s place. She’s posted an interview with The Thousand Year Empress, Aja Bokina, a Daughter of Persephone. Come see what makes her tick and maybe win an e-copy of this fun, sexy, romantic, kick ass science fiction book. http://s7anna.blogspot.com/
