I was glad to find out that they sit around and talk, drink and eat. Two out of three of those things will be available. Not sure about the drinking part.
Columbus has a new/old Pizza Place. The Pizza Shak is back in their new/old place. YEA!! Let the pizza wars begin! DJ and I were talking about favorite food and she said her ultra favorite food is Spaghetti with her guilty pleasure being cans of Ravioli. I'm a Pizzaholic but I can not turn down Vienna Sausages.
For Brewer fans PECOTA now has them in 3rd place with 85.7 wins and a 28% chance of making the playoffs. They actually have a greater chance of winning the division then making the Wildcard.
Something for baseball/weather buffs about Yankee Stadium. Lots of theory's about why there were 26 home runs at the new Yankee Stadium. Here is one theory
Although the field dimensions of the new stadium were designed to be exactly that of the old stadium, the shell of the new stadium is shaped differently.
Meteorologists estimate that the angle of the seating tiers in the new stadium could have a different effect on wind motion across the field. Here is the old Stadium.
and the new one
The old Yankee stadium had more vertically stacked tiers and a large upper deck, acting like a solid wall in effect, which would cause the wind to swirl more and be less concentrated. The new Yankee stadium's tiers are less stacked, making a less sharp slope from the top of the stadium to the field. This shape could enable winds to blow across the field with less restriction.
In addition, the slope of the seating would also lead to a "downslope" effect in the field which, depending on wind direction, would tend to cause air to lift up in the right field. Fly balls going into right field during a gusty west wind would be given more of a lift thus carrying the ball farther out into right field.If the stadium seating tier shape is indeed the main issue, games will only be affected during times with the winds are from a westerly direction and above 10 mph. This typically occurs during the spring and the middle to late fall. The calmer weather during the summer should lead to a smaller number of home runs. In the meantime, the home run derby may continue.
American Idol watchers. When our judges decided to use their "SAVE" card on Matt 3 weeks ago I thought it was a terrible bone-head blunder. Too early and on the wrong guy. It was meant to be used in case something REALLY DUMB happened like what happened to Chris Daughtry (not Chris Daugherty who won Survivor: Vanuatu). Daughtry was a leader in the competition but then it seems fans became overconfident knowing he was going to win. BAM - he was gone to the shock of EVERYONE!
So Idol suits came up with a new rule IN CASE this happened again. Once a season they could SAVE someone. So 3 weeks ago THEY SAVED MATT!!
Last night we see that Adam (who will win) is in the bottom two with Matt and I'm betting the judges were wishing they had that SAVE card to play again.
Hope everyone is flocking to West James Gallery and Sharrow Drugs to pick up the new postcards.
