Ever wondered how the shuttle gets home once it lands at a secondary landing site? You can’t really ship it via FedEx. 🙂
What a great game last night!
Nathan intentionally walked Cano to get to Melky for the last out, but Melky hit a nice outfield single to score two runs and win the game. Now, where’s all of the people who were crying “trade Melky” earlier in the season? He’s really turned it around so far and done well for the team — this is his second walk-off of the year (first was the walk-off homer on Apr 22).
On the bad side, Damon getting ejected was pathetic. The calls on both at-bats were definitely off; the first one was over the belt and crossed the batter’s box line — how was that a strike? To be fair, calls were bad for both teams. But why would you toss somebody for arguing calls? Damon never touched the ump and he was ejected very quickly — maybe he hurt the ump’s feelings or something…
Also, we really didn’t look that sharp at the plate, but we never gave up and won it in the ninth. A win is a win — take it anyway you can get it! 🙂
He does a great interview; love the shirt (even if it’s wrong! :))
//thinks we should all be nicer to Whhhil Whhheaton…
Under GM’s new restructuring plan, they will be cutting 21,000 jobs and eliminating the Pontiac brand:
That bums me out; I hate it that so many people are losing their jobs, especially now. Also, I had hopes of buying a new Firebird or TransAm sometime in the future — looks like that’s out the window now…
This type of news makes me glad to be driving a Ford; to date, they have not gone the bailout route.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
I’ve been a customer of MLB.tv for three years now. And every single year, a new adventure is born.
Initially, I never got the high-def (NexDef) feeds to work; going to fullscreen meant choppy video and audio, regardless of the quality level that I chose. However, the non-NexDef feed worked quite well and didn’t look that bad on my 19″ widescreen television.
I recently built a new computer and (shock surprise!) NexDef works nearly-flawlessly on it, even in fullscreen. There have been exceptions: some nights MLB has problems across the board (all games have issues) and some nights there are problems with individual game feeds (like last night’s YES feed — I had to watch the game on NESN). But on the whole, it has worked pretty well for me on the new machine.
That leads me to believe that MLB’s suggested system requirements is not correct for NexDef fullscreen. I think you need a pretty beefy machine (with a decent video card) to get NexDef to work correctly.
I will say this: when NexDef works, the quality is amazing! It looks much better than SD programs from Comcast and rivals the HD cable signals.
Once major complaint, and this is about Flash and not MLB: if you watch a flash video fullscreen, clicking on the desktop (I have triple-monitors now) causes Flash to lose the fullscreen. There is a fix for it, though, so I’m quite happy now!
At least, I will be when they get the YES feed fixed! 🙂
