MARINERS MADE A MOVE

MARINERS MADE A MOVE

WARNING: As David and I are writing this the Mariners have just dropped the first game of the Angels series in unbelievable walk-off fashion, squandering two golden opportunities to take the lead in the 9th and 10th innings before Juan Nicasio blew yet another game. Ouch. I am not going to say anything about how that affects our mental state while writing this but we will *attempt* to move on from what has been a tragedy of a game. Jerry…

Mid-Season Report

Mid-Season Report

This is it guys.

TRADER JERRY

TRADER JERRY

Trader Jerry! What is your favorite Jerry Dipoto moment? The sixth of July, 2018 will be remembered for a very long time for Mariners fans, and it’s not because Felix had another troublesome start, not because Dee flashed his leather again in yet another acrobatic play, and not because the Mariners have played their first game in ten games that was not decided by three or less runs. Today was Trader Jerry day, and our very own Ol’ Reliable Trader…

Welcome!

Welcome!

Welcome to my blog! This blog will comprise mainly of two different topics that I enjoy the most: travel and sports Here’s a little information to get you started: I will be visiting Shanghai for the first time since I lived there for 6 months in 2010 (July 30th to Aug 10), which should provide more than enough experience for nostalgic and comprehensive content. Then I will be  making the short hop over to my home country, Thailand, from August…
