Toaster feels your pain.
It’s early in the season, but it’s never to early to obsess over your team.
Bwana’s Yankees walloped the Tigers 11-0 yesterday, and the Twinkies dug out win in the bottom of the 9th against the
Devil Rays. But the Mets made One Big Ickie against the Marlins, losing 7-4 after holding a 3-0 lead after 2 innings. The team often scores early and then decides to go on vacation for the rest of the game.
Toaster’s going to fire off a memo to remind the guys that there are 9 innings in every game and they have to play hard for every single one of them.

Toaster thinks it’s going to be a l-o-n-g season.

It’s emotionally draining being a Mets fan. And Toaster also cheers for the Yankees because they are Bwana’s team. (And — boy! — what a soap opera they’ve been the past few years!) But it’s important to support all Breakfast Foods so Toaster is going to take on being a fan of the Minnesota Twinkies.
Twinkies are a fine Breakfast Food. Loaded with calories, for sure, but it’s not like you’re going to eat five pounds of them every day.
They are light and sweet and a nice toastie color:

Bwana wrote about it, too: The Home-Run Menace:
There seems to be a jet stream, left to right, at all times.
Toaster really, really wants to go to a Yankee game, but Bwana is afraid that the wind will blow him away, wee small appliance that he is. Toaster enjoys travelling, but Bwana is afraid that Toaster will wind up on the Grand Concourse or maybe even in Yonkers. Toaster promises to not blow away. He’ll even bring his trusty anchor:
almost, not quite a shout-out. I thought of Toaster when I read it. Bwana is a wonderful writer, and not a bad photographer.
Bwana’s main job now is The News, but he’ll always be a Baseball Man to us.

Bwana took a nice picture of the Mr. Met sign:
Boy! Toaster is jealous. Mr. Met has his own office!
Toaster doesn’t have an office.
He does, however, have an assistant.
His name is “Bwana.”

The Yankees took a beating today but at least they didn’t have to have Nick Swisher, their Right Fielder, pitch for them again.
Toaster thinks it was awfully nice for the Yankees to let Swisher pitch. Maybe they will let a Certain Small Appliance take the mound someday ….

Not a good day for Bwana’s Yankees, My Indians beat them 10 to 2.
It’s the 7th inning in today’s game and the Indians have almost three touchdowns against the Yankees!
They’re not playing football?
(The Mets won today. Johan was pitching so we only needed one run. Toaster loves Johan.)
