2012.. fade to softball black

No this blog isn't about a universal amusement park ride disguised as modern cinema in the form of the recently released 2012 Movie
(Yeah I saw that wack ass movie, it rained every weekend and I had nothing else to do).

The Year 2012 has become synonymous with impending doom/disaster as most everyone knows that the 2012 phenomenon comprises a range of beliefs/proposals, which prophesies that cataclysmic events will occur on Decemberr 21st or 23rd 2012. Not exactly a cheery view of the future eh?? Luckily scientists and astronomers have vehemently disputed the idea that a global catastrophe will happen in 2012.

More importantly, I know your asking (if your even still reading) what the Fuck does this have to do with softball/baseball????? Well yesterday the MLB Hot Stove moves of top pitchers Roy Halladay going to the Phillies and John Lackey signing with Red Sox was the off season equivalent of a 2012 baseball disaster event for my favorite baseball team the NY MESS.. I mean Mets... same thing
The Mets should take a que from many new age interpretations of the 2012 posits that, during this time, the planet and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation. In other words, 2009 was a disatser, lick your many player wounds, stockpile minor league talent, and rebuild to compete again in the year 2012.

On that note, I think I will actually take my own advice for once and try and learn from my mistakes and move on from my many disastrous 2009 moments. Now don't get me wrong, in the grand scheme of things "it is only a game" and the word disaster is only relative. 2009 was no 2012 end of the softball world experience, but overall I consider it very disappointing season on many different aspects - performance, weather, winning, politics, etc. but I will try and live in learn in 2010 and beyond.

On a positive note, at the end of the 2009 softball season, my Friends Gubi and Gil
treated me to a softball vacation in Puerto Rico after Thanksgivingwhere I got to purge some 2009 demons and look forward to playing and blogging in 2010 and beyond.

Enjoy the Roy Halladay - Met shell shock moment there sorry :))))))))))))) ... I mean Enjoy the Holidays Everyone and Like Jay-Z raps "if you can't respect than your whole perspective is wack maybe you'll love me when I fade to black"... see you in 2010
