Monday Bantering: Happy Birthday Kate!

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies
This is how I imagine Kate’s birthday.

I got nothing today.

Well, a couple of things. First:


I hope you can find a way to celebrate in the strange world we find ourselves in. Maybe next year we can find a way to have a big meet up to celebrate with you.

There is this, but I don’t really want to talk about it:

Baseball seems to try to push me away. The season my Expos have an amazing team, they lockout the players and we don’t have a World Series.

Then they work really hard to kill off my Expos. I guess there was also many years of Gord Ash being GM, which really hurt my fandom, but that wasn’t really MLB’s doing.

Now the owners suggest the same proposal a few times and try to blame the players for not taking it. I wish there was some actual negotiations going on. Some give and take. But we seem to have both sides saying ‘my way or no way’ and no attempt to find a middle ground.
