I have been a long time lurker 'round these parts and thought now would be a good time to jump in.  A little about me:  I have lived in Tulsa, OK my entire life and have always loved America's best game -- Baseball.  Of course I love football too (and hockey - go Blackhawks!) and living where I do I am a huge Dallas Cowboy and Oklahoma Sooner fan.  However, as much as I love football it will always take a backseat to baseball in the battle for my affections.  I grew up as a KC Royal fan and I still avidly follow them.  In fact while growing up I never could stand the Cubs (or the Braves) becuase they were always on TV and I got sick and tired of seeing and hearing about them.  That all changed in the early 90's when my dad got laid off from his job as a mechanic at American Airlines.  In order to keep his job he had to make a move to the windy city and one summer while visiting him we took in a game at Wrigley.  I don't remember the exact year (I think it was somewhere around 93 or 94) but I do remember setting on the first base side and watching Mark Grace and the Cubs take on Felipe (and Moises) Alou's Expos.  It was glorious and ever since I've been hooked and bleed Cubbie blue.  What sucks the most for me is that l live in the middle of a huge cardinal hot spot.  God I hate those people....

 

Anyway,  I'll leave it at that for now.  I just wanted to say hi to everyone and introduce myself a little bit.  Hopefully I can be a meaningful contributor to the community here.

Welcome, Okie. Just don't forget to put your toys away when you're done. Someone forgot one time and now we have a damn puppet running around.

I assumed you would have boycotted that song due to the first line.

Is that the opposite of having an iron deficiency?

Nice shirt. Kind of a small iron though, isn't it? Or, really big hands.

Fucking beats me.  I haven't used an iron since ... the 90's, maybe.

If the ironing board wasn't such an inadequate accessory to go with it, I would probably have ironed more items in my day.  But I'm done.  The last time I ironed anything was in some overpriced hotel at least 20 years ago.  Also, that picture with the hands...  that's disturbing for many reasons.  I wish I hadn't seen that.
