What's going on, Thursday-wise...

For God's sakes, McDonald's - for shame:

Think of the layers and layers of departments this cup went through, and NO ONE caught the very egregious and very obvious grammatical error. It made me not enjoy my soda!! I tried to complain here, but they kept asking for a valid email address, which I kept providing but it would not take it. Par for the course. Or "Par 'o the course".

On to less irritating subjects!!

If it's April, it must be GYAC Baseball Season!! This year, Matthew valiantly volunteered to fill in as a coach (they were one coach short, and we bore the brunt of that situation horribly last season). He was originally assigned the GYAC PHILLIES!!! But then the uniform company ran out of uniforms, so they are the Orioles again. Hearkens back to the '07 season! We had first choice of uniforms, so I made Gus take #5, which is of course the number of the second-best 3rd baseman of all time. (Debate and discuss....). They also didn't get the mighty Cork Tavern as a sponsor - they will be the "Patrick McDermott Plastering" Orioles this year. Every year, I dream of sponsoring a team. The "Momogus Knits Patterns" Orioles!!! How hilarious would that be?? Well, once I build up the old bank account.....A girl can dream, can't she?

Gus will be catching this season - check out how awesome he looks!!

I've always had a soft spot for catchers - Boonie, Tony Pena, Bench, Dutch, Sandy Alomar (there's no rhyme or reason). Opening Day is this Saturday, for which they close down all of Glenside, which is the best thing in the world. More pictures then.

I jumped onto the February Lady Sweater bandwagon. We're doing a Knit-Along next month and I thought I'd knock one out, so I could help people out. Here it is in all its halfway-done, sleeve-stitches-on-holders glory:

I'm also frantically trying to get my Easy Shell patterns finished, so we can start selling them. The samples are in the window at the store, and people have started inquiring about them....

How about Joe Astroth? And Walker Cooper (although he was a little bit tight with autographs)?
