Notes From The Booth

I have a few random things that I wanted to let the blog world know about today. Nothing earth shattering, just a few pieces of information. First, I have to let you know that the day started out splendidly. At 7:18 A.M., I won $12.50 on the Money Wheel on WLIP! On top of that, I also won a $10.00 gift certificate from Something Different. It’s billed as a sports fan’s gift shop. Nice, huh? I guess I will have to keep listening to Bill Lawrence's excellent Wake Up Call show.

Speaking of sports, last night the Bada Bing! Fantasy baseball league held it’s annual draft. 2011 marks the 6th season of our league. It has been called the Bada Bing! each year except the first when it was the Big Sticks League. Here is what my draft looked liked:

Satriale’s Meat Roster

1. Ryan Braun, Brewers OF
2. Prince Fielder, Brewers 1B
3. Tim Lincecum, Giants SP
4. Dustin Pedroia, Red Sox 2B
5. Yovani Gallardo, Brewers SP
6. Brian McCann, Braves C
7. Andre Ethier, Dodgers OF
8. Cole Hamels, Phillies SP
9. Alexei Ramírez, White Sox SS
10. Casey McGehee, Brewers 3B
11. Jonathan Papelbon, Red Sox RP
12. Gio González, Athletics SP
13. Jacoby Ellsbury, Red Sox OF
14. Jonathan Broxton, Dodgers RP
15. Delmon Young, Twins OF
16. John Danks, White Sox SP
17. Paul Konerko, White Sox 1B
18. Miguel Tejada, Giants 3B,SS
19. Derek Lowe, Braves SP
20. Aubrey Huff, Giants 1B,OF
21. Vernon Wells, Angels OF

I am pretty happy with it. Not only was I able to get Braun and Fielder in the first two rounds, but I also picked up Gallardo and McGehee in later rounds. Four Brewers and NO Cubs. Outstanding!

Since I am in such good spirits, I have decided to do something nice. Starting today, the first two people who buy my book will receive a “Some Kenosha Softball” cap. That’s right, for only $15.00, you not only get my book, but also an embroidered baseball cap like the one I am wearing in my blog picture.

So get over to Sister Act Painting and Creative Treasures on 3816 Roosevelt Road and be one of the first two people to pick up a copy of my book. The store hours are:

Monday, Wednesday, Tuesday and Friday – 11:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. Saturday – 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. The store is closed Sunday and Tuesday.

One last thing, evidently most of you have not seen my new poll located to the right of this blog. It asks you to name your favorite Match Game celebrity. So far, only three people have participated in this very important survey. There are only a few days left, so please do your part!

Okay, you have your assignments – buy a book (and get a hat) and do my poll. Until next time…from the booth.

I will pass on the hat - let someone else by a copy of your book and as for the vote I just picked the name that I first set 'eye' on - Fannie !! lol

Sue, you would like Fannie. She's a real hoot. And I do believe that were the first person to purchase my book!

I always thought the best way to get a free hat was to be faster than the guy from whose head you just grabbed it. Not many things more sad than having just 2 beers in the refrigerator. Why even start?

Papa, how many Spotted Cows did you think you could fit in your refrigerator? Sheesh…
