dead men tell no tales...
...and drink no wine, and are therefore no good at parties

i actually worked out yesterday...
...yeah, went to the gym. No, really, I did. Half an hour on the elliptical, jogged 2.5 miles. Yes, really. I burned like 500 calories, that's not bad... well... it won't be bad as I start to eat better. I am too going to eat better! Yes, yes I am!
Okay now you're hurting my feelings.
In other news the A's came back from a 3-0 5th inning deficit to take the lead 4-3, then came back from a 7-4 6th inning deficit to win 9-7 last night, snapping both the White Sox' 8-game winning streak, and the A's own 29-inning scoreless streak. Thank christ. Kendall, Chavez, Kielty and Swisher each had two hits, and Chavez drove in 3 runs. Harden got roughed up though, giving up 5 runs in five and a third innings, raising his season ERA from a gaudy 0.44 to a still-impressive (and more maintainable) 2.10.
In fantasy news, I still hate the Yankees. However, A-Rod is on my fantasy team, and last night against the The Angels Angels, the quarter-billionaire went 4-for-5 with 3 home runs and an absolutely ridiculous 10 RBI. His performance was worth 27 fantasy points... the best team in our league for their entire best week score 275. I think my team is finally waking up (I've scored more points this week than anyone else in the league, and am winning my two games by margins of about 24 and about 58 points. If I win both games this week (against my dad (a division opponent) and Andy), I will pull to .500 on the season, and will have gotten progressively better each week (0-2, 1-1, 1-1, 2-0). Plus, I think my team only looks to get better, with guys like Swisher, McPherson, and Reed getting confidence in their playing time, guys like Renteria and A-Rod who were struggling (are, in the case of Edgar) but will be solid all year long, Rocco Baldelli coming off my DL in July, and the best hitter (Delmon Young) and best pitcher (Felix Hernandez) in the minor leagues sitting, waiting for their shots at The Show.
Working out rules. I just feel good. Even though it was yesterday afternoon. Today I'm gonna go back, do more elliptical and maybe, just maybe, attack a nautilus machine or two (they intimidate me).
