BOGEY!!!!!!!!!!! Was that not the most exciting play of the season? Of course it was! It was really fun to see all of the genuine excitement from all of the young guys, all the way to Sergio Escalona jumping around like he was on crack!  It's moments like that make you realize how important a farm system is to a team.  You have to be able to get those type of moments from guys for cheap, and not rely on "veterany" guys who are getting paid a couple million dollars (I'm looking at you Jason Michaels).  It's when the farm guys provide those moments that really get the fan base excited, not the free agent role players.  Yes, this is just one game, but it really signals where this organization is headed; youth and building through the farm.  Now if we could just get Brad Mills to buy into that and start Bogey more instead of that Michaels guy.

Alright, with that said, I'm heading out of town today.  I'm visiting my old roommate and his wife for a day and then I'm headed to Texas to see my family for the first time in a few months.  I misread the Hooks schedule, and thought they were going to be in Little Rock this week and I was going to hit up a game, but they are home.  So there went that plan.  Had I gone a week earlier, I could have made it, but I had prior engagements that I couldn't reschedule.  I'll probably be back Monday night, I'm not sure yet, so I won't have any recaps up until Tuesday-ish.
