Yeah, that's a better pitching pose and facial expression than you see on many actual baseball cards. Good shot there.
RevDMV, what's the setting for that pic? The other kids are also wearing Angels gear, is this a fantasy camp of some kind? Or just a bunch of kids who happen to be Angels fans?
Aren't Little League teams allowed to use MLB names and logos?

Correct. I played on the Royals and the Orioles when I was in Little League.

Hmm. That's interesting. I had no idea they did that (I never played Little League).

I'm pretty sure the MLB leases out the names.

You should seriously go into full-time business with these things.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

It's our Little League team, this year we're the Angels. (My Dad's retirement gig is working at Angel Stadium so that adds to the fun...)


Edit: Yea MLB lets the Little League use the team names.

^ Cool! What does your dad do at Angel Stadium, BTW? (That sounds like a really cool retirement gig to have! )

Re: PICTURE POST II!

He coordinates the parking in the VIP lot. Basically drive scooter around and hob nobs with people parking before the game.

He's always liked talking to anyone so it's the perfect gig for him. He know the owner and most of the sky box owners(we've been invited to sit in the in number one box a couple of times by the owners of that box, real nice people)

He has some fun stories about Billy Bean and some of the other GM's and past players that have come through as well.

My mom passed this spring, so I'm glad he has this to give him a place to hang out and people to spend time with.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Back home from Comicpalooza. Here are some snaps from the weekend. Sorry about the poor quality; I'm a sucky photographer with a crappy camera. Hence, the results.

things around the con:


Some of the Lego sculptures:


Trek actors:




Looking down on the first half of the dealers room:


Actor Joseph Gatt talking to a cylon


A Trek necklace I bought for myself. The picture doesn't do it justice. It has that layered-glass look, with all those lovely colors.


OH, and one last thing....for Mr. Laser Beam, the view from my hotel room:
