Controlling our own Destiny: EDIT WITH Sweet Joke at bottom

2009 Ducks Baseball, NABA, pittsburgh NABA
{Ducks: Practice Friday at the Pitt Field at 6:30}
“One thing I know is that I know nothing.”

Starting with the game against the Eagles on Saturday the Ducks (12-5) have seven games remaining, including two against the Black Sox (12-4) who have a game at hand, and are 1/2 game ahead of us for the 2nd seed in the playoffs and the all important first-round bye.
We have to win on Saturday to keep pace with Kenny Powers and the Black Sox, we can’t count on the Sox losing.

The Gray Bats (3-15) are planning a victory parade after defeating Don Henley and Co. (4-10)
9-1 last night.

The Eagles will not want to fall out of the 5th spot, we will get their best on Saturday and we just quacked by in a 3-2 thriller last game, thanks in part to a stellar pitching performance
By The Eagles’ Joe Walsh, who threw last night against the Gray Bats.

The Bulldogs are calling out the Ducks and Owlz’es MVP candidate Scott Dunn on their blog.
They are full of malice and hate over there.

I guess losing 2 games to fall to 12-5 1s considered a tailspin for a 7 win team that should have won 11 games by now.


Wonder if they won last night against the new look Matadors?
Did the new Matadors’ regime also [allegedly] offer bribes?
I’m glad all those guys get a chance to play.

Party at Guthrie and Keeper of the Helmets’ on Saturday
all ducks blog readers are welcome.

lots of booze and meat.
hopefully a quality ratio of women to men.
Dr. Jones’ sister is a “maybe” at this point.
It’s a cookout

Ok here’s the joke

It is the month of August, a resort town sits next to the shores of a lake. It is raining, and the little town looks totally deserted. It is tough times, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit. Suddenly, a rich tourist comes to town.

He enters the only hotel, lays a 100 dollar bill on the reception counter, and goes to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one.

The hotel proprietor takes the 100 dollar bill and runs to pay his debt to the butcher.

The Butcher takes the 100 dollar bill, and runs to pay his debt to the pig raiser.

The pig raiser takes the 100 dollar bill, and runs to pay his debt to the supplier of his feed and fuel.

The supplier of feed and fuel takes the 100 dollar bill and runs to pay his debt to the town’s prostitute that in these hard times, gave her “services” on credit.

The hooker runs to the hotel, and pays off her debt with the 100 dollar bill to the hotel proprietor to pay for the rooms that she rented when she brought her clients there.

The hotel proprietor then lays the 100 dollar bill back on the counter so that the rich tourist will not suspect anything.

At that moment, the rich tourist comes down after inspecting the rooms, and takes his 100 dollar bill, after saying that he did not like any of the rooms, and leaves town.

No one earned anything. However, the whole town is now without debt, and looks to the future with a lot of optimism .

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the United States Government is doing business today.

Quack, Quack
