    My old quasi-home...for 2.5 years...
    Distribution of wealth is not in any way democratic. It is, in fact, tyrannical, in that a very select few own almost all of it, while most have little to no access. To have a country that prioritizes wealth over individual rights is the antithesis of democracy.

    Is it weird that I go to Google street view and look at Joker Marchant Stadium frequently? Yes? No? Whatever whatever, must feed the addiction.

    If I am headed North of town, I drive through the complelx (completely) each way. Sure I know nothing is going on, but I'm at the ball park. That is enough even for a fleeting moment.

    Comment I haven't stressed: The JMS concession has changed hands. No idea of new meny or collectibles. Saw many new items being sorted last weekend. Also saw a lot of new inexperienced staff. The tall Gary is still there.

    Been trying to post this since 5:30 and I'm about to shut this machine down with extreme prejudice!

    Truck 1 arrived shortly before Noon.

    The first picture post of spring is the best post every year.

    As we crowded in the fan area enjoying the warm sunny morning, the grounds crew began irrigating the plants. Of course it was recycled water and the smell was like a waste treatment plant. Security is again totally disorganized and not allowing anyone to transit to the back fields unless you claim to be family.

    Alberquerque is not carrying a glove yet, so I'm sure he is not throwing.

    I find it somewhat silly how a simple picture of a moving van in central Florida can brighten my mood. But it did. And now I'm ready to go home, drag my mitt out, and see what kind of shape its in, even if I won't be using it anytime soon.

    Was Mitch Albom anywhere in the vicinity?
    My neighbor thinks I'm following or even stalking her, she is worried that I may be obsessed with her and any time she hears a noise in her house she is...purified? Oh, wait: petrified. Sorry, it's not easy reading a diary through binoculars from a tree.

Celebrities, golf and baseball all come together on Thursday, March 1 for the 17th Annual Major League Scramble at Cleveland Heights Golf Course in Lakeland.

    This is your opportunity to spend a day on the course with sports superstars of yesterday and today. This celebrity event not only features your favorite stars and world-class golf, but it also includes contests such as the longest drive, closest to the pin and the traditional putting contest along with multiple raffle drawings and prizes.

    To register, submit your Major League Scramble Registration Form. Be sure to send your entry promptly due to the heavy demand of this event.

    The event begins with registration at 10:30 a.m. and is followed by lunch at 11:30 a.m. The tournament officially kicks off with a shotgun start at 1:00 p.m. and later wraps up with a reception, awards presentation and raffle ticket drawings at 6:00 p.m.

    The Major League Scramble is just one of the week-long set of events leading up to the Tigers’ 76th Opening Day of spring training in Lakeland.

    The Detroit Tigers open their 2012 Spring Training season with a home game against Florida Southern at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, March 2 at Joker Marchant Stadium. For more information about the 17th Major League Scramble, please contact the Tournament Director, Brock Whitmyer at 863-834-2379 or Bill Tinsley at 863-860-2176

    We are heading down to Florida tomorrow and plan on making it to Lakeland on Thursday. Since the games won't start yet should we just head to the stadium for the workouts? What times are they usually on the field? I think I need a spring training primer:)

    They start between 9am-10am, the crowd of autograph seekers and fans usually start arriving starting around 8:30am or so.

    The last time I did that, the mitt was in better shape than I was.

    Great job, Roger. Is it your PC that's messing up or your card reader?

    Does anyone know of a sports bar in or near Lakeland that shows the Red Wings?
