Stephone Mejia: The Unpredictable

2/3 Crazy Thoughts, 1/3 Sports

Hi Weekend, I Missed You

Do you know what today is? October 19, 2012.  When some networks say 10/19 they don’t mean 10/19. Abed say’s it best,  “…where to put 10/19?”

“It’s a feeling within us all” – Abed”

Today was supposed to be the greatest day ever. Not anymore, NBC decided against showing Community today, further postponing it. No love for one of the best shows since Arrested Development. When it comes back, I’ll be waiting. Until then I’ll re-watch the DVD’s.

I have a tiring long weekend in store. It should be fun and I’m pretty stoked.

Saturday:

I shall take my talents to Berkeley to watch Stanford and Cal for The 115th Big Game. It’s weird to watch a rivalry game so early in the season. With the creation of the Pac-12 Network and scheduling issues, this game got the short end of the stick.  Not only is the game early in the season, it’s also start early – Noon. I always felt that rivalry games should be played at night. The issues with TV contracts led this game to start at Noon.

Sunday:

Oakland will be the place to be for about ten hours. The Jags and the Raiders will do battle. This game is winnable  for the Raiders, along with the next two. If they handle business, they can be at 4-4 at the midway point. That is asking for a lot, so I have my hopes on very low.

Congratulations to the Cardinals for being one win away from the World Series! The Giants lose this series because they left about twenty men on base in Game 3.

The past two nights have been nothing but throwback music at the second job.

Here’s something for your ears…and eyes.

Happy Weekend!

Two – Day Hiatus

I’ve been doing new tasks at work so I haven’t been able to post. I’m good now and I am able to multi-task better.

The Giants are currently playing right now and the office is currently at a standstill. It’s pretty amazing how sports stops everything. If  my team was in the playoffs, I would be doing the same thing so I can’t complain.

It has been a good series and I can see the Giants winning in six or the Cardinals in seven. It hurts me to say that the Giants have a CHANCE of winning.

Last weekend was pretty good. I got to hang out with Seeking Style and we sang a bit. It was more her than me though. She has some nice flow on some songs, I was impressed.

I went to a Pumpkin Patch with King Alex on Sunday. He was a bit scared. The place is located close to the airport and the sounds of the planes were getting to him.

He survived though….

Just Chillin’

He has his first pumpkin!. Unfortunately, I accidentally deleted the picture. I apologize.

An interesting thing happened to me on Friday night. I guy approached me and was getting angry at for a little bit. Came out of nowhere. He mistaken me for somebody else. His friends were trying to tell him that but I guess the alcohol got to him.

My retaliation video….

Happy Hump Day

What To Do?

Follow away:

Twitter

Here are a few things you guys and gals can do this weekend, courtesy of me.

What to watch:  Argo

Ben Affleck continues to amaze me when he is behind to camera. Hopefully that streak resumes when I check this out on Sunday. The cast looks stellar as well.

Where to eat/drink: Red Rabbit

I’ve only been here twice and the drinks were awesome. Sacramento folks, I recommend ordering the West Indies Sour. For eats I recommend, via Seeking Style, the Rabbit Ravioli. The dish was small, but it was still delicious according to her.

Junk food of the day:

You can’t hate on the classics.

This weekend, I will be involved with one of these three things. Heck, all three might happen in one day.

I hope the Raiders shock the world against the Falcons on Sunday. If they get the victory, then it will be a successful weekend. If not? Well, then….I probably will not post anything on Monday.

Thank you Reds for allowing the Giants to advance to the League Championship Series, NOT!!!

Kudos to the Tigers for handling business against the A’s. I know I have been hating on the A’s but I do know that they have a good squad. They will be tough to handle next year.

Song of the week:

I looked it up, this song was released ten years ago. Still good though.

Story of my life, Grindin’

Happy Friday my peoples!

My Name Is Humpty

Well, thank you Reds for screwing everything up. Another thanks to the Tigers for letting the A’s live another day. I’m doing research for some posts next week which could be good. Today I nothing special to report besides me wanting the Giants and A’s to lose.

Allow me to amaze thee…

Something tells me I’ve posted this song before. If I did, I apologize for that. Either way, this song is a classic.

Halloween Costume Is Selected!

What. A. Weekend.

My wish is 1/3 complete. The Rangers got knocked out in the Wild Card game on Friday. As of today, the A’s and Giants are one lost away from calling it a season. Harsh? Yes. Awesome? YES. The timelines on my Facebook and Twitter pages were quiet as a result.

My motto: “If my team doesn’t win it all, YOUR(my friends) team doesn’t win it all.”

My weekend was amazing. What did I do? Nothing, I chilled…minus the baseball games this weekend. I don’t remember the last time my weekend was not busy. It was much-needed. I feel refreshed today. I caught up on some sleep and I did some working out. I didn’t even drink alcohol. A weekend of change.

I know this is starting off slow. I usually have something interesting to post but not this time.

Well…maybe one thing. Over the weekend, FOUR different people told me I should be Ron Washington, manager for the Texas Rangers,  for Halloween. I don’t know how I feel about that.  I try not to disappoint my people though. I already own a Rangers hat.

( Yes, I have been hating on the Rangers as of late but I collect MLB hats. I have about 45 hats.)

I would just need a jersey and a little powdered sugar. I guess I could also find somebody and buy the real thing.

Sharing is caring.

We shall see though. I might change my mind. I have two more weeks to decide on the a costume. As of now, Mr. Washington is in the lead.

Perfect video for Ron Washington…

“You know we keep that white girl, Christina Aguilera.”

I love knowing there is a song for EVERYTHING!!

Today is Monday.

Peace!

My Life

Today Is A Slow Day

FINALLY, one of my favorite teams won a game. Granted, USC did not start the game well last night. They gave up 14 points in a span of three minutes against Utah.  Utah was one of three teams I was scared to face this year. The trip to the Pacific Northwest is always a problem for USC. This year they are headed to the University of Washington. The last team?The home game against Oregon.

What a week it has been. Since SUNDAY, my Raiders lost, the Angels didn’t make the playoffs and the icing on the cake? BOTH division rivals(Rangers and A’s) made the playoffs. I work with Giants and A’s fans. I can’t wait for this postseason to be over. Like I mentioned before, the quicker the A’s and Giants get eliminated, I’ll be happy again.

This weekend should be a good one. Bay Area trip and just relaxing. I’m also taking a breaking a break from drinking. That’s how messed up this week has been.

I’m keeping this post short and sweet. It’s Friday. I’ll be back better than ever next week.

After reading my guest post, Josh said I have many female friends. Yes, it’s true.

My only respectable response?

Yeah, I’m that awesome.

Have a good weekend!

Oakland A’s Add One and Drop One

Today, the Oakland A’s optioned right-handed pitcher Andrew Carignan to Triple-A Sacramento. The move was made to clear a roster spot for left-handed pitcher Travis Blackley, who was claimed off waivers from the  San Francisco Giants yesterday.

Carignan was recalled from  the  Sacramento RiverCats last Friday for his second stint with the A’s. He appeared in two games, allowing two runs on two hits and three walks in 2.0 innings of work . Carignan is 1-1 with a 7.11 ERA in seven appearances  with Oakland and has issued eight walks in 6.1 innings.

Blackley began the season at Triple-A Fresno and was 3-0 with a save and a 0.39 ERA in four games, three of them starts. He was called up by  the Giants on May 1 where he posted a 9.00 ERA and .333 opponents batting average in four relief appearances with San Francisco before he was designated for assignment on Sunday.

Opening Week!

Clear skies, Cracker Jacks, Sunflower Seeds and BASEBALL! What more can one ask for. The Boys of Summer hit the field to as the 2012 MLB Season begins.

The A’s are back in the States and are hosting the Mariners tomorrow night.

Oakland and Seattle split a two-game series last week in Japan, before coming back to finish off their Spring Training slate. Since their last playoff appearance in 2006, the A’s have finished no higher than ninth in the American League in runs scored while boasting some of the league’s best pitching. This year’s squad will be led by two injury-prone veteran starters — Brandon McCarthy and Bartolo Colon — and several unproven arms in the back of the rotation and bullpen. The offense must score some runs with their young, yet unproven, talent led by Yoenis Cespedes.

The Giants head to Arizona to take on the defending NL West Champs, the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Giants hope to make the playoffs and are led by their two-headed monster of Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain. The squad struggled at times to generate runs, but the return of Buster Posey should help with that issue. Top prospect Brandon Belt made the Opening Day roster as well as a couple of rookies. The Giants focused on offense this past off-season and hopefully it will lead them back to the playoffs.

In Minor League news, The Sacramento River Cats begin today in Sin City as they take on the Las Vegas 51s.

The Cats roster is set but we shall wait a few games before we get any deeper.

My Predictions:

AL/NL West: LA Angels/SF Giants

AL/NL East: NY Yankees/ PHI Phillies

AL/NL Central: DET Tigers/CIN Reds

AL/NL Wild Card 1: TEX Rangers/ MIA Marlins

AL/NL Wild Card 2: BOS Red Sox/ ARZ Diamondbacks

ALCS: Angels over Tigers

NLCS: Phillies over Red

WS: Angels over Phillies in six games.
