Hey, fellas, and gals. Is there a form of fella to apply to the ladies? I really don’t know.
My name is Hal Phellis. I’m new to this webloggin’ thing, so you guys bear with me, OK?:) First thing you need to know about me is I love my Bravos!!!! (PS I always say Bravos because it’s fun!) I also like exclamation points and smiley things!!:) I’m a positive guy. And that’s how I think about the Bravos. (I’m looking at you, Brooksie Conrad! Come back better than ever!!!!! Your defense will be great this year. Just great! And you, Nate McLouth, with that cute long blond hair. HELLLO!!!! Nate’s gonna be great this year. Best center fielder we’ve had since Andruw. Who I heard is with the Yankees Oh, well. I’m sure he’ll do just fine.
Here goes my first article for those two fellas who operate the Office. What a great name!! They’re not always so happy and positive, though, to be honest with you. ;( Even though they don’t seem to much care for my pals — kidding. I wish!!! — Chip Caray and Bob Rathbun, they’re not really so bad.
Welcome to Spring Training 2011!! Is it really 2011 already? Can you believe it’s March????!! I’m still writing 2009 on my checks. DORKUS!
How time flies. And what a difference a year makes. Last year, we were all giddy about the J-Hey Kid. Look out, car, here comes a baseball!!!! This year it’s his buddy Freddie Freeman. Isn’t it great that they have a nice interracial friendship? I think it’s just great. And Freddie — how funny is it that our first baseman and manager have the same name, but spell it differently?!;) — anyway, I am SOOOOOO excited about Freddie Freeman playing first base. First — another “F word!” LOL.
And next to Freddie on the infield will be our new muscular second baseman Uggla. That’s kind of a funny name, but I love it!! He can smack that ball hard! I heard that he’s not a great fielder but I’m not going to buy into that stinkin’ thinkin’. We’re going to have a teriffic infield. I just know it.
Which brings me to Chipper. I saw where he got a little ticked the other day with his critics. You tell ‘em, Chipsy!! My prediction? How about 1999 all over again?! MVP! MVP! MVP!
And what can you say about Martin Prado, Tommy Hanson, Timmy Hudson, Dereky Lowe and Jairy Jurrjens? They all totally and absolutely and 127% ROCK MY WORLD!!
How’d I do fellas? And gals?:) GBWTWS!!! (Go Bravos Win The World Series!!)
