All Things Bubba

Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

A-Rod is MVP

To no one's shock, Alex Rodriguez is the AL MVP. (Does that stand for "Most Valuable Pain in the Butt"? ;-)

Mike Lowell has re-upped with the Sox, so he won't be playing 1B for the Yankees.

Both the Sox and the Yanks will be interested in Santana. Especially if Andy Pettitte retires.

And now for something completely different....

The Houston Ship Channel has been closed due to fog. (Not uncommon, but with oil prices nearing $100 a barrel and the Wall Street Journal running a front page story on "peak oil" today, well, expect to pay a lot for gas if you're driving over the river and through the woods to grandma's this Thanksgiving.)

The Galveston Harbor Webcam shows it is indeed foggy.

And then there's this link, which shows a Google Earth map of the Houston Ship Channel, with markers for each ship. You can track the ships in real time. Click on the markers to see the name of the ship, what kind of ship it is, and what it's doing. The oil tankers are magenta; if you zoom out, you can see a bunch of them anchored offshore, waiting for the fog to clear.

Absolutely nothing to do with baseball. I just thought it was a cool link.

So you can. I guess it's not completely off-topic after al! ;-D

Another 10 years of A-Rod fun. Oh boy... We need the Brooklyn Dodgers back.
