Alex Carson's only sometimes emotional ballyhooing about the Mariners and baseball
My sports life has been all about timing.
My dad was born and raised in San Leandro, just outside of Oakland. Fortunately for me, Al Davis moved the Raiders to LA, my dad got red-faced angry, and I was raised a 49ers fan. Whew, that was close.
In 1995 we moved to Seattle. The Mariners go on a magical run, and 15 years later I'm still hooked. The magic can return now. No, seriously.
The timing thing has worked against me, too. I was so mad at the Mariners I didn't renew the domain for my Felix Hernandez blog that I poured a large number of hours into. Then he won a Cy Young, and my first thought was "I should blog! ...oh, wait." The baseball Gods don't like quitters.
I'm also a lead moderator and app tester for a gaming site. A frequent poster on several Mariners and other baseball blogs. I coach a Junior High team. A true baseball junkie. I'll take it in any form.
