Kirbir's Pictures of the Week

New, 10 comments

This past week, the 2009 season of baseball got into full swing (pun intended) with the start of the World Baseball Classic. In the coming weeks, as more of those games are played, I hope to have a post devoted specifically to pictures from the WBC. Until then, you'll have to settle for the only two pictures that I enjoyed enough from it to bother posting.

As usual, photos taken from Yahoo! in one way or another.

Yes, tiny fan, the real baseball season will start soon. Hang in there!

 

I'm off to go enjoy a spring break full of work, homework, and trying to recover from both midterms and a nasty cold. Hopefully everyone remembered to switch their clocks ahead last night. Unless, of course, you're in Arizona where they don't believe in such nonsense. For the rest of us, the Brewers' Cactus League games will now start at 3:05 rather than the 2:05 we've gotten used to.
