I couldn’t have asked for anything better on my birthday yesterday. I normally don’t celebrate birthdays. I usually just go to an A’s game. But since I live in Los Angeles now, I can’t do that. But with the A’s wearing those gorgeous Oakland Oaks throwbacks (which I want), I couldn’t be happier after that walk-off win.
The A’s are at .500 and are only 2.5 games out of the last Wild Card spot. I’m so excited!
But now that we’re at the All-Star Break, I am looking forward to tonight’s Home Run Derby. This is one thing that I feel that can get really boring and annoying (with Chris Berman’s “back-back-back-back”) but no matter what anyone says, home runs are always fun to watch.
So with that, here are my predictions for the derby.
