Play Ball!

I always hear the robot voice of one of my favorite NES games, BaseWars when I hear that.

Play ball, motorcycle wheelie deathbot! If you put in TERMINATOR 02 in the EDIT B team, all your players are Bonds jacked up. Where were we?

Oh yeah. Hi everybody, we're RK and WV, and we run this here blog. If you haven't been here before, what we try to do is liveblog each game and try not to focus too much on the game, instead making inside jokes, obfuscating player nicknames, and discussing continental philosophy. Let us appropriate some of the current political climate and make fun of it, delegitimization for everyone!


RK was born in Hawaii on August 4th, 1961. His father, RK Sr., was born and raised in a small village in Kenya, where he grew up herding goats with his own father, who was a domestic servant to the British. RK's mother, Ann Dunham, grew up in small-town Kansas. Her father worked on oil rigs during the Depression, and then signed up for World War II after Pearl Harbor, where he marched across Europe in Patton's army. Her mother went to work on a bomber assembly line, and after the war, they studied on the G.I. Bill, bought a house through the Federal Housing Program, and moved west to Hawaii.


WV was raised in a middle-class family in the middle of America. From that classic suburban childhood in Park Ridge, Illinois, WV went on to become one of America's foremost advocates for children and families; an attorney twice voted one of the most influential in America; a First Lady of Arkansas who helped transform the schools; a bestselling author; a First Lady for America who helped transform that role, becoming a champion for health care and families at home and a champion of women's rights and human rights around the world.

So y'know, pick one of us over the other, or whoever emerges victorious! Or you could just go for that other blogger...

But seriously folks, you'll get to know us all too well... more than you ever wanted to know as the season progresses. I'm excited about baseball, now lets watch some young guys defy expectations.

I missed you boys.
Yes! I'm all about proving people wrong. GO TWINS! Oh, and glad to hear from you guys again!
