…I Want…

…To Hold You Tight.

Oh No…

…You Got To Pay…

…Got Me Down.

Good Times…

…Ain’t Around.

Now I…

…Got The Mind To Say…

EASILY And BY FAR…

…Is My FAVE Of FAVES From The Band…

KISS

“ROCK’N’ROLL ALL NITE”

FROM BRADLEY With LURVE, …#Pilot#

---Chapter 1: A New Beginning, or Bloggin'ing---

… … …

After A Lengthy Discussion…

…With…

“MY PARTNER In CRIME”

…I Decided To Begin A New Bloggin’ing Experience…

…With…

…Y’ALL.

I’m Calling This New Bloggin’ing Experience…

“FROM BRADLEY With LURVE, …”

I Expect To Have A Regular Pant-Load Of Excitement Brewin’ About With The Possibilities Surrounding The Innuendo Levied There.

(SIDE NOTE: Can You Repeat The Line Before This One, But THREE-TIMES-SUPER-DUPER FAST?!?!?)

So…

…I’ve Decided…

…To Use An Old “Standby-Staple”…

…Of…

“YOU JIVIN’ ME, TURKEY?”

…Namely…

…The Good Ole…

“12-IN-’12”

…To Help Usher-In…

My NEW Series

“FROM BRADLEY With LURVE, …”

😀

Tonight…

…I’m Highlighting…

MY 12 FAVORITE MLB FRANCHISES (that aren’t The St. Louis Cardinals) and WHY!

Sounds Like A Lot Of Fun, Eh?!?!

My Thoughts, Also.

Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

The ST. LOUIS CARDINALS Are Of Course The Be-All-That-Ends-All-In-Baseball, Y’all!!! 😀

Let Us Begin…

…At The Beginning…

…Where You’re SUPPOSED To Start, By The Way.

… … …

#Honorable Mention

THE SAN DIEGO PADRES

The SAN DIEGO PADRES: Actually, This Stems From My Navy Days. In 1998, While Attending Journalism School At Ft. Meade, Maryland, The Baseball WORLD SERIES Was Played-Out That October By The SAN DIEGO PADRES and The NEW YORK YANKEES. I Totally HATED The Yanks, and The Horses They Rode-In-On, So I Rooted Extra EXTRA HARD For The PADRES That Series. The Yanks SWEPT The Pads, 4Games To NONE! 😦

… … …

#12

THE SEATTLE MARINERS

The SEATTLE MARINERS: This One Is A Pretty EASY Guess For Anyone That Knows Me Very Well. I Was Stationed In Everett AND Bremerton, Washington, In 1999, 2000, and 2001. I Was THERE When They Blew-Up “The King Dome” AND When They Opened “SAFECO Field” and I’ve Had A Warm’ish/Soft’ish Place In My Heart For The Mariners Since Then. Sadly, They Really Do Suck BADLY The Majority Of The Time. Oh Well. 😦

… … …

#11

THE OAKLAND ATHLETICS

The OAKLAND ATHLETICS: These Cats Are Here For ONE REASON… “The BASH-BROTHERS” Fo SHO! Being A Child Of The 80s, There’s No-More-GLARING Example Of The 80s Than McGWIRE and CANSECO and Their FOREARM-BUMP HAHAHA Yes, Yes Indeed. Tons-O-Fun To WATCH! And Now They’ve All Be Labeled “Cheaters” Because They Were Raging-On-Roids. 😦

… … …

#10

THE MILWAUKEE BREWERS

The MILWAUKEE BREWERS: The LOGO Is WHY I Like Them. PERIOD. What Can I Say? It’s A DAMNED POWERFUL LOGO, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!! 🙂

… … …

#9

THE MONTREAL EXPOS

The MONTREAL EXPOS: A Wonderful Franchise That Was Choked-To-Death By RAMPANT LOSING, And The Fact They Were Canada’s “OTHER TEAM” or “BASTARD TEAM” or “LOSING TEAM” or Whatever. I Honestly LOVED The EXPOS, And I DID Shed A Tear The Day They Started Playing Half Of Their Home-Games In The CARIBBEAN!!! At That Point, We Knew Their Time Was On Life-Support. 😦

… … …

#8

THE SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS

The SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS: From The 1980s Until The Start Of The 1993 Season, I Was A Major Fan Of The GIANTS. WILL "The Thrill" CLARK was THE MAN, As Was MATT WILLIAMS, Fo SHO!!! And YES, I Did Root For The GIANTS To BEAT The A's In The 1989 WORLD SERIES (aka "Earthquake Series"). Sadly, however, BARRY BONDS Left The PITTSBURGH PIRATES And Headed West, To The Greener-Pastures Of SAN FRAN. I Always HATED B.B., And That Became The "I HATE The GIANTS!" Rallying-Cry For Li'l Ole ME. I Bet Against Them During The 2002 WORLD SERIES, But (with Barry GONE) I Totally Bet For Them To WIN In The 2010 WORLD SERIES. I Won BOTH Bets. 😉

… … …

#7

THE TORONTO BLUE JAYS

The TORONTO BLUE JAYS: I Always Had A Soft-Spot For The JAYS. They Had Some Damn Fine Ball-Clubs Over The Years. And NO They Didn’t Get Much Recognition Even After Winning The WORLD SERIES In 1992 AND AGAIN in 1993!!! Those JAYS Teams Were TRUE-BLUE-POWERHOUSES, Fo FLIPPIN’ SHO!!! John Olerud -1B- Was MY FAVORITE JAY, By The Way. 😉

 … … …

#6

THE PITTSBURGH PIRATES

The PITTSBURGH PIRATES: These Dudes Were ALWAYS My Father's FAVORITE TEAM (and a little of that rubbed of on ME). We Used To Watch Them EVERY TIME They Played The ST. LOUIS CARDINALS or The CHICAGO CUBS or The ATLANTA BRAVES (since we get all three of those stations here in SoIL). The PIRATES Had A Horrid Habit Of "Playing Amazing Baseball To Get Into The Play-Offs" Followed Quickly By "CHOKE CHOKE CHOKE"!!! 😦

… … …

#5

THE CHICAGO WHITE SOX

The CHICAGO WHITE SOX: The CHISOX Are THE ONE and THE ONLY Professional Sports Team I EVER Root For That’s Also FROM Chicago. The BEST Reason To Love The CHISOX? Because SAYING The Phrase “I LOVE THE CHISOX!” Goes A VERY Long Way In PISSING-OFF Those True-Blue CUBS Fans. 😀 I Was Tickled-Pink When They Finally Won The WORLD SERIES In 2005… …And Less-Tickled-Pink In The SIX SEASONS SINCE!!! 😦

… … …

#4

THE NEW YORK METS

The NEW YORK METS: I Purchased My Very 1st METS Baseball-Cap In 1991. My Two Favorite METS Players In 1991 Were 3B/Utility-Man HOWARD "HoJo" JOHNSON and Their Closer JOHN FRANCO. And WHY Did I Take-Up The Cause Of The Lowly (at that time) METS? Because I KNEW That By Doing So I Was GUARANTEED To PISS-OFF SOMEONE!!! When (nearly) Your Whole Bedrock Of Family AND Friends Are Constantly Divided Between The CARDS and The CUBS... Yeah... A Little Of The Ole "Monkey Wrench Into The Works" Routine Is TOTALLY Called-For, Fo SHO!!! 😉

… … …

#3

THE PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES

The PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES: Well, The PHILLIES Won The WORLD SERIES The Year I Was Born. They’ve Won 5-Pennants In My Short (while not so short) Lifetime (1980, 1983, 1993, 2008 & 2009). The Icing On Cake, For ME, Was The PHILLIES Are The Franchise My Childhood Baseball HERO, 3B MIKE SCHMIDT, Played BRILLIANTLY For His ENTIRE CAREER. Of ALL The “Retirement Announcements” I’ve EVER Seen AND/OR Heard, MIKE SCHMIDT’s In 1989 Brought Even ME To Tears. SCHMIDT Retires, PETE ROSE Gets Banished, AND The Earthquake During The WORLD SERIES. Yepper Kids, 1989 Was A VERY TOUGH Year, That’s Fer DAYUM Sure.

… … …

#2

THE DETROIT TIGERS

The DETROIT TIGERS: 5-NAMES You MUST Remember, My Peeps. #1 THOMAS MAGNUM! #2 ALAN TRAMMELL! #3 JACK MORRIS! #4 KIRK GIBSON #5 DANNY YATES! I Do So So SO Love Love LOVE My TIGERS! ‘Nuf ‘Ced, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

… … …

And Finally…

…What Is BRADLEY’s FAVORITE  (non St. Louis Cardinals) BASEBALL FRANCHISE???

???

???

#1

THE KANSAS CITY ROYALS

The KANSAS CITY ROYALS: I’ve Mentioned To Y’all Previously That The 1985 WORLD SERIES Was “THE BIRTH Of MY BASEBALL FANATICISM ” Which Has Yet To Ever Really Change. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Baseball. And The ’85 Series Was Between These KANSAS CITY ROYALS and Those ST. LOUIS CARDINALS!!! My Favorite Pitcher Of MY Lifetime (thus far)? BRET SABERHAGAN Of KC, DUH!!! So Yeah, The ROYALS BEAT The CARDINALS In 7-Games. While I DO Maintain The VERY Correct Knowledge Of HOW and WHY The Cards DIDN’T Win Game 6 (it was due to the UMPIRE’s blown-call) BUT They STILL Had To LOSE Game 7! And BOY OH BOY Did The CARDS LOSE IT! The Final Score Was ROYALS 11 (aka a thumpin’), CARDINALS 0 (aka zero, nadda, nuttin’)!!! BUT, My Peeps, I Am NOT A Fickle Man. I Don’t Jump From Ship To Ship Like So So SO Many Folks Do. I Know WHO I AM, WHAT I’VE GOT, WHAT I NEED, WHAT I SHOULD HAVE, WHO I’M WITH, and WHO I’VE LEFT BEHIND. My FAVORITE PITCHER EVER EVER EVER Is BRET SABERHAGEN Of Those KANSAS CITY ROYALS, FOOO SHOOO!! The CARDINALS May Be The BIGGEST-BOYS On MY-BLOCK, But I Do Do DO Sooooooooooo LOVE ME SOME ROYALS! WOOT!!! 😀

… … …

I Sure Hope Y’all Enjoyed That One.

I’ve Had A Rather Tiring…

…Yet…

…Personally Productive Evening.

I Think THIS Personal Accomplishment Merits…

…A HOT CUP…

…Of…

“8 O’CLOCK COFFEE”

!!!

Mmm Mmm MMMM!!!

😉

Who Do I See Stepping-Up From The Minors To Aide The ST. LOUIS CARDINALS In Their Run For A 12TH WORLD SERIES TITLE In 2012???

SHELBY MILLER -RHP- In The Minor Leagues Of The St. Louis Cardinals Has a Record of 18W-11L, a 3.17ERA, and in 247IP He’s Walked 88 and Struck-Out 312!!!

SHELBY MILLER Was Drafted By The ST. LOUIS CARDINALS In The 1st-Round of The 2009 Amateur Draft. If I Had To Choose A Word That Best Describes SHELBY MILLER… I’d Go With “BEAST”!!! When He’s Working, He’s OFF-THE-HOOK TALENTED and EXCITING!!! I Am SO SO SO READY!!!
