    I like the part about Shelby and Joe shopping at Goodwill.

      I can relate. Here is a story I can tell on myself.

      At the start of November, I was stranded away from home due to the hurricane. I originally had planned less than two days home before I was set to head to Phoenix for the AFL. My first trip was in a cold climate and I couldn’t get home in between to refill my suitcase with my warm-weather clothes.

      While stranded, unable to get flights out, I decided to compress my two trips into one and head straight to Arizona once planes started to fly again. Once I convinced the airline, I had to deal with my clothes mismatch.

      I knew I wouldn’t have time to shop when I got to Phoenix as I already had to come in one day later than planned. The stores where I was had only winter clothes on the racks at that time of year. After getting essentials at Target, I came up with the idea to pick up a minimal supply of shorts, polo shirts and even a brand new swimsuit at the local Goodwill. No seasonal problems with the merchandise there!

      Had never done it before, but I got quite a stack of clothes for something like $22.

      Most likely a skill perfected by those on minor league salaries.

    On the radio, Wainy said he was throwing his changeup today. About ten of them. He said he couldn’t throw it last year, and had to use something else. Said he isn’t concerned with velocity like he was last year. Said his arm feels solid and conditioned.

    Furcal got a cortisone shot for his bum elbow. Cortisone is a steroid hormone made naturally by the body. Nothing like an authorized steroid for medicinal purposes to get our lad back in action!
