Focusing FAIL, Distraction SUCCESS

Today was kind of a long day. Towards the end of class around 5:30PM, I became unable to focus. I stared at the underlined sentence below, trying to read and understand:

Photobucket

Instead of reading:

"You practically have to wait for what are called the neo-classical economists, Walras and Pareto, to see the more or less clear emergence of what is understood by homo economicus."

I swear to the Gods of Baseball I saw:

"You practically have to wait for what are called the neo-classical economists, DAVID ORTIZ and JORGE CANTU, to see the more or less clear emergence of what is understood by homo economicus."

I was quite concerned about Jorge's hand (today's performance indicates he's recovering) and I think I was so impressed by Jenni's move to drop Ortiz for Nick Swisher that the wallpaper of my subconscious became this image, which Joe showed me yesterday:

Big Papi looks like our landlord in this picture.

I had a lot of dreams last night about baseball too, and possibly Stat Tracker and/or the At Bat app, but I can't remember the details. I am kind of going crazy but I'm not gonna lie, I'm loving it.

Man, I am still sad about dropping Big Papi. But he was doing NOTHING for my team and I already have too many novelty bench warmers.

To be honest, I'm not sure I could have dropped Papi if you hadn't dropped Matsui. I see them both as holding a lot of "sentimental currency." But one must remember, to quote Tom Hanks, "THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL."
