Important Blog Update

My brother arrived here in England today for a two week (approximately) visit. During this visit updates may be a little more sparse as we have important business to attend to. We recently discovered that we are descended from an ancient royal lineage (as our last name would indicate, that of Alexander the Great). As such, we will be heading down to London on Thursday to challenge the royal family for the crown of England. We don't expect much resistance.

As such I will have to predict the next few days of Yankees related news. By Saturday, the Yanks will have played 5 or 6 more games (thank you split squads). You will have lost count largely due to lack of interest. Ace will still be the leading candidate for our fifth rotation spot, and the Yanks will announce a new coronation ceremony to take place in the Bronx some time in July. A-Rod will still be dodging questions about Dr. Tony Galea, and the Feds will still not have interviewed him. There will be news stories about how angry the Yankees brass is with Rodriguez, and public statements denying the veracity of those stories. Then, out of nowhere, A-Rod will hold another press conference; this time unveiling his new "Jeterlike" haircut. The ensuing controversy will threaten to undo the Yankees and the quest for 28. Then Swisher will regrow his Swish-hawk and turn the tide of history, ushering in a new Yankees dynasty.

By then, the Alejandrian Era in the UK will be well underway. Not much will have changed, or everything will have changed! Now you can sleep more easily at night.

Godspeed Alejandros. May your reign be long and cruel.

You lost me at "approximately."

I would expect that the Blogs would be twice as long and twice as frequent since you two are together brainstorming your every waking moment. Not only that, I also see a 3 Act play, a moviescript and an old timey radio show with sound effects and timely placed sponsor spots included on the history and future of RJG at the end of the 2 weeks.

Make it so.

So, will this cutthroat First Bounce Or Fly game for the British Crown be televised?
(Hope I have time to get down to Nevada.)

Have fun, don't forget about the little people when you're ruling England, and when you come back to 500868608 posts by me going on about Andy Pettitte and/or the stupidity of many other Yankee fans, don't be surprised.

I like the idea of an RJG movie. We may have to start working on that. I think I would have to be played by Vin Diesel or Gerard Butler (if he gets back into 300 shape), but James Earl Jones would have to do my voice. That sounds about right. My brother would be played by Jet Li.

I could start on a treatment for the RJG movie. I have a view ideas. The best one involves ARod teaming up with Dr. Galea to create a malevolent cyborg, called Alexandroid Robotriguez, designed to conquer the world's supply of enriched steroidium. Only RJG (I'm not sure whether it would be the Alejandros, people who read RJG, or the blog itself somehow) would be able to stop them. My worst idea is a documentary about the career of Catch N Throw. It turns out I don't have any other ideas.

Another update: this weather is gross and I'm tired of people accusing Reyes of using HGH with no evidence at all.
