Finances? Don’t Ask.

We drop in on Mr. Singh. What a guy! That goat curry! He takes our most valuable possession – Bernie’s grandfather’s watch – and hands over some cash.

“What a lovely timepiece, Bernie!”

“Uh-huh,” says Bernie. He’s not in a good mood today, on account of Huskies beating the spread or Bulldogs not making the spread or some other puzzler.

Next we drop in on Dom Divine. Dom’s the bookie. He has these soft, fat hands. They fold themselves around the money.

Welcome Bec.

    Bernie should stop wasting time, energy and money on gambling and start solving the Astrid case. Grump….

    B. – I think the Astrid case is a goner. Too much water over the bridge or under the dam or whatever.

    Good morning! Glad I didn’t bet, not that Yukon lost, but if I had bet they would have. Of course, that would have been better for Bernie. Dithering here . . .

    Eaglets are eating right now. So am I, but I’m having a peanut butter sandwich.

    Hi Mollypop and Melanie. Perhaps we should solve the Astrid case ourselves.

    That might be fun B.Stover!

    Eaglet picture for those with cam problems. They are hugging! Though actually since I’ve been watching them, it’s more likely they are wrestling.

    Good morning, y’all! Astrid? Is that a basketball player in tonight’s women’s championship? It’s sure not someone Chet has mentioned lately!!!

    Gamboling!…. heh!snort!heh!… Poor Bernie! I knew this would happen….snicker!… What’s up with the Goat Curry? …gah!….Tough as nails I betcha. Smelly too!…sniff!

    Eaglets!….So when little brother hatches will these two jump on him and peck him to death?….grunt!…No wander he doesn’t want to come out of that shell…wheeze!

    Good Morning to All!

    Bernie, Bernie, Bernie….

    Please do not make any bets on the World Series this year!!!

    Good morning all!
    Bernie, sorry that your Bulldogs lost. We knew Huskies would win but we thought that was the girls’ team. We were rooting for the Bulldogs in the boys competition, just because we know your finances are a mess.
    Speaking of girls’ teams, everyone please root for the Irish tonite. We have a really really good time at our house when they win because Mom & Dad like to party when that happens!

    Those little eaglets seem to need to lean on each other to stay upright. Their heads are too big for their bodies. Hope the 3rd one hatches soon. We are a little worried about that one.

  10. Barb & Maggie
    10:24 am on April 5th, 2011

    I think the 3rd egg is due to hatch today. We also are worried about it, but evidently in the past 3 years this pair has raised all their hatchlings. Paws crossed here.

    Wookie, glad your treatment went well yesterday.

    And Bernie, you should have known better!

  11. Macy the Min-Pin

    Good morning y’all,

    It is a cool beautiful day in Texas. Mom is off to her second funeral in a weeks time, so she is glad it is not dreary. I will be back later to check on those birdies.

    Wolfie’s mom, we are going to connect on WWF sooner or later!

  12. Melanie
    11:03 am on April 5th, 2011

    Off down the hill for errands and PT. What fun . . . :(

    Macy, give her lots of hugs and kisses.

    Reducing my PT to once a week. Being the only driver in the house takes it’s toll. This week (after today) is about resting up for SATURDAY!!

    BTW, I am cane-less. Stairs are still a problem, but this is the first time in nine months I haven’t used a cane to walk.

  13. Mollypop
    11:11 am on April 5th, 2011

    But Melanie, if you don’t have your cane, what is B. going to do when she needs to have a little chat with someone?

  14. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:26 am on April 5th, 2011

    Cane!… Maybe Melanie should mail her cane to Stover!…heh!…You never know when the Fabulous Baker Boy will show up…snort!

    Debbie:You were right yesterday. Bernie made that visit to Mr. Singh as Jonathon, the Husky, celebrates today at UConn/Yukon (snicker).

    Wookie: Glad to hear you are ok after treatment. You are always wished the best.

    What a great idea having our own Siber-H riding along on the 2012 Iditarod!

    Happy Tuesday to All.

  16. Siber-H
    12:14 pm on April 5th, 2011

    We hate the phrase, “I told you so”, but, guess what, Bernie…we told you so.

    Great news that Melanie is getting around without the cane. We are looking forward to her enjoying Saturday.

    Johnathon, the Husky, is actually making an appearance in public today? I would like to see him.

    Macy, the Rangers won another game. They are sure on a roll.

  17. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:38 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Standings!… The Rangers and the Orioles are both 4 and 0…yeep!….Unlike the Red Sox who are 0 and 3 …heh!snort!heh! …. I’m glad the Rangers aren’t in my division…sniff!

  18. Kirby T. Penworthy
    1:05 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Dad’s really lording it over Mom because the Orioles are doing so well. In fact, there was a story on the sports channel the other day about how — if they went back to last season when the Orioles got their new coach — they would have a 4-and-a-half game lead over their nearest competition. Mom’s Angels, on the other hand…. Let’s just say I may have to rethink which team I root for!!!

    The Event! Rio & B., hope you were able to watch last night. It’s getting really good.

    T&G: Where are you this morning? That was furious weather yesterday. Hope you are safe and well.

    Hi Sam,

    We just saw your message from yesterday. Yes, we are Maltese! Montana is like Iggy which is why we don’t always include him in our messages. He calls us “little” and says he’s a better hunter than us. We could hunt if we wanted to!

    Max & Buddy

    Lightning!…Maybe with any luck the lightning storm took out those Kats yesterday…heh! ….Beavis and Butthead roasted!….snort!

    Natash!…Do you like Hockey?…grunt!…All true Russians like Hockey, don’t they?…sniff!

  24. BARB & MAGGIE
    2:30 pm on April 5th, 2011

    My friend next door, Toby, is a Maltese. He is little but he is cool!

    Rio, They are saying part 3 and 4 of The Kennedys is on tonight. So far only 1 2-hour show has been on, so they must be calling each 1 hour segment a part. When they called it 8 parts, I thought it would be 16 hours total, but evidently only 8 hours. Sort of confusing.

  25. Riö - The Evil Pug
    2:53 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Kennedys!….Gonna have to miss it again. The Rockies are playing the Dodgers!…heh!… I wouldn’t miss that for anything…snort!

  26. Melanie
    3:34 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Buddy and and Max: big dogs hiding in little bodies.

    The lightning wasn’t as bad here. But it was enough to have Franklin running for Zoë.

    LizF: No one from my Newf friends have tried the stem cell therapy. Looking it up, seems to be mostly from vets doing the therapy. Sorry can’t help. Let me know how Cricket does.

  28. B.Stover

    Astrid: The last time we had anything on the case was, I think, December 14,2010.

    Ray is wired and nervous. He walked into the Dry Gultch instead of Col. Bob. He said Col. Bob was tied up but wanted Ray to bring Bernie to him. Bernie wrote something on a napkin. They drive and end up at Mesquite Road to find Foster, who is with the FBI, in Bernie’s office. He has a warrant to search the place. Foster had not really been working for Albie for years; Albie said whatever Foster told him to say because he “was a hooked fish.” Chet wants to grab Foster by the pant legs because he doesn’t like the tone of his voice. Bernie asks what he had on Albie and Foster says, “That’s a long story.” He turned to Ray. “Which maybe the kid shouldn’t hear. Not unless I take him in, and this may not be the time.”
    Ray started backing toward the door. So….

    -Where is Astrid?
    -What was the motive for killing Albie and why put his body in the freezer?
    -Why set up Ray for the murder of Albie (if he was set up)?
    -What is the motive for killing Ratko, wrapping up his body and hiding it in a closet at Cactus Heights where he was caretaker for Albie?
    -Why are the FBI involved?
    -Where is Col. Bob?

    Liz: There was a post on this blog about stem-cell therapy titled “Ruben” on January 13, 2011. I can’t get a link to the Detroit News article for some reason. It was the Woodside Animal Clinic in Royal Oak, Michigan. Here’s Chet’s Blog post:

    “Here’s a story out of Detroit,” Spence says (hat tip – Candice Williams, The Detroit News). “It’s all about Reuben, a 9-year-old English springer spaniel with hip dysplasia and arthritis. He went to a clinic that does in-house stem-cell therapy – harvesting and injecting stem cells the same day. Treatment started with light anesthesia and then the vet took about a tablespoon of fat from Reuben’s back. The fat is lasered, the cells get separated out, and are injected into the joints. The vet expects Reuben to be moving better 2 or 3 weeks. Cost – about two grand.”

    Bear: I did watch The Event last night. I enjoyed it. Still want to know who the Hal Holbrook character is.

  31. Melanie
    4:18 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Oh, they take it out of the fat cells. I had pictures of owners asking for the umbilicords of the puppies. . .

    Somewhere I’ve got a lot written down, B. Stover, too tired to look for it right now.

    Zoë said while I was gone the big eagle separated the two eaglets.

    “Go to your rooms!”

  32. BearSpiritDog
    5:28 pm on April 5th, 2011

    B: I know! Is he nefarious or not? And who is the mole?

    Eaglets “to their rooms” – how funny!

    Max&Buddy: Our neighbor Hunter is a Maltese – a very cool dog. Hi to Montana.

  33. Riö - The Evil Pug
    5:29 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Eaglets!…Those female eagles are mean right from the start!…grunt! …Those two are going to devour their little brother, mark my words…heh! …They are already practicing on each other…sniff!

    Mom is reading PA’s book, The Perfect Crime, and can’t seem to be able to put it down. She bought it for her Kindle a while ago when some of you were reading it. She’s finally getting around to her reading again.

    Bear: And what about the president’s wife in The Event!?

  36. OleyHowlers
    6:04 pm on April 5th, 2011

    On my drive home from work, I listened to NPR do a segment on our Eagles!!! Here is a link:

    Told you Mom was obsessed with the Eagles.

  38. BearSpiritDog
    6:43 pm on April 5th, 2011

    B! Yes, and there are a couple of other suspicious characters in the vicinity. Looking forward to next week as they are increasing the pace and the show has become much more interesting. What did you think of “Body of Proof” on Tuesday?
    I’m two shows into it and haven’t made up my mind.

    O.Howlers: Nana loves to listen to NPR when we’re driving in the car. You can always find information there that is not on mainstream news.

  39. LizF
    6:55 pm on April 5th, 2011

    I think I’m watching the wrong eagles, the ones in Norfolk.

    Thanks B, that’s interesting – it’s almost word for word what the vet told me on Saturday! Amazing that the technology is still very recent over there too, I was expecting us to be a couple of years behind.

  40. B.Stover
    7:06 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Bear: I like Body of Proof. I’m going to watch it tonight. The Killing is good also. You might like it. I think it’s on Sundays at 10PM on AMC.

  41. Mollypop
    7:09 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Liz – The Norfolk eagles are further south of the ones in Iowa that we’re watching now. The Norfolk babies are pretty big because they were hatched a while ago. Here is the link to the two babies, and one egg still to hatch.

    Liz: Are you going to have the procedure done on Cricket? It seems to me that anything to do with doctors, vets, dentists is outrageously expensive.

    Which reminds me: I paid nearly $30 for seven point four-eight gallons of gas today.

  43. Melanie
    7:11 pm on April 5th, 2011

    OleyHowlers: Loved the video at the end that used Dueling Banjos while the Eagle is nesting.

    Hello Plunderers! It has been busy in our corner of the world the past week and I haven’t had the time to visit Chet’s for a few days, but I wanted to drop in and let you know that the Plunderers have far exceeded the sponsorship level for Whitey-Lance! Dare I say?—we have received $1260! Along with the leftover laundry money I’ve saved, we have almost half of the entrance fee (given that there are no emergency vet trips and nothing breaks).

    Snowhook Kennel can’t thank the Plunderers enough. Please consider yourselves honorary members of the 2012 Iditarod team. I still have something up my sleeve for the Plunderers, but it’s going to take me a bit to get it together.

    In the next couple of days I will be updating the sponsor section on our blog. I am planning on listing you under the user names on Chet ‘s unless you tell me otherwise — I can be emailed directly at snowhookkennel@gmail.com.

  45. LizF
    7:44 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Thanks Mollypop.

    I had to go to an online conversion site to work out the price of that petrol: here that would cost over $40!

    I’m thinking seriously about going ahead with the procedure, it would be expensive but it’s the same cost as Cricket’s medications per year, so…

  46. Siber-H
    7:48 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Almost half the entry fee!!! Woo Woo Rebecca, thanks for dropping by with the good news.

    Wait till everyone else sees Rebecca’s post.

    I would be honored to be known as Siber-H on the sponsor section of Snowhook’s blog.

    Snowhook!…. Wow!Wow!Wow!….snort!… I knew you guys were generous and now I know how much!…gruff!… This is outstanding news! Plus we are “honorary members” of the Snowhook team!…Whooppeeee!…Now I bet there will be a Chet Patch or banner for sure!….Woooooo!…How exciting this all is!…sniff!…We plan to continue giving what we can all year long for these guys! Because we here love them!…..snorkel!

    SiberH!…heh!snort!heh!…I do believe Rebecca will group us all together as Friends of Chet or Chet and The Plunders something like that….snort!… I don’t think she meant she would list each and everyone of us….gawf! heh! ….Silly Siberian!

  49. B.Stover
    8:08 pm on April 5th, 2011

    We’re going to be listed as sponsors! How cool!! Thank you Rebecca.

  50. B.Stover
    8:12 pm on April 5th, 2011

    When Rebecca writes that she is going to use our username’s on Chet’s, it seems as though she will list us individually.

    8:25 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Stover!… Now that I read it that way, you may be right!….snort!…We will have to wait and see what she comes up with….gruff!….SiberH, I may have lead you astray there and you will show up as Honorable Siber-H indeed!…heh!…I’m so excited I can’t sit still, I keep twirling and twirling, skipping and skipping!….wooo!

    Baseball!…But now I have to get serious and root for my team!..snort!…They are playing the Dreaded Dodgers who are already top in the division….drat!

    Hi there everyone..hi,hello, hi, hi, hi. Tupper here, yup it’s me, me, me. Gilly’s here too. Yup she is, she really is. We have had an exciting day. Really exciting. Daddy was home with us today, and you know what, you knjow what. He had COFFEE! Yup he did. And you know what else? He left some of it in the cup and left it on the floor. Ha ha, how funny is that? Daddy left coffee on the floor. And WE’RE on the floor. Yup we are….cuz we’re CORGIS and we’re kinda short, so we’re on the floor. And so this coffee was just sitting there, and you know what, you know what. Gilly and I DRANK it….yup, yup we did. We drank it. Mama got really upset, something about coffee and caffeine being bad for dogs – the vet said that two Corgis and one half cup of coffee wouldn’t bother us. And we feel just fine…yup we do. Perfectly fine. Ok, so Gilly has chased the Kats to distraction and rearranged te furniture and pulled out all her toys and run up and down the stairs about 50 kazillion times. Me, there’s nothing different about me…no there’s not. I’m just the same old Tupper Pupper Supper Schlupper. Yup, I am. That’s me. So what’s new with all of you, huh,huh?

He jumps on my friend and almost knocks her over…grump! …. That annoys me for some reason!…grrrr!

    8:46 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Just read Rebecca’s post. This is so exciting! I agree with with Siber-H & B. It is quite amazing to have raised $1250 after only a couple of weeks. Think of what we can contribute by November!

    Rebecca: We are honored and proud to be a part of Team Snowhook 2012. Go Snowhook!!!

    Rebecca – we are thrilled to hear the news. yup, yup…really thrilled. Can we run in the race too, huh, huh? We’d be really good at the mush part. Yup.e can run fast. We could herd the other huskies. oooh ooooh…maybe we could herd a moose. Can we, huh,huh, can we?

  59. Riö - The Evil Pug
    9:04 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Moose!….Corgis herding moose!…heh!…Now I would actually like to see that because as far as I know moose don’t like to be confronted….snort!…Especially by little furry caffinated creatures….snorkel!

    yo! Man, you would NOT believe the day we have had here. Stupid Corgis have gone from hiding under beds during the thunderstorms to running around like gerbils on speed.
    At least Mama gets the day off tomorrow to get ready for the dinner party. Hopefully she will keep these blasted dogs in line.
    Great news from Snowhook. And really great news from Melanie that she doesn’t need her cane anymore.
    B.Stover- we have a suggestion for good use for that cane if Melanie sends it to you. Seems there is a grumpy smart alec pug with a box of tin foil who needs to be put in his place…..

    That is such great news from Rebecca — I knew we could do it. And I am sure there is more to come too.

    LizF — I had somehow missed your post yesterday regarding Cricket and stem-cell treatments. As someone who is taking advantage of some cutting edge medical treatments, I would definitely encourage you to go for it. Although I do need to ask if you have already tried acupuncture. I have been getting regular acupuncture treatments for the past couple of years now, and they have really helped my mobility tremendously. Wookie

    Dear Herbs,
    I just want to send you my sympathy. Today must have been horrible with the 2 corgi’s acting so crazed. The worst thing that happens here is Mr.Staff sneezes (real loud) and Staff throws things at him and Abbie cries and jumps off his lap. That is about it for excitement.

    Snowhook Bella, Whoo Hooo we are doing great! Heh. I wonder how high we can go?

    Melanie, Curious here. How many years were you having knee trouble. It must be wonderful to have it finally get better.

    I am not talking about the Twins for a while. Maybe till November.

    Great defensive play by the Rockies.
    I am going to look for her rich friend (the old fart) in the crowd.

    SIBERH!… You are watching the game?…snort!…You didn’t say anything today about that!…heh!… Okay, when they have the camera on the batter he is usually blocking our friend, but sometimes you can see him just off to the left of the batter…snort…He has a little olive green cap on and a long sleeved orange shirt with an olive green vest type thing on too!…gruff!… He has a gray beard and is sitting inbetween a couple of ladies I think, they are not his wife, because she is really cute and sweet…heh! ….Let me know if you see “Ole Bill”…wheeze!

    TaG,

    I laughed so hard so hard that my sides hurt! Poor Herbs, what a long day it must have been for the.

    Personally, I am NOT giving up on Astrid. A Promise was made, and I know that SQPA will keep his promise. So there!

    HEY!…Now the Rockies are hitting like the Rangers!!!….Wooooo!….Two homers so far. One from Tulo and one from our wonderful catcher Iannetta!….yes! …Score is 2 – 0 so far…heh!

    SiberH!…When I say “left of the Batter” I mean to OUR Viewing right…snort!…Just so you know…sniff!

    The live video feed is streamed online 24/7. At night an infrared light provides night vision to viewers through the cam. Infrared light is not visible to eagles, they do not see it or know it is there.

    So nobody needs worry about the Eagles being disturbed.

    First a Maltese named Hunter, then Corgis on caffeine. Funny happenings on the blog tonight. I hope T & G have finally worn down. It must have been quite a day for the Herbs!

    We are settling in on the sofa, Barb watching Parenthood and me laying with my head on her lap. What bliss. Maybe she’ll share some popcorn with me.

    Night all.

    Sleep well T&G! (How much coffee did they drink???)

    Thanks Wookie. Acupuncture and chiropract…ure…ism…stuff would probably benefit Crick a lot but she’s a wriggler and never stays still for long enough to get treatment. Doesn’t like being touched generally, apart from cuddles – we’ve had to do some chiro exercises this week and she jumps around and twitches and spins in a circle and yips at me and carries on. It takes ages!

    SiberH!….Have you seen him yet?….heh!…He was missing for awhile because he had to get a drink or go wee wee wee…snort!…He’s back in his front row seat again …chuffle! ….The most wonderful score is now 3 – 0 Rockies…yeep!

  83. Siber-H

    I finally saw the rich dude, Rio. The orange shirt was a big help in spotting him.

    I also think that I am seeing Tulo start to relax some. He has seemed somewhat nervous to me in these games, but he is looking better now.

    Speaking of Troy…What a play!!!

    We don’t get the game here, but..Go Rockies..we do not want the Dodgers to win.

    Good evening my leetle Rio. Vhy do you enjoy the base of balls so much. Is silly game. Men dress like each other, spit and scratch themselves in personal places. Is this vhy is called base ball? They run to base, and scratch, vell, the balls.
    If they should be big strong men, they should lift the veights. Or do gymnastic, or skate. Vell, ok, so sometimes the men who do the skating, they are not so manly. Sometimes they vear the lace and seqvens. Is kind of girly, but they have big muscles.
    Natasha does not like the hockey. Too many teeth knocked out and uniforms not tight to show off nice men. Besides, is cold. Vhy vould anyvon go vatch a sport vhere you must be cold?
    Natasha likes the chess. And the ride in troikas. And spying. Natasha likes the spying very much. Of course she is so good at it, is like not vork. But to vatch base of balls – that is vork!

    10:35 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Tulo!…He is so freakin’ amazing! It’s unbelievable what that guy can do!…,snort!snort!…Of course Helton is a first base god also!…heh!…I love my team. Love love love them!…snorkel!

    SiberH!…That’s Bill. My friend used to work for him a long time ago. Her best friend was his wife’s sister…sniff!…She misses her best friend very much. She died of cancer 5 long years ago…sniff! …She has run into Bill at the game before though, and has given him a big hug!…heh!…He always sits in the same spot – season tickets of course…sigh!

    Hey all, I am saying goodnight now. Getting up early in the morning. Well, Staff is getting up early and because of that all of us have to turn off the computer.

    Abbie says Hi to Rio. she said to tell you that I, Alice, hogged the thing all night or she would have put up a one word post for him.

    see you all tomorrow…

  89. Siber-H
    10:43 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Rio, I am sure she still misses her friend. Five years, ten years…it doesn’t mean much when we experience a loss like that.

  90. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:45 pm on April 5th, 2011

    AbbieTheKat!…. I miss AbbieTheKat, she never ever hardly posts anymore…grump!…That darn Alice hogging everything all the time…shuffle!….I miss the days when Abbie and I posted together…heh!…The good old days on the blog…awww!

  91. Siber-H
    10:46 pm on April 5th, 2011

    The Rangers just won another game!

    Mollie(ABP) I don’t like the Dodgers either and they don’t seem very sorry about what happened to the Giant’s fan in their parking lot.

  92. Basil and Sage
    10:52 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Rio – maybe Abbie Kitty won’t talk to you cuz you are mean to us. Us Kats stick together!

  93. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:56 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Katz!….Beavis and Butthead, NO!….snort!…AbbieTheKat is my only Kat friend besides BluKat…heh!…Abby and I are old friends even though I still make fun of her girth whenever I can…snorkel!

  94. LizF
    10:59 pm on April 5th, 2011

    From memory they don’t wear tight uniforms in chess either…and it’s not that much of a spectator sport…but each to her own.

  95. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:03 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Closer!…. Our closer, Houston Street is up and doing a fine job putting the Dodgers to bed for the night!…heh!snort!heh!….DONE! Dodgers are done! Seven shut-out innings by our pitcher and the Rockies win big big big here tonight!. …Wooooo!….

  96. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:06 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Liz!…Chess rocks…heh!…Just so you know…sniff!

  97. Siber-H
    11:08 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Woo Woo Houston Street did a fine job!!! Rockies Won!!
    That was a good game.
    I will admitt that the Borzoi is right about one thing…the spitting and scratching.

    night all

  98. LizF
    11:08 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Houston Street is a person?

  99. Barb & Maggie
    11:11 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Natasha, I sort of agree with you about the baseball and the skating, too. Some of the men skaters are manly, but we really, really don’t like that one guy, Johny Weir. Not because he is not manly, we don’t care about that. We don’t like him because he wears pieces of animal fur on his clothing. He says he doesn’t care if they have to sacrifice their lives for his vanity. If it makes him look good, he doesn’t care, and that is why he is no good. See if you can send him to Siberia, in one of his little fufu outfits. And no coat.
    Now we really are going to bed. TTFN as Melanie says.

  100. Siber-H
    11:12 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Yes, Liz. Houston Street is a baseball pitcher…a closer.

  101. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:26 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Closer!…Here’s me closing for the night!…snort!…Goodnight all! Sleep tight!…snorkel!….A special blessing goes out to all the guys up north at Snowhook Kennels! We love you guys!…wuffle!

  102. LizF
    11:26 pm on April 5th, 2011

    Thanks SH. Why are pitchers called closers?

  103. Macy the Min-Pin
    12:36 am on April 6th, 2011

    Closers come in to finish the game after the starter has thrown enough. At least that is how it looks to me.

    Night Liz.

    Macy out.
