Celebrating The Magic of Disney Music

I have a bit of a confession to make at the moment. *clears throat*  The kid within my heart loves Disney movies, and especially the music within them! Recently, I’ve been a wonderful opportunity: to listen to a sample album of Disney classics and modern tunes! And, even more exciting, I get to offer an opportunity to get a lot more songs to my blog readers!!

Because of my confession, you can guess my immediate reaction…

*jumps up and down* Yip,yip, hooray, calloo, callay!
(Yes, I’m a bit excited. *Super-grin* Open-mouthed smile)

Another season opens!

It’s the start of another season! [Major League] Baseball, of course. Opening Day is today, Monday, April 6th, and hopes are high for another interesting year, maybe without a steroid dabacle even. Dare we dream? Indeed, it’s the stuff the Houston Astros are made of…dreams (for we have little else at the moment, but who knows what the future may hold).
With that said, it’s also time to introduce the Astros again. Since I love nicknaming the players to personalize things–and generally amuse myself–, this is how I will introduce the hometown team. Keep in mind, we’ll undoubtedly have changes as the season continues. There’s one coming soon when a “To-Be-Named” player actually gets a name from a freshly traded new start player. And, already a change has been made from the time I wrote this last night. 😀

Note: I realize some of the nicknames may be quite lame, some are new because of new player(s) and not having time to know/remember them yet, and some still need explanation. If you can’t figure it out, just ask. If you’ve a better name, do tell. I can’t remember / think of everything, you know. 😉

The 40-Man roster of the Houston Astros aka ‘Stros is as follows:

“Hurlers”
#26 Doug “I’ve got you, Bro” cail! aka (?) [Doug Brocail]
#48 the Bird man! [Tim Byrdak]
#29 GG [Geoff Geary]
#11 The Comeback [Mike Hampton]
#22 The Hawk (?) [LaTroy Hawkins]
#38 He’s-got-potential aka Mo [Brian Moehler]
#44 [The] Wizard of Ohz [Roy Oswalt]
#51 Wild Man Wandy [Wandy Rodriguez]
#43 Give-me-a-sample aka (?) [Chris Sampson]
#47 VV [Jose Valverde]
#53 Dub-dub (W-W) [Wesley Wright]
?Late Add — “Hot Stuff” Ortiz [Russel Ortiz]
(God grant them good arms and hope the umps can see straight – 😀 )

Behind-the-plate:
#55 Q-Ball [Humberto Quintero]
#14 Pudge [Ivan Rodriguez]
(Anything happens to these guys, we may be up that infamous creek without a paddle.)

Hurler’s Henchmen:
#17 Fat Elvis aka Bacon aka Sir Lance-a-lot [Lance Berkman]
#27 Ge-off! aka Blooming Onion(?) [Geoff Blum]
— PingMe Jeff! [Jeff Keppinger]
#3 The Hitman aka SweeetMat aka ?? [Kazuo Matsui]
#10 Miggy aka Tomato aka Tay-hay [Miguel Tejada]
(Double Play, Triple Play, any play will do…just catch that ball else we’re screwed!)

The Ball Chasers:
#21 The Rabbit [Michael Bourn]
#2 Mr. E (Mystery) [Darin Erstad]
#45 Mr. Lee aka Lettuce aka El Caballo [Carlos Lee]
#4 TheRook [Jason Michaels]
#9 Underpants [Hunter Pence]
(Circus freaks, unite! We need catches, people!)

Lance and Carlos (Peanut butter & Jelly / PB&J…named during a 2009 exhibition game)
which reminds me of the PB and Jelly song…”Peanut butter and a baseball bat!!” 😀

The bacon, lettuce and tomato reference combine to make BLT sandwich of hits (line-up reference made during 2008 season).

And, let us not forget our on-air announcers: JD and Brownie! (And, hopefully, GL, too!)

Woohoo! Go ‘Stros!!

Saturday Scatterday

My mind’s a jumble. It must be aware it’s the middle of the weekend. I think it’s time to energize it (again). Let’s try with this rocking Texas band that makes the word “polka” get up and spaz! 😀

It’s time for…The Hokey Pokey [by Brave Combo]:

(it really is worth the listen, and will keep one hopping *Smile* Let me know what you think via the comments)
I may have a chance to see this group soon. We’ll see how it goes. *crosses fingers*
Edit: It turns out I didn’t get to go see them at the Wurstfest. Oh well. I’ve since eaten a turkey leg in their honor. 😀
