An Update to My Approach to Watching Baseball in 2014
You might remember that 6 months ago I wrote about how I would watch baseball this year. Watching the opposing team’s coverage of the Blue Jays was a success, and I took detailed notes. This might cause some consternation, but my surprise, my favourite crew covering the Blue Jays was YES. That’s right, the Yankees’ TV crew. They were funny, making jokes about Canada that weren’t offensive though they did spread the false myth that our money smells like maple syrup, and I like Michael Kay’s home run call. Did you know that he says “See ya!” for home runs by teams opposing the Yankees as well? To top it all off, they don’t show PitchTrax on every pitch.
I used the No-Hitters Alerts app to keep abreast of no-hitters in progress, and my alert system worked pretty well. I’ve just now switched to using IFTTT to alert me to Shrimp and extra-innings games and position players pitching.
I figured out a way for you to mute all my baseball tweets but couldn’t find a way to implement it. Maybe I’ll have it in place before pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training.

If you take the right flight to Cairo, you might just spot that symbol of Arab independence glistening in the distance, in the distinctive shape of the Suez Canal, the narrow strait that was nationalized by former Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser in 1956, feeding Arab pride and making him a national hero. A few minutes later–if you’re sitting on the correct side of the plane–you might just glide over the pyramids, monuments to just one chapter of a glorious past. As the plane descends and approaches the edge of the city, you move along with the thousand-year march of Islam in Egypt: hundreds of mosques wave at you with their minarets, their domes stolid and unmoveable–symbols of a different kind of rebellion today. On the way to the final approach to the airport, the twenty-first century rushes beneath you in the form of tens of thousands of satellite dishes staring up from virtually every rooftop, beaming the world into living rooms where two out of every five women are still illiterate.A Thousand Farewells by Nahlah Ayed, p. 275.
