I just watched the pilot episode of ‘Pitch’ and I hated it

** This post will contain spoilers

I wanted to like this show. I really wanted it to be good. I like the idea of a woman pitching in the big leagues. I would love to see that in real life.

But this show did not make it seem plausible. It didn’t even make the effort to make such a potential historical event seem like something that could actually happen. Instead, no reality was suspended and it felt like some made for TV Disney Channel movie. There were some bits of reality to it but way too much fantasy to make this show worth watching.

The idea of a woman pitching in the big leagues isn’t something that I think will never happen. I would love to see it. But Fox (yeah, my employer) did not do a great job of portraying that reality. Instead they gave us a premise with little to no background and a reality I could not live with.

I went to Qualcomm Stadium to see the Jaguars face the Chargers

I had never been to Qualcomm Stadium and I wanted to see a game there before the team potential moves. Jaguars were in town. Let’s go!

The stadium is not impressive but getting there on the trolley was real easy. Nothing too nice about this stadium. The audio was weak. Scoreboard was weak. Jaguars looked weak.

So much weakness. But hey, off my bucket list!

Warriors NBA Finals thoughts

I still love the Sharks

What a season. A season that had little expectations ended up being a magical run. What we had was a great chance to see the team and the Bay fall in love with this team again. The hardest championship to win and the Sharks battled all the way to the very end. They just weren’t good enough. But I have hope. I have faith that one day they will win it. One day.

Until that day, I will continue to cheer for my team.
