Calling occupants of interleague baseball teams

Apologies for the brevity tonight, but I’m running late, havent got a really good second blog subject, so this will need to do.

Every year up to this one, there has been a big trade deadline date in the MLB at end of July, but then until the end of August there was a secondary way of trading players, but not this year, its done now. I’m sure that in the next few days, one of the big teams is going to lose a major player, will not be able to trade for a replacement, and all hell will break out, especially if its the Yankees, lol. As long as its not the Dodgers, lol…

Of course they can still bring in free agents (unlikely to be many major pieces at this time of year), or players from their lesser quality teams. Of course it will be interested to see how this plays out, as I think that will show whether its a one year wonder, or not. I think the theory was that it might boost the market, but seems to have had the opposite effect, due to more teams being in contention, so I suspect we will be back to 2 trade dates next season, somehow, lol. But yes, if events at the end of July have a critical effect on events at end of October, well…?

Oh, and mentioning crazy end of year dates, the main part of the US golf year ends tonight! So they can get the playoffs out the way before the NFL season starts, seriously? Mind, the 2020 season starts in September, so…

Right, video time. The song is obvious, but its a single length version of the Klaatu version, as opposed to the long length Carpenters version!

Calling occupants of alien space craft.

A few things have brought about this blog. Firstly, one of my favorite characters to use in stories, CJ (yes, the modern edition of Clara Johnson) has been involved in a couple of fun skirmishes with a group of aliens of late, of an interesting kind, and secondly, the old chestnut of whether we really have had aliens visit our planet, live on our planet, or indeed abduct people to space craft in the middle of nowhere came about today.

Now I know you’re going to ask, do I, despite all logic saying otherwise (in terms of distance), believe that aliens have been to, are on Earth? Yes, you gather from the way I put that, I’m going to say yes. I know, at speeds we know of being able to travel, and the distances involved, it doesnt seem likely. But equally, who knows what technology may be out there in deep space, way beyond our comprehension, or horizons? Lets just say that there is a lot of secrecy involved in a small area of New Mexico for good reason, and leave it at that!

Yes, thats where the alien part of my story was set up for, no surprise, I guess? And yes, cute little flying saucer type space craft were most definitely involved. Fine, my story, and what happened to CJ in it, are pure fiction, but its fun to think that just maybe…?

As to whether alien life actually lives currently on Earth, who knows? Quite possibly, though I’m pretty sure its safe to say that they have either taken human body forms, or taken over selected human bodies. Lets go no further with that, OK? But equally, if you’re asking me if we really are the only beings in this corner of the universe, my guess would be no, but due to their far superior technology, we only find know it, if and when they want us to!

Who, me? Would I love a flight in one of those space craft, you bet I would. I cant say that anal probing is really my thing, but if thats the price I have to pay, I’ll go along with it. And of course, if they want to probe, and do other wicked things to my mind, no complaints whatsoever! Please do, in fact!

So what do you believe? Are we really the only sentient beings in the universe, or are there others out there? Either to visit us in the future, or have they already done so, or even are they already amongst us? Well?

OK, to the video. Firstly, the version of this song everyone knows, the full length track, with classic video

But then, did you know? Did you know, that is in fact a cover version of the song, because most people dont. This in fact is the original version, sounding very different in places. Sadly, no live version to be found, maybe the aliens have got one? 😉
