Mildly Recent Del.icio.us Links
If you're not plugged into the feed of my del.icio.us links, you're missing out. Of course, you're not missing much sense I happily re-post most of those links below:
New York City Parks/Parks and Recreation: NYC Bocce Courts
a note for spring
I did some searching around on Google maps. We're going to have to travel around a bit to get to some of these. I'd like to figure out how a bunch of us can go and really get some playing time to ourselves. Maybe we should go soon during a warm-ish weekend.
ESPN.com - MLB - New skipper Girardi: No facial hair for Marlins
I am 100% against this policy. And what's with the shaving of Quarterback Ben's beard on Letterman? Can't people chill out about facial hair?

i'm finding tiny little bits of happiness from this website
It was a boojum: Curling like me
One of the guys from Off The Wall (a local bocce team) tries his hand at curling.
TheMirl.com - "Enter Sandman" - Wagner & Rivera!!!
(via Ducksnorts) New Mets closer Billy Wagner uses the same intro music as Yankee Mariano Rivera! Spring's going to be interesting.
(BW) ``BUBBLE'' Grosses Estimated $5 Million in Opening Weekend with Day-and-Date Strategy | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle
"$2,250 per screen average" - that sounds very low. i would love to see more info about how the simultaneous platforms affected theater-going.

TVgasm - The OC: If You Love Something, Set It Free
i can't read this many words. i doubt you can. just scroll down for the "'hey!' count."
I've been loving The OC quite a bit lately. My DVR went all wonky during the last five minutes of last week's episode. Those were the five minutes promoted by Fox as THE FIVE MINUTES YOU CAN'T MISS. I missed them. My friend and I went online looking for a recap. Where do you go when you need a recap of a TV show one hour after it airs on the east coast? I wanted full details involving quoted lines and expressions and a fair level of observation by a group of people just like me. No dice. Perhaps it's time to resume the meetings of the post-OC club?

AaronGleeman.com - Weight Loss (Day 1)
Looks like Aaron Gleeman (of The Hardball Times and elsewhere) is getting a few week jump on Will Carroll. Is there something in the baseball writing air?
The Year of Living Chemically: Part One
Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus starts a weight-loss blog. I'll admit to being intrigued. I like his writing and it will be an interesting follow-up to THE JUICE. I imagine there's a whole slew of other weight-loss blogs out there, right? And they always start in Jan.
And that's what the internet looked like to me this past January.
