Can I vote Man U? ;-)

Nah... if I *had* to pick a baseball team (and ... er ... let's just say baseball isn't exactly my favorite sport), I'd have to at least go with one from the West Coast. I'd ordinarily say Angels (being from Orange County ... no, they are not and will never be the Los Angeles Angles, unless they move their stadium into Los Angeles County at least), but we may move to Seattle, so I might have to change that to Mariners in the near future.

Forgettabout the "Yinkees" and paaark a caaaar on the Dead Sox as well. There are sports teams outside of the East coast or big cities for that matter. My allegiance is with the Tribe and always will be.

I'm a red sox fan because my boss is and 'ware anyone who isn't - lol. And I don't know a single thing about baseball, so I just go with it.

I'm not a big-event goer to, except for maybe RenFair.

Red Sox....

I live in NY, but here are my problems with the teams here. The Mets...well, they stink. And I have just never found them interesting to watch, nor do I particularly like anyone on their team. The Yankees aggravate me to no end. A few reasons:

1. It's boring to watch the same team win every year.

2. They just buy out all the talent in the league, rather than spending their money wisely.

3. They overpay people, such as Derek Jeter (by 10 million in baseball standards--that is to say, for the job he's doing, he'd still be overpaid minus 10 million dollars) and drive up the market for such players. If Jeter is worth an extra 10 million, then Garciaparra feels that he is, too. And that makes it that much harder for smaller teams.

4. Low moral standards for keeping Giambi after the steroid incident. The most common reply to that is, "Hey, well the Giants kept Bonds." Well, the Giants are low, too.

5. I just don't like the players on their team. Though many will swear to the contrary, I think Jeter is cocky...a bit of an egomaniac, though he may put on a pretense not to be. I strongly dislike Giambi for obvious reasons, and there are little problems I have with each player, that I'm not going to bother to attempt to explain. I respect that Cano is a talented 2nd baseman for a rookie and respect Jorge Posada as a catcher who was underrated until recently (though he's still not in the same league as Varitek offensive or defensively), but other than that, I don't like them.....

And make the Orioles keeping Raffy too....

Also, Jason Varitek is the best and Posada is good but not near Varitek in my opinion either.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
