The Diamondbacks in the NLCS series

This topic is not a cheery one in our home right now, since the Diamondbacks are down 0-3 in this series.  One more loss and we’re OUT, which to me, is unfathomable.  Their offense is very nearly absent.  Very sad, but hope is not entirely gone.

My current favorite player, Micah Owings, is scheduled to pitch in tonight’s game.  With his hot bat and solid pitching, I’m hoping that it’ll result in a win that will provide the spark for the D’backs to stage an incredible comeback.

In the meanwhile, I am completely avoiding my Uncle Steve’s blog.  Steve is in Colorado, and, of course, a Rockies fan.

About Karen Joy

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.

  1. Ever since the Series of Unfortunate Cubbies’ Losses, I have been pulling for your Diamondbacks. I was surprised to see they were getting their clocks cleaned. Get your rally cap on, Karen. You never know what might happen!

  2. Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! You’re always so encouraging, Mrs. N, both about Important Life Issues, and now, about baseball… 🙂

  3. Hee, hee. The boys were asking what “it’s not over till the fat lady sings” means.
