I have to go out, but I'm DVRing this one! Baseball ...

Wouldn't you know ... I DVRed the three hours that were scheduled for this, but it went thirteen innings! Melbourne finally won, so there will be a third and deciding game tomorrow. I'm rooting for Melbourne, of course, so that's a good thing ... wish I could have seen it!

Here's a recap: http://www.baseball.org.au/default.asp?Page=83105

Well, Melbourne lost ... but once again the game went thirteen innings! This time I was prepared, though, and set the DVR for an extra hour.

What a rough break for the losing pitcher ... he pitched eight innings in relief, then put the lead runner on in the 13th by hitting him with a pitch, so they took him out. And his replacement eventually allowed the winning run to score ... on a wild pitch.

So Perth repeats as Aussie Champs. But hats off to a career minor leaguer (U.S. minor leagues, that is) rejoicing in the name of Bubbie Buzachero:

Quote
Bubbie Buzachero was incredible for the Aces, throwing 115 pitches over 8.0 innings just a day after throwing 49 pitches in 3.1 scoreless frames in Game Two. He took over for Jamnik with a runner on in the fifth and pitched all the way into the 13th, allowing just four hits and two runs, striking out seven.

Oh well, Melbourne ... wait till next year!

Sunday February 19, 2012 marks 70 years since Darwin was bombed during WWII. Can you believe more bombs were dropped on Darwin than at Pearl Harbour 3 months earlier?

Quote
The bombing of Darwin on 19 February 1942 was both the first and the largest single attack mounted by a foreign power against Australia. On this day, 242 Japanese aircraft attacked ships in Darwin's harbour and the town's two airfields in an attempt to prevent the Allies from using them as bases to contest the invasions of Timor and Java. The town was only lightly defended, and the Japanese inflicted heavy losses upon the Allied forces at little cost to themselves. The urban areas of Darwin also suffered some damage from the raids, and there were a number of civilian casualties.

This event is often called the "Pearl Harbor of Australia".[2] Although it was a less significant military target, a greater number of bombs were dropped on Darwin than were used in the attack on Pearl Harbor.[3][4] The raids on Darwin represented a psychological blow to the Australian population, several weeks after hostilities with Japan had begun. The raids were the first and largest of almost 100 air raids against Australia during 1942–43.

The History channel here in Australia will be airing a documentary on Sunday night @ 7:30pm to commemorate the anniversary.

I didn't think films still got cut on tv these days with all the violence there is now. I was just channel surfing and Raiders Of The Lost Ark was on and it was at the beginning where Alfred Molina's character is impaled on those spikes and they cut it. They showed the skeleton of the character Forrestal earlier but not this scene.

Quite strange I thought. I know it's 6:30pm on a Saturday night and there are kiddies out there but I wonder if they'll show the scene with the melted faces later on?
