Very generous of you!  I'll take you up, if you don't mind...

I'm [OO/GT] Gromit on Steam.  You can find me in either the GT group or the OO group.  PM sent too...


Thanks!  biggrin

My first thought would be the USO.  Alternatively, you could contact the Airman & Family Readiness Center on any Air Force base to see if that's something they would do...not sure what the sister services have along those lines, though.

Crossworlds for me today.  I would've bought the Platinum Pack if I could've gifted the other two (I already own them), but Steam doesn't seem to want to allow that.

Whatever.   thumbsdown

Picked up Torchlight @ $5.

Also added 5 games to my wishlist since they are giving the top 5 games on 30 people a day's wishlight smile

Ensure you have 10 games on your wishlist, per the rules...if you win, they'll give you your top 5, but you have to have a minimum of ten to qualify.

Ummm



Doctors write this all the time. Why? I have no damn idea. But more often than not, when I see a script for something you stick where the sun don't shine, they have the 'per' part clearly written as if people have more than one.

It's a written out abbreviation:  PR (per Rectum).  When a doc writes a prescription to be taken in a more traditional means, he'll write something like: T1 tablet PO PRN QHS...take one tablet by mouth (or per os, which is Latin) as necessary (PRN) at bedtime (QHS).

Is this the 3rd or 4th time Tampa Bay has been no-hit or perfect-gamed in the last two seasons?

Third.

Mark Buerhle (CWS) tossed a perfect game against TB on July 23rd 2009.
Dallas Braden (OAK) threw a perfect game against TB on May 9th 2010.
Edwin Jackson threw a no-hitter against TB on June 25th 2010.

The 4th one was tossed by Derek Lowe (BOS) on April 27th 20002 (no-hitter).

I just think if you walk 8 guys there should be an asterisk or something. How about perfect game, then no-hitter, then "imperfect game"?

We'll agree to disagree.  Anyway, there's "imperfect games" every day.  smile

Keep in mind that TB stranded every one of those walks.  They had their chances to cash in...
   
So, that brings up a question for me. If he were to have walked bases loaded, then walked in a run. Still a no-hitter?
   
I suppose so, but I'd never really thought of that scenario before (may have even happened before).

It's happened twice, according to Baseball Reference.com:

There have also been two games in which a team has had a no-hitter thrown for them but has lost. The first occurred on April 23, 1964, as Ken Johnson of the Houston Colt .45's was beaten 1 - 0 by the Cincinnati Reds. In the top of the ninth, Johnson allowed a run to score on two errors, and in the bottom of the frame the Houston bats came up empty. He remains the only pitcher to lose a complete game nine-inning no-hitter.

Three years later, in 1967, Steve Barber and Stu Miller of the Baltimore Orioles pitched a combined no-hitter, but lost 2 - 1 to the Detroit Tigers. In the top of the ninth, two runs were scored on three walks, a wild pitch, and two errors.

Kind of think once you get over 6 walks you should lose credit for a no-hitter. But over 150 pitches...

149 pitches.

And it's not called a no-walker for a reason.  Do that, along with no hitting a team, and you get a perfect game (which I'm sure you already know).

Nevertheless, an impressive, gutsy performance considering how sloppily he began.  Keep in mind he faced 37 batters during the course of the game...

I'm guessing about as fast as that thing was flying.  I just randomly pushed zero for awhile.  I did not do any calculations.  LOL
