Three Things Wiggins Thinks

Here are things that I know, with absolute certainty, that Wiggins thinks:

1. That ARod will be the MVP of 2007. Not just the AL MVP. And not just the All Star game MVP. He'll be the MVP of everything that is 2007 in baseball. He will win the ALCS MVP. He will win the World Series MVP. He'll win the MVP Award for his play when the team of American all-stars visits Japan in the offseason. Wiggins even thinks there's a chance that ARod will win the NLCS MVP because of the influence he will have on the psyche of the NL players who will fear facing him in the World Series.

2. Hanley Ramirez will hit .237 and manage a statistically inefficient stolen base to caught stealing ratio.

3. Wiggins thinks "comedian" Andy Dick will find his inner heterosexual and spawn a child. She will be named Anita. Wiggins will try not to laugh about this for 18 years. He will fail.

I Suck Ass.

But we knew that.

Okay - so here is what I have been doing of late.

I have been getting together a big application for a competition that want to do next month... singing oratorio stuff. And I have a TON of repertoire to learn for this thing, so it sort of took over my life. Me - doing sacred music. And I have been loving it. I never thought it...

I think the biggest thing is that I have been singing/learning/working on/listening to the opera stuff for so long that I have such ingrained ideas and bad habits about it, that it almost makes it harder to do. I can sing the oratorio stuff (same kind of stuff, difficulty-wise, really) with much more ease - cause I don't know it going in and the bad habits aren't there. It is a breath of fresh air - even if I am singin' 'bout good ol' God!

The other cool thing about this is that since I have opened up this new vista (of sorts), now going back to the opera stuff is easier. I look at it and go "Hell! This is the same shit I was just singing over there and it was easy - why am I making this difficult?" And I sing everything better. It's great!

I'm having a good old time. Singing is a funny business.

Oh yeah - and the love life is good...

Can't complain all around.

But I still suck ass. I will put up a better post tomorrow, if I get the day off again.
