ToOer MLB Showdown Series - bookworm vs the world!

If there's something on your mind that just doesn't seem to fall into any of the other categories, well, it quite likely belongs inside Joe Finneman's marketplace. Think of it as a general store for general discussions!

ToOer MLB Showdown Series - bookworm vs the world!

It's been really fun having live chats of baseball games between ToOer teams the last couple years, and I discovered since last season we have a few more fans than I originally realized, so this year I decided instead of arranging chats on the fly when a game was approaching it would be neat to plan it out from the beginning and try to have at least one for each other ToOer team that mine (the Giants) face in 2018. If you're a baseball fan too let me know who you root for and I'll add it to the list! \:D/

The chats will take place in the #MLB channel in the Chatroom. These are good natured 'rivalry' events, all in fun. It adds something extra to the games, having a fan rooting on each side. These are very fun for the people whose teams are playing, and it has seemed to be enjoyable also for those who don't have a personal interest in the game but just come to hang out because it's a ToO related event. Whichever group you're in you are invited to come join the fun! :)

The chat had to be cut a little short unfortunately due to schedule conflicts, but even just doing the bit we could was a lot of fun! Thanks shnoodlec! \:D/
Transcript will be posted at some point.


And right away we have another one!

ImageImage Image
  • Giants/Phillies
  • bookworm/321tumbler
  • Series 1 of 2, Game 4 of 4
  • Thursday, May 10th
  • 1:05 PM ET first pitch

321tumbler isn't entirely sure she'll be able to make it, but of the four games this series this was the only one that was a possibility for her so we're going to try. I will be there for sure, and she'll come by for whatever portion she can. :) This one is streamed for free on Facebook so anyone who wants to follow along can!

Thanks 321tumbler; transcript will be posted soon.


The next chat is this weekend!

ImageImage Image
  • Giants/Cubs
  • bookworm/Knight Fisher
  • Series 1 of 2, Game 2 of 3
  • Saturday, May 26th
  • 7:15 PM ET first pitch

This is a special one, I'm really looking forward to it. It's a Saturday night free tv game, just like the Giants/Cubs matchup that started all this two years ago. That night is one of my favorite ToO moments, this game is going to bring back some great memories. Just the anticipation already is. :) All are invited to come by, the game is on Fox so anyone interested can watch!

Apparently that was just one of multiple game options on Fox, though none of the sources I had confirmed the broadcast with indicated that, so things didn't go as planned. But it was still really fun because it's the hanging out with friends that makes these great! Thanks to KF for making it work despite the hiccup!



Really short notice, but the next game is in less than an hour! (ToO was down yesterday so I couldn't announce it when we scheduled it.)
