‘I miss baseball every day’: What a Nolan Arenado game day looks like with MLB on hold

I woke up at 10:30 this morning and ate my usual blueberry oatmeal with turkey bacon. I would have followed that by a couple of episodes of “The Office.” Stick with, like, Season 2 or 5. Those are my favorites. Dwight Schrute is my favorite character. When I wake up, my mind kind of starts going toward the game, so I’m trying to put myself in a good mood.

But it’s not game day. Now thinking about it, I didn’t realize how much I missed it.

Instead of being in Denver, I’m home in California. I still keep the breakfast pretty similar. I usually stick with oatmeal because I always try to keep my body feeling lighter. It makes me feel like I’m ready to go. Like I’m gonna go attack the day. It keeps me thinking positive.

If I had been in my apartment in Denver, I would be on my balcony. I have a little mini putting green, and I try to drain a couple putts just to get outside, get some fresh air. Then I’ll start to get ready.

Presumably, the fights with the general manager he doesn’t miss as much…..

The bb-ref virtual Rockies are 18-11.

Virtual Arenado's off to a .271/.356/.602 start. Virtual David Dahl is not hurt and is hitting .371/.421/.664. Looks like virtual Freeland's BABIP and/or strand rate luck is back, 2.06 ERA

Nolan is right, Season 2 of The Office is the one you want. I hope he's got a copy of the new oral history of The Office by my friend Andy Greene.

Season 2 was a long time ago and I don't think I've seen those episodes since they were actually new. That wouldn't be a bad thing to revisit.

If you liked Parks and Rec, they are doing a show Thursday night.
