Check, check, check. Play Ball.

Name: Strongbow Pear Cider
Type: perry
Venue: house

Review/notes: Strongbow perry is another industrial cider but it tastes like pears and is crisp and refreshing and not too sweet.  I got it for Jackie to have during the baseball game then forgot to get any beer for me, so there you have it.

It is still a week till Opening Day for Major League Baseball but the first game of the regular season was in the wee hours of Saturday morning when the Dodgers beat the Diamondbacks 3-1 in Sydney Cricket Ground, Australia.  I’ve got ESPN this year so my viewing will be more frequent, timely, LEGAL, and without voiceovers in Russian.  Because of the time difference, we’ll TIVO the games of interest but this removes one more thing from the list of what I miss about the States (cheap pitchers of beer and decent pizza are pretty much all that’s left and lately we’ve had remarkable luck with the pizzas).

  1. I’ve not lived abroad, but know from traveling how much one can miss particular things about a distant place. Though I’ve never met Jackie, I smiled to think of her enjoying the game with some cider. In the words of Jack Osbourne, “It’s the little things, Kelly.”
