10. The relievers of the Rangers waiting for Darivsh to finish warming up in the pen. Look at them beautiful rookies sporting Cowboy hats. Martin Perez took over Robbie’s back pack and little horsey also. 

Oh man. March went by too fast- I was swamped by so many different assignments and working at the restaurant- But it was definitely a good month! 

Got to kick start on my other series of portraits- having lots of fun doing it. 

Anyhow, I’ve been neglecting this blog- felt really bad- I am back at now! with the start of the 2012 MLB season. LOL

I was able to goto the game and watch Darvish’s debut game. It was tough to see him struggle in first inning- throwing 42 pitches- with 4ERs, but thanks to powerful line up he received a W. A long season has started, but for sure going to be fun!
