I had a few brothers and sisters in a box at a breeder, and my owner was looking for a friend for her first budgie. She eventually chose me.

  TO ALL BIRDY BASEBALL PLAYERS AND FANS
AS YOU NO DOUBT ALREADY KNOW OUR DEAR CO-FOUNDER NORMAN RECENTLY RAN FOR BOTM, AND LARGELY BECAUSE HIS MOM MOVED IN THE MIDDLE OF HIS CAMPAIGN HE WAS UNABLE TO PROPERLY DO THE POLITICAL MANUEVERS NECESSARY FOR A VICTORY. HE LOST, AND WE ARE ALL VERY SADDENED BY THIS. IT IS A LOSS FOR ALL OF US.
THEREFORE IT IS MY PROPOSAL, SECONDED BY ASHA, THAT WE DECLARE NORMAN THE "BIRDY BASEBALL'S TOP BIRD". THIS IS NOT THRU BC, BUT THRU OUR OWN GROUP OF PLAYERS AND FANS. PLEASE POST YOUR SUPPORT ON THE BIRDY BASEBALL LEAGUE PAGE #123746, SO NORMAN WILL KNOW THAT HE IS TRULY LOVED AND RECOGNIZED BY HIS FELLOW BIRDIES.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND ATTENTION,
KIDDO

Your King flying by today to see that all is well with you and your family. I want to know that those in my Kingdom can truly say, "Life is Good".

If I might, I'd like to remind my fellow feathered friends of the potential joy that lies in visiting both Dewey-BOTM hopeful (110401) and Peanut (25589) our current Princess of the BC. Wouldn't want you to miss out on such a wonderful opportunity!

You do? You really think I'd be great? Well, that means a lot to me. Parakeets have not often been in that winner's box on the BC Homepage. While Duty was our Prince of bird channel I went and checked out all the previous BOTW winners and found only one budgie as a winner of the award. Duty was the second. I, if I'm so lucky, will the the third. I hope there'll be lots more after me... we little birds love that spotlight as many as any of the bigger birds, right? Thanks for the votes you've contributed to my collection this week. With your help, I hope this Quest becomes a reality on Monday morning. T '>

So good to hear from you. Glad to know all is well CA. My dad is visiting your wonderful state at this very moment and has just sent me and mom a picture of Mt. Whitney from his cell phone. It take some serious wing flapping to get to the top of that one!

That millet you saw on my page, I posed with that mound of marvelous stuff in light of the fact I'm now in the running for botw. Don't know which birdie put my name on the list but apparently somebirdie thought me worthy of the esteemed honor. Now I must work diligently to make this happen so that I don't disappoint them. The millet was featured as a thank you to those who might happen by to vote. Hope you helped yourself to some. If not, here, I'll leave you and Skittles a sprig to share. How about that. -::::::::::::. Maybe you'll come back by tomorrow and see what tantalizing treat is there for Tuesday.

  It is with Great Sadness...
...That I am here to let you know that Betty, our right fielder, passed away last evening. Our team has lost yet another great player, the BC another sweet bird, and this blue boy, the love of his life.

Life has sad moments and this is one of them for me.

In honor of our fallen teammates the following message has been posted on the Baseball Page from The League Commissioner:

For the remainder of the season all Bird Channel Baseball League players, coaches, and umpires will wear black armbands in memory of Betty, Lattie, and Pebbles. We know this cannot fill the hole left by their passing but we hope it will show our respect.

Is this not the kindest of acts our fallen players are being shown? I remain proud to be a KEVLAR KEET and will wear this badge not only in rememberance of our friends who have gone before us but in honor of the friends we have in the here and now who share in our sorrow and celebrate the memories.

  Here's Your Red Feather!!
Keets Rip Redtails
Most Bird Channel Baseball League observers looked at the Kevlar Keets’ recent upset of the league-leading Savage Sennies as something they would not be able to repeat. Maybe they were wrong as on Wednesday the Keets kept their bats in overdrive and ripped the Redtail Killer CAGs 34-14.
The game was tied at 2-all in the bottom of the second when the Keets burst out with seven runs as IRIS and Sidney hit SOLO HOME RUNS and Henry jacked a three-run shot. The Keets followed that with a four-run third as Lattie Jr. hit a two-run homer and the Keets led 13-2.
The Redtails tried to crawl back in the game with 10 runs in the top of the fourth as Sheba hit a three-run triple, Munchkin hit a two-run triple and Gabriella homered with one birdie on base. The Keets said “I’ll see your ten runs and raise you one as they blasted out eleven in the bottom of the inning. Betty. It is, and Mr. Birdie led off with singles to load the bases and Jazzy cleared them with a grand-slam home run. Duty hit a solo shot and Lattie Jr. and Turk reached base. Henry doubled in Duty and Sidney walked to load the bases again. Betty singled in Lattie Jr. and IRIS CLEARED THE BASES with a triple. She later scored on Tweety’s single and the Keets led 24-12 and coasted to the win as hurler Duty shut the Retails out over the final four innings.
Sheba drove in three to lead the Redtails. Arthur, Munchkin, Gabriella, and Layla all drove in two and Mowgli, Grady, and Ruby drove in one each.
Jazzy pushed six runs across to lead the Keets while Henry drove in five and Iris and Lattie Jr. drove in four each. Tweety, Sidney, and Getty drove in three each, Turk, Duty, and Mr. Birdie two apiece.

Hope this makes your day. I know it did mine! T '>

  BIG GAME TODAY, Iris!
We're up against the Savage Sennies, the toughest team in the Talon League. On top of that, we're playing in a packed stadium today at HersheyPark as part of the Rio & Ruby Anniversary Celebration. (The Sports Report will be posted on Rio's page 12707 at about 12 EST) No game has been more important than this one! This is our chance to show that despite our many losses, we are an incredible team if not only for the sense of Pride and Spirit we display when it comes to a love of the game. We've got to pull down those caps, pull up the pants, and stroll out onto that ball field like we own the place and know the future. Yeah, that's it... CONFIDENCE!!

The team needs your awesome catching wing at short field in its finest form today, Iris — that same fine form you've displayed all season.

  WAY TO GO, IRIS!
This Sports Report was too good not to share with you.

Keets Klobber Senegals
The Kevlar Keets responded to the pep-talk from their manager Turk and flexed their feathers Thursday on the way to a 21-18 win over the tough Super Senegals. The tough little birds powered eleven home runs in the contest and left their opponents mumbling about performance enhancing millet spray.
The Keets got on the scoreboard first in the top of the first inning as Duty and Lattie connected for back-to-back jacks. Turk tripled and Henry lost one over the fence as the Keets took a 4-0 lead. The Keets were still flying high in the top of the second inning as Mr. Birdie tripled and scored on a single by Tweety. Jazzy homered to drive in Tweety and Duty hit a solo shot as the Keets now led 8-0.
The Senegals chipped away at the lead and had cut it to 12-8 entering the seventh but the Keets got two-run shots from Betty and Tweety to extend the lead to 16-8. Betty added another two-run jack in the eighth to boost the margin to 18-8.
The Senegals finally put on their hitting cleats in the bottom of the eighth as they sent eleven birdies up to bat with all of their runs scoring after two outs had been recorded. Lover Boy and Erin Amber reached base and scored ahead of a home run by NY Mango. Lola and Sam singled ahead of a triple by Lars. Max tripled in Lars and then scored ahead of a home run by Pico. Gus added a solo shot and the Sennies had cut the lead to 18-17.
The Keets added three runs of insurance in the top of the ninth and allowed only a solo home run from Erin Amber in the bottom of the inning as they won by the final margin of 21-18.

I think I should suggest to the rest of the team to get a little Wheat Grass in before every game; it might be what gives you such excellent ball playing skills. Great coverage of the Short Field you had. Your team appreciates it. T '>

Well, the ball is not rolling in The KEVLAR KEETS' favor. Not in the least. Our Saturday game against the macaws went to the Big Guys. If you've not been by the BC League page, it's worth the trip to read the write up from that day. Apparently, my fellow 'Keets, we are somewhat of the darlings of the BC League! That fact though does not save us from loosing a game. On the contrary... unfortunately.

I was to be here this evening to prepare you for tomorrow's game against the Brazilian Bombers but much to my surprise, the game has already been played. (Maybe your Coach has been hit in the head one too many times by a fly ball and I just don't know which day it is anymore.) Interestingly enough, after Asha chastised the Macaws for beatin' up on us little guys, she and her team came out and promptly repeated the beating. Yes, we lost. Again.

I don't know what to tell you, Team, other than if we can't win this series with our baseball talents, let's win the hearts of our competitors by being cheery, outgoing, friendly, and eternally upbeat. Isn't that what a Budgie's famous for anyway?

My cap's off to all of you, for being here for your team, time after time.
I'M PROUD TO BE A KEVLAR KEET. Hope you are too. T '>

P.S. Is that a new picture of you and Skittles eating wheat grass? Maybe I need to have the whole team nibbling that stuff right before a game.
