White Sox may be looking to deal Garland

Jon Garland could be the odd man out in the White Sox rotation after the Javier Vazquez acquisition.

Garland and I are both alums of one of the Los Angeles Unified School District's ugliest schools. And keep in mind that it was almost completely rebuilt after the 1994 Northridge earthquake. The building that housed my "permanent records" was compeletely destroyed. However the school has a fairly good track record in sports, especially baseball.

I hope UCLA isn't going to revoke my diploma now since I can't prove I graduated from high school.

What a tangent. I'll take Garland, if he can be... extended.

How 'bout an all-Kennedy HS trade involving Garret Anderson for Jon Garland? If the Angels need to even things out a bit, they could thrown Bob Timmermann into the deal as the proverbial PTBNL (but only after it can be proved that he went to that school).

You could also add Terrmel Sledge in and make it a 3-way deal with the Rangers.

Yikes, based on my English above, I would have a hard time proving I graduated from high school.

I ran into my 10th Grade English teacher as an adult. She was married to my U.S. History teacher. I was faced with the problem of how to address teachers from your youth when you're now an adult.

I took the coward's way out and just didn't say their names.

My basketball coach was my son's golf coach. I still called him "Mister" 25 years later. Once a Mister to me, always a Mister.

Whatever you say Mr. Lederer.

6 I went on a field trip with my girlfriend (she's a teacher) at the end of October with one of the clubs at her school. The club's advisor was my Economics teacher in high school. It was really hard not calling him "Mister".

(granted, it was only a ten year spread and not 25)

That's an interesting social situation. I moved three days after high school, so I've never run into it. Do you think Miss Manners has addressed it somewhere?
