Oakland A's Socks Girl featured in Sketchball: Drawings from Oakland's Cheap Seats

I was honored at the ballgame the other day when another fan Michael Morgan approached me and asked if he could include "The Oakland A's Socks Girl" in his comic book, Sketchball! Flattered I immediately said yes (even tho I had really seen his work yet) Once I saw his work I knew I had made the right choice! Look for my original socks (below) in Issue 1 of Sketchball and coming up in the 2nd issue of Sketchball will hopefully include my luckiest pair of #OaklandSockSwag! :-) Here's a link and more info on the comic book! Enjoy!

"Oakland A’s Socks Girl is both a sports writer, and sports fashion trendsetter. When she’s not writing for or on her twitter account, she is showing off her trademark A’s socks. Twitter: @OaklandAsSocksGirl" - writing and artistic credit go to Michael Morgan, author and illustrator of the comic book, "Sketchball: Drawings from Oakland's Cheap Seats!"

So recently I was recruited to write about baseball for the up and coming website I am very flattered, nervous and VERY EXCITED about an opportunity to get my name out there as a legitimate writer! And having structure and someone to look up to (like my editors) and be accountable too will help because obviously I have trouble getting my blogs done! Tons of ideas but when it comes right down to it they never get finished and published! So this is the sort of gig I have been waiting for and it came to me! Here is a link to the first piece I contributed to for the site! Hope y'all enjoy it! It's not baseball - but football and while I don't know as much about football as baseball, I was able to take my knowledge along with a bit of research and contribute to the article:

The Garza Twitter Incident!

Never had time to actually write about the crAziness that was Matt Garza freaking out on Eric and Kaycee Sogard (yes, it's always a good plan to go off on a nice, quiet dude and his sweet pregnant wife on Twitter because he bunted and you didn't like it ... ok, wait! That's a bad plan isn't it? Good thinking Matt Garza!) But I think this photo sums it up! Anyone who's ever sat in the bleachers (or anywhere else for that matter) in Oaktown will get it! Hysterical! Oh the irony of it all! We are in the playoffs and they barely have a chance!! Let's Go Oakland!

Video Blog and Snap Chat randomness! (Please be patient ... some technical difficulties going on! ugh!)

So I learned how to make videos on Snap Chat today! Honestly I highly recommend this app! I've met cool people and you can take the most fun, hilarious videos and pics! If you have it and haven't added me please do! My username for Snap Chat is BullpenBrunette! Looking forward to hearing from y'all!

Also, using #SnapChat I found out how much fun and easy it is to make videos! Following are the first few Snap Chat vids just took tonight, like my first ever. I'm sure I look like the total baseball nerd that I am but who cares! Baseball hella rules over every sport! Anything can happen and you almost always have a chance to win the next day! I love how baseball is everyday for half the year ... truly the best sport ever!! But I am totally beginning to digress! Below are my first few Snap Chat videos, I'll use my actual camera if I decide to do an actual video blog! Then posts can be longer and I'm sure that the rest of them will be like this be accompanied by some written stuff .... so here goes! My first attempts at Snap Chat video making! lmao! I'm such a baseball nerd!! Gotta embrace it tho!! Let's Go Oakland! I Hella Love my A's!!

I couldnt get the SnapChat videos on here but you can see them (yeah they are a little embarrassing! lmao) on my YouTube channel: Oakland A's Socks Girl's You Tube Channel  There is also a link in the upper right corner of this page as well!

So I'm definitely gonna be starting a video blog on YouTube! So subscribe to my channel if you are interested!  Don't know when I am gonna start it but soon enough! Thanks! :-)
