Lately there has been a whole lotta sleeping going on in the country....here are some examples...


Report: Griffey slept in clubhouse

Though he may be 40 years old now, sometimes "The Kid" needs to sleep.

Seattle Mariners star Ken Griffey Jr. missed a chance to enter an unspecified game last week as a pinch hitter because he was asleep in the clubhouse, according to a report from the Tacoma News Tribune.

When pressed following the game as to why he had not used the left-handed slugger as a pinch hitter, Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu was evasive.

But according to two unnamed younger Seattle players who are both fond of Griffey, the future Hall of Famer had fallen asleep.

"He was asleep in the clubhouse," one player told the Tribune. "He'd gone back about the fifth inning to get a jacket and didn't come back. I went back in about the seventh inning -- and he was in his chair, sound asleep."

The second player, who is reported to know Griffey better, claims the scuffling slugger has had difficulty sleeping at home.

"He doesn't sleep well at night, he's away from his family, he's comfortable in the clubhouse," he told the Tribune. "They could have awakened him."

Griffey is batting .208 with just five RBIs for a last-place Mariners club that has struggled mightily in trying to get runs across the plate this season.




NY Mets broadcaster, Keith Hernandez Falls Asleep in Booth During Mets Game


Mets broadcaster Keith Hernandez provides definitive evidence that baseball will in fact bore you to sleep -- and if left untreated, possibly death. Cameras caught the former All-Star with his head buried on the desk in front of him, napping during the team's extra-innings game against the Giants Saturday.


..and last, but not least....



Lost star, Evangeline Lilly Falls Asleep, Misses Final Shot on 'Lost'[U]

Strange happenings and misfortunes are par for the course on 'Lost,' and, apparently, such things happen to the 'Lost' cast in real life too. Evangeline Lilly appeared on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated) and described how she inadvertently fell asleep on the last day of filming, and lost the original letter that Sawyer wrote to the con man responsible for his parents' death.

Lilly said that she intentionally visited the set on the final day to witness the last shot, but fell asleep in a trailer instead. "They didn't wake me up! Nobody woke me! I missed the whole thing," she said.


WoW...that got me thinkin', are people these days, having a much harder time getting to sleep, staying asleep??

I, myself, have always had a hard time getting and staying asleep once I finally fell asleep... and I've tried everything...

So, do you all have a hard time sleeping and what are some of your remedies??...

Now don't go fallen asleep on me now......

Blogger falls asleep while blogging. While alone in his home ThePurpleProphet fell asleep while typing the greatest blog ever. Sadly on two parts...the blog was never finished and ThePurpleProphet was never found since he was all alone and by himself.
So rest his legacy.

It's official Ken Griffey Jr. is washed up. He should just retire and fade away like he did when he played for the Reds.

If they were doing what they were supposed to being doing instead of logging on to AMD reading the blogs, none of this would have happened.

I don't sleep well. I can't figure it out. I toss and turn, but never make much progress. Sometimes it catches up with me and I will have one night of really sound sleep. I have tried everything and nothing keeps me in a full deep sleep. What to do...what to do???

Yeah, but in his defense, he and his team had a very late night game the night before.

As for Griffey, he seems to have gotten a lot lazier over the years when he was with my Reds. Glad we got rid of him two years ago.
