It's World Cup time, again. And I could make all kinds of snarky comments about the game of soccer. But really, it's just not worth it. It would be like being rude about beating a little kid in a race. So, to World Cup enthusiasts, let me just say this:Ooh! That's very nice. You're doing … Continue reading World Cup : Olympics
Still haven't posted about all the baseball games from my trip 4 months ago. Pathetic, really. I don't make New Year's resolutions, but if I did I'd resolve to be better about actually posting things here this year. We'll see.
My vacation, that is. I just left work and I'm not headed back until October. Saturday I fly out to meet my dad for a tour of baseball where we'll see six games in six days at six different parks. (We'll actually see seven games at seven parks, but the seventh game isn't consecutive with … Continue reading It Begins
On Saturday evening I was able to go to the M's game against the A's and use the company's season tickets. Well, a couple of them. I'm not sure how many they have.

There's an excellent article … Continue reading Spurs 1, Stern 0

The best part of the article though is the soccer snobs in … Continue reading "Soccer" isn’t an American term.
I hope that my kids will end up with the same attitude towards the awards for participation that Big Nate has.----------------Now playing: Yoko Kanno - Farewell Bluesvia FoxyTunes
Went and saw the M's play at the company's expense. Not just that, I got to sit in a "Private Suite" with the wife and a bunch of folks from work with their significant others. It's kinda like a luxury box style-sort-of-thing. Catered food (pizza, chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, tasty beverages, chips, etc) HDTV and … Continue reading Isn’t it a great day for baseball?
Which baseball player who played for only one team, has the most HRs?Answer here.
But I'm not.A-Fraud. A-Roid. Pay-Rod. Whatever you want to call him, it probably fits now. Alex Rodriguez was caught using steroids in 2003. Whether he's been using them since, who knows.As much as I dislike him, as much as I dislike the teams he's played for since leaving the M's and as unlovely a person … Continue reading You’d think I’d be happy,
