Thomecoming At Progressive Field

Welcome Thome!

My all time favorite baseball player is Jim Thome.  When he left my beloved Cleveland Indians in 2002 it was a very sad day for me.  So when I heard the news the other night that the Indians had claimed him off waivers from the Twins you can imagine how I felt… I wasn’t sure if I was dreaming or not.  I was elated when I woke up the other morning and read the news … Continue reading

Got Midgets?

Chewie & The Midgets

I recently attended an Akron Aeros ballgame on a beautiful August evening in downtown Akron.  And while it was fun to watch the game at a great ballpark (Akron lost… I think) the “main event” for the evening was a different sport altogether.  Two words… midget…. wrestling. Now before you get your panties in a bunch about me using the term “midget” let me remind you that the event was promoted by the Aeros as … Continue reading

Lyrics That Touch – Firework By Katy Perry

Firework - Katie Perry

If you’re like me you heard this song WAY too often over the 4th of July weekend this past year.  For me it started off as a catchy tune that I got sick of.  I had on the iPod shuffle this morning and it came on.  I don’t know that I’ve ever really listened to the lyrics before but if you really look at what Ms. Perry is singing about it’s a pretty damn moving … Continue reading

A Busy 4th Of July Weekend

Watching The Fireworks

Holiday weekends are great and this past one was no exception.  We were jam packed starting on Friday night when we got together to celebrate Gramp’s birthday (pics forthcoming).  As you can tell from the photo here the kids really enjoyed their weekend and for once we were able to tire them out (3 nights in a row out WAY past their bedtime will do that I suppose). Saturday was “get away day” as we … Continue reading

Put Me In Coach… I’m Ready To Play

The Boys On The Teeball Field

Summer is in full swing and in our household that means BASEBALL!  Both of the boys started their t-ball seasons last week which for those non-parents out there is just an awesome experience.  G had played last year, but this is the first time out for C and I’m happy to say that so far he seems to really be enjoying it. Naturally nothing in life is easy so we weren’t thrilled to find out … Continue reading

R.I.P. Macho Man Randy Savage

The "Macho Man" Randy Savage

It’s with a heavy heart that I have to say goodbye today to one of my all time favorite wrestlers – The “Macho Man” Randy Savage.  Randy (real name Randall Poffo) passed away earlier today after a car accident.  Apparently he had a heart attack at the wheel while driving.  He was 58 years old. Randy Savage, best knowing for his time in the WWF with his wife/manager Miss Elizabeth, was one of the best … Continue reading

A Bit Of My Geek Collection

80's Toys

In a previous post I talked about how I’d recently gone through some boxes in the basement and pulled out some old toys, specifically my Devastator from back in the day.  That lead to a discussion on one of my favorite podcast’s Facebook page about our collections, etc.  I took this quick video to show a couple of my items and thought I’d share it here as well. It focuses on figures from the first … Continue reading

Chewie & Crewie: Some Quality Time With The C-Man

Yummy!

Once you have that second child your alone time with either one of them starts to really be difficult to come by.  Recently, the stars have aligned and I’ve gotten to hang out with my little man one on one.  The rest of this post is just going to be some pictures and videos with my comments.  If that sort of thing doesn’t interest you feel free to move along 😉  However, if you’re interested … Continue reading

Charlie Sheen Winning

YouTube is an amazing website.  As I’m not taking today off to partake in St. Patrick’s Day events like the rest of Cleveland, I was just going through a couple of my favorites and thought I’d share them.  Enjoy! I know I’m late to the Charlie Sheen game but this is nothing short of EPIC WINNING.   In all honesty, the guys that put this together are SUPER talented. One of the most inspirational speeches ever … Continue reading
