Nobody Went Into the Baseball Hall of Fame Yesterday
I would first like to acknowledge that I think it is funny MLB Network had 8+ hour coverage on this and nobody went in. What a day for those folks. It’d be like being told as a child if you do all your chores during the day you can go to the game that night,Continue reading “Nobody Went Into the Baseball Hall of Fame Yesterday”
Rest In Peace Hank Aaron: The Home Run King.
Coolest moment of my life: I worked for the Braves at Turner Field in 2013 at a merchandise store.

I get out of the way, and it pulls up right next toContinue reading “Rest In Peace Hank Aaron: The Home Run King.”

Remember Kobe, Stop Debating, and Start Appreciating.
Death is a scary and sometimes mysterious thing, but it is certain. It’s going to happen. And when it happens, sometimes it makes you think of things you don’t think of normally. You maybe even think of some things you should be thinking of normally, things that shouldn’t require a tragic death happening to makeContinue reading “Remember Kobe, Stop Debating, and Start Appreciating.”
State of the Union Address: The Bears Through 11 Games, and What’s to Come
Friends, Romans, Countrymen… Lend me your ears. The Chicago Bears, like most years, might legitimately be trying to kill me this year. The ups and downs of this season have been such highs and such lows, it’s been one of the more painful seasons to go through. In years past, we were bad (yes, IContinue reading “State of the Union Address: The Bears Through 11 Games, and What’s to Come”
