Meeting Amanda McCarthy and Brooke Sizemore and a return to my home away from home

Meeting Amanda McCarthy and Brooke Sizemore and a return to my home away from home

Or: That awkward moment when you meet someone that you’ve interacted with on Twitter and can’t think of even 140 characters to say.   I have this friend Becky.  She’s a lawyer, but I try not to hold that against her.  She’s also my baseball buddy and a diehard Padres fan. So, it was only natural that when the Pads came to Oakland to play my beloved Athletics that we go to the game.  I managed to score a 4 pack of tickets and off we...

Why does the pig have to be you?

Why does the pig have to be you?

I do need to get off my butt and write up part 3 (or more) of my Vegas Vacation recap, but I’ve been swamped and haven’t had a chance.  I did feel the need to write something so I’m taking the opportunity to showcase a couple of incredibly nerdy things that I like and think you should too.   The first is obviously The Micros.  If you haven’t watched the series then stop right now, Taylor Caby would not approve.  Go fire up Youtube and...

It’s a bigger issue than we may want to admit.

It’s a bigger issue than we may want to admit.

  So the month of April was a bit of a rollercoaster for me.  I started the month with a quick trip to Oakland to see part of the A’s opening series vs Seattle.  Then a few days later I was off to spend a week in Chicago.  A lot of people have that one “dream” city that they would love to visit.  For most it’s some place like New York or Paris.  For me it was Chicago.  Three years ago I got to spend about a day and a half there and go...
