Hells Bell’s

I still have not seen Rogue One. That’s not really the important part of the story. It’s more the fact that I did not, thankfully, have a stroke this past weekend. Instead, it was just a case of Bell’s Palsy. Now because my wife and I welcomed our first child into this world over the…

Hey

While some (my wife) feel that my son's first word was "mama," I think he finally had a conversation as he answered my "hey" with a "hey" of his own.This went on for what was probably a few hours before we both tired of the exercise."Hey."It's a grand example of pith and concision. My son…

Teething – Day: Who knows?

There was a time—some tell me that it wasn’t all that long ago—when I would wake up bleary eyed on a Wednesday after a long night of carousing on a Tuesday. Those aches and pains are nothing compared to the exhaustion that follows a night sharing a house with a teething baby. The night is…

Marriage: Day 9

Interesting fact about marriage gentleman, you can’t use your bed. You can’t plop on it. You can’t jump on it. And god forbid if you actually lay down on it. I have also been introduced to the decorative pillow. This is a piece of furniture whose sole purpose in life is to annoy me. I…

Marriage: Day Two

The single most life-changing weekend of my life has come and passed. What I am left with is memories of an emotional event, and some semblances of a hangover. I couldn’t have asked for a better family to marry into, or one that has sent me off into the land of unreal responsibility. Speaking of…

almost

I woke up today with a spring in my step. Remarkable, considering I’ve been sleeping on an air mattress for the past week. The new house needs some cleaning, I have a pain in my toe from a gout flare up, my stomach is still gurgling from some dish I ate a few nights ago,…

Most things…

Super Pho and Teriyaki

So continuing with my on again off again World Cup Bender, I came home last night and died. I literally died. It wasn’t a nap because when I woke up I felt like a zombie and my apartment smelt like death. In comes little brother, just in time to drive to get us something to…

Edinson Volquez

Another MLBer succumbs to the pressures and wiles of performance enhancing drugs. Edinson Volquez who is renowned for little will serve a 60 game suspension for using PEDs. His suspension can start during his already lengthy disabled list stay. So sadly, the only true punishment he will receive is the initial announcement that he cheated…

AL West

MarinersAngelsRangersA’s Things should be tight out west.  There is no clear cut power house in this small division.   The two teams that will vie for control of the division may have their fortunes told by one key acquisition, Chone Figgins.       The Angels did not tout a powerhouse team last year.  What they did well was…

NL West

RockiesDodgersDiamondbacksGiantsPadres Everyone is always dogging on this division.  It used to be with good cause.  However this group is deceptive.  With the Rockies making noise in the playoffs in 2009 and the Dodgers beating the Cards in the divisional series, there is an argument to be made that this may be one of the stronger…
