August 2nd – The day after the 1st…

mushu

Good day! Thank you for reading today’s blog post or posts…depending upon how motivated I let myself get. For those intently wondering, there are still no leaked reports to the interweb about a possible Snakes on a Plane 2 movie script or Broadway hopeful play script. I’ve tried to leak one myself but the web at large has categorically rejected it. C’mon how hard can that script be to do? The first one got made and the premise there was toilet paper weak.

Silly Friday!!!

Here is what I posted on my Facebook account today for giggles:

Can anyone give directions to Braavos? Someone needs to travel there to begin training as a Faceless Man. Asking for a friend…

Tuesday July 3rd…I think it was the fourth of July

Good day! I was listening to the Chicago tune, Saturday in the Park on the way into work this morning. Great tune. They don’t make music like that anymore.

fireworks

Fun fact: Although this song was recorded in the fall of 1971, it was released to radio in July 1972…which was right after I was born! Crazy feeling old! But regardless it’s a great song. Every day’s the fourth of July… Continue reading “Tuesday July 3rd…I think it was the fourth of July”

Jurassic Tuesday

Good afternoon!

Tonight I am supposed to drive to the stadium to see my Indians play the Cardinals but Mother Nature seems a bit weepy so the game may be delayed or postponed. If such should happen, my backup plan would be to see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom again!  Continue reading “Jurassic Tuesday”

Stuff on my Desktop

Tuesday clean up in progress! It’s time to delete some of the silly stuff I saved to my desktop over the last few days. Feel free to interpret or judge as you will!

Hi to all those not disturbing the mojo of other people for no reason!

Peace

If I had five million dollars…

Good morning and welcome to June 5th 2018. What’s news and interesting? Do you know Bill Gates? Asking for a friend.

Paper Airplanes

Sometimes it seems like nothing, and I mean virtually nothing, is within our control. At times like these I fall back on a sentiment from a cheesy little movie I truly enjoy called The Replacements. The main character in the made-up football flick is Shane Falco. During the course of the movie we get bits and pieces of his current life and the backstory that the ‘present day’ person is built upon. Shane’s character has a minute in time where he is addressing his teammates in the locker room. This is a vulnerable moment where he relays a fear to try to unite his teammates. His analogy is about the pitfalls of his playing career. He labels his fear: quicksand; I’ve stolen the passage and pasted it below: Continue reading “Paper Airplanes”

GOT  DRAGONS? – GAME. OF. THRONES.

Hello! Today is May 22nd 2018 A.D.

As of the writing of this blog post I have seen up through season 7 episode 1 of The Game of Thrones HBO series. There are six more episodes on the DVDs at home if I recall correctly. For the avid fans, you are probably like “what the heck is taking you so long to finish those?” While I do enjoy the series, I will admit I find the seasons to be a grueling grind at times. So often the show’s writers revel in killing off characters, after it took so much effort for me to finally appreciate them for their badness or goodness. It is reasonable to understand that the loss of a notable character creates drama and impact, but sometimes the deaths and innumerable weddings tend to blend together in an inevitable conveyor belt process that chafes just as pressing exposed skin against a cycling belt sander ribbon.

May 7th Cleveland Indians Report

Good afternoon and welcome to my blog. A few times each year I will take to this forum to discuss my favorite baseball team, the Cleveland Indians. Unlike some baseball fans who only gripe about the problems with their team or are completely bias when it comes to their favorites, I break down my team in an honest fashion and at least offer semi-reasonable solutions. Also when I perceive weakness with a player or position or unit, I suggest a solution or point out how the problem could have been avoided. So with the tracks greased, let’s shove off and see how much speed we can pick up before the termination point! Continue reading “May 7th Cleveland Indians Report”

May the 4th…

Stop right there. I know mentally there are some of you already gearing up your Star Wars references. I’ve been on Facebook and Twitter since early this morning so the bombardment has only grown in momentum. But if you must, go ahead and sling about your Star Wars forced fourth references.

Random Things at Random Times

Good afternoon and welcome!

For the regular readers: Hi, how ya doin?

For the unsuspecting others who landed here via the hands of fate (or a search engine), you may be in for a treat! Or possibly just in for a head-scratcher of a time. Continue reading “Random Things at Random Times”

Tuesday Picture Fun – 03-27-2018

Sometimes I cannot function well enough to put together two to eight thousand words like I would like to…so on those days I grab a bunch of random pictures and let them speak for me. Today’s pictures depict, well, you tell me.

Have a great day and let me sort out my brain for extended word related content.

Peace.

 

MLB Salary Crisis

Good day. I come to you under the direst of circumstances to talk about what is plaguing Major League Baseball today: Player salaries. There it’s out. Now we can stop ignoring the butterfly in the room…or was it an elephant? Who knows.

Since the 2017 World Series ended and free agency opened up, there have been more than a few player movement deals but not nearly as many as in previous years. For whatever reasons, during this off season the general managers have drawn their line in the sand and shown actual restraint. It has been spooky. Normally by this time in spring training, fans have a plethora of signings to mull over and jabber about for the good and the bad. ‘Franchise X grossly overpaid for this player to fill a need but so did about a dozen others.’ Continue reading “MLB Salary Crisis”
