Morning David and everyone soon to be up! Was late leaving for work, the door knob on the front door decided it was no longer a team player. After a quick disassembly and reassembly, it decided to cooperate. Have to pick a new one up on the way home today.

I'd say either a cheap tree, or a cheap artificial one. $70 seems rather steep though.

Toronto, if you win the pennant next year, you can thank us. If history is any indication they will all be playing in next year's All Star Game. Ask Miguel Cabrera. This stinks.


Hey thanks for beefing up our Team CJ.

As for what did you get... if we only have garbage, what else can we offer? We gave you the best of the pile...

Agreed. We did very well, only lost game 0-1 because of defense that we played. That was the difference in the players. I still have 4 months to think about it.

When CJ complains in posts like this, I hear him say "poor me. I live in a city with several pro sports teams, warm weather, ocean, and bikinis". Pardon me if I don't cry for you Argentina.

You know, I really do agree with you, but I think an artificial tree is best for their situation. A real tree can be a fire hazard, even if you're home to keep an eye on things and keep it watered. I, personally, wouldn't want to be away from home for a week and a half with one sitting in my living room, regardless the cost.

I saw the TV special a couple of years ago. It really is mindblowing seeing everything that goes into decorating for the holidays there. Makes me appreciate it all that much more.

I hate watching UK play Duke. One of them has to win, so I know before it even starts that I'll be disappointed at the end.

CJ, I feel sorry for you. When I saw the moves they made this last offseason, I thought maybe the culture of the front office would change with the move into the new stadium. Giancarlos Stanton's tweet said it all though.

If I was a taxpayer down there, I'd be p!ssed that they did this after getting a brand new stadium. I hope they have one of the lowest attendance rankings of any MLB team next year.

‘morning all…

Walked into a buzz saw at work this week after being out a couple days. That’s the punishment I get for taking time off and it likely won’t be much better for a while. But it was still worth it to take the break.

We did a bit of traveling and spent some time in Indianapolis. Unfortunately I was a might busy and didn’t have any extra time to try and meet with any of other dads up that way. The rest of the trip however was a smashing success. A ton of work… but still a great success (which I may get around to talking about on the brag wall latter on).

So, our thoughts on Indi…

- Nice town. Y’all have a very interesting mix of the old and the new. The Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument and the Memorial park a few block up were particularly interesting.

- Roads are pretty easy to work with (more so then those around here)

- Lucas Stadium is one big-a** monster. There must be five miles of tunnels underneath the thing, and it’s easily one of the nicest fields we’ve encountered this season.

- Shapiro’s makes some mighty fine Pastrami, so y’all got that goin’ for you…
which is nice.

- and finally… you didn’t have to go and blow up a whole neighborhood just to get us to go back home, we were leaving in the morning anyway. (I’m sure Andy had something to do with that one). Seriously though… we were only a mile or two from where that occurred; frightening stuff. Our prayers go out to those that lost much to that unexpected disaster.


Well… I need to get back to work so I’ll try to check back in the near.
Prayers where needed, congrats all around and howdy to any new members.

Good Morning fellow dads, hope all is well, anything new going on? Thinking about putting DD in swimming lessons, she loves being in the water, at AK she kept on asking if we could go back to AoA and swim, and i hardly can get her out, she loves swimming more the AK!!!! I think there is a place that does lessons during fall and winter months.

I'd make fun of you, but the Red Sox aren't doing much better and it would come back to bite me in the @$$. Now that Toronto has improved, I guess that puts us behind them too in the east. At least we'll be able to beat the Marlins, maybe.
