What Floats your Boat?

My 6 month old niece and my 4 year old nephew and his best buddy all going to their first ballgame today. They had a pretty good game. The boys got baseballs from Ozzie Guillen, they met Billy, and they got on TV (Cubs broadcast.) My niece spent the 7th inning stretch on the dugout with Billy and she got on TV too (Marlins broadcast.) I guess the Marlins announcers even talked about my niece.

Oh, and what is probably most important around here; they all got jerseys and hats. B)

My nephew Thomas (primary home jersey) and his best buddy Jake (orange alt) with their baseballs and getting on TV with Billy.

Finally, I think they may have talked their parents into getting Uncle infrared an orange Marlins replica jersey for his birthday.

Looks like Jake is well versed in the world of giving a quality thumbs up! Looks like they both had a blast.

Nice. Get 'em into sports young! And at the risk of having my masculinity called into question, that's a pretty darn adorable baby.

And on the subject of boat floaters, today I have officially been married half of my life. 21 years, and she still puts up with my crap.

My planned summer and fall is floating my boat.

In May I'm going to Italy for a family members wedding. I plan to do a Minor League ballpark tour in late June through the Appalachians and area. In October the plan is to drive the Blue Ridge Parkway to see the colours and catch a West Virginia football game.

Add all that to my already completed trips to England in February and to Los Angeles in March, this year is looking to be one of my most memorable yet.

She is adorable. Anyone who questions our masculinity for thinking so will surely have bad names and insults hurled their way. B)

Wow. 21 years. Nice work.

Disc golf on the warmest day of the year in one of the most beautiful spots in the world.

And speaking of one of the most beautiful places in the world, I know this semi-secret spot in my home town that has the most amazing view of the lake, and last night I took that special someone to that secret spot to watch the sunset.

Needless to say, she was very impressed :)

Yesterday The hipsters at my school who do the morning announcements played Bob Marley's "One Love" for 420 instead of the usual dubstep/underground rock crap they usually play.

Also Yesterday in general. Won't go into details but my day yesterday was just flat out awesome.

My youngest brother (8 yrs old) got a tooth pulled a few days ago, but had forgotten to place the tooth under his pillow for the Tooth Fairy until last night. I was home babysitting him because my parents were celebrating thier anniversary in Park City, so I was given the green light to "be the Tooth Fairy" for the night. I gave my brother $4 (the remaining 1's in my wallet) instead of the usual $1 or $2 he's usually recieved because he was (quoting the note I left him :P) "really good for the dentist." Seeing him hold up his cash first thing in the morning exclaiming "I got FOUR dollars!!" totally made my day, it was great to see him that happy about it.

I think you meant: "Watch the sunset."

The new engine went in my Charger yesterday. I'm hoping by the end of the week I'll find out if it runs!

Well I got a retweet from Kenny Lofton last week, my all-time favorite baseball player.

& that was not long after getting a reply from Mark Shapiro (President of the Indians) on twitter.

Pretty cool!

Love those things, always fun.

My friend Jason jumped on my podcast this afternoon and just friggin' nailed it. We talked about the NFL draft and the Bears and I was blown away by the quality stuff he brought to the table.
