See this kid?

This is what a kid with a ruptured ear drum looks like.  Actually, this is what a kid with his second lifetime ruptured ear drum looks like.  Hey Maddux.  Stop that.

You know how Daddy says I'm a good sleeper? Not when I have a ruptured ear drum.

Seven years

Apr 20, 2005
Seven years ago tonight Nomar Garciaparra was injured in a game vs. St. Louis.  I witnessed this just after dinner at Bonefish in Knoxville, TN while good having some good old fashioned Cubs fan vs. Cardinals fan banter with the barkeep at the restaurant just before leaving for a jazz club.  See Leah - I do remember important dates.

For the love of all that is good Garza....

You can throw the ball 60' 6" in the mid 90s and consistently hit your spot in the catchers mitt. You really should be able to get the ball from the mound to first base.

Easter Egg Hunt

I recall digging through snow to find Easter eggs on occasion in the past so I won't complain about green grass and kids in short sleeve shirts (well, except Gillian - she's cold no matter what).

Caution: Your monitor may explode

Bill Murray throwing out the opening day first pitch at Wrigley to Woody may be too much awesome for your monitor to handle. My apologies if it blows up and you have to buy a new one.

A moment of public recognition...

I'd like to take a moment to publicly recognize....well, me.  You see I have amazing egg protection skills as clearly evidenced by taking Leah to school in the Science Center of Iowa's "When Things Get Moving" exhibit.  While her score of a 2 would be all that most could ever dream of, it still doesn't equal an unbroken egg.  "Almost made it" isn't good enough young lady.
Since this is neither hand grenades nor horse shoes, close just isn't good enough.

My smiling safe egg.  Because I kind of rule that way.
