Everything Old is New Again

The current cap logo of the San Francisco Giants

[dropcap style=”font-size: 55px; color: cyan;”]E[/dropcap]ver since I was a little boy, I’ve followed the (mis)adventures of the San Francisco Giants.  My father took me to my first baseball game when I was in the first grade, about six months or so after my first San Francisco 49ers game.  When I was that young, I think …

It’s Bigger on the Inside

Yesterday’s prompt was about Guilty Pleasures, and I missed that one, so I’m going to take care of that with tonight’s post. When I think of what I consider to be a guilty pleasure is something that I like but I’m embarrassed to admit.  The problem with that is that I’m unabashed at proclaiming my …

34th New Year’s Resolutions

One of the new years’ resolutions I’m going to try and stick to for one year from the Fourth of July is to blog at least once a day (either publicly or privately).  So this means that sometimes you’ll see a post from me and sometimes you won’t.  This particular resolution will be judged solely …

Olympic Fever, Baby!

Every year since I could remember, my family and I have always watched the Olympics.

Of course, I will also throw some fandom behind the A’s because sometimes when Giants baseball kills me, it’s nice to bite into …

So, since pitchers and catchers have already reported for spring training, it seems appropriate to talk about death, right?  Well, I think it is.  I was browsing the ol’ livejournal friends’ list and I stumbled upon a post in the Star Trek community that said for a chunk of change, you could be buried in …

Indicted don’t mean Convicted

So, Barry Bonds was indicted today.  And if you thought that was a metric fuckton of links, I only gave you five of the five thousand out there.  This was the story of the day on every major sports outlet, and I think the ten o’clock news led off with it tonight. My reaction can …

Pre-Monday Blues

As I was saying in yesterday’s post, being sick really sucks.  I had like two days of being sick that I had to weather through all the aching and pain of coughing your lungs out as the phlegm tries to escape.  But, anyway… enough grossness. Some good news came out of the long weekend.  I …

The Autumn Dream

I have awoken from the Autumn Dream. Some short comments: – akai SKY was awesome, and should have played last in the Battle of the Bands. – Stage Crew ruled all. – It’s too bad we never got the Internet to work. – I may be too old to pull 22 hour days. – My …
