Myles Monday Meltdown: Standings, Crowded NL Central, and Bote

I was in Texas this past week visiting some family and playing golf. My grandpa is now 99 (!) years old. He still lives at home alone (with some help from caretakers) and has his whits about him. It’s pretty incredible. I often think about what he’s witnessed in his lifetime: two world wars (one... Read more »

This past week, I drove with my fiancee to meet up with some of my other family who were vacationing on Vancouver Island. If you haven’t had the opportunity to get to that part of the world, I would highly recommend it. Beautiful scenery and the people couldn’t have been nicer. However, their brand of... Read more »

Myles Monday Meltdown: I Went to San Diego to See a Sweep
The title pretty much sums it up. But in case you didn’t read it for some reason, I went to San Diego this weekend to see the Cubs take on the Padres at Petco Park. I’ve had the opportunity to visit San Deigo a couple times, but I’ve never had the opportunity to take in a... Read more »

I’ve been trying to really hone my golf game this summer. My goal is to be able to have confidence in any shot I take. I’ve been playing since I was a kid, but I never really took practice seriously. I decided to change that. Typically I’ll be on the range 3-4 times during the... Read more »

I was out on vacation last week (one of the reasons why I didn’t write anything last Monday). It was a good week. We were able to spend some time with fam, I golfed, met Jordan Speith, and was able to listen to a lot of the Cubs games on the radio. I miss doing... Read more »

Myles Monday Meltdown: An Almost Sweep, Annoying Brewers, and Heyward Homered!
I watched a documentary on Stephen Spielberg last night. If you have HBO, I’d highly recommend it. I personally had no idea he was so successful so early into his career. That’s impressive. Jaws is what launched him into the mainstream. It’s also what completely ruined any chance that I’ll ever swim in the ocean.... Read more »

Myles Monday Meltdown: Monty, Lester, and a Big Week Ahead
I had the opportunity to either see Deadpool 2 or Ocean’s 8 yesterday afternoon. My first choice was the former, but I let my fiancee pick and so we saw latter. I don’t want to give anything away, but here was my takeaway: Saw Ocean’s 8 this weekend. It was fine. Just felt weird paying... Read more »

Myles Monday Meltdown: Javy, A MVP Bet, and WAR
My fiancee and I ate usually eat crappy food on Sunday afternoons. It’s our thing. During the week, we don’t really eat together (her a vegetarian and me a meat-eater) and usually we’re pretty healthy. Sunday, then, is our day to get something unhealthy together and chow down. Usually we default to pizza or Chinese... Read more »

Myles Monday Meltdown: All the plays

Myles Monday Meltdown: All the plays
The Cubs took three of four on the road in Cincinnati this weekend, which is good. That’s what you’re supposed to do against a team that just isn’t that great. There was a lot of drama, homers, and runs. So instead of rehashing everything in words, why don’t we just enjoy some of the top plays... Read more »

Myles Monday Meltdown: Javy Stuff, Willy is Good, and 4th Place?
I know I talk about the weather a lot. But man, it’s going to be 80 degrees in Seattle today. That’s insane. You know what’s even more insane though? The fact that no one in the pacific northwest has air conditioning. It’s just not a thing here. It’s not a thing here because “it doesn’t... Read more »
