I feel bad for Dusty Baker

I feel bad for Dusty Baker
The first game of the National League Championship Series gets started in about an hour. Cubs vs Dodgers. The Cubs looking to repeat as champions. The Dodgers looking for their first trip to the World Series in almost thirty years. Not there again are the Washington Nationals. Not there again is Dusty Baker…and I’m feeling... Read more »

The Whorification of Wrigley Field

The Whorification of Wrigley Field
It was September 4, 2005. Jimmy Buffett played the first of two shows at Wrigley Field, in Chicago. Wrigley had been used as a home field for other sports teams besides the Cubs. The Chicago Bears of the NFL and the Chicago Sting of the North American Soccer League had played their games there. This... Read more »

The Week in Review: July 24-31

Let's start with a state. Texas has decided they want their own transgender bathroom law. Apparently it worked out so well for North Carolina, that Texas has decided they need one, too. Apparently they didn't believe the billions in lost revenue from the boycott of NC over their bill. Dudes in Texas, your state has more places to lose these events and you're going to lose maybe five times what North Carolina did. Here's some financial advice, don't do this. Here's some human decency advice, don't do this.
I got a little behind so this is more like the week and a half in review. That’s cool because it gives more time for the nuttiness to show up. This week, politicians, commentators and even states got, to paraphrase Mooch, fucking crazy. Here’s a look at that craziness. That’s all for this week. It... Read more »

Don't wait to do something you feel is important because next year is never guaranteed

Don't wait to do something you feel is important because next year is never guaranteed
I was planning a trip to the Phoenix area for last March. I had a few people to see and multiple things to do but at the top of the list was going to see the Cubs in Spring Training. I wanted to watch a practice on their back fields with my fellow blogger/friend John... Read more »

The Week In Review: June 26-July 2

We start with a Trump tweet. In this one, he blames Obama for not doing anything after finding out about Russian hacking in the election. DUDE...you should be on your knees thanking him every day. If he said a word, you'd still be selling property and cheating people out of money. I'm pissed at Obama because he kept it on the downlow. Who knew Don and I would ever agree on anything?
It’s been a great week. Lot’s of snarky stuff in politics, music, sports and food. Let’s bring it on!!! That’s all for another week. Enjoy your holiday.   Related Post: Can Donald Trump Embarrass himself and us anymore? Type your email address in the box and click the “create subscription” button. My list is completely...

Miguel Montero becomes an American citizen

Miguel Montero becomes an American citizen
It was a horrible night for a ball game in Chicago. It started ninety minutes late because of the weather. Rain and the temperature in the 40’s is a bad combination. The Phillies scoring seven runs in the first two innings didn’t help. SEVEN! All of the above meant it was going to be a short... Read more »

A personal look at 2016: Goodbye and don't come back

The year started with the death of David Bowie. It was shocking until we found out he had been fighting Cancer for 18 months. It was the start of the year of death for musicians. Frey, Prince, Russell, Haggard, Cohen among the many.
It’s the final day of 2016. That marks the end of the fourth calendar year of this blog. FOUR YEARS!!! Wow…is it like college where I get a piece of paper and have to leave? I started writing this as a way to tell stories about my life with Parkinson’s Disease. I figured there were... Read more »

Donald Trump's election victory took the joy out of the Cubs winning the World Series

Donald Trump's election victory took the joy out of the Cubs winning the World Series
Pooh: I’m so sick of this election. Trump, Hillary, Bannon, Hannity, MSNBC. Has baseball started yet? Piglet: It’s still November. Pooh: Fuck! I’m sitting in a Starbucks in Wrigleyville. It’s about a block from Wrigley Field. For about a week, it was the happiest place on Earth. Wrigley Field, not Starbucks. It’s now two weeks... Read more »

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
