2011 Baseball in Virginia: The Great JV Coaching Experiment Continues...

Yes, that's right folks, we are soon to be embarking on the newest installment of the Great JV Baseball Coaching Experiment (recently coined). I will be coachint the JV Team again this Spring and will be "playing" as a Warrior, this year against the Blue Devils of the past year's expedition into coaching highschool baseball.
I have to say that I have been extremely impressed by the veteran Head Coach that I will be working under, as well as the seasoned JV Head coach I will be directly working with. Awesome guys the both of them.
Major advantage: this year the other coaches are all older and more experienced than me.
Complete opposite of last year.
I am excited, the Brewers and O's have some exciting shit to dole out to their respective divisions, and I will be coaching first base (BACKBACKBACK).
life is good.

Looky Here: What Does One Beard Give To Another

From the cracked screw-down to the fuzzy corner, I am in love with this copy of this card. I never did own one. The closest I got was the factory set black box version. I hated it. I yoinked the griffey and traded the near-set for the 90score set. It has been a long wait, but it was all worth it. Not only is it an error, a Ripken, an O...but it has a nasty word on it. And it's mine.
I mean, if this doesn't get shown to all my non-card interested friends who are my age, they get weak. no one doesn't remember this in the back of their 12-year-old mind.
I got a few other cards in the pack and will show those later, when I figure out my new scanner.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I am going to go fire on some protesters real quick.
(not supposed to be funny)

more love.

BIG TIME: I'm On My Way I'm Makin' It

All is well with the world, The Green Bay Packers have their newest Lombardi that comes 14 years after my father and I celebrated a Superbowl win (superbowl is one word). I feel as comfortable about the NFL as I have in a while. It helps alot to be the...

Worst: Ever

Halftime show made me think fondly of halftime performances in the past...wft?
I liked the BEP video for "where is the love"...ever since that moment passed, I have wondered why they exist.

Before I Attempt To Sell Them: #/50 or Less

Just wanted to give you all a chance to trade for any of these before they head off to be sold for nominal fees (if any) on some auction site somewhere. Holler if you have interest.

Topps Gold and Television: Opiate of the Masses...#5

#5 of my top 5 Topps Gold parallel cards

Does anyone out there watch "Gold Rush: Alaska"? I mean, why is this show so watchable? do we feel like we could be there if we had the time?...that we could do better? I can't do anything but wince in pain as they prat-fall through their profane campaign for riches, nay substinance.
I wish them the best...but I can't look away...

Porcupine Creek has turned into a (sorry) "Set-Back Mountain"


It Is So Hard...:Packers Playoffs

It is such hard damn work looking this good...I can't tell if he meant to combine "Y" and "K" but damn, it's hard being a card and looking this good.

More Exciting: O's Signing Crazy People or MLBTVHD in my house?

Justin Duchsherer? I remember a great stretch back in 07-08 maybe, but dude is a patch-up pitcher. he's got holes everywhere, might be good on a hot night.
O's are going to be so much more entertaning this year... I guess if all the risks pay off, then we go to the playoffs against a disarticulated AL east?
should make for great I have MLBTV FINALLY. I have been watching retrospectives like a junky and am back in love with Chris Sabo at "Bag Three" again.
