Craziness is Like Heaven - Three Years of Marriage

9.24. Quick, do you know what that means? Certainly, the die hards and DP devotees will (or I hope you do) especially if you went through the Unity Road Writings which documented my thoughts and feelings leading up to marrying my wife. 

Nonetheless, those writings were roughly three years ago, because three years ago, I married the greatest tag team partner one could possibly have. While three years really has flown by since I traveled to Syracuse, New York to say "I do", what truly is flabbergasting (don't you just love that word?) is that I have been with my wife in some capacity for nine years now. Nine! 

Even scarier? Next year, when I turn thirty and we celebrate four years of marriage, that would make an even ten years. One third of my life. Jees. 

Anyway, in celebration for you cyber friends and followers to these very words I place on a screen so often and whom never made it to Syracuse three years ago, I figured I would post our song - you know, our song - which of course doubled as our first dance tune on 9.24, the original.

And to my lovely wife, who will read this, because she always does when things go live, because she asks "what are you writing about?" when I am doing so, to which I always respond with, "nothing" or something so outrageous that she would just leave me to punch the keys in thought - thank you for putting up with me, and thank you for being just as crazy now, as you were then. As always, craziness, your craziness, is like heaven. Happy 3rd Anniversary.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/15/18

3 Up
1. Bartolo Colon - Mannnnnnnn, this dude at 44 years old and at who knows how many pounds overweight, almost threw a perfect game against the defending World Series Champions on National television. Bartolo, don't you ever change. 
2. Beyonce - I probably could just leave this "UP" as just "Beyonce", and really, most wouldn't even bat an eye at it. Regardless, she earned it this week, slaying as always. Beyonce killed it at Coachella with some awesome performances, reuniting with Destiny's Child, and of course, making history as the first black woman to headline the festival. 
3. New York Mets - Even this Yankees fan has to give it up to the Mets and their hot start. They are playing some fun baseball, and well, it's backed by those big arms they need to rely on. Kudos to the Amazin's! 
3 Down
1. Philadelphia Starbucks - For those who don't understand "white privilege", here is an example of the opposite - two black men waiting…

March Sadness

This post has been coming for awhile, and it now seems like the best time to do so...
So, here goes...
Division I Basketball is getting more and more difficult for me to watch and support. 
Just like I once laid out regarding my ethical feelings towards the NFL (and really, football, overall), thus is the same credence and feelings I have developing for Division I Basketball - mainly the NCAA's approach to it. Now of course, my feelings aren't something new as many share my thoughts and opinions on this - the NCAA is corrupt and college basketball is a sham. But for me, it goes even deeper - certain programs, coaches, and communities enable this exploitation of young men. And yes, many shy away from that word, but that's exactly what college basketball has become, an exploitation of services.

Wrestlemania 34: Damn! That's a Dope Set...and Other Good Stories

What a weekend! Everything about Wrestlemania Weekend this year was fantastic. From Wrestlecon and all of the non-WWE companies putting on shows in New Orleans, to NXT, to of course the big show that holds it all together - Wrestlemania. 
Funny thing is, while I've watched countless hours of pro wrestling this weekend, the only thing surfacing to the top constantly was this very thought - Damn! That's a Dope set! Because you know what, it was. It sooooooo was! But that's just the geek in me that loves the creativity and aesthetics part of pro wrestling...or, just about anything event-related. 
With all of that said, here are some quick notes on Wrestlemania 34:

2018 Bucket List #2 - Visit Coors Field

You didn't think I would go to Denver and NOT visit Coors Field did you?

Of course not. The baseball junkie in me wouldn't allow it. And right before I headed to the airport, I dragged my colleagues to Coors Field for a Tour and even they were glad I did. Coors Field is a very underrated ballpark in terms of it's appearance and overall feel. 
Here are some quick thoughts on visiting my 15th MLB Ballpark (of those in existence):
