A Look at Mets Interleague Opponents

September 14, 2011

Today the 2012 MLB schedules for all of the teams were released and with it always comes a lot excitement and criticism. Excitement to plan road trips (more on that in another post) and criticism for the interleague match-ups. Interleague play began with the 1997 season for reasons that can be read on Wikipedia. In […]


Brief Thoughts About Social Media

October 5, 2010

I remember when Nik first started using Twitter. It was sometime in 2007 when he had to text his tweet to a number for it to update. I thought he was crazy. Three years later it’s one of the biggest things out there, and one that I take advantage of. I joined in late 2008 […]


A Fond Farewell to the 2010 Mets Season

October 4, 2010

Saying this season was a disappointment is a big understatement. There were so many things that went wrong, that it will probably take a lot to get back to being a winning team. I’m not going to rant about who should stay or go, but clearly there need to be some big changes. I think […]


The "Field of Dreams" Movie Site

August 8, 2010

On our way home from a wedding in Waterloo, Iowa., Nik and I decided to make a stop in Dyersville to see the site where “Field of Dreams” was filmed. The field and house still stand and is open April through November. There is no cost to walk on the field or play a little […]



December 6, 2009

Living in Chicago, I constantly hear the Cubs vs. Sox debate. Factors of who you root for range from the neighborhood you live in or grew up in to those who root for the Cubs because it might be the cool thing to do. Well last night, I was at a bar with a group […]


Beer Me!

November 30, 2009

If you follow me or Nik on Twitter, you might have seen that we’ve begun to homebrew beer. We’ve had three successful batches and one batch that we aborted half way through. For a look back at our very first attempt, click here, here and here. Back to the present, our third batch of beer […]


That's a Wrap!

October 5, 2009

I wish I could be more creative with this title, but I got nothing. Kinda like the Mets when they got swept by the Nats! Anway, I’m not gonna dwell. The Mets ended the season at home on a winning note and that’s all we could have asked for…for the last two seasons! For me, […]


Twitter Poll: Worst Mets Moment of the Season?

June 29, 2009
Tags: ,

Prompted by an email amongst myself and a few of my co-workers who are Mets fans, I threw out the following twitter poll: Vote for the worst moment of the Mets progressively worthless season… A) Ryan Church misses 3rd base in what would have been go ahead run vs Dodgers, Mets would lose in bottom […]


Heilman traded to Cubs!

January 28, 2009

After being traded to Seattle a few months ago, everyone’s favorite target of boos, Aaron Heilman, has been traded to the Cubs. The deal makes a ton of sense, particularly because he went to Notre Dame and I believe he lives in Chicago in the off-season. I wish him luck. I’ll root for him at […]
