Bobblehead Cabinet

December 31, 2012

I’m not sure when I started collecting bobbleheads, but I imagine it was shortly after graduating college. I have so many of them that I had to pick and choose which ones would sit out on display at home. I have some shelves that they would sit on, but they’d get dusty. That’s when I […]

The Sports Room

February 11, 2012

Nik and I recently moved into a new condo and wasted no time making on of the bedrooms a sports room. The room was already painted red when we moved in and since most of our frames and shelves were a dark color, we decided to leave the paint color alone. (Note: click on any […]

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 […]

How the Blackhawks Beat the Rangers

December 10, 2009

The game was in overtime and Dustin Byfuglien (aka Big Buff) steps on the ice and more or less gets on a breakaway: Takes a shot: And it goes in and King Henrik is beat! It really was a great game. The Hawks got off 35 or so shots and scored their only regulation goal […]

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, […]

Canucks 3, Blackhawks 1

May 5, 2009

Tuesday night Nik and I continued our Blackhawk season at the United Center for game 3 of the Blackhawks/Canucks Western Conference Semi-Final game. We got there to see some of the warm-ups and use the new camera again. The pictures (down below and here) are far and away better than any we have taken with […]

My Field Trip to Wrigley

December 21, 2008

It’s not really much of a field trip since it’s in my neighborhood, but regardless, I ventured to Wrigley on Thursday afternoon to check out the Winter Classic Prep. Here a few pictures I took, but since then there has been a lot more progress made. Again, I cannot wait for this game. I just […]

Back to Baseball

June 4, 2008

Well, the Penguins lost in game 6 to the Red Wings. They put up a good fight. Detroit got lucky with two goals that just got past Fleury. It’s too bad the Penguins can really only put the pressure on when they have a man advantage. Now they have to take a quick break, re-sign […]

It's a Series Now, Kids.

June 2, 2008

While the Mets are figuring out if they are for real or not, it’s still hockey time here at ChicagoMetsFan.com… The Penguins finally won in Detroit (4-3, 3 OT), forcing a game six back in Pittsburgh. Who is the man: Marc-Andre Fleury and his 55 saves or Maxime Talbot and his game tying goal with […]

I'm Going to a Stanley Cup Game!

May 21, 2008

Seven years after getting my picture taken with The Cup (see below), I’m going to a Stanley Cup game, actually two and depending on how things go, quite possibly a third game. Sure it’s not the Rangers or the Blackhawks, but as Nik has adopted the Mets, I have adopted the Penguins. I’m excited to […]
