Seinfeld clips on YouTube gives me the good chuckles

Recently I have been watching random Seinfeld videos on YouTube. Just a little thing to get me laughing.

The show is so brilliant in so many ways. I can watch any episode anytime. It’s just so funny. I love it!

I’m just a jealous guy

OK. Maybe this song doesn’t exactly describe my feelings, but I do like Queen and this is a pretty awesome song.

A lot of stuff has been rolling around me over the past few months and it’s still a lot to take in. I’m still trying to find my direction in my career as well as still finding what I want to get out of life. Or at least right now, figure out if I am on the right path.

And the tough part is that I’m not sure if I am on that right path.

Happy Memorial Day

I never cared much for any holiday during the year, but this is one that I am starting to appreciate more. With the day to honor those who have served in the military, it’s a good day to acknowledge the efforts and sacrifices.

I still can’t stand war and I despise anything related to it. I still don’t believe that war is the answer for anything. But since people are using war to solve problems, much props to those who help make sure that we maintain our freedoms in this country.

It’s a happy day but still a sad day because it’s still tough to imagine all the people we’ve lost to war. But I’ll still relax, sit back, catch the A’s-Yanks on TV as they wear this ugliness.

Ugly.

How the Oakland Athletics selected me as their Social Media Fan of the Month

Click the image to see it in full size.

A few days into the 2011 season I was contacted by the A’s to be a part of their campaign to promote social media. Every month, they will feature a “fan of the month” in their team magazine.

They had been watching me on Twitter and wanted to do a piece on me. I did a phone interview and I was told that I would make it in the next issue. Finally, I got a chance to see my face in the magazine and for the rest of the world to see. That’s pretty cool.

Now this makes it two team magazines that I have been interviewed for. I’ve done the 49ers and now the A’s. Sharks and Warriors… you both are next!!!

The Burger Shack Opens Tonight (via A’s Ticket Services)

Looks like I will have to check this place out when I get there on Saturday.

The Burger Shack Opens Tonight The Burger Shack opens tonight at the Oakland Coliseum. The establishment is located on the first level concourse behind Section 132. A lunchtime sampling of the menu by ticket sales and services employees put nothing but smiles on people’s faces. Cheeseburgers, French Fries, and Texas Grilled Cheese sandwiches stuffed those smiling faces. The Burger Shack will be open at tonight’s game and throughout the season. Tell them Ticket Services sent yo … Read More

Sharks eliminated from playoffs but it was a fun season

It hurts to see the team you cheer for go down like this. I was worried about the Sharks when they were set to take on the Canucks. Out of all the teams that made the playoffs in the West, the Canucks were the only team that I felt had what it takes to beat the Sharks.

They did so with a lucky bounce. But that’s the game of hockey and I just wonder what could have been. The team will make their offseason changes and hopefully they’ll make the right moves to get the team to where it needs to be.

That’s why I love sports. It’s a roller coaster of emotions that I can’t get enough of.

Now my focus goes straight to baseball mode.

Crazy Milwaukee Brewers fans hoard loads of garden gnomes for eBay profit (and I wish I was part of it)

If I was younger and living in Milwaukee, I would have done the same thing.

Here’s a fun story I came across while reading up on random things about bobbleheads and sports action figures.

The Milwaukee Brewers held a promotion in which they would have about 1,400 of these Bernie the Brewer mascot garden gnomes places through places in Milwaukee. About 1,000 of them were within a lake area. The promoters said that at 7AM, fans may go to the lake, find one and pick one up. Some of the gnomes had tickets and vouchers attached to them too. Each household was allowed one gnome.

But due to poor thinking, the promotion went all wrong. People started to collect more than one and put them on eBay.
