The Avengers trailer has gotten me feeling excited beyond belief

This is the new trailer and oh boy am I excited. As some of you know, I am a huge huge huge Captain America fan. Also, I am a huge huge Samuel L. Jackson fan. And also, I like Scarlett Johansson but something about her in this series is really awesome.

So after watching this, I have come to the conclusion that this movie will be everything amazing and more. Yes please!

Since today doesn’t count, what should I do today?

Today is a Leap Day and we all know that anything that happens on February 29th doesn’t count. So what can I do today that I know won’t get on my permanent record?

Maybe I should do something super risky like bungee jumping or something. But normally I might want to reserve this day to do something really crazy and embarrassing like eating at Panda Express or something.

What can I do today that I know won’t count? At least I know today won’t lead to something crazy like another February holiday (video above).

Samuel:

Dallas Braden is at it again with his pranks.

Originally posted on Clubhouse Confidential:

This is why we love Dallas Braden.  Whether it’s Hideki Matsui or Manny Ramirez, he’s a One Man Welcoming Committee.  As you may recall, last year Mr. 209 came up with this nifty idea to entertain dozens of Japanese media who were staked out in the clubhouse to chronicle the arrival of national hero Matsui.  Weeks earlier, Braden had mail-ordered a life-sized blow-up Godzilla.  He was like a kid on Christmas morning when the box arrived at Phoenix Muni.  Along with the help of a few teammates, Braden decorated the synthetic creature much in the same fashion he would have decorated his Christmas Tree.  No. 55 A’s jersey.  Check.  Yellow wristbands.  Check.  Oakland cap.  Check.  Jockstrap.  Why, of course, check.  When Matsui finally arrived and turned the corner into the clubhouse, all he saw was about 40 new teammates staring at him to see what his reaction would…

Getting ready for baseball season by loving A’s fans, making fun of Giants fans

For the most part, this is true. Yeah, some of it’s dumb. But I am pretty much cool with all the truth into this one.

Manny Ramirez reports to Oakland Athletics camp and it’s kind of cool

He's back!!!

Sure this is 10 years too late, but having Manny Ramirez at camp is pretty cool. I am glad he’s trying to make up for his wrongdoings and that he’s trusting God on this one.

I at least hope that the signing can help bring some ticket sales to the team and in the process, put this team in the right direction. I hope that Manny still has something left and he at least makes the roster.

I am not too sure how this will turn out, but I am looking forward to that Manny bobblehead I am going to work on. I just don’t like that he is wearing #1 now. Makes it that much harder to paint.

After all these years, I finally have a copy of the Dr. Seuss book written after me

I finally have the book!

When I was a kid, I read this awesome book called “Green Eggs and Ham”. With my rhyming name and my love for Dr. Seuss, this book was perfect for me.

So growing up, references to this book and my name went hand in hand. And I loved it so much that I even decided to use it as the name for my blog.

But I never actually owned a copy of the book. The only Dr. Seuss books I own were “The Cat in the Hat” and “The Cat in the Hat Comes Back”. For me who loved “Green Eggs and Ham” so much, I never bought my own copy.

This week at Target, all Dr. Seuss books were available for $5 each. I knew that this was my chance to get it (and at a good price). There were two versions of the book. There was the original one and there was the 50th anniversary party edition.

The party edition had a glossier coat, but the pages inside were the same. So because of that, I got the original. Now I can finally say I own a copy of the book that this blog is named after. I’ll go read it right now.
