The Grand Finale

It's time to get down to brass taxes...

99.) GET A FULL LENGTH PLAY PRODUCED-COMPLETE
The first edition of POISON was produced in February of 2002.

100.) GET MARRIED
Step 1: Find a girlfriend. Or start writing letters to Russia to find a mail order bride.

101.) LIVE IN BOSTON, MA (1yr)
This is do to a life long love affair with the city of Boston. This goal will happen one day.

102.) VISIT A CASTLE IN EUROPE-COMPLETE
Done the same time I went to Ireland. There are more I would like to see so a return trip is necessary.

103.) SEE A GAME AT FENWAY PARK
For awhile, about 15 years ago, this looked like it might never happen. I imagined that this park would be demolished like other great fields of the past. Then, the Red Sox won the World Series. This probably bought me some needed years to do this and I hope to accomplish it soon.

104.) VISIT BASEBALL HALL OF FAME
I have not been to any of the professional sports Hall of Fame(s). I love history and feel I could probably spend a week here.

105.) VISIT BASKETBALL HALL OF FAME
See above.

106.) LEARN THE GUITAR
I have learned basics and even know a couple of songs. I have owned a guitar for a little over ten years. I really just need to sit down and play every day. As it is, I get on a kick for about a month and play every day. Then I set it down for a few months and then repeat the cycle. Consistency is what I need. Consistency.

107.) LEARN TO SNOWBOARD
I should make it a point to take care of this one before I'm too old. After all, there is a ski resort only 30 minutes from where I live.

108.) RUN A HALF MARATHON
With any luck, this goal will be completed in May.

109.) RUN A 10K RACE-COMPLETE
I have done this one twice. The race I ran both times was the YMCA Christmas Run.

110.) TRY A MEAL OF SUSHI
I am not a fan of fish/seafood. Never have been. My taste for it has improved over the years, but I'm still not a regular lover. One day, with a built up taste, I will do this goal. Just not soon.

111.) BUY A MEAL FOR A HOMELESS MAN
The closest I came to doing this is when I gave a plate full of pot luck leftovers to a homeless man outside of WINCO. I was on my way home on Christmas Eve and had a plate of leftovers from the work Potluck. I decided I didn't need that plate of food and politely handed it over.

That is where the current list stops. I have added stuff over the years and will continue to add as I get older. I hope everyone enjoyed the small glimpse into my life. I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

The Bromance of Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Matthew Lillard

In the late 1990's and early 2000's, there was no greater bromance than that between Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Matthew Lillard. The two of them appeared in no less than five movies together in a five year time span. These two were meant to be. Two young stars destined to take the world by storm as a team. Hanging out, meeting women, and enjoying the good life. And then, just like that, stardom was ripped away from them. Though they continued to work, they would never appear together again in a film.
What was it that pulled them apart? Did they just choose to go different directions? Was it Sarah Michelle Gellar that drove a wedge between these two? While Lillard eventually went on to star in an Oscar nominated film (The Descendants), Prinze, Jr. went on to write for the WWE and occasionally show up as a guest star on television shows. While both have tried, neither has recaptured that joy that once displayed on screen. Tonight, I want to dutifully remind the world of t…

American Sports Franchises Thirsty for a Title

A billy goat. A dash of bad luck. A sprinkle of a die hard fan. Leon Durham. Add those together and you have the beginnings of the recipe for the curse that has haunted the Chicago Cubs for over 70 years.
In winning the 2016 World Series, the Cubs collected their first World Series title since 1908. Their seven-game victory effectively ended the longest title drought among the four major professional sports leagues in the United States.


Now that the talk of a goat and Bartman can be put to rest, it is now the Cleveland Indians sitting on the longest drought in the Major League baseball. The Indians will be discussed here, as will the other longest droughts in the three other major American sports leagues.
MLB-Cleveland Indians
The Indians moved through the American League this postseason with ease. First, they swept the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS. Then, they took care of the Toronto Blue Jays in five games.
Yes, the Indians lost in the World Series after l…

"Pissing our pants yet? Boy, do I have a feeling we're getting close."- Negan, The Walking Dead

And people thought Ramsay Bolton was sadistic.


The much anticipated season seven premiere of The Walking Dead hit the airwaves last Sunday. Boy, was it a doozy.
I am not going to spend much time on what side of the liked/didn't like it/I'm never watching again spectrum I fall in. I will say that I was enraptured, on the edge of my seat for nearly the entire one hour, six minutes (including commercials) of the episode. This was an episode that filled me with a sense of existential dread for the characters inhabiting The Walking Dead world. It is a feeling that is still with me nearly two days later.
As a disclaimer, I am only through the first ten volumes of the graphic novels. I have yet to reach the Negan arc. I am also on the side of the court that didn't m…
