Beautiful weather, baseball games, and a baby.

So today was one of the most beautiful days Kansas City has seen this year. It was also opening day for our hometown baseball team, the Royals. Although in years past, we haven’t been a great winning team, somehow, in perfect line with the even more perfect 70 degree sunshine cool breeze weather, and we managed to win. Maybe we’ll break .500 this year. Maybe.
And where was I? I was enjoying the wonderful 72-degree air-conditioned preset with no window, stuck in a grey cubical, working at my computer and making phone calls all day. I know you’re jealous. I also received some courteous obnoxious game updates via text message from all of my friends /drunks who smartly asked off from work to attend the game. Thanks guys. Well, I guess there is next year.

My boss at work also had his first child last week. Obviously people having babies isn’t anything new – however a close friend of theirs has a blog (heidi chronicles) in which she took the opportunity to ‘live-blog’ the entire delivery. Cool? I think so.
Following an updated live blog of my boss’s baby delivery was very refreshing. I follow live-blogs for sports and tech news – but a reading up on news regarding a close friend’s child birth, totally cool.

We all experience various events in life that seem to bring to the forefront a sense of reality or reminder of how enjoyable life can be. But, big events like weddings and having kids further illustrates how happiness tends to come in small potent doses (some more than others). The numbing serenity of these things in life makes it all worthwhile. Cheers to you Neal & Angela on the beautiful new baby!

Overheard on the streets of New York:

Teen #1: So this kid, Jason -- every time we go to a party, he takes a bunch of beers and hides them around whoever's house we're at.
Teen #2: You mean, where nobody could find them?
Teen #1: Yeah -- in a potted plant, an underwear drawer, the mailbox -- anywhere that will ensure him a beer later on.
Teen #2: Christ, he's like an alcoholic Easter Bunny.

Damn, this guy hit's an amazing 'trick spare' in bowling

This guy purposely knocks down only 9 pins and gets a slow moving spinning ball to hit the other. Damn Gina! This kid's got skills! ;)
