Song of the Day – ‘The Boys of Summer’

  Haven’t officially acknowledged baseball season yet, so we’re going in that direction today. Caught every Royals game thanks to MLB.TV and I’m officially spoiled.  Only been a week but as others have said before me, it’s looking like a potential long season not that our bullpen are mere mortals again. Anyway, mid April, it’s […]

Song of the Day – ‘Hay’

  How long has it been since I’ve posted something of pure fun? This came through the playlist this week.  I can’t hear this song without thinking of the summer Inroads parties back home (Kansas City).  As a hip hop kid, this song always makes me think of ‘home’… Walking into the party, Greeks (which […]

‘A Ballerina’s Tale’

Song of the Day – ‘Wishful Regrets’

Song of the Day: ‘Start Me Up’

My hometown is obviously still in a ‘house money’ phase, but even the national media seems to be cautiously optimistic we have a reasonable chance to see the Chiefs win their first playoff game since Joe Montana and Marcus Allen were in the backfield. Yes.  It’s been that long. Haven’t been to Arrowhead in a […]


I had a few gentlemen’s bets of my own on the World Series that I won, so this was cool to see. Well done, Mister Mayor.  Til Next Year… NYC World Series Payoff!
