  • Turning back time

    ...Have you ever wondered what you would say to yourself if you could go back in time....say ten years or so?......what if you could go back in time for one day and tell yourself anything....let's say you went back to ten years ago....while retaining all the info/knowledge you currently have today....and you could talk to ... you......what kind of advice would you give yourself?....obviously it will differentiate depending on each individual....i mean we all have our own blueprints so to speak...when I think about it I honestly don't know for sure what I would tell myself....I can think of some things in general I might say....but not specific things.......I think I would tell myself to perhaps take more time for the little things that in all actuality are the HUGE things that will be cherished as life goes on....things like calling an old friend I haven't talked to in way too long.....taking a day off just to...well....take a day off and maybe jump in my car and drive to somewhere i have never been....just to do it.....perhaps introduce myself to the neighbor i have seen time and time again and have yet to say hi to......spend the day at the zoo......ask a friend what their favorite book is....and then read it.......go visit my uncle who I NEVER see despite the fact he only lives a couple hours away....now that I think about it these definitely are specific things lol....I will be out and about this weekend and I definitely hope to see you out and about as well! Rick

  • favorite games to play

  • Baseball season ends,,,,,Football takes the wheel.

    ....Congratulaions to the San Fransisco Giants!....not only did they win the World Series and therefore are now world champions, they did so via a four game sweep of a Detroit Tigers lineup that is chalk full of good hitters.....that is an impressive accomplishment if I do say so myself!....I watched my fill of NFL action over the weekend as well....Dallas just cant catch a break....Kansas City is already looking forward to next year.....Peyton continues to roll in Denver....The Bears are proving to be an NFC powerhouse this year.....The suprise this year so far in the NFL?....would have to say either Minnesota....or Indianapolis......I would have to say both so far have exceeded expectations.....but then again the season is only half over so we will see .....thank you for stopping by as always!

    ...IT was a rainy downpour in San Fran last night by the time the 9th inning rolled around.....but that definietely did not stop the Giants from celebrating as they won game 7 on the NLCS against the St Louis Cardinals!!.....I have a feeling this WS is going to be off da hook!!!.....San Fran is heating up at just the right time and Detroit features a line up loaded with lumber not to mention the best pitcher in Baseball in Justin Verlander......I hope it goes 7!....This Saturday Saving Abel at the Thunderbird Bowl and that is going to be outstanding!.....get your tickets by listening to T95 for where and when we will be distributing them....they are free, but you do have to have one! thanks for stopping by and I do hope to see you out and about soon!

  • Debate number 2 tonight!

  • The Captain will be back

    ...I was definitely saddened to see Derek Jeter get injured over the weekend....and I was saddened not merely because I am a Yankees fan.....i was saddened because of what it is that he stands for and what he has accomplished.....Baseball, reguardless of it's ups and downs, is the one consistent thing we can always count on....it's tradition and rich history so appealing to even the most nonchalant sports fan...when you talk baseball with people you will often find those who are like me,,,,,die hard true fanatics for america's past time.....people who LIVE to sit in the stands at the ballpark on a summer afernoon.....you will also often find people who are not nearly as big of fans of the sport, yet still manage to somewhat keep up with it....and you will find those who simply are not fans of it....and have no desire to be...due to numerous things ranging from bloated salaries to players using phds to simply just not liking baseball,,,,finding it unappealing...(it happens...as difficult as that is for me to understand it defiinitely happens lol),,,,,,,What makes Derek Jeter so unique isn't what he has accomplished on the field....I mean don't get me wrong it's hard to argue with his numbers....but instead it is what he represents in an era of disillusionment. and "me me me" athletes.........he leads by example and rarely if ever will you ever hear him complain or play the blame game...that simply is not his style....he is often referred to as what is "right" about baseball and deservingly so....I have seen him play half a dozen times in person if not more...other Yankee players respect him.....I know so because I have seen it first hand....they respect him because through his leadership he has earned that resect....if you ever get a chance to see him play in person just take a minute or two and watch him when he is on the field...posted at short stop...do so and you will notice how keenly aware he is of EVERYTHING going on on that field....he knows oposing hitters often better than they know themselves.....he knows the strengths and weaknesses of every player that makes it to base....he knows how likely they are to steal....to hit and run.....or pull one down the line.....again I have seen it first hand....he is one of the last true ball players....and that is why I was saddened to see him get injured and have to leave the game he loves....even though I know he will be back next year....it still smarts. thank you for stopping by! Rick

  • ANOTHER GREAT FINISH.....WOW!!!!

    .....Ok....just to be fair.....I can not let today go by without saying once again.....WHAT A GREAT FINISH LAST NIGHT IN NY!!!!.....I realize my Yankees lost....but it was still an outstanding game that went into extras....and it would be unfair of me to only mention these types of things when the Yankees win.....so congrats to Baltimore for a huge win last night.....comming down to game 5...and as a baseball fan I couldnt ask for anything more!!!!....I can not believe it is already Friday....this week just blasted by!!....I will be at Pleasures tomorrow night so please feel free to stop by.....also will be out tomorrow morning signing people up for a chance to hang with Aerosmith!!!! I do hope to see you soon........Rick

  • WHAT A FINISH LAST NIGHT IN NY!!

    .....I had no idea it would go to extras.....and WOW what a finish!!!! Granted I am biased being a Yankees fan and all.....but any baseball fan would have to admit that finish last night in NY was storybook to say the least....that is what i LOVE about baseball.....I mean think about it.....yesterday afternoon only die hard Yankee fans could tell you who Raul Ibanez was.....late last night he became a household name instantly when he hit not one....but two dingers in back to back at bats and single handedly lifted the Yankees over the Orioles in extra innings.....it was magical...and I for one will NEVER forget it....it's moments like that which define baseball and make it America's past time.....I will be out and about this weekend including my Saturday night stop at Pleasrues so I do hope to see you out and about as well!!
