  • Today.........

    On this date in 1889 in London, the one and only Charlie Chaplin was born.....by the time of his death in the 1970's he had been the recipient of numerous awards and had been knighted by none other than the Queen of England.....it was also on this date in 1900 the first book of U.S. postage stamps was issued....it was on this date in 1940 the first no hit no run game on opening day was thrown by Bob Feller......on this date in 1947 the Zoomar arrived on the scene.....the Zoomar was a lens device that allowed the user to get close up and long distant camera shots from a stationary position.....(hence the word zoom).....on this date in 1968 baseball's longest night game was completed....it lasted 24 innings....the Houston Astros won by the way.....I hope you are having an outstanding Monday!

  • There is No Better Format

    ..There simply is no better musical format than rock.....PERIOD.....nothing speaks to me....gets inside of me and screams at me....takes ahold of me and forces me to find myself somewhere else completely if even for only a few minutes......there is absolutely NOTHING...and I absolutely mean nothing...that compares to hearing the right song at the right moment.....nothing even comes close......what makes rock so much better than other formats is it's ability to constantly re invent itself......it;'s stubborn and habitual bending and breaking of the rules......it's unrivaled knack for refusing to buckle in it's belief structure and it's take or leave it mentality.....it's irrisistable habit of not only defying norms and often pop culture, but creating it's own.....I often wonder if people like Elvis.....Bill Haley,....Chuck Berry....etc....knew that even way back when......to be honest with you I would have to say they absolutely did. Thanks for stopping by ...... Rick

  • Jackie Robinson

    ....Today was Jackie Robinson Day in Major League Baseball....if you happened to catch any baseball today you may have noticed all the players were wearing the number 42 in tribute of Jackie Robinson........Jackie Robinson was more than an outstanding athlete who practically changed the game of baseball with his base stealing/hitting/defensive skill set.....he not only broke a much needed to be broken barrior, he did so while taking the high road.....and that is why he will always be remembered as someone worthy of having a regular season day actually named after him.......he chose the high road by refusing to respond verbally or through the press when faced with so much ignrance fueled animosity.....no one would have blamed him in any way had he chosen to lash back.......instead he chose to respond with his play on the field....by stealing more bases than ANY player during his tenure and going to no less than 6 world series, winning one of them.....Rookie of the Year in 1947.....ML MVP in 1949....if you are a fan of the world's greatest game then I am quite sure you understand when I say this.....there will not be another Jackie Robinson....the respect I have for what he accomplished is immeasurable. thank you for stoppng by as always............... Rick

  • Opening Day....Opening Day....Opening Day!!!!!!!!

    .....we are so close to it I can already hear the sounds of the ballpark!!!!.....this weekend MLB will kick off another historic season of the greatest sport God ever gave us!!!!.....(Go Yankeees!!!!).... there is no sport that has it's tradition......none......Oh what I would not give to be at Yankee Stadium on opening day....or for that matter Wrigley.....or even Fenway......just to be at an MLB park this weekend would be heaven!!!!!...I will be journeying up to KC in just a couple weeks to catch some games at the K......and believe me I can not wait......I always go way early so I can catch batting practice.....I never will forget last year when I went to the K to see my Yankees play in mid August or so......of course I went in early and pressed my mug up against the screen to get as close as I could so I could soak it all in....and I never will forget what I got to see that night.....(and these are the types of things that make baseball great)....I was right behind the Yankee dugout and was watching batting practice when all of a sudden outta nowhere Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, and Mariano Rivera rolled up outta the dugout and were standing not even ten feet from me.....they stood there chatting......A Rod was taking some warm up swings.....Jeter and Rivera were standing in kind of a semi circle just shooting the breeze and every few seconds or so between swings A Rod would join in.....they stood there for 4 or 5 minutes or so....just like 3 guys on any softball/baseball field in America.....and I remember thinking to myself what an outstanding moment in time to witness....I mean 3 first ballot hall of famers just hanging out before the first pitch....I can remember recalling that one thing i would so look forward to when i got older would be telling my grand kids this story......I remember my father once telling me about going to see Mickey Mantle play when my dad was just a kid....and how in awe he was just watching Mantle warm up in the on deck circle......and I recall how when i was a kid i would make my dad tell me that story over and over........well I now know how he felt..........BASEBALL IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!! Rick

  • Happy to be there

    .....It sucks that they lost....but here's a good way to look at it....they went further than 62 other teams in the field and I don't care what anyone says......that's impressive.....one thing that I truly did like about what I saw last night........the fight in those guys......they simply refused to throw in the towell....they never quit....they showed heart above and beyond even when it was more and more apparent they were fighting a losing battle......and that is something I will never forget about the 2012 KU Basketball team......welcome to Tuesday! Rick
