Drive Home

Still enjoying the ride. Almost back home. Some semblance of NYC.

2011 MAAC Champions

With a 5-1 victory tonight, we won the MAAC Tournament. NCAA Regionals are the next stop - where is the question that'll be answered Monday night on ESPN. The selection committee will determine our destination.

June 3-6 is the regional dates. Follow the Jaspers.

Thanks blog friends. Time to celebrate.

Rain Delay

Start of the game is delayed. A small rain cell is passing through. Eventually, we'll get it going. Let's tune it up!

Dual Blog Posting Special

Due to a time constraint, this post will be broadcast via both my blogs - WRT and DDP.

I just got out of the shower and am ready for the MAAC Banquet thing at KatManDu - a seedy looking nightclub that the conference insists on hosting this dinner at. It's a buffet and the food isn't half bad, so whatever. As long as they keep it moving and it doesn't take three hours, it's not all bad.

Anyway, when I was in the shower, I noticed something that I'm sure many of you have never even thought about - the placement of the soap tray inside the shower. Typically, they're located towards the lower part of the wall and in the middle of the tub, a terrible place unless you like you some slimy soap. Me, I like when the soap has a chance to dry itself off before the next use. So for this Trenton Marriott, I commend you. You've got a well-placed soap dish within the confines of your shower. There it is, nice and high and out of the way of constant water abuse.

Now since this is Nolan's first real road trip, I had to take a picture of him on the king bed - a bed which I am jealous of since all we have in our apartment is a double. He's been pretty good so far and I hope this continues, because our room is sandwiched between our game one starter and two of our stud outfielders. So here's to a decent night of sleep for all in the 420-424 block.

Lindsay and Nolan are trying to get a little shut eye now, and I can's say I blame them. The traffic they hit on the way down will TKO anyone. That's another thing, I hate traffic and especially traffic in New Jersey. Also, while I'm on the NJ bashing, I can't think of many other states where you're forbidden to make left turns (like Zoolander, you can't turn left). They make you go right and around a roundabout all for a freaking left turn. Hey, New Jersey - just put in traffic lights with left-turn arrows.

OK, time for me to shut it down and play some "Cut the Rope" and "Rat on a Skateboard" on this here iPad. Later on dudes and dudettes.

Here he is.  Close-ups of the little man just hanging out.  Pretty mind blowing stuff when you think about it.
On daddy's shoulder, way up high!

Tummy time, trying to get my triceps jacked!

Line Drawing

It's almost sad that the grass looks better as a line drawing than it does in real life.

And to think, people can draw shit like this. I guess that's why artists' work fetch so much money.

Optical Illusion

The stairway gets very narrow at the bottom. Some opposite effect on my phone. Pretty damn cool.

The sunset over the mounds of Earth just outside of Binghamton NY. Just under three hours left.

Sunset is always cool in the country.

Fence Foliage

Just some vintage fence foliage I saw while walking over a bridge. I just like editing photos.

Thanks for reading today!

What the...?

The guy who was eliminated from American Idol was singing with the house band. I was watching it on Leno, and saw this and had to rewind it to make sure I wasn't seeing things. I wasn't. What is "FUCKS" speakers? That's an odd name for a brand. Oh well, I'm glad I saw it.

Late night television is certainly not PG rated. And Leno is hilarious.
