Baseball Blogging Festival Gord's Gold

To God or Not to God

Sadly, it looks like my blogging my mainly occur on the weekends for the now. Getting up before 6AM every day takes a lot out of me. Perhaps my body will adjust but I will not assume it will. The Mets are playing on the West Coast, so I didn’t get to sleep until after […]

High School Confidential

I had today all planned. I was going to blog, watch the Met game, then go shopping. Then I got a message from Dan, no not that Dan, the other Dan, asking if I wanted to go to the Met game with him. DeGrom was pitching which made the answer yes. Jake in person is […]

My Dinner with Barry

When you do something for almost every day for years and miss some days it’s hard to get back in the habit. That’s why I haven’t been writing. Most days I have simply been too busy. I leave for school every day around 6:40 AM. I get home around 4 PM. I then went out […]

Grant a Wish

I have to get back into a writing routine. Blogging about school is bringing up ancient childhood reflex reactions. Mother: How was school?Child: OK Father: What happened at school today? Child: Nothing What are you idiot stories? On Thursday I got the key to my classroom. On Friday I forgot it. We keep it locked […]

Back to School Special

Today was my first day of school. How’s that for not burying the lede? School is starting slowly. Today was orientation. That meant I didn’t have much to do, I just learned my way around and met my colleagues, especially my co-teacher. This is a new experience for me. For now, at least I’m not […]

No, I’m not dead, kidnapped, hospitalized, or abducted by aliens, I just haven’t blogged in days and days. I apologize. I had good reason for not blogging at the start. On Friday I was a daredevil. On the way home from my walk I bought corn on the cob from a pop up stand on […]

The deGromitable Polar Bear

I’ll start with the easy stuff. I went to last night’s Mets game against Colorado. I had a choice of games and chose this one because the greatest pitcher on the planet, Jacob deGrom was pitching. If I could I’d see every deGrom start. Each one can be a gem. Jake only retired the first […]

Fantasy Politics The Sandman

Venn I Am in Charge

If I’m going to procrastinate I might as well, do it writing. Not going out much is tough on my writing muscles. Maybe I should entrap the muse Calliope and force her to give me inspiration. That’s a Sandman reference but it’s deeper as Gaiman was referencing me. Madoc is the character that holds Calliope […]

Madoc and Me

I’m once again trying to write while watching the Mets. This will happen more often as I start my new job. This is a tough Met game. They fell behind 4-0, tied it up, now just allowed a three-run-homer to fall behind 7-4, It’s only the fourth inning. Fasten your seatbelts, this is going to […]
