random thoughts

just saw million dollar baby for the first time ever. yeah i know, 4 years late on that one. it was possibly one of the most depressing movies of all time, but also really amazing.

been doing a lot of driving lately and decided that i might try to take an epic road trip around the country at some point. this road trip also needs to involve as many major league ballparks as possible.

fail blog is still hilarious

decided to get a new car in 2009. stay tuned for more on that.

currently obsessed with a korean talent show called star king. if you had no idea what was going on you'd swear it was a kids show but it airs in prime time for adults! nutty.

mysteries debunked

growing up as a baseball obsessed kid i collected my fair share of baseball cards. one of the holy grail cards was the infamous billy ripken "fuck face" card which, as legend had it, was the result of a practical joke by one or several of his teammates.

well it looks like the mystery has finally been solved thanks to this sweet article from turns out he wrote "fuck face" on the bottom of the bat himself and didn't realize he was using the bat he used for the fleer photo shoot. to make matters even more hilarious he claims that fleer "enhanced" the words on the bottom of the bat so they could be read more clearly. one less cold case for the world to solve...
