My wild life

'ere now. Give us a kiss.

And people ask why I hate snakes

I'd be a lot more frequent with these updates, but I'm just not that interesting a person. It takes me two weeks to have any sort of a life to write one blog entry.

I went to a bar crawl last weekend. I'd like to share some stories, because apparently, there are some good ones, but I don't remember much of the day. My friends just start laughing their asses off when I bring the subject up.

Dodgeball took a serious downturn. We've been very short handed (vacations, work stuff etc Life happens) and we don't get a very good sense for each other when half our team are stand ins from other teams. Meh, it happens. I'm still really enjoying myself and having a good time.

We lost two out of three games two weeks ago and got swept out the building last week. Its really bad when you get beat up on by the team made up of comic book geeks. And the shot to my groin didn't improve things any.

I saw Batman Begins. Twice. Friggin awesome. They really nailed Bruce Wayne and Gotham City in the this one. Best movie of the summer. I can't wait for the sequal, which was set up so nicely. Gary Oldman and Liam Neeson were brilliant.

Been playing poker more. I've gotten better and etermining odds and slow playing. My bluffing still needs work, but it'll come along. I found a site calledGotham City Poker. they have deals and tips for online poker as well as a forum for discussing card rooms and clubs. Its still new a pretty small, but hopefully, it'll get off the ground.

I'm thrilled with the Mets taking 2 out of 3 from the Yankees. Would have been better if it were a sweep (anybody got a bullpen we can borrow?), but I'll take what I can get right now. Throw in 2 out of 3 in Philidelphia, and I'm almost a happy camper. We need more consistency and a stronger 'pen.

Thats it for now. I'll have more to say some other time in the future.

Where have I been?

Thats a good question. I've been real lazy lately.

Not a lot to talk about.

Joined a dodgeball league. Its a lot of fun. I get a little excersise, talk to people I'd otherwise never meet, and get cheap beer afterwards.

And isn't cheap beer what recreational sports is all about?

That and being undefeated, which my team is so far.

I'll bring a camera next week and do an actual write up.

I haven't given a crap about pro wrestling in years. It just wasn't fun to watch anymore. I don't know if the performances got worse or I just got too old or what, but I just didn't enjoy it after a while.

My interest was finally killed off about the time that WWF (or WWE whatever its called)bought the WCW. I didn't like WCW, but it gave Vince McMahon a reason to keep pushing the envelope. He paid attention to the likes of ECW and tried to nuture them as his minor league (whether they liked it or not).

That said, I'd really like to see One Night Stand. ECW in Hammerstein Ballroom is classic. Say what you will about the quality of the wrestling itself, you can't deny they put it all out to give the audience a great show.
