Drawing the Line

Well, it's been officially over a month since my last post.  What a joke.  1 word to explain why i haven't posted on my blog, and that word is WORK.

The month of October was crazy busy, and when I say crazy, I mean working every evening and every weekend.  Trust me though, this will never happen again.  I have to draw the line when it comes to working too much.  I realize there are busy times of the year in all jobs, but this was ridiculous.

I am over the hump now, and we will see what the future brings.

So the St. Louis Cardinals are the World Series Champs eh ?  Good for them, talk about being resilient throughout the series.  There was at least 3 different times they were down to their last strike from LOSING the world series.  Each time they got the clutch hits, and what do you know, they won championship, good for them !!!!

Probably the thing I will remember the most about this year's baseball playoffs is what the Texas Rangers did the very first game of the MLB playoffs.   Let's rewind a little bit...

There was a tragic story from a Rangers baseball game earlier on in the year, when firefighter Shannon Stone and his young son went to watch Texas play.  Shannon's son's favorite player is CF Josh Hamilton that play for the Rangers.

During the game, Josh Hamilton caught a fly ball and turned around and threw it into the stands for the fans, Shannon Stone tried to catch the ball, fell over the railing, fell 20 feet and died.  All this while his son witnessed it.  Here is the video.





Now what the Rangers did before game one of the MLB playoffs was that they got Shannon Stone's wife and son to come out to the mound, and Shannon's son threw out the first pitch.  The ball was caught by Josh Hamilton.  I don't know if I am turning into a pussy, or because i am a new father, but seeing this puts everything into perspective.  Urty and I have been to ball games with my pa, and I don't know what I would have done if I would have witnessed this.

Speaking of Urty and I, found another old pic of us.

Ryder's Joke of the Day


A guy is down on his luck. He takes his last $500 and goes to Las Vegas.
Overnight, he has a fantastic run of luck. He stumbles out of the casino and finds a pay phone. He calls his wife and says, "Honey, pack your bags.I just won over a million dollars in Vegas. "
His wife say, "That's wonderful. What should I pack for... Europe, the Caribbean? "
He says, "I don't care, just be gone when I get home. "
