I wanna be like Mike!!

Well, I saw the ending of the career of the only figure, other than my dad, that I really idolized tonight. Gotta admit, I got a little teary. I saw him in person first his rookie season at a game in the Silverdome against the Pistons…he had one of his dunks that’s in every hi-lite […]

20,273 in stunned silence

The Shot… I get goosebumps every single time I see or hear that. One of the defining moments in MJ’s career. And Craig Ehlo’s too for that matter. 😉

Farewell to Michael

I’m going to post something I once wrote about MJ on here later, and maybe some other thoughts on Michael…but for now, read these words from Bill Walton. I’ve never been a huge Walton fan, and sometimes think he considers himself “holier than thou,” but this really does say part of what I feel today […]

Pontiac Commercials, Jimmy V, and feeling…

Sign up…play…win nothing.

BGSU Hoops

This awesome photo was from the Toledo Blade on Sunday. This is the reason I still continue to go to every game…year after year…for this, my 25th season of BG Basketball. People say I’m insane and ask me why… Moments like this one make it worth it. No question! Oh…and the kid on the shoulders […]

Happy Birthday MJ

Today is the 40th birthday of my biggest non-family hero, Michael Jordan!! Wish I had some of my photos scanned in to share…my shoes, my SLU Action Figure, the photo of me with MJ’s Vette at the old Chicago Stadium… Maybe I’ll do some scanning soon. Jordan: By the Numbers (thanks to 866 — […]

I can’t tell if this is cool or not…
