Pictures of Pitchers 1 (or pichers of pichers)

If you visit baseball web sites a lot (like me) then you're used to seeing pictures of grown men making silly faces while wearing baseball hats. For some unknown reason, the powers that be like to display pictures of baseball players when they are contorting their faces. When you throw a hard ball at speeds between 90-100 mph, you're bound to look a little goofy. I thought I'd share an installment today. Enjoy.

My favorite is the one in the middle. It looks like he's doing his squirrel impersonation. Nicely done.

What happens on the "STURDY STATION2"?

Perhaps Rubbermaid should have thought twice before naming their infant changing station "Sturdy Station2." I snapped a picture of this one at the QDoba on 96th Street in Indianapolis. I don't usually condone vandalism, regardless of how minor it may be, but I might have done this, too.

Simply removing the "S" and the "Y" on "STURDY" provides an even more appropriate name for a changing station. If you've ever had your little ones in a public place and relied on one of these, you know just what I mean.

From the FAIL! File

While planning out a future trip to a Reds baseball game and Ikea using Google Maps, I noticed something strange about the Public Library of Cincinnati...'s in Kentucky!

There's something else silly about it, but I'm still trying to figure it out.

Who's Guilty of Using "Spicy Photos?"

Another gem from today's Indianapolis Star. It seems like the newspaper might be guilty as well...

Anyone else find this "coincidence" of the airport body scanners (i.e. the ones that let security workers see your ENTIRE body) headline paired with the cheerleaders picture to be odd?

Removed from Email List

I get a TON of emails at work, so I actually take the time to unsubscribe from email lists that I don't wish to be a part of--usually I never signed up for them in the first place, but that's another story. Anyway, I unsubscribed from one such list today and got the following result...

Irony, anyone?

Something Unexpected Happened

Usually I reserve this blog for important updates on the random silliness that I see in the world around me. However, today I wish to reflect on something a little more important and personal. Enjoy (or, stop reading--whatever works for you).

You may have figured out that I have three children. Just yesterday I was sitting in the living room looking out at our modest little backyard that sits in front of a giant cornfield (yes, I live in Indiana). There were my two "little" girls, ages 11 and 13, jumping and playing on the trampoline. You could tell by the looks on their faces that not only were they having fun...they love each other and enjoy one another's company. Yet, these two are SO different. Bird (13) is sporty and spunky with tomboy tendencies. She wants to be a fashion designer. Snip (11 1/2) is the girly-girl ballerina who wants to nurture everyone and start being a mother today. It seems like just a year ago they were getting on each others nerves, picking at each other and not wanting to do things together. It honestly brings tears to my eyes to see them together. God has blessed me with two lovely daughters and the blessing seems doubled when I see them together.

America: The Story of P. Diddy

Last night the wife and I were watching a very interesting series on The History Channel called, America: The Story of Us. In a nut shell they would follow a time line through the major events of American History and then focus on specific events and people. One minute we'd be watching a re-enactment of the expansion of the Midwest or the Erie Canal (etc.) and the next we'd hear from real-life experts including history professors, researchers, scientists and Sean "P. Diddy" Combs... That's right. I'd get to hear what Sean "P. Diddy Combs" has to say about the subject. While we're at it, throw in Sheryl Crow and a host of other celebrities.
