The Top 5
The calendar has turned to June and the Major League Baseball is in full swing. Suddenly, each game carries a little more urgency as we head into the "dog days of summer."
I apologize for the lack of posts recently, but life has consumed me. The soon-to-be Mrs and I bought a small farm and are in the process of prepping to move. "The Bullpen" is enjoying his "Summer of George". With our minds occupied on real life I thought I'd take a minute and list my top-five favorite P&G posts. Follow along if you wish ...
Coming in at No. 5 is my ground-breaking post on The Real Braun PED Story. It was hilarious how the first couple people got the point of the post and yet, others couldn't and never did. (Don't forget to cast your 25 all-star votes for 2011 NL MVP Ryan Braun!)
No. 4 is my twitterview with Lukas Nelson. It was one of the rare times this blog has strayed away from baseball. Lukas wasn't long on words in the twitterview, but it gave me a reason to shake his hand after a subsequent concert. That also gave us the opportunity to hang out on Willie Nelson's old tour bus, the "Honeysuckle Rose III". As a treat we took Lukas and the band some Wisconsin smoked cheddar and fresh cheese curds! That was an amazing experience.
Continuing the list at No. 3, we have The Bullpen's entry commemorating the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It was brilliant and better than pretty much everything I've ever done.
My second favorite post is the "Fan List". Not a lot of thought went into that one -- the "list" was made up mostly of new and random thoughts we came up with in about two minutes. There was never an intent to offend anyone, but the descriptions just sort of worked.
My favorite post is also the one for which I have received the most feedback from others: my "Ballpark on a Budget" post. I've had several people thank me for informing them of the various ways to save money. I'm no Clark Howard, but I'm always happy to help ya save a buck!
Anyway, thanks for reading, be patient, and we shall return!
