Top Five Tuesday Mercy!

Image
So the other day my brother stopped by and I had on the MLB Channel talking about the Hall Of Fame ballot. It got us talking about a few of our favorite players and how we would go to the ceremony if they were voted in. I have been thinking about my favorite White Sox players of all time. A few years ago this would have been pretty easy but right now not so much.

Number Five




For so many reason's Chet Lemon will always be on the top of the list. He was the first All-Star I remember for the White Sox he was also the first Home Run I saw in person when I was very young. In fact, it was a doubleheader against the Kanas City Royal's my dad and I were on a bus trip with the rotary club. Then there was this one time I made a one-handed catch in a little league and the coach yelled from the dugout "we do not make Chet Lemon catches!" Made me laugh but I get it use two hands!








Number Four






Any 11-year old growing up in the '80s as a Sox fan you know you had to be a Carlton…

Gratitude Week 2 My Spouse

Week 2 My Spouse

My wife of almost 20 years is my rock, my best friend and the one person on this earth that really gets me.

She has given me two of the most precious and adorable girls a family could ask for.

I'm sure if you ask her what I could change about myself it would be more patient.

A little history

I meet Erinn at a bar the one thing I never thought would happen but this was 1995 and we did not have Tinder or Single Farmers dot com. The bar we were at was the gay bar for the night. She was at a table with two guys that I knew so, of course, I felt my chances were pretty good that she would at least talk to me. We talked about a mood watch that she was wearing. And life became just a little bit clearer. I remember what she was wearing a plaid skirt with a black sweater she drank bud lite and that was rough I was a miller man. We went out for breakfast that night and exchanged phone numbers. You know that stupid guy code that you have to wait three days or you look desper…

MTV's Remote Control NES style

Image
Do you remember way back in 1990 in the heyday of the NES and the shift in programming over at MTV well did you know you could play the only game show that started in a basement right on your NES! Just answer the absurd questions about Rock 'n' Roll and Junk Trivia and win lots of points. Senseless? You bet! Fun? Always! You'll be the envy of your friends, and best of all, you don't have to be smart to win!

Featuring Hundreds of challenging questions in absurd, thematic, tasteless and humorous categories. Crazy interruptions such as "Off the Air," "Home Shopping Zone," and "Ranger Bob," just like the real show. The fast and furious End Game Round that can change losers into winners. Single or group gameplay options.




So with all the retro gaming making a comeback, I ask the gods of Nintendo to consider remaking a classic game show. Man the hours I put into this game and the hours my wife (then girlfriend) sat and played laughing our butt&#…

Don't miss a bite of this tasty horror film!

Microwave Massacre

Director:  Wayne Berwick

Writers:  Thomas Singer  Craig Muckler

Stars: Jackie Vernon Loren Schein Al Troupe


Construction worker Donald is having a hard time getting anything good to eat since his wife has decided to only cook gourmet foods. That and her constant harping cause him to snap, and he whacks her. Somewhere in the confusion he comes up with a new use for the microwave oven and begins to eat much better. Soon he's experimenting with different recipes. And different meats.

With so many movies getting the tagline worst movie ever made this film lands on so many of those lists. And like most of the movie's I ask is it really the worst movie ever made? Wayne Berwick may not have made an Oscar winner with Microwave Massacre but what he did make is a black comedy worthy of a watch. Crazy fact about the director he went on to write for Father Dowling Mysteries and Diganous Murder and eve…

Brad will also experience once again what it's like to be a stepdad.


So what do you get out of a writer that has written such bad flicks such as Dumb and Dumber To, Horrible Bosses 2, and Sex Drive and this pile of... well crap! That's what you get an overhyped pile of Will Ferrell being Will Ferrell crap!

Why do so many people think Will Ferrell is funny? I hear guys quoting Anchorman and Talladega Nights all the time like is a sacre…

Stars:  Tina Fey Paul Rudd,  Nat Wolff Lily Tomlin


A Princeton admissions officer who is up for a major promotion takes a professional risk after she meets a college-bound alternative school kid who just might be the son she gave up years ago in a secret adoption.

American Pie director Paul Weitz takes on college and brings along Tina Fey with Paul Rudd. Will Admission get admited or will it be denied? 

The movie takes a very interesting look into the life of a boring Administration officer at a big ivy league college. As we travel through Portia (Fey) life we really see how boring her life is. Then we meet John (Rudd) who seems to be a dream/drifter that does not know what he wants in life. Once they are air quotes "Together" the chemistry between the two get boring as well. Sadly the movie never reall…
