This post contains two discussions. A brief discussion of my plans to watch Ring of Honor tomorrow night leads it off.

Voice Post: Shopping, TV and Stuff

Just another voice post in which I discuss my trip to the grocery store, the start of spring training and what I’ve been watching on TV as of late.

Voice Post: Talkin’ Baseball and The Simpsons

This voice post was recorded as I was preparing to watch ‘Homer at the Bat’ which is one of my favorite episodes of ‘The Simpsons’. I talk about the episode, screw up an exchange between Burns and Smithers and then transition into talking about baseball in general.
I discuss why baseball losses involving my favorite team bother me more than losses in football, basketball or hockey.
The discussion then leads me back to a discussion of ‘The Principal and the Pauper’ which is one of my least favorite episodes of ‘The Simpsons’.

I conclude with a brief comment on the value I get out of recording these voice posts. Then I stammer my way through a Valentine’s Day comment before calling it a day.

My Sports Relationships

Yesterday, I expressed my desire on Facebook that everyone have fun regardless of whether or not they would be watching the Super Bowl. I then pointed out that I would not be watching the game and was asked why.
It was that question, in combination with reading a post on a blog that I follow that got me thinking about my relationship to sports. For better or worse, this post is an overview of my history with sports and how I consume them.

Voice Post: WWE ‘Royal Rumble 2016’ Reaction

This is the first of two voice posts I will be putting up today. This one deals entirely with the 2016 ‘Royal Rumble’ which I watched last night.

I haven’t looked online to see how other people are reacting to the show and so I don’t know if my scenario is being posed by anyone else but this is how I would have done things.

The other voice post that I will put up later is a companion to my previous post.

Voice Post: Royal Rumble, Chili, Heightened Senses and Blindness Frustrations

This audio post is longer than yesterday’s. I covered several topics, I talked briefly about the Royal Rumble and why I’m not going to be eating chili tonight. Then I answered a couple of questions about being blind. One on whether or not I have heightened senses and the other on the most frustrating aspect.

I hope that if you listen you find it interesting. If you need a nap after you’re done, I understand.

I also hope you check out my previous written post about dreams.

Trying a voice post

In my post from the other day, I mentioned hating my voice. Consider this post as a way for you all to decide if my not liking my voice is merited or not. My high school drama teacher said I had a beautiful voice but I’m pretty sure she was hard of hearing.

After I recorded this, I realized that this could be a way to add more content. I might put up a lengthy post each day about whatever is on my mind and follow it later with an audio post of just random things. It would be good practice for doing longer podcasts again down the road.

The only issue is that I have to edit the title and add any text I might want after the post has been published.

The 2016 Royal Rumble Game

We’re just a couple of days away from my favorite WWE show of the year, the Royal Rumble. Every year, I put together a Royal Rumble game among friends. It is just for fun, you get nothing for winning, it costs nothing to play but it can make the match more fun to watch. I even have a couple friends who don’t watch wrestling or know much about it but play anyway, mostly because I twist their arm.

So Much for Writing Daily

When I started this website I did so with the idea that I would write daily. I established that as the goal because I figured it would help to make me a better writer. How could I not improve when I was forced to write even when there was no obvious topic on which I felt I should write?

Action Go Figure

Today, I want to write about wrestling action figures. I can’t really explain my desire to write about wrestling figures but it works out because I can’t think of what I would write about otherwise.

I had a lot of toys when I was a kid. I had Ghostbusters toys (I loved the Ecto-one so much) and Ninja Turtles but the ones I had the most of were wrestling figures.

Sioux Falls Trip

Today was my road trip to Sioux Falls with a friend. It was a lot of fun and it was also quite productive. The whole thing came together on short notice, I would say we discussed it about 3 weeks ago and confirmed plans to go the week after that which is a lot less time than it usually takes to plan a trip. That’s probably because it was just the two of us and we were not beholdened to anyone else’s time schedule or when they could get off of work.

Would You Rather? #8: Super Bowl or World Series

Welcome back to Would You Rather the game where I am given two choices and must pick which of them is most appealing to me. Last week, we discussed which period of time we’d want to visit, the beginning of civilization or the end of it.

This week Either.io gave me a question I could sink my teeth into.
