Snow gotta go before that first throw


Just popped over to “The Maxx”  to check the brackets and there’s an interesting match-up going on right now.

Rays Renegade against Diatribe of a Law Student. I read both of their blogs and both are outstanding in their own way. Tough call, so in fairness I can’t plug one or the other.

But I wish both of you luck.

The Rockpile Rant is up next against Eat, Sleep, Baseball. I have no idea what to expect because I had no idea I’d actually make it this far. Seems Julia’s Rants, Red State Blue State and the # 1 blog (whatever it’s called) are all history leaving me the only top five blog still in contention.  

I don’t really understand this bracket, nor do I even plan to try. It’s all a crapshoot and I’m along for the interesting and controversial ride while pointing out the cool stuff 🙂

We’re getting ready for another potential “major” snowstorm to hit us the Denver area tonight. I’m ok with that because I’m off for the weekend and as far as I’m concerned Mother Nature needs to dump all she can because once Coors Field opens I’m not putting up with that snow bullsh*t anymore.

 Oh F*ck no!

No way, not ever, never, no. April 5th is officially the cutoff for new snow (That way the snow has time to melt before the home opener on the 10th).

There’s nothing quite like catching a baseball when your fingers are numb and then getting that cold finger sting from the impact of the baseball.

I suppose the runners could use snowshoes but how would you spot the baseball, wouldn’t it just blend in?

Here’s a picture in dire need of a caption. Let’s see what you got, go ahead shoot me your best shot. This ought to be good.

RPR Cheez it1.jpg                Thanks for making the Rockpile Rant a part of your daily web adventure. 

I’m D the Rockpile Ranter and believe me when I tell you the fun is just beginning. I’ll have the official rules for the sport of Hagg’n in my next entry…D

PS..Jay Cutler you can KMA you MF.

The winds of change and snow are blowing


I’m working on getting a camera to replace the one I left on the ski run yesterday. At this point I’m not to picky because it’s damn close to opening day. I’ll be there with glove in hand and a disposable camera in the other if I have to.

What a great day, snowing and blowing, almost two hours to get home from work and It’s only a fifteen minute drive. The best thing is there’s more snow on it’s way.

East coast get ready because you always get it worse than we do and this one’s been a monster. Oh and it’s that wet heavy snow that shovelers love.

pedal-snowplow.jpgI’d like to thank whoever schedules the plow truck drivers for really being on his game last night.

The state has saved a fortune this winter in snow removal because of the mild weather.

Usually every Feb/Mar we get our one “big snowstorm”.

This one had all the signs of being a “Big One” yet, no prep work was done.

The only plow I saw all day was the one blocking the road I needed to travel on to get back home.

I have never seen so many people out driving during a major snowstorm. It’s supposed to continue to snow all night and part of tomorrow. Stay home!

I bought my Toyota 4×4 at exactly the right time and it was pure pleasure to drive in this blizzard. I recommend one.

I’m totally having fun with this Max Madness thing going over at “The Maxx “. What they’ve done is taken the top blogs and laid them out in a bracket style format.

I love the secret vote part of this competition. I just watched the number one fan blog get bumped out by the # 13 blog called Diatribe of a Law Student (an excellent blog by the way and located on my sidebar).

Let me break down the “Real Deal” for you. Don’t thank me it’s what I do. I can give it to you straight because I’m not getting paid and because someone has to.

Comments are left on MLBlogs.com as a way of networking for some, letting the reader know your opinion of what he/she wrote, or for schmoozing.

Schmoozing is all part of the game. Everyone does a it a little, you have to. Some people more than others. You schmooze to get what you want, It’s a fact.

I knew this bracket would have some major upsets. Just because someone is number one fan blog doesn’t mean that they’re the best or most popular. 

None of us have any control over how much exposure our blogs gets here, but we do have control of how we vote. There’s some randomness to it, but some blogs just get more attention than others. It just beez that way and I’m fine with that.  

In the end the ulitmate proof is in the vote. I love a good shake up, and things need to be shook up a bit.

By the way, looks like I’m up next against Clemson Girl, probably first thing tomorrow morning east coast time. Good luck girl! 

You know me I love throwing ideas at you and my next entry will be one that is chock full of new ideas for MLBlogs.com. Onward and upward, gotta keep moving.

It’s Jiffy Pop time baby, Mark where you at brotha? It’s time for a latest leaders update…D
