O'lay... O'lay O'lay O'lay

Suddenly I cannot wait for 2010, when Philadelphia will have it's own MLS team. Thats right folks, Philly will now be a truly complete sports town, when it has a team playing the world's game. I'm pretty excited, as I am a avid soccer fan, and going to these games is quite an experience, or so I hear. So if anyone wants to get some tix for the opening game in 2010, just let me know, cause I plan on going. This team will be the only Philly based team I will root for, because of it's inception when I was a native of the area. Is that ok to do?

Into the Wild

Instead of watching this nationally televised embarrassment, I decided to go see a movie I have been itching to see since I first saw previews of it a long time ago. Into the Wild, a story about a 22 year old well to do college graduate who gives up everything he owns to strike out on his own. His journeys include hitching across America, meeting numerous people from different walks of life, and finally making it to where he wanted to go all along...Alaska! The movie to me helped to both tell a story, and teach a lesson that this young man Christopher McCandless learned too late. Hollywood.com says it better then I can; "Based on Jon Krakauer's nonfiction bestseller, Sean Penn's gorgeous, tragic Into the Wild is both an advertisement for wanderlust and a sobering cautionary tale." The cinematography was amazing, and the story of this young man boggles the mind, but at the same time makes you think about the world in which he was trying to hard to escape from. A movie I would highly reccommend to those who can appreciate a movie that really makes you think. The story reminds me of my best friends, two of which have been to Alaska, one who has been across the United States and is currently living meagerly in Wyoming. While they certainly aren't as extreme as the main character in this movie, they do have the ability to pack up their lives, and leave for these far away places at a moments notice. What my friends and the character in this movie have the ability to do, that I don't think I do, is live life and enjoy certain experiences without needing anyone to share them with. Human relationships with family and friends is very important to me, but to the character in this movie, he feels he needs none of this, until its too late. I think you can find a healthy medium between companionship, and solitude. Some want more then the other, but it is in finding that in-between that I feel can make us truly happy in life.

Logo Mania

Due to my recent purchase, and some really nice T-Shirts I have seen over the past couple weeks, I have begun to think about the coolest old school sports logos, and changing my wardrobe to wear such amazing styles and colors. A great section to ESPN.com that I discovered is called Uni Watch, and specifically what was great was it’s NBA Preview. It got me thinking of some great logos from past NBA teams. Take a look at some of these: The Old School Jazz, Nuggets, Warriors, Sonics, and Bucks are some great logos and color combos. How about the NFL? I am still partial to the old school Bills logo, but I also like the older Eagles green, and the Patriots as well. Baseball has some great color combos and logos. As you saw before I really like the Brewers logo, The classic Yankees logo will never go out of style. I also do like the Phillies old color combo and logo, and the Orioles oriole has also been a favorite of mine for a long time. I like the new Padre that has been displayed on the San Diego jerseys. I think baseball out of all the sports has the most elegant and classy logos, just because they haven’t messed with them so much over the years, they still look great. I also like the Athletics’ A, and Detroit’s D. Even the NHL has some cool vintage logos, like the Nordiques and Whalers. I think these color combos and logos are very fashionable and I really enjoy when teams put on the classy throwbacks. What are some of your favorites? Oh, and if your out and about and see a T or hat with one of these classic teams logos and colors…Holla at cha boi

Reasons To Not Visit Ryan

I like Philly, but there is so much I don't know about the great city. For instance, did you know we have the least attractive people in the country. I knew our murder rate was number 1 in the country, this still holds true. I was watching the news last night and what did I see? You see events like this on the news every day, this city has people killing each other off at such an alarming rate. However there are some good things to the city. It's a great sports city, Its got alot of history, and from my experience, every city has attractive people, you just have to find them. Hey look at me, I'm attractive, and I'm here. Don't worry too much about this bad publicity, just come and visit and we will stay in the safe areas, and get a cheese steak, and have a ball!

One Year!

Today (10/24/07), is the one year anniversary of my full time employment to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. It has been a good year, with a lot of great memories. I have got to do some amazing things through this foundation. I have met some amazing and inspirational people from all walks of life. I have learned that some people in life are not as fortunate as others, but what some people see as despair and unfair circumstances, others see as hope and opportunity to make changes. I think the story of Alex’s Scott has really made an impression on me. Someone who never got to live past the age of 8, did so much to make a change in her short life time, that its hard to bitch and complain about the little things in life. Families every day have to deal with the absolute nightmare of their child having cancer. This little girl brings hope to these families, and this little girl has given me the opportunity to open my eyes to many new and wonderful things. I am very appreciative for the opportunity to be a part of this foundation. Whatever I do after this, I will never forget this year of my life, and all the amazing experiences and insights that have come along with it. Take a look for yourself. Cheers!

My Brother Is Famous

Thanks to my wonderful sister-in-law, I got to read the article that put my brother on the map as a bona-fide superstar. My Brother is a star! Third paragraph down if you please, now maybe I can get in all the hot night spots in Boston, when I'm rolling with Jeff Egnaczyk.

Pittsburgh Taken Down a Notch

One of my most unliked teams in all of sports...The Pittsburgh Steelers have officially gone pop, like most of the other teams in the NFL. Everyone, let me please introduce you to Steely McBeam. No, I'm not joking, I had to find this out for myself when I heard it from a co-worker. Alot NFL and especially NBA teams have some really funky mascots. It really is sad to see a proud franschise like this go this route. I laugh at both the franchise and the Steelers fans. HAHA....
