Fun with Baseball Names

For those who enjoyed the list of fun names of players that were in the Pittsburgh Pirates minor league system that I put together a few seasons ago, you'll be interested in this... put together a bracket of the 64 best names in all of Minor League Baseball for people to vote on. There are some real doozies on this list.

Moniker Madness

Imagine how badass you'd feel if your name was Rock Shoulders.

I just signed up for the Tri-State Tough Mudder on October 20th.

12 miles (give or take) with 25 obstacle courses, including mud, fire, electroshock (!), wall and ramp scaling, rope climbing, tire lifting, dock leaping, etc.


so who else is in?  we need another JJ8 team event!  

And if you're daunted: I haven't run in a month, and I've been eating gelato at least twice a day.  The math hurts.  But we've got 90+ days, three full months and it's going to be AMAZING.

Semi-Annual Visit?

If anybody still reads this blog, I just wanted to get a feel for whether people are going to be around next weekend, July 14/15. That may be my one best chance to pay a visit to the city this summer. But if people are going to be off on trips of their own, or if there is a plan for a mass hiatus, that would be good to know.
