I'm a grad student trying to balance a love of baseball with nailing a 4.0 GPA and building a future. My life plan is based around "The Process" by GMDM. I also love baseball cards a lot.

Don't Want to Know Bo Any Mo'

In the card world, everyone assumes I love Bo Jackson because he was a Royal. This is my attempt to explain why that isn't true.

OT: Wichita, KS Area Hockey Fans - Check It

3

Hey guys, delete this if this post is not allowed, but I've mentioned previously that I work for the Wichita Thunder of the CHL here in Wichita, KS. In the past I believe I've come across a few Blues fans on here that live in or around Wichita. I've got two sets of two free tickets for our game next Saturday, October 22nd. It's going to be a huge night, so if you've never been to a game or haven't for a while, shoot me a message and I'll set you up. Yes it's minor league hockey, but we've got new local ownership and a damn good team. Oh, and we have former Blues' Forward Colin Hemingway on our team. 100 points if you remember who that is. Let me know!

Mike Sweeney to Retire

Not too surprising, but it's sad to see him hang up the cleats. I have a feeling we haven't seen the last of Mike Sweeney and his work in baseball though. Link to Royals.com Article

The MLB is hiring for a "dream job" position. I can't imagine there'd be anyone more qualified than some of the folks here on RR. Take a second and check it out.
