Dome Pondering Import - "John Sterling Has Epic Screw Up On Air"

Everything about the New York Yankees organization is first class. The on-field product. The stadium. The front office. Their television presentation. The brand. Everything...except their radio broadcast. Yeaaaaaaah, we all know it's pretty bad as John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman have provided years and years of questionable broadcasting. Despite being entertaining, with catchy home run calls, both, specifically Sterling, have been known to mess up calls and badly mislead their audience, which ironically, also adds to the entertainment. And when you're listening to the radio for play-by-play, it is vital for the announcer to paint a picture for the audience. 

The following import is from the WFAN's, The Boomer and Carton Show (Who have such an entertaining morning sports show), as they dissect another Sterling gaffe. They usually have a segment where they make fun of Sterling and Waldman's broadcast, but this mistake as they say, takes the cake. Please take a few minutes to listen to this clip as it is very, very entertaining!

Turning 39 - One Last Go-Around in My 30s

I turn 39 today, and everything I read in regards to such a "milestone" is that it's dealing with the anxiety of turning 40. The big 4-0!  Yet, I sit here punching the keys completely unaware of fears, trepidations, and emotions towards the future. Instead, I find myself immersed in the present - in exactly that, 39. I also find myself slightly looking back on the road to get here - my final year in my 30s.  I look back on my thoughts on turning 30 ( Praying on a Cool Thirty ) and, ironically, I very much vibe and can feel the essence of where I was at the time. At the time, turning thirty meant a whoooooooooooole sort of different expectations and responsibilities. I am in that same place - a center of gratitude for the journey. My 30s have been a ride.  For me, I became a father, and I lost my father. I lost one of my best friends, yet, I gained another in my son - and then a second one just recently. I finished coursework on my second Masters degree, and I also watch

Trump Conviction: Hard to Describe This Time in History

You just have to shake your head at the reality of the situation.  A former President of the United States was just convicted - on several counts - of a crime.  It's the kind of thing, even in a post-Trump Presidency, where even strange things seem normalized, going too far is desensitized, and you ultimately laugh hysterically at the uber strangeness to suppress the sadness, that even this - THIS! - is still attention-grabbing.  It's no secret if you follow this site - I'm no Trump supporter. I understand why voters elected him in 2016 and struggle to understand why so many stay with him through it all for a 2024 campaign.  We've reach a new level where American voters will outright neglect crimes, and vote to elect a convicted felon as President of the United States. It's quite hard to describe this time in history.  Yet, here we are.  Several other quick thoughts:  I still wonder whether Trump wins or loses, how does the Republican party move on after Trump? I do
