Opening Day

Well here in about 7 minutes the season begins.  Where are you at?  Me, unfortunately sitting on the couch watching.  I had planned on being at one of the stadiums working, but that did not work out yet.  But, I continue the search.  One day, somebody will let me in and then I will take over from there.

Looking forward to a good season, hopefully we will see some exciting pennant chases, maybe some broken records.  Who knows, maybe well see the Cubs win the World Series.  You never know.  That’s what is great about the game, you just never know what is going   to happen.  It’s the best time of the year.

Another big payday

http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=espn:10692549

Mike Trout America’s next golden boy. 6 years, almost 150$ million. Here we go America, like I said two days ago, once it starts (the ridiculous contracts), it’s going to be a minute before the prices slow down. Who’s next? Thankfully Kershaw had already signed, if not, whew, it would have been a lot more. But Trout deserved it. Last year, he was the best valued player. He earned 510,000$. That comes out to 712$ an at bat. America, are you ready for the your next golden boy? He is, lets just hope that he never pee’s dirty (PED’S). Good luck Golden Boy.

Resume, what do you think?

So this is why I started this blog, to get into the career field I wanted to retire in.  So, tell me what is wrong or right with my resume?  Thanks, I don’t mind criticism, I need to learn what is good on a resume, and what is not.  This is not an exact replica, but fairly close, minus the formatting————

So, this is really it

Sometimes you just come to the realization that, what  has been staring you in the face for a while is about to really happen. The bad thing is, its been there all along and you just didn’t realize  it until it was too late. And when the realization sits in, its like  BAM, it knocks you on your arse.  Whats next?  What do you do?  Do you lay there and take it like a chump?  Or do you get up and fight?  Is it worth the fight?  It depends, depends on how far gone you are already.  Sure, everybody will say: you must fight, you got to, you must try to go on.  But, lets keep it real, some just don’t have it in them to fight.  How are they going to change if things are at their worst? Do you just let the sleeping dog sleep?  It takes a miracle to make it happen.  Some want the miracle, some just want to move on and be forgotten.  Where do you stand in the pecking order?  Where do you fall when the shit hits the fan?  Do you get up or do you roll over?

Regardless, it’s not up to us, to mettle in someone else’s affairs.  We all have our own to deal with.  Can you say that, issues you have are less than the person issues next to you?  You may think you can, but Nah, it’s not true.  No problem is bigger or lesser than the problem you have right now.  What that problem is, who knows?   But how you decide to deal with it, is the more important thing here. Do you lay there like a chump, or do you pull yourself up, dust off, and grab it by the balls and say, “I got this?”

30 Million, Hmmmm

Is anybody worth 30 million a year, I don’t so. But evidently, the whole baseball world believes Miguel Cabrera is worth that. Just think 30 million a year for 8 years, get out of here, that’s stupid. Well we will just raise ticket prices to help foot the bill. Oh yeah that hot dug an hummer,went up to 18.00$ now. Now that Miguel has gotten it, many more will follow. When will the madness stop? They should make a salary cap of what you can play a ballplayer each year. Five million, that’s enough to get me and you over that hump, and let us live. While all the players salary rise, it’s the fans that have to pay the price of the “next biggest contract”.
