I give you Exhibit A: The Yankees' Shelley Duncan.
Retaliation for a previous transgression by Tampa Bay aside, there's a right way to put a lick on a guy and there's a wrong way- this was the latter.
P.S. The original home plate collision that got the Yankees' panties in a twist to begin with was the right way. They just did not like being on the wrong end of it.
This is cool... literally. It looks like the New York Rangers will play an outdoor game at Yankee Stadium next season- the last year the stadium will be used. I guess the Pens/Sabres game outside this year was the radar "blip" the NHL thinks will get them into the spotlight every year. (Kind of like how every year the National Spelling Bee gets a day to shine too. Nice to see the NHL keeping pace.)
(Now just imagine all the green is white. )
P.S. What?! you didn't know the Yankees were tired of losing to the Red Sox, are closing their doors and leaving baseball?!!! Just kidding- the pinstripes have a new home in 2009.
Well, I have to say kudos to BananaRepublic.com for their current website survey prompt that allows you to choose 1 of 5 charities to donate monies to as your "Reward". Banana (and sister stores- Gap and Old Navy, apparently) is donating up to $4,000 to these charities based on survey participation.
I have to say, from my perspective, I take a survey (albeit seldom) because I want to, not because of the reward being offered. But this time, I genuinely took the survey only because I felt I could contribute to a good cause. The choices of charities are:
- Boys & Girls Clubs of America - Provides safe places for youth to learn, grow, and develop skills that will help them realize their full potential (www.bgca.org)
- Big Brothers Big Sisters of America - Is the country's largest youth mentoring organization (www.bbbs.org)
- CARE - Works to fight poverty around the world through projects that focus on women, their families, and their communities (www.care.org)
- Dress for Success - Promotes the economic independence and self-sufficiency of disadvantaged women worldwide (www.dressforsuccess.org)
- Soles4Souls - Collects and distributes new and gently-used footwear to people in need throughout the world (www.giveshoes.org)
And he's right on.

Here is what I know. I no longer have time to update different sections and thoughts and syphon through what I want and where. This was intended as a true weblog (read: journal) of things I find interesting and at some point it became an amalgamation of, well... junk.
These things are like closets... if you do not clean them out once in a while, pretty soon you run of room to put things and they invade your living space. This site began invading my space and I do not like it that way.
So, Spring cleaning time has arrived. Changes to follow.
So, if you do not know H&M by now, well, you should. It's that simple. H&M is an international retailer that truly rocks at the big box clothing+ style+value equation that I have not yet seen anyone else able to duplicate. Very simply, H&M knows clothes.
Check out their dressing room, heck, even upload your face to a mannequin and let your inner Tim Gunn take over. Make it work people.
