Chicken Scratch David Freese or "Dil Fssssn"

David Freese has a legible signature for the most part. The "D" and "F" are clear and large and recognizable. However it almost looks like his first name is "Dil". I can see those conversations and boy that has a nice ring to it: Hey Dil, nice game Dil, what a home run Dil, way to steal Dil, or What the Dil-Li-O kind of catch was that! As for the second part of his name it looks like, "Fssssn". Heck of a name for ya.....who's pitching- Dil Fssssn! However despite these little things his name is very presentable and can be made out for the most part. David receives 3 sharpies for his efforts.

To bid on this refractor or any more of my cards here's the link. David Freese refractor

Ravishing Relics

This is one of the cards that I am giving away to one of you....the readers.....the fellow hobby mates....the ones who dare travel the paths not knowing what's ahead while slipping on a red star trek designed shirt.

Notice the stitching holes on the piece. I wonder where this section came from.

When will it ever end?

Wow.... things have been a little crazy around these parts as of lately. I have barely had time to wipe my butt before my kids are pushing me out of the bathroom because they need to get ready to go somewhere. Between Umpiring ball games, being a Dad, being a fiance, being a co worker, being a counselor, being a Dad, shuttling kids somewhere, running kids somewhere, attending my sons games, attending my daughters games, working a heavy load, and then somehow manage to not fall asleep on the lovely lady whom I share my bed with so we can have a little "us" time to talk and "things". Damn.....I forgot sleep in this whole equation. This blog has been lacking due to all the other parts of my life. Work will be settling down soon so I will be able to resume some normal posts again soon.

Much thanks to all of you for pushing me over 6,ooo views. This Friday (May 21) will be "Enough Already"s first giveaway! Details will be posted tomorrow night so get your thinking caps on backwards, slap a little pine tar on the bat and knob, get your pitching balls dirty and broken in while I go and slip into something comfortable while working on this here strike zone blog.

Chicken Scratch

I had a rather small amount of luck when I opened 3 boxes of 09 Topps Allen & Ginter last year when I pulled this autograph out of the second pack of the first box I opened. Needless to say the rest of the box fizzled out with overproduced jersey cards of Wang and Beltran. The other two boxes are not even worth the mention. WAY TOO MANY JERSEY CARDS!!!

Mike's signature reflects what he does sport-wise. You see, Mike jumps hills and things in his sport with his dirt bike. I guess that's why his signature looks like a set of mountains in a certain kind of way. Perhaps that will be his next stunt to try....jumping mountains! However his signature is one stunt that has FAILED. For his efforts he gets one sharpie.

For the idiot that keeps leaving "junk comments" to be posted

FOR the person who keeps leaving me comments to be posted that are actually web site listings......Screw OFF!

Oh where to begin......where to begin

Been a few days since I've posted anything on here. Between my son's ball games, my daughter's ballgames, my screwy work schedule, lack of sleep, lots of work, my GMC Envoy breaking down, lack of sleep, reports reports reports, clients going crazy, lack off sleep, son wanting to practice pitching techniques, daughter wanting better batting skills, lack of sleep, 6 hrs worth of grass cutting that has to be done, parents that have to be tendered too, and did I mention a lack of sleep. I'm gonna go crazy pretty soon and end up like this.....
Of course if I turn into him then I won't have to work anymore.....yeah!
It's been a little crazy lately though in the sports world as well. We have 17 yr olds getting tasered on the ball fields. We have an NFL Hall of Famer (Lawrence Taylor) being accused of rape. We have JaMarcus Russell officially rebirthed as RYAN LEAF and is now officially the biggest draft bust of all time. We've had a famous ball park announcer finally make it home (Ernie Harwell January 25, 1918 – May 4, 2010) to call the Big Game. Milton Bradley has asked his team for help with some personal issues (SHOCKING). HOF Phillies Pitcher Robin Roberts passed away today. THE PITTSBURGH PIRATES SWEPT THE CUBS IN A 3 GAME SERIES------THIS IS REALLY CRAZY!! Alex Gordan has departed the majors. Ben Roethlisberger plans to sue his concussions for his off-field behavioral problems. PACMAN JONES is coming to the BENGALS! Vince Carter is still making noise in Orlando. TOPPS is returning to Football. UPPER DECK is making a pretty bold statement with the NCAA college exclusive license because Press Pass and Sage will just end up having pictures of guys heads on their cards. And finally.... those pesky Pittsburgh Penguins are still in the NHL playoffs.
So if ya want crazy.....welcome to my's a peak inside what I like to do in my spare time. I will never be good as Charlie Benante (MY IDOL) or Mike Portnoy but these are some wild and crazy drummers:
