Adrian Beltre Announces Retirement

After careful consideration and many sleepless nights, I have made the decision to retire from what I’ve been doing my whole life, which is playing baseball, the game I love.

Tip of the hat to Adrian. Still a shame he was only in Boston for 1 year. ⚾️

Two “annoying guy talking about his fantasy football team” notes:

  1. Went into the MNF game with a 76 point lead. Opponent had Mahomes, Hill, and Hunt.

    I lost by 21.

  2. The winner in the Pick Em MNF total points tiebreaker was off by 37 points. Pretty sure that’s a record. 🏈

Pulled down the latest version of cTivo to grab some shows before hitting the road. Found out it recently added support for Skip Mode. Nice!

I could literally see Heurich House from my bed when I lived in Dupont. Had no idea it was the Brewmaster’s Castle until the last year or two.

Current work discussion: the potential awkwardness/hilarity of married employees installing Tinder to do UI research.

Seriously wondered if CBS would switch away from the Pats to show a more competitive game. That was ugly. #SaluteToService 🏈

I was totally voting FOR my candidates… but I totally took an extra moment to appreciate voting against Corey Stewart.


Focus Brands Inc. is making preliminary plans to go public in 2019 for a valuation of over $1 billion, and while you haven’t heard of them, you have definitely shoved too much of their food in your mouth at some desolate rest stop on the interstate. Focus is basically The Avengers but for stuff you eat on the Jersey Turnpike, composed of the likes of Auntie Anne’s, Cinnabon, Seattle’s Best Coffee, Moe’s Southwest Grill and Jamba Juice. You know, food you would never normally eat, because you’re a grown adult for god’s sake, but it’s 8:30 p.m. and you’re not going to make it to the good rest stops in Maryland for at least another hour, so it’s time to do something you’re going to regret by the time you hit Arlington. That is a billion dollar company in America.

Holy hell, it’s like Walt Hickey’s been in my car.

Hell of a game by Price and Sale getting loose in the pen. Push in all the chips one more time, AC. #RedSox ⚾️

One win away! #RedSox #DoDamage

(Confession time - after making it through all 18 innings last night, I passed out before first pitch and slept through he first 5 1/2 innings 😂)

C’mon, Interface Builder. It’s too early to start drinking.

(For the record, that was on dragging from the library. It reoriented itself when released.)
