And I Can't Stop Having These Visions

A look inside the madness of my mind--sports, politics or daily life--with humor and pop culture and music references embedded.

Startin' Up Again

So the blog is coming back again, this time with a slightly different spin. There won't one theme to it like previously when it was all humor; it will now be a stream of consciousness... whatever comes to my mind. (And yes, I realize I've said this before).

Right now, I have three main topics that will probably be covered. Sports (with an emphasis on the Cavs), Contemporary Events/Ramblings/Rants, and Humor. While some people will clearly be disinterested in some of them, they can simply skip that entry.

At some point if I ever find the time/inclination to, it'll probably be moved off of Blogger (granted, it's already on my own website). That way if you to just deal with certain topics you can just go to something like I'm sure its possible somehow, simply a matter of if I care enough to figure it out.

To end with just a little bit of actual content for this entry, I provide you one of the things that has made me laugh in the past week. If you've watched TV at all in the past couple months, you couldn't have missed this Heineken commercial. Well, as with any decent commercial, you quickly get tired of it when it's played every break.

Well, this past week, the Cavs debuted a new sketch on the Q-Vision in between quarters during the victory over the Pistons. It has since been posted online, and I simply am going to tell you to watch it. As much as I hate the word, this team has ridiculous chemistry and brotherhood. But that means nothing if they don't play well. However, I imagine they will because like Delonte says at the end, "It's the Playoffs man, It's the Playoffs."

So the Cavaliers present their Playoff Proposal. They're Ready (and up 2-0 against the Pistons with Game 3 starting as I write this). Are you?

Coming up tomorrow/later this week/in the future: Baja Fresh and the Coke Machine that Wasn't, Tracing the lineage of the current Cavs Roster, and OSU's Spring Game.

On the Road Again...

First things first. I moved the blog onto my own permanent hosting. So the blog is now officially located at instead of

The old Blog Spot address should still work though. The reasons for this are numerous. The main being it gives me options with how to proceed. I may consider making this into numerous blogs, or I may convert to WordPress (another blogging package). If I do either of those, I will probably just archive this one.

The other option, and the one I will do for the immediate future, is to just throw everything into this one. Mainly because of the next news.

Assuming I'm able to fall asleep within the next 2 hours or so, I plan on getting up around 7 or so and showerin and stuff before headin up to Lima, Ohio. It will be my first real time in Western Ohio, since Cincinnati is Southwest and Toledo/BG is Northwest.

The reason for this excursion is the Lima Poker Championship being held at the Allen County Fairgrounds. It is a up-to 600 person $100 charity tournament. It is actually quite excellent structure... almost equal to some of the premiminary World Series events. This should take some amount of luck out of it, and make it better for more skilled players, which I believe gives me an advantage. Last year, I believe they had about 300-some players, and the winner received $12,000, so I'm looking forward to the opportunity.

The doors open at 9AM, and they will be running $20 satellites until the main tournament starts at 1PM. I hope to get there by 10AM, hopefully play and win 2 satellites, which would pay for my $100 entry fee, $50 rebuy, and $50 add-on amounting to a total for 35,000 chips... all for a whopping $40 bucks. If this succeeds, I hope to have an hour or two break and head into Lima for a little viewing of the suburb-less Youngstown of the west and see if I can find one of these infamous Kewpee's that is supposedly Wendy's but better. Then back to the fairgrounds for a rousing session of poker, hopefully culminating in winning.

This leads me to the next fun fact. I've found out that Blogger allows mobile blogging. So all throughout tomorrow, I plan on sending fun little pictures and captions, as well as status updates on my progress to this here blog via my phone.

Hopefully I'll be finding a hotel in Lima and be back in Columbus on Sunday, because I'll have been playing poker for 16 hours and will be too tired to drive back.

So all I can say is wish me luck, and Stay Tuned...
