Happy Birthday Wyatt!

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

Hey, Code Monkey here. I guess Wyatt wasn’t into making a big deal about his birthday this year. Maybe some years you just want other people make it a big deal for you. Or you change your passwords once in a while so other people can’t hijack your blog to convey birthday wishes for all [...]

Happy Birthday, Vincent Antonelli!

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

Today is Vincent Antonelli’s birthday. My good friend, hockey linemate, and drinking buddy is turning 40, and I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the occasion. And of course, by “acknowledge,” I mean post pics of fabulous babes like his favorite female hockey player, Finland’s (and Ohio State’s) Emma Laaksonen. I can only imagine [...]

The Butler Did it

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

There are certain truisms in life: death, taxes, and Wyatt and his friends will see the Psychedelic Furs anytime they are within a 100 mile radius of Philadelphia. Last night, another truism was confirmed, as the world’s greatest band played in my hometown, at the Trocadero Theater. In attendance were me, RT, Deathlok, Mrs. Deathlok, [...]

Happy (Belated) Birthday, OtherKev!

Saturday, August 22nd, 2009

Yesterday was my good friend Kevin’s birthday. My friends and I refer to him as “Other Kev” (or OKev) because the original Kevin is Deathlok. OKev is one of my best friends, and although he moved to Tucson, AZ a few years ago, we still talk on the phone once a week – and more [...]

Drunk Badger Disrupts German Traffic

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

This is easily the funniest title of the week. Jim from bRight & Early sent me this, with the message, “When was your friend in Germany?” Actually, The Badger is spending the week in the tropics – he’s getting married on Saturday – but he was nowhere near Berlin. Although, this is exactly the kind [...]

Golf: It Takes A Lot Of . . . Clubs

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

Well, I’m back! You didn’t even know I was gone, did you? Well, I spent Sunday and Monday at the Heritage Hills Golf Resort in fabulous sunny York, Pennsylvania – Home of the Most Pushable Amish in the State! Last year’s excursion was, um, interesting, as I remembered very little of it. (Lousy al-key-hol!) This [...]

Fore! Score And One Day From Now . .

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

Tomorrow begins our annual golf trip to Heritage Hills Golf Resort in York, Pennsylvania. My friends – Badger, Vinnie, and Fish – and I have been going the outing set up by Badger and Deathlok’s brother Sean for years. It consists of two rounds of golf with carts, and overnight stay at the course hotel, [...]

Game On!

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

Actually, in this case it would be, “Rout On,” but you get the idea. Last night, we faced off against the Catamounts, a team which was winless in 9 games. Since we have lost two in a row, we didn’t want to come into the game with a big, Rosie O’Donnell-esque head, so the guys [...]

Happy Birthday, Vincent Antonelli!

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

Today is my good friend Vincent Antonelli’s 39th birthday. It is a great time of the year, because he and I will be the same age . . . for about five months. Hey, as the old guy in my circle of dysfunctional friends, I’ll take what I can get. Vinnie and I met in [...]

Settling Up

Saturday, December 6th, 2008

Never say that I don’t pay up on my bets. Every year, my brother-in-law (“Fish”) and I make our college football wager. I am a Michigan Wolverines fan, and he is a Penn State fan (and alum). For the past five years or so, we have made the same wager. The loser of the Michigan/Penn [...]
