So, today, all my Jose Altuve praise and updates on the Astros have to wait. You know why? Because the Kansas City Royals not only made the playoffs (if you count the one-game wild card as a playoff game), but they won. Dramatically. They did "old-skool" with stolen bases and timely hits. They looked patient, poised, determined and ultimately, they were successful.  'Round here, most of you are Dodger fans. There are some Angels' fans as well, but I'm not sure it matters who you are, you just better start getting worried. There's a pretty bad-a$$ Blue Crew on the other side of the Rocky Mountains, and they're playing for keeps.

This one is for Dave from Forney (or Dallas). Congratulations, man. #bluegrewiscomingforyou

    So, I was gone yesterday and I realized something... I like teaching, a lot. I miss you guys when I'm not around. However, I'd like to think I'm making a difference and creating better educational opportunities for everyone when I'm gone. With that in mind, I can justify being gone... I just don't want to forget how much I truly like teaching.
    Quick update, the Astros have a new manager. His name is A.J. Hinch... he managed the Arizona D-backs a few years ago. He has a .420 winning percentage. The lowest in D-backs history. However, I believe in what the organization is doing, and #inluhnowwetrust.

      Today is the last time Derek Jeter will every play a Major League Baseball Game in Yankee Stadium... I hate the Yankees and that makes me sad. Much like Mariano Rivera last year, this guy is truly special and will especially be missed... I do hope he plays this weekend in Boston, though I doubt it will happen.

          You what really grinds my gears? Politics. I hate them. However, I've somehow managed to get myself involved with local politics way more than I thought I ever would. Not that it's all bad, but never imagined I'd be interviewing candidates for our local school board, attending town hall meetings, or helping promote candidates. It's just an example of how you can (and sometimes will) find yourself involved in something you dislike because it's the right thing to do. So, instead of complaining, I'm just going to put on a smile and do it... much like you should do with your homework. 

          You know what else grinds my gears... Family Guy References. 

          I love it when all the evidence I find in a picture actually goes against what I was trying to prove... background information is a beautiful thing.
