Back in the Saddle Again

It's been a long time since I last blogged.  Life got in the way (had another kid and became the co-chair to the 2016 National Homebrewers Conference).  I just couldn't find the time to get on here and jot down what was going on in my head.  Luckily for me, even though I have a lot going on, I am finally returning to a good place where I think I can come back and start writing again.

My goal for originally starting this blog was to work on becoming a better writer.  I've always been great with stuff like math and science, but reading and writing were definitely things I needed to work at in order to do well.  So I'm trying and hopefully if I make it here enough, my writing will become much better. 

Right now, my life is pretty much all being a Dad, planning the 2016 National Homebrewers Conference (which will be in Baltimore), and taking in as much baseball as I possibly can before the long, cold, baseball-less winter sets in here in the USA.

So far the baseball playoffs have been pretty amusing.  There was a bunch of teams in there who haven't won a World Series in a long time.  That's pretty cool as teams like the Mets and Royals haven't won a World Series since the mid-80's...my favorite years of baseball, when I was a kid and before I realized that baseball is a big business.  

I have a lot of friends who are fans of the Royals.  I also have a lot of friends who are fans of the Mets.  It's probably pretty much a 50/50 split.  Although I don't have a dog in this fight, I think I'm rooting for the Mets (although I reserve the right to flip flop back and forth several times before a champion is named).  I enjoyed watching the powerhouse Mets teams of the mid-80's and one of my favorite all time favorite players is Ron Darling, former pitcher for the Mets.  Plus, I wasn't enthused with the way the Royals pitchers were throwing at people earlier in the year.  No matter what the outcome, I think most people agree, we just want to see a great World Series.

Well that's enough for now.  I'll try and check in several times a week with what is going on and what I'd like to chat about.  Until then, cheers!
