Check Out the Food Prices @ Augusta National

The practice rounds at Augusta National are underway! Yes, that time of year has arrived. The Masters Tournament at Augusta National in Georgia. Now, you would expect that for an event like The Masters that food and drinks would be GROSSLY overpriced, but the truth is actually contrary to that! In fact, the prices are INCREDIBLE!


One Time I Went to A Timber Rattlers Game in Appleton

This post is for an adoring fan of mine who likes to comment on my political posts and call them all “propaganda” since we all know that if you don’t agree with something you can call it “propaganda” and that means it is automatically not true and all hearsay and that whatever you say in response is definitely fact and NOT “propaganda”… Right… Whatever… Oh well…

He also doesn’t like posts about food or microbreweries… or technology I assume… Oh, and if I try to connect with my friends and family in Minnesota it is “crap” So, lets try sports. I went to a Wisconsin Timber Rattlers game on May 5, 2012. I had never been to one so I thought “why not?” since I like MiLB baseball.



It was pretty fun. The T-Rats won and I had the opportunity to dig in a sandbox to try and win a vacation.

Edmonton Oilers: The 1990 Stanley Cup Champions

On this date in 1990, the Edmonton Oilers won their fifth Stanley Cup, beating the Boston Bruins in a five-game final. The Final will be remembered for game one which still stands as the longest Stanley Cup Final game played in the modern NHL. Despite being soundly outshot by the Bruins, the Oilers won the game 3–2 when Petr Klima scored at 15:13 of the third overtime.  The Oilers would go on to defeat the Bruins in five games, and win their first Cup without Gretzky. For his superlative goaltending, Bill Ranford was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy. It was their first win without Wayne Gretzky, but then everything changed. Salaries soared, the Oilers couldn’t afford all their stars. Parity became a league initiative and dynasties took a tumble. Since 2003, there has been a new champ every spring. As for the last Canadian team to celebrate a Cup, it was the Montreal Canadiens 20 years ago, in a whole other era.
