wow, it’s really been a long time

Graduation – an emotional yet exciting day. The family really enjoyed the trip to Columbia from NJ via Kansas City, and I’m glad they got a good taste of where I’d spent 4 years of my life. I won’t lie – I shed quite a few tears the day before my departure. Saying goodbye to […]

“Goin’ to Kansas City. Kansas City here I come…”

I PA’d the Kansas/Missouri baseball game last night at Kauffman, and it was awesome. We arrived in time to really take in the stadium and walk around all the nooks and crannies not usually seen by the average fan. I hung [hanged?] out for a while on the field and in the dugout before the […]

St. Louis trips and half-marathons

I’ve been to St. Louis twice this past week – once to PA announce the Mizzou/Illinois baseball game at Busch Stadium (which I get to below), then today I ran the St. Louis half marathon. The 1/2 mar. went well, I finished in 2:06:40, my slowest of the 3 I’ve run by about 10-15 seconds […]

A day in the 100 Acre Wood

I covered the Rally of The 100 Acre Wood this past weekend, and boy, it was a great time. I’m lucky I got the chance to do it – back in mid-January, Eric Blumberg, KOMU’s assistant sports director, asked if anyone knew about rally racing after he received an email from a viewer asking if […]

Using “Foursquare”

So far this semester I’ve joined a few new social media sites recommended by Jen. I’ve begun to use Foursquare often, and I really like it. It’s a very interesting way to map place and coordinate a group “sense of place” among individual people. I use the term “sense of place” because I took a […]

travels home

Finally arrived home in NJ Tuesday after not being home since August. I stayed in Columbia until yesterday because I filled in a few live truck shifts. Otherwise I would have flown home Sunday. But anyway, I flew out of KC to Newark, and took the MO-X shuttle so I could leave my car at […]

November update

This is the 1st Friday I’ve been free since the start of the semester! I’ve shot football games just about every Friday night, and with high school football just about over, I’m pretty much free now on Friday nights. I’m gearing up for a trip to Manhattan, Kansas tomorrow for Mizzou’s game against the Kansas […]

Back in NJ

I have returned to the great state of New Jersey for a little downtime with the family. I really enjoyed the drive back. It wasn’t nearly as brutal as I expected it to be. I left Columbia at about 4:30am Friday, July 31. Yeah, I know it was 4:30, but it wasn’t that bad! I’m […]

Update from the AIR on last week

My apologies for not posting this after the shifts. I got caught up in packing/preparing for my trip to Hawaii. I type this sitting on layover in the majestic Phoenix airport with a view of several USAirways Airbus 319s, “downtown” Phoenix, and Chase Field – home of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Anywho, I’m pumped to be […]

Hawaii/Meat Grinder/Gasconade County days
