ahh Summer Time , its been a very busy summer so far and its been a minute since I have posted,  so rather than post about a single subject I am simply gonna write and see what comes out….From Capri to Inception to the loss of Steinbrenner , it really has been a crazy summer to date…In just a few short weeks , Lebron went from sports icon to total DOUCHER , I became completely obsessed with Twitter, Hip Hop came back hard with great albums from The Roots, Drake, Big Boi, Eminem and Ricky Ross , The Yankee Organization was hit hard 3 times with the losses of THE BOSS, Legendary PA announcer Bob Shepard, and former player and manager Ralph Houk , Dave Matthews crushed Citifield , Nick Swisher was on the All Star team and in the Home Run Derby , great books by James Patterson and David Bladacci were read , Brock Lesnar battled Shane Carwin and pulled off a great victory keeping his UFC heavyweight belt , .The Yankees are sitting in first place atop the AL EAST……… AND…………..I bought six pairs of dope ass kicks (shout out to the crew at WEST on 72nd Street (WESTSIIIIIIDE!!!)

Baseball Hall of Fame

This weekend I take my annual trip to Cooperstown with my dad. It is a weekend consumed with the sport of baseball and the very deep history of the game, needless to say it is a great time and also very much symbolizes the mid-point of the summer and will certainly get a full post of its own.

So that’s my very brief summer to date recap…MUCH MUCH MORE TO FOLLOW

Dave Matthews Live at Spac!

Going to see the Dave Matthews Band live every summer is certainly one of my favorite things to do. Each and every show is a treat and this past weekend I saw Dave and the crew for the 19th and 20th time. It never gets old.

I have traveled to Fenway Park in Boston, Hartford CT, The Izod Center in Jersey and of course MSG right here at home. It is safe to say that SPAC is the bottom of the barrel as far as venues go, but truth be told Dave could play on a street corner and I would still love it.

Night one was a more high energy show and the band really killed it.

I can’t wait for Citifield in July. My only question is..when is Dave playing Yankee Stadium??…
