Like father, like son

Yesterday, Kyle Drabek made his major league debut for the Toronto Blue Jays in the same park where his father, Doug, closed out his career with the Baltimore Orioles. Dad was in the stands for his 22-year-old's first game, which he lost 3-1. A bright future is ahead for Kyle though!
Doug Drabek won 155 games during a 13-year career with the Yankees, Pittsburgh, Houston, the White Sox and Orioles, winning the NL Cy Young Award with the Pirates in 1990.

Here is a list looking at five other father and son combos.

Hockey is running through my sons' veins too! While I voiced the promos for the first two WHL games on Shaw TV this week (October 8 – Swift Current Broncos at Calgary Hitmen / October 27 - Chilliwack Bruins at Edmonton Oil Kings), my 15-year-old's audition for the Phoenix Coyotes was well received. Unfortunately, the script was later changed to use a couple of 20-year-olds. Way to go Jordan!

It is the home debut tomorrow of the Kelowna Chiefs hosting the Revelstoke Grizzlies. Here is my radio ad. As I have mentioned before (The Chiefs are in charge!), I am handling the PA duties for the Chiefs this season. My older son, Justin, will be keeping track of the stats for the Chiefs' home games. Way to go Justin!

One of the great supporters of the Rutland neighbourhood where we live is
realtor Grant Wiebe. I can recommend Grant no problem! I also know his Dad, Ken, well. Here is Grant's video blog shining light on the culture, business and people of RutlandKelowna's friendliest community.


PS 4:30 PM thought: If I become a realtor I will be changing my name to Rock House!
