A Best-Of-Seven On The 28th: Family First

I had my sons on my last blog post so no better time to be a proud Dad than with my daughter on her 27th birthday today!

(2) I finished up my 7th script today for a client I began working for in Greece in early April. Born on Maui in 1996, XTERRA has grown into a worldwide series of off-road triathlons and trail runs.

(3) #23, LeBron James, keeps proving the doubters wrong. Another game 7 win last night vaults the CleVeland CaVs into the NBA Finals!


(4) #NHLalphabet Give me a V for Vegas in the best-of-7 Stanley Cup Final beginning tonight in Sin/Stick City against the Washington Capitals! Who could have predicted that for an expansion team? Give them credit though. You have to love the unpredictabilty of sports✔️ I'm picking Washington to win it all!

(5) Happy 73rd Birthday to John Fogerty! #MusicMonday He will be playing in our area (Penticton) on Saturday, July 14th.


(6) Let's limit the fires please in our beautiful province of British Columbia! There was a close call at a local winery a couple of days ago. Kelowna firefighters remind the public that campfires and outdoor wood burning appliances are not allowed within city limits at any time.

(7) Game 7 tonight with Golden State in Houston. I'll go with the Rockets to advance against LeBron in the NBA Finals. I think they will win by 7 points.
No problem for Houston...

Congrats Philadelphia! Can't Top or Pop That P!

My pigskin pick came true last weekend!


A few days before Super Bowl Sunday, I pledged my allegiance to the Eagles✔️

In voiceover, it's NOT good to pop your P's✔️
This headline was in the Capital News today.









One more P worth noting today. It's National Pizza Day and that is our son's specialty as he runs his own store🍕 Nice work, Justin! PS Don't forget the bacon!

"Sometimes I place orders at multiple Domino's just so I can watch them race on the pizza tracker."

Hockey Dreams and License Plates

Yesterday, our son, Justin, and a friend drove down to Vancouver to see his favorite team - the LA Kings! It was his first NHL game and it was NOT the road team's finest effort - losing 6-2.

My team, the Sabres, are in Vancouver tomorrow night after last night's 5-0 shutout win in Edmonton! On Monday, the Sabres won another in Alberta - beating Calgary, 2-1, in overtime.

I noticed last night at the first stoppage of play in Vancouver that they played Tom Petty's "Runnin' Down A Dream." Tied in nicely with the banner on Justin's car!

Justin's younger brother, Jordan, has a license plate that is a nice reminder of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on January 15th.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Quote: I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed; We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.

I once had a cool license plate that started with NHL in the late '80's when I worked in radio. But unfortunately they were stolen while I was doing a shift. As I recall my next license plate wasn't as cool with NRD.

My wife has an interest in license plates. Here is the story that has inspired me and many others:
