www.happyyoungster.com is on the web!

When you go to my website – www.happyyoungster.com you will be greeted with the following image:

Geoff Jenkins holding Happy Youngster signThat’s current World Series champion and former Milwaukee Brewers slugger Geoff Jenkins holding a handmade sign up for the Fox Sports cameras from the Brewers dugout.  I had made two game home run catches that day from the left field bleachers of Milwaukee County Stadium and Geoff was giving me a plug on TV.

Years later, I would catch his 200th career home run.  Click here to read about it.

Anyway, please check out the site…it’s strictly a fan site…not profit oriented.  Just a little something I started up to help me network with other fans around our great nation.

Thanks to the help of a good friend, I will be getting all my videos, interviews, highlights, etc. of home run catches I made throughout the years put on the site very soon.  I will also put those on this blog for those that are interested.  I have to thank fellow ballhawk Zack Hample for inspiring me to do this…thanks Zack!

    Isn’t that a great verse? It reminds me that baseball is utimately just a game, and that we’re looking forward to something bigger than our teams winning the World Series. I don’t think the Padres will be going there soon anyways 🙂 Thanks for the comment, I think I’ll eventually be OK with Trevor leaving, even though it will be hard.

    Thanks for stopping by the blog bro,

    Thing I like about Jenkins is his intensity and passion he brings to the field. I really respect a player like him, and I’m not suprised at all he hit that clutch double in the World Series this year. Its cool what he did for you.

    As far as restaurants in the downturn core. I’ve always liked the Pickle Barrel restaurant on Yonge and Dundas, but they are also in other areas of T.O. I’m satisfied whenever I walk out of there, the deli sandwiches are great. But we are men, so if you are going to be doing some real BIG eatin, I’d get the steak! I had a nice Sirloin with some Alaskan King Crab legs last time I was there. It was very good. I definately have had some better steak in the U.S., (notably in Georgia, Florida, New York, Washington, I really want to go to Chicago and K.C.) but this place is pretty good, and I love steak!

    Thanks again, and good luck with getting the balls. I was a week too late for Griffey’s 600th last season, when the Reds were in Toronto.

    That’s a great way to look at it. I was inspired to get that tattoo after reading “When Pride Still Mattered” the best book written about the life and times of the great Vince Lombardi.
    I have to constantly remind myself that baseball is JUST a game. I feel certain, at times, that I take the losses harder than the players. No way to really know for sure (after all, fan is short for fanatic). Hang in there with your Padres. It’s times like these that really test a fans’ devotion to their team.
    Better days are just an Opening Day away!

    Excellent blog post. Thanks for sending me the link. It’s all about balance. When you find balance, our great game is much more enjoyable.

    Thanks for the dining suggestions. I’m looking forward to my trip north of the border.
    I’ll most likely be driving so I can hit the Tigers home opening series on my way back home if Sheff doesn’t hit #500 in Toronto. I’ll probably be checking back with you for more Toronto tips.
    Thanks again.
