Sign of the Apocalypse…

Filed under: Uncategorized — stevemryan @ 9:17 am

I just saw a Survival Kit with a Selfie Stick.  Well, it looked like a selfie stick to me.  I am guessing it was a survival kit for the impending zombie apocalypse.

Last week was my last day at work.  My wife wanted me to quit my job for her birthday.  She now says it was the best birthday gift she has ever received.  I am currently evaluating my gift giving abilities.

I am semi-retired.  I emphasize the retired but should probably concentrate on the semi.  I am waiting to sign papers authorizing my background check so I can become an assistant basketball coach at a local college.  Last Thursday, I went and watched the men’s and women’s teams play and it was interesting.  Saturday I saw the men play again.  I am looking forward to this opportunity.

Meanwhile, I am recharging my batteries and trying to become reacquainted with the concept of eight hour nights’ sleep and getting up after it is light outside.  This is a peculiar concept and I am curious to embrace it.

I made a four-minute video yesterday for my YouTube channel describing how to import teams to iScore.  I created a spreadsheet to help with this and it is much better than entering players one-at-a-time!

On the youtube page, there is a link to my dropbox site to download the Excel Spreadsheet Template I use in the video.  It works pretty well and includes everything except uniform numbers.

In approximately ten days I am heading to Jackson, Michigan for the Greater Michigan APBA Baseball Tournament III hosted by Pastor Rich.  I was a late entry and selected to use the 1915 Chicago White Sox.  They are a decent team that finished in 3rd place during the season.  Hopefully, they will do better for me.

The divisions have been posted so I hope to play some practice games before I leave for Michigan.  The other division opponents are 1907 Chicago Cubs, 1912 Cleveland Naps, 1912 New York Giants, 1919 Cincinnati Reds and the 1919 Cleveland Indians.  Should be some good competition.  I look forward to the games.

I am three games into my 1938 Cincinnati Reds replay of their one-run games.  So far the Reds have won all three and historically, they only won one of the first three one-run games so they have improved by two games.  It is fun to play the games and the research for the replay has been almost as much fun.

I am staying busy as a kept man and actually enjoy the honey do lists my wife has created for me.  Life is good and I look forward to my next chapter.
