Hijinks Ensue: Comic Cover

Hijinks Ensue: Comic Cover

I ordered Godspeed, You Fancy Basterd! from Joel Watson, the online comic I follow, and not only did it come with a book packed with the comics and extra’s, but a bumper sticker and large print of the cover which now I got to get a glass picture frame for to hang on the wall.

I got the Ultimate Fancy Limited edition of 150 copies sold, but my copy was #32. Sweet!

I got am mail on Thursday from the USnailPS that my package was on my way and that it be here today. I just got back from work… and boom… It was here! I was so excited. I looked at all the comics since he done it online, but having a hard copy is really cool and flipping through the pages makes it look real professionial.

Support him by either going to his store ( or just check our his comic collection. Be sure to even donate to his cause as he does this full time. I know I like to do programing full time, but maybe that will happen soon. 😀

TTTTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEE YANKEES WIN THE PENNANT! That’s right sports fan. The Yankees are off to the World Series to face the Philadelphia Phillies. What a game 6.

After the Angles hand the Yankees walking papers in game 3 and 5 in LA, I thought for sure LA got the best of us but our starting pitching got us through the entire season.

So lets recap my predictions (fail).

WordCampNYC – Nov 14-15

WordCamp NYC 2009

Yes. Cheesy line from Armageddon (Provided by John Denver) , but that’s right… I am ready to rock n’ roll at WordCamp NYC 2009! Ticket are in order and sleeping arrangements are made for the area so I don’t have to drive back in forth from the island.

I’ll be representing as part of the WordPress Core Developers group when there attending the Advanced Development Sessions and Core Hackers. (might be the same thing..) Anyways… you can find more information here on the WordCamp NYC 2009 Website!


The Division Series games for baseball are now over and the Championship Series games are set. Just like I predicted, except in the number of games they it would take get to this point.

  • PHI vs. LAD – The only game that I was correct that it would take 4 games.
  • LAA vs. NYY – Who knew both teams were going to sweep!

The Yankees are still on track to face LAD in the World Series, but something I didn’t think of before. We could have either an East Coast Series with the NYY playing PHI or a West Coast (Highway) Series with LAD vs. LAA. However it could still be a mix of both West and East coast teams.

Game 1 of the NLCS is Thursday on TBS and on Friday it’s Game 1 of the ALCS on Fox. More great baseball on it’s way!


NYY, LAA, and LAD Sweep

Posted by Shane

My brackets are so off. Who would guess that all three of these teams would sweep. Hopefully I will get one right with the NLDS game of COL vs. PHI.

I watched the LAD sweep STL and after watching the batting styles of LAD, they are going to be a tough team to beat in a 7 game NLCS or WS. However, LAD pitching is still shaky compared to NYY’s 1-2-3 punch. NYY Game 3 pitching duel with MIN was a gem. Pettitte pitched like it was 1998 and even A-Rod came out in a clutch again. MIN failed in the running part of this game.

I am really surprised by BOS being sweeped by LAA without even winning at home. Tough break for the BOS team, but they were not playing their best at the end of the season; even being sweeped again against NYY at NYY.

Now it’s off to the ALCS on FOX. And yes.. I didn’t like the TBS broadcasters and style. They didn’t know anything!


The postseason is here… at least for me. The New York Yankees completed the three game sweep of Boston RedSox’s to secure the AL East Crown, even though they had already clinched at least a playoff spot a series before hand when playing the Los Angeles Angles in Anaheim, CA because of Texas’s lost to Oakland.

Lets just say that the AL Central race was also crazy. Who would ever predicated that it go to 163 games and the winner of Detriot vs. Twins would come down to one game. Hats off to the Twins! 12 innings. Walk off fashion! Instant Classic!

So what’s in store and how do I think it’s going to play out? Find out!
