My friend and I went to today’s game. While the Blue Rocks lost 8-7 against the Potomac Nationals, it was a fun event to attend, with excellent baseball weather. Tomorrow I head back home to the normal routine after a wonderful weekend.

The Fab Faux Concert

On Saturday night, my friend and I saw the Fab Faux at The Fillmore in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. This was our first time at that venue. My friend say them  seven times and I saw them three times.

What a magical evening. The set list consisted of The Beatles Greatest Hits, spanning the Beatles entire career of one of the worlds greatest of musicians.

Rarely has there been a band that could cover a groups likeness with such impeccable timing, pitch and skill. The Fab Faux could play each song almost as well as The Beatles themselves. The Fab Faux managed to engage the audience very well and the audience was completely captivated by the performance and sang along with the band for almost the entire set. At one point people could be seen dancing on the sides of the stage.

The fun and magic of the Fab Faux and The Beatles continues to survive and entertain audiences of all ages throughout the country.

Long Island Baseball

The start of Spring is nearly upon us. That means beautiful weather, being out doors and of course baseball!

The Long Island Ducks opened the ticket booths on Saturday March 18 2017. The tickets are now available to the public.

I purchased my ticket for opening day on April 28, 2017. Game time starts at 6:35 p.m.

The roar of the crowd, the thrill and chills of each player batting or fielding, the smell of the ball park. The sights and sounds are quite an experience. I cannot explain the fascination and love of the game, it just gets in a persons blood, it becomes part of them from a young age. It is something that is better explained by encounter with the game. This is what makes it great and part of The American Dream.
