Every fan has bad dreams, this one may be a nightmare...
It has been much to long since my last or any post on this blog. I have more catching up to do than I would like to admit. None-the-less this isn't cards, this isn't games, beer or music. The post is about my favorite team and the nightmare that may be lurk...

Mark Fidrych and the unknown hero of my blog
I LOVE me some Mark Fidrych, no idea why. Maybe because he reminds me of myself, eccentric, weird, misunderstood and awesome? All that, is besides the point. An unknown someone sent this card to my work and I couldn't be happier. I already found a parallel ...
