Opening THE PLAYBOOK with Spencer Melfi

Have you ever wanted to learn about sports from a real professional?  Well, I haven't.

All the same, I was recently asked to bring my expertise about the world of sporting to a new web program, THE PLAYBOOK with Spencer Melfi.  As you'll see in the video below, the results are sublime.

I don't think I'll be asked back.

ARGOF*CKYOURSELF: 2013 Oscar Live Blog

 It's the day of the Oscars!

Oops! Wrong Oscar.

There.  Much better.

You guys, it's the 2013 Academy Awards! Or as I like to call it - Sycophant Christmas!

Join me right here as I live blog all the comings and goings OR join in the action and feel free to comment along.

I'm currently looking to recruit Dave & Giggles' very own Mike Bradly, but he has a baby, so he'll probably not even show, the jerk.

Anyway, I'm going to start drinking.  The magic begins at 8:30, and I'm already adorned with a million shimmering Swarovski crystals.  May the magic of Motion Picture God (money) bless us all.

Training Day: Race to Stop MS

When Sunday rolls around, it can mean only one thing: it's time for another training day to prep for the Race to Stop MS / New York City Half Marathon.  Unlike the Ethan Hawke, I don't have a drug pushing, crooked Denzel Washington challenging me to see if I "got the stuff".  No, me, all I've got is a training schedule I pulled off and the MapMyRun app.  Regardless, the results are just as thrilling as the more well known Training Day.  Take a look at the below, and I think you'll agree.

I hope you enjoyed this look into my training day.  Thanks so much to all who have supported me in my run so far.  If you'd care to help CLICK HERE.  BOOM!

FAQ for My Fellow Potential Juror

Why Hello Disgruntled New York City Person Called In for Jury Duty!

It is not great to meet you this sub-Arctic/hellishly-humid day.  It seems we've both been called for jury duty, and that's...something.  Before we get started with whatever insipidly forced banter which is inherently about to ensue, I wonder if I might provide you with some FAQ's with regards to some questions you might have, okay?  OK.  Here you go...

Mad Men Season 6 Predictions

This, my Madison Avenue Manics, is how long you have to wait until the Season 6 Premier of television's famed programme, Mad Men, which returns to the airwaves, or cables, or however you young whippersnappers receive media transmissions these days.

April 7th, this seems like a long time, doesn't it? It is. To make the wait time a little more tolerable, I have decided to let you in on a few predictions I think we can anticipate in Season 6.  Let's see what April has in store.

Do you know what this is? This is...

THE PragueBlog

Yes, dear chickadees, the wifey and I are in Prague this week.  Why?  Because we love idyllic scenes and freezing our asses off. In lieu of this, rather than posting a summary of bell-kicks, I've decided to provide you with the livefeed of our activities.  It's like you're there with us, but warmer.  So hop aboard and scroll on down, we're headin'... TO THE PRAGUEBLOG!

What's that? You still want to see me bell-kick? Well, okay, if you insist.

Now off to bed with you.

Running is Weird, But I'm Doing It (for Charity)

Running is weird.  You have to get naked, go to sporting events, and there are always Coppers chasing you. All the same I'm going to do it because I'm serious about fitness (& helping others).

Yes, my friends, March 17th, St. Patrick's Day, I will be running the New York City Half Marathon to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Now I know you've got questions, so I've decided to provide some answers:

  1. Why are you running the Half Marathon? Delusions of grandeur.
  2. Why are you running? I only found out that I have the ability to do this the other day by accidentally walking fast.
  3. How will you deal with all the taunting you'll receive from the other vastly more capable runners? With green beer that I will carry in a hat with straws built into it, which will hydrate me while I run.
This is a very exciting endeavor that I'm really pumped to undertake. I've been very fortunate in the past to be supported in these fundraising efforts by all you fantastic Gumptioneers, as we work to raise money to combat MS.  I hope you'll consider supporting me as I attempt something new this year!

That said, would you consider contributing towards my run?  If you can spare a few bucks, it would be greatly appreciated.


 To donate, simply click the link above and when you arrive on the page click "Donate to Patrick" at the top of the thermometer - and you're off to the races (so to speak)!  My first fundraising goal of $750 is due on February 8th, so I am truly grateful for any support you may be able to provide.

As always, thank you all for your kindness & generosity when it comes to supporting this cause that directly affects those near & dear to me.  Over the past (5) years, we've collectively raised over $15,000 benefiting the MS Society and that's pretty darn special - my sincere thanks to you all.

Oh, and if you're free come out and see me cross the finish line on March 17th in Central Park.  I'll be the exhausted, naked one with the beer hat.

With Regards to Facebook, In 2013 Can We All Agree...

U.S. Americans, we did it. We beat the ancient Mayans & their "calendar", and we once again rein as rulers of the Universe.  Go buy yourself something nice.

Now that we've survived to toil yet another year, it's time you and I had a little chat. A chat about Facebook.

When we thought the world was about to end, I let a lot of stuff that you posted on Facebook slide.  However, now that we're all still standing, I'd like to take a quick moment to present you with a few Facebook resolutions that I'd like You to enact in 2013, the year of our Lord.
