Alex Smith to the Chiefs for a 2013 2nd Round Pick (33rd overall) and possible 2014 pick. I'm a big Alex fan, and I'm sad to see him go, but I'm happy he will be starting somewhere new. Andy Reid should have him playing well in the AFC West.

I've started a tradition that hopefully I'll be able to continue for many many years. Star Trek themed holiday cards. Right now it's just Leeann and I, but one of these years maybe the rest of my family will want to participate...
Special thanks to my best bud Lieutenant Beast for helping with Photoshop!
Live Long and Prosper and Happy Holidays!

My favorite baseball player capped off a historic comeback season with the NL's most prestigious award.
Buster Posey is the quintessential all American baseball player. Even the name Buster Posey sounds like a baseball player's name. Buster is the face of the San Francisco Giants. He's led his team to 2 World Series victories since his rookie season in 2010.
Last year (the only year the Giants didn't win the World Series in the last 3 years), Buster suffered a broken leg in a home plate collision with Florida Marlins Scott Cousins. The injury looked like it could be career threatening for the young catcher, but this season he came back stronger than ever.
His resilience, his poise in clutch situations, and his amazing ability is what makes Buster my favorite baseball player. As long as he stays a San Francisco Giant, I'll be a fan!

Last night the San Francisco Giants swept the Detroit Tigers 4 games to zero in the World Series. I should be elated since they're my team, but my joy is tainted with guilt.
I feel guilty that I didn't believe they could do it. I doubted them most of the regular season, and especially in the post season. It wasn't so much that I viewed them as an under dogs, it was just that after watching them in every single regular season game last year, I didn't think the team could possibly string together all of the necessary wins to accomplish what they did.
Next year they will most likely lose a lot of the good players that got them the win to free agency. If some how they are able to keep the team together, my faith will be renewed for next year. Go Giants!
