Thirty Years In The Making

World-series-champions

1985 was a year of great films and great sports memories. I got my first car, an Olds 442. My best friend Joe (Scorpio) and I were having a lot of fun seeing movies and being kids. Things were going great the first few months of that year. From there, things seemed to head south. My mother collapsed at work from the early stages of heart disease. My grandfather (her father) had two heart attacks. My grandmother was told her cancer had returned and she only had a few months to live. Then came the news that my father had been promoted and in my junior year of high school, we were moving away from Kansas City to a small town in the middle of Kansas, far from my family and friends.

One of the better memories of the year came thanks to baseball. The Royals and the Cardinals were in the World Series. And it was great to see unfold. My parents were away looking for a house in the town where Dad's new job was. Grandma was being treated, so she couldn't be with us. As a result, my grandfather stayed with my sister, brother and me that week and we watched the series together. We were there when the final out was called and we were all smiles as Kansas City won their first World Series Championship. The next morning, Joe called us and said those famous words: "How 'bout them Royals?" It was one of the better memories I had that year.

Two months later, we were moved. I was the new kid at a decidedly more hostile school. My grandmother died on Christmas Eve. I remember thinking how much things were going to change from then on. It was a terrible way to end the year. I look back at that year and remember how many fun movies we saw and how great it was to watch the series and share with friends and family and I miss the closeness we all had at the time. It was a thin thread to hold onto at the end of a lousy year, but I held onto it.

I managed okay in my new surroundings. I met a girl. She was around about as long as the Olds was. I still miss the car, at least. I directed a play at 17 and picked up a Theater scholarship. I made a few friends along the way.

My grandparents are all long gone now, though I remember them fondly. My parents have been divorced since the year I graduated high school. (Believe me, some people should not be together, so this divorce wasn't a bad thing.) I've been back in Kansas City since 1988. Things haven't been too bad since then...in fact, they've been mostly very good. I'm thankful for that.

Fast forward to 2015. Here I am in the middle of another huge set of changes in my life, but under much better circumstances. I left a job where I was burned out. I paid off all my debts. I'm back in college now and my health is improving without the excessive stress or worry. Joe and I are both married to outstanding women, both of whom I can say without fear of contradiction have contributed greatly to our well-being and success.

We still get together now and again to see films or go to games, the next film coming very obviously in December. We've had a lot of terrific memories in the last 30 years. The most recent happened again at the hands of the Kansas City Royals. This years World Series came without controversy and without a doubt. The 2015 team is far superior to its 1985 predecessors and the way they came back over and over made their win that much more impressive. I will always remember the last strike being called and the team piling onto the field. I'll remember the entire city showing up for the parade and rally. And as I've done a few times in my life now, I'll remember looking up and smiling at Grandpa and thinking those words that Joe said to me all those years ago: How 'bout them Royals?

Beautiful write-up, my friend. Congratulations to your Royals. They were such a fun team to watch this post season.

Oh, and my Cardinals were robbed back in '85. ;p :)

Excellent blog, dude!

Hosmer running home in the top of the 9th in Game 5 will be forever etched in my brain. There are no George Bretts on the 2015 team, but God damn if every one of them came through at least one time when we needed them to.

Five hours nine minutes later, after 14 innings, game one of the World Series is over. Both teams put up a huge effort in what is the longest game one in Series history. It was a classic matchup and I'm excited to see how it ends. With all that said, my thoughts go out to Edinson Volquez, who learned after stepping off the mound this evening that his father had passed away.

Crimson Peak: 7/10. Think Victorian era ghost tale with Del Toro visual effects combined with a good dose of Wuthering Heights. Solid story telling, albeit predictable in places. Not a bad day at the cinema.

I don't need to explain how many ways I love this trailer. Everyone here has been doing a thorough job of that already. I will say come mid-December, I'm the happiest geek in all of history. I haven't been this hyped up in decades.
Joe Scorpio
Joe Scorpio at 05:46 AM Oct 20

Agreed. I haven't been this hyped for a movie since May 19, 1999. And it's a safe bet that we're gonna get a much happier ending.

Yesterday, I was accepted to college. I just turned in my notice to work. After 26 years 5 months at this job, I'm leaving it all behind to do what I want. I'm terrified, exhilarated, and happy all at once. After 40, the game isn't over. To quote my favorite prison film, 'Get busy living, or get busy dying.'

Pearl Jam survived the 90's and beyond with an impressive list of hits. Their live performances continue to be terrific and they continue to release new material regularly. I could list all my favorite Jam songs, but I don't have the time. One of the best acts of my generation, easily.

Joe Scorpio

2. Evolution
3. I love this band
4. I actually prefer "Evenflow" live version.

6. "Vitalogy" is one of my favorites.
7. Eddie Vedder's voice is a gift from the gods to this moral world.

Boredom at work and a love of food, mostly. :) I've been a foodie for a long time, so this was a natural fit.
