So I woke up today ready to enjoy one of my two saturdays I get off a month. I was gonna start my day heading to a local record store for Record Store Day. It sucks that in my area I'm more than 15 miles from any record store, let alone one that celebrates Record Store Day, and its no easy trek around this area sometimes. Especially on the weekend.
For this special day I had my eye on one particular item...
Obliviously, right? I decided to make a few calls before I even wanted to head out cause it was the only thing I wanted to get for the day.
1st place I called it was already sold out.
2nd place I called never picked up...
The 3rd place mentioned that they MIGHT have a Vinyl or two but they weren't sure with how busy it was in the store. The clerk also mentioned that they only received half of their shipment for the special day and told me to call back on Monday.
Ok, so no biggie. Not like I need it or anything (sarcasm). So I decided it was time to get out the house enjoy the sun...indoors at the stores lol
I got some food cause, well, I'm a big boy who needs to eat haha
I went to the movies to see Transcendence...
I didn't think it was all that terrible, but it wasn't really good either. It started off ok, but then things got weirder and stranger as the movie went on. Some things just didn't make sense. It's hard to explain. But If you REALLY want to see the movie don't let me stop ya. But if you're on the fence, I suggest waiting for it on video.
I then decided that I needed to get some new shoes. It's usually this time of year I splurge on new kicks and this year isn't any different. But this year I had realized that I hadn't bought a new pair in quite sometime...
And the Coup de grâce of Treat Yo Self! day
I had placed an order for this jersey at a local sports shop in the mall a week or so ago. Much cheaper than actually ordering it from the actual Tigers website/MLB, and they would call me to let me know when it was gonna be done instead of waiting weeks or something. I've always wanted my own personalized jersey and I said "Fuk it!" It was a pretty obvious choice, right?? Plus, I needed a new hat as well.
I then came home and played some online gaming with my bro wallcrawler383 for a lil bit. As usual it was hysterics and good times as always.
Now I'm having a few drinks and playing some more gaming. Today was actually the first time I've played any games--on my PS3--in over a month or so.
So, yea today my wallet took a hit. But that was the point. I didn't need any of this stuff, but I didn't care. I had been saving up for awhile by not having a social life(lol) and not buying any movies in over a month. We all need a day were we just throw caution into the wind and live a little. I know my Mom would be happy that I had a little fun today. My parents always told me"
"No man is promised tomorrow."
So with that I close this lengthy blog.
Thank you Jack Roosevelt "Jackie" Robinson. Thank you for being the great and admirable person that you were.
Yes, you were the first black player in Major League Baseball, but it was more than that. It was everything you endured just to play baseball. He helped in starting to pave the way for someone like me to play sports, and equal treatment. Not only for me, but for everyone. No matter their race, creed, gender, etc.
Jack was a great ballplayer who had to show the world that he belonged. He not only showed class and perseverance on the ball field, he also maintained that off the field as well. He was very outspoken about his beliefs and always fought to insure those beliefs were heard.
He has always been my all-time favorite baseball player for so many reasons. Jackie Robinson is one of the big reasons why I love the game of baseball. Thank you, Jack...
