Hey, I live in LA now. And only stop by to bug Smythe. Anyway, if you really want to catch up with me, it's not hard to find me. Feel free to friend me (what does that even mean?!) on FB or twitter or I dunno.

Or buy me a drink. I'm in Santa Monica, we're probably moving to El Segundo or...

I thought today was either going to be you winning, or a blow out. This is kind of ridiculous, your squad is much better than this, but Celtic just seems to need to get something out of their system.

In all fairness though Cierzniak is rather good, he's kept them in this big time.

kay:

Chile at the moment. BUT I'm supposed to be in Cali end of March into April!

Back from London, which was a lotta work. Hope you guys caught all the tape of it over on Fox Soccer and FoxSoccer.com -- and if you didn't, it's all archived on the website so you can see us guys walking everywhere.

Next up: African Nations, Olympics and then Champions League. A very, very busy year this. I cannot wait until August when...

Hope you are doing well too! Give love to your lady for me.

strongbhoy:

Congrats to your team, figured you guys were going to beat Celtic. If you can keep 3-4 of those guys you'll have quite a squad especially if YOU-KNOW-WHO gets the punishment they deserve.

Guess it's time for a small update. We'll be in London soon for the holidays (well, work, but over the holidays) and that should be quite nice. While it's not Scotland, it is rather close to it.

Things here in Chicago are OK -- just been very busy with all the sport and TV stuff -- and all told while some things could be...

Oh dude, I can get you some Mudhens stuff if you'd like. I assume you like them because of Mash? That's why most people outside of Toledo like them.

I, and my other best friend here (who also happens to be on SG) are "kind of a big deal" since we run our hockey ultras section and we know everyone especially in the Walleye franchise. The same guy runs game day operations for both, so I have no trouble getting you tickets if you are ever here, and I can pick you up some stuff.

I still need to get ink_addicted and his missus a few more MudHens and Walleye related stuff since their visit here last fall.

strongbhoy:

Ah, cool. Yeah, they used to be the Twins AAA team, so I have their jersey from back then (which is the Mash jersey).

Well, if you want anything, just let me know. Shop is just a short drive from here.

Poor wee boy. (Love his white chin. There's a lot of character in that face.)

My condolences. Not something one ever gets used to. (Or, at least, I certainly never have.)

jameswyper:

Aww, Jamie, we just got home and I saw this for the first time. Sorry for your loss, he was special. frown

Lavonne and JamesWyper had the Big Hipster Food Tour of Chicago this week, with stops at Kuma's, Longman Ampersand Eagle, Honky Tonk, Skylark, Ramova, Kohan (that one was just for soup, though) Maria's, Pleasant House and Three Aces.

They had her body weight in burgers (she can really maw a burger, BTW), had a lot of local greens and saw all kindsa parks...

Jamie, thanks for everything. It was great to experience your Chicago.
We'll be back, hopefully soon!

lavonne:

Yes, it was an awesome time indeed!

Lavonne and her man jameswyper are in town. I think I may have killed them with my "Let's see all of Chicago on my day off and by the way have you ever had a Kuma's Burger?" tour. I guess I won't have to buy cat food for a while.

Edited to add: Go see her instagram fotos of the metal.

Season's started. Maybe it never ended. Super super busy. If you really want to keep up with me, you can either follow me on facebook (it's not hard to find me) or, you know, call me up. Most of y'all have my number.

Anyway, I'm off to write about men in shorts kicking a ball.

Cheers and have a great rest...

WOOO! New profile pic! I saw your sis's pics. MARCEL! And you! Super cute.

Wedding and everything got canceled a week before...let's just say the groom turned out to be a narcissistic fucking asshole (tried some REALLY shady shit the week before the wedding with lawyers....).

However, I will get out there at some point so we can talk shop.

Wow, what happened? Oh yeah, soccer.

So, as you know by now (if you care, natch) I'm on the TV lots these days, supplementing my ever-constant appearances on the web, in the papers, on the radio and in the glossy magazines.

It's both weird and cool, but I'm enjoying it far more than I thought I would. I did a really neat...

Goodwillie, 2m a fair price?

Personally, I don't think teams will make an offer for him until his court case is cleared up, especially with what happened at Hearts.

What do you think about the US Men's coaching change?

Uh, wow, I guess it's been four months? Huh. Well, anyway, I'm just slammed with work (Fox, two books, other stuff) but all else is going very, very well. Personal life is awesome, thanks, and while Chicago's winter would be better if it would end at some point, all things considered, it ain't been a bad year.

kiss

strongbhoy:

I will, currently working out what I'm going to be doing with my "date" in terms of going around Chicago and stuff.

Shed Aquarium has already been decided, and there are about 5 baseball games I could go to.

I don't know what the wedding schedule is yet, as soon as I do, it might be easier to work out plans.

Your band isn't playing that weekend are they? biggrin

I guess I should update this blog once in a while, but I never do. This is probably because I'm a) not about very much and b) I have a lot of writing to do in the real world.

New book is 60 pages in, Fox keeps me busy, soccer is everywhere. Tis the news. Happy New Year's, folks.

Awesome, well I will be sure to get autographed copies for me and some friends just like last time if that's not too much trouble!

Does this novel have anything to do with a band reunion tour? biggrin
