FESTIVE SEASON IS HERE ... Two weeks ago was Thanksgiving, Halloween is just a week away, and the Christmas season is only two months out. I don't really care for Fall, but all the parties & festivities make up for the cooler temperatures & shorter days. Tonight my friends Ian & Amie are hosting a little Oktoberfest party, and I'm very excited for this one. Here's the premise: since it's Oktoberfest, everyone must wear suspenders; I'm going with the full traditional "Lederhosen." Everyone must also bring a dozen beer, all the beers go into the Tugboat wading pool in the backyard, and it's kind of a "selve serve" beer buffet from there. I've also put together some "German Beer Drinking" music mixes for that extra special "Bavarian Beer Drinking" atmosphere!
RED BULL STRATOS UPDATE ... Last Sunday, Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner, thrilled the world with his incredible freefall from the Earth's Stratosphere in the Red Bull Stratos project. With his unbelievable accomplishment, Felix set five new World Records while becoming the first human to ever break the sound barrier during freefall. This is truly one of the most amazing events I've ever witnessed, the question now is ... Where do Extreme Athletes go from Here?! Watch for documentaries from the BBC and National Geographic next month, and visit these sites for more: www.RedBullStratos.com or www.GuinnessWorldRecords.com/news/2012/10/confirmed-felix-baumgartners-free-fall-from-space-sets-five-new-world-records-45463
HOCKEY FROM THE GROUND UP ... Do you have kids who play hockey? More specifically, is your child a goalie? If so, then you know that young goaltenders get way less coaching, training, and attention, right? If you're looking for some specialized one-on-one coaching for your kid, then you should contact these guys: http://HockeyHaus.webs.com. Local, experienced, and understanding, Sean & Mario can fine-tune your child's goaltending skills based on his / her natural talent and style. They're just starting up, and if you know anyone who has video equipment, and / or editing skills, they'd love to talk to you. Great dudes looking for a little start-up support.

BASEBALL PLAYOFF TIME ... The New York Yankees are the only MLB team I've ever cheered for (other than the '92 / '93 Jays), but what I saw yesterday from the Yankees left a bad taste in my mouth. I don't know if I've ever seen a more disinterested team on the bench in a do-or-die situation; A-Rod sucks! The Detroit Tigers completed an easy sweep of the Yanks and are now on to the World Series. New York didn't even have a lead at any point in the series! We'll see who the Tigers face in the World Series as the NLCS wraps up between St. Louis and San Francisco over the next couple of days. Get the latest playoff updates here: www.MLB.com
