High School – Wow

So Sean enters high school next year. Am I really that old? And has time really gone by that fast! Wow… Even worse, we have been doing a lot of running around for both kids getting them to various events almost every day of the week. We had hoped that it would ease up a […]

Football Week 2

Yes! The Lions finally win! They broke their 20 game losing streak and beat the Washington Redskins by a score of 19 – 14. And you know what, they actually looked quite good doing it. They have been steadily improving each week. While I don’t think they will win a bunch of games or make […]

Football Season Begins

It’s that time of the year again – football season! It’s the best time of the year for me. I really enjoy football on the weekends. For us, that typically means two things: Detroit Lions football and Sean’s football games. Now, we watch lots of NFL games on Sunday (and Monday) but it all revolves […]

My Poor Blog

Oh my poor little blog. How I have neglected it lately! It’s not really by choice, but things have become hectic around here. It probably sounds old, but with work and the kids now doing something damn near every night, time for Mr Papa’s World has been limited. I have managed to do little “Quick […]

Baseball Struggles Continue

Sean’s baseball team struggles continue with another loss. At least they are getting better each game and closer too. This time, the went down to defeat by a score of 10 – 7. The good new is that at one point in the game, they were actually leading 7 – 6. But once again, a […]

Close (Sort of) But No Cigar For Sean’s Team

Monday meant another baseball game for Sean’s team. They had started the season with two consecutive losses and were hoping to stop that bad streak in this game. Unfortunately, it was not to be as they went down to defeat once again by a score of 19 – 4. Actually, the game was a whole […]

Sean’s Team Loses Again

Game #2 of Sean’s baseball season is in the books. Like the first game, this one was another defeat. This time, the boys lost by a score of 10 – 3. It was a rather odd game to have to sit through and watch. If I remember correctly, the pitchers on Sean’s team limited the […]

Baseball Season Starts For Sean

Yesterday, Sean’s baseball team opened the season. Unfortunately, they got off to a very bad start and got walloped 20 – 0. Its shaping up as a very long year for Sean’s team. Last year, they had the best team in the area. Sean has been playing with the older kids and was going to […]

Basketball Season Begins For Sean

Football season is barely over, but basketball season has begun for Sean this week. They have already played two games and his middle school team is 1 – 1. Sean is the starting point guard for the team. Its ironic that he is even playing basketball. The sport was my favorite growing up as a […]

What’s Up With the Lions?

Holy cow, what has gotten into the Detroit Lions lately? They are finally starting to act like an NFL football team. Most of my readers know that I am an avid, loyal, long time Detroit Lions fan and am not afraid to admit it! 😉 They have, unfortunately, been the doormat of the NFL for […]
