A few weeks ago, I had to go to Denver for a work conference. I say “had to” like it was a hardship, like I haven’t wanted to go to Denver for a couple of years now.  The conference started on Monday, but I flew out on Friday evening to have a couple of personal to do some sightseeing. On the Sunday, I rented a car and drove up to Rocky Mountain National Park to drive the Trail Ridge Road. If you ever want to realize how insignificant you are in the grand scheme of the universe, go take a… View Post

Ahhhh, October is here. The month where it finally starts to get a bit chilly (hello again, my moto boots!). The month where pumpkin stuff is deemed socially acceptable. The month where I celebrate the glorious occasion that was my arrival on this earth. That’s right my friends, October is my birthday month, and I milk it for all it is worth.

When it was announced that the USMNT would be playing a Gold Cup group match, I didn’t have to think twice about whether I would attend. I had been to Boston before, a couple of years ago, in the dead of winter, so I was excited to have the opportunity to experience the city in the summer.  I also have many friends that live in and around Boston, thanks to our two weeks in Brazil last summer, so I was excited to meet up with all of them.

At the end of June, I had the pleasure of traveling to Brooklyn to attend the 5 Times, a Former Liverpool Players Association event. Essentially, former LFC players travel the world, telling stories about growing up and playing for Liverpool, all while raising money for charity. I sprung for the meet-and greet package, so I could tick off Bucket List Item #32: Take a Selfie with a Liverpool Legend. The fellas were a bit late arriving to the event, as they were caught in traffic from the airport, so the meet and greet started a bit late. However, once the… View Post
