"Rounding Third and Heading for Home" is in lights on the 3rd base side outside GABP. I've always thought 'And This One Belongs to the Reds' should be in lights on the 1st side outside GABP.

I'm kicking around an idea. Kelly and I love all the travel recommendations we get from listeners. What if we did a listener trip/vacation?

We started watching Mayor of Kingstown on Paramount +. Dang. Really good. I became a big Jeremy Renner fan after watching the ABC 20/20 special on his near death experience with the snowplow a couple of years ago.

Do you remember the mad dash around the house to scrounge up money when you heard the music playing from the ice cream truck as it hit your neighborhood?

Song I cranked the radio to this week: Young Turks, Rod Stewart!

I've never seen the movie The Outsiders.

On our list: The Root Beer Stand in Sharonville. Never been.

Cassette tapes and the Walkman are coming back? I'm in!

I never imagined we'd enjoy getting into riding bikes like we have. It's like a mini adventure each weekend.

Did you ever play crab soccer in gym class? You had to move on all fours and kick a giant ball on the wrestling mat.

We've started watching Criminal Minds Evolution on Paramount +...We watched the original series from start to finish.

According to a recent survey, Dr. Pepper has moved to the No. 2 selling soft drink behind Coke. Remember the jingle,
"I'm a Pepper, he's a Pepper, she's a Pepper.....wouldn't you like to be a Pepper to, be a Pepper, drink Dr. Pepper."?

I appreciate great customer service. I was struggling installing a new seat on Kelly's E-Bike from Buzz Bicycles this week. I called my guy Kris Parlett. 15 minutes later, he sent me a video he shot, on the spot, showing me the step-by-step of how to do it. Boom!

The ‘Brats’ documentary (Hulu) by Andrew McCarthy was excellent. I loved how it was shot/edited. Really moving reflections from the group. I think the best exchange was between McCarthy and David Blum, the author who coined the name Brat Pack. Uncomfortable, but really good.

Ever see a movie on vacation? We had an afternoon gap without anything to do for a couple of hours in Chattanooga, so we went to see a movie IF. We loved it. Cailey Fleming was exceptional.

I get a kick of people that complain about something that might not even happen. Advanced complaints. Predictive angst.

When I think 4th of July, I think red-white-blue bomb pops. I loved those. I had no idea they make 'mashups', with different colors/flavors.

I think many baseball fans feel if something goes wrong/doesn't work, it was because of analytics. How would we possibly know what analytics are used and when?

I had a mini Rubix cube keychain when I was in middle school.

Big fan of the Miley Cyrus/Beyonce song II Most Wanted.

A weird episode, then another extremely intense episode to start Season 3 of The Bear.

The Cubs gave Craig Counsell 5-years/$40M to be their manager. They are in last place. Again, managers have less of an impact on games than at any point in history.

I've never done Karaoke.

Don't worry about things you don't care about
