They never let me anywhere near the studios but I'm sure I'd have the best "one hour - all request hour" if they did!
Hi! I'm Mike The Web Guy. My boss told me that I should start one of these blogs, even though I'm not "on the radio." After being told that it was a "good idea," I figured, "why not?" I could always use another thing to do. Things about me... I'm a HUGE San Diego Chargers Fan (Any SoCal Locals who want to get together for a game - COMMENT back at me and let's HOOK IT UP). I live in Clifton Park. I'm all about APPLE (sorry PC people). I have a woman who lives upstairs in my house who is related to me by marriage. We have two kids who pretty much run our social life.
Does anyone else get themself something for Christmas? It probably sounds selfish, but who REALLY knows you better than... YOU? I started getting "self" gifts at Christmas about five years ago when I realized that no matter how well your friends and family know you (or think they do), no matter how many hints or suggestions you drop --- you never get the ONE thing you really wanted on Christmas Day.
I also believe: I've worked hard all year, I should be able to get myself something for that!
Now, these "self" gifts never exceed $50, for example: this year's gift was $20.00 but took about three days to find.
It's probably hard to believe but there are NO Notre Dame hats left in the Capital Region. I'll save you the time and effort of looking. I called Colonie Center, walked through all of the "sports" stores at Crossgates, looking high and low for a simple Notre Dame hat that a 35-year-old man could wear. Sure, the throwback look is in. Sorry, I hated that look in 1988 and can't stand the flat brimmed fitted hats that kids wear today. I'm already bald enough, I don't need to wear my hat like Charlie Brown too!
After two days of searching, I stumbled across this hat at the Olympia Sports store in Clifton Park.
There were two hanging on the rack when I arrived and one was left after my trip to the register.
Fast forward to Christmas Day when the unthinkable happened: my sister-in-law remembered something I mentioned at the Family Holiday Party... my suggestion which I though would go unfullfilled.
Now, I have two Notre Dame hats. Thankfully, I have another Notre Dame fan in the family with a birthday coming up.
And the "giving season" continues.
