Trying to read more! Maybe publicly sharing my embarrassing pace will motivate me. Suggestions welcome!
- •How We Got To Now by Steven JohnsonBrilliantly lays out the six greatest innovations that shaped our lives. Describes a "hummingbird" effect and how seemingly smaller discoveries give way to bigger innovation. Best book I've read in a while.
- •Dealing by Terry PlutoRecounts how the small market Cleveland Indians underwent an accelerated rebuild to become a World Series contender. Written like a long sports article rather than a narrative but behind the scenes stories are intriguing, especially how Bartolo Colon deal went down.
- •We're All Damaged by Matthew NormanHilarious and light story about a Midwesterner become New Yorker who returns for his grandfather's funeral while in the midst of his own nasty separation.
Entering the world of Whisky, here's what I've got so far. Continually updating as I go! Very much a rookie, recommendations welcome!
- 1.Aberlour 16 yearStrong first sip but so smooth. A new favorite!
- 2.Macallan Select OakA little harsh on first taste, I drink with a capful of water, has a sweet taste at the end like a rum filled chocolate? Not a fan of the nose but taste more than makes up for it
- 3.Crown Royal Northern HarvestAnd not just because Jim Murray said so, my default whisky
Ranking the MLB parks I've been to, continually updating
- 1.Old Yankee Stadium, New York YankeesNo doubt #1 park I've been to, easy to get to, plenty of parking, lots of cheap (knock-off) souvenir shops nearby, was really cold during opening week but A-Rod walk off grand slam made it worth it, missed Monument Park but enjoyed just walking around the park pre game, could feel the history, can't imagine the new one is even close, would not want to cheer for the opposing team here
- 2.Wrigley Field, Chicago CubsA classic, when I went there were no screens or massive scoreboards which was a huge plus, gotta sit in the bleachers to complete the experience, surrounding area is called Wrigleyville, recommend going a couple hours pre game and hanging out post game, will definitely return, haven't sat on the rooftops in LF but maybe next time
- 3.PNC Park, Pittsburgh PiratesFrequented this one a lot while living in Pittsburgh, great views of the city especially Clemente Bridge, plenty of nearby bars and places to hang out pre and post game, awesome atmosphere, can park at nearby Heinz Field but best to walk over to enjoy the beautiful city
