Detroit Rock City: Baseball, Beer and deBauchery

Have Buccos, Will Travel

I can thank Casey for my baseball addiction (which is preferable to say, a meth addiction). I had always liked going to Pirate games, but once he encouraged me to read Moneyball, I all of the sudden understood what it was they were doing. Turns out it’s much more than just standing there waiting for the ball to get hit.

Casey grew up a huge Detroit Tigers fan, and adopted the Pirates as his hometown team. So when he saw that the Pirates were going to Detroit to play a series, he asked me, hey, woman, want to go to Detroit and see the Buccos play? I said yes.

Blood, Sweat, Tears and Pee; The Pittsburgh Half Marathon – A Love Letter

Posted on

Here we are all bibbed up and ready to go!!

I’m going to start off with a quote from my mother: “If someone told me five years ago that Bethany would be running a half marathon, I would have peed myself laughing.”

Funny story. While running the half marathon I actually did pee myself. But not from laughing. And not even a lot. Just a wee bit. Basically enough to make it look like I had a glandular problem. But I’m getting ahead of myself. This story really starts on Christmas morning, 2011.

EXTREME SPORTS: The Dodging Sharks Edition

Posted on

Well, don’t YOU look tasty and delicious? NOM NOM NOM.

Casey’s mom and step dad own a condo on the beach in Ft. Myers, FL. We go there a few times a year for long weekends and family trips. It’s really become a home away from home. Every time we go we try to come up with new and exciting things to do, like drinking on the beach, sun tanning on the beach, drinking in the pool, drinking in the hot tub, drinking in the bar, drinking on the porch, sleeping, eating, and one time we rented a boat.

So this past trip down, we really wanted to mix things up and do something extreme. So extreme, so scary, that it literally had my legs shaking.

In Which I Ask You to Give Me Money

Posted on

And by me, I mean the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society. As you may know (because I have mentioned it roughly 5,ooo times) I am running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon this Sunday. I picked the Humane Society as my charity for a few reasons.

1.) I love animals.

2.) They receive ZERO government funding. That means the only way they can help animals is with YOUR assistance.

3.) Until I buy my farm so I can adopt 27 rescue dogs, this will have to do.

4.) The voices told me to.

If you are in a position to give just a few dollars, it would really make a difference. I won’t ask you for money for anything else, I promise.

Also, the person who raises the most wins a cruise to the Caribbean. If that’s me, I will pick one of my donors at random and take them with me. A cruise with me! How fun is that? Super fun!

Click here to give.

I hope you can help.

Yours in no more serious posts for awhile I promise,
