The Baseball Blog

Baseball might be my least favorite sport. Now, that doesn’t mean I’d turn down an autographed Mickey Mantle baseball (but I’d prefer his Topps rookie card). I’ve got about 10 signed baseballs (the Roger Maris one is probably my favorite).

Because I love football and find baseball to be boring, I thought George Carlin’s baseball/football bit was hysterical.

Yet I heard…

What Do Penny Marshall and LeBron James Have in Common?

It was sad news to hear that Penny Marshall died. It's even sadder that most people (over the age of 50), only know her from her TV work as Laverne on "Laverne and Shirley." She's directed some amazing films -- Big and A League of Their Own, both with Tom Hanks. Hey, there may be no "crying in baseball" but there can be crying for Marshall. Losing this talent, at age 75, is tragic.

I met her once. Well, strike that. I didn't meet her. She walked by me, and we smiled at each other. I…

What do Jennifer Lopez and Oscars Have in Common?

With a lot of awards being announced for movies, but still a month away from the Oscar nominations, I heard this story about the Profiles in History auction that had two Oscars. The best picture award for “A Gentleman’s Agreement,” the 1947 movie with Gregory Peck, went for almost half a million. The best picture statuette for “Mutiny on the Bounty” got about that half that. Now, there’s a rule that states you’re not allowed to sell the Oscar you win (and…

My Quest to Get Bruce Springsteen (or anyone in his band)

I’ve been on a quest to get my wife some Bruce Springsteen autographs. I make that plural, meaning...from the Boss himself, or any of the musicians in his band. Now, she’s not even into autographs. In fact, the only time I ever saw her excited about meeting somebody famous, is when she attended an event with me and got to take a picture with Rami Malek (pre-Freddie Mercury), because she liked the show “Mr. Robot”. But she’s from New Jersey, and it’s required…

The Hugh Hefner Auction

One of my autograph buddies always makes the two-plus hour drive to L.A. for autographs. Sometimes I hit him up to get me a signature, if it’s a book signing or something like that. I remember once he called me at a book signing and said, “For $50, they have this book that shows every Playboy centerfold, starting with the first issue.”

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner was signing them, and I said “Nah. I’m not that into…

My Interview with Steve Poltz -- the best singer/songwriter you've never heard of

Having been born and raised in San Diego, and a huge music lover, I was always a fan of Steve Poltz. His first band The Rugburns had great live performances, and clever songs. The band was filled with other talented San Diego music legends. Poltz ended up being named “San Diego’s Most Influential Artist of the Decade.” He had songs that were rock, folk, punk, satire...hell, he did an album of tunes that were all answering machine messages (appropriately named…
