Post-Christmas Penguins


Philadelphia Phantoms @ Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins
First Union Arena - December 26, 2002
My boss gave me tickets to see the Baby Pens game in Wilkes-Barre for the day after Christmas.  If they were playing any other team, I would have been rooting for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, but the Phantoms are the AHL team for the Flyers, and I can't root against a Philadelphia team.  The Phantoms won in overtime, 4-3.

Learning To Catch The Golden Snitch

Harry Potter: Nimbus 2000 Broom
Mattel (2001)
Parents have discovered a problem with a vibrating children's toy that is designed to be straddled and sat on.  Evidently, it's been giving their daughters a magical experience as their re-enact the scenes in Harry Potter & The Sorcerer's Stone.

He's Back


Eric Bischoff

It's amazing how things can change in just a few short years.  Imagine sending this photo through a time warp to a wrestling fan in 1997.

Ahmad's Persian Cuisine


Ahmad's Persian Cuisine
Old Market - Omaha, NE
I've never had Persian food before, but we stopped here for dinner and it was outstanding.  I didn't have my camera on me, so these photos are from the Lincoln Star Journal.

Ticket To Election Night


Jesse Ventura / Mae Schunk Campaign
Election Night Party Invitation (1998)
One last piece of Jesse Ventura governor ephemera I have to share is this invitation to his party on election night in 1998.  They mailed it out to Pennsylvania.  I wish I could have gone - bet it was one hell of a night.

The Jesse Ventura Campaign

Jesse Ventura
Campaign Pamphlet (1998)
Earlier today, The Body announced that he wouldn't run for re-election as governor of Minnesota.  I don't blame him a bit, but it's a shame.  The country needs leaders like Ventura who don't bow down to the two major political parties.

Dad and I ordered t-shirts and bumper stickers from his campaign in '98 and this pamphlet was in the package.
