It’s that time of year again! Fresh cut grass – lined up chalk – venders yelling out “Peanuts, Cracker Jacks” – National Anthem – Planes flying over ballparks – Play Ball being yelled by the Ump.

Your team runs out on to the field and the stadium erupts! Can you feel the magic just piercing your heart? It’s the field, the players, the vendors, the lights, the kids laughing that just makes all the problems in the world go away for 2-3 hrs.

I still believe it is the purest game ever! I love it!

It’s a game of stats and strategies!!

Walt Whitman once said, “I see great things in baseball. It’s our game – the American game. It will take our people out-of-doors, fill them with oxygen, give them a larger physical stoicism. Tend to relieve us from being a nervous, dyspeptic set. Repair these losses, and be a blessing to us.” AMEN!

My team has and will always be the San Diego Padres! Since I was the age of 5, I can remember so many memories from Jack Murphy Stadium, Qualcomm Stadium, and Petco Park. Even going to Dodger Stadium and the new Yankee Stadium in my lifetime have continued to increase my respect and love for the game!

The game teaches patience, hard work, strategy, intelligence, and so many other qualities applied to life!

Today MY San Diego Padres won a game in extra innings, 11 to be exact, Cameron Maybin hit a HR in the top of ninth and tied the ballgame. Then in Top of the 11th inning, he hit a single that scored Chase Headley. Padres won 5-3!

I can’t wait one day to have a son and teach him how to play baseball which is the game of life!


It’s been a long time, I shouldn’t have left you with a dope rhyme to step too!

I’m sorry to my 4 followers! But these last few months have been crazy! Although there have been some major bumps in the road, I am starting to come back from those tough moments. God, family, friends, and faith have got me through and I don’t know where I would be without all those people in my life and the knowledge I have been given.

A few updates: Work with AND1 Live Streetball and we are starting to blow up again! I have a number of duties within the company and I’m stoked!

I do P.R. and Event Consulting for the team that did BYU’s New Spice video. There new YouTube series is working with Antoine Dodson (Hide yo kids, Hide yo wife dude).

Jimmer and the Fredettes aka BYU made it to the Sweet 16 which hadn’t been done since 1981 with Danny Ainge! Jimmer will make the NBA and will be a great sixth man I believe!

I’ve hit about 5 Padres Spring Training games here in Arizona and I LOVE IT!

Continuously on my mind is this lady who I had a crush on back before I graduated at BYU-Idaho. Eventually in my visits back to Rexburg, we finally connected through friends and Facebook! Oh 21st Century dating ahah! Anyways we talked a little last year throughout parts of the year, but for awhile I didnt think she was interested and we both got busy! The last time I went to Rexburg, we had been talking here and there a little more, and so I decided to surprise her again! This time it seems to be moving forward. We haven’t stopped talking the last month and she makes me feel alive! I am really so happy because she is the sweetest, cutest, adorable lady! I really want to do everything I can right, to see where this goes. Leaving Provo Sunday afternoon was tough, and I haven’t felt that way with someone in a long time. This time was different from others!

I feel more connected to who I am and I know what I want out of life! Seeing the recent tragedy of Japan’s earthquake and tsumani, my beloved and dearest Grandma Turner passing on, losing my job, a good friend of my dying in an ATV accident, hearing one of my best friends brother dying in a car accident, and just feeling the need to do better – have all giving me reason to raise my bar and become the son my Heavenly Father needs. I want to share that with someone special who will be there for me through these experiences and I can be there for her experiences. Highs, lows, happiness, and pain!
