The strangest moments from that eerie, empty Baltimore Orioles game

Nobody seems to realize that the reason there was an empty stadium was part of the riots that were going on in the Baltimore, Maryland area. It is a sad turn of events, that forced Major League Baseball, and the Baltimore Orioles organization to take such measures.

Safety is never more important. Especially after what we learned about 9/11. If if the National Guard, Police, and Security searched everyone, there is still valid threats to the safety of all. I applaud MLB and the Orioles organization for taking such drastic measures.

Hopefully those who are rioting realize that they are not proving anything or doing anything. They are just making things worse. Baseball is called America’s past time for a reason. It is to go enjoy a family game, talk, bond, eat, and enjoy a game of baseball.  Let’s wake up and work together. If we do, this world would be a lot better.

Lauren Hill – Basketball Player #1More4Lauren

Lauren Hill is one of those many stories that you hear that is battling an illness or disease. Rather than be miserable and suffer, she lived every last day to the fullest. Her journey of being a basketball player was amazing. The chances she got in her last months, nobody could accomplish that in four years of College.

Her memory will last for yyears to come, and each year as the team suits up to play, they will think of Lauren and the stuggles she went through. Fighting an illness is not easy for yourself or your family. It is what you make of it, and the support you receive from your family and friends. The support Lauren received from around the world was overwhelming as well.

Here is the introductory video:

Here is the team that moved their game to accommodate Lauren’s wish.

Here is the tribute video CBS Sunday Morning did:

New York Auto Show

This past Friday, I attended the New York International Auto show in New York City. It is a yearly event. It has been about ten years since I last attended the car show. I was going yearly for a while, then it got boring. I am sort of in the market for a new car, so I figured I would get a sense of what is out there.

General Motors (GM) I thought had a really impressive showing. Buick, Chevy, and GMC were at their A game. I didn’t feel Cadillac was there yet, but they too had a presence. I think GM is doing a great job of moving forward since they had so many issues with recalls, and safety concerns.

For most of my life I have driven Fords. I happen to find then reliable. Currently I own a Ford Fusion. Ford too had an impressive display, and they are moving forward with the electric vehicles. They even had a car that talked, and interacted to a kid touching the car. Electric cars wouldn’t work well in the city, since you would have electrical cords running up and down the block.

Buick brought their new convertible the Cascada, and then their concept vehicles the Avenir Concept. Both impressive models. Since the Verano and the Chevy Cruze are similar. Just as the Encore is a twin to the Trax.

All of the car manufactures had “product specialists” which I don’t know if they worked directly for the manufacturer or the car show itself. The GM “product specialists” did a dynamic job in their presentations. The Chevy booth also offered a charging station, which was a plus to me since my cell phone was dying.

Below are some of the cars I took pictures of. I also look a lot of pictures of the wheels (rims) in which some of them were impressive in their design. No more hubcaps or you happen to see very few.
