august 24th. jays vs. yankees. 2 fans.

a jays fan.

and a yankees fan!!!!!

stay tuned for more photos in the coming months. i'm going to jump the gun and say that there will be pictures of a jays hat being burnt to ashes. our jays fan here made a bet that they would finish ahead of the yankees this season (insert howling here). with 25 games left and the jays being 14.5 games out of first where the yankees are...... do the math.

814/917 #2

had quick trip to the new yankee stadium and it was amazing! THOSE are fans. stadium was packed, even against the royals. and that's one huge stadium to fill. totally felt like a playoff game. 85% of the people there had a yankee hat on, or a yankee shirt, or both. amazing. the fans in toronto could learn a thing or 2 from them.

yankee stadium.
the fans.
cop love.

uh, amazing......

if you don't get this, i'm disappointed. if you haven't seen the fantastic mr. fox, you need to take some time in the near future and check it out. one of the best, if not THE best (and SO underrated) movies of last my opinion.

racing dreams

RACING DREAMS is the award winning coming-of-age story about three kids who dream of one day racing in NASCAR.

Academy Award® nominated documentary filmmaker, Marshall Curry, takes us into the lives of Annabeth (11 years old), Josh (12), and Brandon (13) as they compete for the championship in the World Karting Association’s National Series — widely considered the Little League for professional racing.

Clocking speeds of up to 70 mph, these young drivers race their way through the year-long National Series that spawned many of NASCAR’s top drivers.

And at the same time, they navigate the treacherous road between childhood and young adulthood.

In intimate moments of young love and family struggle, this exciting and often humorous story has been fondly described as “part Catcher in the Rye, part Talledega Nights.”

the national at BAM

sorry for yet another national post. can't help it. but this is pretty awesome. they recently performed at BAM (brooklyn academy of music) and the proceeds from the event benefit the red hot organization. there's 11 documentary style webisodes interviewing the band and some behind the scenes action of the show and the filming of their bloodbuzz ohio video. if i've done this right, you should be able to click THIS LINK and it will take you to video one of the youtube page. there should be 11 chapters in the menu on the right. enjoy!

know richie stefanacci

Richie Stefanacci fell in love with inlining at the young age of 6 and while many would have preferred to deny him the joy of inlining, opting instead more traditional sports – he would have none of that. From cement skate parks to indoor parks to Woodward and ultimately to the streets of Philly Richie expressed himself best through inlining, plus snowboarding and surfing.

At a young age he mastered the front flip – over rotated once at Camp Woodward resulting in a crack of his front tooth. Later he mastered the back flip and went on to 360 and grinding. Along the way he met some great inliners – not only great in talent but spirit. Inliners like Stu and Adam took in a kid and taught him all they knew about skating and life during his years at Woodward.

It was this knowledge and spirit that helped him through his 394 challenging days battling Ewing Sarcoma. Ultimately, Richie passed away at the very young age of 14 on June 12th 2007 surrounded by family and friends. But not before assuring that his cancer did not deny him the opportunity of snowboarding and inlining on a few more fantastic runs with family and friends.

Richie was all about denying other people’s unfair rules – denying the rule against inline skating in some places – denying the belief that people with cancer should stop living – Of course the reason people have these ridiculous rules is their false beliefs – they truly do not KNOW the truth – that is why we were so taken with the Denial Clothing philosophy especially their ‘know’ campaign – because once you know about inline skating and especially about Richie Stefanacci there can be no denial of the truth.

We know that through all of Richie’s family and friends especially the ones at Denial that we will some day realize a time when there is NO pediatric cancer. So kids like Richie can inline freely anywhere that their spirits take them and for this there can be no denial……. Mr. Stefanacci
