1987 Topps Baseball Card Template

Size 10"x14"

A few years ago, I made this template for my companies Softball team. I chose one of my favorite baseball card styles,1987 Topps baseball card.  I don’t know what it is about the 1987 Topps cards, maybe its the wood grain, maybe its the interesting slogans, maybe its the fact that have boxes upon boxes of these cards from when i was a kid.   Whatever the reason is, i worked on the template, and did my best to make it look as close to the originals.  The template is 10″x14″ and can easily be scaled down to a normal baseball size card.  I found that if i made it larger, I had more control over the end result, plus i can make bigger images to send people.  Unfortunately I never got around to making the back side of the card.

Parenting Fail: The Pillow Monster!

Child being suffocated by pillows.

Child being suffocated by pillows.

So yesterday I was at Wal-Mart, (seems like any time I see something stupid it is at that place… wonder why) I’m standing on line waiting to pay for my goods, and I see this woman pull up on the line next to me, with what appeared to be a cart full of pillows. I thought to myself, “Maybe she likes pillows, who am I to judge.” About 5 min into the wait, I notice that the pillows in the cart were moving, yet no one that I could see was touching them. Then from behind the pillows emerged a young child gasping for air. That’s when I quickly snapped a picture with my trusty blackberry. Shortly after I snapped the picture, the father and son arrived, they were a Hasidic Jewish Family, and then suddenly everything made sense.

Stumble Upon!

So as many of my friends know, I have been using the stumbleupon addon to find new and interesting sites.  It is probably one of the greatest addons that I have seen for IE/FireFox, in a long time.  Basically you download this tool bar (optional and configurable), configure your account with categories you would like to see, (ei: Comics, Computers, Linux, Comedy)  i keep meaning on posting great links i find with this tool, but i continue to forget.  So while im here late at work, i will post whatever links i stumble below, so you can get an idea of the awesome.  I wont lie, sometimes you find junk, but most of the time you find something entertaining.  I have spent a few nights up late telling myself just one more stumble for hours.

This great tool can be found at : http://www.stumbleupon.com/

Here are some stumbles tonight to wet your taste buds:
