I'm coming down from my sugar high and I just realized that I've kept the streak alive for 8 years running now. For the 8th consecutive year, I've sat down with a bowl of candy and waited, and waited and waited. Thats right, the average # of Trick or Treaters for the past 8 years is 0.0000000. This year I thought it was going to be a little different because the wife and I moved to a new neighborhood back in May. Theres even kids that live on the next street over. My wife even went to the trouble of making little treat bags up with the small pouches of Sour Patch Kids, Swedish Fish and "Jacks and Bats" pretzels. All of it for naught! For some reason, in our new neighborhood, on any given night, all of the houses are lit up like the 4th of july. Everything was dark tonight except for our house. We are usually the ones with all the lights off because we don't like wasting electricity and the racoons and possums can see in the dark just fine!
So now that I've done my little Halloween rant (candy-induced), I'm going to show off the 3 highlights of a Group Break that Tim over at Home of the Toddfather held a few weeks ago. I wasn't quick enough to grab the Orioles so I picked the Mariners and A's to maximize my chance at some hits from the Topps Chrome boxes. GOOD CHOICE!
Thanks Tim for holding and awesome Group Break!
Speaking of Group Breaks! My own group break will be kicking off tomorrow evening. Stay tuned over the next few days to see the results!
