A Mocker of Soccer

Hola Bitcholas, As a fan of soccer and a Sounders season ticket holder I should be ecstatic about the idea of going to three different games this weekend. Sadly, the Sounders don't figure into it. No, my son, Lil' Pele, has THREE games this weekend. Three. Two on Saturday and one on Sunday. I'm...

You Into Baseball, Hon?

Hola Bitcholas, Heading to the Mariners/ Orioles game tonight at Safeco. No big deal except that I'm wearing my O's gear. I RARELY wear things with logos or anything at work. No real reason for that, but I generally keep that kinda stuff for the weekends. Anyway, today I'm going to the game and...

Heart Burn Breaks You!

Hola, Bitcholas, Today is Monday and it feels that way. Not a bad day, per se, but I've been dragging ass. Went to bed with the hiccups (nothing new) which became heartburn. Again, not uncommon, but no Tums! Turns out that mixing baking soda and water is a good way to kill heartburn. It's also a...

All Kids and No Sleep

Hola Bitcholas, I am f**king tired today. Yep. My daughter started complaining that she didn't feel good on Sunday. She didn't have a temperature AND she has a knack for melodrama, so I just chalked it up to being tired. If you're a parent, then you know that "tired", as it applies to children, can...

Why You Want to Seem Older and Heavier

Hola Bitcholas, First, thank you everyone for the exceptionally kind words regarding our 3000th show. The outpouring was unexpected and very humbling. That said, today was our 3001st show! That's one MORE than 3000 and we got nothin'! Nothin', I say. I mean, if 3000 is a big deal, then certainly...

Seven Inches From The Monday Sun

Hola Bitcholas, Happy Monday and all that. Actually, Mondays don't bother me so much. I should add that I've felt that way even BEFORE I had kids. Well, before kids and after getting into radio. Before radio, I cooked for a living and hated every second of it. Just not my jam. As a result of my...

What's the Adult Equivalent of a Snow Day?

Hola Bitcholas, ​Word has it that my kids are finally going to go back to school tomorrow. I've lost track of how many days they've been off but it's been plenty. The thing that occurred to me today was what snow is in the eyes of a school-aged child. I never really considered it until today, but...

The Noises You NEVER Forget

Hola Bitcholas, Today we talked about 'kids being kids' moments...whether it's kids of your own or you as a kid. The question was inspired by myriad of different stories; 'kid calls 911 for help with homework...'kid calls 911 because he got snow pants for Christmas'... 'kid gets lost in forest for...

Who is Who, What?

Hola Bitcholas, As a parent, there are all manner of small, magical moments you get to enjoy with your kids. Some, you have to manufacture, like taking them to Disney or some comparable bullsh*t. Other times it's a moment when your kid discovers (and appreciates) something YOU enjoy. Case-in-point...

Be Gone, Bodily Demons!

Hola Bitcholas, How was the weekend? I think I spent most of mine on the toilet. OK, that's an overstatement but there was a point yesterday where I 'visited' the toilet 5 times in 30 minutes.​ It was impressive and disturbing all at once. I'm not sure if I'm getting sick, got sick or was expunging...
