Did you know? That the logo on the right was created for the wedding by Nathan utilizing the Our Time/hourglass theme in combination with the first initials of their names.

Baseball Uber Fan

Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday's success or put its failures behind and start over again. That's the way life is, with a new game every day, and that's the way baseball is.

Bob Feller

Baseball has and will always capture my heart in terms of sports affiliations. I grew up playing, watching, reading and analysing every little inch of the great American sport.

From cheering on my hometown Toronto Blue Jays in the early 90s to assuming the cocky intersected NY insgnia of the Yankees as the emblem of my late 90s Twenty-something swagger, baseball has always been a part of the maturation of me as a person and in essence as a developer as well.

Video (on the right) tribute dedicated to the many passionate years my father and I have spent watching Baseball.
