Brilliant. Simply brilliant. Learn the words….
I wear a sportcoat quite a bit. Whether its at the office, out in social settings, or to church, it has become habit to bring one with me. They are a utility coat for me – holding my phone, keys, girlfriend stuff, and almost anything else I don’t want to carry in my pants pockets. It’s fair to say that sportcoats have become more acceptable as everyday attire. They dress up the usual button down and jeans look and are a great alternative to a Patagonia fleece in any business casual environment.
Sid Mashburn just released his garment dyed sport jackets, which are a cotton/linen blend. Perfect for summer. After seeing them in person, I could use one in each color… They have a slimmer cut and are just a touch shorter than normal jackets, giving them an updated look that is very versitile. The colors are rich and the jackets have a lightweight feel to them. These will up your A-game this summer.
The 2013 College World Series started on Saturday. I would rank the College World Series up there with any of the BCS games or the March Madness tournament in terms of excitement. The double elimination tournament is outstanding – metal bats, sweat stained hats, and rabid fans. Teams that won regional tournaments, then super-regional tournaments earned one of eight spots in Omaha.

While they are all relatively big-name schools this year, there is no shortage of baseball talent on the field. Who’s your pick? We like the Tarheels…

Happy Father’s Day to my dad, all the other dads, and all the soon to be dads. Enjoy your day today…back to work tomorrow.
If I were to get a Jeep to restore…it would be the Scrambler. Extra room in the trunk gives you more space for friends, dogs, and stuff. Why not?
