Not sports related, but please fund this film I’m promoting. It’s gonna be incredible and you’ll be my favorite person ever.
No more fancave
I totally forgot to write in this sports blog about the end of my sports dream job with the MLB FanCave.
I got eliminated. It’s a long story. It was a great experience. I’m sorry to see it end.
Now I really want to be on TV as a host or actor in some capacity. I did it ever so briefly through the MLB FanCave and it just makes sense in my brain. I was extremely comfortable on camera, like when married couples meet for the first time - they just “know” they’re meant to be together.
I just know I’m supposed to be on camera. To have done it so briefly with the FanCave was a bit of a tease, but hopefully I’ll return to film.
In the meantime, Sox are in first place. Bruins are in the Stanley Cup finals. Sports are friggin awesome still - i realize I dont have to be in a cave to enjoy baseball.
I’ll also do radio.
My Mother’s Day Trivia Video

The Events of Yesterday
Yesterday started off really well. I wake up and head to the MLB FanCave – the place that allows me to have the greatest life I ever could imagine.
Yesterday is Jackie Robinson Day - A day where we celebrate equality, courage, and braveness. Yesterday is Patriot’s Day - A day where Bostonians celebrate America, freedom, and independence. Yesterday was the earliest game of the baseball season. The Tampa Bay Rays were in town this year to fight against the Boston Red Sox, who are off to their best start in 6 years. Yesterday was the Boston Marathon. Those running the marathon pledged money for charities to better the lives of others. Yesterday was good!
Mike Napoli hits a wall-ball double off the monster to give the Sox a win in the bottom of the 9th – (an event I seriously predicted 3 pitches before it happened). Immediately after the game, the rest of the FanCave Dwellers, most donning our team’s respective “42” jersey, had enough time between games to go see the film “42”. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day all around. Which leads me to ask…
Yesterday of all days? To the person who set the bomb… really?! YESTERDAY?!
What boggles my mind is the fact that these people who choose to take our lives simply for their own selfish means seriously have learned nothing from war, nor care to evolve as humans.
Do these people not understand that after 9/11, America was at its most powerful, banded together and proud to fight against anyone who tried to take what we have away? On PATRIOT’S DAY their going to attack the town that is representing America’s values - on the day the country celebrates Jackie Robinson, a man who fought for EQUALITY?
Does that make sense? No. Sadly it doesn’t. The people who blow up bombs are dumb. So what now?
I, for one, have a job to do. I have to watch baseball. I have to watch every baseball game from here until I’m told I can’t anymore. And that’s amazing. You don’t have to like baseball. You don’t have to like sports. But you have to love the fact that we come together through a game that is America’s Pastime.
I cannot sit here and write about baseball saving lives better than those who wrote about it after 9/11, and I’m not going to try. I will say, however, that this feeling of pride in the game has never been more powerful to me now that I’m lucky enough to experience it first hand in the FanCave.
A fellow Cave Dweller just asked if he should put the games on. Hell yes. Let’s watch baseball. Let’s remember that we get to do crazy stuff like this whenever we want. Cuz this is ‘Murrica.
One thing is for sure, I’ve never been more proud to have the Boston “B” tattooed on my sleeve. Boston is resilient, powerful, badass, and hardcore. I’ll be listening to BANE all week.
“We are not awarded bones simply to weigh down our graves.”
RI Local Sports reporting did a short segment speaking to how I’m in the FanCave.
Day 4? - I’m not sure anymore
As it turns out, this blog will NOT be my official MLB FanCave blog - it’s going to continue as my sports blog, but any content I create for or about the MLB FanCave directly will be available at
From there, you can see my bio, read any blogs I’ve written, or any videos I’m in/create.
Anything that is not conducive to the FanCave site, for whatever reason, will be posted here.
With that said, I am going to focus far more on the FanCave blog, since that’s essentially my job to do, but please continue to read and share all of my postings, as they’ll be fun and insightful regardless of which website it’s on.
You’re all beautiful, wonderful people.
OH! And if you’re in RI with access to NBC 10, I’ll be on the 6pm newscast during the sports segment. Thanks!

Day 3 - Orientation/Media Day
I’m still confusing myself over which day I’m writing about. The day previous? The day to come? I hurt my brain.
Yesterday’s orientation meeting was a joy. Lots of great information, clarification, and excitement towards what it is we’ll be doing exactly. And boy oh boy, does MLB have strict licensing policies - sorry Chowdaheads!
I find everyone we’re going to be working with sincerely wonderful and kind individuals who truly love their job. Golly gee whiz I wanna work here!
One big thing I’ve learned, is that this blog is more of my personal blog for MLB, and any official MLB content I’m officially submitting will be on the FanCave blogsite. Not to say this blog isn’t worth reading anymore - it still is - it’s just not going to be the FanCave content I’ve been hired to create. It’s more of a personal way of reaching out to my personal fanbase. Either way, I’m sure you’ll see everything I do, cuz you share and I share and we all share!!
Today is media day. Lots of pictures, cameras, videos, tours, talking, and looking cute. I’ll be wearing my Yaz shirt with a hat.

Day 2 - Za, Jokes, and Laughs
I wonder if these posts are best written after I’ve experienced the day I’ll be writing about, or the morning after. Let’s go with morning after for now.
Oh man! We’re all here and loving our lives! It’s like we never skipped a beat, after the #fancave9 all reunited for the first time since Arizona. With the exception of Ben, who I’ve seen since Spring Training, this is the first time I’ve seen Aaron, Alex, Danny, Marcus, Mina, April, and Travis. I missed these ugly people.
Due to staying in the (beautiful) Marriot in Midtown for the first week, I met up with Travis and Aaron first. We then met up with #Fancave30 finalist Bryan Mapes, who was here to do a fantasy draft with Travis later that night (so they say.) Aaron’s hatred of touristy things was juxtaposed by his intense appreciation of Grand Central Station. Adorbs!
We then got PIZZA!!!! WOAAAHH!H!!!
The last person to join the group was Alex, who had a late flight. I entered the first official vine of my new hit show “FANPRANKED!” and got Alex GOOD! (https://vine.co/v/bDFbFJZV9l6)
Yesterday was really just a day to get to know each other in a no-strings, no-pressure situation. We all went out to a bar, told great stories about scary exes and awful dates, and legitimately bonded immediately.
Today is our orientation. I look forward to what wacky, hilarious shindigs and professional itinerary-following comes my way.
