Congratulations Orlando Magic!!!

31 May

Your 2009 Eastern Conference Champions!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would like to apologize to the fans in Cleveland for having some of the worst sports teams ever. However, they at least don’t have to drive hours to see NFL games like we do in Orlando.

GO MAGIC!!

18 May

I would like to take this oppurtunity to congratulate the Orlando Magic on their big game 7 win last night! They knocked off the defending NBA champions!

Next up is Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. I’m sure the NBA would LOVE to see Lebron vs Kobe in the finals (since that is what they already have built their ad campaign around) but hopefully the Magic can upset the apple cart a little!!!

GO MAGIC!!!

A Sad, Sad Day!

16 Dec

Monday was not a good day in my life. First I wake up early and drive over to the blood center to donate some platelets and I fail miserably. Ok, so I didn’t really “fail” it was more like the tech used the wrong arm because it was easier and then stuck me too deep. Either way, I get to try again next Monday and will be using my left arm! I DID however get the goodies associated with donating even though none of my blood actually will make it to anyone.

Then I get home to learn officially that last night the AFL (Arena Football League) has suspended the 2009 season. They are going to try to “reorganize” and play in 2010, but we know how well that went for the USFL with Donald Trump!

My thoughts and prayers go out to all the families of coaches, players and support staff who appear to be out of a job. I also pray that the league, and the Orlando Predators, will be able to return in 2010. Not only have they lost the momentum of 22 straight seasons, but in 2010 they will be competing against the upcoming United Football League, which will be an outdoor league with a franchise in Orlando!

R.I.P. – Arena Football League and Orlando Predators may you not join the likes of the Orlando Renegades, Orlando Thunder and Orlando Rage.

Isn't she cute?

Some of you may know that on Friday I went to Sea World Orlando with my parents and my mom’s dental office, Verardi Dental (free plug!). We got an Elite Adventure Tour (or at least that’s what I think it was called) and it was a blast! Below is picture heavy recap of what we got to do!

Great Orlando Wheel UPDATE!

29 Jun

So, the Great Orlando Wheel that I spoke of in my previous post is now official! It is said to be opening in 2010. The real reason I am updating is to show you this photo of its exact location and a video talking about this MASSIVE Ferris wheel. First a still shot:

 Great Orlando Wheel

 The very large (wide not tall) building just above the wheel is the West Concourse of the Orange County Convention Center (where I work). The road in the upper left is I4 and the overpass you see is the end of the Bee Line Beach Line (I hate that name) lets just call it the 528.

And now a video:

Great Orlando Wheel

So this isn’t new but it was new to me. The Great Wheel Corparation has purchased a large chunk of land near the Orange County Convention Center to build a 400+ foot tall Ferris wheel type thing! Fully enclosed and air conditioned means it will be very similar to the London Eye. In fact, according to this article about the purchase The Great Wheel Corp was founded by members of the team that built the London Eye. Continue reading
