Liebster Fest

My good friend who write's a blog called " Rantings" nominated me for a Liebster Blog Award. I have to say this is the first time I have ever heard of this award. I'm not sure how I qualify other than writing a blog, but I'll give it a shot. Here are the rules....

 1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves

2.  Answer the 11 questions the person giving you the award has asked you.

3. Create 11 questions for the people you will be giving the award too.

4. Choose 11 people to award and send them a link to your post.

5. Go to their page and tell them.

6. No tag backs.


- I've seen a baseball game at 7 different Major League Baseball Parks. (Oakland Coliseum, AT&T Park, Angel Stadium, Kaufman Stadium in Kansas City, Wrigley Field in Chicago, Old Milwaukee County Stadium, old Tiger Stadium)

- I like to collect/wear baseball hats - I have 16 of the 30 MLB teams. There are about 5 I won't buy though.

- I made the All-Star team in Little League as a pitcher in 1993 - I pitched a 1,2,3 inning, walked twice, and stole home.

- In 1994, I had to get stomach surgery for a rare condition for someone my age - had my gall bladder and appendix removed. Didn't know my appendix was being removed til after I woke up! Haha.

- My favorite actor has been Jim Carrey ever since I saw him in The Mask

- I have one older sister who you probably wouldn't be able to tell is my sister by looking at us.

- I like the smell of brand new tennis balls

- I'm an avid baseball autograph collector - some of my best ones include Nolan Ryan, Rickey Henderson, and others....

- The last girlfriend I had was in 2009. Apply here.

- I own a Blu Ray/VHS combo player - which seems to be rare now as it was only one of its kind. Look how much it goes for now. 

 - The first concert I went to was featuring the bands America and the Beach Boys at the Shoreline Amphitheater. My dad took me.

Here are my answers to Mummbles' questions....

  1. What is your favorite comic book film?   
    I think Avengers has taken this spot - before that it was Dark Knight.
  2. Star Wars Trilogy or Lord of the Rings Trilogy?
    I have never been able to get into Star Wars so Lord Of the Rings wins for me. 
  3. What Film are you most looking forward to in the upcoming years?
and also Dumb and Dumber 2 if they ever do go ahead with making the movie, seems like talks have been on and off. 
 4. What was the first movie that made you love movies?I have no idea to be honest - probably a Disney film though.
5. What sports movie do you like to watch again and again?
The Sandlot
6. If you could just watch one Spielberg movie for the rest of your life, which movie would you choose?
Jurassic Park 
7. Hitchcock or Tarantino?
Slight edge to Tarantino right now but that's because I haven't seen much of Hitchcock's movies...
8. Post and image that reminds you of film -

9. Freddy or Jason....?
Well, my dad's name is Fred so we'll go Freddy.
10. What is your favorite documentary?
This is a tough one as I usually enjoy anything Michael Moore makes but sometimes they're hard to re-watch so I'm gonna go with Dying to Do Letterman which I saw at Cinequest in San Jose last year

11. Have you ever met or have a story about a celebrity?
I've gotten to shake hands with some popular baseball players - to me, they count as celebrities - this year, I got to say hi to All-Star Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers and take a photo with him. That's me on the right with my eyes closed, haha.

Ok, so here are my questions - 

1. In the next 3 years, what is a goal of yours that you see yourself accomplishing?
2. Is math really necessary (Trig, Calculus, etc.) - what do your think personally?
3. If you could meet anyone currently living - or could have met someone while they were still alive, who would it be?
4. Who do you root for between Stanford and Cal?
5.  What is your favorite quote?
6.  Share an Image of Clip that best defines "family" to you.
7. Do you like to dance?
8. Are people who don't like to dance hard for you to get along with at parties and club settings?
9.  What is one of your favorite songs? (or post a clip)
10. Are you a sports fan or could you care less?
11. Is more technology a good or bad thing... or both?

Ok - and these are the people I am tagging:
