First Pitches

In this world, you have goals and dreams growing up you wish to one day accomplish. Going to a baseball game and throwing out the first pitch was always a dream of mine. I have yet to get to throw one out at a Major League Baseball game, but have had the honor of throwing out a first pitch at two... Read More

MLB at the Little League World Series

The Little League World Series is a special event and like most kids who grew up playing baseball, I always wanted to play in it. I grew up playing baseball for my school St.Joseph's in Beltsville Maryland, but also grew up playing for my city's little league. Though, our little league program was... Read More

Ted's Blog: Baseball Fights

Over the weekend, people had cook outs and watch baseball because it is Memorial Day weekend and that is what Americans do.

Ted's Blog: Still Watching the NHL Playoffs

I am a Washington Capitals fan, as I have blogged about in the past, but with them out of the playoffs I am still watching (and now cheering for) the Nashville Predators.

See, in my job I am very lucky... Read More

Ted's Blog: NBA Playoffs: Game 7

One of the great thing in sports is game seven in any playoff series. In football, we get used to the 'one and done' way of things. In the playoffs, you win and advance in the series. In baseball, hockey and basketball though it is always a series and when it comes to a winner-take-all game seven... Read More

Ted's Blog: NHL Fever

This blog is really just to say how fired up I am about the NHL playoffs! And the Washington Capitals have a chance to undo so much pain at the hands of the Pittsburg Penguins.

Ted's Blog: NHL Playoffs

This past week, the National Hockey League started its post season with the first round of playoffs.

Ted's Blog: UFC and DC
