Yes it’s true. He told me himself, the legendary Captain America. This past week I took a vacation to Universal Studios in Florida.

An article by posted on January 29, 2009

I love music. As I’m sure many of you can agree, there are poignant moments in our lives when we can not only remember what was happening, but also be able to put a song to it. Case in point, 1988 NLCS. Mets vs. Dodgers. The two teams traded punches back and forth until Game 7 […]
