Comment on Game 7 of the 2019 World Series: A Live Blog by Rob Ford http://blog.jeffnyveen.com/game-7-of-the-2019-world-series-a-live-blog/#comment-3967 Fri, 01 Nov 2019 00:01:41 +0000 http://blog.jeffnyveen.com/?p=2387#comment-3967 25 years ago… opening day 1994… you and I sat in the Astrodome watching the ‘Stros battle your Expos. It would be the first of many, many baseball games we would, and will, attend together. That season… destroyed by The Strike… I truly believe, would’ve ended with the Expos holding up the trophy. The American National Pastime’s championship banner would have been hoisted in Canada for the third straight year. But greed got in the way. That team would soon be dismantled. All those players becoming stars for other franchises… and ten years after that, the franchise itself would belong to another city… in another country. Funny though… that you end up in DC about that same time.
The only thing that would’ve made it better, is if I could have joined you for last night’s viewing party… watching the ‘Stros, once again, battling your team. But still… congrats my friend. You’ve waited a long time for this. YOUR team won it all. The jerseys may say Nationals… but the blood is still type-Expo.

TO THE 2019 WORLD CHAMPION… WASHINGTON EXPOS!!!!

I’m trying to get in touch with direct descendants of Sem Nijveen, particularly his son Micha.
Do you have an email address? I’m a fan of Sem’s work and I have a request to make.
Hope you can help.

I was preparing to turn right out onto the road, checking it out to my left and saw NOTHING coming. So, I turn out and about 6 seconds later this road ragger is on my ass, in my blind spot tails me all the way to the 4 lane busy intersection and then gets in the right hand turn lane, stops next to my SUV. I hollered out window U NEED TO BACK OFF LOUIE!, He calls “me” a b-tch, I then exercised my constitutional right to flip him the upside down bird and yell back Hey I Got Your B-itch Right Here!! He drove off.

Jonathan posted your Claire Danes blog on FB.
Coincidentally I’m visiting them & just brought Jenn the Feb 2017 issue of Bazaar with Claire Danes on the cover!
Hope all’s well.

You’re such a badass writer!

It’s awesome that you’re the second generation of your last name. I am too, since Pait was the name given to my dad even though it was neither my grandmother or grandfather’s last name. Any other Pait you would meet in Texas will definitely have my DNA! I like having a unique name, even though there are always red lines under it every time i type it..

It’s amazing how you were able to find so much detail about your heritage. I used to think learning anything about my dad’s side of the family was a lost cause. But not anymore 🙂

It’ll be repaired with VW factory parts and should be ready in two weeks!
