What I Done in 2009

Happy New Year.

Here's a month-by-month look at my highlights 2009:

January: Saw AC/DC in Cincinnati -- that's a good way to start off the year...went on my annual ski trip to Snowshoe!

February: Saw Papa Roach, Buckcherry and Avenged Sevenfold in Pikeville, Kentucky...did a lot of wedding preparations like getting the license, painting rooms in my house, tuxes all of that stuff...

March: Got married on the 21st...enjoyed a mini-honeymoon weekend in Columbus...had a great bachelor party...saw Billie Joel and Elton John in Cincinnati (great freaking concert!)...Also, after only being married for like four days, my wife left me to go see Britney Spears in Pittsburgh (because she felt bad she bought me the new Papa Roach CD which came out a few days earlier)...Oh, and how can I forget -- St. Panty's Day!

April: Had the original Guns N Roses and Velvet Revolver bass player Duff McKagan in the studio for a live performance with his band Loaded...Helped play an awesome April Fool's Joke with the station when we said you could no longer smoke in your car in Ashland and in Huntington!

May: Saw Bruce Springsteen in Greensboro and also jumped out of a moving cab later that night...Went to Gatlinburg...

June: Went on the real Honeymoon -- a cruise to Grand Turk and the Bahama's -- it was awesome...Saw the Single A All-Star Baseball game in Charleston...

July: Had a birthday...Went to Hilton Head, S.C. to see my brother-in-law's Marine boot camp graduation...Saw Green Day in Pittsburgh...Hosted the Planet's Miss Rally Real Rock Bikini Contest...Snuck off to Las Vegas at the end of the month with Nate -- what an awesome trip -- we were out their for like 36 hours -- from 8 p.m. Friday to 8 a.m. Sunday and we slept for about five hours the whole weekend, played in a poker tournament, played a lot of craps, blackjack and roulette, enjoyed free drinks from the casinos, and saw MOTLEY CRUE AND GODSMACK, where we ran into Vinny Paul from Pantera, and I am not lying -- I walked by Pamela Anderson...July was awesome!

August: Got home from Vegas (boo!) to see my wife the sickest I had ever seen her -- she was apart of a massive boozefest of a bachelorette party...hosted Molly Hatchet and Blackfoot at Ribfest in Huntington...went to an insane bachelor party, let me just say this Sunday night and a limo -- talk about random awesomeness (and a horrible hangover on Monday)...saw my two-best friends get married...ROCKED Rally on the River with Lex and Terry and about 35,000 people over the weekend...went to Myrtle Beach to try to catch my breath after Rally on the River...Saw Old Crow Medicine Show in Huntington where I took my shirt off for the first time ever at a concert (it was outside, it was raining, and I was drunk)...

September: Marshall football time featuring some killer tailgates...

October: More Marshall Football...Saw Jay-Z in Concert (I know I'm a "rocker," but dude, if you like music -- you'll like his concerts -- it was probably the best concert I saw in 2009!)...Got a sinus infection that I've literally had since October (today is December 29!)...Saw my first ever MMA fight live with Spartan Fighting Championship...Saw the Avett Brothers in Huntington -- really good show...

November: Celebrated the wife's birthday in Gatlinburg...Thanksgiving...Saw the Bengals and the Browns play in Cincinnati...Marshall basketball time!

December: More Marshall basketball...Got a CT Scan on my sinus problem (probably going to have surgery in 2010 on my FACE)...Company Christmas Party at the dog track and casino in Cross Lanes...First Christmas with my new family...Got an XBox 360 and Call of Duty...typed this...wondering what I left out.

Have a safe and happy new year.

Show Some Grace for Three Days Grace: 250+ Hot Wheels and Canned Foods

Craig Williams of Chesapeake came through with his offer to "Show Some Grace for Three Days Grace!" He delivered on his offer of more than 250 Hot Wheels and a case of canned foods! This will definitely make a bunch of kids in the Tri-State happy this Christmas, and will help put some food into some families' bellies! Craig is also happy now because of his killer donation he has tickets to see Three Days Grace and Breaking Benjamin this February in Huntington!
