Todd’s Take: Summer Fun On I-90! Some Dude’s Boat Fell Off Its Hitch In the Middle Of the Highway [VIDEO]

On Saturday, after helping to announce the 64th annual Moxee Hop Festival parade, my wife, son and I jumped into our car to head to Seattle to pay homage to Ken Griffey, Jr. as he returned to the Emerald City to have his jersey number officially retired by the club.

We were pressed for time because we wanted to get there as early as possible to get our hands on on of the 20,000 replica Hall of Fame plaques that were being handed out for free to the fans on a first-come, first-served basis.

Then, somebody threw a monkey wrench into our travel plans.

Todd’s Take: My Seven-Day Facebook ‘Marriage Challenge’ — In One Day!

A couple of days ago, a friend of mine "tagged" me to take the seven-day Facebook "Marriage Challenge."

I'm not sure of the rules or object of the game, but I do know this -- there's no way I'll remember to post a pic of me and my wife for an entire week, so I figure I'll do it all at once!

Todd’s Take: Ken Griffey, Jr. Takes Fans Questions After Hall of Fame Induction [VIDEO]

I had a dream of mine come true this weekend when I was able to attend the 2016 National Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Cooperstown, New York to see Mike Piazza and Mariners great Ken Griffey, Jr. enter the Parthenon dedicated to the greats of the game.

While the ceremony itself on Sunday at the Clark Sports Center was certainly a highlight (being spotted by family and friends on the MLB Network's television coverage was cool too!) I think I may cherish the roundtable discussion the two players had with hall-of-fame writer Peter Gammons the following day at Doubleday Field. Unlike their humble and heartfelt speeches the day before, neither player broke down into tears this time as it was a much more casual and lighthearted conversation with many laughs.

Todd’s Take: Happy Father’s Day to My Dad, Don Lyons

My dad's not big on celebrating Father's Day or even his own birthday (which was just about three weeks ago), but since he just turned 71 and, as he says, has more days behind him than ahead, I thought I'd at least give him some love on this here ol' website!
