Blue Jackets win first ever playoff game!

Final: Columbus 4 Pittsburgh 3 (2 OT) Blue Jackets win in double OT 
"You always dream about being the hero in overtime," Calvert said. "We battled for it and it didn't come easy. We were down a couple goals at different times. The penalty kill was great when it had to be and it's just a great feeling right now."

The winner!



What the heck has happened to the Indiana Pacers?
They got embarrassed and booed off the court Saturday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, losing Game 1 to Atlanta 101-93. 

Way to go Peyton!

Peyton won 1st place in Saturday's Earth Day recycled costume contest at Sawyer Point. She created an iPod costume with items found around the house. 1st place was $100! Peyton's partner was unable to show up, so Casey was a last minute fill-in, holding her sign up on the state. He's asking for a tip for his work. Good luck with that.

Captain America!

Saturday was Father/Daughter date day. Peyton picked Captain America to see.
It was excellent. I'll admit, I'm not a huge super hero guy, but this is a cool movie.
The special effects are spectacular.

ESPN 30 for 30: The Bad Boys
Whether you like the NBA or not, whether you liked the Detroit Pistons or not, this documentary is a masterpiece. I watched it with Casey.  Spectacular.


Houston Astros Double-A prospect OF Delino DeShields Jr. was hit in the face by a pitch Friday night. His father, Delino DeShields Sr., is the Double-A manager for the Reds at Pensacola.
