Major League Baseball Opening Day.
This is what a national holiday should be.
Every year, like every at bat, is a clean slate with no idea what’s going to happen.
I fell in love with baseball accidentally when my dear friend, and man crush at the time, Clayton took me to my first San Diego Padres game back in 1997. It was a day game and he bought me a field level ticket right behind first base. Our first baseman at the time was his man crush, Ryan Klesko.
At first sight it was the handsome Ryan Klesko’s muscular ass that had my attention. By the end of the game I was in awe that I had lived into my early 30s having never discovered the timing, the preciseness, the skill, the sportsmanship, the timing, the patience, the fun and the sheer luck that is baseball.
I was sold.
Best. Game. Ever.
Today marks my San Diego Padres 50th year as a major league team.
Cheers to 2019!
May you find peace, health, love, joy, prosperity and laughter throughout your coming year.
Fearsome is overcome with so many favorite holiday tunes that tonight he has asked me to post two of his favorites.
We kick it off with Rascal Flatts I’ll be home for Christmas
We continue with the original Santa Baby by Ertha Kitt
Although not exactly an Xmas tune, as a bonus we post the comical Sisters from the classic film White Christmas, this is the full scene including the drag reprise performance by Bing & Danny.
Fearsome remembers watching the very episode of Glee, from whee this clip comes, the night it aired. He swooned. For the first time ever he witnessed two men sing this duet. For both of us it was a fantasy come true.
Not only a fantasy come true but one of the best performances of this classic ever.
Baby It’s Cold Outside – Glee
Fearsome continues his tradition tonight of posting his all time seasonal favorites.
Tonight’s selection is Wishing You a Drag Queen Christmas.
Because? Because you, you deserve to be gorgeous!
🎵With Platform heels so high, you’ll look angels in the eye, and they will sing back up for you oo o ooo!🎶
’Tis the season to continue with Fearsome’s holiday tradition of posting his favorite holiday tunes.
Back again for yet another incredible performance here on Fearsome Beard, we welcome with open arms the Fabulous Babs Levine!
Have a Divine Christmas Darling!
Yes my dearest pogonophiles it’s that time. Time to post a week’s worth of Fearsome’s favorite Christmas tunes and clips.
This year we kick off with that all time favorite classic that Gayla Peevey blessed us with way back in 1953. -I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas –
Pure listening pleasure!
Now that her song is permanently imbedded in your brain, it’s time for a little history from Gayla:
From the talents of SIX13
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours wherever you are.
It’s that time.
What are just a few things I am grateful for?
San Diego Bay
The sun shining through a window
Quality Cotton Sheets
I am grateful for so much more than I can say in this brief post. I’ll just keep being grateful.
Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas
Time to kick off the holiday week!
It’s here. It’s already here.
San Diego celebrates in July. After the other two large cities in our Golden State take the last two weekends in June, San Diego gives everyone a couple week break and then continues the celebrations.
I’ve been celebrating Pride since the first one I ever had the opportunity to attend. That particular pride was Seattle Pride 1990. I have been out of the closet since I was but a teenager however the place I lived had yet to have a pride celebration.
What Pride means to me is simply that we can be and are or authentic selves. In that we respect each other and support each other in living authentic lives. We celebrate and embrace diversity, acceptance, understanding, respect, affirmation, love and freedom.
Pride is, and should always be, a place of safety to simply just be. Just be. Be without judgment, discrimination, hatred and intolerance.
Be authentic. Be real.
Reflecting on the values that I hold about a nation in which I live, I turn to the beginning of it’s founding document.
Excerpt from The Declaration of Independance othe United States of America dated July 4, 1776
May our true values overcome the petty smallness of the selfish.
