The best day of every year

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.

1969-2019

Go Padres!

‘Tis the season

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.

 

‘Tis the season

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

 

‘Tis the Season

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

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:
