Mariners and Blue Jays Start Season 0-5

The Mariners and Blue Jays have started the new Major League Baseball season a combined 0 and 5.

Fortunately, Janelle and I (and Boris) have had a much better week so far. The launch of Major League Advertising went much better than 0-5. We started raggedy with a problem that didn’t credit references correctly, but that was corrected fairly quickly. We are still working to make sure that people get credited for their sign ups.

Otherwise, it has just mostly been fun. If you can call intense stress fun. Thanks to a whole lot of help and good vibes given to us by a whole bunch of people, the experience has been great. Way more fun that Janelle (Blue Jays) and I (Mariners) have been having trash talking our teams.

Which brings me to our third teammate. Boris says he only knows one thing about baseball “There is no crying in Baseball” but he darn sure knows coding and design. Our resident genius has bailed us out several times already.

The M’s and Jays might be shuffling so far, but the MLA team is alive and well and planning a long term future. Thanks for being part of the ride!

Life is Good

I’ve got to admit. Life is pretty darn good for me right now.

I am right this minute smoking the best cigar I’ve ever owned (A Cohiba Cuban, smuggled in by a friend).

I spent the weekend riding and in company with good friends.

Gonzaga University is playing for the NCAA Championship tonight. Who would have thought that a teeny Jesuit University from Spokane, WA would say that?

THE Chicago Blackhawks have clinched the best record in the Western Conference and home ice at least until the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Seattle Mariners start their run to the World Series (you read it here first) today.

And we are launching Major League Advertising today. We being Janelle Pineau, Boris Petricevic and myself. It is essentially a Traffic Exchange with a baseball game integrated inside. We like to think that we have a slightly different take on the genre, geared toward our advertisers and associates.

It’s been a long, slow journey. We started in September and are rushing to get it ready as I write this. We know it will never be finished, and we have BIG plans for the future. To finally spring it on you all is a huge deal. That which does not kill us can only make us stronger.

Everybody should have people to work with like Boris and Janelle. Friends, of course, but each with a skill set and dedication that are absolutely terrific. It has been sometimes frustrating, sometimes crazy but having a team like this is simply a reward all by itself.

The proof is in the pudding, and we are pretty proud of ours. Why not mosey over to Major League Advertising and take a look. It’s free to join and participate,

Go Zags.

Fear the Blackhawks.

Mariners Uber Alles.
