Brooklyn's Best Friend

So, there's this thing called Facebook.  Have you heard of it?  Of course you have.  Unless your name is Kevin Mahoney, you already have a Facebook account, have connected with old classmates, ex-girlfriends, former teachers, childhood neighbors, that kid you used to play football with, and tons of people you barely remember or tried to forget.  Everyone in the world is on Facebook.  Except Kevin Mahoney.

For those of you out there who may be unfamiliar (Kevin Mahoney), here's how it works: You set up a home page, post information about yourself, and then look for "friends."  Or they look for you.  "Friends" are what make the world of Facebook go 'round.  Some people have thousands of FB "friends" (Katie, Brandy), and others keep a tight circle (Kevin Mahoney, 0).

In general, though (unless you're Kevin Mahoney), the more "friends" you have, the better.  It means more info and invites coming your way, and it gives you a bigger audience for those times you want to share your thoughts.

Enough with the tutorial, already.  Here's where the Cyclones come in.

With our new contest, titled "Brooklyn's Best Friend," having the most FB "friends" can also mean winning great prizes, like $100 in Cyclones Cash, a $500 donation to your favorite charity, lunch with Cyclones players, 50 Field Box Seats to a game in which you'll be honored, and -- best of all -- your own Cyclones baseball card and your own Cyclones-designed bobblehead!

It's an exciting social-networking experiment that helps us spread the word about Cyclones baseball, and helps you get once-in-a-lifetime swag!

Check out the contest, and get going!  It officially gets underway on Monday, July 26th!

Start telling everyone you know that you want to become "Brooklyn's Best Friend," and you need their help to do it.  

Unless, of course, you're Kevin Mahoney.

TNA Lives Up To Its Name

Wow! They don't call it Total Nonstop Action for nothing!

The TNA Live! show on Friday night was awesome! I haven't followed wrestling for a while, but I think I might be officially back into it after watching tonight's show. High-flying, hard-hitting, non-stop action all night long.

Team 3D smashed a guy through a table, Jeff Hardy tossed his body around with reckless abandon, Kurt Angle showed off the skills that make him a gold medalist, and an old favorite of mine, Rob Van Dam, capped the night off by defending his heavyweight belt!

Almost 5,500 rabid Brooklyn fans charged up the whole ballpark, and made it the biggest U.S. show in TNA's eight-year history!

Check out some pictures:

Tonight is the highly-anticipated Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling event at MCU Park!  It's going to be awesome -- one of the largest outdoor crowds ever for a TNA event!

Baby Alexa and I snuck into the ring before the gates opened to settle some differences:

My size, stength, and pure athleticism had her beat, but the ref was knocked unconscious and couldn't get the three count.  Then she blatantly and illegally used the ropes to choke me out.  The Iceman would be proud; I never tapped out...but I did pass out from the pain.  When I woke up, she had her hand raised and was awarded the belt!  A complete miscarriage of justice!

The real action begins in a few hours!  More pics to come...
