First Blog Entry

Yankee fans- this is Matt Cusick, infielder for the Tampa Yankees.  I am taking over for Bradley Suttle’s post, who did a great job in spring training.  You may or may not have heard of me, since I am relatively new to the Yankees.  I was originally drafted by the Houston Astros in 2007 out of USC (the real one not South Carolina!)  Last August, at the trade deadline, I was sent to the Yankees in exchange for pitcher Latroy Hawkins.

We are about one month into the season, and our team has hit its first major speed bump.  We all know that the season is a long grind, and the key to being successful is working hard and trying to limit the inevitable tough times.  Everyone on the team is battling through this, and I am confident that things will get better in no time.

Our team chemistry is great.  We have the typical jokesters on the team who keep the clubhouse fun and loose.  Most of the guys, including myself, play cards in the clubhouse to help pass the down time.  I have already learned some new games like Golf, Rummy, and Yuker. 

Enough about baseball.  My roommates, Eric Fryer and Tommy Baldridge, love cooking and barbequing after games.  It gets tough though because we are so hungry after the game and don’t have the patience for lengthy recipes.  If you guys have any good recipes that are quick and easy, please send them over!  We would greatly appreciate it. 

I also love country music.  Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Sugarland, and Jason Aldean are some of my favorites.  My roommates and I are trying to get concert tickets for one of our off days. 

I am also a huge fan of the TV show “The Office”.  In fact, a huge fan is an understatement.  I cannot get enough of Michael and Dwight.  I also watch Seinfeld, Family Guy, Entourage, Two and a Half Men, and King of Queens on a regular basis. 

Well, that’s all I got for today.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask, and I will do my best to answer them all next week.  Until next time, go Yanks!

If you’re looking for easy recipes, try ‘A Man, A Can and a Plan’ or ‘A Man, A Can and a Microwave’. They got me through my first years of college with easy, quick and filling meals. They even have dessert sections and the pages are coated so you can wipe them off if you spill anything. They’ve got some interesting ones – there’s a whole section on beer- based recipes – but they’re quick.
Also, try FoodNetwork.com. They’ve got tons and tons of quick recipes.
Good luck in the kitchen and on the field 🙂

p.s. – If you’re a country music fan and in Tampa, have you been to the Dallas Bull?? Its pretty fun especially on Thursday nights!!
