HELLO MY NAME IS…

With the kids out of the house and his wife leaving him to pursue a late career in ice skating (see: Curveball), Phil Dunphy’s life is in shambles. Though not an alcoholic Phil has taken to going to AA meetings to work out his emotions and to meet some new friends. While there he makes the acquaintance of 3 newly appointed court mandated members of AA: Charlie Kelly, Homer J. Simpson and Al Bundy. Even though they are supposed to be off the sauce, the 3 men constantly go out drinking after every meeting and Phil tags along. After a night of drinking the 4 men stumble down an alley and witness a major crimeboss murdered. They manage to evade being caught and make it to a police station close by. They turn state’s evidence and are place under the care of former Reno, Nevada sheriff Lt. Jim Dangle.

Now in the Witness Protection Program with new identities and new lives, the five men are fishes out of water in the town of Sweetville, Ohio, where they need to avoid being caught by the mob and remember what their new names are. HELLO MY NAME IS… is the newest brain child from the producers of Homeboys in Outer Space and Shasta Mcnasty. Say “HELLO” to the newst pop culture mash-up. Only on FX.

Congrats to Chris Tanski for developing the winning show. Now we eagerly await the opening credit sequence…

Fish and Chip magnate Arthur Treacher was born on this day in 1894. Arthur would have been a cool 116 years young today, had it not been for a likely diet of fried haddock and potato wedges.

Oh Arthur, how we loved your eateries. My fondest memories from childhood trips to Florida include sitting in those bright yellow and brown booths eating my dinner out of a basket.

Be well Arthur.

Just a little over a month ago I started this blog (eww!) as a way to share stories and to try my hand at writing. As I type this we are approaching 5,000 views – way beyond what I ever thought this would turn into.

At the outset, my goal was to recruit friends and others to collaborate with me on a content-rich website. For the last few weeks, we have been working on creating a site that can be a one-stop shop for people like us, people like you!

under..scoop..FIRE! is a site for children of the 80s living in today’s world. Updated on a daily basis – content will include nostalgia, survival, technology, games, entertainment, humor and more. We even recorded a podcast, and plan to keep recording at least one a month, featuring different authors and contributors from the site.

The purpose of this message was two-fold:

First and foremost, to thank you again for reading The Upper Deck. As of Monday I will no longer be posting new content here.

…and secondly, to beg you to click over to under..scoop..FIRE! and add it to your favorites!  Click on the subscribe button on the right side to have fresh content delivered daily! We promise not to disappoint. If you don’t laugh with us, feel free to laugh at us.

What are you waiting for?  Check it out!
