Joseph Has Owned His Grey Penguins Shirt For Four Years Now!

For just over four years now, I have owned a very classy Penguins T-shirt.  The shirt is grey … and, on the afternoon of May 9, 2016, I bought a grey Pittsburgh Penguins T-shirt at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx.  Not long after I bought my shirt, I successfully talked my friend, Chuck Lazzini, into buying that grey Penguins T-shirt at the same store.  For four years, we have worn the shirts with class … and we have worn them with jeans, cargo shorts, gym pants and even gym shorts.

I have owned my DBZ T-shirt for one year!

For just over one year now, I have owned my “Dragon Ball Z” T-shirt.  I really like this shirt a lot … and I have worn it several times over the past year.  I got it last year for my 33rd birthday.  My neighbor and friend, Michael Spicer, got it for me for my 33rd birthday last year … and I would like to thank him for getting me a classy shirt in 2019.  This is one of the best shirts I have ever owned.

I hope you guys like this Dragon Ball Z T-shirt as much as I do.  I will continue to wear it many more times in the future.  Thank you, Michael Spicer, for allowing me to have a fantastic T-shirt like this Dragon Ball Z T-shirt.

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: My green and yellow Brasil jacket

Today, I would like to talk about one of the first blog posts that I ever wrote on my blog.  I wrote my seventh blog post down on September 7, 2014 … and it is entitled “My green and yellow Brasil jacket.”  In the post, I talked about my green and yellow Brasil jacket, which I purchased at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx back in February of 2014.  I showed you both sides of my jacket in the blog post.  I also bought one for my cousin and friend, Shane Trylko.  He likes his jacket as much as I like mine.  These jackets are our “friendship jackets.”  I was inspired to write this blog post because I wanted to show you guys a fantastic jacket.

Last March, I was able to revisit that blog post as my blog was celebrating its fifth year.

Before I show you the link to the blog post, I would like you to see me and Shane wearing this green and yellow Brasil jacket in some photos.

Here’s the link to the blog post …

Happy birthday, Justin McKean!

Today, I would like to wish a very classy person named Justin McKean a happy birthday today.  On January 23, 2007, he was one of three substitute teachers that I had while I was finishing up my time at South Fayette High School … and we have been terrific friends for 13 years now.  He is one of the classiest people I have ever known … and he is able to be a casual and a classy dresser as well.  I sometimes get ideas for my wardrobe from him.  He is casual and classy.  I have bumped into Justin several times over the past 13 years … and, in July of 2016, I was able to snap a selfie with Justin at McSummerfest … and, that evening, we both had our white 2016 Stanley Cup Champions T-shirts on.

So, again, I would like to say that Justin McKean is a very classy friend … and I would like to thank him for allowing me to talk about him in some of my blog posts over the past 5 1/2 years, including my 1,000th blog post.  Happy birthday, Justin!

Joseph Still Has A Classy Chaps Button-Down Shirt One Year Later!

I have owned my plaid long-sleeve button-down shirt from Chaps for just over one year … and my uncle, Thomas Papakie, has one as well.  The shirt has several colors on it, including white, blue, pink and purple.  There is a front pocket on the shirt … and the Chaps logo is easily visible on the pocket.  I bought the shirts for me and Thomas at T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods in Bridgeville last March.  We both like these shirts a lot … and we have worn them several times since I bought them last year.

On March 20, 2019, me and my uncle, Thomas Papakie, wore our plaid long-sleeved button-down shirts with class in my “computer room.” The shirts go nicely with jeans, shorts and dress pants … and they may sometimes go with lounge pants also.

As you can see here, me and Thomas both like our plaid Chaps button-down shirts a lot.  As I wrap up the blog post, I would like you to see me and him wearing our shirts from last March until the present day.

Derek Papakie Turns 30 Today!

Today, I would like to wish my cousin, Derek Papakie, a happy 30th birthday.  Derek is one of the classiest people I have ever known.  He is both a fantastic friend and a terrific cousin … and he has been a terrific father since last July.

Now, in the first half of the 2010s, Derek and I were “twinning” a lot.  We would wear matching T-shirts, matching jackets, matching sandals, matching sports jerseys, matching hats and even matching polo shirts.

So, today, I would like to say “happy 30th birthday” to Derek Papakie.  Happy 30th birthday, Derek!

Joseph is still “super” three years later!

Three years ago today, I got my grey Superman T-shirt … and I’ve worn it many times over the past three years.  I usually wear it with blue jeans and nice shorts, but I may have worn it with dress pants and white jeans as well.  No matter how I wear it, I always wear it with class.  I may wear it with sweatpants or gym shorts in the future.

Me, and my neighbor, Michael Spicer, have worn our grey Superman shirts many times over the past three years.

Thomas Papakie, who is one of my uncles, was able to wear the grey Superman T-shirt with me back in December of 2018.  We both wore them with class back then.

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: Joseph’s new green lacrosse pullover top

In February of 2018, I wrote a blog post entitled “Joseph’s new green lacrosse pullover top.”  In it, I talked about my green lacrosse pullover, which is from Holloway.  I wrote the post just days after I got my top in the mail.  Now, I had given my computer a break for a few days after I got my top, so I had to wait until February 4, 2018, to talk about the top in a post.  I have worn it many times since I got my top … and I thanked Chuck Lazzini for allowing me to have that top.  We both got our tops in the mail at around the same time.  I still like my top today.

Last June, I was able to revisit the blog post as I was preparing to celebrate my blog’s fifth anniversary.

Here’s the link to the blog post …

I have owned my green lacrosse pullover for two years!

Two years ago, I got my green South Fayette Lions Lacrosse pullover, which is from Holloway, in the mail.  I really like it … and I’ve worn it several times since I got it.  My friend, Chuck Lazzini, also his this top … and, on two occasions, we have worn them together in various places in South Fayette.  We wore them to South Fayette Fire Hall in February of last year … and we wore them to South Fayette Stadium in May of last year.  This top is full of class … and I will continue to wear it in the future.

IMG_20190504_105135124_HDR
On May 4, 2019, while I was watching South Fayette’s lacrosse team play a game at South Fayette Stadium, I bumped into Dom Lazzini, who is the son of one of this blog’s followers, Chuck Lazzini. Dom played for South Fayette’s lacrosse teams in the past and now he plays for Mount Union’s lacrosse team, which is located in Ohio. Chuck and I both had our green lacrosse pullovers on while we were at the game. I wore my Mount Union shirt underneath of my green top and Chuck wore his Mount Union hat.

As I prepare to wrap up today’s blog post, I would like to give a special thanks to Chuck for allowing us to have a classy top like the green South Fayette Lacrosse pullover.  May this top continue to give us class for years to come.

My friend, Shane Trylko, Is Full Of Class!

In March of 2014, I was able to become a true friend of Shane Trylko’s.  Before that, we may have been cousins or something like that, but for nearly six years now, we have been both cousins and friends.  I was able to bump into him in person in 2014 at least twice.  I bumped into him here at my house in March of 2014 … and then, five months later, I bumped into him again at my uncle’s 50th birthday party.  That would be Nicholas Papakie, Jr., of course.

Now, whenever I first became Shane’s friend in March of 2014, I was able to give him a rather classy jacket.  I had purchased this jacket at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx a few days earlier … and it was the subject of one of my first blog posts ever.  I wrote it back in September of 2014.  Now, that jacket would be the green and yellow Brasil jacket.  I also bought that jacket for myself … and, whenever Shane visited us at my home, I gave him his jacket … and he liked it as much as I do.  The green and yellow Brasil jackets became our “friendship jackets” since we were both terrific friends.

After I left Fella’s Barber Shop in McDonald on Thursday morning, I was able to bump into Shane there.  I had just finished getting my haircut whenever I bumped into Shane.  It was the first time that I had seen Shane in person since August of 2014.  He is a very classy friend indeed.
