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.

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.

I still have my Nike Air jacket one year later!

Back in October of 2018, I got a black and white Nike Air jacket in the mail, but, since I ordered it as a “Christmas present,” I was not allowed to have it full-time for more than two months.  I like the jacket so much, I was able to buy one for my uncle, whose name is Thomas Papakie, as a Christmas present as well.  We both got them for Christmas last year … and we both still like them nearly one year later.  We will continue to wear them in the future.

Joseph “Gets Railed” For The Holidays In A Stylish Way!

As we prepare to wrap up the year 2019 and the 2010s in general, I would like to tell you about the time that I was able to “get railed” for the Holidays in a stylish way.  On December 21, 2019, I went to the Railyard Grill and Tap Room in Bridgeville for just over an hour that afternoon.  I wore my red Boston Terrier sweater to the restaurant … and so did my friend, Nicholas Ciesielski.  Now, I had owned my sweater for one year at that time … and, in a way, I wanted to celebrate the milestone in style.  My mother bought me that sweater at Target … and, not long before I got my sweater, Nicholas got his sweater at Target as well.  We were just being “stylish dudes” at the restaurant that afternoon … and we were literally “twinning” on that day.  We both wore our sweaters with jeans and tennis shoes then.

On December 21, 2019, me and Nicholas Ciesielski got our photo taken with Santa while we were at Railyard Grill and Tap Room in Bridgeville. Santa did a fantastic job in making two “stylish dudes” enjoy themselves that afternoon.

Before I left the restaurant that afternoon, I also snapped this photo with Jeremy Robinson, who is the manager of Railyard Grill and Tap Room.  I have been to this restaurant many times since it opened in late 2016 … and I would like to say that Jeremy and his fellow staff members all do a fantastic job in making the Railyard Grill and Tap Room a classy place for us to eat and have fun.

Thank you all for allowing me to give you guys some fantastic blog posts during the latter half of the 2010s.  I hope I can give you some more fantastic posts in the 2020s as well.  Have a fantastic new year, my friends … and I will give you another fantastic blog post in 2020.  I can’t tell you what it will be about just yet.

I am still a “Macho Man” two years later!

I have owned my purple Macho Man shirt for nearly two years now.  I really like the shirt a lot … and I have worn it many times since I got it.  I will continue to wear it many more times in the future.

I would also like to thank my friend, Joe Cohen, for inspiring me to own a classy shirt like this one.  We wore them to Bee’z Bistro and Pub in South Fayette twice in the last two years or so.  We wore them there in May of 2018 and in January of 2019.

Next time, I will show you my top blog posts for the year 2019 in a two-part blog post.  You may remember some of the blog posts that I will be showing you guys in the two-part blog post.

Happy birthday, Nicholas Ciesielski!

Today, I would like to wish Nicholas Ciesielski a happy 34th birthday.  He is one of the classiest people I have ever known.  We worked at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx together in the late 2000s and early 2010s … and now he is a councilman in Bridgeville and he works at Railyard Grill and Tap Room in Bridgeville.

Over the years, I have bumped into him at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx, Railyard Grill and Tap Room and Fairview Park.

In April of 2019, me and Nicholas wore our red Boston Terrier sweaters to Railyard Grill and Tap Room.  We both look like “stylish dudes” in them.

Happy 34th birthday, Nicholas Ciesielski!  Keep being classy … and stylish!

I have owned my grey Michael Kors jacket for four years now!

On the afternoon of December 7, 2015, I purchased a grey Michael Kors jacket at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx … and, overtime, it has become my favorite jacket of all time.  Several days later, the jacket would start turning me into “Mr. Classy” whenever I would wear it.  I would like to say thank you for allowing me to have a classy jacket for four years.  This is actually my favorite jacket of all time.

I would like to give a special thanks to Bryan Gogarty, Joe Cohen, Jonathan Reed and Tim Smith for being able to wear the grey Michael Kors jacket at various times over the past four years.  Two of those people became Mr. Classy’s “stand-ins” … and they both did a fantastic job in wearing the grey MK jacket with class.  I would also like to thank my friend, Jeff Mooney, who used to work with me at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx, for inspiring me to make a classy decision in buying the grey Michael Kors jacket … and for allowing me to have a classy moniker like “Mr. Classy.”

“‘Mr. Classy’ says, ‘see you all later!'”

I am still stylish in my Christmas sweater one year later!

Nearly one year ago, I got my red Boston Terrier sweater from a company called 33 Degrees.  The sweater is a Christmas sweater … and it is from Target.  I really like this sweater … and so do a lot of other people.  I hope you guys like this sweater as much as I do.

My friend, Nicholas Ciesielski, also has this sweater … and we were both able to wear them to Railyard Grill and Tap Room in Bridgeville back in April during the Bill Ali concert.  I will wish Nicholas a happy 34th birthday in a blog post on Sunday.  I would also like to say that this Christmas sweater turns both me and Nicholas into “stylish dudes.”  The sweater is that good.

Let’s Talk About A Past Blog Post: Celebrating Five Years Of Friendship With DJ Joe

In October of 2013, I became friends with DJ Joe, whose real name is Joe Cohen … and, just last October, I celebrated five years of friendship with him by writing a blog post entitled “Celebrating Five Years Of Friendship With DJ Joe.”  In the post, I talked about my friendship with him … and I was inspired to write the post because I wanted to talk about a classy person like DJ Joe.

Here’s the link to the blog post …
Celebrating Five Years Of Friendship With DJ Joe (October 10, 2018)

Now, just so you know, I have now been friends with “DJ Joe” for six years … and the purple “Macho Man” shirt is still the “de facto” shirt of our friendship.

Joseph Has A Classy Mount Union T-Shirt!

I really like the lacrosse team at the University of Mount Union, which is located in Alliance, Ohio.  My friend Chuck Lazzini’s son, Dom, plays on that team … and, in a way, he is giving that team some class.  The team is the Mount Union Purple Raiders.  Now, I already have a purple Mount Union Raiders shirt from Russell Athletic … and, on August 27, 2019, I got a white Mount Union T-shirt in the mail.  The T-shirt is from Champion.  It is a rather classy shirt … and I would like to thank Chuck for allowing me to have this shirt.

On August 27, 2019, I got this white Mount Union T-shirt in the mail. The shirt is from Champion … and it is very classy. I would like to thank Chuck Lazzini for allowing me to have this shirt.

Now, as I said before, I got this shirt in the mail on August 27th, but I didn’t actually put it to use until the next morning.  I was able to try it on shortly after I got it … and I really like it a lot.  Now, you can wear this shirt with gym shorts or regular shorts, but, in my opinion, it looks classier with jeans.  The T-shirt is a pretty simple one, to say the least.  Underneath of Champion’s logo, you can see the words “Mount Union” on there … and you can see the letter C, which is from Champion’s logo, on the shirt’s left sleeve.  I apologize for not showing it to you clearly in the photos.

Now, again, I would like to thank Chuck Lazzini for allowing me to have this shirt … and me and him will be able to wear it with class many times in the future.  He is a terrific friend.
