Me at the Nationals vs. Orioles on Saturday, June 23, 2012. The game was played in Baltimore and the Nationals won 3-1.
Big fan of the shirt Gary!
One of the best parts of my day is getting to drop my son off at school. Sometimes we listen to one of his favorite kids albums — right now it’s the Barenaked Ladies SnackTime album, a very clever collection of kid-friendly songs. It’s about the only one I don’t mind listening to over and over.
Other times, he’ll play one of the many educational apps on the iPad; his favorite being “Stack the States,” which we play together. That app has helped him learn all 50 states and their capitals. Not bad for a 7-year-old!
Sometimes, when we get to the school, I like to snap a quick photo to remind me of our morning rides. And then I can’t wait to pick him up after work and see how his day went.
Life is always busy in our family and these photos, these happy moments frozen in time, help to remind me to take stock of what’s really important in life.
I believe Amanda took this photo of me the last time I made it up to Charlottesville. I would have loved to have spent a few days up there working and hanging out with the team, but I’ll look forward to the next time!
Meet the Team: Gary
Being based in the New River Valley, it’s not often I get to hang out with the Business Bullpen crew at HQ in Charlottesville. But, a couple of weeks ago, I made my way up to Hooville for a photo shoot. We took serious pictures and not-so-serious pictures. Guess which category this one falls into? I call this, “Hey look! A random guitar amp!”

Gary Cope, Business Bullpen’s SEO Specialist
Today we are going to post a GPOYW of every team member. First up is our SEO Specialist, Gary Cope.
Last month Gary visited his dad to play some golf and watch some ball games. Last August Gary weighed about 230 pounds and wore a size 40 waist. He started eating better and joined a gym and since August he has dropped nearly 50 pounds and is now about 180 and wears a 33 waist! Gary was truly hoping that the weight loss would improve his golf game. Uh, nope. Not even close. In fact, he only hit one decent drive all day. According to him, it was about the worst golf outing in the history of golf. Ever.
At first, he was disappointed, but then Gary realized that all it means is that he needs to play MORE golf to try and get better. Makes sense, right?
