I build websites

My name is Jeff Bridgforth. I am a ‘front of the front-end developer’ for LGND, which is just a fancy way of saying that I build websites created by our design team.

Webcraftsman is not just my Twitter moniker. It describes me to a “t.” I put my heart and soul into every design I code. My craftsmanship is embodied in my style, dedication, and attention to detail.

This is one of my favorite baseball moments. When the Royals won the 1985 World Series. I love this video because it uses Denny Matthew’s call on the radio, which is how I experienced the championship moment. I listened to the game on a headphone radio next door at Arrowhead Stadium.

My soccer coach, who was also a Scout leader, needed some help cleaning up Arrowhead after a Chiefs-Broncos game earlier in the day. His scout troop did not have enough manpower so several of us from the team helped out.

We were told that if we finished cleaning before the end of the Royal’s game they would allow us to go over and stand in the concourse to watch the conclusion. But that did not happen as we were near finishing the cleanup when the final out was recorded next door.

Denny Matthews had started the countdown with every out from the seventh or eighth inning on. After a very dramatic comeback win the night before, it was nice to have a game that the Royals were in control of very early on.

I remember hearing the sound of the fireworks going off after they won the game and catching a glimpse of them through one of the section entrances (we were working the side nearest to Kauffman Stadium.

We had a lot of fun celebrating with other fans as we made our way through the parking lot to go home after a long day. I would have rather been next door watching that game but I am glad we were right there so close when they claimed their first championship.

That moment happened 38 years ago today.

It looks like I will be getting a Christmas gift from Firefox. :has selector support is now available in Firefox Nightly (121) which is two versions ahead of the regular release. Firefox 119 just dropped yesterday so we can expect :has support near the end of December which will complete evergreen browser support. I have already used :has as a progressive enhancement. I am excited to start using this new tool with more solutions beyond progressive enhancement.
