Chillin' Wit' is a regular feature of the Daily News spotlighting a name in the news away from the job. CITY Councilman David Oh spends his Sunday at the church his father founded several decades and locations ago, Philadelphia Korean Presbyterian Church, now on Hoffman Avenue near Cobbs Creek Parkway. "It's not like I really want to shoot pool and watch sports all day," says Oh, 52. "I don't have a man cave. I'm used to working hard six days a week and then coming to church with my family every Sunday.

The 2-month-old website Dudepins.com (slogan: "Man up. Sign up. Pin up. ") is what you might end up with if you grabbed Pinterest by its grosgrain and calico corners, shook it free of all the wedding cakes, cute kittens and arty crafts, and then restocked it with photos of mustaches, man caves and Maker's Mark. The brainchild of two 25-year-olds from Vancouver, British Columbia, Kamil Szybalski and Colin Brown, Dudepins manages to be both a spot-on sendup of the oh-so-popular P-site and a humorous way for disenfranchised bros to indulge in a virtual version of time-honored traditions like showing off that LeRoy Neiman painting of Larry Bird or a maroon 1984 Cadillac Seville without being forced to wade through terabytes of braiding-twisting techniques.

Chillin' Wit' is a regular feature of the Daily News spotlighting a name in the news away from the job.

Many guys have a version of a man cave, where they hole up to watch sports with pals, brews, Web access, and grippable grub. Now supersize that. Make it your whole life for a baseball season, as you attempt to watch all 2,430 major-league games on a huge viewing wall. Add social media and video duties. Throw in visits from famous baseball players - including the Phillies' Ryan Howard - and other celebrities.

WELL, FELLOW Phillies fans, you are coming through like gangbusters - sending our Fightins into their battle for back-to-back championships on the mighty wings of Fan Fervor: From England - "I moved from Northern Liberties to England the year before the World Series," writes U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt.

This personal journey begins at the end. After 50 hours in New York City to get out of the neighborhood and take in a couple of plays, my wife and I returned home, where we had left our 19-year-old son Cale to his own devices. His older sister thought us crazy. And so began our second journey, an investigation, sniffing for clues about what happened during our absence. Clue No. 1: A strange car sits in the driveway. Clue No. 2: We get blasted by an overwhelming odor as we open the front door.

Erin Bagley and Nuri Noaz aren't just work buddies. They're also wedding expo partners. The two Philadelphia lawyers were keeping each other company Sunday at the Bellevue Gets Engaged, an event designed to hook up brides-to-be with everything from bakeries to stretch limousines. (The latter were parked out front on Broad Street.) Bagley, who says preparing for her November wedding has made her "bananas," went to the expo looking for a DJ. She calls wedding prep "our second full-time job. " Noaz, who works at the same firm as Bagley, agreed, calling the experience "exhausting.

  TOMAS SANCHEZ, the husband of City Councilwoman Maria Quinones Sanchez , is really going to miss his man cave. But the state Constitution says members of the General Assembly have to live in their district for one year before their election. And Sanchez is seriously considering a 2014 Democratic primary election challenge for the 197th state House seat held by rookie state Rep. J.P. Miranda . Last month, Sanchez changed his voter registration from the home he shares with his wife half a block south of Norris Square to an apartment in a building owned by his brother half a block north of Norris Square.

Before we talk about how Danielle Ermel and Joe Gorzkowski became the center of each other's universe, or about the fabulous kitchen Joe built for Danielle - "my dream kitchen on steroids," she calls it - let's go back to the not-so-long-ago beginning. It was 2007, and the odds of these guys' ever making it to coupledom, let alone marriage, weren't great. She was a 40-year-old hairdresser just emerging from a crisis in self-confidence brought on by divorce. He was a 47-year-old contractor who'd never married, and told his family and friends he probably never would.

With 10 days down at the London Olympics and six to go, here are some observations from my man cave: I'm glad I watched live streaming on my computer Sunday afternoon, because the power went out later that evening after a storm. I would have missed all the fun, in particular Usain Bolt. The aptly named Bolt smoked the fastest field of 100-meter runners in history. They weren't even in the same picture frame. I have always been partial to distance runners, being a cross-country runner myself back in high school, but who can't marvel at this man?

I have always believed I am a reasonably good American couch potato. I like watching sports as much as many men, and I've done a decent job of converting my wife - so much so that we just bought a La-Z-Boy love-seat recliner for the man cave. We call it the double-wide. Yes, it's true - though she's much more likely to get me to watch Downton Abby with her than I am to get her to watch Wimbledon with me. My point is I have a confession to make. I've been asked to watch the Olympics on all its platforms and write a daily column on it for this newspaper/media company.
