  WannaBe: Saw the documentary "Betting on Zero". The story of Bill Ackman v Herbalife. Pretty interesting, having followed this 'Drama' for the last few years, there was really nothing in it that I didn't already know.

Still worth watching, if you don't know it.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Alright, these pictures from Ucla @ Stanford should be marked as public on

If you are not able to view them, please let me know!

Premium Chessgames Member
  NakoSonorense: Cool pictures! Who won? Are they in the playoffs already? I don't know how college baseball works.

  WannaBe: Saw 'The Founder' last night, with Michael Keaton playing Ray Kroc. Also had Laura Dern playing Mrs. Kroc. Heck of a movie/documentary. Definitely (highly) recommend it.

The big bald guy from Fargo (played husband to Francis McD, who was a painter and got on the one cent stamp) played one of the McDonald brother.

Vacation over, back to work.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Forgot to mention, the ceremonial 'first pitch' for that Ucla@Stanford game was none other than Dr. C. Rice

But I think she cheated, she threw three times; two of them I caught on camera. =))
