|Jun-17-13|| ||HeMateMe: <Is a 16 point lead safe?>|
Not against those greyhounds, it isn't.
|Jun-17-13|| ||kingfu: HeMateMe, I am chasing you around again! San Antonio prevailed! The hard part will be getting a win in Miami. Game 7 anyone?|
How did you know about me and San Fran? Before there was The Ugly Stick (aka Candlestick Park), there was Seals Stadium that was not too far from the new ball park. In 1959, I saw the Giants beat the Phillies. I saw Willie Mays catch a ball hit off the wall BEFORE it hit the ground and hold the batter to a single! Seals Stadium was what they used to call a bandbox. I told you I was old! If Mays played now they would have give him his own state. And a good one, too, NOT California.
OK, I suppose I have to do some politics since we are on Rogoff. Here goes: What is everyone's take on the new President of Iran, Rowhani? Meet the new boss, same as the old boss? I was under the impression that the mullahs ran Iran.
|Jun-17-13|| ||kingfu: How old am I? Senior moment enough to think I was on Rogoff!|
|Jun-17-13|| ||HeMateMe: Well, you mentioned before you live in san Fran, although you don't post as much as u used to. |
Great series. I think is a seven gamer as well.
The 'stick before every stadium had to be named after the corporate sponsor. We still have Lambeau field in green bay, and Soldiers field in Chicago.
If you saw Willie Mays, then you saw a real ball player, before all these worthless bastards hurt the game with steroids and human growth hormone. They would have injected bat sh** into themselves if it would have made them some more money.
Lay off the beef blood, Bruce!
|Jun-17-13|| ||Jim Bartle: I saw many games at Seals Stadium, with the giant glass of Hamm's Beer behind home plate, filling and re-filling. Remember Cepeda in left, turning to answer the fans who were yelling at him between pitches. |
Also saw an exhibition between the Red Sox and the minor league SF Seals in 1957.
|Jun-17-13|| ||kingfu: Prime example of bad stuff just on the Giants : Find a picture of Barry Bonds when he played for the Pirates. He weighed 180 and hit many home runs but mostly doubles just like dad Bobby who played next to Mays. Cut to Barry on The Giants weighing 235. Gee, I didn't know eating Wheaties could do that. Or maybe it was something else. Barry then or 'roided was (and is) an a$$. Sat by himself in the locker room with headphones. Mays (and Hank Aaron) both weighed 175. In 1950 and 1980. |
After SF, I moved to Seattle. Ken Griffey, Jr was largely ignored with 630 lifetime NATURAL Home Runs. It should have been lots more but Griffey could not keep from bashing into the Center field wall and missing many games due to injury.
Did I mention I also lived in LA. Ever see Koufax pitch? I have some catching up to do!
|Jun-17-13|| ||OhioChessFan: Bonds' head is what amazed me. By the time he retired, his head was like a huge pumpkin.|
|Jun-28-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: << AJ, are you a Miami Heat fan? Did you watch the games? >>|
I saw all or part of many of the games on TV, and I even paid a fee (on a sports network) to watch replays of a couple of the games.
So I guess the answer would be yes.
|Jun-28-13|| ||HeMateMe: Well, I won't hold being a Heat fan against you...|
|Jun-30-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: I guess you are (were) a Spurs fan?
They came soooo close this year ....
Was it just one more win for them, or two?
|Jun-30-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: One person (on a sports channel) commenting on a news story, said that this was a fairly clean series, with few (big?/bad?) penalties. |
Would you agree with this? (For myself, I did not pay close enough attention to the penalties.)
|Jul-01-13|| ||HeMateMe: It was a hard fought, well played finals, 6 games. No fights. The Spurs are an aging team, and they just ran out of gas. |
I personally don't like Miami because I feel the hero worship of LeBron James is unjustified. He isn't Jordan, Bill Russell or Magic Johnson, and I don't think he is going to make it into the rare air that those guys rose to. It's the curmudgeon in me--I like basketball when the coach plays nine guys and everyone scores in double figures.
|Jul-02-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Cool. (I would say your assessment was "spot-on," as they would say.) I would also agree that while LeBron is great, he will never be (the) equal to Michael Jordan.|
|Sep-05-13|| ||OhioChessFan: At the end of the day, if you win a debate with anti-American pond scum, they're still anti-American pond scum.|
|Sep-06-13|| ||HeMateMe: Yeah, I don't get it. Of course the USA has made mistakes. I'm not a God-dam robot. I just see the glass as being half full, not half empty.|
We wouldn't touch a butt-hole like Syria with a ten foot pole if it weren't to prevent these chem weapons from proliferating, or to stop some other sort of genocide. The American taxpayers, most of them, don't even want us to do something this valuable, but we probably still will. A lot of people on this site think that your typical American is a Donald Trump persona, who plan to put a hotel and golf course on every piece of land that Americans have an association with. Apparently all Americans are fat, rich, and think the whole world is a big game of Risk.
|Sep-06-13|| ||TheFocus: <Apparently all Americans are fat, rich, and think the whole world is a big game of Risk.>|
Well, I wouldn't call me fat. A little fluffy perhaps.
I could use some time at the gym.
A lot of time actually.
OK, never mind. I'm fat.
|Sep-07-13|| ||HeMateMe: ^^But, are you a serious Risk player? That's what they REALLY want to know...|
|Oct-18-13|| ||Eggman: Hey.
Regarding a recent discussion on the 'Kibitzers Cafe': Henry McCullough is not dead. Perhaps you're confusing him with Jimmy McCullough?
|Oct-18-13|| ||HeMateMe: Yes, it was Jimmy. Are there in fact two McCulloughs, both musicians?|
|Oct-18-13|| ||Eggman: Yes, two McCulloughs, unrelated, and both members at one time of Wings!|
|Oct-18-13|| ||Eggman: By the way, since you like Yes's first album, have you heard this contemporaneous number, which was released only as a b-side: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M94i...?|
|Oct-18-13|| ||HeMateMe: Nice tune, Egg, thanks for posting. It doesn't sound quite as good as the later stuff like Fragile and close to the edge. They were just getting their feet wet as composers?|
|Oct-19-13|| ||Eggman: Something's Coming is a song by Sondheim / Bernstein from West Side Story. And no, Leonard Bernstein was not just getting his feet wet!|
