|May-21-16|| ||WannaBe: Went to Santa Rosa, and visited Charles M. Schultz Museum, (M. stands for Monroe).|
|May-21-16|| ||Penguincw: Preakness Stakes about to win. For me, <if> I had to put a bet on something, I'd put the minimum on "Nyquist" placing top 3.|
Tragic story though, as 2 horses die in the first few races. :(
|May-21-16|| ||chancho: Time for the Nyquil, suckers! :-)|
|May-21-16|| ||Penguincw: Ah, so Nyquist did finish in 3rd+. I "lost" $2.40 last time, "won" $0.20 today, so "lifetime", I'm at -$2.20. Let's see if I could do better at the Belmont Stakes!|
|May-22-16|| ||WannaBe: Busy sports night at Bay Area, Warriors, and Giants... Both at 5PM Pacific|
|May-22-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: <WannaBe: GPRO closed today at $8.82, back in Oct. 2014, the stock was trading at $93.85.|
That's right, ninety three dollars and eighty five cents. That's not a typo, it's worth have dropped approx. 92%
TWTR closed today at $14.08, back in Dec. 2013, it was trading at $73.31. Ugh!!
(I don't own any of these two stocks directly, I hope my retirement account portfolio don't either...)>
Glad to hear that. With those kinds of stocks, long-term investing is more risky than trading. Imagine taking profits on GPRO at, say, $88 or so? Much nicer than holding on...
But seeing as you're a betting man, ever bet on any small-cap biotech stocks? PCYC or REGN?
|May-22-16|| ||WannaBe: Heck NO!!|
|May-22-16|| ||WannaBe: Apple pulls update for iPad Pro:
How to fix OS X issues after updating them:
|May-23-16|| ||WannaBe: Update on my StubHub 'investments'...
Sunday's CHI/SF game was a total loss, purchased 2 tickets and was not able to re-sell them (Warriors game was same night, same time) loss of $96. As I was not able to attend the game myself.
Sold June 12 LAD/SF game, made $18. So, thus far, including last year, I think I am down about $15 or so, still have 3 listings.

|May-26-16|| ||WannaBe: You go John!!
|May-26-16|| ||WannaBe: Theranos hit with second class-action lawsuit in as many days. Ugh!!|

|May-26-16|| ||WannaBe: Pittsburgh win!! Will host San Jose for the Cup. Game 1 Monday!!|
|May-26-16|| ||Penguincw: Woah, the Pens lift the Prince of Wales Trophy.
Anyway, I <wanted> to see a STL-TBL final. Great...
But in the finals, I'll probably cheer for the Sharks. Not saying they'll win.
|May-26-16|| ||Jim Bartle: <Woah, the Pens lift the Prince of Wales Trophy. >|
I thought it's tradition never to touch the Conference Title Trophy, as the job isn't done yet.
|May-26-16|| ||WannaBe: <JB> No, it's the Lord Stanley's Cup that you don't touch.|
|May-26-16|| ||Jim Bartle: Really? You mean before you win it. Once a team has won the Stanley Cup they do all sorts of strange things with it.|
|May-26-16|| ||WannaBe: <JB> Correct. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tradi... |
Scroll down a bit to "Touching the Cup".
Don't touch (my) cup, either.
|May-27-16|| ||Jim Bartle: Looked at the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6E...|
Crosby took the trophy but didn't hold it up, didn't skate around with it, and none of the other players touched it.
I don't know a thing about hockey, and have yet to see a puck go into the net in real time, but it sure has some cool traditions. Starting with the handshake line.
|May-27-16|| ||WannaBe: <JB> Two others at the podium also held it, hence, they touched it. According to the audio, the video only showed Crosby.|
So, 3 players on the Pittsburgh team touched it. Yes, other players did not touch it, as hockey is (very) superstitious, possibly more than baseball and not talking to pitcher for no-hitters and step on foul line going on/off the field between innings.
Handshake line is the best, now baseball have somewhat adopted it, where at the end of the series players and managers meet at home plate to shake hands.
Play-off beards are my favourite, now baseball have also adopted it, and to some degree, football.
|May-27-16|| ||Jim Bartle: I have looked at some old hockey games. It seems to me back then the goalies were well-padded but basically the pads just covered the body. Today the pads look so huge they seem to block the entire net.|
|May-27-16|| ||Jim Bartle: I think I remember a conference champion a few years ago where the team captain just left the trophy on the table and the entire team went back to the locker room.|
