WannaBe: Just made another bunch of future 'investments' in SF Giants tickets. I picked games that will draw fans (I have some idea of which teams have fans that travel well, or Giants fans want to go see). First home stand (game 2, Friday) to open the season vs LAD, 2 tix. Marlins, 2 tix ...

  WannaBe: <chancho> I think I've narrowed it down to why I dislike Spectre's theme song.

It's sung by a male in a high-pitched voice... Men/group have done lots of Bond themes, but I don't remember one being in a high-pitched voice.

  WannaBe: More idiots:

Nov-16-15  Jim Bartle: You better watch your step, <wb>, or else!

Oops, I forgot I'm not anonymous.

  WannaBe: You know, I posted last week, that St. Johns lost to some D-II school...

Just realized Ucla lost their first game of the '15-'16 season (at Pauley) to Monmouth.


Nov-16-15  Jim Bartle: UCLA, Georgetown and even Wisconsin lost their openers to really small colleges.

Sold 2 tix @162.00 (today)

Good thing I don't make a livin' doing this.

  waustad: I met a professional scalper in Costa Rica. I got the impression he was looking for something like a safe deposit box there where he could stash cash. He was based in NY and was probably trying to dodge taxes. It wouldn't be a shock if he got involved with the Brothers Villalobos eventually and lost it all. Their Ponzi scheme paid very well for quite a while.

  WannaBe: This is for <chancho> I think it covers every 'authorized' movies (yes, including George Lazenby) and it's done to one of the best Theme.

  chancho: Thanks <WannaBe> Btw, this is (imo) the best Bond fight ever:

  WannaBe: Holy Batman, JACKPOT!!!

I was just foolin' around on YouTube and got a clip of Harlem Globetrotter, and did a search on "Lady with Two Left Feet", a.k.a. "Sweet Georgia Brown"

And I struck the mother-lode!!


Sachmo doing the intro But I wonder what is the technique where the clarinet player do the 'staccato' is called.



Nov-19-15  Jim Bartle: I have no idea how he gets that sound on a clarinet.

  WannaBe: Gonna be a fun Saturday, both Ucla & that other school play at 12:30 Pacific.

Ucla never had much success at Salt Lake City and that other school goes to Eugene to face the red-hot Ducks (winner of 4 in a row).

In other news, Ucla basketball barely escaped Cal Poly at home. They will face Kentucky and North Carolina (at home) and visit Gonzaga (later in the season).

NIT, anyone?

Still losing to Detroit. 9-7.

Premium Chessgames Member

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Crap, Raiders down again. 16-13.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Crap, safety. Ugh! 18-13 Detroit.

  WannaBe: News: UCLA QB Josh Rosen has now thrown 218 passes without an INT, snapping the Bruins' team record of 199 by Drew Olson.

Reaction: Great. He just got jinxed, ahead of the cross-town showdown with that other school.

Nov-23-15  Jim Bartle: On the first series he should throw a 50yd. Bomb for an interception, just to get it out of the way.

Anything to avoid a pick six.

  WannaBe: Oh, goodie, Ucla is only down by 23 pts at half-time against Kansas, in Hawai'i.

  WannaBe: Just made another bunch of future 'investments' in SF Giants tickets. I picked games that will draw fans (I have some idea of which teams have fans that travel well, or Giants fans want to go see).

First home stand (game 2, Friday) to open the season vs LAD, 2 tix.

Marlins, 2 tix (Personal use, want to see Ichiro before he retires)

Cubs, Friday 2 tix, Sunday 2 tix.

LAD, June 12, 2 tix.

Oakland A's, June 27, 2 tix.

See how these future 'investments' work out. =))
