    The Ghost of Bob Starr got a reaction from PattyD22 in My dad   
    My daughters and i went to irvine park Wednesday night and watched the Perseid meteor showers from about 10p until 1a. Much rather spend that time with my kids, than on a barstool. Grateful to have an opportunity to be a parent.

    Curious and interesting. All of these are very good. Thank you all for it. Sometimes i feel like I'm the only dude who grew up with the oddball dad or the dad with issues.
    The important thing is being my anti-dad to my kids. I attend everything. I'm always there for them, even if I'm a bit of a hard ass. I always tell them I love them.

    My dad took me to a lot of Angels games as a kid. It was his place to go boozing without my mom telling him he was drinking too much.
    In the days before seat cup holders, I would constantly kick over the largest coke under my chair. As a six, or seven year old, I could never understand why he could come completely unglued at me. "Why can't you sit still? How hard is it to sit and not spill a coke?" I never realized that the bottle of booze my dad would sneak in my pocket on the way in, would be in that cup. It's one small example of how he put the bottle or the cards/dice ahead of me.
    I've had a lot of ups an downs with my dad. Our bond was the Angels. But he can disillusioned with baseball when the 90s strike happened, and I became disillusioned with him, when he ripped off my former in-laws.
    While I still try to make sense of all of it, and try not to completely exclude him from his grandkids lives, it is still difficult.
    I appreciate people sharing their stories here. My dad is 67 and he's not in good health. I've tried to look past all his crap to let my kids have the best time with them.
    I'm fortunate that my maternal grandparents are still alive. They are huge Angels fans and they watch every night. They are 94 and 91. I want the same thing for my kids, to have that lengthy relationship with their grandparents.
    Thanks for this thread. Like I said to Scott, I'm sorry for his, and others losses here. I know once they are gone they are gone.

    Just curious who will you all complain about next.  I assume Arte is number one on the hit list still. 

    I’m too lazy to create a poll. Thanks for your answers in advance. I’ll check back when the season is over.

    Was nobody counting Adam when discussing Asians on the Angels?   I’m offended.

    Remember when we naively used to brag about our perfect little ball club owned by the Cowboy and we’d curse the vile big teams full of druggies (Skaggs), cheats (Harkins), and lewd creeps (Callaway).  Glad to see our big owner brought the Angels to the big time. What a fucking disgrace this organization is.  All we need is a few parking lot murders to catch the Dodgers.

    Last night everyone pretty much broke it at the same time, probably because we all have the same Angels source telling us. 
     
    At this point it’s a formality. Some time today the Angels will announce Minasian as the GM.

    I’m not even sure what this means. Spend less time worrying about me Scott. There’s only one Lou here, it’s not you.  He’s at least funny.  
     
    This is why I only come here once a month. You make it an undesirable place to express an opinion. I’ve expressed this to you before. Way to go gatekeeper.

    Strad, when you were a finalist for your position, did they tell you that you were a finalist along with The Hamburglar, the BK King, Wendy, the 8th Karcher grandson?
    Someone in the org slipped this.  We don’t have a beat writer with a good foot in the door.
