  1. Brockmire, Preacher, and Black Sails are playing right now. Brockmire 1st season is hilarious, and has picked-up after the first two shaky episodes of season two. Preacher is very strange, and even with that description has kinda rode off the rails this season. Still entertaining though. Black Sails is great for us pirate lovers. It's got the pirate violence, sex, and politics. I've got SOA, Sicario, and a few other oldies cued-up as time allows....
  2. I asked Vic the same question... This is the answer. But, what if he's pitching a gem and takes an at-bat for the DH before the lineup turns-over?... I don't think the plan includes him hitting and pitching, but we'll see what happens during inter-league.
  3. FYI... I got an email from CBS Sports to fill-out a bracket, and it's titled "Angels Win." Looks like it's up and running for anybody who wants to play!
  4. Saw this today... https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3684835-the-secret-government There's a passage regarding school shootings, "The government encouraged the manufacture and importation of military firearms for the criminals to use. This is intended to foster a feeling of insecurity, which would lead the American people to voluntarily disarm themselves by passing laws against firearms. Using drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in a process called Orion, the CIA inculcated the desire in these people to open fire on schoolyards and thus inflame the antigun lobby. This plan is well under way, and so far is working perfectly. The middle class is begging the government to do away with the 2nd amendment." I'm working on getting a copy of this book, that was written back in 1991.
  5. Great story regarding this... My buddy and I usually take-off early on Weds. to hit a bar for some shuffleboard or pool. We went to play pool, and I see this crazy-looking dude dressed all in black come rolling in after awhile. There's about 6 people in the bar, including us and the obviously Tinder-matched couple playing the other pool table. Well, he comes strolling over to our game after stink-eyeing us from afar for awhile. I pretty much immediately recognized him from arresting him the week before for a restraining order violation against his own family (he has threatened to shoot or stab his cousin). He says to me, "You look familiar to me." I said, "Well, if you've been in this bar before you've probably seen us. We're regulars." And that was the end of it. I went into the restroom to relieve myself, and stood sideways fearing he might follow me in there to get stabby. My buddy ran in instead, and asked if I had my gun. Told him I didn't, and he ran out to his car to get his! Nothing happened, and the guy eventually left. I don't do much makeup at work, but I'm pretty much bald and wear ball caps outside of work. 8}
  6. Agreed; it is impossible to take all guns away. There are too many in the hands of criminals, that it would just create more victims. 2A decisions recently have upheld the right pertaining to all firearms and even a stun gun. I'm for more restrictive gun laws federally, that would overrule States rights. Some States are silly with their minimum age allowances, and other outdated ideals. I'd like a solid federal age minimum of 21 to buy/own, along with a background check (which I am pretty flexible about). I also think the federal law should impose these new laws for concealed-carry reciprocity Nation-wide. The mental health situation in this Country is out of control. Fixing it should be one of the highest priorities of Government. I'd say that close to 75% of Police-related calls involve some kind of mental health issue. I wouldn't group the "weirdos" in with the high-risk mentally ill, but right now they seem to be treated the same; we keep having the same problems with the high-risk returning to the streets without receiving adequate treatment. And some of the "weirdos" are allowed to grow into high-risk. When something insane like this happens, I always turn to my peers and say, "I'm just glad we don't understand it." I agree it's a fine-line, but not that fine a line. In most of these cases, the red-flags were there and were either not reported, under-reported, or under-investigated. As for the under-investigation part of it, I'd lay that blame on this last regime. They cut staffing, created an atmosphere of demonizing Law Enforcement, and continue to try to take benefits away. We will not be able to hire quality people to replace retirees, if there's no support. As far as these specific active-shooting incidents go, I think there is a simple solution. I'm in favor of arming willing and able (able is the vetting and training) Teachers and staff, to be able to carry-concealed on-campus. Take down the asinine "gun-free zone" signs, and replace them with warnings of armed staff prepared to defend themselves and students. Just changing the signs would drastically lower the number of incidents, and one great success story would go a long way toward a solution. And yes, I do carry-concealed just about everywhere now... except for most visits to bars (not all though, because I live in-town and have been recognized before). RIP to all the Victims, living and murdered.
  7. Hey Fam! Been MIA for awhile during a busy summer... Hope the Boys can stay hot! Depending on tonight's outcome, I might be away again for awhile... Hah! I've been impressed with this Team's fight this season! Battling through lots of key injuries, they've fought-back into relevance! It cracks me up to hear all the sports-channel talking-heads jumping on the bandwagon!... Hoping to see the Boys get into the Postseason but, win or lose, it's been just another great Halos season to watch with Trouty providing super-human antics and King Albert's run up the homer chart! I've got at least two more games scheduled this season- Boys night this Friday, and of course LB State night next month! Ahhhh letsa goa Angels!
  8. I did watch it yesterday! Made me sad I hadn't watched the whole event... These ladies are very good, and they were having a blast playing the game and to the crowds! That Lexi halve was critical! Great job, USA Ladies!
  9. Again; we're gonna coast to winning the Golden Cactus Trophy this Spring! Might even go undefeated, if we cancel those silly split-squad games! *Hopefully, I'm pouring-on the sarcasm heavily enough here...
  10. Unfortunately, it is Dodger Stadium fan experience. This guy should've been charged for the Felony assault with a deadly weapon, along with his princess mother. Fucking California strikes again... At the very least, he should be banned but how do you really enforce that? Thug-family life.
  11. Both Espi's and Shoe's beards are macho! To the point of looking fake... I can't go past two weeks without shaving my face-bush off; too annoyingly scratchy. Beard or no beard, Espi will be a great addition this season! Go Beach!
  12. I hope the Angels win the Golden Cactus this year! Seriously tho; gotta hijack this a little bit... Watching/listening to the games, it cracks me up how seriously all these announcers take the first few games of ST. It's about process now, not results yet. *Though, we did just improve to 4-0! The best team in baseball, beating the reigning Champs! Back to our own Anaheim Stadium... I grew-up going to this field for Angels, high school, and Rams games. I have seen the stadium changed and upgraded (which will continue to be necessary), but it is still one of my favorite places to be. I love being able to park outside of center field to tail-gate (or visit tail-gates under the Big-A), and wander to our right field seats. I love the Budweiser patio, and being able to stand and chat with friends during the games. I feel like the sight-lines are very good at our park; all I need is a scoreboard that reports the vital stats, including pitch-count and velocity. If the ESPN article keeps fair-weather or curiosity-seekers away, that just means more room for me to kick my feet-out, relax, and watch the great game.
