Happy 26th Birthday to Hanley Liu!
Below is how I will choose to honor him tonight! They are photos of the cars he’s driven (not the actual cars)!
The Padres lost to the Dodger$ today (Sunday) in 17 innings. The Pads totally did not deserve to win today’s game. This season, the “bad” blue crew has won 4 out of 6 games so far from the “good” blue crew. The bright side of this is I think the Dodgers won the first series or two from the Padres last year and then the Padres ending up winning 13 out of the 18 meetings between the two teams last season on their way to a second consecutive National League West pennant (there was no tie last year. Dodger fans are the only ones who think there was.) I don’t bleed Dodger blue. I bleed Padre blue!
I’ve been trying to get a little more exercise lately. I joined a Sunday night basketball team and my company’s Monday night co-ed softball team. I’m just out there to have some fun and get some exercise. I don’t subscribe to the Al Davis “just win, baby” mentality. I’ll just say I was a lot better at basketball when I was in high school than I am now. That’s not to say I was any good in high school; I’m just saying I’m pretty bad now. It’s hard not knowing all the intricacies and strategy of the game. Then again, this is coming from someone who believe “bball” should only refer to baseball because it’s the original “bball.” My knowledge of the games of baseball and football are exponentially greater than my basketball knowledge and familiarity. On the softball diamond, I’m not as good as I am playing baseball because of the major difference in what’s needed to hit successfully (generate your own power versus using the velocity of the incoming pitch, wait (forever) for the ball to come to you, etc.). We’ll see how things go!
It’s crazy to think I used to be fast (while not driving an automobile).
