    G.O.A.T. game

    ^ well, here are two games I can think of that I would've loved to have seen 1965 Game 7: Koufax vs. Jim Kaat, both on 2 days rest, Koufax pitching in pain, Koufax pitching a 3-hit shutout 1991 Game 7: Smoltz vs. Jack Morris, Twins eventually won 1-0 in the bottom of the 10th (there's a chance I did watch this...but I was 3) Greatest football/soccer player of all time?

    Baseball discussion thread

    Yeah, I've been questioning Chavez for a while...When he's on, he's great, but he's just been hampered with injuries as of late. And you're right: motivation problem. It is sad to see the fan favorites leave, but I guess we'll be finding some new fan favorites...kind of like how Mulder left and Haren just stepped right in. That's terrible! At least, if nothing else, I've had the summers to go to games. I hope you do make it to the park this year!

    Baseball discussion thread

    Whoa...yeah, definitely! I've cried over baseball before (cough-hudson/mulder/zito-cough) but this winter...I dunno. It's not that I loved the players any less, but it just definitely felt like something needed to be done. Over the last couple of years we were getting some short term fixes, but it seemed like we were often playing catch-up. Swisher...well, it's sad to see him go for several reasons. He was Mr. Moneyball, he was supposed to be the symbol of Oakland's future..and now he's definitely not. We're sort of at a strange, uncomfortable beginning to a new era of A's baseball. I've gotten over the shock (or maybe I'm just numb), and at this point I'm even excited to make a fresh start and see what these new guys can become. In Billy I still Trust, I guess. Here's hoping for a low-injury season...

    Question for Californians...

    Yeah, seconded here! And as Redrum and a few others have said, Santa Cruz is fantastic, but it's the wrong choice if you're looking for something sunny right now. A bit north of there, I glance out my window. It's foggy...and raining. Not really a surprise.

    Actor Heath Ledger Dies

    This is terrible. I only just found out now, and...wow, I'm shocked. Unfortunately you know when it says they were "found in their apartment" that there was usually something dark in their life leading to this, whether it was drugs, depression...I guess we'll find out. It's horrible that his young daughter will never really know him; he was quite a talented actor.

    Baseball discussion thread

    Thought I'd bump this thread up...not that there's any huge breaking news, but just for some irreverent banter. Spring training is already less than a month away! I know as an A's fan, this upcoming season is going to be like nothing I've ever experienced before (I started watching them in 1998, right when they happened to be starting an upswing). Lots of unfamiliar faces to get to know, lots of young players. You have to start (again) somewhere, and it'll be exciting to see how we grow as a team over the next 8 months or so... Speaking of young players, the first story on mlb.com today was about how the Rockies are a physical away from signing Troy Tulowitzki, 23-year old SS rookie of the year runner-up, to a 6 year, $30 mil contract. I mean, the kid had a nice 2007 season...but it's his only full season. In what is becoming an off-season tradition, all together now: "This market is crazy." (full article) On a less serious note, one of mlb.com's other top stories was the 2008 "Marlins Mermaids" auditions. I was just wondering how other people felt about involving "dance squads" with baseball teams, the fact that these girls are supposed to be "ambassadors" for the clubs, and in general all the "event-izing" of baseball games across the country. I'm not so hot on the idea, but baseball does tend to bring out the traditionalist in me...or maybe as a straight female I just don't get to enjoy most of the attraction? Then again, I don't think I'd be any more enthused if there was a troupe of go-go boys advertising themselves as the "Marlins Mermen"... (full article)

    Post A Picture Of Yourself!

    I'm sure if you just do a google search for a file converter, you can find one for free that shouldn't be too difficult to work...

    Post A Picture Of Yourself!

    I have to agree...I guess there are a few English accents that could grate on my nerves after a while, but still... On the airplane coming back home from London this past summer, I talked to this really nice English man who'd been living in the San Francisco area for over 20 years. I told him he'd kept his accent remarkably well for having been away so long, and he said it was something he did try for, "because you can get away with murder in the states if you have an English accent!" I shuffled my feet awkwardly and pretended that I wasn't a prime example of someone who makes that statement true. Accents and swagger...they're going to get me in trouble one day. ...if I'm lucky

    What is Zeppelinesque

    In the most literal sense, I guess people use 'zeppelinesque' to describe a group with a powerful rhythm section, a brilliant guitarist (plus awesome riffs), and/or a singer with a very distinctive, nontraditional voice. But additionally, I think it could describe the charisma of the musicians, their chemistry, the mystique that's born out of a certain magical exclusivity amongst band members. I don't use the word, personally.
  11. Thanks NickZepp for posting that again! I'd never seen it before, but that was amazing! I thought I was going to die laughing during the dream sequences. Conan is total class.

    Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 1-21-08

    Thanks for posting, Levee and eternal light; until we actually make all of these dreams our reality, we can never be reminded too many times of Dr. King's words.

    Hilarious, but I dunno if it's worth hundreds of dollars...
