Cal Poly 29, SDSU 27

For the second time in three years, a late fourth quarter field goal gave my alma mater, Cal Poly SLO, a victory over I-A San Diego State. I was there to witness it and it was certainly an exciting game to watch. I'd like to look forward to another Cal Poly vs. SDSU game in […]

Olympic boxing

I watched some more Olympic boxing last night and it further confirmed my disdain for the system. The bout I watched was the light flyweight bout between Irishman Paddy Barnes and Zou Shiming of China. When all was said and done, Shiming had won 15-0. I'm not going to say Shiming lost -- I'm honestly […]

29th Olympiad

I didn't watch the opening ceremonies -- I'm a sports fan, not a "ceremonies" fan. That's one of the reasons that the Olympics, as broadcast by NBC, is too often a disappointment. When they have the World Cup half way across the world, they air the games whenever they actually occur -- whether that's in […]

My local sports team is better than your local sports team

Ivonne Hernandez is a Yankees fan. She got in an argument with a bunch of Red Sox fans -- and then ran them over. "She never braked, and she accelerated at a high speed for about 200 feet. She went directly at this group of people," prosecutor Susan Morrell said of Ivonne Hernandez, who is […]

Great game

Kansas defeated Memphis earlier this evening, 75-68 in OT. It was a great game, although I had to mute the commentary several times after having to listen to the inanity that was Jim Nantz and Billy Packard. Line of the night: Kansas has experience in OT champioinship games. Their 1957 team played in one. 1957. […]

March Madness note

I get digital cable with a bunch of the extra sports channels. In the past three or four days, it seems like every time I flip past CSTV they're replaying the UConn/USD game that USD won 70-69 in OT. USD was bounced out Sunday by Western Kentucky, but that game was truly an instant classic.

Pull the other one

When I got home this evening I watched the replay of the San Diego State Aztecs' 73-63 loss to New Mexico. The game airs on an obscure cable network created to serve the cities/teams of the Mountain West Conference called "the mtn." Yes, the all-lowercase affectation is a little annoying. The point: Color commentator Dave […]

Watch the bat

I'm not sure it's worth an ESPY, but wow. He should go out and buy a lottery ticket.

What's not being said

Social Security is a government-run Ponzi scheme. It depends on an ever-increasing number of workers to pay the retirement benefits of an ever-increasing number retirees. Like a Ponzi scheme, it works at first, but then the math starts to work against it. We'll reach that point in 2017 or thereabouts, when the amount of money […]
