my life

i’m a warriors fan and enjoying their recent success after watching years of deplorable success with players like alton lister and kevin pritchard. i have my second electric car. i recently put a deposit in for the new tesla model 3 car but was disappointed at the interior and potential for problems since it’s the first model year of that car. i grew up near my parents and my kids grew up near their great-grandparents which is fantastic because i grew up far from extended family.

marcos is a good drummer

look at the passion in his eyes!

serj tankian’s “sky is over” song started playing on the radio and marc just caught fire. he’s not yet as good as me, even though i also have to steer the car with my knee as i drum. he’s definitely in the top 2% nationwide in his age group. maybe he’ll be neal peart in his future life.

the giants are going to suck this year

so, i had some initial optimism about how the giants would do this year but after seeing some of the box scores from the cactus league, i’m reconsidering my expectations of how they might finish. this, coupled with the fact that the dodgers hired joe torre, is making me think that it’s going to be a long summer.

yesterday, noah lowry threw 24 pitches before someone even took a swing. he went through the entire lineup without an official at-bat, since walks don’t count as an at-bat. of his first 30 pitches, only 4 were strikes. the giants also got shelled by the a’s in a cactus league game recently. maybe they are more suited for silver stadium at their current level of play?

omar vizquel, the calming defensive force in the young giants infield, is out with injury. bengie molina is batting cleanup. rich aurilia should be in the broadcast booth or managing a mcdonalds franchise. zito will be .500 or below this year again.

you gotta have the faith but it would be nice to have the faith without them nasty dodgers fans yelling in your ear all summer. let’s hope they pick it up a little bit and at least outperform the a’s.

good-bye hillary

by the end of the day today, we will have our democratic competitor to our gook-hating john mccain. let the real fun begin!

i think it’s safe to assume that hillary might have done better if she had a better campaign team, maybe being a little tougher on proofreading some of the official promotional materials:
