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.

your 2012 nl west champion giants

2012 San Francisco Giants NL West Champs

the giants clinched the nl west today. here are the guys turning into boys jumping and cheering. it’s amazing how they came together and went 25-9 after losing melky to the drug suspension. the dodgers took on $200 million in contracts and played terrible the rest of the way. they are 11 games behind the giants as of tonight.

panda and pagan are celebrating a little close here:

Pablo Sandoval and Angel Pagan are a little close

lyss and i were so inspired by the giants performance this season, we went to the mvp batting cages in san jose and tried to rekindle past performances. we did some fast pitch softball at 45mph ¬†and 55mph, along with baseball at 55mph and 65mph. oh man – we’re going to be sore tomorrow after all the hitting and missing. mostly missing. it’s still nice to see my former irvington 1st baseman hitting the ball, especially while wearing jeans.

how does isaac hit at 75mph? how do major league players hit 90mph? unbelievable.

ed and lyss at the batting cage

the giants fans finished off with some gangnam style.

even hardcore dodgers fans are supporting the giants push to the championship by making modest monetary contributions.

samsung mocks apple in courtroom, commercial

some part of me is thinking about getting an android phone. they have some cool hardware and also i can hack around the OS a little bit more. i’m still a mac guy for a computer but the iphone seems a little limiting in some aspects.

i also found out that new hires can opt to get a mac instead of a thinkpad. fml.

the hornit delivers

this is kinda like the loud horn that lyss wants to get, but for a bike.
