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.

tv color commentators are useless

get-the-ball-back

Most football color commentators on TV are useless. I wish I could have only the audio feed from the stadium PA to hear who just made the last play, yards gained on the play and any penalties resulting from that play.

Even parents are guilty of this. I was at a friend’s local junior high football game this weekend and the parents were shouting from the stands “Get The Ball Back!” and “Stop Them Here!” I think the team is supposed to be doing that on every defensive play, no? As if the they were not planning to stop the ball but somehow your motivational words from the sideline will remind them why they are really there.
