    Are you kidding, Gene? I want a Kardashian Channel. Two of them would be better. Actually, Ellie told me that the beginning of the Kardashians was a sex tape of this woman. Unbelievable. Famous for being famous. The amazing thing about the pitching is that the 2 teams that loaded up (A's & Tigers) at the trade deadline have been losing a good bit lately. Really surprising. Price pitched a one hitter last night, and lost. So, in general, I'd agree that the teams with the pitching are the ones you'd expect to win, especially in the playoffs. But, the O's are looking like they will at least get a chance. "So, you're sayin' there's a chance."

    BIGdave/Crackersoul Fantasy Football Commish - when is the draft? I haven't received any notice yet but I'm sure it's just around the corner.

    70mph for a new 13 year old, any 13 year old, much less a girl, is nothing short of amazing. You've probably seen the conversion chart for little league pitchers. 70mph from the 46 foot pitching distance of little league equates to something like 95+ on the big field. Unfortunately for this girl, her development as a baseball player will come to a screeching halt once full-on puberty hits and she begins to acquire the shape of a woman. This doesn't diminish her achievements thus far in any way though. I have no quarrel with little league world series taking so much TV time. What else would be on? More Kardashians/Jersey Shore/mindless nonsense no doubt, though admittedly not on ESPN. No slam on the O's, but their pitching doesn't match up well against other likely playoff teams, and pitching is what wins playoff/World Series games.

    yalla chill-i, it is very sad, but true, that the beachbum will miss his first Campout. Cannot be avoided, due to a niece's wedding on the East Coast. Something was bound to happen sooner or later. Hopefully, next year a new streak will be started. I'm very glad YOU are getting to go this year. You certainly appreciate the Campout as much as anybody. It's the best weekend of the year. Oak, Liverpool just paid $26 million for Balotelli today. He's a little out there, but a helluva player. Don't worry about the "s". It's all a bunch of craziness. Just call them "Spurs" all the time like I do. Makes it easy; you don't have to think about it at all. Oaklander & Gene, the A's made the trade for another pitcher, and then stopped scoring. It's tough race, and I'd hate to be in the one game "play-in". For some reason, the O's have been on TV a fair amount lately. Their pitching staff is definitely better than mediocre. They have taken a step up, and it wasn't Ubaldo. The young guys are really pitching well, and not giving up many runs. But, you have to figure after 17 years of losing, the tide had to turn sometime. Hell, the Royals are up there too. I don't know what you guys think about Little League baseball on ESPN all day every day, but it's not for me. And cover of Sports Illustrated for a pitcher who only throws 70 mph? Bah! The O's pitchers are all throwing 90 & up. What's that you say? She' only 13? Ooops, "never mind".

    Yeah Oaklander, what once looked like a lock for the A's is now a matter of some doubt. Tough injury for the Angels' Garrett Richards last night though. Hate to say it, but he could be done for the season. A knee injury for a pitcher is almost as serious as an arm or shoulder injury. Good race in the AL West for sure. Beachbum, there are a number of oddities to the way the Brits treat the language. Yeah, I know it's their language and, as such, I guess they can take whatever liberties they want with it, but there are certainly a lot of odd pronunciations over there. For example, some words, like "out" or "home," get pronunciations that sound like "ite" and "hime." Go figure. Concerning the O's, I'm amazed they've managed to cling to 1st place with what looks like a pretty mediocre pitching staff.

    I may get too nervous about getting the "s" wrong and revert to being a Liverpool fan! I do like their motto "You'll never walk alone". Spurs is good though "To dare is to do". Definitely better than "Beat Arsenal" as a motto. I mean that should be an objective but not a motto. Getting nervous about A's playing lately after such a fabulous season - best record in baseball to barely holding on/down a half game to Angels in AL West. I don't know if I can devote the energy to soccer. Such a problem. I do appreciate the word on ordering gear. I may order a jersey for Mark for Christmas but he is a ManCity fan. If I see anything on fb about Solana Beach I will let you know BB.

    I just want to know why Cramper is not posting a show at the Belly Up in Solana Beach on 12/30. The Belly Up website still shows them playing 12/30, but this website doesn't show it. And the recent email from Cramper didn't show 12/30 either. WTF is up? Gene, the rules for pronunciation with the Brits is something I will never understand. They also refer to the team as a collective, so they will say things that confuse the shit out of me. But, it's true that referring to Hotspurs is a no-no. Frankly, I don't care, but if Oaklander ever goes to England, OR goes to a Spurs game in CA (which happened last year), it's best if she knows what to call the team. I had 6 months of intensive training, and still get it wrong. I was listening to Ade explain the rules of cricket to me whilst (yeah, right?) watching it with him, and had no clue what he was saying or talking about. How about den O's, hon? It's hard to believe the Orioles are in first pace at this time of the year. This hasn't happened since I moved from Baltimore (yes, I "do" get blamed).

    It seems the beachbum is now marketing for Tottenham. BTW, why isn't it OK to call them Hotspurs but it IS OK to call them Spurs? Seems to be a distinction without a difference. Seems a bit like the Red Sox. You can refer to the team collectively as the Red Sox, but it doesn't flow so well when referring to an individual player as a Red Sock. ???
