  1. I remember several years ago when Uncle Bud proposed a radical realignment where the AL was basically the western division and the NL was the eastern division or the other way around. The AL west would have been Seattle, Arizona, and the 5 California clubs. Or maybe it was the NL. It was shot down so fast I forgot the specifics of which league was where.
  2. I had to dig through years of Facebook posts, finally found the one where my cousin and I argued if there would be a female doctor. Took some doing and searching, but 4 years after that argument, I guess I finally won. I don't hold grudges well, do I?
  3. This is for sports logos used for other purposes. This is a tv producer in Southern California and I think her shirt advertising her show is using a familiar, if old, logo...
  4. And again, they were going off tonight. My cat is terrified (she doesn't like loud noises, but on the 4th I expect it and come home early from my friends fourth BBQ to comfort her) and I have work in the morning. I'm debating whether or not to call the cops or just refuse to pay my homeowner's association bill because they are obviously not enforcing their own rules.
  5. They just said on the tv news that the upcoming solar eclipse was a once in a lifetime event. Does this mean I'm going to die before August 21, because I remember one in the NW in the spring of 1979 when I was 9 years old.
  6. It was thrown out eventually because of that (you can't sue for injuries in combat), but that didn't stop him from trying.
  7. Aho is actually a popular surname in Finland, but Sebastian is not a common Finnish name, so it is quite surprising to see two of them. I have quite an uncommon name, so I was surprised when I got a call for smzimbabwe, and he said, you can't be smzimbabwe, you don't sound black.
  8. I'm as patriotic as the next guy, but apparently, Independence Day is now Independence Week. People have been shooting off fireworks in my neighborhood since the 30th of June through last night, and I wouldn't be surprised if more go off tonight.
  9. Given today's litigious society, will her/his family get to sue the Japanese for compensation? I only ask because a friend of my grandfather's tried to sue the Japanese for the injuries he sustained during the battle of Iwo Jima.
  10. I don't understand most of the lyrics, but I've been listening to this one over and over the last week or so...
  11. It's where I first saw him, and have always associated that jersey with him even though I have his Vancouver #16 jersey hanging in the closet right now...
  12. I see nothing wrong with this...
  13. I may like several bands, but not all of their songs, so I can't listen to a whole album/cd/whatever. I make my own "greatest hits" compilation, so I only have to listen to the songs I do like.
  14. After watching this, and seeing a prior comment, it suddenly occurred to me that we did play this on rainy days during gym in 6th-8th grade. The teacher insisted he made it up and called it "Wallyball" (his name was Wally), but now that I think of it, it was basically the same, and played indoors on rainy days. When I got to high school, the sport played inside was volleyball, which I hate playing with a passion.
