    they probably all stole from frank frazetta posters on the walls of the venues they shared with touring pro wrestling circuits.
    speaking of...
    ever wonder how pro wrestling is programmed television (aka fake/controlled) while high school college and olympic wrestling is considered real truly unpredictable sport... yet we don't make that same connection with pro football and pro basketball and pro hockey, etc
    is there a point where if the spectacle of the sport becomes more important for the fans or for the producers that the sport stops catering to the needs of the sport and caters more to the needs of the spectacle over the course of a few decades of rules/financial changes?
    i mean why do some farmers throw pigs blood and bat shit all over their organic crops?
    if you ask them they will say because of the nutrients
    but its really because they get bigger yields of better looking fruits that they can sell for more
    its all about making that little bit more
    there is always a way
    in the past they called people who found a way to make a little bit more by doing shady shit like that pagans
    because pagans would have rituals for how to do all this kind of shadecraft.
    to the christians it looked nasty and evil
    sometimes we criticize those old christians
    i know i have a ton
    but their faith told them that that shit was nasty
    and would probably give the whole town sars and trychinosis.
    when you live close together you can't really be all free love let anyone in
    you gotta let the right one in
    thats why the old towns had weird shit like in the village
    you gotta scare away the types who want to make money sniffing up truffles like one of those pigs or sucking peoples blood like a flying rat.
    the jews make some good points sometimes
    i love bacon and who doesnt like slices of pork products their slices of pizza products?
    but man is the pig a dirty animal
    you gotta have a lot of faith and trust in the chef when you eat pig
    its like eating that poison ecuadorian seabass sushi
    you gotta watch yo ass and protect your sixes!
    before itchy critters start crawling out the tail end of your bottomless pit
    specially right now
    it aint the time to be trifflin with anything other than our own kine
    right buey?
    or should i say boss.
    in spanish it would be bos
    also in latin
    red meat is better for you and generally safer than most any other meat
    when in doubt get the beef
    protect your gut and save your butt!

    So I spent part of today's class doing writing drills. We covered 'idioms' ... and while this might belong on the Lakers thread ... um, no. I'm putting it here.

    I taught them Chickisms. I used this BleacherReport link to teach them just how important Chick Hearn was to basketball, not just LA basketball.

    My top Chickisms... (not in order)

    1. Popcorn Machine
    2. Jello's Jigglin'
    3. Bunny Hop in the Pea Patch
    4. Throws up a prayer...
    5. Mustard off the Hotdog
    6. Heart-Breeaak!
    7. Hand in the Cookie Jar

    I have used these expressions in class over the years, especially when class is almost over and I say, 'Jello's jiggling" or when an answer is wrong, but close, and I say, "HeartBREEEEAK!"

    As much as I miss Vinny, I also miss the heck out of Chick Hearn. The guy was a wizard of words.

    He would alter #4 on Sundays. Throws up a prayer and it's answered on Sunday.

    I always knew he coined slam dunk but I only learned after he died that he coined a dozen others, like dribble drive and yo-yoing up & down.

    The thing about Scully and Hearn was that I never took Scully for granted, because I knew the guy was a poet laureate.

    It is a shame that I took Chick for granted because he also hosted Bowling for Dollars. I just didn't know any better. Damn shame.

    Been said many times, but Southern Calif was a gold mine for great voices with Chick, Vin, Bob Miller and Dick Enberg.

    yeah Chick always complained about his pay and probably why he did bowling for dollars
    all i know is my family used to take these long camping/driving trips and i had my 9v transistor radio plastered against the side of my head listening
    he might as well have been God to me
    i'd read the paper the next day and look at pictures and felt like i was at that game

    Everygame man. I would do the same thing.
    Shit I even would record vin later when I got a little tape deck.
    I had tapes with music intermixed with dodger baseball called by vin scully.
    My experience was similar even though im a generation after you because being Mexicans our experience back then was often the white mans hand me downs from a previous generation.
    Maybe I had your transistor.
    I spent a few summers up where you are from in the 80's combing and riding horses and cleaning stalls at some ranch my mom worked at.
    Hmmm....

    Mine was pretty similar but faded blue with a kiss FM sticker on it.
    It didn't have FM on it though.
