    Demarrara.
    Mind you, I was a young. buck at the time, so that result was probably aided by the magnificence of youth. And a very sexy gf, who became my wife.
    But, I'd love to have a bottle now...good 'ol PC Fitzhugh.

    Good one.
    An old Cuban guy I new who owned a bodega, where my father spent ridiculous amounts of money on lottery tickets, told me that back on the island, they used to grind up the dried tail of green sea turtles, put it in rum, and they could ball all night long. I laughed, and he told me he'd prove it to me.
    He gave me a packet of it soon after. I put it in rum, and I balled all night.
    So, I never scoff at these cultural aphrodisiacs people speak of.
    My experience with them is 2 for 2 up AB.
    Can't do much better than batting .1000

    oh ok, i couldn't find anything by that spelling
    demerara rums originate in Guyana from what i read
    i'll ask the guy at total wine since he's like an encyclopedia
    wasn't as interested in its erectile qualities as i was in trying a different type of rum
    bottle of rum and a sexy girl for a night is life itself

    Watching the excellent Alanna Rizzo just now broadcasting from her home, in the background is a fireplace, and on the mantle is a framed photo of her and Vinny with his arm around her.
    makes one think how we have lost two of the very best at what they do from representing the Dodgers...one simply from the passage of time, and the other from douchebaggery it seems. Idk. But she certainly landed on her feet, and is a slick professional, top to bottom. Our loss, indeed. With little info forthcoming about it all.
    But I wonder who is next?
    Guessing probably the competent and verbally nimble Joe Davis, which will be sad.

    she said there were numerous unwanted advances over several years
    didn't name anyone
    she officially said it was to be closer to her family

    What a dropoff from Alanna to Watson.

    I was being kind. I didn't want to be called a racist.

    She's awful. You can tell by her questions that she knows nothing about the game

    I have nothing against the Watson kid...I mean why wouldn't she take the gig if offered to her ? But it really falls in the lap of management. How much effort did they put into replacing Alanna, really ? Not too much, imo.

    lots of things really stand out about Watson
    she doesn't do very well preparing her questions and you can tell she's trying really hard not to make mistakes
    lots of opportunities to follow up w a glib comment or observations and she's just over and out
    that and her vocal pacing "HOW did it feel to get that hit there?" up and down like a robot
    that said i'm rooting for her to improve cause my guess is we're stuck w her

    Kike and Fatboy are my prime suspects. Those bastards.

    Kike would be more likely to make a move on the batboy.

    the couple of things i read said it was ex Dodgers which could be either of those guys or Floro etc. who knows
    maybe that was the reason and maybe it wasn't
    maybe the team just wanted a different color analyst who knows
    but it would stand to reason it was probably a typically arrogant athlete that thinks he can poke anything he choses
    have to respect the way she handled it because most would have blown it up into a full blown lawsuit
    guessing there must have been an under the table cash payout to make it go away

    Pretty sure it was someone who no longer plays. Can’t find the article but she mentioned it was someone who was on the Dodgers but is out the league

    Puig?
