    In the "payback is a bitch" department, I'll link this story for you all as a throwback to my 11-year old self, when the guy that this story is about kicked the living shit out of me on a baseball diamond ...

    https://voiceofoc.org/2022/07/anahe...charges-could-face-decades-in-federal-prison/

    Todd Ament was a much bigger kid than me & I was a butterball fat kid. My buddy Ricky was a butterball fat Mexican kid that Ament told to "get off our field, you fucking spic!" I thought I was being noble when I stuck up for Ricky, but when Ament punched me in the face, jumped on me, & pounded me like a drum .... Well, I basically hated that day for a long time. Did the right thing - got a bloody nose, kicked in the balls, & a hunk of hair ripped out of my scalp. Point to Ament ...

    45 years later, Todd Ament the bully fuckstick is headed to bang-you-in-the-ass federal prison, where a few Latinx persons - aka some "beaners who like white boys" - will hopefully give it to him in the ass ...

    Anyway ... Every perro has his dia, bitches.

    Payback is sweet.

    basically a death sentence
    sounds like a real pos and i think that deserves a Finski fly out to LA for a couple of days so we can go visit him
    i'm totally down to do it and would love to laugh in that fucktards face
    i could be the stranger w evidence to exonerate him and you could be my attorney in disguise!
    pretty sure we could just go and visit
    maybe its different now or wherever he's incarcerated but i visited a guy who worked for me and it was just show up and he came out to the window

    Being new to Kentucky still, I listen a lot to these guys around here who know the culture of basketball and sports in this region. I'm still learning the area, but I've been a sports guy my whole life, and many of these guys don't know shit about the West coast. So I represent as best I'm able.

    I spent a goodly chunk of today's lunch break with three old time white guy teachers and coaches - all older than me. They all knew about Vin Scully, but only one of them knew about Chick Hearn.

    But when I started to tell them about Jim Healy, I got a lot of blank stares. All I could think was how listening to that guy's radio show in LA/OC in the 70s, 80s, and early 90s was about as close to being plugged into the sports world as I was ever going to get. The guy wrote some of the best stuff and did some of the best work as anybody ever did in radio. And just like growing up listening to Vinny and Chick, it's spoiled the shit out of me and us because the fact is, it was never going to get better than those guys.

    This site has most of his best sound bites.

    Rome and his clones.
    Catholic government and protestant governments.

    So after a couple of months where does the devil go when not in Rome?

    In the 90s I used to listen to a wacky late night show that would low-key mock Rome and his clones daily. It was called The Sports Gods. One of the hosts eventually got fired for all the mocking of the star morning host. The other guy cleaned up his act and become a regular host on the radio and is probably still working.
    Anyone remember that show?

    Watching the Mets Old Timers Day intros, Bobby Valentine ( whose hair is white now) , when introduced, came out with a jet black mustache glued or taped on his face.
    I don't know how many people got it, but does anybody else remember when he got tossed from a game as Met manager, and sneaked back into the dugout in a Groucho Marx type disguise ?
    It's still one of the flat out funniest things I've ever seen in baseball ever.

    That's some great managing.
    Who wouldn't want to play for a manager like that.

    Btw this was a bad take.
    Obviously.
    Now for a worse take...
    I initially thought the person that died was Portia.
    And was like... Ellen needs some sympathy right about now cuz of all the bad press.
    But it was a stupid comment/take either way.

    Whoops, dang frontal lobe failed me again!

    Can't remember the last time my pup, lil miss daisy, pissed where she shouldn't have - been giving her good girl treats for at least a couple months now every time she goes where I want her to go - I find it absolutely hilarious that she takes a long drink of water every time right before she pees so she can start the brewing process of the next piss for the next treat

    Yeah my freya was raised by socialists who kept her in a cage when she was inside the house but also pampered her with all kinds of toys, treats, designer kibble, training, and professional grooming.

    Now she eats regular kibble mixed with wet food but I give her a big bowl of meat a few days a week.
    And she goes out and kills rodents and chases the coyotes chasing the deer.
    She has my old queen bed since it's too soft for me now.
    She never pees in the house.
    At first she peed like once a week for like 2 months.
    It might have been a dominance thing with the cats. It would only happen at night.
    But since she been running in the wild and her pampering is not so chaotically nice she has become great at waiting to go outside. She won't even poop there. She waits till I decide to open the gate for the yard and goes out to shit by the power pole.

    Moral of my long ass story I'm cutting for time is that when you are a socialist parent with all the treats for good behaviour the little brats grow up into the perfect conniving devious little rats you are sorta programming them to be when they eventually evolve and gain a little more sentience.
    Which is what happens when you program something.
    It gains more and more intelligence.
    Until it can see through the weak ploys of socialism.
    And learns it's ultimate conclusion.
    Rebellion.

    You need the cut that off at the pass.

    Oh wait it I think I read it wrong lol.
    She DOES pee where she supposed to.
    Good girl.

    I need to do some more of that positive reinforcement.
    I hand out treats kinda randomly.
    Probably not good.
    I don't know how to raise a pet properly.
    I think I used to give them way too much freedom.
    Either way I probably need reading glasses or something.
    Been misreading plenty lately.
