    it occurs to me that the sum total of advertising campaigns anymore is just to beat the living shit out of us w repetition
    kind of like those radio spots that tell you the phone number to call 5 times in a row at the end
    the billy mays and mike pindells of the world smash you in the face w their annoying crap but its the car and insurance ones that are incessant
    there were those lincoln ones last year that went on for months before disappearing after Christmas
    now there's one of a kid in the back of a chevy bolt asking "dad when is the future?" and it doesn't matter what channel you're on it in every sequence
    mostly notice when sitting w mom and its always muted but is this tactic actually working?
    makes me want to never buy a product from any company working so hard to fuck w my head

    ok so the gf's kid going to a high school football game what can be more American ?
    looking to waste some time and talk my gf and i end up in an old school Mexican bar in Granada Hills
    having a drink and watching the SD/PHI game off to the right of the bar so its a little awkward and people start filling in spaces looking for drinks
    one of the guys excuses his intrusion and i'm like np just trying to watch that game over there since thats the only place i can view it atm
    he's like oh wow who are you rooting for?
    i'm like it was the Dodgers but i'm not sure i just hate Houston and we engage on baseball
    just talking like boys i'm like i hate davey and think he's an equity hire and everyone hates basstros
    he's in total agreement that he's a minstrel and says out loud LA should have 3 or 4 championships if it wasn't for him and everyone knows he's lame
    i think he's just ordering a drink but we're locked in and there's some large Mexicans hovering around me and the gf but whatever i'm on their turf
    i'm trying to recall this as i'm writing it but one of those big guys says "he used to play baseball" sure ok but beyond a handsome fit dude he's small
    "he played pro?" whats his last name? and the cousin can't remember so there's laughter and people are laughing
    dude is like hey man i exposed your secret! and this guy is like what that i'm gay?
    shit picks up and quickly i understand i'm having a conversation w Marco Estrada and his close family
    i have no idea who that is and he's as cool and humble as the day is long and we're just talking baseball
    the guy was an all star in 16 and had a short career i found out later but idk , he made the show!
    so now i just want to listen to what he has to say and this young man tells me so many things so i'll just highlight
    meeting Vin was a moment he was shaking and the fact that Vin knew who he was and his name had tears in his eyes as he related it
    he said no one in baseball has any respect for manfag
    Uecker was the facilitator of him meeting Vin and dude was telling some stories
    we talked about old school vs analytics and the current playoff situation as well as his
    pitching and playing against Pujols who the cousin was especially proud of
    said Pujols was all about respect and when i asked him if he thought he got some fat pitches this year he smiled and said he might have deserved it
    kind of hard to describe how cool and how short he was but glad i stopped in that spot tonight
    viva familia Estrada y viva los Doyers!
    btw he was raised in Sylmar and not a fan of LA
    think this took place in a matter of 15 minutes and i left shit out
    oh and he would always tip his cap and once Pujols elbowed him of the base!
    too much fun and i got laid

    As I passed Amazon, the screen read " tell me a joke about baseball"..so I asked it.
    It says " a study shows watching sports can be good for your health...
    unless you are a fan of the Houston Astros".
    Just now.

    Swear to God.

    nothing like waking at 130am to my dogs in a death fight
    even though they're separated i know instantly its both of them and i think they're at each other once again so i bolt out to find them involved w and adult raccoon
    both are taking shots from the coon and its fluid like a ball of raging hair and fangs but i only care about neutralizing the coon
    i should have grabbed a hatchet or knife but i grab my pellet gun and try to shoot the thing but miss and then start trying to bludgeon the coon w the rifle end
    no reasoning w the dogs of course and the coon runs up a large fern type tree by my room and has to be injured bad
    both dogs have the requisite bloody snouts and mouth but eyes and other functions appear ok
    grabbed a .22 and tried to locate that bitch in the tree but its too dense and i can't see it although i hear it and know its there
    has to be close to mortally wounded if blood is any indication so i'm just sitting in the dark waiting for my chance to end its life
    can see one of my girls must have blasted through the window screen to join the other and glad something worse didn't happen
    and to think it was the skunk i was worried about and have a trap set for
    getting too old for this shit
    can't believe how easy these dogs launch themselves out the window ffs
    couple of trips to the vet tomorrow and a fat check is my reality

    Sorry to read that Devil. Hope they are OK...
    From reading your Akita adventures for a few years now, sounds like they, apart from their spectacular beauty,are a handful as a particular breed.
    Good luck and let us know how you/ they make out.

    still that prey drive is something to be reckoned with

    Primitive owner..ha! I'm picturing Fred Flintstone.
    ..Like you, I couldn't live without dogs either. The older I get, the more I feel and realize the gift that they truly are.
    But no matter how I love them, or they've loved me, I never forget that when I look deeply into those brown eyes that reflects the ages, lies a wolf.
    And that makes the attachment even stronger.
