    have to turn a lot of it off especially when they try to convey cliches and repeat themselves
    always the same isn't it?
    people just want to be a part of it

    Interesting FYI, (perhaps...)
    The Mahatma had an extremely poor ability to smell. Some kind of ofactory disease or whatever.
    He also believed in using human feces as fertilizer...and did. All around his home.
    When people came to interview him, many were totally taken by the odor, and vomited.

    well that would likely count me amongst his detractors
    although you'd have to throw me on the same pile for what i did in sri lanka and i know i've told the story before but i'll try to keep it short
    strange land, friends of the family, incredibly spicy food, long farewell and i'm not making it to the hotel in time
    locate the "bathroom" to find a toilet and a hose hanging from a corner in a large room and nothing else
    panic has already set in so i instantly return to the locals and my family milling about in the foyer
    try to make a quick acquisition of all potential ass paper in my wifes purse as undercover as possible but it doesn't matter
    not one of the 15 or so people standing around is talking any longer and all eyes are focused on me as i once again disappear into "the room"
    relief is instant and as i sit there i consider using the hose in the corner but what if it's their shower and i offend them
    besides what am i supposed to do get undressed completely wash my ass and redress???
    no i wipe and toss shit paper out the window like Gandi would of and never look back
    somewhere on that little island there are people retelling the story behind a bottle of arrack and i hope they laugh a lot since people are literally starving to death there now
    sorry for hijacking the Vin thread

    Enberg was mentioned earlier and I've seen this before but it belongs here.

    Just a great 10 minutes.

    Loved that.

    Enberg was overshadowed in the LA market by Vin and Chick, but he was excellent in his own right with the Rams, Angels and UCLA.

    anyone remember the 70’s show “sports challenge” hosted by enberg?
    one of my favorites and, sadly, too short-lived…

    love that the storm turned out to be a fire
    strikes me how the art of communicating has been completely lost
    to the point where having a conversation w a stranger is like salvation these days

    The 2013 season was one of my favorite seasons.

    First time in my life I actually thought we'd win the WS.

    Amazing comeback vs the Rays

    That they did it against Fraudny made it all the sweeter.

    Vin referred to Dodger Stadium as the Magic Castle throughout the 42-8 run.

    Man, that season was a blast. I used to love walking late at night and listen to Kevin Kennedy on Dodger Talk as we kept climbing back up in the standings.

    It was one of those seasons where you remember where you were for most of those moments. So fun.
