Very fitting! Thanks for the wonderful memories and wearing the pinstripes proud. Dramatic and so clutch until the very end. You will be missed. What a way to out go and close out a spectacular career!
Feeling so rejected right now. I certainly am dejected and lost. What is clear is that I do not know what the Lord’s plans are for me in this life. All I know is that I have to go through so much rejection, failure and disappointment along its way. It’s been really hard. It would be hard for anyone. I need things to move along. Feel it is long overdue. Only subtle breakthoughs. Just does not seem to happen for me.
Maybe it’s because more than 95% of the time I’ve had access to cable television, I did not have the premium channels as well. Or perhaps I am just too busy. But I’ve never watched Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Breaking Bad and I think I’ve totally missed the whole anime genre all together. In my younger days, I would have been all over that. Television was my constant companion then. More likely, it is because I’m getting old…certainly in regards to the anime. Now, would I date and go dancing with a girl like this? (lol!) I kid. ;)
I do not get girls with a lot of tattoos or those, in general, who choose to cover their bodies with them. I suppose smaller tattoos are acceptable but not preferred. A few girls I have dated have them. Having a lot of tattoos is a whole another story with me. I just believe your body is sacred and a temple. If God intended for us to have tatoos or piercing all over our bodies, He would have painted them on us. Instead, He tells us not to like it says in Leviticus 19:28 (NKJV) “You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the Lord.”
Note: Levy Tran (pictured here) is cute, though. I must say.
I need a vacation badly. I have for some time. Want to get away from my boss and take a little break from family too. My case analysis paper for my graduate course needs to be completed first. Then, I can plan something. I hate flying. Perhaps I will take the train somewhere while catching up on some leisure reading along the way. It is all so overdue. Time to start thinking about me and taking care of myself. It’s time for a vacation!
Manny Pacquiao dominates Timothy Bradley in the second half of the fight to reclaim the WBO Welterweight Championship and, in so doing, hands Bradley the first loss of his professional career and avenges his controversial loss to him. This time, the judges got it right!
I was at the April 2010 Anaheim Comic Con. After hours of fun and entertainment, I had to take a quick restroom break. So, while taking a minute to do what I had to do, a big old burly man walks up and uses the urinal next to mine. He glares over at me, smiles and says, “yeah, it’s me.. how ya doing?” I don’t remember what I said in response but I know my initial reaction was ‘Wow! Ed Asner?!? He’s still alive?! What’s he doing at a comic con?’ (He was there to help promote the Up Movie where he played the lead animated character.) Pretty funny meeting such an iconic TV and film star like Ed Asner inside a restroom. I remember thinking at that moment that it’s a fair bet he has to be the oldest person working in Hollywood. Then, in walks Mickey Rooney. Lol! The three of us talked briefly and I let the two of them continue conversing. Nice, friendly people both. Pretty surreal. RIP #mickeyrooney
hello sir how good was sugar ray robinson and could he have beaten floyd mayweather jr
It is really unfair to compare the fighters of different eras and we, of course, will never actually know. With this said, however, it is only natural to compare current greats with the legends of the past. I think Mayweather is head and shoulders above most when it comes to intelligence, ring savvy and generalship. I think only Ray Leonard was at Floyd’s level in the modern era of welterweights. Ray Robinson would need to utilize a busy jab and that constant right cross/hook hybrid to the body to be effective because Floyd’s head would be too elusive. Money would counter and score often, but Sugar Ray would have been busier and his power would rattle Floyd at times to get him into his defensive shell more than he ever had before. I like Robinson by close decision. I also felt Leonard, Thomas Hearns and possibly…just possibly Donald Curry would have beaten Mayweather at welterweight.
My mother told me that my father had once told her that we are all late bloomers in our family, including our extended family. This may be true. I certainly believe this of myself. Even the things I am good at now did not come naturally. It took a little more work and time to improve.
If this was indeed the last time Yuna Kim puts on a pair of skates for a competition, she goes out as still the reigning ‘Queen of Ice’ in spite of her disappointing and shocking second place finish in Sochi to Russia’s Adelina Sotnikova last night. With the pressure of being the last skater to perform in the free skate, Kim again performed near flawlessly in the biggest stage as she did when she won Olympic gold four years ago in Vancouver. It was an artistically beautiful program that many felt was enough to earn her a back-to-back gold. Although she fell short this evening, she performed like the great champion she is.
After the award ceremony, a tearful but respectful Yuna Kim said “this is my last competition.” It was a stellar figure skating career and she will forever remain the pride of South Korea. Thank you for all the wonderful memories.
This Winter Olympics is suppose to showcase the grace and beauty of the games’ new media darling, Gracie Gold. Gold certainly has the looks, personality and the name to turn heads and become the American Sweetheart of these Olympics. She skated brilliantly last night as part of the newly created team competition in figure skating. Her personal best performance helped Team U.S.A. capture a bronze medal in this inaugural event.
The world was also introduced to the 15-year old Russian phenom, Julia Lipnitskaia. With the maturity, poise and elegance beyond her years, Lipnitskaia electrified the crowd with a stellar performance that blew away Gold’s individual score and completely stole the show at the competition.
The young prodigy is now the talk of the games and some are predicting Lipnitskaia will have a solid chance to medal in the women’s individual competition that is just 10 days away.
She will have her work cut out for her, however, as she will be competing against the likes of reigning 2010 Olympic champion Yuna Kim from South Korea, and two-time world champion Mao Asada from Japan. It will be fun to watch. The ice is about to heat up!
So, I must admit to having a new crush at work. I have been at my current job for nearly seven years and this would be my first there. I believe I have had one at nearly every job I’ve had the past 10 or more years. Actually, it is more like the past 14 years. But this is all it is. Harmless because it will not go any further nor will there be any foolish intent by me. She is spoken for. I have also paid dearly in the past for my attempt at an office romance. I have failed miserably. I hope I have not made it too obvious to her. End of topic.
