  • Why Sports Matter, A Flashback

    by coldwarrior ( 105 Comments › )
    Filed under Open thread at February 25th, 2018 - 2:30 am

    One of the twins decided that she is going to play softball this year instead of following her older sister into cheer-leading. I have quietly nudged her in this direction as she is athletic of build and is more suited to the diamond than to the pyramid.

    So, today we went to a national sports chain and bought some gear. She got cleats, batting gloves, a bat, balls, headbands, bag, and a leather fielder’s glove that fits her hand, she was so proud carrying all of that out of the store.. I bought a larger leather fielder’s glove for me that she will use as she grows (hey, bonus, already broken in for her). The kid is outfitted. We then all went and had a great pizza at our favorite place and talked of what to plant in the garden.

    When we got home late and they insisted that they weren’t tired,and then promptly crashed out on the couches.

    Quietly, so as not to wake any of the echoes, I went into the attic and retrieved my long  forgotten gloves, one from HS and one from little league. Going up to gather these relics reminded me that my impact on baseball was minimal, I was aggressive base running, very solid hitting, and an accurate fastball (even at little league). There are twelve stitches on my right elbow where eventually the ulnar nerve had to be released and one of the tendons shaved to relieve the repetitive damage of faster and faster pitched balls. I didn’t have much of a curve, I’d just throw at your head if you got near my plate and put you in fear then throw either away or at your  ribs. All of this followed me up the steps…then I had the gloves in my hand. I hadn’t seen them in 15 years; put up and forgotten in lanolin and linseed waiting for the next ball player. Waiting for the next son to throw lighting and strike fear in the batters.

    I have all girls. Strong Girls. I prayed for all our babies to be healthy and they were, i didn’t care the sex. Now they are starting to come into their own.

    All leather fielding gloves need to be conditioned before play. So, i took my artifacts and the two new leathers onto the back porch with some linseed oil, lanolin, and twine and balls…prep makes the glove pliable and predictable. It is a process.

    I lit a San Lotano Oval and got to work; Great tobacco from Esteli, and a nice tequila as I thought that I would ease into the night. NOPE. One whiff of cigar and linseed and leather and I was instantly transported 40 years back to my childhood’s front porch. No kidding, sucked back like thorough a straw. Grandad smoking a cigar, Dad showing me how to rub oil into the glove…discussions on how to run the bases…KDKA Lanny Frattare for play by play in the background, Grampy telling me to always throw inside and hard if the batter dared to take the edge.

    I had tears, it was good to hear Grampy’s voice in my head.

    And So It Continues.

     

    PLAY BALL!

      it’s cool being a dad

      the girls archery team took 2nd in their tourny last night
      and she shot a 252

      now they are heading for state,national and world tourny

      some dads are afraid for their babies to grow up, not me,
      I love watching her become the smart, confidant leader that
      she is meant to be

      Delta must be trying to alienate the public. First they dis the NRA and now Olympic gold medalists.
      United is right there with them on the NRA. So two crap airlines that can’t keep schedules or their
      equipment in repair get on the corporate moral high horse.

      This helps explain the craven conduct by the Broward County deputies during the school shooting, and the deflection
      by the smarmy sheriff. The Obama Education and Justice Departments put in guidelines to discourage on site
      law enforcement. Just mentioned in the memo is that twice as many black students were subject to law enforcement.
      Arrests went down, crime did not but arrests did.

      @ RIX:

      Know who else was a beneficiary of that policy in the Broward County schools?

      Trayvon Martin. That’s why he didn’t end up in prison when he was caught with burglary tools and a bunch of stolen jewelry on campus.

      Instead, he was just expelled. Then he went to live with his father, and we know how that turned out.

      That’s interesting, and now it makes sense. I would like the Media to talk about that, but I doubt that they will
      with the exception to FNC.

      Jake Tapper got Sheriff Israel to admit that he knew about his deputy refusing to enter the building PRIOR
      to the CNN Town Hall. Tapper continues to hammer him and the Sheriff is getting really defensive.
      Good on Tapper, it surprises me.

      dont let the door hit you in the ass, bitch.

      Charen, who worked for the Reagan administration and former GOP Rep. Jack Kemp (N.Y.), wrote Sunday that many lifelong Republicans no longer feel welcome in the GOP. Instead, she said, CPAC invited speakers who align with Trump’s views, such as controversial ex-sheriff David Clarke Jr. and French far-right politician Marion Maréchal-Le Pen.

      Trump also spoke at the event, giving what at times mirrored a campaign speech, featuring attacks on his political rivals and a “lock her up” chant at the mention of his former Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

      “For traditional conservatives, the past two years have felt like a Twilight Zone episode,” Charen wrote. “Politicians, activists and intellectuals have succumbed with numbing regularity, betraying every principle they once claimed to uphold. But there remains a vigorous remnant of dissenters.”

      They’ve been arguing over the number for days, as if it makes any difference. Defenders of the sheriff are claiming that it was 23, not 39. Now it looks like it might be 45.

      Does it really matter? Once you get past 4 or 5, there’s clearly a problem.

      Learning to skate and play ice hockey not only gave me confidence and fraternity, but opened the door to relationships and networking.

      I was an introverted “dork” before I learned to play hockey.

      I buried my head in books and was regularly picked on as I was a bit maladjusted and socially awkward.

      I failed in every sport my Dad tried to involve me in, even though I was a fast runner, but started skating on my own when my school went on strike. Late bloomer in athletics as I was already 14.

      I can also say that once I started playing hockey, I become much more adept at all other sports which also gave a common bond and common goal with boys my age.

      Also girls became more friendly…

      VIDEO: Hero German Shepherd Shot, Beaten Defending Teenager from Home Invaders
      A two-year-old German Shepherd went above and beyond to protect his owner after he took bullets and blows defending his best friend from home invaders.

      The 16-year-old owner, Javier Mercado, hid in his closet with his dog Rex as burglars ransacked his Des Moines, Iowa, home Wednesday, KWCH reported.

      “As soon as he heard the window shatter, he ran downstairs full charge,” Mercado told KOMO. “And then I just heard a bunch of barking and struggling, and then one of the guys screaming, ‘The dog! The dog bit me! Get the dog!’”

      Rex, sensing there was danger in the house, ran downstairs to confront the burglars—who ruthlessly beat him.

      As the burglars continued to pilfer through the house, they approached the room where the teen was hiding. Although Rex had little strength left in him, he pounced on the burglars.

      “I think if it wasn’t for him, I probably wouldn’t be standing here today,” Mercado said.

      The hero German Shepherd was shot three times trying to take down the burglars.

      Once the burglars heard police sirens, they fled the scene. When the officers arrived at the home, they rushed Rex to a local veterinarian, expecting the worst because they thought the animal was dead.

      Doctors gave the dog pain medication, wound care, and antibiotics while placing him in intensive care. The German Shepherd is now recovering and in stable condition.

      A family member set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to pay for Rex’s veterinary bills. The page raised $58,161 as of Sunday afternoon—more than five times the page’s $10,000 goal.

      That’s a good dog. I know Mrs. RW’s Shepherd/Chow/Rottie mix would have destroyed anyone who bothered her. Lucy (aka ‘Lucy-fur’) tolerated me, but kept a close eye on me too. She’d growl, but Karen could stop it with just a word. God help the stranger that broke in though.

      I think the Pit we rescued a few years ago would have been a great guard dog too.

      He’s getting more than just tiresome. He’s on Twitter telling people to sell their Fedex stock because they do business with the NRA. He’s working overtime to stretch his 15 minutes. Not bad for a kid who essentially didn’t “SURVIVE” anything. He was in a completely different building during the tragic incident, and was never in harm’s way. And he’s so traumatized that he can’t go back to school because he’s too busy posing for year book pictures at CNN.

      Hogg will in a very short time outlive his usefulness. If, for instance, Fedex or another one of the companies he decides to target is a big advertiser on networks, or a big Democrat donor, regardless of so-called “affiliation” with the NRA – their CEO is going to be on the horn to someone in power at CNN and the DNC and this showboating little famewhore is going to find the doors slammed in his face faster than they did for Cindy Sheehan.

      It is. I wish the article had talked about what she did about students she thought were at risk, how she got them included in things, etc.

      Another thing I’d like to know – there is almost always one person who is the genesis of the outcast movement. Whether it’s a mean girl or a boy bully, usually somebody gets a leadership role socially out of making somebody else a loser. How those people are handled would be interesting to know.

      This by way of saying Page is a pretty thin read to get a FISA warrant on.

      I’m sorry but he has a point. It’s not the dress/skirt thing in a literal sense, but carrying while dressed like a girl is a pain. If it weren’t my my photog vest – which I got over 25 yrs ago at Banana Republic and can’t find a duplicate now – it would be even harder. There is an entire industry dedicated to purses that will hold a weapon. He’s not terribly articulate, but he is landing on a cultural issue that is not demeaning to women but points up the fact that far too many females in this country are never acclimated to guns. I am VERY fortunate in the father I had.

      So is Hogg even a student at that school? I’ve read conflicting reports that he graduated in 2015 from a California high school and is now a “crisis actor” (Remember Fatima from LGF days?) employed by the Pedestal group.

      P-Funk!

      Legendary funk music pioneer George Clinton rejected the idea of so-called culture appropriation in music and pop culture.

      When asked during a recent interview with Rolling Stone what he thought about “white artists doing black music?” Clinton said he’s borrowed creative ideas from iconic bands like the Beatles and insists that artists attempt to replicate what they admire about their peers.

      “I’d bite off the Beatles, or anybody else. It’s all one world, one planet and one groove. You’re supposed to learn from each other, blend from each other, and it moves around like that,” the Grammy-winner said.

      The Parliament-Funkadelic founder’s five-decade career makes him an authority on the subject cultural appropriation — or the concept of taking black culture and profiting from it — which has rocked revered pop stars from Justin Timberlake to Justin Bieber.

      “You see that rocket ship leave yesterday? We can maybe leave this planet. We gonna be dealing with aliens. You think black and white gonna be a problem? Wait till you start running into motherfuckers with three or four dicks! Bug-eyed motherfuckers!” the 1997 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee said. “They could be ready to party, or they could be ready to eat us. We don’t know, but we’ve got to get over this shit of not getting along with each other.”

      In real terms, it doesn’t mean anything. Data storage in the terahertz range is flimflamary gobbledygook. Until you can get SONOI gate arrays that can function in the terahertz range you are not getting data storage in the terahertz range. Perovskite oxides are capable of magnetoresistance at terahertz frequencies, or translated to geek speak from scientific technojargon, Perovskite oxides can flip their magnetic polarity in the terahertz range.

      An analogy would be the vibrations of a quartz crystal, the Perovskite oxides can be flipped back and forth from positive to negative trillions of times per second. This is magnetic storage technology such as is used in Standard Harddrives.

      Its flimflamary gobbledygook because, their are no silicon dioxide nitro-dialectics gate arrays capable of switching fast enough to utilize magnetoresistance at terahertz ranges.

      Surprisingly, in every computer CPU and memory storage device there are a surprisingly few number of physical components involved. Most important of them, are the various gate arrays. AND, OR, NOT, NAND, NOR, EXOR and EXNOR gates. All logic, and consequently all date encoding is based on the combinations of states these gates are capable of producing.

      Magnetoresistance storage amounts to pages of complex gate array states. The ability to store and read back those pages of gate array states faster than the gate arrays can process that data basically makes the terahertz frequency storage worthless since nothing would be able to process the data at those speeds.

      Now, if they could find a way to make the Perovskite oxides into the dielectric oxides used to make gates and oscillators and the various other components while still retaining the terahertz switching frequency range then what they are talking about would be pretty damned significant.
