Re: Random Thoughts Again

I am obviously up early this morning. Mrs. Lion and I went to the adventure park at the Virginia Aquarium last night. The have these rope ladders and zip lines strung through the trees between the two buildings that is very Swiss Family Robinson like. Teachers can get three hours free this week so s...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I am! Clarence was from around here and we tried several time to get him to visit the school of music and fleet band to do a clinic or something but never got it worked out. He was something else, but not as technically solid as Lou. But at that level, it’s not a big deal.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

You are correct, they were all monster musicians. Some of them struggled to act, which I find almost as funny as the lines. But the music was real, for sure. I am pretty sure the scene with Hooker was before the music store scene. Just cause you are getting old doesn't mean you shouldn't watch it ag...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

As a saxophonist who grew up having to endure questions like, "Can you play some Kenny G?" Blue Lou is an ICON. That was not a Caps Lock error, he is a beast! I tired to emulate his sound and range; kind of got close to the sound but cant even imagine playing as high as he does! I am envio...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

The Little League World Series starts today. I enjoy watching these kids play, and think Williamsport does a great job in general. They started having a MLB game at the nearby minor league ballpark last year and the Phillies take on the Mets this Sunday. I think Pittsburgh was in town last year and ...

Re: Politics

The word irony doesn't even scratch the surface, in my opinion. I understood the question regarding no longer being in a position to need to know. Something I learned today as the talking heads were discussing this development is that, at least in previous administrations, these guys would talk to e...

Re: Politics

I have been saying that for years, Crowbar. A viable centrist or moderate party would be huge.

On another note, Trump revoked Brennan’s security clearance. I’m sure there was due cause and this isn’t a diversion from anything else...

Re: 2018 Preseason Thread

So, the last game for the foreseeable future at Pitt has sold out. The last time that happened was, well, the last time we played in the Ketchup Bowl. The Pitt AD said that there will really be no way to know if Penn State fans outnumber the home crowd. I think we will know. I would love to see Coac...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

_dad mentioned watching Cops. I watch LivePD on the occasional Friday or Saturday evening when there is nothing better to watch. For the most part, this accounts for my run ins with law enforcement (aside from the occasional voice mail that police are coming to get me if I don't pay some fine). Whil...
