I don't care about this Super Bowl. I'm not a fan of either team, nor does either fill me with the kind of loathing one has for Dallas or New England. I was hoping Buffalo would make it, or Detroit, but neither did, so this is a big Meh.

The Mahomes myth as superman lives on and this SB is no exception.... if Niner D can hold the edges and pressure QB they will have a very good chance to win this game.... 27-23 Niners in a nail bitter. 😀

Today is my gang's 34th Annual SB Party. I've hosted in about 14 times, leading the pack. It all started, not because of the Giants being in SBXXV - even though that didn't hurt, it was because one of us invited a few of us to watch the Championship game a week earlier, but he had no sodas, chips, cookies. Well, just having moved into my grandparents apartment, and them being snowbirds, I had the space and no one was going to say no to me. It was simple back then - cookies, soda, chips, and order 3 or 4 pies back then. That first year, I paid for everything (got some money back for the pizza) but I …

Happy Super Bowl Sunday to all!

Personally, I’ve been a Niners fan since Joe Montana left Notre Dame and became the starting QB midway through the season back in 1980. So, I’ve enjoyed the highs of the Montana & Steve Young runs of the 80’s and early 90’s. But I’ve also endured the now 29 year drought, that should have ended in 2020 had Shanahan managed the team better with a 10 point lead.

I think San Francisco has a better roster now than in 2020 (Purdy > Jimmy G; CMC > Mostert; Aiyuk > Bourne). I also believe that the Chiefs offense is not as good as they were back then (other than the additional experience of Mahomes). Therefor…

I was in Hong Kong on for that 1991 playoff game, which started about 4 a.m. local time. I set my alarm clock and watched every minute until 7:00 a.m., when the game cut off abruptly with the Giants down 13-12 with only a couple of minutes remaining, and local educational TV came on. Remember, Children, this is before the internet, and I also don't have a radio to try to get the U.S. Armed Forces feed. I am beside myself.


Finally, I get a bright idea: There's an English-language phone book in the room, so I look up the number for the local Associated Press office and call. I got a guy with an American accent, and I expla…

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
