April 30, 2008 | By

So our Suns playoffs dreams are squashed again, again by the evil aliens, known as Spurs, from planet Hoopenite.  But look on the bright side.  We have a red hot baseball team in town.  Switch the orange to red and come on down. -Mark

Walking distance from my house and better than my mom’s home cooking.  Yum yum.  I’m stuffed.  Dine in or take out.  Check out their web site.

Yes, I ate the underdog tonight.  OK, that’s not the whole truth.  I actually ate two “underdog” hot dogs at The Roosevelt Tavern at 816 N Third St just South of Roosevelt St.  (Third is a one way heading South.)  They have great beers on tap.  The “Arrogant Bastard”, a San Diego micro brew has… Read more

I do not like the San Antonio Spurs

April 22, 2008 | By

And I hate how long it takes to drive across Texas, even just the pan handle.  May all the Spurs be forced to drive across Texas and back after they blow their two game lead and lose the series.  Shniffff Shniffff Shnifff.  (I don’t believe in curses, but just in case.) -Mark

Where is downtown?

April 18, 2008 | By

I was just on Craig’s list getting a feel for “downtown” rental pricing.  Naturally I did my search on the word “downtown”.  I wish they had some way of drawing a boundary on a map and retrieving only the properties within that boundary.  Perhaps they will at some time in the future.
