Span and Casilla have gotten much better since the additions of Nunie and Smith. Coincidence? They say it is. But the evidence is clear. I guess if that’s what those guys needed to finally get their shit together, so be it.

How hot is it in DC today? Weather.com says mid 80’s later today. That seems fine but I’m sure the humidity will make it worse. One thing we learned about our guys in New York: they like a cool marine layer. Nature’s air conditioning. Our boys like to keep their core temp at its proper homeostatic balance. Maybe they could equip each Giants hat with one of those portable fan thingy’s…..

Leaving Black Butte today and bouncing down to Bend. I haven’t seen a single black person in Oregon since I got here. They should change the name of this place to White Butte. lulz. Anyway, I’ll be gettin’ down to business at the Awbrey Glen Golf Club so I’ll likely miss this game but I think my sister has some type of mlb package at her house. So maybe I see some of the game. Looking forward to more “Nunie magic” today….

lol, just got to my sister’s house. Get a load of the street sign that’s right outside her house. I’m pouring one out for the DuffHeads right now.

    Xoot, found full version of Stand Back on youtube (short 3 min version of Cristo). Fabulous, didn’t realize that was Harvey Mandel on guitar. Thx!

    Love me some Charlie Musselwhite. One of the highlights of the BottleRock concert a couple years ago.

    Love that album, Xoot. Most excellent.

    Crazy to see Wright ‘hitting’ 68 on the speed gun.

      Long live the knuckleball!

    The U.S. with the most athletes, 554. It’s a little embarrassing. Feels like overkill.

      gal I know has a son who is incoming frosh at Jose State, where they just reinstated mens track program…think anyone on current US Olympic team will make a “black lives matter” type protest there? What would reaction be if they went full Tommy Smith?

      • zumiee said, on August 5, 2016 at 10:41 pm

        That would be cool. Can’t see it happening, though. Athletes now are so concerned with getting endorsement deals.

      • unca_chuck said, on August 5, 2016 at 10:46 pm

        Plus, it only took 30 years to actually acknowledge the stand they took.

    Japan, 338 athletes. They bring a large team.
