Multi-Tasking

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on March 28, 2020

Another day, another netflix series. I got through 5/10 of Ozarks Season 3 yesterday. So far very good and I am expecting the last 5 to go straight over the top. I’m also watching the final season of Breaking Bad again just because it was awesome and I want to feel like I’m really doing something in a day—focusing on just one show seems like setting the bar pretty low….

Also, GP today. After today I wonder if this won’t be the end of horse racing for a while…….

    It’s really a great betting card, Flavor.
    The kind of card where I can tap out (old school term) before the big races.
    I sense you have much more self-control than me…

  2. Flavor said, on March 28, 2020 at 8:26 am

    Yeah my fav bet is the pick 4 and that has been pretty much ruined with the presence of zulu alpha. some players look at that like it’s a single I look at that as a pass because that horse has turned it into a pick 3. I will be betting very little until the 8th or 9th race. I have $5 to show in the 3 here in the first race just for fun.

    If you’re up to it, Flavor can you post…

    1) Likeliest Winner
    2) Best Bet
    3) Longshot Special

    • Flavor said, on March 28, 2020 at 8:31 am

      absolutely but best bet/longshot spec will be the same.

  4. Flavor said, on March 28, 2020 at 8:33 am

    4 horse in the first is visually quite impressive

  5. Flavor said, on March 28, 2020 at 8:35 am

    Loo do you know why GP never starts a race on time? It’s like they aren’t even trying to come close to post time

    • djloo27 said, on March 28, 2020 at 8:55 am

      Really don’t know. Incompetence?
      The days of long betting lines and getting shut out are over…

      • Flavor said, on March 28, 2020 at 9:25 am

        it seems to be particularly terrible at GP. I’ve noticed it for a couple of years.

    Fun pic in Chron (and I think San Jose Merc) March 26 1974 Rick Barry scores 64 in W over Portland.
    30-45 from floor (no 3s in those days) 10 boards 9 assists 5 steals. Trying to find box on this one…
    3 days earlier Downtown Fred Brown (very cool player) came into Oakland and got 58 as Sonics edged Warriors 139-137.

    End of season sometimes saw guys go off. One year there was duel for league scoring title btw Iceman and David Thompson, and Thompson got 70 in final game to beat him out iirc.

    ok, gonna socially distance myself from gulfstream for a bit, check back later.

    • djloo27 said, on March 28, 2020 at 9:41 am

      Yeah, me too.
      Catch you later…

  10. unca_chuck said, on March 28, 2020 at 9:59 am

    This game was absolute domination by Timmy. Would love to see the whole thing.

    • alleykat69 said, on March 28, 2020 at 10:04 am

      Best game I believe Timmeh ever pitched!
      Even better then his no hitters!
      Had the Braves eating out of his hands with just 2 hits no walks and 14 dominating strikeouts!!

    Giants nbc sports channel will show all 4 games of 2012 Series tmw , consecutively starting 9 AM.

    Big Daddy is 70. He was 40 in 1989 when he won 17 and had an ERA under 3.00. And had the unfortunate opening to AS game.

  16. zumiee said, on March 28, 2020 at 12:27 pm

    I went to a grocery store today that was surprisingly pretty well stocked. Although no paper towels, no liquid hand soap, and no hand sanitizer. We’re pretty well stocked on those anyway.
    The store had lots of toilet paper. Only I package (12 rolls) per customer, but people were grinning at their good fortune.

    • Flavor said, on March 28, 2020 at 12:30 pm

      My buddy lived in Indonesia for a while back in the 90s. No TP there, they just use their hands then easy it off. So in that sense he’s ahead of the game a little should things get desperate. My internet is down so I’m on my pH this afternoon, apparently

    • djloo27 said, on March 28, 2020 at 12:53 pm

      Excellent…it really is a joke.
      LoDuca made the best play I ever saw a catcher make on a foul pop…

    • djloo27 said, on March 28, 2020 at 12:54 pm

      Or as that dopey Gabby calls it… “Golfstream”

  18. alleykat69 said, on March 28, 2020 at 12:54 pm

    No TP?You can always use a corncob and sponge and butt slide off the your toilet seat…

  19. djloo27 said, on March 28, 2020 at 1:05 pm

    Get used to hearing “Challenging Times” until this thing ends…

      Are Sacrifices,what does that mean?
      Taking some 60 plus old people’s lives for the good of the younger idiots out there?

    The wife and I went into town for supplies and to let the dogs run a bit. Get home, crack open a beer and my emergency pager goes off. Motorcycle accident on the highway, 3 bikes down. We get to the scene and I start to ask the most injured guy some questions, he just starts rattling off, I’m not nauseated, I don’t think I have any internal bleeding, the only place I’m bleeding is a road rash on my hand etc. He said his only problem was his leg was broken. EMTs arrived and sure enough his leg was broken, in 3 places, including a compound fracture. This fucker calmly listed an assessment of what possible injuries he could have had. We had to Medvedev the dude out and 2 1/2 hours later I’ve pounded down a warm beer and am now drinking a very strong cocktail while being completely in awe of someone in shock.

    • djloo27 said, on March 28, 2020 at 1:32 pm

      Good job by you, Bozo.
      I’m surprised the guy didn’t refuse medical attention…

      • Bozo said, on March 28, 2020 at 3:23 pm

        I know, it seemed like the guy was an old hand at it. Which if that was the case, I’d think he should consider taking up another hobby.

    • Flavor said, on March 28, 2020 at 1:37 pm

      what is an emergency pager?

      • Bozo said, on March 28, 2020 at 3:19 pm

        It looks like a pager but it is a 911 page/voice caller for emergency personal. You can have it set to hear all of the County 911 calls or just your own emergency response area. I keep mine set for station 19, which is my VFD. I also have a cad alert text on my phone.

  21. Flavor said, on March 28, 2020 at 1:23 pm

    still no internet. pfftttt. Can’t access the pp’s. This day has been an incredible downer.

    We could give two shits about TP shortage.

  23. zumiee said, on March 28, 2020 at 1:53 pm

    Some of the ancient Romans used a small piece of sponge on the end of a stick instead of the toilet paper that hadn’t been invented yet. The sponge was then rinsed out to be reused.

    • Flavor said, on March 28, 2020 at 1:55 pm

      sounds like a lot of work.

      • zumiee said, on March 28, 2020 at 1:58 pm

        And their public toilets were not big on privacy.

    An infant in the U.S. died of the virus today. That will bring a
    whole new level of concern about the virus.

    • djloo27 said, on March 28, 2020 at 2:06 pm

      Was it an otherwise healthy baby?

      • zumiee said, on March 28, 2020 at 2:29 pm

        I don’t know the details.

  25. zumiee said, on March 28, 2020 at 2:06 pm

    The overall U.S. death total will pass 2,000 today.

  26. snarkk said, on March 28, 2020 at 2:15 pm

    In lighter fare, Juan Uribe just hit an 8th inning go-ahead HR to right against Philly.
    In the 2010 NLCS.
    On KNBR…

  27. djloo27 said, on March 28, 2020 at 3:26 pm

    Track announcer at GG just called the wrong horse all the way around the track…

      He must be in charge of the post times, too.

    Giants TV network is showing a Giants victory over the Dodgers last season, tonight at 6 PM Pacific Time.

    • zumiee said, on March 28, 2020 at 5:41 pm

      Right now they’re showing Zito’s shut-out of the Rockies at Coors Field.

  29. zumiee said, on March 28, 2020 at 5:43 pm

    MLB Network’s replays today were NY-centric, Yankees and Mets games.

  30. alleykat69 said, on March 28, 2020 at 5:58 pm

    They should show Ruben Rivera’s comical base running adventure back in 2003 with Jon Miller’s famous call:”That was the worse base-running in the history of the game!”

  31. willedav said, on March 28, 2020 at 6:18 pm

    Ha even Kuiper said it. Belt hit one just in front of the 421 sign that got caught for sac fly rbi, and Kuiper said “that will be a HR next year.”

    • djloo27 said, on March 28, 2020 at 6:31 pm

      Yeah, for the other team…

  32. willedav said, on March 28, 2020 at 6:28 pm

    Bum K’s Muncy swinging.

  33. djloo27 said, on March 28, 2020 at 6:49 pm

    Leo Cardenas lifetime vs. Marichal: 6/11/.329
    Leo Cardenas!

    • willedav said, on March 28, 2020 at 7:09 pm

      cool player. they’re talking about how Kike Hernandez owns Bum with 6 doubles 4 HRs and .500 BA in 40 plus ABs.

  34. willedav said, on March 28, 2020 at 7:13 pm

    Couple curious moves by Bochy that last inning tho. Hernandez doubles but is stranded there with 2 outs and Bellinger up, followed by Russell Martin. they pitch to Bellinger instead of walking him. He whacks a line drive that Belt has to dive for on one hop almost on OF grass but Bum is late covering batter safe Hernandez running on pitch scores 1-1.

    Then he lets bum hit for himself leading off the inning despite fact Ryu had retired 14 guys in a row. Bum strikes out on 3-4 pitches and leaves dugout as Moronta goes down to pen to warm up all again. Didn’t want to waste a PH?

  35. willedav said, on March 28, 2020 at 7:18 pm

    Seemed like that was time you pitch around Bellinger and deal with Martin and instead they went right at him and he burned them. bum wound up throwing 29 pitches that inning.

  36. willedav said, on March 28, 2020 at 7:29 pm

    Crawford slash line coming into last AB vs. Ryu- .194/.272/.214

  37. willedav said, on March 28, 2020 at 7:35 pm

    B/R says Cardenas is still alive at 81. born in cuba debut with Reds 1960.
    I remember his buddy on Reds reserve IF Chico ruiz also from cuba. B/R says he died in 1972, aged only 33. hmmnn have to check that one out.

    • willedav said, on March 28, 2020 at 7:44 pm

      died in solo car accident outside San Diego in Feb. yikes gal he had married and had 2 children with was (she has also passed) stepmom of ump Laz Diaz.

    Jack Taschner career:
    222 appearances all in relief
    Games finished: 47
    Career Saves: 0

  39. zumiee said, on March 28, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    Buster with the walk-off single. A good win. Solarte was celebrating like crazy, and he was gone from the team later. A Parra sighting, too. He did nothing for the Giants, and finished the season as the Nats mascot, and won a ring.

    • willedav said, on March 28, 2020 at 9:27 pm

      3 hits for Duggar who scored the game winning run. anything like that ever happen again? Tyler Austin hit second after Duggar and smoked a long double first time up. don’t think he did too much after May 1 either.
