I Heard The News Baby ….

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 7, 2020

Still struggling mightily with the EVH news…..The Dodgers finished off an in tact 4 team parlay for me and after I hit it I actually felt worse. Weirdly, I haven’t seen a second of the NBA playoffs this year. I think there was just too much time off and without the Dubs in it I just never gained any interest or traction.

Four more baseball games today. Who cares, nothing matters.

    Last night, the Padres had the bases loaded and one out, and Profar is up there swinging with a big upper-cut for the fences, and strikes out. That’s just not good baseball. I get it about how the game is played now, but it’s not good.
    Same with the NBA. 5 offensive players on the perimeter is not good basketball. It’s not fun to watch. The 3-point line finally ended up messing up NBA basketball.

    The Bucks have their super talented big guy on the parimeter. What did that accomplish for them? Didn’t even make it to the finals. Not all coaching staffs need to be sheep copying each other.

    The Padres had to try to bullpen their way through that game, and it was a valiant effort, but all it takes is one of the bullpen guys to be a dud that night.

    Feeling you, Flavor. My older brother and I bonded over VH as kids. “Jump“ in those early MTV video days is still etched in my memory. Slate is a leftist rag but here’s an article I came across about an invention of Eddie’s that might cheer you up at least.

      when me and my friends first heard Jump we were disgusted thinking Eddie had sold out to the synthesizer movement. By like the 4th time hearing it we were like “this is fucking rad”

    3 outcome ABs increasingly boring. Yanks K’d 18 times last night, Rays only 6. Pads K’d 14 times with 4 walks and 3 hits, scoring only once. 10 walks for LA. Tedious baseball.

    This drum intro will be bad ass until the end of time. If I am not mistaken this song was played on the floor of Congress.

    Have not watched a lick of the nba finals and with flav that only thing I am rooting for in baseball besides Flodgers losing is for Dusty…always had a soft spot for our old skipper…

    Wish I took this pic but this was the Day on the Green in ’78. The 2 bands apparently gained a huge amount of respect for each other as they were both taking off.

    evh

    Eddie said it was Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page who influenced him the most growing up.Nice role models to look up too..

    The Bands that really got his mojo going for they’re powerful riffs were
    Cream,Led Zeppelin,Black Sabbath,The Who,Deep Purple,AC/DC

    • djloo27 said, on October 7, 2020 at 11:48 am

      There is no such thing as a metal band that didn’t worship Zep and Sabbath…

  10. djloo27 said, on October 7, 2020 at 11:37 am

    He had a great life and had to be suffering terribly at the end.
    It could’ve been worse.
    Look at Lennon and my beloved Pantera…

    :”Jump” never really worked for me, but I still love the 1984 album. I think “I’ll Wait” is a great synthesizer based tune.
    My son Matt and I saw Van Halen in 2015 at the Hollywood Bowl. Great show and they mixed in some cool deep tracks with the big hits. It was the last night of the tour and I suspected it would be the last time Eddie and David Lee played together on stage.
    Turns out it was the last VH concert ever.

  12. djloo27 said, on October 7, 2020 at 12:01 pm

    Almost every major grunge dude from the 90’s is dead…

    • unca_chuck said, on October 7, 2020 at 1:10 pm

      Pearl Jam is still out there.

      And actually, Alice in Chains has some good recent stuff.

      • djloo27 said, on October 7, 2020 at 3:06 pm

        No Layne Staley…

    this story came out earlier this year, one of my favorite EVH stories. He had no time for shitty musicians lol

    • sandog said, on October 7, 2020 at 2:26 pm

      That is a great story! I heard an interview with Sammy once talking about the reunion tour he did with them in 2004. It was total chaos. He said every night he worried Eddie would not even make it on stage and be able to play.

  14. alleykat69 said, on October 7, 2020 at 1:44 pm

    Matt Olsen just crushed a Homerun to right up in the pavilion walkway..

  15. Macdog said, on October 7, 2020 at 2:00 pm

    Melonhead closes out Game 2, Braves take 2-0 lead.

    • alleykat69 said, on October 7, 2020 at 2:10 pm

      Figures Melonface goes somewhere else and pitches good.
      Because he pitched like a smelly diaper for the Giants!!

    • unca_chuck said, on October 7, 2020 at 2:31 pm

      Hey, they took his whole contract. He can win the Cy Young for all I care. We ain’t paying him.

  16. alleykat69 said, on October 7, 2020 at 2:04 pm

    Marcus Seiman HR dead center field..
    A’s have hit 4HR’s all solo shots LaStella,Cahna,Olsen &Seiman
    4-2 A’s bet they wish a couple of those were with runners on.

  17. unca_chuck said, on October 7, 2020 at 2:30 pm

    Just turned on the game, A’s down 5-4. Musta missed something.

  18. unca_chuck said, on October 7, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    Didn’t know Chris Speier was the1st base coach for Dusty. My first favorite rookie Giant. 6-4 Astros.

    • willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 2:47 pm

      yeah saw that in Chron today. Also fwiw, Shea mentioned Springer is an FA after this season.

    • alleykat69 said, on October 7, 2020 at 3:25 pm

      Yeah Speier was awesome coming up as a Rook and playing like a veteran right out of the gate.
      Sucks he ends up with this cheating bunch though, but there are only so many coaching opportunities..

  19. willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 2:42 pm

    Tucker beats shift with single up the middle off Diekman, A’s third pitcher of 5th. Stros bat around and score 5, lead 7-4. Ball flying out of Latrine again today–Astros have 2 HRs and 4 for A’s as Kat said.
    Weird stat from yesterday game—A’s hit 2 solo bombs in 5-2 L, but never had runner in scoring position. 0 baserunners from 5th through 8th.

  20. unca_chuck said, on October 7, 2020 at 2:47 pm

  21. willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 3:05 pm

    3 run bomb and A’s tie it up 7-7 in 6th. Wild back and forth game.

  22. willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 3:15 pm

    top of A’s order Semien LaStella and Pinder so far: 7 for 11 scored 5 driven in 5 runs.

  23. willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 3:24 pm

    wow Melvin brings in closer Hendriks to pitch 8th vs. Astros Altuve Brantly Bregman. Gets them 1-2-3. Wonder how long he’ll go.
    Hendriks btw is one of number of A’s to be an FA–Fiers LaStella Grossman and Semien. lot of hmmnn there

    • willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 3:26 pm

      sorry that was bottom 7th Diekman came in–teams flip at neutral sites and Astros are home today.

  24. alleykat69 said, on October 7, 2020 at 3:30 pm

    Crazy game at the Latrine as the A’s retake the lead 8-7 on a sac fly.

  25. Macdog said, on October 7, 2020 at 3:40 pm

    A’s rally off Raley.

  26. unca_chuck said, on October 7, 2020 at 3:42 pm

    9-7 on another sac fly

  27. unca_chuck said, on October 7, 2020 at 3:55 pm

    Huh. Never seen this before. A simpler time. Sex drugs and rock & roll.

    • alleykat69 said, on October 7, 2020 at 4:03 pm

      Yeah sure is nice that I can still do all 3..🤣🤣🤣

    • djloo27 said, on October 7, 2020 at 5:34 pm

      I had that red shirt…

  28. willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 3:56 pm

    As Ian Anderson might have told Dusty, Nothing is Easy.

  29. alleykat69 said, on October 7, 2020 at 4:00 pm

    Hendriks never makes things easy but he somehow gets out and he just came thru again!
    No doubt he pitches the 9th inning he’ll he threw 49 pitches to retire 10 Whitesox’s hitters, he’s only at 25 right now…Should be interesting 🤔 in the bottom of the 9th, maybe A’s can get another run to help him out
    Hmm Stros are going with a Scubb?

  30. unca_chuck said, on October 7, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    Too old to rock and roll, too young to die.

    How hard would it be to come up through a farm system with the name Andre Scrubb?

    • alleykat69 said, on October 7, 2020 at 4:33 pm

      Whitesox’s had a pitcher in the A’s series named Aaron Bummer, that can’t be easy as well,
      Hmmm 🤔 what if they played on the same team and the manager needs a reliever and he’s thinking man, do I go with the Scrubb are bring in the other guy which could be a real Bummer?

  31. unca_chuck said, on October 7, 2020 at 4:14 pm

    A’s win!

  32. willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 4:14 pm

    Hella save for Hendriks, 3 full innings

  33. alleykat69 said, on October 7, 2020 at 4:22 pm

    Hendrix’s must have a rubber arm cause Melvin works his ass off! Nice comeback win!

    Oh btw another reason to hate the Astros, How come they turn the stadium lights on for them and not in the top of the inning for A’s?Thats BS and Melvin let The homeplate ump know about it.Along with maybe getting another 2 cents in about that catcher interference call that stood up and replays showed probably not..

  34. Flavor said, on October 7, 2020 at 5:26 pm

    • willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 6:16 pm

      same thing with last year’s World Series. Team that homered most often won each individual game all 7 times.
      Funny thing is, total bombs btw Nats and Houston were dead even 11-11 and so were team ERAs.

  35. willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 5:49 pm

    Yanks gotta change the scouting report on Arozarena. wow is he going off

    • Flavor said, on October 7, 2020 at 6:31 pm

      he is so much fun to watch.

      • djloo27 said, on October 7, 2020 at 6:36 pm

        Have some fun, Flavor.
        You deserve it!

  36. willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 7:04 pm

    speaking of going off, no homers yet but Dodgers are 5-14 off Davies. 2 of the outs last inning, the line drive to 3b by Betts and the last rocket to deep CF by Smith that Grisham ran down, were both smoked.

    • willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 7:21 pm

      Bellinger changes that. 4-1 LA. Pads don’t get to Opie soon they’re doomed.

  37. willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 7:46 pm

    davies got through 5 innings for Tingler but gave up 9 hits to 23 batters he faced.
    LHs Seager Muncy Bellinger 4-8, 2 doubles HR and all 4 rbis.

  38. alleykat69 said, on October 7, 2020 at 8:19 pm

    Freakin Bellinger with a great catch to rob Tatis jr of a homer!

    • djloo27 said, on October 7, 2020 at 8:35 pm

      Cody’s dad (lifetime .193 hitter) has 2 WS rings…

  39. Macdog said, on October 7, 2020 at 8:42 pm

    The hopeless Pads just went 1-2-3 in the 8th in about two minutes, I didn’t think that was possible anymore, especially in a playoff game.

    • willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 8:47 pm

      About to ruin Passan call too if they don’t rally

  40. alleykat69 said, on October 7, 2020 at 9:13 pm

    Told ya Jansen is a bum! They lit him up and now the Padres still have a pulse..

  41. willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 9:13 pm

    Roberts finally seen enough.

  42. willedav said, on October 7, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    Pads right there great 9th

  43. Macdog said, on October 7, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Goddamn Hosmer. Two great ABs by Tatis and Machado to load the bases, and this douche flails away at a 1-1 ball and eventually grounds out to end it.

  44. alleykat69 said, on October 7, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Well crap u couldn’t ask for more drama in the 9th.
    Kelly got the best of Hosmer now it’s 2-0’dogpile..
