I won’t go into my Disney princess stories then…
Steve from OH
Yeah, singing while playing is a VERY underappreciated talent. Heck, I can’t really even play that well, but I can barely strum and hum at the same time. LOL! A guy like Billy Gibbons that sings and shreds at the same time? Hell, yeah!
Coach does your little Titanic fantasy bit when he thinks of Luis Durango.
June 19th, 20091:04 am
Disney Princesses I can handle Celine Dion? Not so much
June 19th, 20091:06 am
I don’t even want to think about that.
Wayne in Utah
Tom and cabravesfan
Back in 1994, when The Eagles did that first tour, I have the MTV VHS of their first concert in LA. They started off with the new version of Hotel California. Nobody in the audience knew what they were doing at first, as it was the first time for that version.
Then when they break out into the recognizable beginning, the crowd wakes up with a bit of a roar. It was awesome.
I loved watching Joe Walsh and Don Felder work together. Too bad Felder and the others couldn’t patch things up a few years back!
“I love Celine Dion!! I used to pretend I was Rose in Titanic and stand on the edge of the chair and sing “My Heart Will Go On”—-Roman Gal
Be honest, wasn’t nolie your “Leo”?
BTW, did you find Shinhopple?
cabravesfan, remind me to send you the live version.
No Steve, I haven’t. Gonna have to do that now. Don’t think I should. Once I start “you-tubing”, I’m not gonna stop. Too addicting.
There is tons of stuff on youtube that is just crazy from a guitar standpoint. This is one of my favorites:
And on that note, I’m going you-tubing and then to bed.
June 19th, 20091:07 am
I used to want to dye my hair black or red because I didn’t like the blonde princesses. Plus, David Justice (who I was completely in love with) had dark hair.
June 19th, 20091:08 am
send me the live version
Everybody throw their Ipod (or mp3 player of choice) (N8)
what are they? What’s a shuffle, some kinda slow awkward dance?
June 19th, 20091:09 am
OK, you just totally redeemed yourself- I had a huge crush on David Justice too (to this day I often wish I had dark hair…blonde can be so boring!)
Too many songs, not enough time…..
June 19th, 20091:10 am
Back then it was David Justice. No lie. I was completely in love with him. I was heart broken when he left. Although, in 1997/1998, it was Javy Lopez. Sorry, nolie…
I saw that Shinhopple was a place in New York. There’s a bar there and a park.
June 19th, 20091:11 am
What’s a shuffle, some kinda slow awkward dance?
nolie, you crack me up.
There’s a bar there and a park.
What else do you need?
“I loved watching Joe Walsh and Don Felder work together. Too bad Felder and the others couldn’t patch things up a few years back!”
Wayne, the way that group got along, we’re lucky that they ever got back at all! When you put that many great musicians together, egos have to clash.
June 19th, 20091:12 am
For disrespecting your elders (WAYNE)
yup, that’s her schtick.. she is a bad girl sometimes.
Titanic is like the only movie I will sit and watch that last that long…..I may be young but I remember when it came out on VHS…those 2 tapes….lol…my grandma still has them
June 19th, 20091:13 am
blonde can be so boring!
Haha…don’t hear that too often. I think Yunel might beg to differ, though. I don’t have blonde hair anymore, though.
N8–I just watched that!
A couple of my faves–
Kids, don’t try this at home! LOL!
June 19th, 20091:14 am
I still have that 2 set-VHS. It’s awesome.
June 19th, 20091:15 am
Everyone in LA wants to be blonde, guys included…UGH! (and my hair is a lot darker now then it used to be but it’s still blonde)
June 19th, 20091:16 am
Don’t let the bedbugs bite, and if they do, then take your shoe, and knock ‘em ’til they’re black and blue!

June 19th, 20091:17 am
The Eagles? Celine Dion? Now the blogs suck too! Whats a Braves fan to do?
by the way, my #11 was Hotel California by the Eagles (CBF)
I have to go to a doctor’s office and get an infusion. It’s lasted 18 weeks so far, some people have been there a year. we call it Hotel Asper****(Drs name) cause once you check in you can never leave. Great song, great band. Greatest Hits is biggest selling album in history I believe.
June 19th, 20091:18 am
Not me! Nothing but the straight and narrow for me!!
June 19th, 20091:19 am
Whats a Braves fan to do?
Maybe you could interject some interesting baseball banter and perhaps someone will respond. Although, since you basically just insulted everyone here, that doesn’t seem too likely. But go ahead, give it a go.
June 19th, 20091:21 am
“I saw that Shinhopple was a place in New York. There’s a bar there and a park. —- Roman Gal
I doubt you got Shinhopple on your map inquiry. Maybe Downsville. Shinhopple is a small hamlet, with no bars or parks. Just a few houses in a remote area of the Catskill Mountains. Downsville is a village, of maybe 3500 people, about 7 miles north. The mailing address, in Shinhopple, is Downsville. Yes, Downsville has a bar and a park.
You’re right- the entire album is great- my parents were fans before they broke up, and when they released Hell Freezes Over they bought it- I “borrowed” it from them and never gave it back
June 19th, 20091:22 am
won’t go into my Disney princess stories then (RG)
Information Overload. This does not compute!
June 19th, 20091:23 am
It showed up on Mapquest…I had to zoom out to make sure there was an actual civilization somewhere in the vacinity…it took a while (although I did notice it’s only 40 miles or so from Cooperstown so it can’t be all bad )
June 19th, 20091:24 am
I’m sorry to say that my research consisted of google and 3.5 seconds…or long enough for me to see the words “New York”, “Bar”, and “Park”.
June 19th, 20091:25 am
Hey now! Be nice, you.
June 19th, 20091:29 am
Remember- Nolie’s an old guy with a vibrating bed…probably shoud cut him a little slack
June 19th, 20091:30 am
Steve, I’ve seen the Mr. Scary link before. My 8 year old LOVES instrumental guitar stuff, so I’ve shown that one to him (for whatever reason – to my wife’s dismay – Mr. Scary is one of his favorite tunes).
But Satriani is so damn cool, I always forget it until I see or hear clips of him. Thank you. LOVE, LOVE, LOVED the Surfin’ with the Alien album (actually first bought it on casette), and wore that thing out.
Now it’s time to go to bed…er….keep looking at youtube clips.
June 19th, 20091:32 am
I went to the Hell Freezes over tour in Minnapolis and in Fargo in 95. Thinking it was the “farewell” tour. Only to find out, that the farewell tour wasn’t planned until 2005. Stupid me. Should have known better.
Love Joe Walsh and Felder. Killer combo. Even if you have to put up with Don Henly to listen to it. LOL!
Good night, sleep tight.

I’m a born-n-bred country music fan…but like a mix of other music too. I even like 50’s & 60’s oldies rock (the Monkees, Elvis, Beattles, etc) with some 70’s (CCR, Eagles, etc).
Just have always hated crap….opps, I mean rap. YUCK!!!!

Oh c’mon Roman Gal….it isn’t as bad as you say it is.
For all intense purposes…I can’t stand heavy metal music. Never have and never will.
I do like very few select songs (Every Rose Has It’s Thorn to name one)….but as a whole, I hate it.

And then, copy and paste this, to the map destination box:
30 River Rd, Downsville, NY 13755-3208
You’ll see the place I rent. It’s the big one with the green roof. The body of water, it’s next to, is the East Branch of the Delaware River. One of the best trout streams in the northeast (about 150 miles upriver of Philadelphia). You can hit the “+” and zoom in more. About 7 miles to the north (right) is Downsville. (You’d have to switch to aerial or road, otherwise it would take you forever) Then the dam of the Pepacton Reservoir. The Pepacton is the largest of the NY city reservoirs, approximately a little over 20 miles long. No camps, no motors, and hardly any people. It’s a wonderful place to be at. Mostly just beauty and wildlife. (BYOB)

Dang! If only I’d have known…
A little baseball talk for the die-hards.
I think Johnson has hurt the team more than anybody in a way. They did not count on Francy doing all that much better than last year, and overall he hasn’t, though he has shown a glimpse here and there. Is hitting a bit better the last week or so. Baby steps.
Johnson on the other hans was counted on in a much bigger way. He had a decent season last year and looked especially promising the last 6-8 weeks of the season. Many people in baseball were high on him and thought he could take the next step to becoming a superior hitter, and no matter the perception of his fielding on this board, he is a league average second baseman in the field;in fact stats show him as slightly above average(not sure that I agree to go that far). He has really failed to live up to those expectations, but I don’t think you can blame Wren on that. Most thought he could be a force this year.
Ganderson has been a disappointment too of course, and because of his laid-back demeanor -which he has always had-fans have reacted to that failure even more than it really is cause he appears lazy and unhappy. Can we blame Wren on that one? Some I guess, but there is no question that they did not have the funds to acquire Dunn or probably any other FA OFer except Grif or Ganderson.
I think the money problem has been shown a number of times all year. Failure to get an OFer in the winter,letting Glav go in order to afford Louth, and also in the draft this month. They did not draft the upside guys who were still available, but chose a relatively cheap low ceiling pitcher for the 7th best in the draft. There were at least 4-5 better available.
Because money is so tight, I don’t expect any large additions this year, and if we continue to fall we might actually see them trade Vaz, but would likely get prospects back.It would be nice if they do trade him to get back a decent OFer who would be around for another couple of years to bridge to gap to Heyward or Schafer, but IMO that’s unlikely.
Trade Francy? What do we get for him? Not much likely. Perhaps if a contender needs a little OF help-and I do mean little-we could get a prospect for him in July, but it likely would not be a sure fire one. That still might be the best thing that can be done though since after arb this winter he will likely be in the 4.5-5 mil range and they might decide to non-tender him even with the PR hit and the sense of failure that move would engender.
Trade Johnson? Again what do you get? Do you take anything or do you hang on hoping that he lives up to past history and follows a long cold snap with a long hot one? I think I might take that last approach unless a multi-player deal arose that he might be included in. If we still have him this winter, no matter whether he bounces back strong or not I think you have to move him at that point. We are lucky to have Prado and Infante either of whom would likely make a serviceable 2nd bagger. Neither has KJ’s potential but both are likely to do better than he has so far this year and be a bit less straeky.
I think it’s a lot tougher situation than most emotionally influences fans realize. I think Wren did a pretty good job fixing our biggest problems over the winter. We have some darn decent starters who are all here another year or more unless we decide to trade one. KK has perhaps become superfluous, but at the time of that signing it was considered a smart insurance move that could also pay off in more Asian attendance in a city with a decent sized Asian population;and it also was hoped to open doors to the Asian market for the future in other possible pickups. He has been something of a disappointment to many fans, but I did not expect him to be more that a #4 starter and that’s where he has done ok. Next year he will likely be the #5 starter and will be about as good as any one of those in BB.
Overall I think there were too many problems for any GM to get them all fixed over one winter. We have some money coming off the books this winter and hopefully they will be able pick up a n above average OFer and perhaps Schafer will bounce back and be a likely improvement
One of the questions coming up is Gonzo and Sori. I’d like to see them re-sign one or even both if cheap enough, but I think that is unlikely. Again either one of those guys might be the best trade chip we have in July. If thet are far enough out to be sellers, a B+ level closer might bring a package or at least one very promising high minors prospect.

For the two greatest country songs ever, (one for sure, one is a joke), see David Allan Coe’s “You Never Even Called Me by My Name” and George Jones’ “He Stopped Lovin’ Her Today”
June 19th, 20092:12 am
I think trading Johnson right now would be a mistake. Like I said earlier, he has a really low babip. I feel like when he was going good earlier the hits weren’t falling for him like they normally do because he was hitting them right at people. He’s been bad in June, but I do think his numbers are deceptive. His numbers at home have certainly been decent, along with his numbers against lefties.
Kelly is very important for this team. I was looking at his numbers in losses vs. wins and they have some of the biggest disperities on the team. He has an .899 OPS in wins vs. a .470 OPS in losses. That’s pretty drastic.

June 19th, 20092:15 am
This Mary Martin?
June 19th, 20092:16 am
Haha…I’m sure they couldn’t possibly look as bad a Yunel’s.
cabravesfan, the biggest majority of the trout would be browns. As the water gets warmer, in the Beaverkill (the home of fly fishing), the rainbows head up the East Branch. The Pepacton releases cold water, from its depths, almost daily. This keeps the river at a very cool temperature all summer. By August, you can catch almost as many rainbows as browns. Not to often, but you can catch a brookie also. Usually, when you do, it’s a big one.
I can’t believe you know about the trout family also. But, you never do cease to amaze me.
“WOW, two women (the other being cabravesfan) who know their baseball stats.
June 19th, 20092:17 am
Since the start of the 2006 season, Brian McCann leads all Major League catchers in homers, doubles, extra-base hits and RBIs. He ranks third in batting average, behind Joe Mauer and Victor Martinez.
No…neither of our hair is cropped like his so it’s not tipped-like…lol

We have a fine contingent of females on the old “MIB” blog!

I’ve been catching and eating trout since I was born The lake my family goes to is stocked in the summers…and it is very, very cold (mainly snow run-off from the mountains + 7,000 foot elevation = cold water!) There are other fish in the lake, but rainbows are the most common by far. The Brooks that we pull out of the streams are usually pretty small but there are a lot of them. (I don’t fly fish, but my dad & brother both do- it requires 4 wheel driving and a long hike…I don’t mind the walk but not a big fan of off-roading)
June 19th, 20092:24 am
If that’s the way I come across…I apoligize. No, no, I think it’s very cool that women know baseball stuff…(stats, etc).
Again..I’m sorry if I came across as mean. Not my intentions at all.

“WOW, two women (the other being cabravesfan) who know their baseball stats” —- Frank from KS
Man, where have you been? There’s at least 15 women on this blog that could make your head spin with their baseball knowledge. Yeah, you’ve been around, you know that!
This one, however, I’m not sure how to take: “Sorry for being rude….but ya happen to have any fresh water fish up that way? (ie: crappie, bass, channel cat, etc)”
You do realize that Albany isn’t on the ocean, right? At least, not yet. With global warming, who knows?

yes and JR from Dallas , but my favorite roll of his is in “Mother, Jugs & Speed” with Bill Cosby, Raquel Welsh and Harvey Keitel. He plays an ambulance worker who gets in trouble for paying too much attention to the dead women in the back.. Funny movie.
Never seen (or heard of) an ocean trout (not saying you are wrong, just that I never knew) but even so, probably 99% of all trout is freshwater
June 19th, 20092:43 am
Oh, and I wasn’t trying to be nasty- sorry if it came out that way!
I was thinkin’ more along the lines of fish ya find in lakes…not oceans, or streams.
