Jimbo, Brilliant observation by you on Sanders getting "socialized" by Clinton. He beats the pantsuit off her in NH yet Hillary receives as many delegates as Sanders due these things called super-delegates.

the shadow knows, Your memory remains sharp, my friend. The Palm Springs Classic was indeed a five day Pro-am event played over four different courses. Taking a page from his entertainment partner, Bing, who started his version of same up in Pebble Beach in 1947, Hope figured to do the same (entice crowds with entertainment personalities of the period by having them involved). Anyway, Hope started his in 1960.

THE SNOOZE BOWL: Purists and folks who get a thrill from playing chess may disagree, but that was a boring Super Bowl. Both team's quarterbacks, runners, receiving group were essentially "non-factors" in the contest. What was - again - was defense. From this observer's viewpoint, the game was basically over...

Christie would make for an awesome Attorney General. VP would be wasted to his abilities.

Show me a guy who can't hit his free throws and I'll show you a guy who the coach can't afford to stick into the game when it matters most - at the end of a close game.

Dwight Howard was one of the worst Lakers acquisitions in their history. Steve Nash was a close second.

na, na, na... Boston's Championship teams included all these guys. Same guys that battled Kobe and his Lakers. All of them will be retired soon, but the cream still rose up last night for the one guy who was heads and shoulders better than any of your green crew.

BB, your jealousy bloomers are showing...38 points on 21 shots, with 5 rb, 5 assists, and 2 steals. Shot back-to-back 3's with a minute to go to seal the deal, as the Timberwolves were entertaining thoughts of catching the Lakers at the end. Speaking of retirement...Rajon Rondo, last game he played was his best game as a King = 19 points.

Yep, Kaz, I'm sure Sam Mitchell went to sleep last night with images of Kobe dropping 81 on him. Hahahaha. Man, that was swwwweeeet to watch.

I don't get to see the Lakers as often as I used to. Probably a good thing, these days. So imagine my good fortune when I happened to check the NBA telecast on cable and the Laker game was about to start. Of course, it would have been just to watch the rookies, as I'm sure no one expected to see what was about to unfold. Father-time was just about to grant Kobe a page from the past and allow him to play, at least for the night, as his old/young self. Dude was having the time of his life, and Andrew Wiggins was perhaps the reason for it. You see, Wiggins was assigned to guard Kobe for the night and much trash-talking was going on all night. Both were enjoying it, I might add, as every time you saw Kobe jawing while Wiggins was guarding at the top of the key what generally happened next was a three-pointer and Wiggins smiling. "Com-on, ya can't guard this old man. I be like on walkers in 50 years and I could still splash 40 over your a**." Hahahaha. That was so much fun to watch! Kobe had 38 points and Wiggins 30 as they went back and forth. Naturally, it took that kind of night and production from Kobe to actually produce a victory. Great stuff for this Lakers fan.

SUPER SUNDAY: A couple of years ago the Denver Broncos entered Super Bowl 48 emboldened by the knowledge that they had just completed a season where they had scored the most points in NFL history (606). The team appeared confident and eager to test the old adage that "defense wins... Continue reading

I did a similar look-see with both Cruz and Rubio. Cruz had just one pass, but it was a meaty one. A bill that prevents known terrorist from entering the US. Rubio's was somewhat of a joke. Lot's of fluff out of his five or six, including a bill honoring the Miami Heat for winning the championship in 2012.

I wouldn't put too much credence on that report, Kaz. The home outfit where this report originates is "establishment" DC (The Cook Political Report), and the polling source used was WSJ's data. Just today two pieces of information made the rounds - one, that Rupert Murdock, owner of Fox and the WSJ is an open borders kinda guy. (See caution shot article in first link below). Two, that Fox News Channel Vice President Bill Sammon has a daughter working for the campaign of Marco Rubio. We're not talking about a guy who happens to work on the set, mind you. This is THE guy that prepares the questions that the talking heads use in Fox first debate. Including the first debate fiasco, were Trump was put through the mill and Rubio almost anticipated was was coming. I've never been this cynical in my entire life. I blame yesteryear on Innocence and the naivety of youth. Now in my 60s, I only see an endless facade of curtains with jokers pulling strings behind. Best guess as to what's behind the curtain: DC politicians, the controlling media and all those with a vested interest in keeping things as they are (the establishment) is freaking out! They are pulling, twisting, inventing whatever they can to bring in Hillary and Rubio. From their perspective ANYTHING would be better than Cruz and Specially, Trump. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/01/28/rupert-murdochs-open-borders-wall-street-journal-warns-bad-sign-trump-is-following-jeff-sessions-lead/ http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/01/28/trump-campaign-manager-exposes-that-fox-news-executive-in-charge-of-debates-has-daughter-working-for-marco-rubio/

BB, I'm going to post this as a form of bookmark for myself and for future enjoyment. Watched the 10 minutes of imbedded tape and relished in the memories. Really enjoyed hearing Chick and Stu Lantz again. Nice. http://sportsrants.com/breakingthehuddle/2015/05/11/a-trip-down-memory-lane-eddie-jones-time-with-the-lakers/
