WannaBe: This one is "You Go Girl", sit on a bucket for the whole game, and (usually) goes unrecognized. Unless you body tackle the fan that runs on the field (See my previous post) But @3:25, that is a must watch.

  wtpy: TGA, That comment makes me wonder if Steve has read a Tree Grows in Brooklyn.

I think it's <A Guard coaches in Brooklyn>, is the book he likes. Or was it <A Tree Grows in Phoenix>?

No, now I remember! He rose from the ashes, like a Phoenix rising from Arizona.

  diceman: <WannaBe:

I think that I shall never see
A billboard lovely as a tree.
Perhaps, unless the billboards fall,
I'll never see a tree at all.

That sounds like Obama's "A Ghetto"

<A Ghetto

I think that I shall never see
A poem as lovely as The Great Society
A ghetto whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the teat of government largesse
A ghetto that looks to government all day
And lifts her arms to vote that way>

Which I posted years ago in the Cafe.

  WannaBe: On web site, you have the option to get a video feed of the game, or just audio (radio feed), and some teams have English & Spanish feeds.

On the web page, it only shows the station name and the frequency, it doesn't say En or Sp. And for some reason, I always click on the Spanish channel. 😂🤦‍♂️

  technical draw: "Se prepara el lanzador, mira a la primera y lanza! Strike tirandole! El corredor en primera trata de robarse la segunda, el catcher tira a la segunda base, el segundo base recibe la pelota y fuera en segunda! Se acabo el partido. Los Yankees vencen a los Dodgers 10 a zero. Tremendo partido!"

  WannaBe: B.J. Thomas died. =(
Premium Chessgames Member

<MannBee> a sad day- most know him for his signature song for "Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid" and for "Hooked on a Feeling," but some might be surprised that he was a Gospel singer as well.

"Peace in the Valley"

  OhioChessFan: I'd say top 5 voice of all time. I once saw a concert in Cincinnati. Kenny Rogers was the headliner. The Righteous Brothers were there also. But B.J. was the best of the lot. His 2 best:

Rock and Roll Lullabye-

  WannaBe: First, it was GME, and now it's AMC, fun stuff... Keep me amused following these people on WSB and reading the financial web sites.

  WannaBe: I guess Google did not Google this future employee enough to spot old blogs. 🤦‍♂️😜

  diceman: <Google said in a statement Friday that its global lead for diversity strategy and research will no longer be a part of the company's diversity team after a 2007 blog post surfaced in which he wrote that Jewish people have an "insatiable appetite for war" and an "insensitivity to the suffering [of] others."

Kamau Bobb will be focusing on his STEM work, the company said.>

A promotion!

  playground player: <WannaBe> I'm having serious problems with my blog, and I wish I had consulted you sooner.

After 10 years of solid viewership growth, I'm suddenly back to 2016-type viewer numbers--without having done anything differently.

During those 10 years, I always picked up several new followers every week. Now--not a single follower added since May 11. How can that be?

I'm thinking I've either been shadow-banned, or the search engines have been manipulated to make blog posts by conservatives much harder to find.

I'd by much obliged for any insights you might have.

  WannaBe: In a few minutes (2PM Eastern) Feds will announce changes, if any, to the current fiscal policies, interest rates, etc...

See how the market behaves after the announcement and before the closing bell at 4PM Eastern.

  WannaBe: Bank of America have started some kind of law suit against WallStreetBets?!?!

I gotta read up and find out more about this.

Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: <wtpy: That comment makes me wonder if Steve has read a Tree Grows in Brooklyn.>

I just finished it. Two thumbs up, must read, but probably not a top 100.

  WannaBe: Dang, shoot, looks like I have to go and visit a movie theatre in October for the next James Bond movie.

(That is if COVID-Mu or COVID-Moo or COVID-Nu doesn't shut down the world again)

The latest released trailer looks soooooooooooo GUD!!!

(Big Bond movie fan)

Suggestion for the NEXT Bond movie, "Bond v. COVID", forget SPECTRE. Forget Goldfinger, forget Scaramanga, forget Dr. No, forget Dr. Evil. (Oh, wait, wrong movie...)

  WannaBe: Matrix 4, is another one that I want to see, on the big screen, trailer have music from Jefferson Airplane.

(And if you "really" know the lyrics, it have chess involved)

Premium Chessgames Member


<The Mattress 4> starring <Canoe Reeves> will arrive soon at your home prefecture!

Interestingly, <Thor Heyerdhal> chose to use neither a <Canoe> nor a <Mattress> for his two breathtaking ocean voyages.

Does this mean that <Heyerdhal> took a dim view of <The Mattress> film franchise and the acting of <Canoe Reeves>?

Well yes.

Yes, it does.
