Can Fresno Fuego kick it in 2009?avatar

without comments

Okay let me start by saying the Fresno Fuego’s first preseason match wasn’t all it turned out to be. And I’ve followed them for years. I know many of their current and past players and coaches.

‘Slumdog’ gets my vote!avatar

with one comment

I nominate “Slumdog Millionaire.” For everything. The 81st Annual Academy Awards is this Sunday, and I hope “Slumdog” wins in every category it’s nominated for.

Salma Hayek gets hitchedavatar

with 2 comments

¡Felicidades! to Salma Hayek, who married French gazillionaire Francois-Henri Pinault on Valentine’s Day in Paris. I guess the Mexican defeat of the French on Cinco de Mayo is now meaningless. To the loser goes the spoils.           I’m not crying ¡injusto! about the marriage … after all, I’m a happily married [...]

Adventures in Two Feet of Snowavatar

with one comment

Last night, after I returned from my day trip to Sierra Summit, I posted this status update on my Facebook page: “Becky is alive after skiing in two feet of new powder at Sierra Summit.” Dramatic? Yes. But there were times yesterday when I was not sure I would return from my ski adventure in [...]
