Re: Brush With Fame

I ran into ex-Rams head coach Ray Malavasi and heavyweight boxer Jerry Quarry at LAX. Jerry's younger brother, light-heavyweight Mike Quarry, worked out at the Cal State Fullerton gym and I saw him many times while I was attending there. I met Jackson Browne and Kevin Costner at Cal State as well (K...

You broke that rule when you blamed Bush during all eight years of Obama's term. So now we can blame whomever we want.

Re: Brush With Fame

In the same health food store in Costa Mesa over the last three or four years I've seen Babu Baht (from the old Seinfeld series) and two fighters perhaps known only to MMA fans -- Gina Carano and Matt Hughes. During the two-week baseball strike at the start of the 1972 season, the Anaheim (then Cali...

Re: New Leagues

I realize that football drives the re-leaguing strategies and battles. But if you look across all 26 boys and girls sports, Corona del Mar is as successful as any team in the county, including the privates. The school has won more CIF team championships than any other school in county history. Perha...

Re: New Leagues

They will just have to get better if the want to be in the top half of South Orange County schools. They belong there geographically. There has been far less noise coming out of places like Marina and Sonora despite getting punished in their league. With all due respect, SM, that’s a little dismiss...

Re: Let's Hear It for the Girls!

Exocet always reminds me of a die-hard fan of the Yemeni basketball team trying to put down the Warriors or Cavaliers whenever one of those teams doesn't win an NBA championship. Whatever makes you feel like less of a loser, little nugget.

Re: A 14 yr. old Girl raped by Illegal Aliens

Nobody ever said they did. Just the same as these two guys don't reflect on the entire population of illegals. Exactly my point. You seem to think the incidents of rape by illegal aliens should go unreported (or unsensationalized) because they don't reflect the actions of the majority of illegal al...

Re: A 14 yr. old Girl raped by Illegal Aliens

I still don't understand, John. There are also arguments against having cops on the force who harbor latent racism. Is citing every isolated incident of them hassling or shooting a black motorist then not also sensationalizing the issue? Not downplaying the crimes, but surely a few bad white cops do...

Re: A 14 yr. old Girl raped by Illegal Aliens

To the issue of a 14-year-old girl being raped by two illegal aliens, JQP responds with, " Sensational, but the numbers still say that illegals commit far fewer crimes than born and raised American citizens do. We're a much more violent society than most ." To the issue of the recent terro...

Re: Servite Football 2017

I'm not sure why it is, but it seems like certain offenses only work at certain schools. We all remember the disappointing results when Troy Thomas became obsessed with mimicking the things De La Salle does, and I suspect trying to replicate Centennial may be the same kind of misguided adventure. If...

Re: If you like your cancer, you can keep it

Oh, there will be those who protest, but they will be reminded that the present system is an evil liberal idea and a disaster and is imploding and collapsing ... It's imploding and collapsing? Wow, that's bad. If it were only imploding or collapsing, we might stand a chance, but both is worrisome. ...

Re: Another Obama Vacation

On the upside, Trump probably plays at his course for free. Besides, we live in a country that assigned FBI resources to finding Tom Brady's missing Super Bowl jersey. With those kinds of screwed up priorities when it comes to squandering public resources, shipping Trump out of town a few times a mo...

Re: Blow up at Mater Dei

No longer are you seeing the local kids in the starting line-up for Bruce's football team. Now it's the travel ball kids from out of the county. I understand the point you're trying to make, but this statement just isn't true. The starting quarterback lives in Irvine. The starting runningback lives...

Re: Bol Bol ?

For an officiating crew to call two moving pick fouls on consecutive possessions in the last 25 seconds after essentially not calling them all season was a little bizarre.

Re: Notable Deaths - 2017

Many of the people listed on these annual Threads of the Dead only marginally qualify as "notable", if that. But unfortunately, every so often, someone passes whose face doubtless belongs on the Mt. Rushmore of his industry or craft. Chuck Berry is absolutely one of those guys.

Welcome back, Sunday. Did you know there have been over 7,000 transfers in the Southern Section this school year?

No, instead they're on this forum 24/7 like a bunch of Kardashian groupies waiting for the latest asinine tweet to complain about. I can't think of anything more productive than that.
