  5. MLB 2013 Season

    +2nd time caught = career over Currently there's much more reward for cheaters than risk; hence the PED era continues. 1 year suspension first time caught, followed by expulsion for 2nd offence would make it a very difficult decision for anyone to mess with this stuff. Melky get's his 50 game suspension after best #'s for his career....Giants kick him to the curb, yet Toronto signs him multi-year for really good money. Cheater Braun takes his 65 day suspension [3-4 million vacation for a team that's going nowhere], yet PED'd his way to his $120 million contract that he gets paid for no matter what happens from this point forward. cincinnati(on the road) will bat last in one of the games. has that ever been done in mlb history???? Yes,,,,,it's a make up rained-out game that was a Reds home game initially, so they batted last in the visiting ball park.

  7. Ellery Eskelin Trio - New York II

    I'm a big Eskelin fan but I think he's better when he plays uptempo or free or out than when he's playing ballads. Fwiw one ballad every other set is a-ok with me. More than that and I'm pining for groove and fire My closest friend, who I've attended hundreds of concerts with, practically hates it when a ballad is played. Somewhat like you that he' LOVES the drummers and wants to see them work out all the time. The only guy he's every likes playing brushes is Elvin Jones, who could get those crackin' when he wanted to.

  10. 2014 NEA Jazz Masters

    As learned in recent years, it's really the campaign put forth by the supporters of the eventual recipients that get's them in; in Mr. Davis' case apparently someone has been in his corner!
  11. 2013 NHL Playoffs

    This year's final four teams are the last 4 Stanley Cup Champions Eastern finals Penguins & Bruins ended series early...Western Chicago and reigning champs Kings just went 7 games to advance should be a really good home stretch!

  14. Bobby Bland R.I.P.

    I had the good fortune to see him a number of times over the years....RIP That iconic 'growl' of his and could sing as sweet as a bird too. Very disappointed about a month ago, was looking forward to seeing him in concert, which was cancelled due to health reasons......now this.
  15. ***King Crimson Corner***

    Steve, Clarification please? Not sure how much you really like the band; are they one of the greatest, or one of the *greatest*?
  16. Mike Schwartz/ KSJS guest list

    Most [not all but the vast majority] of my guests have a new or recent release that's in play at the time they come on, so I'd have to say we'll wait until autumn for Gregory.

  18. 2013 NHL Playoffs

    When I was at a game in Calgary, I happened to actually READ my ticket stub. It's printed on it that, by buying a ticket, I absolve the NHL, or the associated members of any responsibility for injuries that may occur should I be hit by any puck etc. while watching a game. I had no idea......................but I stayed and wasn't hit by a puck etc. By merely attending, you are accepting the possibility that you may suffer an injury. Hmmmm... You get the same at a baseball game for balls, bats, and misc. items leaving the field and going into the stands.

  20. 2013 NHL Playoffs

    Fair to say that the parking lot of the arena connected right next door to Giants Stadium was a huge gathering area if they had huge crowds.
  21. 2013 NHL Playoffs

    Not fair to say.....every team that started the Stanley Cup playoffs came from cities with very strong fan bases. Finals are on NBC. Of the 7 possible games all except games 2 & 3 are on NBC [ 2 & 3 on cable NBC Sports Network] ,and 2 Canadian networks
  22. Keith Jarrett: Somewhere

    I like this one quite a lot...they never disappoint and as CJ points out it would be hard to pick a fave. The trio is an improvising machine!
  23. How do you embed here?

    Couldn't find a thread with this topic. I know how to embed video from Youtube at other places. My first attempt here the text link posted as opposed to the video. Thanks in advance for your help.
  24. Mike Schwartz/ KSJS guest list

    So may of them fit the bill on all 3 counts, it would be a longer list than I could possibly recall. A number of them are people I've met like Russell and bandmate Bob Mintzer. He [Ferrante] attended San Jose State and the roots of the band are in this area, his entire family is from this area as well, and I've also done business with some of his relatives in the car business. One of my all time favorites (to choose one) was with Toots Theilmans. This was a session we taped in his hotel room, and as I asked various questions, a number of his answers came back as he picked up and played the harmonica or his guitar!
