    So we’re all doing our push ups along with Ryan today, right?

    (No, push ups are terrible).

    1. runningunnin.454

      Sit ups are worse!

    So California has a petition supporting so called Calexit….to secede from the U.S.
    Where do I sign?

    1. Realme

      Toodles California. Good luck with North Korea and your budget woes.

    2. Stuck on Blue

      California is 12% of our GDP, and rank 7th or 8th in the world. Along with Texas, Florida, Illinois and New York, which together are 40% of our GDP. Nope, I want to keep California.

      I’m in RG!

      Stuck on Blue, they’ll still have to sell us their fruits & nuts (the actual edible ones).

    4. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      BTW RG, I don’t know if you saw my comment yesterday about your Kyrie joke, but you’re the funniest dude in the ST, IMHO.

    5. Realme

      They’re not really going anywhere, SOB. They’re just mad other people are allowed to have different views than them.

    6. J-Dub421

      If California secedes it would cripple the US economy.

    7. runningunnin.454

      They’re saying N.Korea now has missiles that can reach N.Y., Chicago, and L.A.
      Trump is being criticized for his “Fire and Fury” threat; but there is precedent. When Bill Clinton was asked about a nuclear attack from N.K. he said, “It would mean the end of their country”.
      Actually I’ve not seen reports of their missiles clearing the Sea of Japan, but maybe I missed it.

    8. ClutchCargo

      As much as I don’t want to see the U.S. broken up in any way, I could get behind this one.

    9. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Secession has been tried before. From what I remember it didn’t work out too well.

    10. runningunnin.454

      Thanks, Chris G.; but, there are a lot of funny comments on KSR. I cracked up at the comments about the pigs yesterday.

    11. Realme

      My first reaction to the fire and fury comment was horror, but after thinking about it for a couple days, maybe talking to a crazy dictator in his own language will work better than the approach of the previous 3 presidents.

    12. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I’m just having fun. I think it’s all saber rattling and I don’t think they’ll do it anyway. I could be wrong!

    13. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Some of the pig comments were funny, but I was still cringing thinking about what happened to them. I’m not a vegetarian but I still hated it. I also hope some farmer’s income wasn’t hurt too bad by what happened.

    14. J-Dub421

      Insurance should cover a farmer’s losses. I feel guilty about eating meat, but I still eat it.

    15. RealCatsFan

      We need a cage fight with Trump and Kim Ung Melonhead locked in a cage together. We could sell tickets and pay off the national debt.

    16. Realme

      That would be the highest rated tv event of all time.

    17. J-Dub421

      It would be the greatest slap fight ever.

  3. J-Dub421

    Magloire was pretty good, and the starting center on our 1998 title team. I don’t know that that was a great example.

    1. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Tubby put him on Elton Brand because he was more physical than Nazr, which turned out to be a great move.

    2. Realme

      Did they use Magloire as an example of a not good player that we loved? Are they nuts?

    3. J-Dub421

      That was who Matt said.

  4. runningunnin.454

    I like the optimism about the football team; wasn’t that long ago, we were just hoping we wouldn’t get beat by 6 TD’s.

  5. runningunnin.454

    Lordy, Guam is roughly 2,000 miles from N. Korea; it is a U.S. Territory, and it’s citizens are U.S. citizens by birth. Get Matt enrolled in a geography class.

    1. Realme

      But remember, it “borders the water”.

    2. J-Dub421

      Yeah, it borders the water on all sides, because it’s an island.

    3. runningunnin.454


    4. RealCatsFan

      I would bet that probably 85% of the US population has no idea where Guam is located, much less the fact that it is a US territory.

    5. Realme

      I think, “Guam borders the water” is right up there with “bond that bridge, so to speak”, and “be true to who yourself”.

  6. runningunnin.454

    Did you see the cat wander out on the field during the Cardinals-Royals game? After the cat was thrown out for not having a ticket, the Cards hit a grand slam to win the game.
    They need to put him on the road team.

    1. J-Dub421

      So you’re saying cats are good luck? 😉

    2. runningunnin.454

      Yep, only bad thing about cats is…..dogs just enjoy the ride, cats want to drive.

    Brad’s got that chip on his shoulder, which may make him end up earning real playing time, but also makes him less endearing. But really, do we like him less that Saul or Sutton’s kid? Coach’s son dynamic plays into it a lot.

    1. J-Dub421

      I have no problem with Brad. He’s a walk-on like any other walk-on.

    2. RealCatsFan

      I didn’t know him personally, but I never understood the hate for Saul. He wasn’t great, but the kid always busted his butt, and didn’t seem to have the “coach’s kid” complex. I understand that we probably missed out on some top shelf prospects because of Tubby playing Saul, but it wasn’t his fault.

    3. J-Dub421

      Tubby wasn’t the best recruiter anyway. Saul was better than he got credit for and always worked hard and played hard. I just remember Michael Porter being really slow and terrible on those teams.

    4. Realme

      I used to think Tubby was too slow to pull Saul when he was playing bad, but I was really new then, may have just been me not knowing much about basketball yet.

  8. runningunnin.454

    I had a loaner one time that “talked”. It told me 8 times the washer fluid was low….didn’t tell me once that it was running out of gas.

    1. Realme

      We bought a (new to us) used car a couple months ago, and it lectures us about how the driver needs to drive responsibly on the screen every time we start the car.

    Come on MAN, the 80’s to me were the golden years of college basketball during my lifetime. Kentucky had the twin towers and company, Georgetown had those great teams with Ewing and company, Carolina had Jordan, Perkins, Worthy, Daughtery…, Duke with Dawkins, Amaker…, Virginia with Samson, Louisville Darrell Griffith Pervis, Wagner, Thompson…., Houston with the fi slamma jamma, UNLV, I could just go on and on.
