Oh Joe, will you ever win?
‘Cause, you know, that’s what the wiffle ball professionals use and, of course, we all want to be just like them:

Hey, you know who’s hosting Super Bowl 50? That’s right, “the San Francisco Bay Area” is. (Shhh. Don’t tell our SFGov City Family about that.)
Speaking of which, SFGov is probably looking forward to getting some national attention for something other than the shooting of Kathryn Steinle.

Is there anything wrong with leaving the Golden State Warriors in Oakland?
Anyway, here’s the scene in Golden Gate Park – I can’t imagine this arboreal/sports clothing line program “makes money” for our City Family, but rich like having fun too, and this is one way for them to do it:

Is this The Future?
A modern day warrior
Mean, mean stride
Today’s Tom Sawyer
Mean, mean pride
Though his mind is not for rent
Don’t put him down as arrogant
His reserve, a quiet defense
Riding out the day’s events
Exit the warrior
Today’s Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the energy you trade
He gets right on to the friction of the day
Bro was cruising right along…
Hanging ten is when the surfer positions the surfboard in such a way that the back of it is covered by the wave and the wave rider is free to walk to the front of the board and hang all ten toes over the nose of the board.
Americans will play soccer, particularly when we’re young,* but we don’t want to watch, ’cause we think it’s boring. Sorry, World.
Now the reason we think watching televised soccer is boring is partly due to this game right here, from 1999, a BFD, with President Bill Clinton showing up. But regulation and overtime play was a “tepid affair,” non? It ended in a 0-0 tie. And then the game was won on penalty kicks. Start watching at 9:00.
Boy, that was a nice high-def vid I gave you, huh? Anyway, did you notice this?
This is how the U.S. won the game. If the Chinese shooter chooses to go to the right, as she did, then there was a futbol’s chance in Hell the ball could go into the net.
Oh, so the FIFA refs didn’t call it, so it’s all right? Well, what if the goalie kept on charging and kicked the ball before the shooter had a chance to and the refs didn’t call that either? There comes a point where you simply go too far trying to attain your “goal,” or non-goal in this case.
Anyway, I’m not taking away your victory, USWT99, I’m a just putting a big, fat asterisk in the record book.
Let’s hope USWT15 cheats less today, 16 years later.
*In my part of SF, the Western Addition, you can start you kid on soccer at an RPD park at 18 months old, for like $50 a session.
We like them short and we like them tall
We like them one and we like them all
They’re always adding speakers when they find the room
Cause they know we love the man-children with the boards that go BOOM!
