Negro Leagues .:Sep 26 10:.

I am a really big baseball fan.  Some people think baseball is boring, etc. etc.  What I enjoy about it most is the history, the fact that it is everyday, you dont have to be over 6 feet tall to be a big leaguer and of all professional sports in America it is probably the most diverse as far as ethnic makeup.  The best players are White, Black, Asian and Latino.   The all star game was in Anaheim this past year and they had a fan day at the Anaheim convention center that I checked out.  The fan day had tons of baseball activities plus tons of historical info.  One of the most interesting exhibits to me was the Negro League exhibit.  If it werent for Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in baseball who knows where we would be.  Jackie Robinson came up through the Negro leagues.  They had a wall that had all the old team names and logos of old negro league teams.  It was really interesting to me some of the names, I wonder what went into the thinking behind the names and how normal it was to distinguish the team as "Black".  Negro League Baseball 1920-1931.

Matsui Challenge 2010 .:Sep 26 10:.

So my buddy B and I had a side bet in our fantasy baseball league this year.  It was called the Matsui challenged.  Long story short, I lost and part of the bet was that we had to take a trip to Denver to watch a baseball game for the weekend.  Along with watching a game we had a chance to explore Denver for a bit.  Here are some flicks.  Coors Field was actually really nice.

We ended up taking a drive up into the mountains one day.  There is a road where you can drive into the mountains which apparently is the highest paved road in North America.  We didnt make it to the top but the mountain air was fresh and amazing. 

Also had a chance to eat some interesting food.  Had Buffalo steak which was really really good.  Also went to this one spot where they sold some pretty interesting hot dogs. 

B had some Rocky Mountain Oysters.  If you dont know what they are google it. 

You know I had to stop in and do a little digging.  Prices were high so I didnt pick up anything, but I had to stop in and take a peek.

I Like My Sugar With Coffee and Cream .:Sep 23 10:.

I ran across this video while checking out info on the new Reason 5 software (it is dope and I copped it...maybe I will do a review?).  I originally titled this post "Dinosaur Tales" but I did not want it to come off like a diss, though a lot of this stuff the kids nowadays cannot even begin to understand.  To be fair, I am a dinosaur too -- I think I still got my pausetapes stashed away here somewhere.

Anyway, Adrock tells some great stories from the Beastie Boys heyday and gives a little insight as to how cavemen circa 1984 made music.
