Random rantings and ravings about the Los Angeles Dodgers, written by a small consortium of rabid Dodger fans. With occasional comments on baseball, entertainment, pop culture and life in general.
Damn, I see myself losing to Jason. He's already leading me by 2 minutes!!
See what they did. As a student of SOSG MM, Orel and EK got together and did a quick double post. People will log on and see the Gleek post by Orel, and MAY not notice EK sneaking in his Comment Time Thread. Pretty sneeky sis.
And the thousands of us who are participating in the crucial split squad ST GT might be thrown given our stelly focus on commenting about today's games. Sneaky, indeed.
3 pointer up!
How's that Chinese food in Taiwan, senora?
Posting from the jury box. Don't tell the bailiff.
whew... outside playing catch. almost missed this...
Hmm...looks like I'm going to have to step it up if I make it to the next round. Both of my would-be opponents beat me to the punch this half!
^ Me @ 2:09 PM "steely"
I'm so screwed. Damn meetings...
Damn work =(
Work, after all, is the curse of the SoSG contest class.
Damn life. Always getting in the way of blogs. Damn you, life!
Oh my God, why don't we just start a blog about how much we suck at posting in a timely fashion and write about it there.
Oh my God, why don't we just start a blog about starting other blogs where we can blog about what we should be blogging on other blogs! Blog!
I like it much better than when we talked about European Royalty. And I ALWAYS defer to Mr. C on that topic.
Meanwhile, looks like RB is Kansas in the Muno Regional.
4 competitors still missing...
It's a perfect spring day on the beach in LA....computer? what computer?
@Neeebs,Don't tempt fate, you know I'm always ready to debate the relative merits of the Valois and Capetian dynasties. Especially once I've been into the Bourbon.
@jmk - you mean you don't have SOSG set as the home page on your phone's browser?? That's so 1999!
@Neeebs and MrC-Now you're talking!Coincidentally I just found a Monarchs of England iPhone app over the weekend. It's not extensive but provides good basic info and timeline - helpful to settle barfights I might get myself into from time to time.
Damn my employer's incessant firewalling. It has prevented me from being even remotely competitive in this round.Answer sent.
Oh, how I take offense to the "Kansas" comment.Oh how I was rooting for Northern Idaho. Or is it Iowa? Whatever.My favorite monarch stands as Aethelfrith, followed closely by Aethelred. Then there's Athelstan, King of the English. We just call him Stan.
So far (as always, please correct me if wrong):dusty leads rbnlaw by 3:41S Dittmore leads jmk by 2:34Quad lead Erin by ??Jason leads Greg NoPhoto by 0:02Loney Fan leads Fanerman by 1:56Keven C leads J Steve by ??Josh leads Mr C by 1:47Neeebs leads Betsy by 0:15
Æthelred was so unready, though.
@rbn,You're counting pre-Norman? Hardicanute. 'nuf said.
J Steve actually leads Keven C.J: 2:15K: 2:36Someone else do the math.
Jason leads Greg NoPhoto by 0:02This one's going to be a buzzer beater!
Can I throw in Prime Ministers?Because if that's true, then I say Lord Palmerston
Svein, Forkbeard was clearly an ancestor to Casey Blake.
Jason vs Greg headed for a NoPhoto finish?
And yes, thanks for the correction Dusty (J Steve thanks you too):dusty leads rbnlaw by 3:41S Dittmore leads jmk by 2:34Quad lead Erin by ??Jason leads Greg NoPhoto by 0:02Loney Fan leads Fanerman by 1:56J Steve leads Keven C by 0:21Josh leads Mr C by 1:47Neeebs leads Betsy by 0:15
I'm getting really bad at tracking these things.
Argh. That's what I get for spending my day taking care of a two-month old. Next time, the kid's on his own.
@MLASFI'll give you Palmerston. Pitt the Elder wasn't even the greatest Pitt. Mind you, if it weren't for that hapless tool Lord North mucking things up beforehand, Pitt the Younger might well have been Britain's greatest prime minister.
Good thing you agree, Mr. C. If you didn't, I'd have punched you so hard that you would lay unconscious on the bar room tile.
I have only myself to blame for not being up by :05. No more slacking. Over? Nothing is over until we say it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! And it ain't over now. Cause when the goin' gets tough... The tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go! (runs out to warm up for the 2nd half, stupid and futile gesture reserved for future use)
Thanks for looking out for me, Dusty!
Oh boy, see what I started?
well my bracket's already shot to hell. it's those damn mid-major conference upsets that get me every time. and i'm already into my bookie for 20 large.
@ErinTime for boarding school for that kid so that you can concentrate on the important things like SoSG competitions.
