I like Huff's voice and presence, hope he gets a handle on his current troubles.



This, from Diane di Prima

so engrossed in the refutation
of the Imputed Self
I forget to turn on

the Giants game



Now more than ever I want to thank Diane for everything she's illuminated in my life.

Josh Hamilton, a one man wrecking crew tonight. Four homeruns in one game. Plus a double, for good measure.
Another early attempt at success

We went to the Reno Aces (Triple AAA. Affiliated with the Arizona Diamondbacks) game on April 22nd. The first baseman of the visiting Sacramento River Cats (Oakland As) belted three back to back home runs. The first homerun I swear cleared the railroad tracks and landed on Record St, behind left field. The second was a first pitch swing. Whereas I wanted the Aces to win, that performance was impressive.

Horse deals perfect game, first in Giants history. Nail-biter, some great catches and infield plays.

NL 8-0 AL, Giants cranking in most of the runs, Horse gets the win. Fantastic to see Buster anchoring the pitching after getting his ankle crushed last season, and La Russa as usual playing to win in a great sendoff.

Giants are something to watch. Surprises and who knows? There is something mystical about them.. They took that over from the falling Red Sox....

Well, I know this is baseball but hey, this country wore Greatful Dead uniforms in a past Olympics. They are the only country to honor fellow Lithuanian, Frank Zappa with a grand statue in downtown Vilnius, Lithuania and they have a shot a beating team USA. Go Lithuania!

Giants are a better team than St Louis. They will prevail, then onto Detroit.

"Giants are a better team than St Louis. They will prevail, then onto Detroit."

Right, they said that last year.

We already know the fans in the 'Lou are great, if not better than any Red Sox fans..... Didja see the intensity on their faces in game 3? If the Giants get down on themselves, they're finished. The Cardinals simply try to find a way to WIN.

Oh, and to the poster of Yogi Berra......you know where he was raised, don't you?
