Just got home. Went to watch Nick's 11yo play baseball. Good 11yos. Then we left to watch Nick's 6yo play. HA! Totally different sport. One is baseball. The other is a bunch of boys playing in the dirt, having to be told a million times "watch the game," "look at the batter," EVERYBODY ON THE BENCH PUT THE BATS DOWN, etc. It was comical. When a ball is hit, several kids will run for the ball and fight for it, climb over each other, etc. They rarely throw the ball to make the out -- they run to where the batter is.
But when Nick's kid hit a double (he's a very good ball player, but he plays a lot with his dad and brother), one of the other adorable little byos on the other team high fived him as he stood on 2nd base.
It was a HOOT. And I got to hold a 10-day-old baby!!! He looked like William Shatner but I didn't tell the mom that.
hah! I was listening to random stand up comedy on Pandora yesterday and some comedian said it was better to watch little kids playing baseball than the special Olympics cause its ok to laugh.

The girl version of this is soccer. The first graders stand around in a group and run up and down the field in a group. When put in their positions , at least one chews on the end of her hair.Half teh time teh goalie is looking somewhere else or has so much equipment on that she can't move. By about 6th grade they can really run and keep a position and execute strategy, but not much before that.

I don't know the temper and culture of kids sports up by you, but my husband has been a soccer ref for close to 20 years now and has some pithy things to say about people on the side lines who are overly loud and aggressive to the kids.

Cool. But at the end where you see still shots from other YouTubes- did you catch the one where a gator ate a kids arm and it had the arm and hand hanging out of the gator's mouth?
Ewwww.

Curiosity- whatever happened at your old shop? Did they lay off lots of people? If you had not jumped ship would your position still be there?

Talked to the last remaining little indian in IT. They still have not told him anything. But other departments like finance are getting smaller and smaller every day. Chiefs and Indians being shown the door little by little.

Ha. The guitar world list had him losing to eddie van halen in the final four. Wanna be more saddened? I had no idea who he was...till I saw your post. Now i have a pretty good guess.

oh, and that one little indian? He checks one daily process to ensure that it ran. Other thsn that, he has no work to do all day. Nice work if you can get it, but definitely has an end date approaching even if mgt is not telling him when .

Jimmy Page is pretty amazing. I've heard countless covers of "Rock 'n' Roll," including Heart's, and while they usually are very good, you can hear the lead guitarist take shortcuts in the lead guitar line b/c they cant' do what he did.
I imagine Jimmy, Jimi, Brian, and Eric would think this is just a silly debate and that you can't compare one artist to another objectively.
It's alot like the stupid debates, we have in sports....like, Is Lebron the best player on the PLANET???....Better than Michael???...Kobe????...lol... .Best QB in this Solar System???

Friend, mechanical engineer, got word early this year that he was going to be laid off in April. HE started looking for a new job. Then they told him it would be July. Before his job ended, he found his dream job (medical device enngineering), with an easy commute to boot. So it really worked out for the best for him.

IT gets even sillier when they try to compare athletes from completely different eras of a sport, with different rules, playing styles, etc.

Like today's pitchers in baseball -- they don't compare to the pitchers from 40+ years ago who were throwing a lot more pitches in every game, with less break time between games.
