About That Van Mo Show...

...it was totally on Saturday night.

I was just so quiveringly eager on Friday, y'know??? So I got a little carried away.
The great man was amazing, though. I would have to say that he has become a more remarkable singer with age. He only played about 90-minutes, however, and nobody in the audience had had enough by then. Not a single tune from Astral Weeks, either.

Still completely worth the L.A. road trip, and the cash.

Kirby Puckett, R.I.P.

Our thoughts go out to Puckett's family and friends, and also to Minnesota Twin fans everywhere. The bowling-ball centerfielder played baseball the way we all hope to live our lives- with exuberance and joy. A career cut short-and a life cut tragically short-will not dim our memories of Puckett.

Thanks...

...to those who have offered to assist in the "Top Pads" project. We think this is going to be a lot of fun to put together, and even more fun to read, as it unfolds.

There will be loads of guest-contributions, without which the project could never come to fruition. So again, thanks. We hope to begin posting with Padre #100 on March 20, which is, appropriately enough, the first day of Spring.

And for those on the edge of your seat, #100 is not Hideki Irabu.

Obviously Hideki Irabu isn't #100. Everyone knows he's a top 10 talent.

I had him right between right between Hoffman and Winfield, only a few slots behind Broderick Perkins.
