One Little,
Two Little,
Three Little

Corey Kluber struck out 8 batters in the first 3 innings
(setting a new World Series record), and the Cleveland Indians beat the Cubbies from Chicago, 6-0, in Game 1.

Cleveland scored two runs in the first inning, all that they would need, on a swinging-bunt-single by 3B Jose Ramirez, with the bases loaded, that never traveled 40 feet from home plate. Every Indian runner moved up 90 feet~

Then the next batter, Left Fielder Brandon Guyer was hit by Cubs pitcher Jon Lester's second pitch to him, forcing in a run and giving the Indians a 2-0 lead.  

But the big Indian of the night was Catcher Roberto Perez, who both called a shut-out game from his Pitchers, but also homered twice, with 4 RBIs:  A line-drive, solo blast in the 4th inning and then a monster, 3-run Homer to put Icing on the cake in the 8th inning.

Corey Kluber, whom I've highlighted here on my bloggie twice before for his skills as pitcher, was the winner, going 6-2/3 innings, giving up 3 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, striking out 9.

Indian Car

It's an Indian thing, 

I mean no offense or anything, but I'm just sayin',

it's something you good White folks, you good Black folks

can't begin to comprehend.  

It's why we tend to keep to ourselves....

The parting of the Red C's.

Baseball's Version 

My prediction is the Chicago Cubs, in the most EPIC, the most-talked-about World Series, since Ever.  

SEVEN stunning/defensive GAMES

Everlasting.  This will be a breath-taking World Series, between the two teams who have waited the Longest, to achieve a World Championship.

1948 vs. 1908,  


What's Up With You??

In less than a week, I've gotten more than 300 hits and more two dozen email requests to repost THIS VIDEO
by the American Poet Laureate Bob Dylan.

Meet A Goddess, Here & Now

Endorsement Storm Warning~ 

Keep an eye out for sightings of this extraordinary dog:  Tea, the Afghan female,

"The World's Most Beautiful Dog"
(from the UK Telegraph paper) 

"Tea", is her name, and she is Goddess, and a Madison Avenue money-pit. (Afghan)

I would buy any product, hopefully tea, but some hair conditioner, airline tickets, even
a Louis Vitton - ladies' handbag for $1,300, if encouraged/persuaded to remember/dial this
toll-free phone number by Tea--
I'm just sayin' ....

I'm just dialin' .... Mu'Visa card in mu'teeth~

Bob Dylan - Shelter From the Storm

More from the Poet of Our Time

A Mighty Hot Dog is Our Lord

just a little bit more here, from the Firesign Theatre.
From their "Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers" album, this golden nugget:

Including "Hymn 15-17  Zion, Oh Happy Zion, Your Beard, Our Mighty Mane (*Augusta, Maine)

A Happy Week End
to you all, Friends~   

It's Good
it's reeally good~  U2, I hope



Within Sight: The Promised Land

Reaching The Promised Land

Deuteronomy 32:52 -  Yet thou shalt see the land before thee; but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel.

        I do hope that I do not offend Jewish or Christian friends by posting the Lord's Words to Moses here in a post about the Chicago Cubs reaching the World Series~  
      It's just that to Cubs fans, about to reach the World Series for the first time since 1945 (71 years), and hoping to win the World crown of baseball for the first time since 1908 (108 years), the similarity between their tribulations and those of the Israelites and Moses DO come to my mind.

No one younger than 70 has witnessed the Chicago Cubs in a World Series.  Nobody younger than 109 has experienced a Chicago Cubs Championship.
(that means nobody on Earth)

Moses was 125 years old when he died, just after glimpsing the land to which God had guided him and Aaron and the Israelites out of Egypt, he'd be privileged to view the land of milk and honey from just over the border, just not pick out a nice lot on the side of Mt. Zion, to build.


I write this on Saturday morning, before the Los Angeles Dodgers with pitcher Clayton Kershaw, and the Cubs get together for their Game 5 tonight; 
meaning, that the pesky Dodgers have first one, then two more chances to deny the Cubbies the Promised Land.  
After that it is up to the Cleveland Hittites
to smash their dreams.

I've always said that even though the Cubbies are the EVIL and Hated Foes of my St. Louis Cardinals, I've always loved the story of the Chicago Cubs, the lovable losers on the North Side, the ne'er-do-wells of the National League.

I hope that they do NOT win the NLCS, or the World Series, personally; I yearn for the status quo, the hapless losers who, though they battled very hard this year, are held back again, by some fluke of destiny, like a Steve Bartman or some goat (NO, NOT A GOAT!  that's too Biblical!)

Like Moses.  "You may see the Promised Land, but you will not enter it."

Moi Pareil

Sorry for being absent all this last week, I've been diagnosed with Hillary's Disease, viral pneumonia and under bed rest since last Friday.  I felt good enough to "just" get out of bed today, the 1st time, and with the baby, I've lain low and out of sight.  I have had the most awful, deep coughing, pleghm and all, aches and pains- 
My wife has been my dear savior this last week, taking such good care of her two babies~

I will be around soon, like I say, this is the first day I've felt goood enough to sit upright, for awhile since last week.  
heres some Guitar Joplin in the meantime, until I am Full strength-- this makes me feel better~

Leticia has been my savior this week, she's taking care of her two babies, making phonecalls, apologizing for me-

Now, Something From The 2016
Nobel Prize Winner For Literature

Finally an award winner that we all 
can agree with, from the Nobel folks in Oslo~!

tangled up in blue - bob dylan from me.greg on Vimeo.

Everything  Bob Dylan reminds me so much of my dearest college friend and roommate, JAC. 
JAC was so into Bob Dylan, as he was kinda older than the rest of us college freshmen and sophomores. He was/is a wonder-child of the 1960s and 70s, so much so that he taught us as much about life, as any of our professors did in the 1980s and beyond.  

Lots of Bob Dylan, lots of the Marshall Tucker Band (my input), and 
lots of The Firesign Theatre at OU....  Q5X, James....  Q5X, until we figure out what it means~!

I remember so many nights, evenings spent with JAC, others, and I'd request (READ "BEG") JAC to get out his guitar and harmonica, then to please strum chords and sing like Bob Dylan, always anxious to hear his forceful yet often whispered-version of a Bob Dylan song.
These three are the ones
I remember JAC doing the most~

Then my mind turns toward our comedy: "Who's On First?" "Naturally", or
"Bombs away, Dad, -- Morning, Mom"
then, "Don't wolf your food~"  

And should you to ask my opinion, JAC would also win a Nobel Prize for Literature/Poetry~!!

Simple Twist of Fate by Bob Dylan with lyrics from StjepkoRS on Vimeo.

... people tell me, it's a sin,
to know and feel T00 Much [Within]
I still believe she was my twin,
but I lost the ring~

So this post is to congratulate Bob Dylan on his winning the Nobel Prize for Literature, and to fondly remember the extraordinary fellow who introduced me to Dylan: JAC.  
Not a week goes by, that he doesn't re-enter my mind to share a good laugh and a warm smile.
  Fond memories,                        & best wishes, bro~!!
NOT Finley~!

The Few. The Proud. The Clowns

Obscene and vulgar, now clown-faced child abusers are coming out of the woodwork:

Gotta be a Democratic based power surge, in typically Republican parts of the states where the clowns are seen....

Sublime Saturday, 2016

It's probably my favorite Saturday of the year today~  

So many of my favorite sports collide in a huge pile up on the final straight-away to the green, the red zone and center-field.

Like a flower whose single blossom is anticipated annually, TODAY is my Favourite day of the year, the second Saturday in October, when I proclaim my hatred for the state of Texas, the Chicago Cubs, and the Los Angeles Dodgers with defiant pride, BOOMER SOONER, BOOMER SOONER~, 

UNTIL the weekend is over, and my solid love for all things Texan, return.  

It starts any second now, I've got to go and sit in the front pew at the alter....

It's time for worship-

My 2016 World Series Prediction
is Still The Same

My Baseball Playoffs Prediction Hasn't Changed~

At the beginning of this years' baseball season, I was asked 'Who would be in the 2016 World Series next October'?   My picks haven't let me down.

I picked the Chicago Cubs against the Toronto Blue Jays way back in April.  Based upon their teams' pitching rotation, their bullpens, and their defenses. 

In That Order.

Let's review starting pitching, and see how I did, OK??

First the Cubbies from Chicago:
The Chicago Cubs have 4 out of the top 12 starting pitchers in the NL, all healthy and all 4 ready.  With ERAs all under 3.35.... 
The Toronto Blue Jays have 3 out of the top 12 starting pitchers in the AL, all healthy and all 3 ready.  With ERAs all under 3.48....
Nobody else comes close to those two.

to all other smooth operators,
this is for us lol

I just finessed a $12,000 home improvement loan for 15 years at 2.833%, through BOK~!
Yeah, we used the good ol' 'Indian with a bandaged hand' ploy to perfection....

Let the Privacy fencing/landscaping begin~!

Just What Has Mr. Trump Accomplished?

The following was lovingly lifted from a top comment at Breitbart(dot)Com, on a post entitled  "Mike Pence on How Hillary Clinton’s Disdain for Voters Disqualifies Her From Being President: ‘You Cannot Lead People You Loathe’:  

"Last night a friend claimed that Donald Trump wouldn’t make a good 
president; he is brash, he is racist, he is a loudmouth; you know the 
normal things people learn to recite after being programmed by 
television news. The one I loved was that,
“Trump is arrogant.” My friend questioned if one man could make “that 
much difference in the world today.” To my friend's credit, she was 
respectful enough to let me respond when she asked, “Really, what has 
Trump done?”

I said, “In June of last year, Trump 
entered the race for president. In just a little over a year, Trump has 
single handedly defeated the Republican party. He did so thoroughly. In 
fact, he did so in such a resounding way that the Republican Party now 
suffers from an identity crisis. He literally dismantled the party. 
Trump even dismantled and dismissed the brand and value of the Bush 

Trump has Obama petrified that Trump will dismiss programs that weren’t properly installed using proper law.

has single handedly debunked and disemboweled any value of news media 
as we knew it—news now suffering from an all-time level of distrust and 

Trump has leaders from all over the 
world talking about him, whether good or bad. Trust me, powerful men who
have been president before weren’t liked by the global community. I 
doubt Mikhail Gorbachev liked Reagan when Reagan said, "Tear down that 

Trump has expressly disclosed the fraud 
perpetrated on the American public by Hillary Clinton. He has, quite 
literally, brought Hillary to her knees—if you believe that nervous 
tension and disorders offer physical side effects and damage.

Trump has unified the silent majority in a way that should be patently frightening to “liberals.”

the press accuses Trump of being a house of cards, Trump has proven the
press is the real house of cards. He has whipped up the entire 
establishment into pure panic. Trump has exposed them for who they are 
and worse, what they are. George Clooney was right when he said Trump 
draws live news coverage of his podium that he’s not yet approached. 
Thanks, George, you were perfectly correct.

we see as headline news today are actually the last bubbles from the 
ship that is now sunk—meaning the standard news media, as a propaganda 
machine, has been exposed. They have no more value.

the same way Trump asked the African-American community this question, I
asked my friend, ”At this point, what do you have to lose?” We have 
mass cop shootings, riots in our streets, ambushed cops, double digit 
inflation, bombs blowing up in our cities, targeted police, #BLM,
a skyrocketing jobless rate, no economic growth, privately owned land 
being seized by the federal government, the worst racial tension in my 
lifetime, no God in schools, more abortions than ever, illegal aliens 
pouring into our country, sick veterans receiving no care, and a debt 
that doubled in seven years to $19 trillion. Are you really happy with 
the condition of the current system?

One man has 
done all of this in one year—one guy, and on his own dime. And with 
everything I’ve written above, you believe Trump hasn't done anything? 
You claim that you are afraid of Donald Trump? No wonder we’re in 
trouble. You can say that Trump is a lousy presidential candidate. 
That’s your right. Just don’t ever say he’s not effective.

Megan Kelly, FOX News, CNN, MSNBC, Washington Post, Rachel Maddow, the 
Huffington Post, the New York Times, Raleigh’s News and Observer, the 
AP, Don Lemon, Jake Tapper, and many more, failed to implement their 
collectively orchestrated lie on the American people against Trump, is 
actually a massive testament to Trump. The press colluded pure 
propaganda to accomplish his demise … and they have collectively failed 
and miserably.

Here's just one example of how badly
America is injured right now. There are high school football players on
their knees during the national anthem simply because the press used as
propaganda to program those kids to do that very thing. But, these kids
are mimicking NFL stars the same way the same kids chooses which brand 
of football shoe to purchase—they're overtly brain-washed to do that 
very thing.

Now, we have a generation of children who hate America.

problem isn’t that little children are on their knee in collective 
disrespect of America. Our problem is that America is on her knee from 
collective disrespect by Americans.

You can 
disrespect America all you want. But, it’s high-time you respect the 
silent majority. Because they’re not simply the “silent majority” as 
you’ve been trained to believe when Hillary calls them “deplorables.” 
The fact is, they are simply the majority. And now they're no longer 
silent either. Donald Trump changed all of that, single-handedly and 
within one year.' 
--by Be Forbes

I just felt like this needed to be shared here, where we all loathe Hillary, too~.
