Hello again all, I apologize for last week, but to be honest, if I remember correctly, I had an article for you all for five straight days and didn't hear from any of you so HA! (And its my editor's fault that this didn't come out on Tuesday!)

Now, let me say that that my buddy Marty, Trevor and Lewis in Mississippi, my friends Matt Bomar and Joe Beling, I appreciate you guys and it was nice hearing from you again and I hope all is well.

Anyway, its getting to be that time of year again when I begin to think about the flight where I may be sitting in the plane in Denver waiting for the airline crew to hose down the wings of the plane with de-icer, and flying into the complete opposite weather, therefore causing the most unsettling turbulence that basically makes me very, very happy to land successfully.

Yes, I know it’s silly, and I know there are far worse things but hey, I'm a very paranoid flier and I thought I would go ahead and let you know that.

On the great side of all of it is so soon I will be on the same field as Greg Maddux and the rest of the Padres big league squad. Both Giles’ now, Hoffy, I mean the list goes on, but just to name a few cuz you all have seen the roster and I mean who wouldn't be excited to suit up with everyone on it.

Spring training is coming soon and I have been counting the days and visualizing each and every pitch that will leave my hand. Ok, so that obviously proves that I must have a lot of time on my hands and yes, it does, but I also have been watching some old school tapes of games.

I watched some basketball tapes and couldn't help but think about how much fun I had in high school playing basketball. Sam Decarlo was my coach, but he was also my friend, a mentor, and he also gave me chances sometimes when others might have turned their backs or given up.

I recently spoke to him and he has since moved and had two children, a boy and a girl. He is still coaching basketball and still teaching. I had so much fun and learned so much from this person. I would love to speak more of him and I will later and so many others.

But, for now, I think I need to let you all go for now. I know I may have jumped around this entire story so to even jump around more, just to top it all off, you might be sitting back in your seat and thinking to yourselves, ‘man, what’s goin’ on up there in his silly little mind...haha.

Here are a few choices of choices - just a silly little game that we play sometimes and I'm sure you all have done the same – I’m very curious to hear what you all think and I dunno just a fun game if you haven't ever thought of these things before.

Here they are. Let me know what you think!

For this article, I feel that there isn’t enough interaction so I came up with an idea. I am going to list groups of different categories and I want to know what you all think and if you are all as nuts as O dont think you are.


1. Grandmas Boy
2. Waiting
3. Super Troopers
4. Scary Movie

Out of those which would you rather watch?

1. Jennifer Aniston
2. Tiffany Amber-Theissen
3.Jennifer Love Hewitt
4. Tara Reid

Your choice...and only one

And here’s the last one.....

1. Shot in the crotch with a paintball gun
2. Shot in each toenail with a pellet gun
3. Two darts thrown into your thighs
4. Forced to watch ‘Yo Momma’ on MTV for an hour

Ok, until next week...
