A farewell to departing colleagues. Happy hour
Pacificos and Wii Sports
and I settled for a tie on nine holes, with Ty
a distant third. Courtney and Lorraine graced us with their presence. Even Connie
and Carey dropped by to torment Redneck
and show off the new glass
Moonlight Beach. Connie
and I traded off surfing and shooting
. The waves weren't bad - a refreshing departure from slow Del Mar. There was a bit of a crowd, but nothing terrible.
The almost-bi-weekly football
, Connie, and three of Connie
's friends showed up. Alas, Ty
was at home putting the finishing touches on Goat Cheese - an ebon relative of this
fine piece of automotory.
Steak and chicken wings. Scrubs. Tea Station. Jizake. Rayman
with all the roomies plus Jon
, Rosy, Jacenia, and Daryl 'til the wee hours of the morning.
Mission Beach. Matt, Erik
, and myself in the water. Connie
and Ben shooting from shore. The waves were great until Matt went in. Then there was nothing except a very crowded peak.
Tennis. Lots more hot sun.
. WRC isn't televised. LeMans is occasional. So MotoGP is the motorsport to watch. It was pretty good seeing Stoner battle Rossi.
Should be an interesting year:
- New bikes all around! But 800cc max? Lame. That's like when the FIA pulled rally Group B.
- The best rider in the world is on a severely underpowered bike. Stoner blew by Rossi in the straight. Even Pedrosa's Honda made it look feeble. I'm sure the Yamaha handles superbly, but it wasn't enough this time.
- A Suzuki in the top five?Sunday, 16:30
... for... 45... minutes.
at SDSU. A fearsome battle that ended in a 2-2 draw. Highlights were a brilliant free kick from behind the 18 and two chips over the keeper into the net.
at Brick by Brick. Great show. I was even impressed by the openers. Forgot how awesome metal sounds live.
