Admit it, you all know you missed me …

Last week was the first vacation I’d taken in five years. Please, don’t ever let me go through that again! While it was fun sleeping in, catching up on every episode of “Entourage” and enjoying empty movie theaters during the day while the rest of the world is at work, I’m ready to start cranking out the football preview section. At least that’s what I had in mind before I arrived to my desk and found no internet connection. I called I.T. and they said they couldn’t do anything about it until next week. Awesome! Sounds like someone wants to slow me down, but it ain’t gonna work. After finally figuring out my password to log onto this blog I’m ready to make phone calls and feed you guys with football news. If there’s anything specific you want me to get at be sure to leave a comment and I’ll hunt down the news for yall.

This “welcome back” note isn’t exactly the red carpet rollout I had in mind, but it’ll do from Blog Mayor Goldenarm:


I know you said no way you were getting married on your vacation, but police reports pieced together from various desert communities indicate the following:

1. Apparently, you broke all “man laws” and went on a blind date.

2.Drank 1/2 gallon of Patron, ate two racks of oysters, took a 100mg little blue pill. Started feeling really good.

3.Hailed a yellow cab, demanded a ride to Stateline Nevada. Dropped to one knee, proposing marriage to the beautiful girl with a Marine’s jaw line, happy, oh so happy, when she smiled and in a husky, james earl jones kind of voice saying, saying Yes, Yes!

4.Called Robledo on your cell from the cab backseat, asking him for Webster’s definition of TRANS – VEST- TITE…and to stand up as your best man once you made it to Whiskey Pete’s

5.Cab blew a tire near the big thermometer at Baker and something snapped in your head. The driver stepped out to check the tire, and scrolled on the back of his jacket was “Mid-Valley News”…then it hit you, Hell Week is here! What am I doing? You ran from the vehicle like the old defensive back you claim to be…with Teresa the Tranny in hot pursuit..yelling desperately for her Latin lover – with only the lonely desert moon as witness.

6. Sometime near daybreak as you stumbled along some lost highway that intersects US 15, you were picked up by a busload of Amat alumni, returning from the annual conference on Delusional Fanatic Football Supporters.

    Hi Miguel,
    How about letting us know a little about Duarte and Arcadia High School Football teams also. They are local schools just like Monrovia.
    Thanks, would greatly appreciate it.

  • Miguel Melendez

    Marsha! Marsha! Marsha!

    Yes, I can definitely hit up coach Maddox and Dimalante.

  • !stang!

    Miguel , Have you heard anything about. DR?

  • Miguel Melendez


    I heard their nickname is the Panthers. JK … Haven’t heard anything concrete, but I’m going to imagine Muir will have a tougher time during nonleague. I’ll find out and let you know if DR reloaded.

  • Bob Anon

    Miguel, any updates on the new football field at Pasadena HS? Is that supposed to be done for this season?

    From the 210, it appears that Muir’s field looks great.

  • MOORS!



  • New York

    Call Sanders too, for Duarte.

  • goteamgo

    La Salle started practice (two a days) today – has anyone else started?

  • New York

    Rumor has it that Goldenarm circumvented the dead period by taking his troops to a camp at an out of state location….

  • Goldenarm


    I’m planning a security sweep to rid all surveillance from the GA residence and surrounding terrain. Sometimes you have no idea of your accuracy.

    There is no “dead period” in football.

    There is more a lull, a calm before the storm.

    “Dead period” better applies to a section of windless sea lying west of the Cape of Good Hope, where boats would languish for weeks, unable to snare even the slightest breeze in their sails. After days of stale heat ….eventually the currents brought the weakened and dehydrated crew toward the Cape, where they encountered monstrous waves, submerged reefs and shoals, and a storm tossed sky so dark that the mariners could not locate a single star to navigate by.
    …….bottom line, likely they could have made the crossing alive were it not for two week “dead period”…which zapped their strength.

    some moral in there somewhere.

  • Angry DENA DOG!


    I stopped by at PHS last weekend and the field looks great, they’re almost finished.

    One endzone reads “PASADENA” the other “BULLDOGS” with the “BIG” red, white and grey color Bulldog macot at center field.

    There are no bleacher/restrooms up yet,the new track is done, but the landscaping is still pretty ugly.

    Went by JMHS and the field there seems to be done, I did notice that in the east endzone the turf was rolling up in the corner???????

    Oh, and welcome back Miguel “The Moor” Melendez from the folks at 501 E. Hellman Ave……………
