    i hope this goes smoothly

    Thanks to all of you that participated this morning, I’m told we had more than 100 people sign-on during the hour, though just a few left comments, including our man K.H.

  • Good Idea Bin

    Gee Fred what a wonderful idea. Set a time in advance and encourage bloggers to do a “live” chat room style discussion with you as the moderator. Now where did I hear that idea before?

    Maybe you could do his at night and see it really take off.

    You know Fred that Pizza get together would be pretty cool where you’d announce the Top Ten or The Tribune Player Of The Year.

    I see T-Shirts and TV News cameras in the works. I know San Dimas and other cities have local new programming but I’d think the local news stations would cover it as well once it gets going.

    Now wouldn’t it be cool to have a Player of the Week. I have a friend who was player of the POW twice in one season, almost 30 plus years ago, and he still has the plaques hanging in his office.

    Well Fred it seems like the 10 a.m. time, on a Friday, didn’t hurt at all. Imagine if it took place “after” work. Maybe you could bring this up when a big time news event hit and have a similar discussion…like Mark McQwire in baseball or how about his brother’s book, which is actually a pretty good read from what talk show guys are saying.

    Either way Fred, congrats on the “Chat”…feel free to use any of the other “good” ideas.

  • softballdad

    Thanks for the pre-season chat Fred. Hope it’s an exciting season for all. Good luck to all teams in the SGV. GO AMAT LANCERS!

    Soccer? Really? Lucky thing I have a very good friend whose son is a stud for GHS soccer or I would really give you crap, for not hanging out and freezing with KH and myself tonight at Henderson. Hopefully, the rain will allow the games to continue during the weekend. Bring a jacket and your snuggie!

    You still have that dinner coming, I haven’t forgotten.

  • HAHA

    FRED IS A FOOL. HE SOUNDS EVEN WORSE WHEN YOU HEAR HIS OUT OF SHAPE BUTT TALK IN PERSON WITH HIS LITTLE TAPE RECORDER.

    FRED WHY DO YOU USE A RECORDER YOU MIS-QUOTE ALL THE TIME. YOU ARE A FOOL!

  • BullPen

    Somebody put some scores up from todays games.

  • BLAGGER

    Wilson vs Pioneer …..Wilson 14 Pioneer 1 Baltierra 1 hitter with 10 k’s

  • high school baseball

    fred i like that ideal of friday night game of the week,
    we could start it off this friday in the glendora classic,but make this one sat. thats the cmampionship.la verne t.v. will do it.they have zero to do in this town,dont think any of there sports re in play-offs.winterburn always makes a nice run with his ball club ,thats not intell june so why not call over there and see .if bonita in the game theyill do it for sure.so with the tie to nv we will see what happens ,i think they have too shut out ayala in order to advance to the top team in our bracket,it look like we were paid off by the mob ,throwing that game down the drain,i guess we could of loss,so life in hs baseball gose on.
