Ping Pong Hustle


We were at the parkside friday night to see my friend nikkis band the departed. while waiting for them to go on scott and i decided to play some ping pong; nikki and i had been playing eralier in the evening. she lost. anyway while warming up scott was missing the ball, hitting it off the table, and in general doing very poorly. he asked if i wanted to play a dollar a ball until 21. i thought to myself that i would surely come up for he had been drinking as well. as soon as the bet was on though he got real good. spinning back handed balls flew by me with ease. the asshole hustled me. who hustles ping pong games? furthermore who hustles their friends at ping pong? i lost six dollars. watch out for this man

MLB All Star game 2007






I officially became Upper Playground’s Mascot on All Star Game day. It was a dream come true because I’ve always looked up to the great ones like Lou-seal , the Elephant of the A’s and the dude form the Phillies. Fun ass jobs and all sorts of retardedness. He are a few pics of me looking hot! More are on Upper Playgrounds blog.

We went to Oakland this morning to go visit Nike. It felt like a field trip. I saw this van in the parking lot of the Carrows were we had breakfast after the meeting.

We were supposed to have a race.


Not too long ago Richard learned how to ride a bike. Soon after this Richard and Kristen bought new BMXs. I would then hear complaint after complaint by Richard about how Kristen would ditch him on bike rides. This would provoke nothing but laughter on my part. If he cant keep up with a five foot girl on a bike ride, I think the problem lay not with her, but rather his bike riding skills and conditioning… “My bike is heavier than hers”, he would exclaim. Anyway, Kristen thought it might be a nice idea to have a race, I agreed. I have a little BMX bike as well, therefore it would be a race between the three of us and Richard would have first choice of which of the three bikes he would want to ride. This would remove the “heavy” element which was always his disadvantage in the past. Furthermore, Richard decided that the race needed to be on flat ground, no hills. We decided we would race in the parking lot of City College when school wasn’t in session. All of us were excited. Even with the advantage of picking any of the three bikes I honestly believe that Richard cannot beat Kristen. Two days ago, when trying to confirm a date for the race Richard backed out. I think he knows he can’t beat her too…
