Scattershooting 06-22-14

Scattershooting while wondering whatever happened to the great

Tony Gwynn (RIP)

Sunday's Summary

My incomplete recap of the week

We just lost Tony Gwynn today (6/16). One of the best hitters of his generation and a good guy. Only 54 years old. RIP.

Funny. Casey Kasem not afraid to make fun of himself. RIP Casey. Remembering the great Casey Kasem with this classic Top Ten from 1993

It's about time. I predict this new emoji will get a lot of use. Coming soon to a computing device near you.

USA wins their first match in the World Cup against Ghana 2-1. It got exciting in the last 10 minutes. 

This is ridiculous. Just saw an ad on TV for Axe Messy Look paste. Apparently it is stylish to have messy hair but you need a product to achieve that look. It must work, the guy in the commercial got the hot babe as soon as he put this goop in his hair.

Two HOF guys. RIP Tony. Remembering Baseball Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn with this special Top Ten list from 2007.

I always suspected that was what was upstairs.

The times we live in -

Funny -

The defending softball champion WGTR unveiled their new 2014 jerseys Wednesday. More colorful but same great logo. Same results as the old shirts, they crushed the opposition.

It's #TBT again. Here are some photos from spring of 2004. Dad was in the hospital and for a while we thought we were going to lose him. My oldest son and his family, including their couple month old son, flew in to see Grandpa/Great Grandpa. Dad pulled through and lived two more years. This is the only photo of the four generations of the Holmes Boys. There is now another great grandchild but Dad died before he was born. Uncle Matt loved his new nephew. RIP Dad.

 Perfectly clear -

It was drive-in night on Thursday. Jimmy Buffett and all the local Parrot Heads were at the Coyote Drive-in tonight in Ft. Worth. The concert was broadcast live to 80 other drive-ins around the country. Very cool.

The Frogs have croaked. TCU is eliminated from the College World Series with a 6-4 lose to Mississippi. Still, a great season. 

Better than a carrier pidgin -

Thought I'd switch to pastels for the summer - 

Know the feeling?

For ‪#‎SongSunday‬ this week we have a great duet. A beautiful love song by Linda Ronstadt & Aaron Neville, two of the best voices of our generation. This video from 1989 caused some flap because it depicted a black/white relationship. Unfortunately Linda can no longer sing because of Parkinson's. Aaron is still going strong at 73. "Don't Know Much", but
I know I like this song.  

The USA team snatched a tie from the jaws of victory. In the World Cup match against Portugal they get a 2-2 tie. Portugal scored with about a minute left in the game. USA still in good shape to advance.
