    Okay look gang one of the reasons I'm proud to be a St. Louisan is that when we do wrong, we hold ourselves accountable don't try to deflect blang. When the Cardinals scouting director hacked into the Astros' computer system help make better drafting decisions, the Cardinals put him in jail for four years. When the Yankeeds or Dodgers have executives breaking the law of the land of hacking you never even hear about it because they go into cover up mode straightaway.

    We were supposed to be preparing for a 50-miler with the scouts today (to head out tomorrow), but a bunch of last minute dropouts led us to cancel last week. So now my calendar at work is almost totally free. I may head out after lunch and go for a long trail run by Folsom Lake, since the weather is expected to be in the mid 80s today. Excellent.

    Gots to say, I respect that Bon Jovi let himself go gray. Mick J and Paul McC ain't fooling anybody with the Just for Men look. (Okay that's hyperbole... Mick Jagger must be fooling at least one person.)

    Update: it turned out that the temperature climbed healthily into the 90s. I had a decent run, but the heat got to me and I had to walk the last half mile back to the car. So that was only okay.

    I have started developing some grey at my temples and just a bit along my hairline. I think it makes me look distinguished AF.

    I wonder why ArtisanFran never responds to the many call-outs he gets in the forums.

    Maybe his hash tags are jibbeldy.

    One of my best friends is going to be entering into condition of matchermony has asked that I serve in position of best man. Won't even lie this is going to be the second time I have served as best man for this person the last marriage was basically disastertron. (I think adding "tron" imparts a tone of hell of badness that I am trying to convey.) Perty sure this one will go better.

    Had some ramen at a local restaurant. They threw in some kalbi beef and a little kimchi. It was a delicious moment in Korean-Japanese relations.

    Lack of context and placement in this thread have me all :confused:

    Just saw the other day that AF still posts in the stereo thread. Perhaps elsewhere as well, but I don't know.

    I was in a similar situation recently. Marriage #1 was a spectacular mess, but this one is more promising. The contrast led to a funny moment at the reception. Despite the fact that I'm typically a solid public speaker and adept at things like toasts, my best man speech for marriage #1 wasn't great. I did the best I could with the material I had, but it's hard to praise a marriage of which you're highly skeptical to a woman you really don't like. My friend has ribbed me for my failing a bit over the years.

    So, fast forward to marriage #2, where I like the bride and generally support the marriage. I wrote an excellent speech that spoke highly of the bride, groom, and relationship. I even managed to quote the groom's favorite band, and I constructed the whole thing without even a hint of the prior marriage that continues to cast a long shadow over the groom's life.

    So, what does the groom say when I step up in front of the room, glass in hand, to make the toast?

    "It better be a good one this time."

    :uhoh:
