There was nothing particularly interesting or noteworthy about the creek my buddy Chris and I fished, and I do use the word "creek" very loosely, because from Google Earth this system looks like an infected wound lathered in mud as if someone actually believed that rubbing dirt on it would make it better.
LATHROP – For some strange reason, the days of playing baseball simply for fun and to crack smiles have been replaced with $300 bats and Major League Baseball expectations as early as coach-pitch. That's probably why rolling into James Matas' free pitching clinic was so refreshing.

This morning on my way to work, I saw two bass boats filling up at the local gas station. I couldn't help to think what their costs were for the day. My bass boat holds 52 gallons of gas, and my truck holds 23 gallons. If I were to fill them both up, it would cost me around $300.

I was about 12 when I began to seriously fish for trout. Prior to that time I was simply accompanying my Dad along the stream and reeling in an occasional trout or two that he had hooked. While it was great fun splashing in the stream, picking wildflowers & harassing the frogs & tadpoles, it took awhile for me to appreciate the challenge of spotting a feeding fish, and then successfully planning & executing a successful stalk to outwit him with my hand-tied flies.
It's been a while since I've purchased any new equipment.
My buddy Daniel is coming up to Alaska this summer and wants to trick trout with flies, but he's never done it before.
Professional football is once again going to be a reality in Stockton.
Back on March 28, 2009, Kemba Walker came into Connecticut's West Regional final against the Missouri Tigers and dropped 23 points, leading his Huskies to a thrilling 82-75 win and ushering the Huskies into that season's Final Four.
