  1. I had a gut feeling earlier this evening as I was driving by a casino. I don't go to them very often but tonight I took the off ramp and followed that feeling. I left a couple hours later with close to $49,000 from playing the slots. $48,892.14 to be exact. Go with your gut feelings folks, that's the moral of this story. See ya'll back here on the board for football season. I've got some investing and traveling to do between now and then.
  2. Seniors Marine Dans and Gaelle Rey accounted for three of the four points for the championship. April 30, 2017 Las Vegas, Nev.----- San Jose State University overcame a one-match deficit in doubles against host UNLV to win the team doubles point and went on to win three straight-set singles matches and capture the 2017 Mountain West Women’s Tennis Championship. The Spartans (14-7) defeated the Rebels (18-8), 4-0. UNLV was the defending Mountain West champion. Seniors Marine Dans and Gaelle Rey powered San Jose State to the championship first combining to win at #2 doubles, 7-5 over Carol Yang and Cristina Moroi giving San Jose State a 1-0 lead. Dans put the Spartans ahead 2-0 with her 6-2, 6-1 straight-set win over Anna Bogoslavets at #3-singles. Rey’s 6-4, 6-3 singles win over Jovana Kenic at #6 ignited the San Jose State championship celebration. In between Dans and Rey’s singles wins, Sybille Gauvain, ranked #100 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s singles national rankings, defeated Carol Yang, 6-3, 6-2. Yang is ranked #48 nationally and beat Gauvain during regular-season action in San Jose, 5-7, 6-4, 6-4. Gauvain’s victory was her 100th in singles and doubles at San Jose State. She is the fourth player on this year’s team with at least 100 career victories. “We got off to a slow start in doubles,” said San Jose State head coach Chad Skorupka in a Mountain West Network interview. Gauvain and partner Marie Klocker lost their match at #1-doubles, but the Spartans’ #3-doubles pair of Tamara Culibrk and Miyo Kobayashi gave San Jose State their first win in the two-out-of-three format. Both scores were 6-3. Dans and Rey were tied 4-4 with Yang and Cristina Moroi, lost serve to trail, 5-4, but went on to win the next three games for a 7-5 final and the lead heading into singles. San Jose State will be making its second appearance in a NCAA Women's Tennis Championship. The first was in 2013. The Spartans will learn their next opponent, on Tuesday, May 2, 2:30 p.m. (PT) during the NCAA Women's Tennis Selection Show on San Jose State University women’s tennis Mountain West Women’s Tennis Championship San Jose State vs. UNLV Fertitta Tennis Complex, Las Vegas, Nev.

  3. Spartans pull off the upset and sweep the Rebels in Las Vegas to win the Mountain West Conference championship.
  4. Make up game doubleheaders can be hard to pull off because of travel plans. The airplanes are already booked and sometimes the refs have to call games short to make the flights. I saw it happen in a Big 12 game this year on ESPN3.
  5. FresNeck beat San Jose State tonight, 8-3. The rubber game of the series is tomorrow at 1:00 pm in Fresno.
  6. You'll get there, it took me 51 years to make it to all 50 states and Washington, DC. A great way to travel is by train. Great views, no traffic hassles.
  7. I've been to all 50 as well, and Washington, DC too. California is my favorite. We have the tallest mountains in the lower 48, fertile valleys, beautiful forests, awesome beaches and amazing deserts. And there's the incredible national and state parks located here. The Golden State is the best, that's why we get the most tourists (American and foreign) out of all the states.
  8. You've been doing a really good job keeping this board up to date on MWC baseball all season long. Thank you for that.
  9. Watching Oklahoma @ West Virginia. The Mountaineers have a sweet new stadium. Spartans @ FresNeck tonight for game two of the weekend series, starts at 6:05.
  10. Spartans won 6-3 @ FresNeck.
  11. You'll be able to buy it at a Pawn Shop for twelve bucks in a few weeks.
  12. I predicted it would take Trump a full year to take America down with him. So 100 days is just his warm up period.
  13. Trump has back peddled and softened on a lot of his "promises" that his Trumpanzees fell for. I don't know how they didn't see that coming. Oh wait, yes I do...
