    Climbing Mt. Everest

    I used to do some climbing and expedition style climbing. I listened to a talk by Reinhold Messner on his adventures. Messner was the first to solo Everest and the first to climb Everest without supplemental oxygen. He was also the first to summit all 14, 8000 meter peaks also without oxygen. He always preferred to do the light alpine style climbing instead of relying on huge support teams. Many first ascents all over the world and some that have still not been repeated. He seemed disgusted at the huge amounts of money and support that so many people rely on to climb Everest today.

    New Mexico Forest Fires

    I drove by the Ute Park fire on Friday and our way up to Denver for a baseball tournament. Heavy smoke and poor visibility on I 25. 14 buildings on Philmont have burned. The rains must have helped some because it didn’t look too bad coming back last night. Very dry in NM this year. It looks to be a bad summer for fires.

    U of New Mexico Basketball should.......

    McDermott makes 1.4 mil per year and isn't ready to leave. Turgeon makes 2.6 mil per year. UNM can't even match McDermotts salary now after paying Neals buyout. Both of those guys are too expensive. Mark Gottfried is a possibility since he was just fired but nobody seems to really know where our AD is going right now.

    Don Rickles Tits Up

    Don Rickles was one of the funniest comedians ever. The man was just ruthless.
  6. Neal was an NBA assistant before getting hired by Alford then had 9 years experience as an assistant D1 coach before getting the head coach job. Borrego could turn out to be a homerun hire but the chances are greater of him cratering the program.

    LOTR vs Star Wars vs Harry Potter

    I like Star Wars, read all of the books and watched the movies. Read a few Star Trek books and watched most of the movies. Ive read all of Tolkien and watched LOTR. There is really no comparison at all for me. LOTR books and movies are on a completely different level and I don't have the words to show my appreciation. I read the first Harry Potter and watched the movies because the family likes them. I really don't get it or find it very entertaining. My 73 year old mother in law is an avid reader and just loves Harry Potter but doesn't understand LOTR.

    Mass exodus of players at UNM

    Jalen Harris is the freshman pg that may be transferring. Hunter is a sophomore and hasn't made a decision...yet. Harris has a bright future and I really hate to see him leave.

    Sen Diane Frankenstein

    I don't think she's made a decision yet which means she probably is considering running again.

    Sen Diane Frankenstein

    The senator from California is suffering from dementia at the least. She does not possess the faculties to competently question a man like Gorsuch. No doubt she'll continue to get re elected as long as she can draw a breath.

    Ok, this is impressive trolling. 10/10

    Shia planted his camera in Albuquerque in a high crime area. High crime even for ABQ. I used to live near there and there was lots of late night traffic, homeless and plenty of gunfire. After his camera was redirected and spray painted he blamed it on the gunfire being unsafe to his followers. That troll job was spectacular though.

    Elijah Brown gone?

    He got a T after intentionally tripping a Fresno player in the last and final game of the season.

    Neal got a two year extension after the first good year, no other extensions. His contract can be paid out over two years and any job he takes in that will have that salary deducted from his buyout. It's really an easy buyout compared to a lot of coaches and I hope they make the decision to get rid of him soon. I thought he would do great at UNM but his time is over.
