    Those of us who remember the showtime era of the Lakers franchise should cherish those old videotapes, because it’s obvious that NOTHING like that will recur in our lifetimes. Lebron may have honestly felt he could single-handedly will Los Angeles to a title, like we all hoped, but you can’t fight the ravages of time. The man, and this team, are beyond their expiration dates.

    I saw Gladstone baseball play. Not impressed, 3B can not catch a cold. He can’t catch a ground ball and later that inning the catcher had the guy out on a stolen base and could not catch the ball. Pitchers throw in the mid sixties, slow. All the teams in the valley not in their league would beat them. This is not the Galdstone of old, not even close.

    Gladstone Baseball still undefeated…. not showing them enough love!
    From T. Peterson: To be honest all high school baseball doesn’t get enough love. 3:00 p.m. start times when we don’t get off work until 5:00 is no bueno.
