Hep A Update. Volleyball. Hugh Hefner

Have you been following the outbreak of Hep A that we have going on in San Diego? It’s really a culmination of so many factors put together. Police not enforcing items downtown and the homeless population growing to numbers that we haven’t seen before.

Above is Mark Larson discussing what’s happening and what needs to be addressed.

Another video I’m posting is a discussion of the facts and myths of Hep A. Since 2006 we’ve made the vaccination mandatory by law in California.

As we’re getting into Octoberfest season and large gatherings – I just wonder about the safety and people not spreading it. It seems the best advice is washing your hands before and after meals and making sure not to put your fingers in your mouth.

Moving onto Volleyball…

I went last evening to watch some volleyball. It’s tough to watch. I think it’ll be known as the season of what could have been. With two starters out due to grades – it sure makes the season difficult. What’s odd? Historically both the girls Cross Country and girls Volleyball have the highest cumulative GPA’s on campus. It was a joke while my son was running cross-country how many of the girls had higher than 4 GPA’s.

Makes me laugh – kinda. I mean you reach a point where all you can do is laugh.

Passing of Hugh Hefner

Yes – for you Hugh – Heaven might be a letdown.

Saturday Morning and we’re Off

First the Fun

Man-of-Steel-Superman-Resurrection

Matthew Vaugh has admitted now that he’s in talks to possibly be the new Superman 2 director. Yes! Very good news for comic book fans/Superhero fans.

Cubbies Get Hot after Pitcher gets Tossed

This all happened because of a questionable not called third strike where even the batter was walking to the dugout. It lead to both the pitcher and catcher getting tossed from the game but it sure did fire up the Cubs offense. Every game counts going in and the Cubs have a laster focus going on right now. Let us see if they can keep it up.

My Volleyball Experience

I photograph volleyball for about three months out of the year. It’s enjoyable to watch and it’s enjoyable to see these girls that put so much time in the offseason see the payoffs for their high school teams. So last Wednesday, I went to Christian High School who has a very nice gym and I was expecting this to be a decent experience. Boy was I wrong.  The young students who were in attendance who came after their basketball practice were just absolutely obnoxious. They’d chant ‘zing’ or ‘Nice ass # whomever’ when a Valhalla player was about to serve. They’d literally sit their with their buddies and do a countdown from 3-2-1 and then say their rudeness. I’m all for fan spirit and cheering for your own team but don’t show up for matches to just taunt the other team. What’s worse was some of the Christian High Volleyball players would laugh and giggle at them in the stands (probably friends of theirs) and they’d continue it.

Coaches, Campus Officers, Principals, or Athletic Director need to shut that stuff down. Students need to carry themselves with at least a minimal amount of class instead of looking like your gum on the bottom of my shoe.

Golf Notes

Saturday tournament today. I really wanted to play but I’m not wanting setbacks with my wrist. So not entirely pushing things yet.

On a different note, but still in the golf related world. It’s girls golf season. I witnessed a Helix vs Valhalla match. First hole. Helix girl is teeing off. The ball is teed up and she takes a swing and the ball comes completely off the tee and lands an inch to the side off the tee. Just a tiny bit short of a swing and a miss. The coach tells her it tee it up again. Now I wonder where do you draw the line between trying to have fun out there and being a complete dick with the rules with these girls?! Obviously, the club struck the ball so she needs to play it as it lies. She was given bad advice by her coach and it should be an instant loss of hole. I’m not sure how that match played out.
