San Diego on Fire day 3

We spent the night in a evacuation center here in Spring Valley and got a pretty good view of the Mt Miguel fire.

This morning I got a couple of more pics when I went back to the house to check up on it.

Luckily for us, the fire seemed to be burning itself off because of the dying winds, staying away from the new homes of the La Pointe neighborhood. Those houses were just built a couple of years ago, right on fire alley.

Much respects to the firefighters and police for keeping us safe.

San Diegans kick ass.

Another reason to blame video games

When I woke up this morning, I flipped on the TV and channel surfed for a moment, making my way to Cartoon Network when a report about street racing caught my attention on Fox News. It was about something called "cutting the gap" or "cut the gap", where racers would swerve in and out of traffic. Obviously this is as stupid as street racing is anyways, but the NHRA rep being interviewed on FOX called the act something akin to a video game, where kids want that "need for speed", probably taking shot at the EA game Need For Speed franchise, where gamers race against each other and sometimes the police. The Fox News reporter asked him again about this new dangerous act in the racing culture and how games are to be blamed, probably wanting him to say it again, egging him on to get another anti-video game quote for their website, but he used the "need for speed" quote again, avoiding the issue this time.

Of course I don't believe video games are the cause of this new, extremely dangerous and idiotic act in street racing, and if someone wants to race, do it on a legally sanctioned race track, where your real skills are put to the test. Nor should I be surprised that Fox News, or any mass media circuit, would want to, again, accuse a new entertainment form of ruining American lives. It's just how quick they are to point fingers at the entertainment industry, than they are to dig deep at the real issue of kids given free reign to do whatever they want, without learning beforehand the risks they are taking within our public streets.

Pacman won!!!

YAY!!! JOY!!!

It was my first time watching a Paquiao fight live, so it was extra cool. The fight was pretty good, as Pacman showed little signs of fatigue in his rematch against Barrera. It was obvious Barrera's strategy of waiting out Pacman's super quick combos was not working, and by the time of the ninth or tenth round, his heavy handed right swings kept missing. Sure he had a few good lands, not counting that cheap swing he took at Pac with the ref trying to break them up, but he was losing his cool and didn't want to go out like a chump, or get knocked down again like he was in their first bout against each other. I hope to catch some more of his fights before his retirement.

About that counter down there, I'm still not sure why it's still going, or what timezone it's set at. Oh well, click on it and it will take you to Pac's cool Nike website. Does anybody know where I can get that cool Paquiao tee they have? I might have to bum them off my cousin's in PI. I want them now!
