It’s time to shed a bitter tear for the WWE commentary situation, because today Jim Ross, the best commentator WWE has or ever will have, is officially done with the company.
Jim Ross had a tumultuous relationship with WWE for years. The company thought he was too old and unphotogenic for TV, but they couldn’t find a replacement even a 10th as good as him, so he was brought back then sent home again more times than a person could count over the past five years.
The final blow came at the WWE 2K14 panel at last year’s Summerslam Axxess — Ric Flair was clearly drunk at the event, and Ross was blamed for not reining him in. Ironically Flair is once again a regular fixture on television, while Ross is still paying for the crime of not babysitting a 64-year-old man vigilantly enough. WWE everybody! By…

As some of you know from my last post about the Bay, I really enjoyed my time there. I was working from the office, I was seeing all the cool things they had around the place. And most importantly, I was being important. And plus I took public transportation each time, which was nice.
They were asking me questions and my input. I was working and giving suggestions, throwing out solutions and all that jazz. I really feel comfortable knowing that I can spend my career doing this and knowing I am useful. I am appreciated.
Another great thing was that I got to hang out with friends. Seeing my old college buddies was great. I even got a chance to see a friend who happened to be working at Amazon nearby whom I haven’t seen in 10 years I think. It was really nice to just be back in the Bay and totally relaxed
As you can see above, that’s one of the cool things along the walls at Yahoo. And I think I will be back sooner than later.
I am a Chris Paul fan. Been a fan of his since his rookie year. I own a Paul jersey from his time with the Hornets. I also own his first line of Jordan shoes.
When he joined the Clippers, I was sad because he plays for my team’s rival. But I am still a fan.
Yesterday, as I was at work half-paying attention to my computer, I saw the above tweet. I didn’t know there was a contest going on. I was thinking that there might be something going on with a trivia question. I quickly went on Google and found the answer. I just submitted it and it happened to be the first correct response.
That is all. The entire week of videos has been so good.
I am so bummed. He has a signing today in LA and I am still in the Bay Area.

I am so happy to be back in the Bay. Sure it’s mainly the South Bay, but I spent six years of my life here. It’s something. Plus, look at the welcome they gave me.
I had to fly out of LAX at 7:40am, which meant the shuttle that picked me up came at 4:30. Ooof. And what’s worse was when the shuttle pulled up, I walked out of my house and straight to the car door. The driver didn’t open it for me. I just stood there. Apparently he was standing next to the trunk waiting to see me leave my house. I entered the car by myself.
Then the driver walked to the front door and waited and even called my phone. He didn’t know I already entered. SMH.
I spent four years of my life here.
It’s not Thursday, but here’s a throwback story.
I went to St. Mary’s College High School, a private Catholic school in Berkeley. They try so hard to do the right thing and try to instill good morals to people. Fine, that’s all good and dandy. But at times, they don’t think things through.
Like this one time, the school decided to do a celebration to show our appreciation to the custodians of our school. Good intentions and could be a great deal.
I worked my way into getting a business trip to Sunnyvale extended from one day to four days. Great! I will be back on Tuesday, flying out on Friday. I won’t have a car so I will have to take light rail and/or bum off people.
Anyway, who’s free for something? I got a lot of free time in between my work hours.
