Play By Play for High School Basketball

Greetings!

Over the weekend I got the opportunity to team up with a friend who has started up a live streaming business. His name is Ray and this business entity is called LiveStreamSTL. In addition to being on Facebook, his streaming service can also be viewed from his website and through YouTube. I have done a few screen captures of the event to show our mugs and also I have included the link in case anyone wants to check out my first shot at doing basketball play by play.

This was a fun time and all the coordinating parties involved were very accommodating. Should be a good building block for when we head out on location again this coming Saturday (December 15th) to call and bring live more high school basketball games live from Jefferson College in Hillsboro, MO. Check these out and tune in this Saturday!

Everyone have a great week and talk to you soon!

Peace.  <<12-10-2018>>

PitMad … The Twitter Game?

Hello friends.

It’s OK to relax in here, this is a relative cyber safe zone. But out in the social media realms, all is fair in love and posting. As of today, I noticed that the hashtag (#) PitMad was trending again. I noticed another one a while back and tried my hand at posting a blurb with a potential story. As you may have guessed, I received no bites offering me instant wealth or even an inquiry to offer more details. So today I threw out a story that I have had circulating in the back of my mind for quite some time. Continue reading “PitMad … The Twitter Game?”

Missouri does produce snow

Hi all! Or hey y’all! Your choice of which you prefer.

tanksnow

So it is once again mildly snowing here in the Show Me State. Tiny little frozen flakes of water are drifting down from the sky…only to disappear once they touch the ground surface. Why am I bringing this up? Because this is like the third or fourth time already this fall (not yet winter) that we have seen some sort of snow-like precipitation. This is quite noteworthy as I think we only managed two or three ‘snowfalls’ last fall and winter combined. The aggregate of those latter snowfalls I think was a centimeter.

Feeling Like A Bum

Hello. Do you ever just have those days where you feel like a bum? Before people get their hackles up about the term bum, let me clarify what I am trying to convey. Are there times where you feel like your clothing attire is sub-standard to those around you? In this society where everything is psycho-analyzed to the nth degree, it’s getting near impossible to have normal communications without asterisks and pre-managed disclaimers being proffered at every turn.

December 3rd, 2018 – Monday – Planet Earth

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I hope your November concluded well. There are 21.5 days until Christmas! I have done zero shopping for gifts. In my defense I was hoping my luck/skill with the lottery numbers (Powerball) would improve. Alas no dice thusfar, so I shall be forced to acquire awesomely appropriate gifts on a minuscule budget…same as before.

For those who are interested, check out my Twitter account (oohaw94) or Facebook (scott.latta.7) or my two podcasts on the Podbean app (The Freak Show and Sports
Stalkers).

Have a great Monday and we will chat again soon!

Peace.  <<<12-03-2018>>>

Communication is a must!

Hello and welcome to the back side of November. Most of the turkey population in North America is out of the culinary spotlight until next year so bring on the candy canes!

If you follow my other social media (Facebook, Twitter, podcasts, etc.) then you are probably up to speed on my feelings pertaining to contractors and freelance workers. And when I talk about this situation I cannot stress enough that the things I mention do not extend universally to all contractors and freelance workers. That is a major problem with our society in general these days is that a person will make an observation or statement and immediately those words apply to everyone of a nationality or genre and it simply is unfair and incorrect. Continue reading “Communication is a must!”

November 1st

Hello!

cute cuddly toy cartoon costume

I hope you are having a great start to the month of November. Obviously the term great is relative…so if you had a terrible end to the month of October, perhaps by just having a non-terrible day, that might boost the daily status to great by default.

Anywho, I hope to greatly increase my content over the rest of the month once the wedding is done on the 9th. Unless it goes down like the Red Wedding in Game of Thrones, we should be in a decent place afterwards.

Have a positive week and we shall talk to you soon!

Peace.

Squirm!

Hello!

Squirm_movie_1976

In a recent podcast (The Freak Show on the Podbean app) from this month, I mentioned a “B” horror movie from the early 1980’s featuring thousands of worms taking out their aggression on the human race when a downed power line sends immeasurable amounts of electricity into the wet ground. Little did I know, until I Googled it, but this movie was actually from 1976! Sorry for the inaccuracy!

Blogging during Autumn 2018

Good morning! Today is Wednesday, October 17th. Officially today is day number 25 of Autumn or Fall if you prefer. Pumpkin spice everything is all about and the temps are finally in the 40’s-50’s-60’s. The days are getting shorter and trying to escape the warm bed in the morning to stumble about in the darkness to get ready for work is becoming quite the chore. My mental outlook is getting so critical that I’ve started throwing in a couple of dollars to the Mega Millions lotto crazy pool – presently the Jackpot is estimated at $868,000,000 for the Friday drawing. With that kind of money I could finance a Pitbull music video or something as equally frivolous! Continue reading “Blogging during Autumn 2018”

Customizing Your Heaven

Good day to one and all! Hopefully this Friday finds you in good spirits, good health and able to buy one or more items on minimal cost that are enjoyable to be consumed!

As it so happens I was recently attending a baseball game for the Major League Baseball team the St Louis Cardinals. My ticket for entry was given to me for free (which is always nice) and I was able to attend the game with some of the Halbrook family. After going through the stadium’s security ritual, where I was declared safe to enter, I ran into a friend I know through softball. My softball buddy’s name is Patrick and his son Austin was there as well. I have known both of them for a while; I even attended Patrick’s wedding reception earlier this year. Upon seeing Patrick and Austin, we shot the breeze (talked) for a bit before I wandered away to visit the men’s room on the way to my seat for the night. As far as the location of my seat goes, it was pretty good. We were situated about 10-15 rows back from the right field foul pole with a pretty decent view of the playing field and stadium as a whole. Ray Halbrook was delayed entering the stadium with some electronics but later he joined me at our seats. Eventually (about halfway through the game) Jeremy and his dad also joined us.

Ninja Car Protector

jam

Good morning! This morning as I was rolling into work and decided to record my second podcast this week (https://scottlatta.podbean.com/e/sep-20-2018-60/). The main focus of the podcast was me addressing the horrendous traffic that we have been experiencing here lately in the St Louis area. My morning and evening commutes on a ‘normal’ day will usually take about 35 minutes each (roughly guestimating an average). But this week has been traffic ghastly. Auto accidents and stalled cars have been raining from the heavens it seems…without there actually being any physical rain to blame. Adding together my morning commute and evening commute from yesterday, my total drive time was in excess of three hours – easily more than doubling the norm for those combined drive times.

Game of Thrones – Season 8 (my guesses) at Spoilers

OK so here it is, my official spoilers for Season 8! And when I say official spoilers…I know nothing of what is to come. Except Winter of course, Winter is definitively coming!

What gets you excited?

america

Happy Friday! Today the calendar reads (not really, it’s an inanimate object after all) Friday, September 7th. On this date in history many, many things occurred! For instance, the city of Boston, Massachusetts was founded 388 years ago (1630). This is legit because Columbus quasi-discovered America in 1492 so it should be pretty accurate. According to the web, Interpol was formed in Vienna in 1923…kind of important. In 1979, the Entertain and Sports Programming Network (ESPN) makes its debut. Mark Whiten, of the St Louis Cardinals hits 4 homeruns and has 12 RBI’s in the second game of a double header in 1993. Sadly in 2011 a plane crashes in Russia killing 43 people aboard including the entire roster of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl Kontinental Hockey League team.

Friday Random Show Me Search

poppycock

Finally it is Friday! Thank the all-powerful entity behind the curtain of the universe for making this happen! So today, as I like to do on occasion, I have lined up a number of random phrases or nouns or funny words. From there I plug them into the magical Google search box and see what images are brought forth. Let us begin!
