I think Buck would have approved of the gal dancing to Rufus (Pretty in Pink) Thomas at Wattstax. My goodness.

Good lookin’ to our man in Tokyo for the link.

!! WOWZERS... who is she, and how do I get dem digits??

On the other hand, Rufus is killing me with those pink shorts... I miss the days when we could wear anything in any color, even multi-colored, and it was all good; even if people laughed, they laughed in a way that made you feel like laughing with them; like life is or can be good if we want it to be.

I want one of those hats that the lead guitarist was wearing with the white ball on top!

Today, that would undoubtedly get some laughs! It might even "start" a trend!

At my home, we have plenty of butter...

Thanks for the shout-out Alex. Recently got Wattstax on dvd, Rufus was just the greatest. there.

[1] And the gal in the red dress..Whooo-eeeee! Love the two dudes in the floppy hats dancing as well..I'd love to bust those moves out one day but having an entire club go silent with horror at my unfunky "dancing"..would not be fun.

Btw, huge props to OYF and MonkeyPants for their comments a few threads down about the new Stadium. Guess the argument has been beaten to death but really liked what you guys said. Salaam!

News about the Wanger (Associated Press):

—New York Yankees pitcher Chien-Ming Wang threw 70 of 91 pitches for strikes over seven innings in an extended spring training game on Thursday.

Wang, who is 0-3 with a 34.50 ERA, was sent to the Yankees' minor league complex to work on pitching consistency. He allowed five runs -- four earned -- nine hits and struck out 11 against Philadelphia Phillies minor leaguers.

The right-hander has not been told if he will make his next start in the majors or the minors. Wang is flying to Boston on Friday to rejoin the Yankees for a weekend series with the Red Sox,

"Good day," Wang said. "Sinker down more, but sometimes got higher and the ball didn't sink."

Yankee pitching coordinator Nardi Contreras says Wang's arm strength is low, but adds that the slider is the best the Wanger has ever thrown.

That's a weird line, huh? Eleven K in seven innings but nine hits and four ER.
It doesn't sound like he's ready to return to the hill yet, but I'm hopeful that before too much longer he could be back in business.
