Mid 90's...Painful loss to Seattle in the ALDS, Goodbye to Donnie Basball. Okay, Pass the Mary Jane.
Then, a Beyond Real ending to the decade. Jigmaster indeed.

Did anyone see the piece on ESPN today about a "Global World Series" (ridiculously redundant name), in which it is reported that Bud and the Japs are both interested in having the nations' respective champs play one another after the end of the season? Great idea, unless you're a Japanese person clinging to the notion that your baseball is better than that played in America.

[2] How so, the all star games between the two countries have been competitive. Personally, I don't think it will work due to the lengths of the seasons. The seasons also don't synch up. But it would be nice to to maintain the postseason all star games.

[0] I like the second one better, seems like he's more into what he's talking about. I liked Tha Liks to a certain extent, but it seems like they only ever rap about drinking and smoking weed, so I could never get into them.

I remember when I lived in Dee Cee, one of my roommates was the host of a rap show called The Bridge and she interviewed quite a few stars back in the day; she invited Tha Liks' over to the house (back when they were still known as Tha Alkaholiks), and the first thing they asked me was if I knew where the good weed spots were in the neighborhood. Then they all dashed upstairs for their session. I was not flabbergasted, since I was probably the weird college cat in a houseful of college students who didn't smoke at all, but I was not impressed either.

Will, I hear you about their limited content--smoking weed, drinking--but their first two records (and parts of the third one, liquidation) are just filled with great production and fun rhymes.
