    • Damn cool

      10 years ago

      Cybercowboy

      Tonight (well I guess last night now) I went to the Rockies game with Fastball and another buddy. When we got to our seats one of those people who walk around and take you picture then hand you the card so you can buy the picture online asked if we wanted our picture taken. We said no, but she told us that Cal Ripkin Jr was here and pointed him out to us. He was behind the batting cage while the Giants were taking batting practice. If you don't really know me, you wouldn't know that before the Rockies came into exsistance (1993) my favorite baseball players were Cal Ripkin Jr and Nolan Ryan. So it was neat being able to see Ripkin in the ballpark but he wasn't in a position to talk to him or get an autograph.

      We sat for awhile and eventually Ripkin came out behind home plate and started signing a few autographs, so I went over there and was able to meet him, get a picture taken, and get an autograph. Needless to say Ripkin is one of my heros and it was really cool to meet him.

      I bought the picture, but it won't be here for awhile so for now I kinda jacked it from the website

    • Bear stuff

      11 years ago

      Cybercowboy

      So you all know that I am working at a camp this summer. This morning I began my 10 mile hike into base so I could talk to you all. After a few miles I ran into what I would estimate being a 200 lbs black bear. Now I have been camping pretty much all my life. What I have always been told when you encounter a bear is to stand your ground, make yourself look big, and make lots of noise to scare away the bear. In all my years of camping, backpacking, and mountaineering this is the first time that I have had to use such bear frightening techniques. Now back to the story, I was on the trail and the bear was maybe 50 or so yards ahead of me also on the trail. She was a nice golden brown. She didn't do anything. She wasn't on her hind legs, she was on all fours just looking at me. So the first thing I do is widen my stance. Then I put my arms up in the air. I assume I looked something like a gian t letter X. The bear did not move. She just looked at me like I was some kind of idiot. So I decided I needed to say something to scare the bear away. So what do I think of to say? I started singing "Take me out to the ball game" There was no hesitation, that was just the first thing that popped into my head. So I stood there, arms in the air like Matt Holliday just hit a grand slam. I channeled my best Harry Caray and started belting out the song at the top of my lungs. The bear immediately ran away. But I went through the song maybe 5 or 6 times.

      I guess she wasn't a cubs fan!

    • 'ship

      11 years ago

      Cybercowboy

      So our IM hockey team made it to the 'ship tonight. This team has been together for 4 years, and this is our second trip to the championship game. Last time we lost 6-1. This time.....


      We take the CU intermurals champions tshirts!!!!!!!

      In a really tough fought game we ended up winning 3-2. Probably the best game we have played as a team. We went from most of us learning how to skate the first season to taking the 'ship. We ended up getting a quick goal from one of our star players who beat the goalie five hole. In the second period I followed with a tally of my own just sqeezing the puck under the goalie's glove and inside the post. The other team added a goal and we went into the third up 2-1. Early in the third the other team tied it up with a hard shot beating our goalie five hole. About half way through the 3rd, my line was out and we broke in on a dump in chase. The other teams Dman took the puck in the slot and tried to clear. Our center took the puck right in the chest at the blue line to keep it in the zone and it bounced right to my stick, and I shot and beat the goalie top shelf, just over the glove. We killed out the rest of the time and the other team ended the game with a last second shot from center ice that our goalie caught.

      Some of the most fun I have had playing hockey

    • Sorry!

      11 years ago

      Cybercowboy

      DU_Stars_Fan was catching up on some old journals and had been posting comments in my journals from over a year ago. Some of his comments were funny to say the least, mainly because they were made way after the actual events occured. But anyway, his comments made me aware that I have not posted a journal in a long time. So, sorry and here is the update from the world of Cybercowboy.

      I am still slightly drunk on the Rockies being in the world series. Simply put, it was awesome to see my team, in my home town, on the big stage. Here is to a successful NL Champs title defense and hopefully a World Series win in 2008. I don't know if we will be able to make it back to the Series, but I really think that we will be playoff contenders again. I think we will be in the hunt for years to come.

      School is school, and I am trying to drag my ass through it. I am really burnt out on it, and I am ready to be done.

      I am again going to camp in New Mexico to teach rifle shooting. I love to shoot and camp and if they want to pay me to do it, I am happy to help out.

      Other than that nothing really out of the norm. Hope all is well with everybody out there!

      If you haven't already, read this journal. It will make the rest of this journal make sense.

      We are currently still working on our website and videos, but production has slowed with the end of the semester.

      You are welcome to register and mess around on our page. Check it here and fastball, I promise I will make sure only some of your comments are deleted. Or maybe all of them.

      We would love for you to join and help spread the word about us. If you don't want to go to our website, you can see all our videos here

      I suppose I should get back to studying for finals, and stop this shamless plugging.

      It is. We got our bearings in Wed. They are SMALL!!! holy crap. 1/8" thick. That is small. Diameter is about the size of your pinky fingernail.

      it's so cool. The circuits guy found an IC that will do what he was designing, so we ordered that Wed. I need to the the Aluminum and one small sheet of plexiglass. After that it's little stuff from Lowes....shaft, angle iron, etc...

      It's coming together. The steering guy is almost ready to program the microcontroler, then we can start testing one of the motors. I'm excited! smiley0.gif

      That is a damn good site. I'm going to see if we can't get the size down a bit. The actual size of the wheels will be 7" diameter, 1.25" thick. We were shooting high to error on the side of caution.

      I'm smiling. That means I'm happy! Happy for Aluminum! smiley0.gif

      Yeah, he was the winningest pitcher despite having a near-6.00 ERA. It was 5.88 I believe. His road ERA was way above 6.00, and he doesn't go deep into games. Every time I have seen him pitch, I have not been impressed. He does not have good command. I keep waiting to see the form that produced such gaudy stats in the minors, but I have yet to see it. Six walks in four innings?! He wasn't anywhere close to the zone!

      lol I sure hope he's better than Zach Day because that would be sad if he wasn't.

      I clicked on your link there Cowboy, and Puerto Rico versus Cuba is only on Deportes.

      By the way, reading just DU's comments on here without knowing what he is talking about is pretty funny/creepy. All that bending and popping combined with bending over is a little strange.

    • DU_Stars_Fan

      I didn't pop it...it popped itself cause I bent it. Luckily it isn't over a large area so it's pretty easy to make due.
